The trailer above shows off an expectedly by-the-numbers, melodramatic WWII campaign that at least benefits from the last 10 years of graphical improvement.
Call of Duty: WW II will also offer a co-op campaign that is reportedly separate from the single-player story.
Multiplayer will follow the same European Theater focus between 1944 and 1945, and will likely take place in numerous same regions as the singleplayer campaign.
Another feature indicated by the leak is the co-operative mode, which opens the doors to a brand new story that is filled with "unexpected, adrenaline-pumping moments", according to the description. You'll want to sit down for this: It looks like a Call of Duty game set in World War II.
During the Call of Duty reveal stream, we learned that Call of Duty: WWII will again take us to Europe.

Of course, Call of Duty World War 2 will not be a mindless shoot 'em up game, but one that makes the players experience all the horror of participating in a conflagration that set the whole world on fire.
Of course, this wouldn't be a Call of Duty announcement without controversy and it seems this time, it has to do with diversity. Throughout the game's reveal livestream, the phrase "boots on the ground" was said so much that it barely even means anything to me anymore.
The developers behind the "Call of Duty" franchise are going back to their roots with "Call of Duty: WWII" - not only to 1944, but to 2003.
Headquarters is a "robust social space", in which players will be able to rally and interact with other players.
Details on the multiplayer are rather slim at this early stage, but Activision did reveal that there will be a close multiplayer beta later on in the year.
