Damn Call Of Duty Has Got Some Nice Faces

I don't know who Activision is paying to do the facial models in the latest Call of Duty, but hot damn they're doing a fine job.

2017 has focused on faces and facial animations a little more than anyone would have expected. That's probably thanks to Andromeda, but also because graphics have evolved to the point where small flaws really stand out especially when you're going for hyperrealism.

That's always been Call of Duty's MO, but COD: WWII is another thing entirely. The faces in this game are ridiculous, and this is just from the latest cinematic trailer.

You can watch it all in the story trailer below. It seems like it'll cover fairly familiar ground for video games: a squad survives the beach landing in Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge is involved and there's a series of skirmishes throughout Germany.

Call of Duty: WW2 comes out November 3.


    I honestly thought that first one was a photo... seriously.

    Finally getting eyelids right.
    Looks great.

      It's amazing how little details like that make all the difference huh

    They're getting textures right, but the body animations are still pretty rigid compared to what DICE have been doing with FrostBite

    Still think it would be good if I could just buy the campaign by itself for half price. Will never happen though.

      I just grab these games a few years down the line when they're dirt cheap. The game isn't going anywhere, so no rush to get it imo.

    I don't know why they're still showing the Nazis as the bad guys. There were some very fine people on both sides. Both sides. The gaming industry is treating them very unfairly.

      ...you're easily just trolling. I'm certain.

      As a *history teacher* I assure you, the Nazi's deserve every single bit of hate they get.

        It was a riff on Trump. Thought that was obvious lol

          Not particularly, can't say it hit home well. But, well done either way ;)
