This week in games: Call of Duty returns to World War II, Syberia II is free and more – PCWorld

The blockbuster rush of March might be over, but apparently April is the new indie and semi-indiepile-up. This week we got Rick and Morty‘s VR game, Full Throttle Remastered, Voodoo Vince Remastered, Late Shift, and Everything. Next week: Dawn of War IIIOutlast 2, What Remains of Edith Finch, Wilson’s Heart, and probably some I’m forgetting. Crazy.

But the news keeps piling on too. Call of Duty is returning to World War II next week, EA’s giving away copies of Syberia II, N++ added 2,000 more levels, Patrice Desilet’s ambitious human-documentary project got another teaser, and more.

This is gaming news for April 17 to 21.

Time travel

Getting ready to play the newly-released Syberia 3 and need a refresher on what came before? EA is currently giving away 2004’s Syberia II through Origin’s “On the House” program. And don’t forget, there’s lots of inexpensive gaming to be had this week—both StarCraft and Saints Row II are also free.

D-Day

Rumors have been swirling lately that Call of Duty would be returning to World War II this year. True rumors, as it turns out—this week a timer launched at Call of Duty ’s official website, counting down to the “worldwide reveal” of Call of Duty: WWII next Wednesday.

Not the best name, maybe, but I guess it’s a smidgen better than Battlefield 1. We’ll have a trailer and more presumably next week.

It’s official

Last week we showed off the leaked Star Wars Battlefront II trailer, with Darth Maul in all his double-ended lightsaber glory. That trailer was confirmed/expanded upon over the weekend during Star Wars Celebration, and so here’s a full two minutes of footage.

Some preliminary details have been released too. There is indeed a singleplayer campaign, as well as space dogfighting. I’m still a bit disappointed with the player cap though—24 in dogfights and 40 on ground maps. Really would’ve liked to see DICE hit its traditional 64-player cap for this one. We’ll see how it fares when it releases November 17, though.
