Activision has announced that the second DLC pack for Call of Duty: WW2 will be titled War Machine, and will include dog fighting and much more.
As you’d expect, Call of Duty: WW2‘s next DLC will include a number of new maps as well as new “experiences” which will take players to an all new level of gameplay. War Machine, as it’s called will bring three new maps to the game, Dunkirk, Egypt, and V2.
Dunkirk, as you’d expect, sends players to the iconic WW2 battle of Dunkirk offering large open beach areas for players to battle amongst, complimented by much tighter interiors of the buildings which boarder the beach front. According to the press release, this is going to be a sniper haven… which I’m personally not looking forward to.
Egypt is a first for Call of Duty: WW2 as players will be whisked away to the battlefields of Northern Africa and the Egyptian pyramids as they battle through the ruins of Giza. The map is set to feature an interior temple with plenty of open lanes either side.
Finally, V2 will have players infiltrate a German V-2 rocket testing site. This map is an ultra fast and ultra tight map which will suit run and gunners. With a launch tower at the map center, this also gives snipers an opportunity to pick off other players but also risk becoming trapped.
In addition, a new War Mode mission will be available titled Operation Husky which includes a brand new gameplay mechanic, aerial dogfighting. According to the press release, Operation Husky will have Call of Duty: WW2 players head to Sicily as Allied forces are tasked with retrieving intelligence from the Axis forces. Players will be tasks to gather intel, transmit to HQ, then clear the skies of enemy fighter planes to clear the way for Allied bombers.
Finally, the upcoming DLC will offer a brand new chapter in the Nazi Zombie saga as Marie, Drostan, Olivia, and Jefferson find themselves in the heart of Nazi Germany set to confront Doktor Straub and his monster army.
Much like previous DLC, The War Machine will launch first on PlayStation 4 on April 10, followed by other platforms around a month later.
