In a change to recent Call of Duty titles in the series, the upcoming Call of Duty WW2 takes the franchise back to its roots following Infinite Warfare, the Sci-fi FPS game that Activision claims didn’t resonate with gamers.

So, what can we expect from Call of Duty WW2? Thanks to leaked marketing material, we know that you’ll join battles in iconic locations from throughout World War 2, starting on D-Day in Normandy before battling your way across Europe to destroy the German War Machine.

There’s also a mention of co-operative gameplay separate from both the main campaign and multiplayer, although details are scarce. Check out our rumour hub for the latest Call of Duty WW2 rumours.
