This year's Call of Duty returns to WW2

People need to take everything ModernWarzone says with a massive grain of salt. He's pushed a Soap rumor for months with nothing of substance to back it up. He pushed the rumored day of March 11 as a content drop after zombies was over, that was false. Plus he gets all butthurt anytime he's called out about something. The dude is a pro at dropping teasers. He wants credit for everything but gives credit for nothing. He literally stole this post the other day from Reddit just so he could post it on his Twitter. He was literally crying on Twitter the other day about reddit users calling out his bullshit, only to delete the tweets later. He's an attention whore.

Take my award, this needs to be more spread, Screw that weasel

It does say in this article that Eurogamer verified it with their own sources. So maybe there’s more to this one.

So I actually knew ModernWarzone from the very beginning. The guy who runs it got "big" when he "leaked" the release date of Warzone last year. But the truth was he didn't leak anything, he literally used the same source that the original leaker did (VGC) and claimed that he had an "insider source". Essentially trying to steal some of the clout. I knew this because one of the mods that kicked out told me about this.

What OP is saying isn't a huge exaggeration by any means. The guy gets mad when you call him out. He'll even screenshot your comment, leave out important pieces of info, and repost it to his Twitter account for pity support.

The amount of back patting he does to himself is absurd. This will prob get screen shorted and posted, with a bunch of ppl calling me a hater, despite all the proof in your post.

ID: gsbfsgw

He's been doing this since the lead-up to Warzone release. He presents conjecture/ speculation as fact. He's not bad at what he does but he's definitely got an ego. He's like a CoD tabloid basically.

I just want a native PS5 version of Warzone

I just hope for gyro aiming option.

I legitimately just want a Vietnam game

ID: gsar242

If they make another Vietnam game the story should definitely be from the Vietnamese perspective. Rebels fighting against an invading evil empire makes for a more engaging narrative than the other way around.

ID: gsaycnz

That’d be amazing, but no mainstream game studio would ever make anything that interesting. Which is a shame tbh

ID: gsavpdq

That would require the writers for COD to understand moral nuance...hint, they don't.

They'd just tell the story through some American propaganda perspective, with no respect to the real events. It's the COD way...

ID: gsc07qb

You understand there were two Vietnamese armies involved right? The northern army was China-backed communist and the southern army was American and French-backed. It wasn’t “Vietnam vs xxx” lol

ID: gsb73zf

That won't appeal to American dudebros.

ID: gsarbg8

idk if we ever get a game where americans lose the war lol, not without heavy heavy editorializing.

ID: gsapu8b

Black ops 1 has some Vietnam but Ik what u mean

ID: gsb5iag

If people are so “outraged” over the Falluja game, then they’ll have an aneurism over Vietnam. Unless of course they just don’t really care and are standing on a karma soapbox because they see others doing it.

ID: gsb6tyb

You need to understand that no one's "outraged" due to the game taking place in Fallujah, they're angry because the tone and apparent plot of the game whitewashes and incorrectly portrays horrifying actions done by the US military in a light that is not appropriate. Heavy and/or political subjects can be approached, you just need to not lie about what happened or glorify atrocities.

Why haven't we had another time period other than the future, alternate universe, or WW2?

Even if it sounds boring i wanna experience the line battles of the revolutionary war, the trench warfare of WW1, or hell, maybe even fight as a german soldier instead.

The only game like that is Darkest of Days and to me that was a fun setting, just shit leadership

I’m all for it if they use a rebuilt engine from the ground up for PS5 or something that gives us lifelike graphics and physics, etc.

9 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:03 ID: gsardbx

Pleeeease let this game use MW 2019s engine. Cold War looks so bad in comparison. MWs campaign is literally seamless

ID: gsaseyn

MW also was made with so much love though. That campaign definitely wasn't just another campaign.

ID: gsbihf7

MW focused a lot more on character development and that helped a ton.

ID: gsat9rt

Agreed. One of, if not the best campaigns we have ever had. MW2 is the only one i liked better.

10 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:01 ID: gsar2yq

Meh another ww2 game and another cod..

ID: gsb5ri0

If rumours are true, it's an alternate universe that takes place during WW2 where the war didn't end when it actually did.

Sounds interesting.

ID: gsb9ulz

This sounds exactly like Wolfenstein: the new order.

if true, ill be playing cold war for another year

can't wait for COD 20: WW2 2

13 : Anonymous2021/03/26 21:15 ID: gsc8gvf

My first experiences with COD were the WWII games on the 360. While I didn't mind the last one they did, and considering Battlefield V also covered that era, it's safe to say I'm fucking over WWII.

I'm loving Cold War's return to the old days of COD, but that doesn't mean I want to go back to the old games of COD.

