What's old is new again as Activision releases Call of Duty: WWII trailer

So the CALL OF DUTY series is doing something bold and new! It's going to be set in World War II! Like, uh, the first games, and...hmmm. Really breaking the mold there, Activision.

Anyway, here's a trailer for the new game, titled CALL OF DUTY: WWII. Let's take a look:

Actually, I think I was being unfair earlier, because despite its seeming lack of originality, I can't deny that the graphics and gameplay look pretty cool! For one, the people no longer look like plastic Ken dolls brought to life by some wicked dark magic, and the combat looks frenetic and fun. It's also nice to see some familiar faces in there as well. 

Admittedly, while the trailer is indeed using the game's graphics engine (thankfully a more common occurrence in game trailers), the trailer is also only going to show us the good stuff. Hopefully there are no bugs, glitches, or other problems that sometimes plague big AAA games pre-DLC. But, as of now, it seems pretty awesome. And I'm not even a fan of the series! Maybe there's just something about WWII and killing Nazis that's refreshing, especially recently...

Anyway, CALL OF DUTY: WWII will be released on consoles and PC November 3rd, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: I wonder if this leads credence to the rumor that the first CALL OF DUTY movie in the cinematic universe will be a World War II film.
