Call of Duty Calls

Activision Introduces Call of Duty, A New Brand of First Person Action Games is the press release with the official announcement of plans for the Quake III-engine World War II action game that's already been unofficially unveiled (story). There is also a preview of the game on GameSpy.com with the first screenshot that's been released. Here's a bit from the announcement on this on the cross-platform game, planned as the first in a series:

The first title in the Call of Duty series is a gritty, authentic World War II action game for the PC that is being developed by Infinity Ward, a newly formed studio that includes 22 of the individuals who previously developed Medal of Honor: Allied Assault(TM). Players assume the role of different characters from multiple sides of the Allied forces and experience the bonding and brutality of war as they fight along side their squad mates through a variety of missions, including battlefield assaults, search and rescue, stealth, sabotage, vehicle chases and tank battles. Heeding the call of duty, gamers step into the boots of a U.S. paratrooper, a British commando and a Russian infantryman as they take on the Nazi War machine through pivotal World War II battles and authentic military campaigns. The title is slated for release later this year and has not yet been rated by the ESRB.

Call of Duty, sounds like a FPS police action game.

Enough already with these WWII themed games! or do something different. Like one where you star as the bad guys instead.
