A new Call of Duty: WW2 video discussing the game’s development is now available.

In the latest Call of Duty: WW2 video, Sledgehammer Games discusses how it wanted to pay homage to the men and women who fought in the war during the campaign mode.

According to the developers, it hopes the Campaign Mode will help define World War 2 for the current generation, while there is still a living memory to draw from as the world loses more veterans of the war every year.

The development team enlisted the help of World War 2 historian and author Martin K.A. Morgan to help accurately describe what happened and what the time was like.

Sledgehammer researched and visited various location for the game, some which will be familiar to players, such as Omaha Beach in Normandy, and the Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes region of southeast Belgium, extending into Luxembourg.

The campaign also delves into how Parisians were virtually suffocated during the Nazi occupation, and fought to liberated the city from its oppressors.

There will other areas in the game which may be lesser known to some, according to the video.

Earlier this week, a campaign trailer was released for Call of Duty: WW2, along with individual trailers for playable and non-playable characters.

Call of Duty: WW2 releases November 3 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
