It’s back to basics for Call of Duty.
Call of Duty: WWII puts you in the shoes of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, a member of the Big Red 1 Infantry Division during the American push into France from 1944 to 1945. The story trailer above paints a more centralized mission approach than the globe-trotting, multiple character timeline the original Call of Duty games were known for. A co-operative game mode has been announced as well, though it is unclear if it will be a separate set of missions from the main campaign.
According to Polygon, multiplayer will include objective based game modes centered on territorial control and there will be a brand new social space called Headquarters.
The game is developed by Sledgehammer Games, developers behind 2014’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and collaborators on several other franchise projects. This marks the first time Call of Duty heads back to WWII since 2008’s World At War, and fans should be happy to know that a lot of the brutality of that game is going to be revisited in this installment.
Expect Call of Duty: WWII to consoles and PC on November 3 with a private beta scheduled for pre-order players sometime before. Oh, and Nazi Zombies are back.
