The Call of Duty franchise is one of the most-loved gaming franchises in the world. It started off with games based on the World War II settings, and slowly moved forward to the modern era of warfare and battles with each progressive game.

In 2016, Activision, the studio behind the Call of Duty games, released Infinite Warfare, based on a futuristic setting. However, fans of the series demanded that the franchise go back to its roots and release a game based on World War II. Heeding the requests, the studio finally decided to launch Call of Duty: WWII this year.

At Sony's recent E3 presentation, Call of Duty: WWII's multiplayer was teased through a two and a half-minute long video, which detailed the chaotic and brutal online multiplayer mode for the game.

The trailer is filled with violence and gunfight, which is to be expected in a Call of Duty game. However, it also details the varied environments and possible maps in which the multiplayer matches will take place.

Some of the maps showed off include Normandy, the Ardennes Forest of France, Aachen in Germany, and Belgium. Some maps will be based on snowy terrain, while others revealed deserted villages

The trailer shows soldiers and fellow comrades running into the infamous trenches, close quarter combat, explosions, artillery fire raining down on the squad, and also details some of the guns that the game will feature.

Activision revealed that in Call of Duty: WWII players will be able to relive the D-Day when the protagonist lands on Normandy Beach as part of the first Infantry Division. They will then proceed to fight in other iconic locations and maps.

'Call of Duty: WWII' To Bring Back Divisions System?

Earlier, in a PlayStation blog post, Activision officials revealed that the create-a-class setup would be ditched and the Divisions system of multiplayer customization would be brought back. In create-a-class, players were given the freedom to customize their character with any weapon and load out they wished.

However, with the Divisions system, the players have to select a specific predesigned class from five available Divisions. Each of these divisions will have distinct weapon skills, combat training, and division training.

Players will also be able to play as women characters in multiplayer, a decision which has come under some scrutiny from certain section of fans. Activision also revealed that the game would feature the popular "Zombies mode" from the previous titles in the franchise.

Call of Duty: WWII is set to hit the shelves on November 3 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Players can preorder the game, which will also allow them access to the private beta scheduled for the title.
