The newest edition of the popular first-person shooter, Call of Duty: WWII, came out Friday morning, after a lot of anticipation from gamers.

This excitement was well deserved from the gaming world, with Activision ditching the futuristic trends of the last few games to implement regular gameplay found in the older games.

The decision to bring back the classic features and make more realistic gameplay with this edition has the Call of Duty franchise back on top of the gaming world.

Even the campaign mode has seen vast improvement.

Playing as Ronald “Red” Daniels, a United States Army private, the player goes through several pivotal battles from World War II, including D-Day and the liberation of Paris from German control.

As the player gets more kills, he or she works towards gaining a reward from fellow soldiers, including extra ammo, grenades, and first-aid kits.

Elsewhere, the most popular mode, multiplayer, has seen an immense improvement from the last couple editions. Activision even went out of its way to create a new game mode, War.

War is an objective-based game mode, with each team taking turns defending its fort or equipment and attacking enemy objectives to progress through the steps needed to win.

This has been a great addition to the game, with War offering a whole new experience that Call of Duty has never seen and can expand on.

Multiplayer is back to the high levels it used to be with classic modes like Team Deathmatch and Domination combined with fun, objective0based games like War and Gridiron.

There is also another installation of Zombies in this game, with Nazi Zombies pitting up to four players against several types of zombies. The Zombies are much creepier than usual, with dark lighting and even some jump scares providing a more entertaining experience.

Overall, Call of Duty WWII is a must-have for fans of the older games and realistic first person shooters. The days of futuristic nonsense are gone for good.
