Now let’s go back to the beginning and see everything Activision has announced about the game so far.
Call of Duty: WWII announced
Activision hinted at the WWII setting back in February, when it suggested this year’s installment would bring the franchise “back to its roots.” That turned out to be the case when the company formally announced Call of Duty: WW2 in April 2017.
A few days later (after a leak) we got a heap of information about the game, including its release date, details about the story, and news about the beta. If you want in on the beta, by the way, you’re going to have to preorder the game.
Speaking with the developers
Also in April, we got a chance to interview a number of people working on Call of Duty: WW2. They spoke about wanting to bring the series back to earth and root it in reality. They also spilled tons of details about the campaign, so be sure to check those out.
For those who prefer sticking to the multiplayer side of things, we have you covered right here, along with details about the Nazi zombie mode.
