Activision made some huge waves following the announcement of Call of Duty: WWII, a game that offers the events of the infamous World War 2. The studio did not even make some massive promotions to build the hype, as the fans saw what potentials it can offer. Well, the fact that Infinite Warfare did not really become a hit could have somehow boosted the title's popularity in one way or another.
According to Engadget, what makes Call of Duty: WWII extra special is the game's take on history and the events that took place during that time. As a matter of fact, this is where the developers of the studio really do best. Hence, it is always a wonder why it resorted to a cosmic battle with Infinite Warfare.
During the studio's presentation at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), with the help of Sledgehammer, the game's campaign was shown. It was wrapped in cinematic beauty, making it feel like players are just watching yet another war-themed film. But not really, because it is the upcoming title's gameplay footage.
Based on the multiplayer reveal trailer for Call of Duty: WWII, a lot of antique weapons and whatnots can be seen. There were even trench warfare and close-quarter combats, making the experience a bit scary and fun. Players would even love the various blind corners and hiding places, most of which they can simply walk past. The developers have certainly made this aspect of the game quite impressive.
The Verge, on the other hand, speaks differently of Call of Duty: WWII based on the E3 trailer. The publication cites that, regardless of the new story and features, among others, it is just another typical shooter for the aging franchise. It does not really provide any significant thing to say about the history it is trying to project. Besides, it has been told countless of times in books, films and the alike.
