Call of Duty: WW2 is officially available. In the game’s announcement, details were relatively scarce, but the basic things we do know: COD WW2 multiplayer will be as prominent as ever, COD: WW2 Nazi Zombies will be a thing, and the COD: WW2 campaign should offer all the usual greats. The history of the budget beats.
There’s also a new social hub at Headquarters, a new War mode, and the chance to give the game an early shot with the Call of Duty: WW2 private beta.

Call of Duty: Nazi Zombies of World War II
As we get closer to launch, we have details on Nazi Zombies and multiplayer following some details in the game’s announcement.
It seems that they are not only zombies, but also the literally infamous ones Nazi The zombies are ready to return, with gameplay similar to previous Call of Duty installments but with a World War II setting.
This was later confirmed in a Comic-Con reveal in July. Set in a Bavarian village in Mittelburg, it will begin with David Tennant (Doctor Who), Elodie Yung (Daredevil), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings), Udo Kier (Melancholia) and Ving Rhames (Dawn of the Dead), each of whom have An image will be captured in the game.
Call of Duty: WW2 Multiplayer and other modes
Let’s get this out of the way: COD: WW2 multiplayer will be “boots on the ground.”
This is what we know:
- Headquarters – Call of Duty’s first exclusive social space, the Headquarters area allows you to show off your various levels of prestige and rewards. You can also warm up at a shooting range, participate in a 1-on-1 pit, watch esports matches in the theater, and “wield AA weapons to earn rewards,” according to Activision. Carlton’s dance is not confirmed.

- Divisions: Divisions, according to Activision, “immerses players in the heroic journey of enlisting in the world’s most historic war.” Apparently you can choose from a variety of these divisions, including infantry and armor divisions. However, it’s unclear what they actually are, although the Armored Division certainly suggests that vehicles will play an important role.
- War Mode: Another new mode, this one appears to be based on Battlefield 1’s Operations; Immersive, large-scale battles that reproduce real war conflicts. The game is “team-driven” and divided between the Axis and the Allies, based on strategic objectives.
As for how the game itself will flow, although there has been no explicit mention of details such as exosuits and the like, everything indicates that they will be left behind.
COD: World War II will undoubtedly feature some of its usual tropes (it would be surprising if there weren’t kill streaks, for example) and the overall flow will surely remain fast and frenetic. Maybe less the lasers.
Meanwhile, the headquarters center looks like the most important addition. This is the first time Call of Duty will feature a social area, with 48 players gathering on a post-D-Day beach and undertaking missions, testing weapons at a shooting range, emotes, and an MMO-style mail system, with developer . comparing space to Orgrimmar from World of Warcraft.
There is a possibility that online matches will only have up to 18 players, with only the social area of the venue hosting more.
The other tidbit we gleaned from that quick look was that the highest rank shown was 55, suggesting that’s probably the point at which you’ll get ‘Prestige’ and start over.
Call of Duty: World War II campaign details
Returning to single-player, most of the talk so far has focused on tone.
COD: We are promised that World War II will be gritty and realistic, as well as another “blockbuster” story. Much of the tone so far has absolutely screamed Band of Brothers, mixed with a little Saving Private Ryan and a generous helping of “Oorah.”
Meanwhile, Sledgehammer Games describes its development as “a journey of inspiration,” and during the reveal event there were many conversations centered around how important it was to them to get every last detail right.
That said, it’s not all of World War II that COH: WW2 aims to cover.
The first mission of the campaign will be another account of the beach assault in Normandy during D-Day. After that, it is a largely American-centric account of a specific group of men, albeit with a British officer (who is listen in the trailer) as a key link and some occasional departures to deal with other stories of the war.
The period covered is 1944-1945, so the final part of the war; we’d expect another World at War-style fall of Berlin to appear in the climax.
Call of Duty: WWII release date, special editions and pre-orders
The release date for Call of Duty: WW2 is November 3, 2017 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
In addition to the standard versions, there are the Pro editions, for PS4 and Xbox One, which will be released on the same date.
It’s not entirely clear what the Pro editions will offer just yet, but we do know that they will include the base game, the season pass, a collectible steelbook, and “additional bonus content” at the very least.
We will continue to update this page as more information about Call of Duty: WW2 comes out, so stay tuned!
