Call of Duty: WWII takes the franchise back to its roots. The original Call of Duty (2003) focused on combat during World War II. The Call of Duty series has since become a multiplayer mainstay with the campaign mission taking a backseat, and the settings have gone past, present day and all the way into the future. The most recent installment, Infinite Warfare, took players all throughout the solar system, but now we’re going back to a gritty and grounded aesthetic of WWII with Call of Duty: WWII.
The reveal trailer for the game is impressive, and it looks like Josh Duhamel plays a key role in the campaign. Take a look at the Call of Duty: WWII trailer below, and tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
The game will be available for purchase on November 3rd. Just in time for Veteran’s Day on November 11th.

Call of Duty: WWII focuses on the actions of a squad from 1944 to 1945, but will also touch on events from 1940 to 1944 to help set the stage for the narrative and establish the characters. It takes place in the European theater of conflict, at a time when the Allied forces were finally starting to gather strength on their march into Germany. You and your squad will fight your way through occupied France, Belgium, and across the Rhine into Germany.
