Activision had previously made the announcement that this year’s iteration of Call of Duty would be going back to World War II. And now we are getting a stream of new information on the upcoming title including a reveal trailer, a release date, a playable female character (within the campaign), and some crazy news about the removal of passive health and ammo regeneration.
Developed by Sledgehammer games (the team who made Advanced Warfare), Call of Duty: WWII will be releasing on November 3rd. Check out the reveal trailer below.
Perhaps even more interesting is some of the details originally unveiled by GameInformer. They have revealed that the game won’t have any passive health or ammo regeneration. This is a pretty significant change, particularly on the health side of things.
“Players do not recover health or ammo passively. You cannot simply get hit, hide behind some cover, and heal up. You need to call upon your squadmates to get health packs, ammunition, or even covering fire. This makes getting hit carry a significantly more weight than other Call of Duty titles, as taking a bullet has consequences every time.”
The game will have you play primarily as Private Daniels, an inexperienced member of the US 1st Infantry Division as he fights his way through the European theatre of war. However there are also moments within the game that move you into the perspective of other individuals, including a female member of the French resistance.
Call of Duty: WWII will also have a beta prior to launch, but details of when aren’t currently available. The game is up for pre-order currently on the COD WWII website. I’ll see you guys on the battlefield when it releases November 3 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
