Call of Duty: WWII‘s next DLC was unveiled last week, and now, we’re getting a few more details about what’s in store.
A new trailer for the expansion, The War Machine, shows off the game’s new locations and maps, as well as a glimpse of what’s in store for Zombies and the new War mission, Operation Husky.
A post from PlayStation Blog goes into more detail on the latter. Operation Husky is the latest War Mode map, and it’s based on the real-life Allied invasion of Siciliy of the same code name. There are three objectives that the Allies must complete before they can declare victory—and three points at which the Axis soldiers have a chance to stop them.
At the start of Operation Husky, Allied players must collect three pieces of intel from an Axis-controlled building. Each side has a limited number of resources. Allied forces can throw Molotov cocktails to help push forward, while Axis fighters can set up tripwires to defend their base. Axis fighters can also try to construct a few walls, though entrances can’t be fully sealed.
If the Allies secure all three pieces of intel, they’ll move on to the second objective: to take control of a nearby radio station to transmit the information back. Allied soldiers must either use demolition charges to push forward or storm a machine gun next, while Axis defenders again have the chance to build more walls and defenses, including s-mines.
If the Allied forces triumph there, phase three will begin. This phase is wildly different from the first two, since every player will be placed in the cockpit of a fighter plane for a massive dogfight. Allied bombers will attempt to successfully complete a bombing run and must protect their allies, while Axis pilots try to clear the skies to prevent the bombing run from reaching completion.
The War Machine DLC pack launches first on PlayStation 4 on April 10th. It’s expected to arrive on Xbox One and PC approximately one month later.
