Call Of Duty WWII's story trailer reveals first plot details
The new Call Of Duty will tell the story of a US infantry private who experiences combat for the first time on D-Day, the first story trailer for the game has revealed.
The multi-award-winning gaming series has returned to its original Second World War setting for its 2017 instalment after several years in the near and far future, promising to take players through some of the most infamous encounters of the war, including the Battle of the Bulge.
The game will tell the story of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, a young recruit in the First Infantry Division of the US Army, and is part of the D-Day landings and Allied assault on Normandy.
There is no first-person gameplay footage in the trailer, however references to the Nazi rounding up of Jewish soldiers and citizens are shown, a striking subject to highlight in a video game trailer.
Michael Condrey, the co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, who developed the game, told Polygon earlier this year that Call Of Duty WWII was about storytelling and it would not hide elements of the conflict.
“I don’t want to get into the full narrative arc, but suffice it to say there is a flux in human history because of the power of those atrocities committed and we want to tell the whole story,” he said.
The game is out on November 3.
