Call of Duty WW2 trailer, release date and beta REVEALED with new game images
Activision revealed Call of Duty: WW2 on Friday and while they've been fairly light on details we do know that developers Sledgehammer Games will be revealing all next week for a special livestream, taking place on the 26th April at 6PM BST.
However, as with most big releases these days, plenty of details are already starting to leak, including the game's first trailer, which you can watch above.
This teaser is appearing rolling out across both YouTube and Instagram as sponsored content to help promote the worldwide reveal of Call of Duty: WW2 next week.
While it might show nothing more than some waves going up and down along with another reminder of the game's new logo and reveal date, the sounds are quite telling.
There's plenty of gunfire and the sound of heavy artillery shelling, which in a game set in WW2 can only mean that the game will recreate something close to the Normandy beach landings.
We don't even need to guess because more leaked promotional material has all but confirmed Normandy as a location along with several more telling details.
This new marketing material comes from Australia and provides fans with plenty of details about the games, a release date and news of a "private beta"
"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," reads the leaked marketing materials.
"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 against a global power throwing the world into tyranny."
The information also revealed that the game will be released on November 3, 2017 and that there will be a “PRIVATE BETA” for people who preorder Call of Duty: WWII.
More specific details about the main campaign were also revealed, which read:
"Call of Duty: WWII tells the story of an unbreakable brotherhood of common men fighting to preserve freedom in a world on the brink of tyranny."
"Players enlist in a gritty intense journey through the battlegrounds of war."
"The campaign features bold, lifelike visuals with the kind of blockbuster cinematic authenticity that only Call of Duty can deliver."
And like any Call of Duty, it wouldn't be complete without multiplayer, but on top of the usual Multiplayer mode, WW2 looks to be mixing it up with a new co-operative mode.
Here's some more info from the leak:
Multiplayer Description: Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer engages players grounded, fast-paced combat across 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.
High-Octane Co-Operative: Call of Duty: WWII’s co-operative mode unleashes a new and original story. Play with your friends in this next-level standalone game experience full of unexpected, adrenaline-pumping moments.
The possibility of a new co-operative mode and original story has got a lot of fans excited, but naturally, there's also a few doubters who are hoping it's not a return to the games "Spec Ops" mode seen in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
The one thing missing from the many leaked marketing materials so far has been any news of the game coming to Nintendo Switch.
There have been some suggestions that Activision could release a lower spec version of Call of Duty: WW2 for Nintendo Switch in the same way that past CoD games were released on legacy consoles such as the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Given the success of the Nintendo Switch, it would make sense for Activision to capitalise on the booming market, in much the same way as EA intend to do with their next FIFA 18 game.
Likewise, it's worth noting that Activision has already thrown their hat in with the Nintendo Switch with the more recent port of Skylanders Imaginators to the new handheld console.
The biggest argument against a Switch version of the game is the fact that Activision may have already decided against releasing these stripped back titles, to begin with.
Despite Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3 both offering a release on Xbox 360 and PS3 in past years, Infinite Warfare bucked the trend and only released on PS4 and Xbox One.
And based on retail listings so far, we can only assume that Activision is planning to skip the Switch and these legacy consoles entirely.
No doubt there will be plenty more details about Call of Duty WW2 as we edge towards the game's full reveal next week, so stay tuned for more details as they come in.

Let's hope we will all go nuts as the game boss said earlier about this new installment.
