Storm the beaches in the first trailer for Call of Duty: WWII

After almost 10 years of taking place in the future or near future, Call of Duty has returned to its roots with Call of Duty: WWII. Although the name is a little too straightforward, the reveal trailer shows us a style of game we haven’t seen in a long time from them. Take a look:

The last Call of Duty game that took place in World War II was Call of Duty: World at War back in 2008, and it was a darker, more mature take on the games set in that time period. It’s also no secret that the games have changed a lot since that time in terms of graphical prowess and storytelling. It will be exciting to see nine years of progress come together in this entry made by Sledgehammer Games, known for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Along with this and last year’s Battlefield 1, we seem to be in the middle of a World War Renaissance if you will. With the extremely negative reception to the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer, it’s obvious that audiences are tired of futuristic shooters in the same way they were tired of World War II games in the 2000’s. Since Sledgehammer has been making this title since 2014, it’s a wonder what the other development studios for the series like Infinity Ward and Treyarch are up to now. Guess we’ll find out next year.

During the Global Reveal Livestream, it was announced that the game would be playable on the show floor at E3 this year, especially since it’s open to the public. If you aren’t able to go to E3, you can pre-order the game to receive access to the Private Beta, although it’s safe to assume there will be a public one released later.

So are you excited for Call of Duty going back to its roots, or do you wish they would explore another war like the Korean or Vietnam wars? Sound off in the comments section! Call of Duty: WWII will be released on November 3, 2017.
