    You can go back in the stream to view the trailer; I'm about to do so myself.

    Awesome, I did just that. Now I can stop watching this boring stream where "hype" and "detail" are said every other word...


    Trailer looked great though! Looks like my november will have Star Wars and CoD.

    The Activision guys aren't too good at not staring at the teleprompter.

    Sounds like they're making some kind of a between-match hub as well. E3 is going to be the big reveal. Turning off the stream now because I'm kind of done with listening to these freaking Youtube hypemen.

    Co-op stuff is definitely a zombies campaign.

    I don't think they will until E3.

    Granted, it's not over yet, but it sounds like they're showing everything at E3. The info on the co-op stuff was literally just a jpeg of a Nazi zombie. They show four seconds of a bunch of people in multiplayer milling around in a hub outpost.

    So, just Americans? Wonder if the multiplayer weapons will include guns from the other theaters of the war (Pacific, Eastern) or if it will be all German and American guns...,

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was American, British, Russian, and German weapons for MP.

    Gimmie a Garand, MP40, and a PPSh and I'm good to go!

    I have to say, I do really like the Garand PING that happens during the title card.

    Probably my favorite historical gun ever.

    Game Informer has some info up:
    Players do not recover health or ammo passively. You cannot simply get hit, hide behind some cover, and heal up. You need to call upon your squadmates to get health packs, ammunition, or even covering fire. This makes getting hit carry a significantly more weight than other Call of Duty titles, as taking a bullet has consequences every time.

    Multi:
    Divisions function as a kind of class system that allows you to progress through the ranks. Players enlist in armor, infantry, airborne, or other divisions and grow their character out from there.

    Part of the multiplayer ecosystem revolves around a mode known as War. These symmetrical, Axis vs. Allies battlegrounds place players in two-sides of a single conflict, such as Normandy. One side tries to take the beach, while the other side defends from bunkers.

    Headquarters functions as a new way to socialize and interact with players outside of matches. This shared social space allows players to get rewarded, hang out, and interact without the traditional lobby structure.

    Meh...I'll have to see how that health shit works.

    CoD have never really been a team-based game and I hate when games try to force team mechanics into systems that never really encouraged it to begin with.

    WW2 will always be my favorite era for shooters. This is the first CoD that has my interest since CoD4.

    I wonder how MP cosmetics are going to be. Weapon camos should be ok, but if they have WWII soldiers running around in weird clown suits or dabbing at the end of matches, I feel like that's gonna be in bad taste.

    'Bout time we got back to shooting Nazis.

    Never get tired of shooting Nazis.

    I read that blurb about health as only pertaining to the campaign, since regenerating health is an essential trait of multiplayer. But having to rely on AI squadmates to heal in the Campaign sounds like a crapshoot, unless your AI CoDBros are invincible (as per usual).

    The named characters were immortal, but I remember seeing many of the unnamed NPC soliders being fodder. I remember playing CoD2 and noticing a female Russian solider. About the same time I noticed her, she got shot in the face.

    Yeah, health stuff is in regards to campaign. It could be something as simple as a Bioshock Infinite-style medpack toss or something, we don't know yet. I imagine it will be fairly straightforward. They aren't interested in turning CoD into a sim or anything.

    I do think an active health regen system like in Farcry where you have to patch your self up would be pretty cool, but probably would work for CoDs flow.

    Yep, I'm totally on board with all of this. I wonder if Microsoft will be showing it off further with the Xbox Scorpio full reveal, too.

    Probably not cause I think Sony still has an exclusivity deal with Activision.

    Y'ALL EXCITED CAUSE I'M EXCITED?

    This is the first CoD I've been hype for since like, Black Ops. I'm so glad we're going back to WW2.

    SO GLAD.

    Edit: watching that trailer is giving me them good CoD2 flashbacks. Mmm.

    Although, an R. Lee Ermy announcer voice pack (reprising his role in Ghosts) would actually make sense in this setting. My Snoop Dogg announcer voice pack...well...slightly less so.

    Hey guys, long time. I come bearing some bad news, unfortunately. On April 16th, our long time CoDBro (and my close friend), Holiground, passed away. He left behind a 5 year old son, for which a GoFundMe has been set up. If you want more info on that, you can message me. I don't know if I'm allowed to post that directly to the thread. Josh was a great dude, and I will miss him more than he ever would have believed. I'm sure there's a lot more I could and should say, but I find myself at a loss.

    I thought maybe it would be fun (?) to have a Holiground Memorial COD night, just like old times. I know a lot of us are on different platforms, and some of us don't even play COD anymore, but for those of you interested, let's figure out which game and on which console we should get together on. I plan on being super drunk and susceptible to wild emotional swings. Join me. :)

    (I have all the recent CoDs on PS4, and can play Blops 1 & 2 via BC on XBone.)

    @Dashui @dinoarus @acidlacedpenguin @Secretagentman @Sanguinary @Vey @MrVyngaard (I'm sure I forgot some people. Sorry!)


    RIP Buddy.
    had a great weekend. @MayGodHaveMercy convinced me to prestiege, which was a mistake, but other than that I had fun. Some highlights.

    Mercy asked me what was wrong because I was giggling like a schoolgirl after dashing around their spawn with the ripper.

    and as a bonus, LET IT BURN.

    I'm down for any of them, but Black Ops 1 and 2 sound good. That was when most of us were together.

    I'd definitely be down for a memorial COD party. I still have all of the 360 and/or backwards compatible cods, and Advanced Warfare on the One. Also open to PS4 CoD4 remaster, blops3, or infinite warfare

    Re: drunk Mercy CoD: I'm down for whatever; but I'm that guy that only has Playstation (MW2-BLOPS2, not Ghosts on PS3, AW & BLOPS3 on PS4). Not trying to dictate what happens, just giving info.
