Call of Duty : World at War footage revealed
Let's face it: there appears to be some people a tad bit worried about the quality of the next Call of Duty game considering the franchise's perpetual ping-pong between development studios Infinity Ward and Treyarch. Despite statistical fact to prove otherwise, these factions espouse a certain theory that COD games pretty much follow the "Star Trek Model" (even numbered sequel titles good, odd numbered - not so good).
With our very own Commander-in-Chief DolphGB recently checking in on Treyarch's other holiday-season big hitter (Quantum of Solace), we're confident that the studio are going to knock one out of the park for Mr. Bond but what about Call of Duty's return to the killing fields of World War II?
Well, the salient point about Call of Duty: World at War (aka COD5) is that it is built using COD4's engine so those aforementioned fears should be automatically allayed. Naysayers still might claim that the new campaign is purely a re-skin of COD4 but we ask: even if this is true (considering how awesome COD4 is) would this necessarily be a bad thing?
C&VG has posted up some video footage captured during the COD:WAW beta with one such glimpse displayed here.
It does have that distinctive COD4 feel to it; albeit with the flavour of the Pacific setting. Let us know what you think about COD's latest venture in the comments.
