It almost seems like yesterday many people were complaining that every shooter focused on World War II. Call of Duty and Battlefield in particular took that critique to heart and proceeded to create anywhere from borderline futuristic shooters to full-blown sci-fi shooters these past handful of years. Although props to Battlefield 1 for going back to the very first World War, a first for the series. Activision may not be willing to take quite that big a risk, but have greenlight another Call of Duty for the World War II setting. Frankly, it seems like the right call because the lack of boots on the ground shooters from the CoD franchise has been in short supply.

Well, as promised the official reveal of “Call of Duty WWII” happened not too long ago and we have all the latest details. Sledgehammer Games is looking to craft the most immersive World War 2 environment ever while keeping the respect to a bloody conflict. That’s why the developers put a lot of hands on for this game. The team spent time on gun ranges with authentic World War 2 weaponry, watched many hours of old clips and war footage, visited museums and actual old war routes, and literally talked with veterans. Additionally, there is a focus on brotherhood and comradery which acts as a theme behind Call of Duty WWII.

The entire story will take place in Europe from 1944-1945 through the eyes of Private Red Daniels and will feature levels in France, Belgium, England, Germany, and more. Some voice actors have even described it as a massive feature film. A co-op mode you can probably guess will make its mandatory appearance as well. Nazi Zombies will be a separate story that once again focuses on horror elements. The plot behind it is the Third Reich grows desperate and tries to create a new army in the finals stages of the war. No other details were revealed other than a single headshot of a zombie.

Divisions will also make their way to Call of Duty WWII. Not much info was given, but by the sounds of it the feature will play a lot like Battlefield’s setup. Basically being able to choose a class so to speak. It has been said to add immersion to the experience. Most excitingly though is the addition of Headquarters. This “mode” acts like a living space for soldiers and seems inspired by the likes of PlayStation Home or Destiny’s Tower. The quick (read: five second) trailer showed much more than twelve gamers hanging around in a social, war torn space. Again, not much info was given about this new feature.

Call of Duty WWII Officially Revealed; The Full Wrap-Up of All Details

Lastly, the release for Call of Duty WWII has been confirmed for November 3rd of this year. You’ll be guaranteed a spot in it if you pre-order and PlayStation users will receive it first. Plus, a multiplayer beta has been confirmed to arrive before the game’s launch date. We’ve been promised a lot more info come E3 2017 and as always we’ll keep you updated.

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
