For the start of Call of Duty: WWII‘s week of campaign-focused reveals, a new story trailer depicts a narrative that’s more about the friend at your side than the enemy at your front.
Players will take on most of WWII‘s story campaign as Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, part of America’s First Infantry Division on the European Front. The story will take players through a variety of historic encounters, like D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge, but these skirmishes may only serve as steps toward a more personal goal. What starts as a push into Europe becomes a rescue mission, as the player’s squad makes their own mission to get back a fellow solider from the German war machine.
The story trailer is the first of several campaign content reveals planned for this week. The content tease posted to the game’s Twitter account last week suggests that tomorrow’s reveal will further break down the members of the players’ squad.
Based on the trailer, it would appear that WWII‘s adventure could take place exclusively in Europe, unlike previous Call of Duty games set in World War II that explored other theaters of the war. This won’t be WWII‘s only divergence from series’ staples, as regenerating health will also be rotated out for a squad support and health pack system.
Call of Duty: WWII launches November 3rd on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
