Call of Duty: WWII has officially revealed its third DLC pack, United Front, and it turns out that some of our guesses about the expansion based on the recently leaked trophies were pretty spot on.
United Front will include three new multiplayer maps, a new War Mode mission, and the next chapter in WWII‘s Nazi Zombie campaign.
The first map will finally introduce the iconic battle of Stalingrad to Call of Duty: WWII. Stalingrad will feature two main bases with sniper perches that over look the center of the snowy map, while underground sewers will allow for some interesting flanks.
The second map, Monte Cassino, is set below a mountaintop monastery in a “war-torn village” with cliffside pathways and a lot of vertical options.
The third map, Market Garden, sounds like one of the game’s most immersive maps yet. Taking place in a destroyed Dutch mansion, Market Garden will include the sounds of bombs dropping in the distance, the sight of a downed Allied plane, and an authentic-looking field hospital outside the mansion.
The new War Mode mission, Operation Supercharge, will have attacking players airdrop into Tunisia where they must capture supplies from a Nazi-occupied village before bombing a transport bridge and capturing entrenched fortifications.
As expected, the next Nazi Zombies mission is called “Tortured Path” and will task General Rideau and a small, elite team with transporting the remaining pieces of Emperor Barbarossa’s sword “to the edge of the world” where they can “deliver a final death to the Undying.” Considering we still have one more DLC pack after this, we’d be surprised if it was truly the “final death” of the game’s zombies, but we’ll see.
United Front is launching for PlayStation 4 on June 26th and then 30 days later for Xbox One and PC. Call of Duty: WWII will offer one final DLC pack following United Front before the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and its controversial decision to lock that game’s DLC behind a season pass.
