We watched some soldiers as they watched some soldiers opening a loot crate in Call of Duty

The new Call of Duty is out, and this time it’s War 2. Sledgehammer Games, not content with turning the beaches of Normandy into a “Headquarters” where players can run around like silent psychopaths, have introduced a system of loot crates in COD: WWII whereby you can see all the items your fellow infantrymen pull out of their goody boxes. Super. One strange mission, Eurogamer…

Call Of Duty fights ’em on the beaches once again today

All of this has happened before, and all of this will happen again. You can take your modern wars and future wars and shove 'em where the Soap don't shine, because Call of Duty has, of today, gone back to the one-time future of first-person shooters: World War II. Call of Duty: WW2 is out now, y'see. But is this latter-day noisenik shoutyman CoD with…

Steam Charts: Your Reason To Go On

Some have doubted the power of the Steam Charts to change people's lives. Those people are dead now. Belief in Steam Charts, RPS's greatest, longest-running, and most industry-revered column, is literally the only thing keeping you alive right now. Don't be a dead one. Love us. LOVE US.

Call of Duty: WW2 open beta starts preloading

After larking around in the present and future, Call of Duty this year returns to the war that kicked the series off, wrapping modern CoD in the spats and mud of the Second World War. How has that worked out? Well, you can see for yourself this weekend in the free PC open beta test for Call of Duty: WW2 [official site]. The test will…

Call of Duty: WW2 open beta hits PC on September 29th

Call of Duty [official site] is returning to its roots. No more orbital adventures and digital warfare, and little chance that the series will complete its full evolution into a sort of first-person Command & Conquer: Red Alert. Instead, the billboards that decorated E3 this year had a solemn air about them. "This," they wanted us to know, "is serious business." We'll have to wait…

Call of Duty: WW2’s HQ social space looks a right lark

I welcome spaces to goof off in serious competitive games. On the Plunkbat loading runway, you'll find me creeping along wonkily as I lean and wobble or launching myself into the air with the plane wing glitch. In Natural Selection's ready room, you bet I'm climbing onto heads. And in Call of Duty: WW2 [official site], oh boy, the 'Headquarters' social space looks great fun.…

Call of Duty: WW2 recruits Doctor Who for Nazi Zombies

Actors including David Tennant (Ian Whom PhD), Elodie Yung (Electro), Katheryn Winnick (Ribs), Ving Rhames (Quentin Tarantino's A True Story), and Udo Kier (Disturbia) are lending their voices to characters in the cooperative Nazi Zombies mode of Call of Duty: WW2 [official site], Activision announce. I'm sure they're fine actors but the next CoD: Infinite Warfare zombie DLC has Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and…

Feature: Ev3rying Ev3r

Every PC game announced or trailered at E3 2017

Each year E3 rolls around like a giant evil worm, crushing all that's good and pure. BUT that worm also announces lots of exciting gaming news as it wreaks its carnage upon the Earth. Here we have gathered every announcement, reveal, and exciting new trailer that emerged from the barrage of screamed press conferences over the last few days. And lots of it looks rather…

Mens shoot mens in fresh Call of Duty: WWII trailer

We’ve already had some Nazi shooting with Wolfenstein 2 this E3, so why not shoot some more? Sony have shown off some more Call of Duty: WWII [official site] footage. This time it’s what multiplayer will look like (er, once all the names hovering above your friends and enemies are stripped away and it's recorded from many other cinematic angles, that is) along with all…

Feature: "War is a fun hell"

Call of Duty is unlikely to get WWII “right”

“Those who do not learn from from history, are doomed to make another World War II videogame.” A famous saying, and one we all know well. So when Activision hosted a live presentation for the reveal trailer of their latest shooter, Call of Duty: WWII [official site], I watched and felt nothing but a tired wave of low-burning resentment for everyone involved. During this presentation…

Call of Duty: WW2 trailer shows off, y’know, WW2 stuff

A month after word of its existence leaked, today we have our first peek at Call of Duty: WW2 [official site]. At a livestreamed mega-reveal-o-world-first-a-exclusive-y-shoot-o-bang-a-blowout, developers Sledgehammer Games and publishers Activision have shown the first trailer. It looks pretty fun! Has all those scenes from the WW2 movies. Lots of explosions and shouting. The event is still ongoing but seems mostly to consist of men…

Call of Duty: WW2 is real, obvs

Cor blimey, love a duck, and stone the crows: Activision have announced that the next Call of Duty game will be Call of Duty: WWII [official site]. Their official announcement says about as much as the leak which gave this away four weeks ago. Another supposed leak has sprung with unconfirmed babbling about unsurprising things like D-Day and a co-op mode. But what's most important…

Activision plan for ‘many years’ of Call of Duty movies

Activision Blizzard Studios are planning for potentially years of Call of Duty movies, drawing inspiration from the interwoven Marvel Cinematic Universe. Activision reckon that Call of Duty could carry a series, jumping between the first-person shooter's sub-brands for different perspectives on war. Chinny reckon.

Feature: Do mention the war

Editorial: It’s great news that Call Of Duty is returning to World War 2

If the rumours are true, and they most likely are, this year we'll be seeing Call Of Duty: WWII. People have reacted with concern, but I'm here to argue it's the best possible news. There was a time when learning a game was set in World War II was deserving of the heaviest of sighs. Not only did it mean that it would be one…

Rumour! Call of Duty: WW2 is real, and a real bad name

Rumours of Call of Duty's return to World War 2 have circulated since, well, since Activision's mega-hit FPS series left it almost a decade ago. This time it's really for really real, folks including our chums at Eurogamer say. Whispers, rumours, and supposedly leaked artwork say this year's game will bear the rubbish name Call of Duty: WWII. Presumably this would mean a sad farewell…
