Call of Duty 5 : World at War – First screenshot and details
Developer Treyarch, released new details and a first screenshot today for the next iteration of the Call of Duty series for PC, 360, PS3 and Wii. COD returns back to its roots as the latest installment World at War takes place in the Pacific theater of World War II with the US forces fighting the Japanese. Based on the COD4 engine the game is expected to be very violent with new weapons like the flamethrower which can burn down structures with the enemy in them.
You’ll also be fighting as the Russians, who are invading Germany. With the Nazi forces on the back foot they will start fighting even more ferociously in an attempt to defend their strongholds such as in Berlin. There is also a new party system that will allow the leader to issue commands to his troops in single player.
