Haven't decided to take the leap and dive into the ball pen of console gaming? Still waiting for that perfect livery for one of the eighth-gen consoles? Or, perhaps the right bundle just hasn't come along to sweep you off your feet? Well, maybe the matte colors of camouflage and a military-themed DualShock 4 might be exactly what's required to get you to finally take the step over to the side of Sony.
Over on the PlayStation Blog, SIEA VP of marketing, Mary Yee, rolled out the news about the officially licensed Call of Duty: WW2 themed PlayStation 4 game console bundle, which also comes with a matching DualShock 4 wireless controller.
The PlayStation 4 has a forest camouflage livery on the front cover, with a strong military-green layer covering the bottom of the device. The DualShock 4 matches the the bottom half of the PlayStation 4, sporting a thorough, solid green color scheme with a slightly darker coat of green on the bottom half of the left and right grips.
The package comes in a specially designed bundle pack with a Call of Duty: WW2 image on the background while the camo-designed PS4 and DualShock 4 are the focus of the cover.
The package comes with the system and controller, a 1TB hard drive, and a standard physical copy of Call of Duty: WW2. This bundle is priced at $299.99 and will be made available starting November 3rd, 2017 along with the release of Sledgehammer Games and Activision's new first-person shooter.
PlayStation 4 owners will also have access to new DLC expansions 30 days before Xbox One and Steam gamers, so there's an extra incentive to get the PS4 version over the others.
However, take note that even though this is a limited edition bundle, the bundle only comes with a standard version of Call of Duty: WW2, and not the limited, deluxe or special editions of the game that come with the season pass. You would have to purchase that separately.
As for the game itself, Sledgehammer decided to go back to the boots on the ground action of the second World War. The timing was perfect because gamers were getting fatigued on the future warfare motif, as evident with the slumped sales of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
In fact, Infinite Warfare has one of the most downvoted trailers on YouTube. The debut trailer came out around the same time as the unveiling of Battlefield 1 and it was obvious one game was really trying something different while the other was attempting to ride on the wave of futuristic sci-fi shooters that had been flooding the market.
Activision and Sledgehammer luckily had Call of Duty: WW2 waiting in the wings for the 2017 outing, which was a stark deviation from the sci-fi themed games in the series that had come out year after year.
You can look to get your hands on the game come November 3rd, or you can pre-order the limited edition PS4 bundle right now ahead of release.
