Gamespot have managed to score an interview with the lead designer of Call of Duty 2. Last month we reported on the official announcement that COD2 was in development. The Q&A Gamespot have with Zied Rieke and Vince Zampella (CEO Infinity Ward) offer a glimpse of what to expect from the sequel in terms of story, characters, weapons, vehicles, AI and such.
Call of Duty 2 features new battles and new military units, so your comrades will be mostly new faces as well. However, our favorite character, Captain Price, the British officer with the big red mustache, will make a heroic return. The shoes that you’ll have to step into in Call of Duty 2 belong to Private Vassili Ivanovich Koslov, a regular in the Soviet Red Army. The game begins with the story of the private fighting just 20 miles from Moscow against the German blitzkrieg. There are two characters on the British side: Sergeant Davis of General Montgomery’s 8th Army and Tank Commander Welsh of the British 7th Armored Division (the famed “Desert Rats”). For the American side, you’ll take the role of Corporal Bill Taylor, a member of the US Army’s legendary 2nd Ranger Battalion.
More news to follow from E3 in a couple of weeks time. Call of Duty 2 scheduled to be released in Autumn of this year.
