Call of Duty: WWII In November

The promised reveal of Call of Duty: WWII on the Call of Duty website revealed a November 3rd release date for Sledgehammer's upcoming installment in the first-person shooter series. They offered a new trailer (NSFW) to show off the franchise's return to the World War II roots (and Nazi zombies!). The Activision blog has more, saying preorder customers will get access to the private beta, noting the beta will come to the PlayStation 4 before Windows or Xbox One. They offer screenshots along with details, saying that a full multiplayer reveal will come at E3 in June. Here's word:
Today, Activision and Sledgehammer Games provided the first glimpse of the title that’s taking Call of Duty back to its roots - Call of Duty: WWII. We’re talking boots- on- the- ground gameplay delivering a visceral and immersive gameplay experience unlike anything we’ve seen before.

In addition to watching the worldwide reveal stream today, we also met with Sledgehammer Games Co-Founders and Studio Heads, Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield for added insights on what’s to come in the new game. They explained to us that Call of Duty: WWII is a very personal journey for the team, as they have been hard at work on this project for the last two and a half years. “This is based on one of the most monumental moments in human history, and we get to honor and respect that global sacrifice, to honor the men and women who fought for freedom on all fronts, on a global scale,” said Condrey.

Schofield added that the team named the main character after his father, who passed away during production. “The story Call of Duty: WWII follows a global and diverse cast, but for me it honors my father Ronald “Red” Daniels and his squad, and not just what they went through from a global perspective, but what they went through personally. We like to tell a story within a story, and this is no different.”
Both Condrey and Schofield underscored the fact that Call of Duty: WWII is about a squad’s remarkable journey of personal growth and heroism across Europe in World War II, and is a story about common men and women doing uncommon things to preserve freedom.

Welcome to the Fighting First
No mission too difficult. No sacrifice too great. Duty first!

Call of Duty: WWII focuses on the actions of a squad from 1944 to 1945, but will also touch on events from 1940 to 1944 to help set the stage for the narrative and establish the characters. It takes place in the European theater of conflict, at a time when the Allied forces were finally starting to gather strength on their march into Germany. You and your squad will fight your way through occupied France, Belgium, and across the Rhine into Germany.

The Front Lines and Beyond
Highlighting the diverse ensemble cast, players will also encounter the French resistance movement, featuring strong and vibrant characters who were fighting for their homeland even after all seemed lost. The game takes players from the beaches of Normandy to the liberation of Paris and beyond, across a variety of heart-racing engagements and epic battles.

To complement today’s gameplay reveal trailer and touch on more of the action that is coming in Call of Duty: WWII, here’s a few insights on two of the missions from the Campaign:

  • Hürtgen Forest: An old-growth forest on the German border where Allied forces engage in devastating encounters. In the heat of battle, the German Army uses tree burst bombs that detonate at treetop level, showering soldiers with wooden shrapnel. When your unit is zeroed-in-on by hostile artillery, the forest explodes around you as debris rains down.
  • Normandy: From inside a Higgins landing boat, your squad will storm Omaha Beach in a visceral audiovisual experience unlike any D-Day landing experienced in a game to date. You and your fellow soldiers must overcome the enemy defenses to serve as the tip of the spear for the Allied invasion.

Multiplayer
There will be a Multiplayer reveal for Call of Duty: WWII at E3, which will take place in Los Angeles from June 13-15. You won’t want to miss it.

Multiplayer elements coming to Call of Duty: WWII include:

  • War: This narrative-driven mode brings a gripping new layer of excitement to Axis vs. Allies team play.
  • Divisions: A new approach to Create-a-Class and character customization as you enlist in a division and progress through the ranks.
  • Headquarters: A brand-new, social feature for Call of Duty, where you rally and interact with your fellow soldiers.

Call of Duty: WWII will be released on November 3, 2017. Pre-orders at participating retailers include access to the Private Beta, available first on the PlayStation4, scheduled for later this year.

More like 'saw what was happening' and then joined the plot to kill Hitler. A lot of Germans that hated Nazism in the army or otherwise also ended up in concentration camps or simply hung if they were found out.

That's besides the point though, if we think of CoD as purely 'war' stories, here are 5-6+ ideas just off the top of my head:

- American 'Not another Normandy story': An entire Tunisian, Sicilian, and Gothic Line (Italy) Campaign
- British: Entire Burma Campaign, The Invasion of France and Dunkirk, etc.
- German: Literally any front, no FPS-type game from this perspective (only thing I can think of terms of 'story' are RTS games). Examples of stories centered around any of these: Escaping the Korsun Pocket, Early War-through Late War (successes to late war defeat), Operation Bagration (think something like 'Crosses of Iron), a German Fallshirmjager
- Japan: Easy, holdouts such as the Fox of Saipan and others, or a Philippines campaign
- Polish: Early War invasion of Poland, survive and become a Partisan eventually linking up with Russians in late war (OR escaping Poland and joining the "Polish Armed Forces" which included anyone from deserted German Wehrmacht, Russian Evacuees, Polish Evacuees, Evacuees from France)
- Finnish: Easy, the Winter War (and Continuation War).
- Russian: Surviving Operation Barbarossa and end at a major battle such as Budapest or Berlin. Other ideas would be Early War and are pushed back to Sevastopol and surrounded, captured, and escaping to become a Partisan.

And that's not even covering a quarter of possibilities. Plenty of nationalities for a character: Hungarian, French, Vichy French, Scottish, Romanian, Italian, etc. + any number of conflict areas.
