Will Call of Duty: World War 2 be worth buying? Through WW2 and Beyond

Gaming, Reviews, Trends

The latest upcoming Call of Duty: World War 2 or WW2 is going to be released on November 3. While a lot of the COD franchise fans may be excited about the games, especially since the trailer was goosebumps inducing, the time for the announcement was perfect.

However, we are skeptical whether or not Call of Duty: WW2 is worth buying. After years of failed games, Activision did try to bring the series back to its roots, and that’s what most fans wanted. With the success of the World War 1 based Battlefield 1, it was only logical that the public interest was shifting from modern-esque games.

Sledgehammer games will be developing the game, same company which had developed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty: Advanced warfare, both of which are future based. It will be interesting to see what the developers concoct up with their latest project.

The Trailer

 

The trailer shows us a very typical Call of Duty setup, a few heroic and iconic characters; working up the story to create lovable entities then brutally getting them killed, a few bad ass soldiers, a lot of cinematic, suspense filled scenes and what seems to be the invasion of Normandy and the daring sacrifice of  American Soldiers on the Omaha Beach.

Call of Duty: WW2 Campaign

First of all, the campaign will be a redeeming factor of the game – we can expect an amazing, story driven and cinematic campaign with multiple stealth based “capture the objectives” missions, a wide variety of characters, emotional dialogue to build up empathy for characters and best of all, a soundtrack to join it all together.

While retaining that typical COD campaign design, as mentioned before, the game will be more story driven. A shorter, well written campaign with everything the community wants including COD MW2 type stealth missions, interrogations and more.

Call of Duty: WW2 Multiplayer

The multiplayer side of the game will be specially interesting – we saw Battlefield 1’s multiplayer-heavy game while keeping the campaigns short and sweet. We’re going to see the same thing again with COD: WW2. However, the basic ingredients which make the series will remain, you won’t be able to ride planes, cars or tanks and fundamentals like care packages, air strikes, mortar strikes etc will remain.

However, we may be seeing larger maps this time around, not Battlefield 1 sized big but considerably bigger than what is norm, the multiplayer side will be basic, clean and comfortable without anyone having superhuman abilities. You won’t be able to regenerate your hp like in BF1 and medic kits will help you out when you’re in trouble.

Classes will be emphasised, medics, supports, gunners etc will serve special purposes when it comes to team play.

Conclusion

We have essentially just predicted what the upcoming Call of Duty: WW2 will have; without a doubt though, the game will be WORTH BUYING. It’s a fresh step ahead (or backwards?) when it comes to pushing the series forward. It’s something new, refreshing and the right step at the right time from Activision.
