Here’s what we know so far about the latest game from the popular Call of Duty franchise that will be released this year.
Looks like Call of Duty won’t be going back into space for a while now, for their upcoming game is set during the Second World War. After a series of popular modern and advanced warfare games, their latest installment, Infinite Warfare wasn’t as captivating. But today they are kicking it old-school with Call of Duty: WWII.
The developers are promising “a breathtaking experience that redefines World War II for a new gaming generation,” by taking you back to probably before you were born on the beaches of Normandy.
As a player, you will be going a squad fighting alongside the Allied forces pushing through France into Nazi Germany. While reliving some of the fiercest battles and wars in modern history, you’ll get to use WW2-era weaponry under the same, realistic, combat conditions the soldiers fighting the war experienced.
One thing that will make the gaming experience different from the previous Call of Duty games is the absence of health regeneration during campaign play.
You read correctly, you will not be able to hide from battle for a few seconds and return brand new. Instead, you’ll have to rely on the medic on your team to give you health packs.
This installment also includes a zombie dub-game, but this time they are Nazi Zombies – as if zombies weren’t hated enough. The exhausted Third Reich will make one last stand to hold their grounds with the help of an army of undeads.
The game is scheduled to be released on November 3 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and is said to include a mysterious third mode – other than single-player and multiplayer – called co-operative mode.
