The Call of Duty and Call of Duty 2 map of Carentan has been confirmed as a returning bonus map in this year’s Call of Duty: WWII.
Carentan was an urban environment set within a French town that had players fight for control over a German stronghold. The map is being updated and rereleased for enjoyment in WWII, dropping as a bonus map on launch day for all season pass holders and those that picked up the Digital Deluxe Edition.

The map’s official announcement post doesn’t make any mention of the map releasing for those that aren’t bothering with the season pass or Digital Deluxe Edition, but considering the post never mentions the map being exclusive to the season pass or special edition either, other players can likely expect to play it sometime after launch. Those that do wish to take advantage of the season pass will enjoy four DLC packs that introduce new multiplayer maps, War mode missions, and new chapters in the game’s cooperative Zombies saga.
Carentan was previously hinted at in a leak from WWII‘s recent PC multiplayer beta. Due to an alleged bug, one beta player gained access to a selection of otherwise locked-off content in the game, which apparently included the shooter’s full multiplayer map list. The list only contained 10 maps, one of which being Carentan, which we now know to be a bonus map. Assuming no maps were left out of that build, this would mean WWII‘s base multiplayer map selection clocks in at an unimpressive nine arenas.
Call of Duty: WWII is slated to launch November 3rd on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
