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.
