Following yesterday’s official reveal of Call of Duty: WW2, the publisher Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games seem intent on capitalizing on the fact that the title’s on the tip on practically every gamer’s tongue by unveiling a brand new merchandise line for the forthcoming World War II-inspired first-person shooter. As it so happens, the companies have already put up a bunch of different pieces of officially licensed merchandise connected to the FPS for purchase in the online store of the franchise’s website.
As seen in the series of images below, aside from the actual release itself, the creators behind Call of Duty: WW2 have also cooked up various items related to the title like a t-shirt with the game’s name branded on the front for $22, a hoodie with the game’s logo emblazoned across the chest for $45, as well as a tee with a pilot design and the slogan “Wings of Victory” selling for $22. Not to mention, Call of Duty: WW2‘s online store is even offering an authentic-looking military field jacket for $45 and an olive green duffel bag for $35.
Of course, should diehard fans of the first-person shooter franchise not be fully satisfied with all that’s being offered in the game’s official merchandise line, Activision and Sledgehammer Games are also set to provide players with a pricier special edition of Call of Duty: WW2. Not only will pre-ordering the “Pro Edition” of the FPS net PlayStation 4 fans the ability to access a private beta on the platform first, but also it will set them up to receive whatever post-launch content is in the works through a season pass.
Taking all of this into consideration, it’s obvious that Activision and Sledgehammer Games are putting a lot of stock in the success of Call of Duty: WW2, especially with the companies already having a slew of merchandise at the ready following the game’s reveal. Naturally, though, only time will tell if the developers’ decision to take the franchise “back to its roots” will prove to be a fruitful venture for the franchise in the long run.
Call of Duty: WW2 is set to release on November 3, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
