Following its official announcement last week, this year’s Call of Duty: WWII has finally received its first-ever trailer.
Hosting a livestream moments ago, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg stated that the new installment “brings back the intense, visceral, boots on the ground gameplay” for the popular franchise.
He also added that Call of Duty: WWII is a “gritty and authentic” take on “the intense bonds of brotherhood that came from everyday people.” The same notion was shared by studio head and co-founder Michael Condrey earlier this week that Sledgehammer Games invested a lot of time in researching these past two years. The goal was to make Call of Duty: WWII as accurate as possible, and reenacting every setting in accordance with historical evidence. Sledgehammer Games believes that it was successful in doing so.
In addition, Hirshberg confirmed that a private multiplayer beta will take place later this year. While details were not shared, an earlier leak suggested that the only way to be part of the upcoming beta is to pre-order the game. As of yet, there is no confirmation of whether the developer will host an open beta later on. It would be incredibly surprising if that was the case. Hence, we can be hopeful about getting some sort of early access without having to secure an early copy.
Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled to release on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
