Call of Duty 5 Details Released
The fifth game in the Call of Duty series will be dubbed Call of Duty: World at War, according to the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine.
The game, which will appear on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii, PlayStation 2 and Nintendo DS platforms, will feature split-screen co-op gameplay on a single machine, and online co-op for up to four players.
Like the first three Call of Duty titles, the game will be set in World War II, particularly in the Pacific Theater where players will be asked to battle Japanese forces — a first for the series that has previously focused on European battlefields.
Specific to the Wii version of the title will be use of Nintendo’s Zapper peripheral, though word on how exactly it will be utilized has yet to materialize. We’re hoping the game will maintain the series’ traditional first-person shooter gameplay, but the announcement of Zapper functionality makes us wonder exactly how the game will function. [wired]
