The Nazi Zombies of Call of Duty: WWII are back with the game’s first DLC content pack “The Resistance.” The first content upgrade will be available on PS4 on January 30th and will include three new multiplayer maps, a new War Mode mission for Operation Intercept, and the next chapter of Nazi Zombies in “The Darkest Shore.”
You can check out details of the new maps and modes, and a new Zombies trailer below.
Based in Prague, Czechoslovakia, this map is inspired by Operation Anthropoid, which is afamous 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 ideal for snipers.
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 which was Hitler’s Eastern-front headquarters during Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union. You might remember that one going pretty badly, but for the early days, the Germans actually did pretty well in getting through Soviet territory until being pushed back during the Battle of Stalingrad in January of 1943, which was the first time the Nazi government had to admit they’d failed in a military objective. Which is one of the reasons for that “don’t attack Russia in winter” paradigm.
Valkyrie is a medium-sized map with gameplay focused around a dangerous center lane covered by multiple overwatch positions and mounted machine guns.
War Mode – Operation Intercept
Outside of St. Lo, France, the game’s 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. This one should feel pretty familiar for your average COD player, as Operation Intercept has been featured in the series a few times before.
Nazi Zombies: The Darkest Shore
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.
