After proving itself as one of 2017’s best-sellers, Call of Duty: WWII is expanding as the first DLC pack, The Resistance, arrives on Xbox One.
The Resistance DLC brings some great new multiplayer content to Call of Duty: WWII as well as an all-new twist to the Nazi Zombies story saga. Starting off the content are three new Multiplayer maps, spanning locations from Paris to Prague.
‘Anthropoid’ is the first, and this takes players to Prague, Czechoslovakia. This map is inspired heavily by Operation Anthropoid which is the famous assassination attempt on a high-ranking German officer during World War II. With a central lane divided by a river, as well as long flanking paths either side, it is great for both close quarters combat as well as long range sniper fire.
‘Occupation’ is next up, and this map brings a remake of a Call of Duty classic multiplayer map. Here players will battle through the streets and shops of the German-occupied Paris in the midst of World War II. With plenty of long side streets enabling long and mid-range combat as well as nearby storefronts proving great for defensive tactical play and close quarters combat, you could find it the perfect place to recover from attack or find yourself walking into an ambush.
Finally, we have ‘Valkyrie’. This map takes players to the Masurian Woods, in the historical state of Prussia, Germany – it has been heavily inspired by The Wolf’s Lair – Hitler’s Eastern-front headquarters during Operation Barbarossa in which the Nazi’s invaded the Soviet Union. Valkyrie is the largest of the three and brings a dangerous centre lane in to play which is also the most dangerous place to roam with multiple overwatch positions complete with mounted machine guns for those foolish enough to spend too long in one position.
Next up is the new War Mode map – ‘Operation Intercept’. Since it’s arrival, fans have been clamouring for new additions for Call of Duty: WWII’s War Mode and whilst this only sees one new addition brought to the game it’s certainly a welcome one.
In ‘Operation Intercept’ players will be taken to the outside of St. Lo, France, on an urban rescue mission to save multiple Resistance fighters that are being transported by train out of the country. The first objective is to free the fighters before following the attack up with the destruction of key communication equipment and finally the train on which the fighters are being transported upon.
The final content arrival with The Resistance DLC is of course the new chapter in the Nazi Zombies saga. Titled ‘The Darkest Shore’, it follows the heroes into the next chapter of their horrifying journey. It’s only days after the disaster of Mittelburg and the crew has received vital intel that suggests that Doktor Straub is on an island close by to the north of Germany. With thick fog surrounding the island, and the island crawling with undead Nazi’s, Marie, Drostan, Olivia and Jefferson will need to battle their way to the truth of the mysteries hidden within the Darkest Shore.
If that sounds like something you want to be getting involved in, then you can head on over to the Microsoft Store right now to pick up The Resistance DLC for £11.59, whilst holders of the Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass will find the content available to install at no extra cost.
