Call of Duty® returns to its roots with Call of Duty®: WWII—a breathtaking experience that redefines World War II for a new gaming generation. Land in Normandy on D-Day and battle across Europe through iconic locations in history’s most monumental war. Experience classic Call of Duty combat, the bonds of camaraderie, and the unforgiving nature of war.
Call of Duty: WWII is a 2017 first-person shooter video game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. It was released worldwide on November 3, 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
While Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Infinite Warfare and took the shooter franchise into modern day times, WWII goes straight back in time. The new game is totally free to download and install starting now.
That means anyone who missed playing the game the first time around (it originally launched back in 2017) can do so right now. Gamers will also get access to WWII’s Nazi Zombies game mode.
World War II was one of the best-selling games of 2017. It puts you in the shoes of a foot soldier marching across Europe in the final months of the War in Europe.
You also get multiplayer modes, which are a tad more slowed-down from the hectic Black Ops games and current Modern Warfare games. While many players have moved on to more recent Call of Duty titles, WWII has an active multiplayer fanbase due to its unique differences from other titles.
