After a long series of rumors and leaks, Call of Duty: WWII has been confirmed. Activision once again has chosen Sledgehammer Games studios to develop another game for the franchise, they also developed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (2011) and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (2014).
The release date of Call of Duty: WWII is set to be on November 3 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Activision has already confirmed the release date on the game’s website and there will also be a preorder beta ahead of the release.
The game will have single-player campaign that will be set in World War 2, has the game title says, and the single-player story follows the US 1st Infantry Division as they fight their way through the European theater of the war. Missions include the D-Day invasion of Normandy and Battle of the Bulge. Although you primarily play as the young, inexperienced Private Red Daniels, there will also be a mission that casts you as a woman fighting in the French resistance.
We can expect the game to have multiplayer, but the full multiplayer reveal is coming at E3 in June, where it will also be playable on the show floor. However, we do know a few pieces of information. One brand-new addition for the franchise is Headquarters, a place to socialize that will feature “recognition and awards.” It’s not clear what exactly those rewards will be, but it sounds like a base of operations outside of multiplayer lobbies. Multiplayer introduces a new War Mode, which places you in “iconic World War II battles” with objective-focused, Axis-versus-Allies team gameplay. It also lets you choose class-like Divisions, “including Infantry and Armored Divisions.”
Has for co-op, Sledgehammer Games confirmed a zombie mode and promised more information on Call of Duty: WWII as a whole at E3 in June.
