PC PS4 XONE

Fans of Call of Duty series have for years been asking for the games to come back to its roots and set the series’ next installment in the World War II era. Call of Duty: WWII for PC, PS4 and XONE is most definitely the answer to those calls. Sledgehammer Games, WWII developers, aimed to recreate the war with reasonable realism, considering the genre standards, and focus on the cooperation between the soldiers during battles. Though the game follows the trail of the previous games of the series, Sledgehammer Games made some bold decisions and implemented some changes and tweaks in gameplay mechanics. As usual, the game offers a single player campaign, a couple of multiplayer modes, and the new incarnation of the popular Zombie mode.

The Plot

As the title suggests, Call of Duty: WWII for PC, PS4 and XONE take place during the second World War. In the single player campaign, players will follow the story of a small military unit that was a part of the famous 1st Infantry Divisuion (the Big Red One). A young Texan, “Red” Daniels, is one of the unit’s best solider. Developers emphasize not only his relationship with his team mates, but also with other groups that fight with the Nazis. Acordingly with the motto that ‘in war no one fights alone’, we will join forces with the French resistance and the British army. During a series of missions, the game will allow the players to take part in some of the crucial battles of World War II, like landing in Normandy, the Ardenes offensive, the Liberation of Paris and, last but not least, the Battle of Berlin.

Mechanics

Just like in the previous Call of Duty games, action in Call of Duty: WWII for PC, PS4 and XONE is presented from a first-person perspective (FPP). As we play, we will fight on diverse maps, like dense forests and the streets of French and Belgian cities. Of course, we will also take part in big scale battle operations like the previously mentioned landing in Normandy. The game offers a rich, realistic arsenal, with every weapon being reconstructed with the highest attention to detail. During our adventure, we will use many types of gunslike pistols, machine rifles, or more advanced weapons like the flamethrower.

It is worth noting that this time developers decided to introduce some gameplay tweaks and changes. First of all, our protagonist’s friends play a bigger role ine the game than before. The game has no automatic health regeneration (a solution that many thought was a permanent element of Call of Duty games). We will have to ask our brothers in arms for ammunition and health kits.

Game Modes

Along with the single player campaign, Call of Duty: WWII for PC, PS4 and XONE offers a wide range of multiplayer modes. The newest, narrated mode called War stands out among them. In it, players will take part in the most important battles of the European theatre of war. Additionally, the game comes with a social hub called Headquarters. We can meet other players there outside the battle. Our character’s class (we can be a tankman, a paratrooper, or a standard infantry soldier), looks, and equipment can be customized with the so-called Division mechanics. A new incarnation of the Zombie mode complements the list of game modes. In it, the players will face undead Nazis in an aesthetic resembling B-class movies.

Technical Aspects

Games from Call of Duty series always had great visuals. Same thing can be said about Call of Duty: WWII for PC, PS4 and XONE. Character models are highly detailed, just like the visual and particle effects of combat. As we play, we are accompanied by suggestive soundtrack and the realistic sounds of war.
