Call of Duty takes us back to where the series roots originally took shape in historic warfare with Call of Duty: WWII, taking place during the heart of World War II with an epic campaign, new multiplayer modes, and challenging co-op features that look to have us playing this thrilling game well into the new year.
One of the most exciting things we’re looking forward to in Call of Duty: WWII is the new multiplayer mode, War Mode, that gives a cinematic feel to its online battles, echoing the epic firefights we’d see in films like “A Bridge Too Far” or “Saving Private Ryan,” all wrapped into the frantic competitive multiplayer experience of playing online against other players. With objectives like escorting a tank through the narrow alleyways of a French village, to building a bridge while under heavy fire, War Mode looks to lend to a new level of strategy in Call of Duty multiplayer.
In addition to multiplayer modes, it can’t be a Call of Duty game without an epic single-player, story-driven campaign. From landing on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, to battling across the rest of Europe, we’re looking forward to experiencing the bonds of comradery against the backdrop of the unforgiving nature of war.
Call of Duty: WWII is available on Xbox One in a variety of editions starting today. There’s the standard edition available for $59.99 USD and the Call of Duty: WWII – Digital Deluxe Edition for $99.99 USD that includes the Season Pass, providing additional content updates to the game throughout 2018.
