Call of Duty: WWII’s The War Machine DLC Launches Its Attack Today
Call of Duty: WWII’s second big DLC pack, The War Machine, is available now! The update includes the usual handful of multiplayer maps and a Zombies update, as well as the new Operation Husky, which adds aerial dogfighting to the game. You can check out an action-packed The War Machine trailer, below.
Starting today, players can join the war effort to combat the large-scale escalation of Axis power in Call of Duty: WWII – The War Machine. Players will globetrot across Egypt, France, Germany, and Sicily on three new Multiplayer maps, take on an all-new War Mode multiplayer mission, and survive the undead in the newest Nazi Zombies saga chapter, The Shadowed Throne.
Operation Husky – Join the Allies in the invasion of Sicily, one of the major blows against the Axis War Machine. Under the cover of darkness, gather and transmit intel on sensitive enemy ports and then – for the first time in Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer – take to the skies in a fighter plane to protect bomber squadrons on their way to destroy the targets.
The Shadowed Throne – Following Doktor Straub’s trail after narrowly escaping the zombie-infested island, the crew travels to a destroyed Berlin, Germany. Doktor Straub’s army is hellbent on purging his city of the Allied invaders. Players will join Marie, Drostan, Olivia, and Jefferson on their descent into madness in a city warped with terror, blood and war, as Nazi Zombies step out from the shadows of history.
Here’s an individual look at the new multiplayer maps included in The War Machine:
Egypt – Call of Duty: WWII heads to North Africa for the first time in this all-new Multiplayer map. Fight in and around the ancient pyramids at Giza, and battle for an interior temple flanked by tight tunnels adorned with ancient calligraphy. Every playstyle can succeed in this varied and dynamic new map.
Dunkirk – Face off on the beach and boardwalk of the French seaside city of Dunkirk. This map features a large, open and dangerous beach area flanked by tight building interiors. Sniping can be effective here, though aggressive running and gunning can also pay off, making every engagement unique in this historic battleground.
V-2 – This small, fast-paced map set in a rocket development and test site located in rural Germany features a launch tower in the center that provides a focal point and an opportunity to grab an elevated sightline on unsuspecting opponents. Explosive action is guaranteed here, in more ways than one.
A big update to Call of Duty: WWII’s Divisions is also being released alongside The War Machine content today. Certain skills, like the SMG suppressor, shotgun incendiary shells, rifle bayonet, and pistol tactical knife, are now standard loadout attachments. Tweaks are also coming to Basic Training and a bunch of other aspects of Divisions – get the full rundown in the video below.
The War Machine DLC is available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 right now for $15 or as part of the $50 Call of Duty: WWII season pass.
