Sledgehammer Games hosted a "Making of #Call of Duty" live stream on May 23 wherein some aspects of "#Call Of Duty: WWII" were detailed. The creators of the game are hoping that its features will bring back gamers who have fallen out of love with the game.

Scenes in the game

In the said live stream video, senior creative director Bret Robbins answered questions about what the gamers can expect when it debuts in November. According to Robbins, scenes from The #Battle of the Bulge will be included since it is one of the most significant battles during the war. There will be scenes that are reminiscent of the combat experiences of the last world war and in the U.S.

Gamers will see landing at Omaha Beach during the Normandy invasion and the battle of the Hurtgen Forest in Germany. It is also the aim of the game developers to show what war looks like. Because of that, there will be bloody scenes in "Call of Duty: WWII." The team also promised captivating and cinematic campaign as it brings back the Nazi zombies and other familiar gritty settings from "Call of Duty."

Playable characters

When asked about playable Axis characters in the single-player campaign, the developers said that they will feature a diverse and multinational cast but there will be no playable Axis characters. As for the multiplayer mode, they did not reveal details about it yet but they only confirmed that players can fight as German soldiers. Robbins said that they will leave that a mystery for now.

On the other hand, Sledgehammer co-founder Glen Schofield said that there is humanity in the game since they don't want to portray people as monsters. He added that there will be a scene wherein a German soldier helps the player and there will be a mission to rescue a German family.

Another thing that they will feature in the game is women combatants. Activision said that adding women in "Call of Duty: WWII" is historically accurate with the French resistance having many female fighters. Women will be playable in some sections of the campaign. There will also be female soldiers and characters in the multiplayer and Zombies mode.

The campaign will have more gore which is important to show what World War 2 was really like. The developers also refused to comment if health regeneration will be available in the game.

The next major details about "Call of Duty: WWII" will be released at E3 on June 13-15. They will talk more about the multiplayer mode and the newfangled social aspects of the game. "Call of Duty: WWII" is set to be released on November 3 and it can be pre-ordered on Steam for $59.99.
