Paris Games Week already confirmed the new multiplayer maps and mode that Call of Duty WW2 would receive with “The Resistance” expansion pack next month. Before taking a break for the festive season, Sledgehammer Games has offered a few more details this week to keep the hype train rolling.
It will add three new multiplayer maps that are based on three different locations. Sledgehammer Games has briefly detailed them for the time being, with screenshots and complete previews arriving after the development team returns from the holidays.
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 expansion pack will also introduce a new narrative-driven War mode called “Operation Intercept” to the game. It features an “urban rescue mission to save Resistance fighters” from a steaming train. Players will have to destroy a communications post, stop the train, and free those inside.
Finally, the survival-centered Zombies mode will receive a new chapter called “The Darkest Shore” with the upcoming expansion pack. Players must head out to an island north of Germany that is crawling with the undead. According to intel received, Doktor Straub is hiding somewhere in the heart of these dangerous shores.
The Resistance is scheduled to release first for PlayStation 4 on January 30, and then for Xbox One and PC a month later. It is the first map pack for Call of Duty WW2 and was announced by Sony at Paris Games Week 2017 in October.
