First Call of Duty 5 trailer premieres

Watch it now on Eurogamer TV.

The very first trailer for Call of Duty 5 is now showing on Eurogamer TV.

The game is being developed by Treyarch and is subtitled World at War. It's said to offer a gritty, mature portrayal of events during the Second World War. Early teasers show a prisoner of war being tortured and having his throat cut, while your character looks on and waits his turn for the same treatment.

It'll be the first COD game to feature co-op action. Two players can team up on split-screen, while up to four can enjoy online co-op. Vehicles will play an important role and you can expect the return of squad-based multiplayer, plus the option to say real army phrases into your headset.

Treyarch has sensibly used the Call of Duty 4 engine as a foundation to build on. There will be more destructible environments where you can shoot holes in wood then climb through them and set fire to things.

Call of Duty: World at War is coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 sometime before April next year.
