Call of Duty: World War II overview
Call of Duty: WWII does away with CoD’s recent obsession with futuristic settings, and returns the franchise to “boots on the ground” gameplay. The campaign allows the player to play through the pivotal moments of World War II, building up a narrative across several skirmishes and excellently animated cutscenes. The multiplayer, which for most is the main draw of  the game, is as frenetic as ever, with quick respawn times and a very fast-paced style of play.

Military FPS.

November 3, 2017.

Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
