CALL OF DUTY: WW2
Arguably one of the biggest games to launch last month, Call of Duty: WW2, took players back to the events of the Second World War once again since the release of Call of Duty: World at World back in 2008.
Multiplayer is always a huge focus in COD games, and in WW2 you can engage in multiplayer matches where you fight the enemy as either the Allies or Axis forces. WW2 also features Divisions wherein players can choose between five categories of training to gain specific skills to use in combat. The Divisions include:
- Infantry: focusing in long-range combat and devastating melee abilities.
- Armored: machine gun and heavy firepower emphasis.
- Expeditionary: Able to use shotguns with incendiary rounds.
- Airborne: Major focus on stealth gameplay, able to move faster and stay quiet and can attach suppressors to sub-machines.
- Mountain: Able to have aim assist with sniper rifles and improved aim through scope.
There is also a new game mode called War where two teams of six perform narrative missions as the Allies or Axis troops and fight in iconic WW2 battles like storming the beach on D-Day in Normandy. As well a new Headquarters area is also available where up to 48 players can gather on Omaha Beach in Normandy to watch each other open loot boxes, engage in 1v1 fights, or practice using weapons in a shooting range.
Nazi Zombies makes a welcome return as well, maintaining the classic wave-based format with a whole new original storyline separate from the events of the main campaign. There is both a casual and hardcore path for alternate endings, with up to two players able to play in local co-op or a team of four with online play.
COD: WW2 released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on Nov. 3.
