The past few iterations of Call of Duty has seen the franchise head further and further into the future. While it has led to more interesting methods of gameplay, as well as cutting edge weapons, the storyline for the game's campaign mode has suffered quite a bit. Perhaps then it was fortuitous that 2017's version of the title headed back to its roots, and World War 2 in particular.

The move has not only yielded a far more engaging story, but it appears as if gamers are responding well to the change. To that end, Activision has announced that Call of Duty: WWII has accumulated more than $500 million in sales over its opening weekend (3-5 November). It's a figure that doubles the mark set by last year's COD title, Infinite Warfare, along with setting the record for day one digital sales on the PS4.

It's not just the gaming world that COD: WWII outperformed, with Activision estimating that its latest title garnered greater sales than the combined opening weekend takings for Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman.

We're currently enjoying the game, and will be posting a comprehensive review shortly. In the interim, hit play on the trailer below and see what Call of Duty: WWII is all about.
