While Call of Duty: WW2‘s PC beta is slated to start in a little more than a week to give fans on personal computers a taste of some of the forthcoming first-person shooter’s multiplayer content, there are surely a plethora of players still looking forward to learning even more about the title’s single-player campaign. As it so happens, Activision and Sledgehammer Games have now unleashed a brand new story trailer that details the overview of the plot that fans will encounter once the game comes out in November.
As seen below in the latest Call of Duty: WW2 trailer, fans are introduced to the story of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, a young recruit in the U.S. First Infantry Division whose first combat experience was on D-Day during the storming of the beaches of Normandy. After surviving what was one of the largest amphibious assaults in global history, Red and his squad of soldiers are determined to continue to do battle across Europe and engage the enemy in a variety of different iconic locations such as Hürtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge, as they make their way into Germany.
Taking into consideration the above trailer for Call of Duty: WW2, it looks as if Sledgehammer Games intends on delivering quite an in-depth fictional tale, while also maintaining a high level of historical accuracy in order to depict World War II as correctly as a video game can. As it so happens, the studio’s Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey even promised a while back that the campaign will include such military offensives as Operation Cobra, which is the largest aerial bombardment that took place during the war.
While only time will tell as to whether or not Call of Duty: WW2‘s story campaign will sit well with historians and gaming fans alike for its depiction of World War II, Activision and Sledgehammer Games will also offer up a fair share of different features and modes in order to keep players engaged beyond the plot. For instance, not only will the aforementioned multiplayer deliver its own brand of gameplay combat, but also the title’s Nazi Zombies mode should scare up a good deal of interest among the franchise’s fan base.
