Boots on the ground gameplay is back for this year’s Call of Duty. That’s right, no more flying around on jetpacks and overpowered laser guns. The worldwide reveal showed the trailer which revealed what the campaign mode will entail. A squad in the thick of World War II during 1944-1945. You and your squad will battle your way through occupied France, Belgium, and across the Rhine into Germany. Call of Duty also went into detail about two of the missions in 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.”
Don’t worry if you are wondering about the multiplayer mode that Call of Duty is famous for. The trailer for that will be released at one of, if not the biggest gaming event on the globe, E3. It will be in Los Angeles from 13th – 15th June and the event will be live-streamed so you don’t have to miss a thing. There are new elements that will be brought to multiplayer that Call of Duty went into detail about.
“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 customisation 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 also tweeted a teaser image confirming that the Zombies mode is back.
