A new game is set to shaken the competition within the shooter video game genre, and this is no other than Activision's Call of Duty: WWII.
That being said, you can find all the interesting details we know about 2017's Call of Duty: WW2 below. Instead, the series is going right back to where it was with fast-paced titles like Modern Warfare and World at War, but with expected twists.
Infinite Warfare still was the best-selling game of the year, but for the series it did underperform, while Battlefield 1 did wonders for EA, that the path became pretty clear. But if we're to go by Activision's general cycle for these things, it will be landing some time towards the end of this year. Sledgehammer Games is behind Call of Duty: WWII, the studio that co-developed Modern Warfare 3 and made its solo debut on 2014's Advanced Warfare.
Technology and gaming have drastically changed since the first Call of Duty, and even since the release of World at War. See the absolutely stunning BF1 for reference.
Call of Duty: WWII pre-orders at participating retailers includes access to the Private Beta, available first on PlayStation®4, scheduled for later this year.
With developer Sledgehammer Games gearing up for the worldwide reveal of Call of Duty: WWII on Wednesday, a bunch of rumors and leaks are popping up. Then it's claimed that a cooperative mode is in the game, complete with a "new and original story".
Call of Duty: WWII releases on November 3 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. We wonder if this is a hint of four-player co-op for the new campaign. Daniels and other members of the USA 1 Infantry Division will fight across World War II's European Theatre, primarily in 1944 and 1945.
You don't have to wait until November to play the new Call of Duty game ... as long as you preorder it.
The marketing item of "Call of Duty: WWII" also revealed that players will be fighting sometime in Normandy on D-Day, and they will be battling across Europe through some iconic locations in World War II time.
Evidenced by past title's Season Passes, Activision may be providing continued DLC support for Call of Duty: WWII's standalone co-op game mode.
