Call of Duty: WWII is an upcoming first-person shooter video game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. It is the fourteenth primary installment and first Call of Duty series game to be set primarily during World War II since Call of Duty: World at War in 2008. The game is set in European theatre of the war. The campaign is centered around a squad in the 1st Infantry Division, and follows their battles in the Western Front, while the multiplayer expands on different fronts not seen in the campaign. Zombies mode is also coming back which I am excited for. It had been announced on April 21, 2017, with a reveal trailer released 5 days later, and is scheduled to be released on November 3, 2017.

The Nazi Zombies story of WWII takes place in an alternate history, where the Nazis have conducted research on the legend of King Frederick Barbarossa‘s hidden treasure. The story is centered around Marie Fischer, a young German engineer working with the Office of Strategic Services. Marie’s brother, Klaus, has taken part in the research of Barbarossa’s treasure, working with Doctor Peter Straub. Marie is joined by three companions: ex-art thief Drostan Hynd, ex-art historian and fighter Olivia Durant, and military sergeant Jefferson Potts, as they attempt to conduct a covert operation to learn of the Nazis’ plans, retrieve the stolen artifacts and rescue Klaus in the process.

The multiplayer mode for Call of Duty: WWII was revealed on E3 2017, which took place from June 13–15. Sledgehammer Games has announced new features such as the new headquarters social space, divisions, war mode and the return to “boots-on-the-ground” gameplay. Players who pre-order the game were invited to a closed beta, which was released initially for the PlayStation 4, but later was released on other platforms.
