Each year Call of Duty publisher Activision puts together a fun live-action trailer, and apparently the serious subject matter of World War II isn’t going to buck tradition. Today, they released a new live-action trailer for Call of Duty: WWII. The first-person shooter looks to be a return to the series’ roots, as it’s all about “boots on the ground” and more traditional gameplay. Recent titles, such as Black Ops III and Infinite Warfare, featured more of a focus on futuristic tech and mobility.
Here’s the official description of the live-action Call of Duty: WWII trailer (courtesy of publisher Activision):
Call of Duty is returning to WWII, which can only mean one thing: it’s time to get your squad back together. Follow a team as they gather their friends for the most epic battle yet. Featuring “Figure It Out” by Royal Blood.

Here’s more on the story, courtesy of Sledgehammer Games:
Call of Duty: WWII tells the story of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, a young recruit in the U.S. First Infantry Division who experiences combat for the first time on D-Day, one of the largest amphibious assaults in history. After surviving the beaches of Normandy, Red and his squad will fight their way across Europe, engaging the enemy in iconic battle locations such as the Hürtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge, as they make their way into Germany. The journey begins on November 3.
Call of Duty: WWII releases on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
