No one said that war was pretty. And that’s perhaps never been more so than in World War II. Sledgehammer Games is looking to capture that feel within Call of Duty: WWII, and it looks like they’re doing a damn fine job.
“Get Your Head Down and Keep Moving!”
The trailer appears to begin with the siege of Normandy. It’s just as ugly as you would imagine it would be. Which is fitting because Activision is describing the game as “a gritty, personal experience.” However if the game continues on for hours with the experience that is delivered in this trailer, I don’t think that “gritty” begins to cover it. Here’s the official breakdown:
“Over two years in the making, Sledgehammer Games delivers a gritty, personal experience in the setting of the largest worldwide conflict in history to a new gaming generation in Call of Duty: WWII. Play through the story of ordinary men turned soldiers in the 1st Infantry Division as they fight to preserve freedom in the face of tyranny. Call of Duty: WWII delivers fast-paced, boots-on-ground combat through iconic locations in the European Theater.”
Call of Duty: WWII releases on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 3rd. Watch the trailer below if you have the stomach for it.
