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 co-operative gameplay. New infantry and vehicle-based weapons, like the potent flamethrower, bring the battlefield ablaze.
Final Battles: Call of Duty: World at War forces players to survive
the final climactic days of a world at war to thwart the advance of Axis powers
on multiple fronts from Europe to the Pacific - delivering the hallmark Call of
Duty cinematic intensity on a worldwide scale. Play as a U.S. Marine or Russian
conscript across a variety of European and Pacific infantry, vehicle and
Co-Op Campaign Mode: "No One Fights Alone" takes on new meaning as
players can complete the entire single-player campaign with up to four players
online or two players via split-screen (both online and offline). Strategising

and leading class-based multiplayer action. The addition of vehicles to the
highly-successful Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare multiplayer that already
includes persistent experience, player rankings, upgradeable weapons,
squad-based gameplay, map scripting, customisable classes and perks, brings a
new dimension to Call of Duty online warfare.

rim-lighting and texture-streaming technology bring the adrenaline-pumping
combat to life. Physics-enabled battlefields and destructible cover immerse
players into the harrowing and dynamic combat.
