Call of Duty WWII: What We Currently Know


The Call of Duty franchise never fails to impress with it's immersive storylines and cutting edge gameplay. As of late, the series has taken a turn towards the more futuristic side, causing some long time fans to become disgruntled as its strayed further and further from it's traditional boots on the ground roots.  Judging from recent news, it looks like fans are finally going to get what they want with the upcoming installment Call of Duty WWII.

The release date for the upcoming title along with a few awesome details were released in a live reveal earlier today. If you would like to see the reveal in it's entirety, you can check it out here, but definitely be sure to check out the game trailer posted below. In the meantime, we're going to recap the highlights of what we know, and will do our best to post updates as we learn more.

Release Date and Early Beta Access

Call of Duty WWII will be releasing on November 3rd, 2017 for PS4, XBone and PC. There have been rumors that the game will be revealed for the Nintendo Switch at E3, however there are no confirmed sources for this information.

There will be an early access beta for all who preorder. Judging by an earlier tweet from PlayStation, it also appears as if this access will be available to PS4 users first.

Price

It is anticipated that the normal version of the game will run players at the standard $60 price. There have been leaks showing Gamestop promotional materials regarding a $100 Pro Edition that will come with the game, a steelbook case, season pass and additional bonus content.

Campaign Mode

The single player campaign mode will tell the story of U.S. Army private Ronald "Red" Daniels and his comrades of the U.S. 1st Infantry Division. The game follows the groups journey through WWII's European Theater during 1944-1945. Call of Duty WWII will feature famous locations such as the beaches of Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge and other famous WWII battles.


Multiplayer

It is to be expected that traditional multiplayer modes will be present in this game, along with a new "war mode" featuring a massive battleground where a large group of players can play against one another. Players will also be able to choose a division such as "infantry" or "armored".

During the live reveal, viewers were provided with a very short clip previewing a new social space where players can interact with one another. A video of the player hub preview is available below. Similar hubs have been seen before in games such as Destiny.

Zombies

The only current information regarding zombies for Call of Duty WWII is that players will have to defend themselves against nazi-zombies. When describing the details of this Call of Duty WWII, studio heads actually referred to it as a "horror game". The hyper-realistic screenshot that was given to viewers seems to solidify this description.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap: Old Gem to You, New Gem to Me

I found myself recently craving a new game to play on my Nintendo Switch. I had just finished Super Mario Odyssey (yes I took a long time to finish it, I'm a busy person- don't judge) and I had absolutely nothing new to reach for next! After a brief glance at the eShop sale section I saw Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap on sale for a mere $9.99. I'd heard great things about it from the various video game podcasts that I listen to, but like many reviews that are done with free review copies- I took their opinions with a grain of salt. After a bit of an eternal debate, I took the plunge and never looked back. And wow am I glad that I did! Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap  may be new to me, but it definitely isn't a new game. It originally made it's debut on the Sega Master System in 1989 as Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap . As someone who wasn't even alive at that time, I'd never even heard of the Sega Master System let alone Wonder Boy III . Wond

Monster Hunter World: An Honest Review

Let me start out by saying that until a few years ago Monster Hunter was one of those games that I could watch for hours on streaming sites but it just seemed too complicated to learn myself. I can't count the number of times I download demos on the Nintendo 3DS and gave up because I couldn't kill the easiest monster in the game. Many YouTube videos and hours of reading later I finally felt knowledgeable enough to purchase the full version and dive in. Does this sound like you? If so let me put it simply- this game will welcome you with open arms. Monster Hunter: World is easily the most newbie friendly entry in the series. Are there still a lot of mechanics to learn? Yes. But the system as a whole has been redone in a way that just works. Even my husband, whom I've tried to get playing for years, has sunk his teeth into this title and is playing through the story. If you're on the fence- don't be. Plain and simple. Now that we have that out the way let&

Monster Hunter World: 10 Tips for Beginners

Unless you've been under a rock you've probably noticed that Monster Hunter World is a huge hit right now. The game has shipped 5 million copies worldwide and has already sold 1.3 million copies in the United States. While this installment is much friendlier to newcomers than past titles there is still a large chunk of the game that you are left to figure out on your own. Even as someone who has put ~400 hours into the monster hunter series over the last few years I found it took even me a few hours to get comfortable with all the new features. If you find yourself a bit overwhelmed, hopefully this list can help you out a bit! 1.) Don't Let the Timer Scare You All quests in Monster Hunter are timed, however I RARELY ever have problems completing the quest in time. There is plenty of time to complete quests in the 50 allotted minutes so don't panic watching the clock tick down. 2.) Upgrade Often at the Forge It is very easy to get caught up in the momen
