One of the hottest video games of the holidays, Call of Duty: WWII, is down to $37.99 on Amazon for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This is the lowest direct price drop on Amazon ever. It beats out the $40 Black Friday pricing. This is part of Amazon's Gold Box deals, so the price is good today only.

Call of Duty: WWII is a first-person shooter that takes place in, you guessed it, World War 2.

This game has several modes, including a single player campaign that focuses on individual soldiers and specific battles during the war. The multiplayer is always the cornerstone of a game like this and features Axis vs. Allied shoot-outs. Then there's the Nazi Zombie mode, which is a more cooperative multiplayer game.

So far, Metacritic gives the PS4 version a 79 out of 100 and the Xbox One version an 81 based on the average scores from critics.
