Call of Duty: WW2 – trailer, gameplay, N**i Zombies, beta, multiplayer, collector’s editions, and everything you need to know

The official revelation of Call of Duty: WW2 came to reconcile fans with Activision, which claims to have rid itself of all the negativity that hung around the Call of Duty series. It was the unwanted effect of the futuristic unwanted Infinite Warfare, without forgetting the “wall” placed in the access to Modern Warfare Remastered. However, Call of Duty 2017 is the right game at the right time, especially as it represents a return to the origins in this popular first-person action game series.

On this page you will find all the information that has been revealed so far and the article will continue to be updated until the game’s release.

Call of Duty: WW2 trailer – Official reveal trailer

Call of Duty: WW2 was revealed in April, and was entitled to a promising trailer.

What does the trailer tell us? Well, in addition to pointing to the return to the origins of the series, it takes place in World War II, the trailer for Call of Duty: WW2 gives you some extra details about how the campaign is going to go, something we’ll talk about later, and an overview of the tone chosen for the events.

Yes, if you thought about the TV series “Bando de Irmãos” then we think about it! Inspirational speeches, N**i punches and epic battles. That seems to be the tone of the new game.

In addition, Activision also revealed several videos, which you can see on this page.

Call of Duty: WW2 – Zombies and multiplayer

For now, there are not many details about the Zombies mode of Call of Duty: WW2, where you will face fearsome N**i zombies. However, there is some information that gives us an idea of ​​what to expect when Call of Duty: WW2 hits stores.

N**i Zombies

It seems that this time we don’t just have Zombies, we will have the return of the infamous N**i Zombies, something confirmed by the first promotional image, revealed during the game’s presentation event.

What do we have here? Well, we see a Zombie, from World War II. In addition, Sledgehammer Games, responsible for this year’s Call of Duty, has confirmed that this cooperative mode will offer a unique story. “Our cooperative mode offers a unique story that represents a new approach to N**i Zombies and we believe fans will love it,” said Michael Condrey.

Two things to keep in mind: we know that it will remain as a cooperative mode, as always; and we know it’s a ‘new approach’ to N**i Zombies.

Sledgehammer Games also confirmed that the N**i Zombies return in a story that takes place in World War II. The original mode that started all this furor in Call of Duty: World at War may be the closest reference we have.

Multiplayer

Let’s get straight to the point: the Call of Duty: WW2 multiplayer is based on the motto “troops on the ground”.

  • Headquarters – Described as a ‘robust social space’, the Headquarters area appears to be a social area in the style of what we have in Destiny, where you can demonstrate your Prestige levels and prizes.
  • Divisions – According to Activision, the Division “inserts the player into the Infantry and Armored Divisions. At the moment it is still unclear what that is – despite the Armory Division suggesting that vehicles will play an important role.
  • Was fashion – Another new mode, this seems to derive from Battlefield 1 Operations; engaging, large-scale battles that recreate real war conflicts. The gameplay will be focused on the team and divided between Axis and Allies, based on strategic objectives.

As for the gameplay itself, Sledgehammer Games has yet to mention anything about specific mechanics but everything suggests that the heels and special suits will not be present. The watchword seems to be historical authenticity.

Call of Duty: WW2 will inevitably insert traditional features and mechanics into the series – it would be unthinkable not to have Killstreaks, for example, and certainly the gameplay will still be dynamic and frantic. Probably without the lasers …

Probably online matches will allow a maximum of 18 players, while the new social area will be able to accommodate many more players in your space.

Another information present in this brief look at the game is the maximum rank, 55. Probably the number needed to reach Prestige and start a new scale of success.

Campaign Details

Returning to the campaign, most of the conversation so far has focused on the tone.

As promised, Call of Duty: WW2 will be violent and realistic, but at the same time it will be a new “blockbuster” tale. Much of the tone so far shouts through every pore “Bando de Irmãos”, mixed with a little bit of the movie “Saving Private Ryan” and extra encouragement with “Oorah”.

Sledgehammer Games describes its development as an “inspirational journey”, and much of the conversation during the revelation event focused on the importance of this game for the team, especially the intention to get it right in every detail.

However, Call of Duty: WW2 will not address the whole of World War II.

The campaign’s first mission will be a new D-Day retelling, the invasion of Normandy beaches. After that, it will be a journey especially centered on a specific group of North American military forces, despite hearing a British officer during the trailer. It serves as an important liaison for the North American group and there are occasional matches to deal with other stories of the war.

The story of Call of Duty WWII takes place between 1944 and 1945, during the height of the war, and begins in Normandy. We will follow the same squad during the liberation of Paris, passing through Belgium, Germany, the Battle of the Ardennes and other moments that marked the confrontation.

On the other hand, the duration of the story mode is always one of the most pertinent questions that consumers ask before buying a video game, and although Call of Duty WWII has more to offer than the campaign, they are certainly curious to know how long this will be. mode.

We already have the answer to your question. In an interview at Gamescom 2017 with Michael Condrey, co-founder and responsible for production at Sledgehammer Games, we learned that the Call of Duty WWII campaign will last anywhere between 5 to 8 hours, depending on your way of playing.

Michael Condrey said that longevity is standard for the Call of Duty series and that they are “focused on telling a rich narrative of the squad and its journey”. Of course, in addition to the campaign, there is online multiplayer and Zombies.
