Call of Duty: WWII Shadow War DLC Wraps Up Nazi Zombies, Maps Can Be Shared With Friends
The fourth, and final, Call of Duty: WWII DLC pack has been unveiled. The update, entitled Shadow War, includes the usual handful of multiplayer maps, the last chapter in the Nazi Zombies storyline, as well as Operation Arcane, a new War Mode mission which tasks players with infiltrating a Nazi research facility deep within the Austrian mountains. You can check out an action-packed Shadow War trailer and descriptions of the new MP maps, below.
Set in a secret enemy base high in the Alps, Airship takes the battle to new heights. Fight for control of the docked zeppelin, or take your chances running along a treacherous cliff, where one slip up can lead to an unfortunate trip down the mountain that will end in a respawn.
The enemy forces have taken hold of a French Chancellery, but they won’t expect a chaotic firefight in the middle of the night. Wrest control of the stronghold’s main courtyard, while covering your team from the flanking pathways to the map’s main area for this epic night-time brawl behind enemy lines.
In an Algerian mine, the enemy stockpiled priceless art and gold from their European conquests. The battle will ensue around these pillaged goods, the dunes of a tank graveyard, and rock outcroppings scattered around the map.
And here’s the rundown on Operation Arcane and the final Zombies chapter:
Operation Arcane, is a new War Mode Mission that will take players deep within a secret enemy research facility in the Austrian mountains. Allied Forces players will be tasked with infiltrating this lab, stealing enemy secrets and schematics and finally destroying whatever classified technology remains in a hanger full of UFOs. Of course, being that it is a research facility, there are a few clandestine weapons, such as the Tesla Gun, and mysterious super soldier serums that players can use to help turn the tide of battle.
The Frozen Dawn
Acquiring the Sword of Barbarossa has not put an end to the undead threat. A darker and more powerful threat lurks in the depths of Thule. In the unfathomable depths of a lost city, our heroes are humanity’s last hope of ending the cult of Thule. Luckily, they will have a few secret weapons to help put the ancient rulers of the world to rest.
Interestingly, Shadow War also includes the new “Party Up Map Access” feature, which lets players share maps with friends who haven’t yet bought the update. If you own the Call of Duty: WWII Season Pass, all you have to do is start an in-game Party and all the friends you invite can play with you on the new MP and War Mode maps. This feature is only available from August 28 to October 28 and only applies to Shadow War maps. It’s a bit odd that map sharing is only available for this one update, but I have a feeling we may see more of the feature in the future. Could Activision be planning to include map sharing in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4?
Call of Duty: WWII is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The Shadow War DLC launches on August 28 for $15 or as part of the $50 Call of Duty: WWII season pass.
