Belgium. The Soviet Union. Germany. Call of Duty: WWII is aiming to portray the theatre of war that was World War II, and its latest gameplay trailer accomplishes just that by showing us the myriad battlefields we'll traverse through all the carnage with devastated cities, muddy trenches, and snowy forests. While this seems a minor detail to point out, the title is doubling down on the horrors of combat by returning gore to the series, which hasn't been seen since Call of Duty: World at War. Sniper rifles, shotguns, hefty machine guns, and flamethrowers are all here to equip, and you'l notice that, like Battlefield 1, trench shovels and bayonet charges will be part of the gameplay as well.
That signature Call of Duty formula is still intact with this demonstration, but it certainly is a massive leap from titles as complex as Black Ops III. Are you going to parachute into WW2 or sit out of this fight? Grab your flamethrowers and heat up the comments section to let us know.
