To be honest, it's been getting harder for us to write about Call of Duty over the last few years. The best (and most popular) military first-person shooter game had mutated into a progressively weirder sci-fi experience. It may have said "Call of Duty" on the box, but Call of Duty: Infinite War had almost zero to do everything that made the games popular in the first place.
Cue Call of Duty: WWII.
The suits at Activision must have seen this coming, because they've had Sledgehammer Games (previous credits: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare) working on Call of Duty: WWII behind the scenes for several years: whatever games we're getting for 2018, 2019 and probably 2020 are already well into development.
Sure, the game is yet another one based on the Operation Overlord D-Day invasion of 1944. There are dozens of movies about June 6th, 1944 for a reason. It's one of the greatest military operations in history and people like an unvarnished victory with clearly defined good guys and bad guys.
The single-player version casts you as a private who's seeing his first combat in the Battle of Normandy and follows the war across the European Theater. As expected, the will be a Nazi zombie co-op campaign. The multiplayer will offer an Axis vs. Allies mode. Call of Duty: WWII is due in stores on November 3 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
