Call of Duty: WWII The War Machine DLC Revealed

By Rebecca Smith, 6 months ago
The Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass includes four DLC packs to be released this year. We've already had the first DLC pack, "The Resistance", and publisher Activision has now announced the second pack: "The War Machine". As is to be expected, the pack will bring more multiplayer maps and another zombies experience.

The War Machine

The map pack will put players into battle in new locations. You'll have a chance to replicate the battle of Dunkirk, enter a new continent with the Egypt map, or take the conflict to a secret German V-2 rocket facility. Developer Sledgehammer Games has joined forces with Raven Software to create another War Mode mission, too. Operation Husky will introduce aerial dogfights into the game. Finally, the Nazi Zombies Barbarossa storyline is extended with The Shadowed Throne. More details on each of these can be found below:

Egypt: For the first time in Call of Duty®: WWII, we’re bringing players to the battlefields of Northern Africa and the Egyptian pyramids. Players fight in and around the ancient ruins at Giza with landmarks that you’re sure to recognise. The map features an interior temple in the centre that heats up during intense Domination matches with more open exterior lanes to either side. There’s something for everyone, as all ranges and playstyles have a place to call home here.
The War Machine

Dunkirk: Players face off on the sands and beachfront boardwalk of the French sea-side city of 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, so keep sharp and watch your angles and surroundings to win the day.
The War Machine

V2: Welcome to V2 – a rocket development and test site located in rural Germany. V2 is a tight, ultra-fast paced map that never lets up for a moment. The launch tower sits at the map centre, providing a focal point and an opportunity to grab an elevated sightline on unsuspecting opponents. Short-to mid-range engagements are dominant here, with fast and furious gameplay throughout – don’t blink!
The War Machine

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 exciting 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 War Machine

The Shadowed Throne: The Shadowed Throne brings our heroes into the heart of Nazi Germany to 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. Join Marie, Drostan, Olivia, and Jefferson on their descent into madness in a city warped with terror, blood, and war, as Nazi Zombies steps out from the shadows of history.
The War Machine
Thanks to a timed exclusivity agreement, PlayStation 4 players will get the DLC first on April 10th. Steam players can expect to receive the DLC four weeks later.
