Activision's new Call of Duty brings players back to its WWII roots

Video game publisher Activision recently launched its reveal trailer for its new Call of Duty (COD) title, Call of Duty: WWII.

Developed in cooperation with video game developer, Sledgehammer Games (the company that worked on 2014's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare)The new COD titles marks the return of the franchise to the bloody fields of World War II in the European theater, almost 14 years since the first COD title launched. As you can see in the trailer that we've provided, the reveal trailer puts you into the shoes of a yet-to-be-named soldier who comes from Texas.

The game seems to have been developed with the same game engine used in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, but more importantly, it's very evident that the game has taken on a darker and grittier tone, much like the more recent COD titles, such as the Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare franchises. Like the previous COD titles,  Activision has casted a famous actor to play a support role in-game, and this time, it's Josh Duhamel (of Transformers fame).

The reveal trailer falls short from revealing the plot of the game, so we can't really say for sure if Activision and Sledgehammer Games are going to stick to an objective-driven war story, or if they intend to throw in a more complex and mysterious plot for its fans. That having been said, it's very likely that the plot will be revealed between now and the game's release date of November 3, 2017.
