CALL OF DUTY: WWII ‘UNITED FRONT’ DLC PACK LAUNCHES TODAY
Call of Duty: WWII ushers in Summer Gaming Sessions with Three Exciting
New Multiplayer Maps, an All-New War Mode Mission ‘Operation Supercharge,’ and Nazi Zombies saga update ‘The Tortured Path’
June 27, 2018 – Starting today, Allied forces retaliate as players come together to fight the enemy in Call of Duty®: WWII – United Front, available now, first on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. With today’s release of the third expansion pack for Call of Duty: WWII, players will experience three new Multiplayer maps that take place in iconic and historic World War II locales, an all-new War Mode Multiplayer mission set in North Africa and the newest Nazi Zombies saga chapter, The Tortured Path, where players must attempt to slow the Axis advance of the Undead.
Market Garden – One of the largest airborne operations in the European Theatre, players must maintain control of an Allied mansion base. Set in the Netherlands, this fast-paced map brings intense tight-quarters combat with gunfights waiting around every corner. At the centre of the map is a once-opulent mansion, now devastated in shambles.
Monte Cassino – Join the Italian campaign in this new Multiplayer map that takes place at a critical site of historic Allied assaults. Nestled below a mountaintop monastery, this war-torn village offers rich verticality with rooftop vantage points and sneaky flank paths along the cliffs. Players will need to stay on their toes while they traverse this map, as threats can come from anywhere.
Stalingrad – Based on the largest confrontation in World War II history, this medium-to-large-sized map features two main bases located on opposite sides of a demolished industrial district. Snipers can focus on securing key perches to control the map’s centre, while run-and-gunners can sneak through the underground sewers to flank behind enemy lines.
Operation Supercharge – Named after the Second Battle of El Alamein, Allied Forces must push the enemy across Africa and away from their southern defensive position in this all-new War Mode mission. Allies must air-drop into Tunisia and push into a Nazi-occupied village to capture key supplies, then cripple the enemy by detonating a key transport bridge. Players then make the final knock-out blow by capturing entrenched Axis fortifications.
The United Front DLC pack also features the co-operative Nazi Zombies saga update, The Tortured Path. As Allied forces crumble under the relentless advance of the Final Reich, General Rideau decides to take one last, dangerous gambit: to personally lead a small, unmarked caravan across the 2,000 miles of smoldering, infested land that stands between Berlin and the Allied-controlled port of Malaga. From there, he and his crew face a treacherous voyage across icy southern waters and U-boat blockades in a mission to transport the remaining pieces of Emperor Barbarossa’s legendary sword to the edge of the world. Players must uncover the lost forges of ancient Thule, make the sword whole again, and also deliver a final death to the Undead in this all-new Zombies experience.
