Activision have announced that Call of Duty WWII is out now around the world, letting players put boots to the ground, once more in the war to end all wars. Featuring a single player campaign, a zombie mode and multiplayer, the game has a lot for players to enjoy.
The Call of Duty WWII story campaign immerses players into an intense journey filled with gripping action and epic battles. Players follow the story of Ronald “Red” Daniels, a member of the US 1st Infantry Division, who joins British forces and the French Resistance, and battle across the beaches of Normandy, to the liberation of Paris and ultimately into Germany.
“Call of Duty: WWII is the right game at the right time for our fans. Returning the franchise to its gritty, boots on the ground, military roots was a big opportunity and a big responsibility. We were determined to deliver an unforgettable World War II experience, and I think we have,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. “Our teams at Sledgehammer and Raven not only captured the epic scale and authentic atmosphere of the most brutal war ever fought, they also brought a hell of a lot of innovations—from a whole new way to play multiplayer with War Mode, to a new social space with Headquarters, to a jump-out-of-your-chair-scary Nazi Zombies mode. Whether you’re a long-time player, or totally new to the franchise, this is the game that will bring all of our fans together.”
“Call of Duty: WWII has been incredibly personal for us, with members of the Sledgehammer Games team and cast directly connected to World War II veterans. From the start, we committed ourselves to recreating the setting and locations, as well as years of research to make sure we captured the spirit and tone that players will experience,” said Glen Schofield, Co-Founder and Studio Head of Sledgehammer Games.
“Being a part of taking Call of Duty fans back to World War II has been an unforgettable privilege for all of us” added Michael Condrey, Co-Founder and Studio Head of Sledgehammer Games. “The stories of sacrifice, comradery, and selflessness demonstrated by the men and women of The Greatest Generation inspired each of us to do the very best work of our careers. We kept these humble heroes at the forefront of developing the game and we proudly share it with the Call of Duty community in their honor.”
