For the first time since 2008 there is another Call of Duty game that takes place during the Second World War. We have Call of Duty: WWII benchmarked with no less than 30 video cards and in this review we tell you exactly what you need to run this shooter smoothly.
Call of Duty: WWII is of course a first-person shooter, developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. In the single player, you play as a soldier who is part of the American first infantry division, paying particular attention to events on the Western front. However, the multiplayer maps are scattered all over the world.
The game has been built is a proprietary engine of Sledgehammer and is ported to the PC by Raven Software. The controller aim-assist has been removed, but it is quite unique that split screen on the PC is simply supported. In order to play the DirectX 11 game well, the developer recommends at least one Ivy Bridge Generation Core i3 or Ryzen 5 1400, in combination with 8GB RAM and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 or AMD Radeon RX 550 video card. You need 90 GB of free disk space to install the game.
Reviewers have received the game quite positively. Our Dutch colleagues gave the game an 8.5 and praised the exciting campaign. Praise also rained over the slower tempo of the multiplayer which gives a more manageable gameplay and the compelling story. The eye for the detail is another plus along with the new game modes. One of the downsides is the limited player maps.
You can buy Call of Duty: WWII starting from 40 pounds / 45 euros for the PC version, and for a little more, the game is also available for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
