Major Historical Battle Announced In Call Of Duty: WWII
Sledgehammer games disclosed the knowledge that the Battle of the Bulge will be explored within the campaign of the newest addition to the Call Of Duty family during the making-of livestream.
The game’s creative director, Brett Robbins, confirmed the battle in response to a fan’s question. Robbins stated:
I’m not sure I’m supposed to say this, but I’m going to say it anyway, yes, we go to the Battle of the Bulge. That was a huge conflict. It’s a huge battle and we had to include it.”
The Battle of the Bulge took place on December 16th 1944 and lasted until January 25th 1945, and was the final major German offensive on the Western Front of the war. The Allies suffered a massive blow to their numbers, with casualties racking up each day. Due to the cold, harsh winter weather, their chances of survival were significantly decreased. The 1st Infantry Division, whom are the main focus of the WWII campaign, fought tooth and nail consecutively for over a month. It is more than likely that the battle spans across more than a single campaign mission.
The majority of the livestream was made up of BTS information that didn’t reveal any other details about the game itself, but a morsel of information was unveiled. Robbins announced that that game will, in fact, have “female characters and soldiers in multiplayer and Zombies and throughout the game”. Beforehand, it was subject to discussion whether or not the females’ appearances will be frequented across all game modes, with the popular game mode Zombies being under question.
The next livestream within the series of the Making Call of Duty: WWII won’t be aired until this year’s E3 conference , resulting in an agonising wait to hear anything about the new instalment within the franchise.
Call Of Duty: WWII is released on November 3rd across PC, Xbox One and PlayStation. There are rumours of a Nintendo Switch version being under development, and there is strong reason to believe so, too. The rumours stem from the option of being able to connect your Nintendo account to the Call Of Duty website, even though the option to do this was removed following the release of Black Ops 3 in 2015.
Will we find out more before E3 this year? What do you think of the Call Of Duty game? Are you excited to find out more at this year’s E3 conference? Or are you curious to see how the new instalment compares with the old COD? Whatever you think, let us know in the comments below!
