Call of Duty returns to the greatest military conflict in history and where the franchise first began, World War II, letting players enlist in an unforgettable journey of brotherhood across the European theatre in a mission vital to the success of the Allied powers.

The all-new Call of Duty delivers gritty realism, authenticity and cinematic intensity on an epic scale.  In addition to the game’s boots-on-the-ground combat, Multiplayer offers a host of new mode, system and gameplay innovations across iconic map locations; while an all-new Nazi Zombies Cooperative mode unleashes a startling, new storyline and adrenaline filled experience. 

Call of Duty: WWII has been a journey of inspiration and passion for everyone at Sledgehammer Games. The team is dedicated to delivering on the intense nature of war that focuses on the heroism and sacrifice of soldiers in WWII. Our rich narrative driven, action-packed campaign, and engaging and innovative multiplayer experience immerse players into the boots of a soldier fighting for freedom in a world on the brink of tyranny.  And, our co-operative mode delivers a unique storyline that’s an all-new take on Nazi Zombies that we think fans are going to love,” said Michael Condrey, Studio Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games. 

Call of Duty: WWII takes the franchise back to its roots in a bold cinematic experience that captures the unforgettable heroism of the soldiers who fought together in a war that changed the world forever.  Activision’s gripping new title is an honest portrayal of World War II from the perspective of the famed 1st Infantry Division, with an ensemble cast of global and diverse characters. Through stunning visuals and intense audio, players storm the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, march across France to liberate Paris and ultimately push forward into Germany in some of the most monumental battles of all-time.

Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer combat immerses players in grounded, fast-paced action featuring an arsenal of authentic weapons and equipment, set in some of the most iconic locations in World War II’s European theatre.  Multiplayer also delivers a new approach to character and create-a-class through Divisions, War, an all-new narrative multiplayer mode of play, and Headquarters, a first of its kind for the Call of Duty social community, designed for players to interact and socialise with friends.  The definitive World War II next generation experience also introduces Nazi Zombies, an all-new cooperative mode featuring a unique standalone storyline set during World War II that’s full of unexpected, adrenaline-pumping action.

Break out the sunscreen and shades for this community event, because Sledgehammer Games is going to make your summer playcation one to remember from now through August 28.

The Call of Duty: WWII Days of Summer community event is now underway until August 28th. Featuring a new sandbox map, new weapons, WWII fighter planes, a new take on Nazi Zombies and more - there's something here for everyone as they beat the summer heat.

Remember making sand castles and playing with those little green army men? In Call of Duty: WWII’s latest map, you’ll experience that all over again from an entirely new perspective.

Sandbox is available first on PlayStation 4, and this map shrinks players down to the size of plastic soldiers and puts them into a fun-filled beachside battleground. And apparently, our favorite Quartermaster likes to spend his downtime in the sand, because you’ll find that Captain Butcher has decided to set up camp at the edge of this map and will use a magnifying glass to heat things up during matches.

Call of Duty: WWII already features Multiplayer aerial combat through the War Mode mission Operation Husky, which is a part of The War Machine DLC Pack.  As part of Days of Summer, all players will be able to take flight in WWII fighters when they jump into Dogfighting.

In Dogfighting, you and your team will take flight over Egyptian pyramids and across mountain ranges while trying to fend off enemy pilots. Shoot down enough bogeys, and you’ll be able to earn Flak Guns that can clear the skies and help secure air supremacy.

As if your armory wasn’t already packed to the gills, Captain Butcher has brought in a trio of guns that will bring some heat to the battlefield.

The Ribeyrolles is a French prototype submachine gun with a wicked design and a scorching amount of damage output.

Slow in fire rate but big on firepower, the Soviet-made rifle Automaton packs a heavy punch for any combat situation.

Rounding out the new weapons is the legendary 3-Line Rifle, a weapon that snipers in this community know as a deadly one-shot machine.

Players who have worked hard to reach Master Prestige in Call of Duty: WWII will have a new way to show off their hard-earned achievement.

Days of Summer will introduce brand new uniforms that will be given out to players who have reached milestone levels between and including levels 100 and 1000. How can you level up to the triple and quadruple digits? Simply hit tenth prestige and keep trucking past level 55 to start on your road to Master Prestige.

Multiplayer is not the only mode where you’ll have some fun in the sun during Days of Summer.

Nazi Zombies will introduce blazing fast Sizzlers and beefy Drowned Zombies into the cast of undead characters, as well as some exclusive orders that will give out Supply Drops and unique Uniforms.

Divide and Conquer the Latest Community Challenge

There is no better time to re-explore the five original Divisions than in the latest Community Challenge.

Each tier of the challenge will task you and the community to earn 160 million kills with each Division – 800 million in total. Here’s what Division you need to use for each stage of the Days of Summer Community Challenge:

  • Tier 1: Infantry Division
  • Tier 2: Armored Division
  • Tier 3: Mountain Division
  • Tier 4: Airborne Division
  • Tier 5: Expeditionary Division

Upon completion of each tier, every participant will get some summertime themed goodies ranging from a sweet boating hat to a Heroic Sawed-Off Shotgun variant.

In addition to all of this radical limited-time content, there are hundreds of new personalization options like Helmets, Face Camo and Weapon Charms to collect. Plus, you’ll be raking in experience points like crazy with all of the Double XP opportunities available during Days of Summer.
