The Call of Duty WWII release date is slowly but surely approaching and the developer Sledgehammer keeps providing more and more intricate details. To fuel players’ excitement and nurture their expectations for evil Nazis, gunfire, and horror explosions Activision and Sledgehammer have unleashed a new story trailer that casts light on the plot players will encounter once the game is launched.
The trailer introduces the story of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels – a young recruit in the U.S First Infantry Division. After surviving the D-Day, he and his squad of soldiers decide to continue to do battle across Europe while making their way into Germany,
In line with all expectations, the Sledgehammer Games is keeping its promise to make the Call of Duty: WWII as historically accurate as possible. What’s more, studio representatives have previously confirmed that the campaign will include military offensives such as Operation Cobra. The latter is known as the largest aerial bombardment that occurred during the WW2.
It seems Activision and Sledgehammer did their best to make the game equally appealing to historians and fans of first-person shooters who do not have in-depth history expertise. Players will be able to enjoy a number of different modes and features. The Nazi Zombies mode is expected to attract a great deal of interest.
A few months ago, Sledgehammer’s co-founder Michael Condrey said that the Call of Duty: WWII will not provide players with the opportunity to view the war from the German perspective. In reality, the CoD is among the few titles that put such a strong emphasis on the fact that the Nazis are the villains.
Call of Duty WWII will be out on November 3rd. The multiplayer beta will be available on PC on September 29th. It ends on October 3. No preorder required.

Unfortunately, the Call of Duty WW2 open beta is not coming to PS4 and Xbox One.
What’s Next? New Modern Warfare or Black Ops 4?
The Call of Duty: WW2 is undoubtedly one of the most notable game releases of the year. However, fans seem impatient to know what the next blockbuster title would be and keep hunting clues.
That’s totally understandable, especially when the publisher occasionally teases about future projects. The Game Informer has recently asked the Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg whether Activision was planning to make more WWII-inspired games or it will focus on other time periods. Although Mr Hirshberg did not give a precise answer, he said that the CoD: WWII might be the first in a new era of historical Call of Duty games.
A few weeks ago, eagle-eyed fans have also discovered a job ad at the game maker Treyarch. The requirements listed in the advert hint at the possibility of a return to the Modern Warfare.
Although the job postings at Treyarch do not directly claim anything, some fans started second-guessing if they would get a Black Ops 4 in 2018. For the time being, both suggestions remain far-fetched speculations and it is just a matter of time until Activision confirms or denies the rumors.
