The first details from Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 5: World at War has brought the news that co-op will feature in the game for the first time in the history of the franchise.

Print magazine, GamesTM has revealed that “There will be co-op for the first time in Call of Duty. Also there will be vehicles and squad-based elements to the multiplayer."

The magazine also states that it will be released on PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii , but the developer is putting a lot of work into the Wii version and as a result it will be the best looking game on the platform.

“Jeez, they have the CoD4 engine running on the Wii apparently. They are using (the CoD4 engine) for all the next-gen ones too. The Wii Zapper will be supported, ”, reads the article.

The mag continues:: ‘The opening scene of the first level we are shown is a Japanese commander stubbing a cigarette out in the eye of a prisoner before slitting his throat - the blood splatters and dribbles down the side of the tent you are being held in. He turns towards you to deal out the same treatment but help arrives just in time. Cue a daring level-long escape.’”

Now that the first print article has gone live, we can expect an official announcement and hopefully some screenshots from Activision very soon.

Awesome, I love the concept of co-op! Although I haven't really play much co-op recently… I don't think it would work well on the Wii though, the controls would be too difficult imo
Article updated.
Sweet!!

Good to see they are putting a lot of effort into the wii version.

I only started playing this game on the PC about 2 months ago but loved the story line shame it was a bit short

Did you play the other COD game on Wii. It made me dizzy, I couldn't handle it.
Another WW2 game, I never though I'd see the day…..
