Call of Duty WW2 gets its first DLC pack, The Resistance, at the end of next month. Here’s what’s included.
The Resistance adds three new multiplayer maps to Call of Duty WW2. Although we don’t have any screenshots, Activision offered brief descriptions of each:
Based in Prague, Czechoslovakia, this map is inspired by Operation Anthropoid, the famous assassination attempt on a high-ranking German officer during World War II. This map features a center lane divided by a river, with long-flanking paths that can be used by snipers for ranged attacks.
In this remake of the classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer map Resistance, players battle through the streets and shops of German-occupied Paris during WWII. Long side streets encourage mid-range combat, with nearby homes and storefronts lending defensive positions for ambush and recovery.
Located in the Masurian Woods, East Prussia, this map was inspired by The Wolf’s Lair, Hitler’s Eastern-front headquarters during Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union. This is a medium-sized map with gameplay focused around a dangerous center lane covered by multiple overwatch positions and mounted machine guns.
The Resistance DLC also adds a new mission for Call of Duty WW2’s War Mode, called Operation Intercept. Again, here’s the PR blurb:
Outside of St. Lo, France, our next War Mode experience leads us on an urban rescue mission to save Resistance fighters being transported by train. The first objective on the Allied side is freeing the fighters, followed by the destruction of key communication equipment, and ending with stopping a train.
Finally, for co-op fans, there’s a new chapter in the Nazi Zombies saga. Called The Darkest Shore, it continues the story in the main Call of Duty WW2 Nazi Zombies campaign:
The Darkest Shore follows our heroes into the next chapter of their dangerous journey. Only days after the horrific disaster of Mittelburg, the crew has received intel that suggests Doktor Straub is on an island just north of Germany. Blanketed in fog, this island is surrounded by Nazi air and sea power – and crawling with the Undead. Marie, Drostan, Olivia, and Jefferson will need to battle all this and more to uncover the mysteries hidden within the Darkest Shore.
Now here’s all that information again, but this time in video form, for those too tired from playing Call of Duty WW2 to consider reading:
The Resistance is included in the Call of Duty WW2 season pass and special editions but will also be available to purchase separately. No pricing yet, but we expect the usual formula to apply. Look for The Resistance on PS4 on January 30, wile PC and Xbox One will have to wait a month.
