The Call of Duty: WWII box art has been revealed by Amazon UK, and in addition to that, they’ve given Playstation owners a reason to buy the game; all of the game’s DLC will be timed exclusives for PlayStation owners, being available 30 days before the Xbox and PC gamers.
Call of Duty: WWII is going to be a return to Call of Duty’s origins, taking place in World War 2 rather than sometime in the future like the games have been doing since 2008. With Black Ops all wrapped up and with Sledgehammer working on this instead of a sequel to Advanced Warfare, some fans may think it’s long overdue.
Many fans have been clamoring for a return to World War 2 after Black Ops 3 and games like Infinite Warfare, the latter of which got extremely negative fan reactions when it was released. Infinite Warfare’s efforts to go so far in the future we’re colonizing the rest of the solar system hasn’t gone over well, but now it seems Sledgehammer’s ready to turn it around.
We’re supposed to be expecting a worldwide reveal for Call of Duty: WWII next Wednesday, which will likely tell us how the game will look, and if there’s any story to it besides a Band of Brothers-style “go through the war” perspective.
Either way, considering it’s been almost a decade since we’ve gotten a World War 2 Call of Duty game, gamers who are nostalgic for the old days may welcome Call of Duty’s return to one of the most destructive wars in human history.
In a manner of speaking, at least. Either way, we can likely expect a release date to be revealed at next week’s show, and probably some gameplay footage at this year’s E3, whether on the Playstation conference or the Microsoft one. So, be on the lookout.
