A new game is set to shaken the competition within the shooter video game genre, and this is no other than Activision's Call of Duty: WWII. Although it is yet to arrive, it's starting to make huge airwaves, seemingly challenging another popular title of the same genre -- Battlefield 1. With the game gradually nearing its release date, it is interesting to know what exactly it can offer and more importantly, if it can really be better game than BF1.
In an article from Dream Team FC, a list of reasons why Call of Duty: WWII will be a champion title this year compared to Battlefield 1 has been detailed. First on the list is the upcoming game's setting, which, as the name suggests, relives all the happenings from the infamous war. This is definitely a complete shift from the modern setting the studio did to Infinite Warfare. A title that did not really capture the hearts of many COD fans.
Also, there are talks about Call of Duty: WWII arriving with a bundled offer of Modern Warfare 2. Going back to Infinite Ware, it should be noted that the original version of MW2 was bundled. There's really reason to believe that this will also be the same direction that Activision will choose. Add to this the fact that the bundled title will arrive as a remastered version.
Above all of these, one that will completely standout is the multiplayer feature of Call of Duty: WWII. Obviously, the developers want fans and players alike to go back to the roots where everyone is introduced a fast-paced combat experience. Heck, the game is even expected to introduce a complete co-operative story mode, one that is totally different from the single-player campaign. It remains a mystery, however, if this multiplayer mode can be played either online or locally (or perhaps both).
Alphr, on the other hand, reports that Call of Duty: WWII has just been announced as the Call of Duty game of this year. Fortunately for the expecting fans, Activision will be hosting a live-streamed reveal of the game come April 26 at around 6 PM BST. Here, the studio will be giving a preview to what the game is all about, as well as discuss a couple of interesting details about it.
