The Reveal Is Here With Lots Of Detail’s
So finally Call Of Duty: WWII has been revealed and with it came a lot more details than we were expecting. To start of with normally on the first reveal we usually only find out about the campaign behind the game and what the story is all about. Surprisingly though we were treated to a few teases for multiplayer and even a zombies image that we will get on to later.
It has been confirmed that if you pre-order the the game you will get access to the early private beta set to start later this year. If you pre-order at and retailer you will be given a beta code to redeem or if you by it digitally you will automatically be granted access to the beta.
The beta will be available first on PlayStation 4 and with Xbox One beta to follow afterwards. No set date has been given yet for the beta but the past two years has been Auguat for Black Ops 3 and October for Infinite Warfare.
We were given some great details about the campaign portion for WWII. You will play as the character Ronald ‘Red’ Daniels who is a young 19 year old from Texas who is just your regular kid who has been given and rifle to fight along side his companions in Europe. You will start your fight as you land on the beaches and as you work your way through Europe fighting to survive. Be prepared though as it has already been confirmed that there will be some historical location and battles that you will have to fight in.
Some more details that have been provided is that there is not just one campaign mission but in fact two for you to fight through. They are,
- Hürtgen Forest: An old-growth forest on the German border where Allied forces engage in devastating encounters. In the heat of battle, the German Army uses tree burst bombs that detonate at treetop level, showering soldiers with wooden shrapnel. When your unit is zeroed-in-on by hostile artillery, the forest explodes around you as debris rains down.
- Normandy: From inside a Higgins landing boat, your squad will storm Omaha Beach in a visceral audiovisual experience unlike any D-Day landing experienced in a game to date. You and your fellow soldiers must overcome the enemy defenses to serve as the tip of the spear for the Allied invasion.
Another big detail that was provided as well for campaign is that it will not feature auto-regeneration of health or auto-refill of your ammunition. If your health is getting low you can not simply just hide until it comes back but instead you will have to ask for a medic in game who will come and heal you. As for ammunition then you will not be able to just simply pick it up off the floor but instead if you run low you will need to ask a squad mate to throw you a new magazine instead. You will have to work together as a squad as there will be assigned abilities as in medic and if one of your squad dies then you run the risk of being without anymore ammunition or a medic. Take care of each other as you will not only lose abilities but also a squad mate dying will have an emotional impact on you as well.
Not much was given away about the multiplayer portion of WWII but we have been promised that it will be revealed at E3 in June 13-15 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
There was how ever four guns that were confirmed in the reveal that will be coming to multiplayer and they were the steady stable M1 Grand, The chain saw of belt feed machine guns the MG42, deadly accurate bolt action sniper rifle the M1903 and the trench clearer the Grease Gun.
We were though told about a new feature coming to the multiplayer section of the game and that is called Head Quarters that is a social space for players to interact. You will be able to showcase your achievements and it is suspected that up to 48 players can be in a head quarters at once but it is unclear as to the size of the game lobbies though as that would be a huge jump up to 48 players on one map. They would not go into anymore specifics today and will more than likely tell us all the details at E3.
When asked about zombies in WWII nothing was really said to begin with and they showed us the image of a nazi zombie letting us know they are coming back but more details will not be released until a later date. Here are all the details we have so far from Activision,
The definitive World War II next generation experience also introduces Nazi Zombies, an all-new cooperative mode featuring a unique standalone storyline set during World War II that’s full of unexpected, adrenaline-pumping action.
All in all it is looking to be an amazing game and that is before we even have all the details about all the game modes. You just have to head on over to YouTube and look at the like/dislike ration on the reveal video to judge how well this game is being received.
