The next Call of Duty title is heading back to its roots, basing the game within World War II. This is quite a departure as the franchise has focused on Modern Warfare and even future, or Advanced Warfare, of late with all the latest tech and weaponry available to today’s and tomorrow’s forces over the past decade. In a celebration of returning to its roots, Activision is delivering live action trailers all about reliving the fun of those earlier WWII titles with the friends you used to play with all those many years ago. Enter the live action trailer for Call of Duty: WWII entitled “Reassemble”.
The trailer is all about now grown adults reforming their old team. While all the members have moved on to new things, the mere mention of getting back into the Call of Duty: WWII game is enough for all of them to jump at the chance to get the gang back together for some COD action. There are three versions of the trailer, each focusing on a different group of friends getting back together due to the prospect of returning to WWII action in a COD game.
“Call of Duty: WWII is a return to the boots on the ground gameplay and camaraderie of playing Call of Duty together with your friends. The enthusiasm and anticipation for this year’s game is incredible and speaks to the passion of our fans around the world,” said Tim Ellis, CMO, Activision. “‘Reassemble!’ spans the globe in a series of films about gamers, across all walks of life, getting their squads together with one mission – to play Call of Duty.”
The trailers are part of a marketing campaign Activision has worked on with creative agency 72andSunny. They are leading up to the game’s release on November 3, 2017. Call of Duty: WWII will be available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. While the title will return to WWII it will also return to other fan-favorite modes such as Campaign, Multiplayer and Nazi Zombies.
