Call Of Duty: WW2 Campaign Will Not Feature Playable Germans Or Axis Forces
(Last Updated On: May 25, 2017)

The dilapidated looking Michael “The Conman” Condrey has stepped up his SJW “muh feels” even more in the upcoming Call of Duty: WW2 game by axing out all playable Axis figures in game, revealing that you will not be able to play as the “Evil” Germans, given that “The Axis power is a ferocious enemy” in the game.

Catching wind from GameRant, I guess I’ll be “Ann Frank” here and say that I did “Nazi” this coming, but when a certain Twitter user asked Condrey if Axis soldiers would make a playable appearance in the campaign mode of Call of Duty: WW2, he replied with the following response:

“You’ll fight and follow the Allied cause. The Axis power is a ferocious enemy. But no, you won’t play as Axis in campaign.”

This move of not following any of the Axis participants and avoiding to show a more none-biased view of the war — giving gamers potential pause for discussion regarding the roles of the Allied and Axis forces — seems to kill all originality. It forces the story to take on a cliche and predictable layout that we’ve seen from many other World War II games in the past. I’m not saying to glorify the treacherous acts of the Axis, but at least show the soldier side of both the Allied and Axis forces in a relatable way, but I guess that calls for actual writing skills.

In addition to the above, the Condrey and team want to play it SJW safe and try to avoid hurting those invisible feelings, because you know playing as the Axis would hurt too many when it comes to a fictionalized game rendered in 3D, amiright?

I already know what most people will say, though, “It’s just the story mode! The MP will feature the Axis! So quite complaining and get over it!” That’s beside the point, we are in 2017 where everything before CoD:WW2 has done exactly that with their campaign mode. If you are going to use a worn out setting like WW2 and not do anything different don’t be shocked when a backlash by gamers and fans alike ramp up. But, I guess Activision and Sledgehammer Games could always use the saying of “I did Nazi that coming” when crap hits the fan.

So there you have it, you won’t see anything different from the Axis side, except for them being “a ferocious enemy” in Call of Duty: WW2. With that said, what’s your thoughts of Germans or Axis not be a playable side in the campaign mode of CoD:WW2?

    No AAA game has ever portrayed the Axis in a story mode. Wish they would, but Sledgehammer Games not doing it in this one was not surprised. I’d love to play as a German during the Western Desert campaign for example, under Rommel, or a Battle of France campaign mission. More diversity in their use of settings as well; it’s why Call of Duty: World at War was a great game because they focused on both the Pacific and the Eastern Fronts.

    And if Sledgehammer Games was really about ‘diversity’, they’d make a campaign mission where you played as a member of the 442nd Combat Regiment or the 761st Tank Battalion. Or hell, the Indians in the Burmese front, or a Gurkha so it’s not Murica centric. An Aussie. Somebody who isn’t English or American. Call of Duty II and III touched upon this with their Canadian and Polish characters.

    I want Call of Duty: WW2 to be a great game, but the story campaign is going to be more of the same. A shame really.

    Can’t have other points of view in our dear and honest libertarian media – the snowflakes are too afraid that their 100% right ideals could be challenged.

  • SevTheBear

    I don’t really care about WW2 games. They have been done to death and they always love to suck the cock of the US army and they focus on the SAME FREAKING EVENTS every time.

  • RichardGristle

    Not really surprising, but what the hell how many times can we storm Utah or fight valiantly in a losing effort at Operation Market Garden? For Christ sake mix up the perspectives a bit.

  • Alistair

    Instead of Germans you be controlling aliens and monsters.

    And you will fucking like it.

    No we won’t because you Micheal is a SJW.

    Edit: the above it won’t be any of them but it may way be as you can’t control them.

    Not shocking, but still lame. Also agree that Allies have been overdone in vidya war games. A properly handled Axis storyline would at least be a refreshing take on things, but given all current year politics in vidya (not to mention all the social opposition to the idea of playing as the nazis), I don’t see that happening anytime soon.

      A true to life story would be about Germans defending Germany, but none of the post war propaganda that has in recent years fallen away.

    I’m sick of WWII games set in Normandy. I wish they’d make one set in the Eastern Front where you played as the Wehrmacht for the first half of the game and the Red Army for the second half.

    • you played as the Wehrmacht for the first half of the game and the Red Army for the second half.

      You just named Red Orchestra 2’s story mode.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Has there ever been a COD where we could play as the Axis outside of multiplayer?

    • Nope.

      But you only played as the Russians and Germans in Red Orchestra 2’s story mode. It was based on the real life diaries and journals of the soldiers who lived and died during the campaigns featured in the story mode.

      • Fear Me I Am Free

        Then I don’t get why this needs to be said then.

        • People asked Condrey if they might add an Axis campaign for once, but they aren’t. So it’s just like all the other mainstream games set in World War II.

          • Fear Me I Am Free

            Ah.

    Imagine if the Nazis won: “The next For the Fuhrer game won’t let you play as the Americans.”

    • Alistair

      I to shudder to think what would have happen if Nazis won the war.

      But the regressions will shudder if nazis won the war as they won’t put up with regressions BS and probably gas them.

      Of course today Age we humane.

        We’d have a base on Titan, enjoy revolutionary health care, free energy would be a thing (still classified today), and there would be none of this race war bullshit as every race would be in their own area developing and doing their own thing.

        Maybe or the Nazi could have just as well have turned out to be snowflakes. I remember watching a documentary about Nazis trying to find “oriental Aryans”, which is like “wrongskin” or “transblack” or some other SJW nonsense.

        They could have become a bunch of hyper-sensitive crybabies but with different triggers besides “privilege”, “wage gap”, video games, or anything else under the sun.

        If the Nazis had won Western Europe wouldn’t be a third islamic world shithole by 2050.
