Call of Duty: WWII

The company which makes the best-selling Call of Duty video games series has unveiled the multiplayer gameplay trailer for its latest release, set in World War Two.

The first-person shooter game by publisher Activision will be set in the middle of the conflict and be called 'Call of Duty: WWII'.

The trailer showcased some of the scenarios and areas in which players will be fighting as part of the multiplayer game.

Locations featured include Normandy, France; the Ardennes Forest, Belgium; and Aachen, Germany.

This multiplayer trailer was showcased at Sony's E3 2017 press conference in Los Angeles, where they also announced the date the private beta for PS4 would be released - on August 25.

It comes hot on the heels of the game's first trailer, which showed us the single player story mode.

That opened with iconic scenes of the D-Day landings, and Churchill's words echo throughout. 

Your character dodges German bullets as he runs up the beach and comrades fall around him. 

So what's the story?

You are Private Ronald 'Red' Daniels - sent to storm the beaches on D-Day and push through towards Germany.

Call of Duty: WWII

The game is set completely in the European theatre between 1944 and 1945, with players also fighting in the forest of Ardennes in the Battle of the Bulge.

The developers, Sledgehammer, have been keen to stress that this game will focus more on the relationships between soldiers on the frontline. 

So players find themselves meeting up with members of the British Army and French Resistance.

The original Call of Duty games were set in World War II but as times and tastes changed they moved away from the setting.

However, with a new generation of consoles and a new generation of gamers Activision and developers Sledgehammer have decided to revisit it. 

The success of EA's Battlefield 1 has shown that first-person shooters based in a real world setting can still more than hold their own.

Call of Duty: WWII

The video game series has recently focused on producing games set in futuristic fictional conflicts.

The company's previous release, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, received a mixed critical reception and missed the company's sales expectations.

Watch the full Call of Duty: WWII trailer below... a warning, it does contain some strong language and violence...
