The Reveal Trailer For ‘Call Of Duty: World War II’ Is Here And — HELL YEAH! — There’s A Nazi Zombie Mode!!!!

t was only a matter of time before Activision took it’s incredibly successful Call Of Duty franchise back to its warfare roots. Fans have been complaining about the FPS franchise becoming too futuristic and sci-fi for years. Advanced Warfare, Modern Warfare 3, Black Ops III, and Infinite Warfare had more in common with sci-fi shoot ’em ups a la Halo than actual military games. So, after two years of development from Sledgehammer Games, Call Of Duty is finally going back to being a war game with Call Of Duty: World War II. 

The other day my colleague Paul shared a handful of leaked images of COD: WWII. Now we have the full reveal trailer following an event in London. A few huge takeaways from the press release — 1.) The campaign mode in this game is going to be badass and (2. THERE’S GOING TO BE A NAZI ZOMBIE MODE.

“Call of Duty: WWII has been a journey of inspiration and passion for everyone at Sledgehammer Games. The team is dedicated to delivering on the intense nature of war that focuses on the heroism and sacrifice of soldiers in WWII. Our rich narrative driven, action-packed campaign, and engaging and innovative multiplayer experience immerse players into the boots of a soldier fighting for freedom in a world on the brink of tyranny. And, our co-operative mode delivers a unique storyline that’s an all-new take on Nazi Zombies that we think fans are going to love,” said Michael Condrey, Studio Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games.

Added Glen Schofield, Studio Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games, “the story we’re telling is unlike anything that we’ve tackled before. It’s such an amazing journey of common everyday people who became heroes. We want to respect this great generation of soldiers, tell a realistic story set in a true inflection point in human history, and deliver the best experience of our careers.”

Call of Duty: WWII takes the franchise back to its roots in a bold cinematic experience that captures the unforgettable heroism of the soldiers who fought together in a war that changed the world forever. Activision’s gripping new title is an honest portrayal of World War II from the perspective of the famed 1st Infantry Division, with an ensemble cast of global and diverse characters. Through stunning visuals and intense audio, players storm the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, march across France to liberate Paris and ultimately push forward into Germany in some of the most monumental battles of all-time.

Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer combat immerses players in grounded, fast-paced action featuring an arsenal of authentic weapons and equipment, set in some of the most iconic locations in World War II’s European theater. Multiplayer also delivers a new approach to character and create-a-class through Divisions, War, an all-new narrative multiplayer mode of play, and Headquarters, a first of its kind for the Call of Duty social community, designed for players to interact and socialize with friends. The definitive World War II next generation experience also introduces Nazi Zombies, an all-new cooperative mode featuring a unique standalone storyline set during World War II that’s full of unexpected, adrenaline-pumping action. Look for more information about Multiplayer at E3 and the Nazi Zombies cooperative experience at a later date.

Can’t wait to storm the beach in Normandy and blast some Nazi Zombies. This game is gonna rule.
