Call of Duty fans, your wait for the next installation in the call of duty series is finally over. Call of Duty 5 : World At War was released on the 11th this month in the US and will be released tomorrow in Europe. The game will be released on all platforms, the PC, XBOX 360, Playstation3, Wii and NDS. The beta version for multiplayer had been in the gaming community for around a week now. So gamers already had a feel of how the game will play when the full version is out. This time CoD5 was developed by the Treyarch studio compared to InfinityWard for CoD4. The publisher Activision is now merged with Blizzard Entertainment to form a stronger company that can challenge Electronic Arts(EA).
Call of Duty®: World at War completely changes the rules of engagement by redefining WWII gaming and thrusting players into the final tension-filled, unforgiving battles against a new ferocious enemy in the most dangerous and suspenseful action ever seen in WWII.
Powered by Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare technology, Call of Duty: World at War brings an uncensored edge to combat, as soldiers face the most harrowing and climatic European and Pacific battles in which an enemy, who knows no surrender and no retreat, will fight to the last breath, unleashing an arsenal of lethal surprising tactics. Peril and danger lurk throughout the battlefield as players combat the unknown risk of the new chaos of battle.
From the remains of Russia and the ruins of Berlin, to the beach and jungles of the deadly Pacific Theater, the volatile action takes on added depth as players employ new features that previously were only-available in multiplayer, including perks, rankings and online stats in up-to full four-player cooperative gameplay. New infantry and vehicle-based weapons, like the potent flamethrower, bring the battlefield ablaze.
I seriously can't wait for the gaming gaming community in Malaysia to start playing this game. However, i do not wish this to cause CoD4 to suffer. Playing CoD4 on multiplayer is still the best first person shooter(FPS) for now. Nothing comes close, not even CounterStrike Source, Unreal Tournament or Quake. By the way, a new installion of Quake is going to be in the markets real soon. I can't wait to try that out too.