Thankfully BF6 is coming out this year and I can take a break from COD.

No thanks

17 : Anonymous2021/03/26 22:21 ID: gsci8ji

CoD is at a strange impasse. They can't go for the bigger scale vibe because I think Battlefield 6 will likely trounce their efforts, and the usual CoD gameplay is just a bit tired...they can't just pump these things out every year and expect the sales numbers to continue upward.

Ideally, MW would have been given a 2 year cycle to allow it to flourish further with new maps etc...and we'd be getting a FAR more polished, comprehensive Cold War this fall.

And without a doubt, Warzone has cannibalised CoD multiplayer.

So as I said...CoD's at a weird juncture, hard to say what the right path is for the new gen.

18 : Anonymous2021/03/26 21:29 ID: gscaney

Lol at this point I’m down for Call of Duty Urban Warfare where the entire campaign is a bunch of dudes in green shirts trying to stop a bunch of dudes in purple shirts from doing drive by’s.

You can lift weights and drive cars....

Hard pass on WW2 we got one modern warfare and a Cold War game, they already wanna do WW2? Battlefield is coming back

ID: gsbo2lz

Feel old, playing CoD long enough to see the game reboot / remake its original hits!

20 : Anonymous2021/03/26 17:45 ID: gsbd63r

Man, WW2 is just so stale as a shooter setting now IMO and they went back to it already a few years ago. Most people are still enjoying MW even after Cold War. They should just stick with that.

21 : Anonymous2021/03/26 18:01 ID: gsbfeoa

I hope not, it's been done to death.

22 : Anonymous2021/03/26 18:21 ID: gsbhz8u

We went through a horrid time years ago when we had 3 futuristic shooters with advanced movement release back to back.

What we are getting now is so much better. IW focusing on modern day, 3arc focusing on the Cold War and SHG focusing on WW2. Doesn’t keep things stale. People shouldn’t be throwing a fit.

Warzone will feature modern day, Cold War and WW2 weaponry later this year.

Sbmm has been mentioned as well

27 : Anonymous2021/03/26 14:58 ID: gsaqmey

I didn't enjoy WW2 too much, despite the setting. If you ask me, the setting and CoD's gameplay are not compatible.

28 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:45 ID: gsax26j

If you ask me, the setting and CoD's gameplay are not compatible.

I'm no expert, but weren't the first 3 Call of Duties in WW2? That'd be like saying Assassin's Creed and the Crusades aren't compatible.

29 : Anonymous2021/03/26 16:50 ID: gsb5vdw

They were, and not only that, those time periods were the staple of the COD franchise into what it is today...

Damn I feel old.

30 : Anonymous2021/03/26 16:33 ID: gsb3mra

It USED to be but it evolved past it since cod4.

31 : Anonymous2021/03/26 17:15 ID: gsb99xq

I see your point, but CoD changed with CoD4 and even more in recent years. Imo it's not comparable to CoD1-3.

32 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:01 ID: gsar341

Hm that's a good point. I just love the setting so I'm always excited when they go back to it, but CoD has more of that high octane action vibe whereas Battlefield really nails those eras.

33 : Anonymous2021/03/26 20:58 ID: gsc5yg8

Crazy unpopular opinion: WW2 is a top 5 CoD game.

I thought they nailed the loot box system and made grinding worthwhile. The game had a ton of cosmetics in loot boxes that you could pay real money for but 1 loot box per level was very fair IMO. Maps were good but not great. Gun variety was lacking but still fun. The SBMM seemed very toned down compared to recent CoDs. It just seemed like the last Cod that wasn’t a total sweat fest to play. Maybe it’s because the wannabe MLG 13 year old twitch streamers didn’t like the “old” setting

34 : Anonymous2021/03/26 22:06 ID: gscg1eh

totally agree with you. when the game first came out, it was complete dogshit, but they eventually updated it and revamped so much of the core gameplay. WW2 is the only recent COD (post-MW2) that i continue to go back and play.

35 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:21 ID: gsatr96

I get tired of looking at guns with the clip hanging out of the side. Looks cartoonish to me even though I know they were real guns.

36 : Anonymous2021/03/26 21:42 ID: gsccmv6

Everybody saying how ww2 is done to death let me ask you one question: what ww2 games are you playing on console? Because there aren’t many. COD ww2 is currently the only one, I don’t consider BFV a proper ww2 game but maybe that’s just me. But even then you only have two, compared to the hundreds of modern shooters.

I only want a CoD World at War remaster damn it.

37 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:26 ID: gsaud30

Gross. If it’s anything like ww2 I’ll pass.

Rumors were swirling its not just regular WW2 though, but some kind of alternative reality WW2 that went on into the 1950s.
