First trailer: 'Call of Duty: WWII' seeks to up authenticity, fidelity

Speaking with Polygon in a recent interview, Sledgehammer Games highlighted that its development team wanted to bring to attention how World War II was a global concern.

We have some good news for all Call of Duty fans, as Activision has just released the first "Call of Duty: WWII" trailer, confirming that this game is in the works and that it will be released this year.

During the worldwide reveal of Call of Duty WW2 on 26 April 2017, Activision announced that the upcoming WW2 shooter will be released in the United Kingdom on 3 November 2017, in line with previous Call of Duty titles (Infinite Warfare was released on 4 November 2016, and Black Ops 3 was released on 6 November 2015).

The game is now available for pre-order with exclusive access to the Public beta when it goes live.

The game is planned for a November 3 launch, and it's coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Meanwhile, Activision hints at some parts of the game dating back to early 1040s while the details seem very scarce at the moment.

Players will follow the U.S. 1st Infantry Division "as they fight their way through the European theatre of the war", reports GameSpot, with missions including "the D-Day invasion of Normandy and Battle of the Bulge". Sledgehammer Games is instead focusing on a more realistic, boots-on-the-ground gameplay - except, of course, for the Zombie-driven co-op story mode.

We remind you that the sci-fi "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" game that has been released a year ago has not been as successful as the previous Call of Duty titles.

If it's an iconic World War II event, then we'll probably play through it here. Keen? Let us know in the comments. Call of Duty: WWII is not only about "an American war" and the single-player campaign reflects on this aspect by showing the struggles of both sides.
