Call of Duty: WW2 Live-Action Trailers Get the Band Back Together

Take an 'Ocean's 11' plotline, sprinkle in some Royal Blood, and you've got the next batch of live-action trailers to hype up the newest Call of Duty.

There are certain elements of the annual Call of Duty release cycle that are like clockwork. There's the single-player trailer, multiplayer reveal celebration, and zombies. Always lots of zombies! But there's also the annual live-action trailer that shows real people getting ready to gather around the TV for some Call of Duty. Call of Duty: WWII is no different, debuting a new live-action trailer on Sunday morning.

This year's trailer has an atmosphere similar to "Ocean's 11," in the sense that it's all about getting the old band back together. After all, the series is going back to World War II, so it's all about the older player base grabbing their friends and getting ready to jump back into the CoD game.

Fans of Royal Blood will be pleased to hear the band's single "Figure It Out" featured prominently in the video below.

Those looking for a more international flavor can find completely different videos for the UK and French regions below. They're different enough that they're worth a look, so check those out, as well.

Call of Duty: WWII arrives on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 3.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I wish they'd sell only the multiplayer package for half the price. I only care about CoD multiplayer, but €60 is too steep for a game with a half-life of a couple of months.

          Yeah, the Call of Duty single player campaigns were the whole reason I bothered playing them. I always preferred Battlefield games for multiplayer.

          Modern Warfare 1 was the last Call of Duty I bothered with once I saw how much more developer focus was given to the multiplayer over the single player, to the point where the single player could be completed on hardest in around 4-6 hours.

          I miss the chaotic mass-slaughter campaigns from Call of Duty 1 and 2. At least they tried to showcase the futility of war.
