After focusing on multiplayer with the first part of its Call of Duty: WWII advertising campaign, Activision has switched gears and decided to begin showing campaign footage for the first time. The result is today’s almost entirely cutscene-based story trailer, which mixes beautiful looking visuals with war time scenery.
Although this is merely a glimpse at some of the cutscenes we’ll be watching as we play through the game, it’s still nice to see. Plus, what it shows is awfully impressive, which makes it easier to want the game.
Call of Duty: WWII 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.
Call of Duty: WWII will take the fight to the Nazi Party on November 3rd.
