Call of Duty: WWII gets November 3 release date and first full trailer
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.

As a german I love to kick Nasi asses but most american movies and films are just too much heroism.
But I'm not talking about this. I'm talking about the fact that all games and most films show the Americans as the error free heroes and the basic German soldier as scruple, crazy monsters.
But in fact the war was fought by normal men on both sides (I don't mean the SS). That's an important fact. We always think something like this could never happen again because nobody could be that evil. But in reality most soldiers were just soldiers. Just like today.There were war crimes on both sides. But the USA seems to have problems with that. They can show Russians burning defenceless German soldiers (CoD WaW) but not their own people?
War shouldn't be glorified.
Something like this would be great: The Germans are killing and torturing some American soldiers and then there's the American revenge unscrupulously and brutal. There are too many people who think war is something honorable. Sometimes war is necessary (like to free Europe from the Nasis) but it's never honorable.
The contrast between the euphoria at the begging of the war and the harsh, brutal reality of war is always a great background for a plot.
