Second DLC pack for Call of Duty: WW2 takes the fight to Dunkirk, Egypt, features aerial battles

The second DLC pack for Call of Duty: WW2, The War Machine, has been detailed.

Call of Duty: WW2's second DLC pack will release on April 10 first for PlayStation 4, and features four new maps, and a new War Mode mission with aerial dogfighting.

The pack also includes the next chapter of Nazi Zombies, The Shadowed Throne.

Players will fight in the iconic battle at Dunkirk, travel to a secret German V-2 rocket facility, and head into Egypt.

A new War Mode mission, Operation Husky, was co-developed with Raven Software and is where aerial dogfighting will come into play.

Information on the new maps, war mode, and the next Nazi Zombies chapter can be found below courtesy of Activision.


Egypt: Head to the battlefields of Northern Africa and the Egyptian pyramids where players will fight in and around the ancient ruins at Giza. The map features an interior temple in the center rife for Domination matches with more open exterior lanes to either side.


Dunkirk: This map features a large, open and dangerous beach area flanked by tight interiors through the buildings lining the beach-front. Sniping can be effective here, though aggressive running and gunning can also pay off.


V2: A rocket development and test site located in rural Germany. V2 is a tight, ultra-fast paced map with a launch tower siting at the map center. Short-to mid-range engagements are dominant here, with fast and furious gameplay throughout.


Operation Husky: Operation Husky, whose namesake referred to the Allied invasion of Sicily, is centered on an Allied action to retrieve intelligence on the locations of sensitive German targets in the ports of Palermo and Naples. In this new War Mode offering, players will gather intel, transmit it to HQ, and then take to the skies to clear the area of enemy fighter planes in order to make way for Allied bombers.


The Shadowed Throne: The next chapter in the Nazi Zombies experience takes players into the heart of Nazi Germany. Here, they will confront "a desperate and evil regime. Berlin is burning, and Doktor Straub’s monstrous army is hellbent on purging his city of the Allied invaders.

Call of Duty: WW2 - The War Machine will be available on PC and Xbox One when the PS4 30-day exclusivity period ends.
