Call of Duty


 

Another year, another Call of Duty live-action trailer. This time, though, the trailer has more to do with tracking down friends to play the game with than anything directly related to the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII.

Seemingly catering to those fans whose interest in the Call of Duty series has waned since it strayed away from its historical settings, WWII‘s live-action trailer involves a group of friends reconnecting over a revitalized desire to fight on the battlefields of World War II.

Aside from the trailer’s curious omission of anything action-oriented or WWII-related, there are two additional oddities fans might notice. First off, the trailer doesn’t feature anyone particularly famous (the chip-eating guy, Steve Talley, was in an American Pie spin-off, but that’s about all we could pull out). This is unusual for Call of Duty live-action trailers, as they are known for locking down such talent as Michael B. Jordan and Danny McBride. Secondly, the full squad count by the end of the trailer clocks in at a perplexing eight members, which is two too many for a standard multiplayer team, and one too few for a team in Ground War.

Call of Duty: WWII is launching November 3rd on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. If the World War II setting isn’t your cup of tea, one Call of Duty voice actor recently gave us a none-too-subtle tease that Call of Duty: Black Ops IV would be coming in 2018.

Call of Duty: WWII live-action trailer is a dramatic change from years past

This year's live-action Call of Duty trailer is surprisingly lacking in action.
