'Call of Duty' - Screens

Call of Duty delivers the gritty realism and cinematic intensity of WWII's most epic battlefield moments - from the perspective of citizen soldiers and unsung heroes representing an alliance of countries, who together helped shape the course of modern history.

The first title in the Call of Duty series is a gritty, authentic World War II action game for the PC that is being developed by Infinity Ward, a newly formed studio that includes 22 of the individuals who previously developed Medal of Honor: Allied Assault(TM). Players assume the role of different characters from multiple sides of the Allied forces and experience the bonding and brutality of war as they fight along side their squad mates through a variety of missions, including battlefield assaults, search and rescue, stealth, sabotage, vehicle chases and tank battles. Heeding the call of duty, gamers step into the boots of a U.S. paratrooper, a British commando and a Russian infantryman as they take on the Nazi War machine through pivotal World War II battles and authentic military campaigns. The title is slated for release later this year and has not yet been rated by the ESRB.

"The Call of Duty brand will deliver the most authentic, intense and realistic battlefield experience from the perspective of multiple soldiers battling on the frontlines," states Dusty Welch, vice president of global brand management, Activision, Inc. "No one soldier, or even one country, single-handedly wins wars, but rather wars are won through the collective efforts, teamwork and bonds of everyday citizen soldiers from an alliance of nationalities who all heed their call of duty. It's the camaraderie of common soldiers coupled with authentic cinematic gameplay that will define the Call of Duty series."

"We're thrilled to partner with Activision on pioneering the Call of Duty brand," said Grant Collier, president of Infinity Ward, Inc. "Infinity Ward's mission is to make a game that is as historically accurate and realistic as possible, that will bring a new level of cinematic action to the genre. We are constantly researching locales, time periods, weapons and vehicles in order to immerse players in the harsh realities of World War II. When gamers get their hands on Call of Duty, they will experience gripping battle sequences, ultra realistic environments, and in-the-trenches, non-stop gameplay that will blow them away."
