Although Call of Duty: WW2 has now been officially confirmed by publisher Activision, there are still many questions surrounding the upcoming title that have yet to be answered. However, already some bits of information are getting leaked, and so fans of the FPS franchise are able to put together at least a vague picture of what to expect from the game. One leak that has been of interest to gamers has been the news that the title will include a new co-operative mode.
News of this co-op mode in Call of Duty: WW2 comes via a leaked advertisement for the game. According to this leak, the co-operative part of Call of Duty: WW2 “unleashes a new and original story,” and will consist of a “next-level standalone game experience full of unexpected, adrenaline-pumping moments.”
Exactly what this means remains to be seen, and will no doubt be confirmed by Activision or developer Sledgehammer Games soon. However, a standalone co-op mode with a narrative all of its own would certainly be a welcome addition for many gamers, with most co-op experiences consisting of either one-off missions or the ability to add a second player into the single player campaign.
This was far from the only tidbit of information revealed because of this advertisement, either. As well as a potential release date of November 3, 2017, the leak also gave up a few details about Call of Duty: WW2‘s campaign and multiplayer. The game’s campaign will return players to the D-Day landings at Normandy, for instance, while the multiplayer will give players the option of multiple well-known sites from World War 2.
Indeed, Call of Duty: WW2 has already been rife with leaks, with details about the game, including artwork, coming far before Activision had discussed it. Since the game was confirmed by Activision, however, gamers have already been able to get an accidental look at screenshots of Call of Duty: WW2‘s campaign, so the publisher will perhaps be looking to tighten up ship when it comes to information getting out.
It’s worth noting, of course, that these details have not been confirmed by Activision or Sledgehammer Games as of yet. However, with a livestream for the reveal set for Wednesday, April 26, it will hopefully not be long before fans of the franchise wanting to know more get some of the answers they crave.
Call of Duty: WW2 has an unconfirmed release date of November 3, 2017, with a reveal livestream set for April 26, 2017.
