It's official: Call of Duty will dip its toes back into World War II this November. Activision and Sledgehammer Games revealed today that Call of Duty: WWII will officially launch on November 3.
Alongside a livestream reveal, Activision gave us a taste of what the game's story has in store:
Sledgehammer and Activision are promising a grounded experience that returns to the series' roots. That follows on from last year's Infinite Warfare, which failed to garner the same excitement as previous entries in the series with its futuristic combat. Call of Duty: WWII will represent the franchise's first steps back into the second World War since 2008's World at War.
Call of Duty: WWII is up for pre-order now, and Activision is promising private multiplayer beta access to anyone who orders early. And speaking of multiplayer, more information will be revealed at this year's E3.
Updated April 26, 2017: If there was any suspicion that a trip back to World War 2 would mean no zombies, you can also put those worries to rest.
