The first trailer for Call Of Duty: WWII was unveiled at this week’s Sony E3 conference. The preview showed fans what they can expect when the game gets released to the public later this year. Sony hopes the newest upgrades will make the game’s fourth WWII installment its best version yet.
Developers Sledgehammer Games have a few tricks up its sleeves with the latest edition of Duty. Going back to WWII, players battle their way through Europe in the mid 1940’s. Basic warfare is not enough for the developers though, as users now have the option of fending off a zombie attack that has broken out at the same time. Several new weapon attachments will help gamers perform through these strenuous battles.
Although the real WWII did not feature vast chemical warfare, the gas mask plays a vital role in protecting characters in the new game. Enhanced live environments are another reason to get excited about this title. User-generated destruction is on display at an all-time high in the newest version of Duty. The minimalistic look combined with mass chaos has gamers thrilled for the franchise’s future.
Versions of the soon to be released title will be available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. WWII follows in the footsteps of Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare which left a large portion of fans disappointed. Many complained that the game was too futuristic and the franchise needed to get back to basics. Sony responded by sending the newest game back to WWII; a setting the masses had been clamoring for.
The Call of Duty series has become an overwhelming success for publisher Activision. The first-person shooter game was groundbreaking when it first burst onto the scene in 2003. Since then, the game has featured 20th century, modern, and futuristic timelines. This latest version of the game returns to the original 20th century format after launching more than 25 sequels covering various eras. As of 2016, the franchise had sold over 250 million copies; raking in a grand total of more than $15 billion.
Call Of Duty: WWII has an official release date of November 3, 2017.
