We finally get a look at the campaign for the much anticipated Call of Duty WW2
Activision have released a new trailer focusing on the campaign mode for their latest Call of Duty title: WW2 – or by it’s full title, Call of Duty WW2: Back to Our Roots with Boots on the Ground. If you haven’t already seen it, take a look below!
The trailer shows off a story that seems reluctant to pull any punches when it comes to adapting the gruesome scenes of the Second World War. And whilst you’ll hear a few phrases that seem to be taken from the ‘How to do a War Game’ book, the phrase “We thought we knew what war was” springs to mind, the trailer has nevertheless won many people over.
A big part of this is the clear departure from the Hollywood-esque spectacle of Infinite War, with the trailer doing well to focus on tense moments between a Jewish soldier and a Nazi officer. And yes, there are still blockbuster moments within the trailer, though even these scenes are far more reminiscent of the classic Modern Warfare series and World at War titles p- and that can only be a good thing, right?
An interesting choice for an ending to the trailer, we get a suggestion that – contrary to what Activision said some months ago, we may get a portion of the game in which we play as German soldiers – with an American soldier looking down at the player and asking, “Well ain’t that something Fritz?” This could always be a misdirection, but it seems odd for Activison to choose to end the trailer on this note.
So, what do you think? Has the trailer won you over, or are you still unsure about Call of Duty WW2? Let us know in the comments below, or be super modern and tell us on Twitter @GGSGamer
