As is tradition, because that’s how things work on the internet, promo materials for Call of Duty: WWII have dribbled out ahead of the game’s official reveal on 26 April, confirming that the game has a co-op mode of some sort and also – just in case anybody didn’t already know – features soldiers with guns. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
First reported by Call of Duty news site CharlieIntel, the game’s promo materials also announce a release date on Friday 3 November, with access to a preceding beta for pre-orders. The game’s description doesn’t have much to go on, but the part about a co-op mode with a “new and original story” is intriguing:

Land in Normandy on D-Day and battle across Europe through iconic locations in history’s most monumental war.

Meanwhile, the official Call of Duty website accidentally dropped some screenshots that, much like the description above, are more or less exactly what you’d expect. Soldiers with guns, plus a bonus thousand-yard stare.
