We’re getting all sorts of Call of Duty: WWII news today ahead of its official reveal, which will take place next Wednesday. But thanks to a listing over at Amazon UK’s site, we now know what the official box art of the game will look like.
Charlie Intel has reported that the box art for the forthcoming return to World War II won’t be focused on a soldier in the heat of battle – something previous games like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare featured. Instead, it will focus on a singular soldier in World War II garb, showing a distressed look on his face with his hands over his mouth, holding onto dogtags – as if it’s some kind of harrowing reflection of what’s happening during the war.
We’ve seen this promotional artwork before, as it’s currently appearing on the official Call of Duty website, alongside a countdown for when we’ll be able to see first gameplay from the now-confirmed title.
So while the cover art, featured below for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, may not be a surprise, there is one interesting thing to note. Take a close look at the PlayStation 4 art, right next to the rating.
As you can see, there’s an indication of a PlayStation Exclusive, with the words “Play map packs 30 days early.” While we’re not sure if this indicates that players will get access to the full game ahead of schedule or just some multiplayer features in the form of a beta, it’s certainly something for fans to get excited over, as they could be playing the game well before its rumored November 3rd release date.
We’re likely to get more details on what these exclusives are in just a couple of months, when E3 2017 takes place. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare got a big focus during last year’s Sony press conference, and, with the Sony and Activision partnership still in place for the franchise, we’re likely to get more information during that time.
For now, though, we’re looking forward to Wednesday and seeing Call of Duty: WWII in action! The game is slated to arrive later this year for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
