Call of Duty: WWII Story Kicks Off With Some of the Most Intense Encounters in History

Call of Duty: WWII story takes us back to the roots of Call of Duty and its intense storyline is the highlight this year. The very first two missions of the game will take us to Hurtgen Forest And Normandy. Both battles lay the foundation of things to come in Call of Duty: WWII story, the things players will experience.

Hurtgen Forest hosted fierce battles fought from 19 September to 16 December 1944 between the American and German forces during the World War 2. The battle of Hurtgen Forest is the longest battle fought on German ground, and longest the American army has ever fought. The main goal was to keep the German forces pinned down in one location to stop them from reinforcing the front line.

Hurtgen 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.

Meanwhile, in the Invasion of Normandy, the western allies launched the largest amphibious invasion in history when they assaulted Normandy.

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.

Call of Duty: WWII reveal trailer also showcased parts of the Normandy Invasion. The footage highlighted the fact that gore and violence are coming back to COD. Call of Duty: WWII story will be available to experience starting November 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
