GameTrailers may have unveiled the first trailer for Call of Duty: World at War a few days ago, but only now has Activision given the game its formal announcement via press release. As already known, World at War will take the acclaimed FPS series to the South Pacific and European theaters of WWII and depict a darker, grittier “uncensored” side of the war that hasn’t been covered before. Treyarch at the helm, World at War is powered by Infinity Ward’s impressive Call of Duty 4 engine and will feature four-player online and two-player local split-screen co-op, modes I would’ve killed to have had in CoD4! The cool part is that the co-op and competitive multiplayer components will be synced together. So while playing co-op, all experience points earned and perks unlocked will also carry over to the competitive modes. Very nice!

As for platforms and a release date, Call of Duty: World at War is due out this fall for the PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and even the Wii, surprisingly enough.
