Call of Duty is returning to its historical roots this year with Call of Duty: World War ll. Sledgehammer Games promises to deliver a blockbuster experience from a dramatic story draw from dramatic and iconic moments from the second world war in historically important locations such as the beaches of Normandy to the Hurtgen Forest.
The time is nearly upon the world, for the war to start all over again for a generation. The roots have been unearthed and the call will be answered, Call of Duty has returned to World War 2. Not only have we had numerous beta's and trailers highlighting the fact that this return is swiftly incoming, we have 2 trailers reminding us of the social side of gaming.
I feel Activision and Sledgehammer Games are feeling the pressure of returning to the genre that made the series so successful. The original Call of Duty games on PC knocked off the then leaders of war games Medal of Honor off the top spot. Call of Duty then pursued a futuristic direction, but if Battlefield 1 is anything to go by, the market has changed.
So here is the multiplayer reveal for Call of Duty WWII that features all manner of weaponry, vehicles and of course, some bloody trench shovel warfare (it was bows a couple years ago, now is the age of the shovel).
