Activision will be repeating the rather vulgar trick of withholding a beloved Call of Duty map for Call of Duty: WWII at launch. This time it’s the legendary Carentan map, one of the most iconic in series history. If you want to play Carentan at launch, you’ll have to stump up £39.99 / $49.99 for the COD: WWII Season Pass.
We're back again with another giveaway. Some massive AAA games are right around the corner and I'm giving one GD'er the chance to pick between three of the biggest games this holiday season. I'm giving away a copy of either COD WWII, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War or Assassin's Creed Origins to one lucky winner.
Call of Duty: WWII's PC open beta kicks off this weekend, providing grizzled vets and newbies alike the chance to test out the multiplayer component of Sledgehammer's shooter. Last week we got the minimum specs, now we've got the official recommended requirements for COD: WWII.
It’s officially beta season, what with Destiny 2 and how Call of Duty: WWII’s upcoming private multiplayer beta. It’s pre-orders only (Boo! Hiss!), but Sledgehammer has at least provided us with a brand spanking new gameplay trailer to celebrate the occasion. And, well, it doesn’t disappoint. Call of Duty looks firmly back on track.
It leaked in spectacularly blurry fashion earlier this week, but now Activision has revealed the official trailer for Call of Duty: WWII’s Nazi Zombies mode. They’re going down the fully fledged horror route this time around, and the trailer looks frankly insane.
I honestly didn’t think I’d be writing this, but Call of Duty: WWII’s multiplayer looks like absolutely hot stuff in a new 13-minute gameplay video. When Activision claimed the series was going back to its roots, it’s hard to argue otherwise looking at the footage - this is the original Call of Duty reimagined for 2017. 
The Call of Duty: WWII reveal wasn’t met with the record-breaking hostility last year’s Infinite Warfare received, but it’s fair to say some fans aren’t happy. Of course there’s the usual segment which will now vociferously hate anything with the COD name attached, unwilling to forgive old sins, but even regular Call of Duty fans are a little bit disappointed about what could be perceived as a step back for the series.
A little word of warning for those of you looking to pre-order Call of Duty: WWII in order to gain access to the beta - at the moment there are no plans to hold a PC beta for Call of Duty: WWII.
Today’s the big day - Call of Duty: WWII is going to be officially revealed to the world. Expect a major blowout from Activision today. By the sounds of it we’ll be getting a gameplay rundown, a look at multiplayer, and some co-op. The works basically, as Activision and Sledgehammer Games look to catapult the Call of Duty franchise back on an upward trajectory.
OK, so the Call of Duty: WWII didn’t happen this last weekend as was rumoured, but we have had the first screenshots leak out. And yes, it is now officially Call of Duty: WWII. The first screenshots are joined by a whole bunch of additional info and pre-order gubbins, along with a November 3, 2017 release date.
There’s been an overwhelming number of leaks lately seeming to confirm Call of Duty: WW2 is very much a thing, as Activision looks to take the series back to its historical roots. I would hazard a guess Activision threw more than a passing glance over Battlefield 1’s way, hitting the reset button on its bestselling shooter franchise that had kind of reached its theoretical limit when we were fighting on one of Jupiter’s moons. We should know for sure soon though, with the official Call of Duty: WWII reveal expected to take place at some point this very weekend.
