Call of Duty WW2’s World Reveal, Story, Multiplayer & Zombies-1
Boots-on-the-ground Call of Duty

As mentioned from last week’s announcement, the Call of Duty WWII livestream reveal was today and just ended a few hours ago. The internet is buzzing with anticipation for the next installment of Activision’s blockbuster video game.

There has been so many leaks and rumours but now we’ve got juicy details from Sledgehammer Games about their upcoming title.

Here is what we gathered so far.

Story and Setting

Call of Duty is going back to World War II, at a time the world was still devastated by the first World War. It is set primarily between 1944 and 1945.

The gameplay is classic WWII stuff – beach landing, trading fire with enemy soldiers in open forests. The game follows a group of soldiers, one of them played by Transformers actor, Josh Duhamel, in this unique story.

Multiplayer

Probably the most exciting multiplayer intel talked about from the livestream was the “Headquarters” feature – A new social space to talk with other players whenever you’re not in a match.

The game is confirmed to supports up to 48 players online. Likely only for the Headquarters area, but fingers crossed it’s also for Multiplayer too.

Call of Duty WWII promises to engage players in grounded combat across many iconic locations such as Hürtgen, Normandy, Omaha Beach Landings and much more across Western Europe.

A Return to “Roots”

It’s true the franchise has deviated from past titles and it probably could do with a little back-paddling. It looks to be running on a new engine and the graphics seems superior to previous titles.

After years of boost jumping, exoskeletons and other bad features (most of them introduced under Sledgehammer’s watch) WWII promises to make it up to the fans with a return to old school trench warfare and a new arsenal of weapons.

The phrase ‘boots on the ground’ implies no more gimmicks this time. Good!

“For fans in general, a return to the strategic, grounded fast action of multiplayer where we began? Frankly, people are going to go bananas. It’s going to be great.”, said Sledgehammer Games’ Michael Condrey.

A New Zombie Story

Nazi Zombies will be making a triumphant return for #CODWWII

Sorry Richtofen fans but it seems the Call of Duty WWII Zombie mode won’t have anything related to Zombie games from previous Call of Duty titles. Fingers crossed for an easter egg at least.

All we know so far is that there will be Third Reich Zombies.

Always with the zombie killing. Someone should start a boycott in support of zombie rights. #ZombieLivesMatter
