During Sony’s E3 press conference, a new Call of Duty: WWII trailer was unveiled. From warfare in rubble-filled streets to the eastern front to battles at sea and bombers being shelled by anti-aircraft guns, the trailer shows it all. It was also announced that the beta for Call of Duty: WWII kicks off on August 25 at 10AM PT. It ends on August 28th at the same time and will be followed by a second weekend. The next round of the multiplayer beta arrives on September 1 for both PS4 and Xbox One.
This ends on September 5 at 10AM PT and will be the last chance to play the game before the final launch. Last but not least we learned about 3 multiplayer game modes:
- Headquarters - The Headquarters area seems to be a Destiny-style social area that lets you show off your various levels of prestige and awards.
- Divisions - You can choose from a variety of these Divisions, apparently, including both Infantry and Armored Divisions. What those actually are, however, isn't clear - although Armored Division certainly suggest vehicles will play an important part.
- War Mode - large-scale, immersive battles replicating real conflicts themselves from the war. Gameplay is "team-driven" and split between Axis and Allies, based around strategic objectives.
Call of Duty: WWII releases on November 3 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
