With a Call of Duty: WWII reveal coming next week, it looks like marketing material has started to surface…
According to this leaked image, fans who pre-order the game will receive access to the multiplayer beta later this year – an unsurprising move given the last two games also had betas. However, more interesting is the reveal of the game’s official description. The Campaign mode will take players to Normandy on D-Day as well as other historical locations across Europe, while Multiplayer will feature ‘grounded, boots on the ground’ gameplay. There will be a new co-operative mode although not much else is known other than it will be ‘high-octane’ and a ‘new and original story’.
Here’s the game description (thanks LackingAGoodName):
“Call of Duty returns to its roots with Call of Duty: WWII–a breathtaking experience that redefines World War II for a new gaming generation. Land in Normandy on D-Day and battle across Europe through iconic locations in history’s most monumental war. Experience classic Call of Duty combat, the bonds of camaraderie, and the unforgiving nature of war against a global power throwing the world into tyranny.”
The Definitive World War II Campaign
“Call of Duty: WWII tells the story of an unbreakable brotherhood of common men fighting to preserve freedom in a world on the brink of tyranny. Players enlist in a gritty intense journey through the battlegrounds of war. The campaign features bold, lifelike visuals with the kind of blockbuster cinematic authenticity that only Call of Duty can deliver.”
Boots on the Ground Multiplayer
“Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer engages players grounded, fast-paced combat across many of World War II’s most iconic locations. Players will also enjoy exciting new ways to interact and socialize with their friends and the Call of Duty community.”
“Call of Duty: WWII’s co-operative mode unleashes a new and original story. Play with your friends in this next-level standalone game experience full of unexpected, adrenaline-pumping moments.”
As always, take all this information with a pinch of salt until confirmed by Activision.
Ahead of the reveal it looks like Activision will be teasing the game across social media channels, as shown by the first teaser below.
