Sledgehammer Games and Activision released a new trailer for Call of Duty: WWII alongside a host of additional details early this morning.
“Call of Duty: WWII takes the franchise back to its roots in a bold cinematic experience that captures the unforgettable heroism of the soldiers who fought together in a war that changed the world forever. Activision’s gripping new title is an honest portrayal of World War II from the perspective of the famed 1st Infantry Division, with an ensemble cast of global and diverse characters,” Activision said of the title. “Through stunning visuals and intense audio, players storm the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, march across France to liberate Paris and ultimately push forward into Germany in some of the most monumental battles of all-time.”
You’re able to watch the game’s reveal trailer below:
The livestream event this morning confirmed (and reinforced) a bunch. First, there won’t be a Switch version of the game — WWII heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 3 November.
Three versions of the game will be available, with a private beta offered to anyone that pre-orders any edition. The editions are as follows:
- Base Edition and Digital Base Edition
- Digital Deluxe Edition – Season Pass and more
- Pro Edition – Season Pass, collectible Steelbook and more
“Call of Duty: WWII has been a journey of inspiration and passion for everyone at Sledgehammer Games,” said the studio’s Michael Condrey. “The team is dedicated to delivering on the intense nature of war that focuses on the heroism and sacrifice of soldiers in WWII. Our rich narrative driven, action-packed campaign, and engaging and innovative multiplayer experience immerse players into the boots of a soldier fighting for freedom in a world on the brink of tyranny. And, our co-operative mode delivers a unique storyline that’s an all-new take on Nazi Zombies that we think fans are going to love.”
Yep. Nazi Zombies.

“Multiplayer also delivers a new approach to character and create-a-class through Divisions, War, an all-new narrative multiplayer mode of play, and Headquarters, a first of its kind for the Call of Duty social community, designed for players to interact and socialize with friends,” Activision continued. “The definitive World War II next generation experience also introduces Nazi Zombies, an all-new cooperative mode featuring a unique standalone storyline set during World War II that’s full of unexpected, adrenaline-pumping action.”
We’ll find out more on Zombies, and multiplayer in general, in June.
