Call of Duty: WWII is taking the franchise back to it’s roots, and the game’s latest trailer invites you to reunite with your friends for some Call of Duty fun.
2017 marks the year that Call of Duty is shedding it’s futuristic skin in favor of something more traditional. Call of Duty: WWII is leaving jetpacks behind in favor of the World War II era, a setting that hasn’t been seen since 2008s Call of Duty: World at War. Bringing the franchise back to this time period is not only symbolic for the company, but for the many players who have felt the franchise had lost its way. As such, this is the perfect time to gather up all your friends for some Call of Duty.
Reassemble, a live-action trailer by director Simon McQuoid, captures this feeling as a group of friends reunite to play Call of Duty: WWII. A lot has happened over the past decade in their lives, but its Call of Duty that brings them all back together.
“Call of Duty: WWII is a return to the boots on the ground gameplay and camaraderie of playing Call of Duty together with your friends. The enthusiasm and anticipation for this year’s game is incredible and speaks to the passion of our fans around the world,” said Tim Ellis, CMO, Activision. “‘Reassemble!’ spans the globe in a series of films about gamers, across all walks of life, getting their squads together with one mission – to play Call of Duty.”
Call of Duty: WWII is out November 3 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
