In November 2017, the latest entry in the long-running "Call of Duty" franchise is planned to launch. But, unlike recent entries in the franchise, the latest "Call of Duty" is taking the series back to its roots.
That's right: Rather than the space-based warfare that's become common in recent years, the newest "Call of Duty" game is returning to World War II.
So, what can you expect from this year's game? Here's everything we know about "Call of Duty: WWII" so far!
In "Call of Duty: WWII," you'll play as Ronald “Red” Daniels, a United States Army private. Red is a member of the US 1st Infantry Division.
Red's tour of duty will put him at the forefront of World War II's most famous battles, including D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge.
Only the game's campaign has been detailed so far, but fans should expect a robust online multiplayer component as well. Activision says the multiplayer mode — a fan-favorite of the series — is another return to the "roots" of the "Call of Duty" franchise.
Outside of the two main modes — single-player campaign and multiplayer — there's a new co-operative mode that hasn't been revealed just yet.
If nothing else, this year's game looks far better than previous years (graphically-speaking).
"Call of Duty: WWII" is scheduled to launch on November 3 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Here's the first look of the game in action:
