Get ready to immerse yourself in World War 2. Call of Duty: WWII (available now) lives up to all of its expectations. Getting back to the clean gameplay of the Call of Duty franchise without having to battle evil robots and futuristic guns is an absolute joy.
During this iteration of Call of Duty, you can travel everywhere in campaign play — from D-Day to the Battle of the Bulge — with each battle becoming more and more of a challenge to complete. The game provides you with a multiplayer play option and lets you select your class — Infantry, Airborne, Armored, Mountain and Expeditionary — each rank providing unique gameplay that will have you at the edge of your gaming seat.
The competitive multiplayer mode seems to have undergone a revitalization based around its new center space called “headquarters.” In this social space, you can show off accomplishments and trophies to other players, as well as bonus features: a mail call, which includes items you have earned and been awarded; operations, orders you are awarded each day and each week when you complete challenges; quartermaster in which you can buy collections and contract; theater in where you can watch certain briefings; and a firing range, which allows you to sharpen your shooting skills.
If you’re really looking for a challenge that requires both teamwork and impressive first-person shooting skills, give Nazi Zombie mode a try. It will require great coordination on your part to survive.
