According to Kotaku, Activision has announced yet another title under the CoD franchise. This time, players will have to fight in the war-torn battlefields of World War II. While Activision has yet to share the finer details about the game, it plans to hold an official reveal next Wednesday at 1 pm ET. In spite of this, there had already been several early marketing materials that were leaked around the last couple of months.
The developer, Sledgehammer Games, is Activision-owned and has actually developed the Advanced Warfare title. Finally, the game is scheduled to release around November with no set date as of now.
Sony To Get Timed Exclusive DLC
On the other hand, it seems like Sony has gotten the upper hand in terms of DLC. GamingBolt shares that the PlayStation 4 box art reveals that WWII will have exclusive content first for 30 days. The box art for system revealed by Amazon UK has the phrase "Play Map Packs 30 Days Early" engraved on the front.
Activision has yet to share what exactly is its plan on releasing as bonus content. Perhaps it will reveal the official details during the livestream next week. However, judging by the theme, there may be a chance that these maps be real-life locations based off on the WWII war.
The game has gotten a fair share of screenshots with no gameplay clips as of now. For now, it seems like fans will just have to wait until next week to get the full details regarding the upcoming game. Those who want the timed exclusive DLC should pick up the PS4 version upon release. Call of Duty: WWII will also launch on the Xbox One and PC.
