Having a PlayStation Plus membership is still an incredible value. Time and time again, popular AAA games are offered for free to these members. May has been a pretty good month in this regard.
It’s about to get even better as it was just announced that Call of Duty: WWII is being offered for free to members starting May 26. The good news just keeps on rolling in for PS Plus members and it doesn’t seem like it will stop any time soon.
The Call of Duty franchise has been going strong for years now, and this particular installment is a call-back to where the series started. The World War 2 setting and environments certainly give it a unique identify that’s beloved by many first-person shooter enthusiasts.
Like most COD titles, COD:WWII has a campaign, multiplayer, and zombies. All three sections have a lot of shining aspects, although there are some shortcomings with each that prevent this installment from climbing to the top of the charts.
As far as the story, it’s one of the better ones in recent memory for this franchise. It has a very personal feel thanks to the protagonist, Private Daniels. The story follows him throughout pivotal events during WW2. Thus, players get to experience an up close and personal feel to one of the most iconic wars that shaped the world for future generations.
D-Day is just as emotional and action-packed as scenes from Saving Private Ryan. There are many memorable events and iconic landmarks that you’ll get to experience too, which is great if you fancy yourself a history buff.
The multiplayer also is a good time for players looking to put their skills to the test against others across the globe. It has a very fast-tempo pace to it, which helps you stay locked in the action for every match.
Yes, you don’t have advanced weaponry like you did in previous installments, but that just puts more focus on being precise and knowing when to fire. The wide variety of modes will keep you entertained for weeks. Just get ready to kill and die fast.
Call of Duty: WWII isn’t the best installment in this franchise, but it does a lot of things right and is certainly filled with great content. It’s a FPS you’ll want to add to your collection if you have PlayStation Plus and are looking to go back in time to one of the most pivotal events in human history.
