Call of Duty is going back to its roots this November, with Sledgehammer Games behind the helm. What better era than World War II to take back the series to its familiar boots on the ground gameplay. Call of Duty: WWII does just that, but more importantly its single-player campaign looks to be exceptionally great. A newly released trailer for Call of Duty: WWII was revealed, unveiling its single-player component. The most surprising part of the story trailer was how intense and gritty everything looked, showing off impressive visuals and character animations.
“Call of Duty: WWII tells the story of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, a young recruit in the U.S. First Infantry Division who experiences combat for the first time on D-Day, one of the largest amphibious assaults in history. After surviving the beaches of Normandy, Red and his squad will fight their way across Europe, engaging the enemy in iconic battle locations such as the Hürtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge, as they make their way into Germany.”
Although Call of Duty is mainly known for its popular multiplayer, its story campaign was always a welcomed one. For me personally; I enjoyed the earlier games in the series, the stories felt a lot more grounded and familiar. It wasn’t until the franchise moved into the future that I began to lose interest in the single-player, I couldn’t find myself to care enough to finish them. Its been a long time since we last saw a Call of Duty set in World War II, especially one on the scale of this one. I am excited to see how Sledgehammer Games handles the story in WWII, which I’m hoping is as good as it looked in the trailer. I guess we’ll all find out when the game arrives on November 3rd.
