Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a direct sequel to Cod Blops

After fannying about in the future for a few games, Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will bring the subseries back to the past with a direct sequel to 2010's Cod Blops. Treyarch last night gave Cod Blops Cow the ol' reveal-o, with a trailer showing some of this year's hot new war crimes. Along with a singleplayer campaign, the usual multiplayer modes, and…

Call Of Duty: Warzone’s new season bumps squads up to four

War never changes, but the number of people who are allowed to participate occasionally increases. Call Of Duty: Warzone is upping squad sizes to four. You can still queue separately for the version with three, if you like, and new weapons and modes are planned for later on.This is part of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare's Season 3, which means that we've also got a…

Call Of Duty: Warzone, a free new battle royale, is out now

After dabbling with a battle royale mode in last year's Call Of Duty, Activision have finally caught up with 2017's hottest trend and today launched a free-to-play new battle royale. Call Of Duty: Warzone is its name, and shooting lots of people until one team stand triumphant is its game. I'd thought myself done with trying new battle royale games but the idea of one…

Feature: A step back in time

Has Call of Duty: WW2 been improved by its updates?

After so many Warfares of the Modern, Advanced, and Totally Wacky variety, there was something comforting about Call of Duty going back to World War 2. Playing Call of Duty: WW2’s multiplayer mode now, nine months after launch, is like slipping on an old boot — albeit a boot covered in mud, masonry dust, and the blood of tens of millions of people.

Call of Duty: WW2’s Liberty Strike is very loud and dumb

It's very nearly Explosion Day in America, so that means that every online shooter is doing its best to bludgeon us senseless with loud guns and louder outfits. Call of Duty: WW2 is no exception, but accompanying the Liberty Strike event's obligatory and garish red/white/blue-painted weaponry and outfits is a juicy little cherry of daftness on top. While Call of Duty isn't my usual cup of…

Call of Duty: WW2 blasts free multiplayer trial weekend

I don't understand how anyone can believe any first-person shooter series is improved by removing wallrunning and jetpacks, but apparently "historical accuracy" demanded Activision do that with Call of Duty: WW2. What rot! But if you do want to try zippy face-shooting with horrifying screams and no jetpacks, you can play CoD WoWa2's multiplayer for free this weekend. A free trial kicked off last night,…

Call of Duty: WWII gets new maps in Resistance DLC

You know what I love about the winter holidays? Shooting people in various 20th century European locales. If you too enjoy sending small chunks of metal through the air at high velocity towards a fellow human being’s vital organs, perhaps you will like the upcoming DLC for Call of Duty: WWII. It’s called Resistance and has three new multiplayer maps, a new mission for “war…

Feature: 'Uncanny' doesn't cover it

Call of Duty WW2 has solved face-rendering – and it scares me

Videogames' extended voyage through the uncanny valley would go on for at least another couple of decades, I'd presumed until recently. Real, believable people conjured from our graphics cards would surely remain a pipedream for many hardware generations to come. Then I played Call of Duty: WW2, and the first cracks appeared in the walls of reality. All of sudden, videogames can do faces. Amazing…

Call of Duty: WW2 PC patch delayed by server problems

About this time every year, everyone huddles around the open fire roasting chestnuts and singing songs, keenly awaiting the arrival of the first patch for this year's new Call of Duty game. But while consoleers awoke on Friday to find a Call of Duty: WW2 patch hanging in the stocking over their TV, PCnauts have gone without. Are we... on the naughty list? Nah mate,…

Podcast: Call of Duty WWII and Assassin’s Creed Origins

WAR. The men and women of the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, are doing their part, but are you doing yours? We have shown bravery among the bullets and beaches of Call of Duty WWII, with John popping helmets in the "quite good" single player campaign, and Matt hiding in the bloodied crater of multiplayer. I've done sweet foxtrot alpha on the frontlines, so…

Feature: Less mobility, more problems

Call of Duty: WW2 Multiplayer review

Call of Duty WW2 takes the series back to its roots, stripping out the jetpacks and wallrunning from the recent futuristic iterations. As Sledgehammer Games enthusiastically say, the game is back to being ‘boots on the ground’. It’s certainly a change of pace, but I was happier when my boots were sailing through the air at 50mph.

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 a…

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 'til…

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…

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…
