Activision has released an all-new Call of Duty: WWII story trailer.

There’s everything you’d expect – guns, trucks, planes, explosions, gruff soldiers alternating between earnestly whispering and then earnestly yelling at each other – but there’s also an emotionally-charged undercurrent. And it looks stunning. But don’t just take my word for it – check it out above.

“Call of Duty: WWII tells the story of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, a young recruit in the U.S. First Infantry Division who experiences combat for the first time on D-Day, one of the largest amphibious assaults in history,” says Activision in the video description. “After surviving the beaches of Normandy, Red and his squad will fight their way across Europe, engaging the enemy in iconic battle locations such as the Hürtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge, as they make their way into Germany.”

How this emotion will translate on the screen (and into gameplay, of course) remains to be seen, but the multiplayer beta tests have been well-received by fans and critics alike. I can’t wait, to be honest – and I don’t think I’ve ever said that about a CoD game before.

Call of Duty: WWII is out on November 3, 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and available to pre-order now.

Short. Sweary. Sarky. Streamer. Spartan. Story-driven games make me happiest. Spectacularly bad at shooters, but loves them. Screams a lot playing horror games, but loves those, too.
