Yet another leak regarding Activision's next Call of Duty game appeared over the weekend, this time indicating that CoD: WW2 will include a cooperative campaign mode.

The leak cropped up on Reddit, and appears to show marketing materials for the game in Australia.

The visible copy is mostly the usual bumph, but does make reference to a co-operative, "next-level standalone game experience". This mode will be story-driven and sounds like it will be kept entirely separate from the campaign proper.

Last year's sci-fi epic, Infinite Warfare, excluded co-operative play from its campaign, unlike its predecessor, Black Ops 3, which allowed up to four people to play through its campaign together online.

The box copy also indicates that Activision is once again granting players access to the game's beta if they pre-order. The exact phrase used is "Private Beta", which presumably will be separate from any open-beta weekends Activision chooses to hold in advance of launch.

Both Infinite Warfare and Black Ops 3 held several open-beta weekends in the run-up to launch.

Whether in response to the recent string of leaks or as part of its ordinary marketing schedule, Activision is revealing further details of CoD: WW2 on April 26 at 5pm GMT (we presume it means 6pm BST).
