NEW Call of Duty World War 2 details have been revealed, including the WW2 storyline, but no confirmation on if Nintendo Switch will be among the platforms it’s released on.
Call of Duty WW2 was announced by Activision earlier this week, giving only a hint of what is set to be revealed later this month.
Fans were told that they would have to watch the official livestream on April 26, at 6pm BST, to find out the full details of what the new title would include.
However, a big leak has hit the internet this weekend, confirming a lot about the Call of Duty World War 2 setting, as well as how the storyline will progress.
The new details come from alleged marketing material, revealing more on how the new COD title will start.
“Land in Normandy on D-Day and battle across Europe through iconic locations in history’s most monumental war,” reads a line from the game description.
“Experience classic Call of Duty combat, the bonds of camaraderie, and the unforgiving nature of war against a global power throwing the world into tyranny.”
Call of Duty WW2 will also include “many of World War II’s most iconic locations.”
“Players will also enjoy exciting new ways to interact and socialize with their friends and the Call of Duty community,” states the alleged marketing material.
Call of Duty WW2 will also allow players to join up with friends via the game’s co-op story options.
Fans who pre order can also look forward to enjoying a private beta before the game is released, although details surrounding platforms have not been revealed.
The leaked information unfortunately does not say if the new Call of Duty World War 2 experience will be available on Nintendo Switch.
While it’s a given that it will arrive on PS4, Xbox One and PC, there are still big question marks over whether the new hybrid console will get a version.
While the Nintendo Switch isn’t as powerful as either the PS4 or Xbox One, Activision have released lower-specced versions of their titles in the past.
Both Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3 were available on Xbox 360 and PS3, although Infinite Warfare did skip last-gen platforms.
Call of Duty: WW2 will bring the series back to World War II after nearly ten years, with Sledgehammer Games the team working on the development.
In a new message posted on Twitter, chief operating and development officer of Sledgehammer Games, Michael Condrey, teased more about the Call of Duty WW2 release date.
“The last hour at the studio has been amazing to finally share with fans what we’re bringing, come November,” he said.
“It’s been a long time coming and we’ve been on research for the last two and half years, traveling all over Europe and the world, to research World War 2 to get this game right for fans.”
