CoD5 has co-op, vehicles in multiplayer, CoD4 engine, every format apart from PSP

The subs issue of this month’s gamesTM has revealed a wealth of information on the now-announced Call of Duty: World at War, the final name for Treyarch’s Call of Duty 5.

From VG247 reader evilashchris, reading from the UK mag: “Right, apparently it’s going to be grittier, as gritty as ANY game out there to quote. The enemy will be scarier and use new tactics.

“There will be co-op for the first time in a Call of Duty. Also there will be vehicles and squad-based elements to the multiplayer. Formats: PC, PS3, 360 and Wii. The Wii version is being worked on by a separate team within Treyarch. [The mag] reckons it’ll be a much closer comparison between the next-gen and Wii versions than any other Wii game on the market.

“Jeez, they have the CoD4 engine running on the Wii apparently. They are using [the CoD4 engine] for all the next-gen ones too. The Wii Zapper will be supported.

“Also, this is how gritty it is: ‘The opening scene of the first level we are shown is a Japanese commander stubbing a cigarette out in the eye of a prisoner before slitting his throat – the blood splatters and dribbles down the side of the tent you are being held in. He turns towards you to deal out the same treatment but help arrives just in time. Cue a daring level-long escape.’”

As is now known, the game will be set in the Pacific theatre of World War II.

    WHAT THE HELL? No no no no no.

    Does anyone know how one can contact Treyarch and leave them some feedback? Because someone needs to tell them they are getting their nuts kicked far into their ass. I’m so tired of WW2… why not Vietnam? I personally loved Shell shocked ‘Nam 67 despite the reviews it got.

    Let’s leave WW2 where it was and move on to another war.We know how it ends and you can’t keep throwing extra shit in there and expect it to be good. You can’t cover shit in tin foil and put fish hooks in them and call them platinum ear rings and expect someone to buy them.

    CoD4 was good in the sense that it was a different war than WW2.

    I enjoyed Shellshock as well. Surely the Pacific stuff will keep this fresh, though?

    BECAUSE NOBODY WANTS TO PLAY VIETNAM! That was France versus Indochina and then America versus North Vietnam. That’s hardly going to be of any interest to very many people around the world. Saying that World War 2 has been totally covered is ignorant. Call of Duty 4 was good for lots of reasons, none of which were “because it wasn’t World War 2″.
