Call of Duty: WWII’s Next Zombies Update Is a Three-Map Battle Across Infected Europe
Call of Duty: WWII's latest Nazi Zombies update, entitled The Tortured Path, is going to be by far its biggest yet. Past updates have included a single new map, but The Tortured Path will include three, as you embark on a multistage battle against the undead across Europe. Check out a trailer for The Tortured Path.
Your goal in The Tortured Path is to survive 10 rounds, while taking on various random objectives. Succeed, and you’ll move on to the next map. You’ll start in a zombie-infested Spanish village, move onto an overrun cargo ship, and finally Barbarossa’s creepy ritual site, where you can combine sword fragments from previous chapters into a powerful super weapon. It definitely seems like Sledgehammer is making some major changes to the tone and play style of Nazi Zombies – you can check out some The Tortured Path gameplay, courtesy of YouTuber SmartGuy, below.
The Tortured Path is part of Call of Duty: WWII's third DLC pack, United Front. Here’s what else it contains:
New Multiplayer Maps
- Market Garden- Set in the Netherlands, this map brings intense tight-quarters combat with gunfights waiting around every corner. What was once an opulent mansion is now in war-torn shambles as flames begin to overtake the structure. In the distance, you can see and hear bombs dropping, while all around you is the evidence of the war. From the Allied fighter plane downed in the river, to the makeshift field hospital in one of the outbuildings, the team at Sledgehammer Games has put extra care and detail in immersing players into an authentic scene from the War.
- Monte Cassino - Join the Italian campaign in Monte Cassino. Nestled below a previously-peaceful mountaintop monastery, this war-torn village offers rich verticality with rooftop vantage points and sneaky flank paths along the cliffs.
- Stalingrad - Stalingrad, based on the largest confrontation in World War II history, features two main bases located on opposite sides of a war-torn city. Snipers can focus on securing key perches to control the map’s center, while run-and-gunners can sneak through the underground sewers to flank behind enemy lines.
Named after the Second Battle of El Alamein, Field Marshal Montgomery and the Allied Forces pushed the Germans and Italians to retreat from their last significant defensive position in southern Tunisia. In this all new mission, the Allies airdrop into Tunisia and push into a Nazi-occupied village to capture key supplies, then cripple the enemy by detonating a key transport bridge. They then make the final knock-out blow by capturing entrenched Axis fortifications.
Call of Duty: WWII is available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The United Front and The Tortured Path hit PS4 tomorrow (June 26) – PC and Xbox should get the DLC approximately a month later.
