Each year Call of Duty publisher Activision puts together a fun live-action trailer, and apparently the serious subject matter of World War II isn’t going to buck tradition. Today, they released a new live-action trailer for Call of Duty: WWII. The first-person shooter looks to be a return to the series’ roots, as it’s all about “boots on the ground” and more traditional gameplay. Recent titles, such as Black Ops III and Infinite Warfare, featured more of a focus on futuristic tech and mobility.
tells the story of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, a young recruit in the U.S. First Infantry Division who experiences combat for the first time on D-Day, one of the largest amphibious assaults in history. After surviving the beaches of Normandy, Red and his squad will fight their way across Europe, engaging the enemy in iconic battle locations such as the Hürtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge, as they make their way into Germany. The journey begins on November 3.
Call of Duty: WWII releases on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
