In the end, the rumours proved true, and a new Call of Duty game set during World War II is indeed coming this November. Activision released an impressive and action-packed reveal trailer which shows us what to expect from the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII game, while also delivering a surprise or two to fans of the much-loved military shooter series. And without further ado, here follow the highlights of the Call of Duty: WWII reveal trailer.
A World War II setting
New characters, including one played by actor Josh Duhamel
Call of Duty has featured some top-notch actors in the last couple years, including Kevin Spacey who played Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s villain in 2014. Also, last year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s antagonist Salen Kotch was played by none other than Kit Harington of Game of Thrones fame.
And Call of Duty: WWII will feature actor Josh Duhamel, who will be doing motion capture work for the game, playing character William Pearsen, a tough-talking World War II vet. This guy is a private in the US’ 1st Infantry Division, and according to Duhamel he’s “a bit of a dick. He’s somebody who’s mission-before-man”. He’s not who you play in the game, though. Rather, the game’s protagonist is Private Red Daniels, a young and inexperienced soldier who’s just joined the conflict. And you’ll also get to play as a female French resistance fighter at some point in the game’s single player campaign too.
