While Call of Duty: WWII’s story campaign will focus specifically on an American squad of soldiers fighting in the war’s European front, developer Sledgehammer Games recently confirmed that the game’s multiplayer component will go beyond the campaign’s European borders.
During a recent interview with EDGE magazine, Sledgehammer revealed new details about Call of Duty: WWIII, and one Reddit user managed to share parts of the interview over on the Call of Duty: WWII subreddit. Here’s an excerpt relating to the game’s multiplayer maps:
“Such environmental storytelling will also feature in the multiplayer component, which in addition to revisiting battlefields featured in the single-player campaign will also expand to different fronts.”
Past Call of Duty titles have traditionally featured multiplayer maps that borrowed environmental backdrops from the game’s associated story campaign, but it sounds like Sledgehammer is going to be making the extra effort to include additional locales from World War II into the game from the outset. We’ll likely find out what those additional locales will be when Call of Duty: WWII gets a more in-depth multiplayer reveal at E3.
