    Call of Duty : WWII

    Activision announced yesterday that there would be a new Call of Duty. And they seemed to finally listen to what the fans wanted and have called it - Call of Duty: WW II. No other details were released other than that but we can all assume from the title that they have finally decided to stop going further into the future and have set the game in the past - World War 2 to be precise. They did mention that they would release more details on the 26th of April so hopefully a trailer will be shown as well. Personally for me I won't be purchasing it no matter how good it looks. I've gotten used to the big maps of BF1 and I'll struggle on the smaller maps of COD

    Another year and another COD. It's probably going to be the same cinematic, uber-linear, scripted gameplay that we've seen the series had time and time again. If it has a zombies mode or a survival mode like the one seen in Modern Warfare 3, I might rent it but beyond that I don't have any interest.

    It is interesting that it's bringing back the WW2 setting. Perhaps we'll see a resurgence in that setting? If so, I hope that someone will make a WW2 game that is more of a stylized, pulpy take on WW2. Kind of like Medal of Honor back on the PS1 where you're infiltrating behind enemy lines, performing sabotages and other forms of daring do. I would love to see someone make a WW2 game like that. I would ask for a new Medal of Honor, but it's owned by EA so nothing good could come from that one.

    To be fair I think everyone could see that they would be going for the WW2 setting. Battlefield One was a huge success and I think it stole quite a few loyal COD fans which made EA go back to the drawing board. The futuristic crap that they were coming out with was only liked by the little 8 old kids that bought the game using their moms credit card. You should try out Battlefield One, I'm not sure how you would feel about the multiplayer but the singleplayer tackles World War 1 quite well. I genuinely feel scared playing in the forest when there is fog because I don't know when I'm going to be attacked or come across an enemy base.

    I'm sure Battlefield 1's success had something to do Activision going back to a historical war, which is sort ironic if you think about it since EA turned Medal of Honor into a modern warfare game to cash in on COD's success. I have a few friends who really enjoyed Battlefield 1. I played Battlefield 3, which I didn't care for but I did like Battlefield Hardline's campaign. I'm skeptical at how well WW1 would translate in a video game but, if what you're saying is of any indication, they managed to pull it off. I'm busy with Nier:Automata at the moment but I do have that game on my gamefly list so I'll give it a shot one of these days.

    It's a great game but not something you can play for ages like Battlefield 4. Like you said, WW1 just isn't the perfect setting for a game because of a quite a lot of things that only came around the time WW2 started. Other than the skins there is very little customisation that can be done, the weapons get boring after a while and I think the biggest problem is the Premium Pass EA are selling. It's causing the playerbase to get split into two groups - free guys and the ones playing the premium maps. I'm glad EA have decided to ditch premium pass maps in future games.
