Call of Duty returns to WWII roots 3 November

Brodie Fogg 27 April 2017 NEWS


After a string of futuristic titles, Activision hopes to bring a more grounded and gritty experience to Call of Duty fans.

Last year we saw two of the world's most popular first-person shooters go head to head as they do year after year. The only difference was: Battlefield stunned audiences with a heartfelt portrayal of World War I and Call of Duty released another futuristic foray that failed to leave a lasting impression.

Many CoD fans have been barracking to head back to World War II for some years now, ever since 2008's Call of Duty: World at War.

After a few leaks and subtle hints, Activision finally answered the call and are sending players back to the trenches for a gritty, realistic portrayal of the heroics and sacrifice of soldiers from the 1st Infantry Division. This tender look at the victims of war is partly what made Battlefield 1 such an engaging single-player experience. Here's hoping Activision and Sledgehammer Games can pull off a similar feat.

The trailer has it all: An intense Normandy scene, a scuffle over how many were left behind and Josh Duhamel chiding you for your farmer boy background. There's also what I think is a helmeted Clark Gregg (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D) at the 1:30 mark but I could be totally wrong on that one.

Not so gritty is realistic is the return of Call of Duty's beloved Zombies mode. This Nazi Zombies mode will offer a cooperative, story-driven experience. While we're not sure when we'll get more information on Call of Duty: WWII's Nazi Zombie mode, Activision has confirmed we'll see more Multiplayer at this year's E3.

Call of Duty: WWII arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC 3 November 2017.
