We all know what to expect from a Call of Duty game. There is always a campaign, always multiplayer, and always co-op PvE. However, over the past decade, we seem to have forgotten how good that package can be when all the pieces fall into place. Enter Call of Duty: WWII, Sledgehammer Games magnum opus and proof that the series still has something to give above and beyond a nostalgia trip back to the bloodiest conflict in human history.
Our Harry Shepherd chose PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds as his game of 2017.
The campaign serves as a greatest hits compilation of the Allied advance to Berlin: storm the beaches of Normandy, liberate Paris, freeze your arse off in the Ardennes, and cross the Rhine. COD: WWII forgoes lumping famous faces at you in an effort to make you care about its campaign, instead it turns the dial back from 11, offering players a limited perspective on the war.
