First Call Of Duty 5 Images And Details, Xbox 360 Is The Lead Version

post #1 of 131
Thread Starter 
The first site with news on Call of Duty: World at war. The next installment of Cll of Duty, set in World War II and being developed by Treyarch.

Developer: Treyarch
Publisher: Activision
Players: 1-2
Online (Co-Op): 2-4
Online Multiplayer: 2-16

Call of Duty: World at War will utilise the Call of Duty 4 engine but the developer has also added various enhancments, such as the ability the burn down buildings and foliage. The game takes place primarily in the pacific, with the US forces fighting Imperial Japan. Frank Kearsy, military advisor and Gulf War Veteran, has made sure that the way the Japanse fight is both tenacious and shocking.

You'll also be fighting as the Russians, who are invading Germany. With the Nazi forces on the back foot they will start fighting even more ferociously in an attempt to defend their strongholds such as in Berlin. There is also a new party system that will allow the leader to issue commands to his troops in single player.

Mutliplayer perks are also back, including some of the favorites from Call of Duty 4, but there will also be new ones that better suit the time period. The game also features new weapons for the series, such as the flamethrower, which according to OXM, can melt the skin off of your enemies and set ablaze grass and wooden buildings. You are also able to shoot throw materials depending on the strength of the material.

Treyarch is promising that this new installment of Call of Duty will be the darkest one yet and are dedicated to making the best game they can. They have had two years of development time, rather than the 11 months they had for Call of Duty 3. And this time they have specific teams working on all the different versions, with the Xbox 360 version acting as the lead.

People seem to think there are actual aliens in this game, thanks to a quote from the magazine. The quote is actually talking about the Imperial Japanese forces. Seemingly alien forces referring to the fact that the Japanese military fought with completely different tactics and rules to any other force at the time. No actual aliens in he game.

Nobody wants World War 2 games anymore. I'm sure this will be a perfectly good game, but I just don't want to play World War 2 anymore. For the same reason I am passing on that new Brothers in Arms game.

No vehicles?

I'm still upset they went back to WWII after the last version, albeit by a different company moved the title into modern times. Going back just seems wrong.

That being said the stills shown look pretty good and I'm excited to see the ability to burn foliage & buildings in action as this holds so much potential [especially in MP]

Vehicles would also be welcomed again

Does ferocious = infinite Japanese streaming out of a bunker until I cross an invisible line?

I'm kind of over games where me and my 4 idiotic AI team members fight the entire Imperial Army cramped into one bunker.

The few bits of good news from this all is that:

1. It'll be using the CoD4 Engine
2. They've had two years to work on this
3. Perks, they're baaack
4. The sooner this comes out, the sooner CoD6 will be on it's way!!!!

Rental at best.

I'm guessing you meant CoD6...

People arent even giving this game a chance. I personally am very encouraged about what I'm hearing. I dont care if its WW2 or modern. They are using the COD4 engine, which is a great start. They've had more time to develop instead of the EA-sports like <1 year. I bet it will be good.

Hopefully it's not a massive campfest like COD4.

"Dedicated to making the best game they can".

That says it all right there. Might as well as said "thank for check s****rs, we like WWII, and theres nothing you can do about! You're gonna play it, AND LOVE IT!"

No but in all seriousness, it will clearly fall short of CoD4. Let's just hope and pray they surprise us with something that will make us want to play it.

Would'nt be surprised if I saw a majority still playing CoD4 online though :P

A lot of people aren't giving the game a chance because they felt burned on CoD3. And a lot of people do care if its WW2 or modern (I personally don't think modern is any superior - I am just sick of WW2). As for the CoD4 engine, it really doesn't mean much, it won't make the game good or bad, its just a tool. I'm glad they have more time, like I said I am sure it will come out fine, but they started this off on the wrong foot.

Creek is the worst. Honestly I've been playing online shooters since Quake, and COD4 is the worst for camping.

Yeah I guess the camping just doesn't bother me as much on Creek. I guess I've figured out how to get around all of the campers, but that's just about all that map was made for. Maybe on the next map release they'll add a map called Tent.

I am getting the general impression that those of us who buy games for the single player component are just fine with another WW2 shooter, but folks who are multiplayer-only type gamers are obviously less than excited about this game...since going back to Thompsons and bolt action rifles probably isn't what you guys are after.

I find most multiplayer (including COD4) to be dull and repetitive......of course I've been doing multiplayer gaming for a looooong time, so the thrill has kinda worn off....so for me going back to WW2 is fine, I love a good story to work my way through in SP.

No more WW2...

I agree with your statements and am probably one of the few who will buy COD5 before COD4 (provided it looks like a decent game) because of the co-op aspect of it. I enjoy working through a story with somebody and if COD4 would have had that option I would probably own it now.

I'm glad that they're at least focusing on a different operation theatre for the game. I'm getting sick of killing Nazi's in fields, the Pacific theatre will be a welcome change.
post #24 of 131
imagine if they kept the modern warfare and just added tanks and other vehicles like the battlefield series. holy crap.
post #25 of 131
wait.. the company that ruined CoD with #3 is making #5?

I would imagine that being a primarily singleplayer FPS player sick of WW2 would be MORE hesitant about this game. Because of the story and everything.

And CoD4's singleplayer sucks ass. The world does not need another "infinite enemies until you cross an invisible line" shooter. But, if Treyarch at least properly balances Veteran difficulty it will be a major improvement.

I don't need to imagine it, I can play the Battlefield series. It's pretty good.
post #27 of 131
Treyarch is such a horrible developer that I would rather the 360 be the lead version on almost any other game but this one. Truly unexciting news.

I would say it is exciting that the 360 is the lead version for Gears 2 though (instead of the soon to follow PC version).

Good news is that this game could not possibly be worse than COD3.
post #28 of 131
their saving grace will be the use of the COD4 engine. adding co-op and vehicles are there to entice us in. Im sure COD 6 by infinity ward will add these two things and then some.

the graphics update will breathe some more life into the whole WW2 gaming era. changing the theater of war will help some as well.

this will sell well.

You mean COD 4.2? sweet!
post #30 of 131
I'm not wasting my time with yet another WW2 game, I'll stick with COD4.
