Call of Duty: WWII story trailer sheds light on upcoming campaign

Activision has finally given us a proper look at the narrative aspects of Call of Duty: WWII, kicking off a week of intended intel drops relating specifically to the upcoming shooter’s single-player campaign. With the painful memory of that fateful Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer fail fiasco still burning bright, there’s a lot riding on each new bit of footage revealed as we head towards a 3 November release, and this story trailer doesn’t fail to impress (assuming you’re into snow, death and the general misery of the Second World War).

Call of Duty: WWII puts players in the role of US Infantryman Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, with a narrative leading from the beaches of Normandy and working through the iconic moments of the Allies’ advance to Germany (and – spoiler alert! – eventual victory).

There’s ground to be made up here for this long-running franchise – Battlefield 1 surprised most of us by having a single-player campaign actually worth bothering with, so naturally Sledgehammer Games has been tasked to do the same. Hence the highlight reel of Band Of Brothers-esque, courage-under-fire, machine gun machismo.
