Call of Duty: World War 2 at Sony PlayStation E3 2017 revealed a wealth of gameplay. From ships under fire to streets rife with explosions and skies filled with flak, it appears to be the bloodiest rendition of World War 2 we’ve seen in awhile. It comes with some information of what to expect in terms of multiplayer too.
"The new Divisions feature redefines how players invest in their MP career, giving them the chance to choose from five divisions, each with their own specialized training and weapons skills. In War Mode, an entirely fresh Call of Duty experience, players must works as a team and fight for control through multiple strategic objectives," Activision's trailer description reads.
Call of Duty: World War 2’s release date is November 3 and there will be a Call of Duty: World War 2 private beta for those pre-ordering the game. No date has been announced for the beta just yet aside from it coming 'later this year.' For reference, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's beta was in August with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's being in October. In addition to this, there will be multiple variants of the game up for pre-order.
The Call of Duty: World War 2 private beta will take place on the PS4 first with Xbox One and PC to follow.
