Call Of Duty – An Introduction

Call of Duty is a first-person shooter video game developed by Sledgehammer Games, which was first introduced in October of 2003. The game was initially developed for Windows, but soon expanded to include Xbox and PlayStation consoles.

Its popularity was more or less instantaneous, and it currently holds the position of fifth most popular video game ever.

Call of Duty WWII

Call of Duty WWII is the fourteenth installment in the series, and the first game to be set in the Second World War since the 2008 version of the game, Call of Duty, World at War. The last 8 games in the series have featured modern day warfare, or futuristic sci-fi conflicts. This version of Call of Duty returns to its original roots and much like Canadian mobile casinos it’s set to be a smash hit from day one.

The developers of the game have seemed to have paid their respects to the real-life soldiers who fought in World War II, and have made the series as realistic to the real-life horrors of the Second World War as possible. Except of course the Zombie Nazis, who make their comeback in this instalment.

Setting for the Game

The game is set in what is known as the European Theatre of World War II. This was a large area of particularly dense fighting which spanned across Europe from the invasion of Poland by Germany and the Soviet Union.

The game revolves around a 1st Inventory Division squad, and follows their battles across the Western Front. There are multiplayer levels which take players to different fronts not seen in the main campaign, and Zombies mode also makes a comeback.

Features of the Game

Call of Duty WWII differs from the last 3 versions of the game in that it removes the movement system that was available before, and instead sticks to the more traditional method of gameplay.

Unlike the last 2 versions of the game, it does not feature a sprint movement, opting instead for a slide movement, which allows players to quickly slide onto the ground. There is also a movement feature which allows plays to throw themselves forward and hit the ground in order to achieve emergency cover.

Health Regeneration

Call of Duty World War II is the first version of the game since the original Call of Duty that does not offer health regeneration. Players must get their health packs from medic teammates, and likewise must get their ammunition from other team mates as well. The difficulty setting has also been removed from the campaign as all players are automatically placed into “hardcore mode’.

Multiplayer Mode

In multiplayer mode, players are assigned at random to a side – either Allied or Axis. The Call of Duty World War II multiplayer mode features divisions unlike the create a class-systems of previous versions of the game. Each division features its specific training, weapon skills and ammunition.

Social Aspect

Call of Duty World War II features a large social hub, where players can interact with one another. They can practice their shooting skills, engage in practice fights and watch other players open loot boxes. The hub is set on the Omaha Beach in Normandy.


Call of Duty fans who pre-order World War II, will be invited to participate in a closed beta initially only for PlayStation 4 users on 25th – 28th August 2017, and then later for Xbox users 1st – 4th September 2017.

Sledgehammer Games have returned to their roots and seemingly released a classic version of this well-loved game.
