Activision today aired the first trailer for this fall’s Call of Duty: WWII. The trailer features grizzly scenes from the iconic invasion of Normandy, which will be the primary setting of WWII’s single-player campaign.
According to Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg, the game’s story “strives to capture the intense bonds of brotherhood,” while also delivering a grandiose action campaign similar to those of past Call of Duty games. No doubt, the game will bear a modernized resemblance to 2005’s Call of Duty 2, which opened with a Normandy Beach set piece almost identical to that of Steven Spielberg’s film, Saving Private Ryan.
Call of Duty: WWII’s trailer debut comes in the wake of several leaks outing the game’s title and release date. Activision originally confirmed the game’s historic setting during an earnings call earlier this year. Call of Duty: WWII launches worldwide on November 3.
