The time is nearly upon the world, for the war to start all over again for a generation. The roots have been unearthed and the call will be answered, Call of Duty has returned to World War 2. Not only have we had numerous beta's and trailers highlighting the fact that this return is swiftly incoming, we have 2 trailers reminding us of the social side of gaming.
I feel Activision and Sledgehammer Games are feeling the pressure of returning to the genre that made the series so successful. The original Call of Duty games on PC knocked off the then leaders of war games Medal of Honor off the top spot. Call of Duty then pursued a futuristic direction, but if Battlefield 1 is anything to go by, the market has changed.
So here is the multiplayer reveal for Call of Duty WWII that features all manner of weaponry, vehicles and of course, some bloody trench shovel warfare (it was bows a couple years ago, now is the age of the shovel).
It is almost upon us, the second coming of DLC for Infinite Warfare and this time it comes with the title "Continuum" and contains 4 new multiplayer maps. The new maps very much appear to stick with the futuristic aesthetic that the rest of the game was originally panned for, though since the games release this setting has been less of an issue.
The latest batch of maps are being released for the 2007 title Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, yes you read that right. Not only did you have to buy the game you didn't want to get Modern Warfare, you are now still having to buy all the map packs because they would not release them all at the games re-launch.
So if you feel you have not given Activision enough of your money between the yearly iterations of Call of Duty and the ever money hungry monster that is Destiny then go ahead and continue to fund their bottomless pockets. I will give credit where credit is due, Call of Duty continues to be one of the biggest franchises in gaming to date, so after years of clockwork precise releases the company knows exactly what they are doing.
Call of Duty has been a Goliath of a title, it has been rampaging it's way through a lot of competition in the FPS category for many years ... and usually comes out on top. Though with the next instalment of COD due out in less than a month, it is interesting to see the support for the current game still rolling out.
The DLC pack titled Salvation for Black Ops 3 appears to be plentiful with multiplayer map packs and the final chapter in the Zombies saga titled Revelations. Although the DLC has been exclusive to the PlayStation owners for 30 days, Xbox One (and PC) owners can now get their hands on the most interesting and creative looking updates to the franchise in a long time.
