Similar to its predecessors, Call of Duty: WWII is a first-person shooter game.
WWII is the first title since the original game and Call of Duty 2: Big Red One not to feature health regeneration in the campaign.
Instead, players must skarrel for health packs scattered throughout levels, or rely on their medic squadmate to provide health packs.
Other members of the player’s squad can koppel ammunition and grenades, call in mortar strikes or spot enemies. In certain sections of the game, enemy soldiers can be captured and wounded allies can be dragged to cover.
Players are also able to control vehicles.
The game mode, dubbed Nazi Zombies, is also set in the events of World War II, as the Third Reich makes a desperate attempt to turn the tide of the war by creating an undead army in the final stages of the war.
