Activision and Sledgehammer Games announced Call of Duty: WWII launches for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on November 3.

View the reveal trailer below:

"This is based on one of the most monumental moments in human history, and we get to honor and respect that global sacrifice, to honor the men and women who fought for freedom on all fronts, on a global scale," said Sledgehammer Games co-founder and studio head Michael Condrey. 

"The story Call of Duty: WWII follows a global and diverse cast, but for me it honors my father Ronald “Red” Daniels and his squad, and not just what they went through from a global perspective, but what they went through personally.  We like to tell a story within a story, and this is no different," added Sledgehammer Games co-founder and studio head Glen Schofield

Here is an overview of the game:

Welcome to the Fighting First
No mission too difficult. No sacrifice too great. Duty first!

Call of Duty: WWII focuses on the actions of a squad from 1944 to 1945, but will also touch on events from 1940 to 1944 to help set the stage for the narrative and establish the characters. It takes place in the European theater of conflict, at a time when the Allied forces were finally starting to gather strength on their march into Germany. You and your squad will fight your way through occupied France, Belgium, and across the Rhine into Germany.

The Front Lines and Beyond

Highlighting the diverse ensemble cast, players will also encounter the French resistance movement, featuring strong and vibrant characters who were fighting for their homeland even after all seemed lost. The game takes players from the beaches of Normandy to the liberation of Paris and beyond, across a variety of heart-racing engagements and epic battles.  

To complement today’s gameplay reveal trailer and touch on more of the action that is coming in Call of Duty: WWII, here’s a few insights on two of the missions from the Campaign:

  • Hürtgen Forest: An old-growth forest on the German border where Allied forces engage in devastating encounters. In the heat of battle, the German Army uses tree burst bombs that detonate at treetop level, showering soldiers with wooden shrapnel. When your unit is zeroed-in-on by hostile artillery, the forest explodes around you as debris rains down.
  • Normandy: From inside a Higgins landing boat, your squad will storm Omaha Beach in a visceral audiovisual experience unlike any D-Day landing experienced in a game to date. You and your fellow soldiers must overcome the enemy defenses to serve as the tip of the spear for the Allied invasion.


There will be a Multiplayer reveal for Call of Duty: WWII at E3, which will take place in Los Angeles from June 13-15. You won’t want to miss it.

Multiplayer elements coming to Call of Duty: WWII include:

  • War: This narrative-driven mode brings a gripping new layer of excitement to Axis vs. Allies team play.
  • Divisions: A new approach to Create-a-Class and character customization as you enlist in a division and progress through the ranks.
  • Headquarters: A brand-new, social feature for Call of Duty, where you rally and interact with your fellow soldiers.

do NOT buy the season pass or pre-order the game.

because it allows companies to get a profit without making a quality product on day one. Get a chance to look at the entire game first.

I see. So you have an idealistic objection. Fair enough.

I hope it's great, I loved World at War back then on the PS3 days. I have some fond memories of it, specifically some multiplayer moments I had in it.

Or you can pre-order the game on Amazon, get the beta code, and then cancel pre-order.

Salnax (on 28 April 2017)

I'd lament about WWII being cliche, but it isn't 2008 anymore. Yes, that was the last time this series covered the war.

So, basically it's a license to print money.

Panama (on 26 April 2017)

I grew up with MoH games and CoD1 & 2. Well excited for the campaign. Does seem to be American focussed yet again though. Fingers crossed they take BF1s approach and have multiple fronts.

AlfredoTurkey (on 27 April 2017)

Considering that the US is COD's biggest market and the fact that without them, we'd all be speaking German right now, I think it's justified.

They'd better not make split screen where it's cropped on the screen.

No Eastern Front and this will be disappointing to me.

shikamaru317 (on 26 April 2017)

They are most likely saving stuff like the Eastern Front, African theater, and Pacific theater for future games. I have a feeling Activision is finally going to do what people have been saying they should do for years now; 1 studio for future CoD games (Treyarch?), 1 studio for modern CoD games (Infinity Ward?), and 1 studio for historic CoD games (Sledgehammer?). I think we'll see Black Ops 4 next year, Modern Warfare 4 in 2019, and another WW2 game in 2020.
