Call of Duty: WWII will take players to a darker place in its upcoming fourth expansion, Shadow War.
WWII‘s Shadow War expansion was revealed on the official PlayStation Blog, with a trailer teasing all of the new content coming our way. Starting with the three new multiplayer maps, Shadow War will take players to a variety of new European locals. Airship is set around an airship (appropriately) high in the Alps. Chancellery is set in a similarly eponymous locale, as fighting goes down in a French Chancellery at night. Finally, Excavation will take players to an Algerian mine.
A new War mode map is getting added to the fray, titled Operation Arcane. This new map will have players embark on a mission through a secret enemy research facility in the Austrian mountains. As the name suggests, the mission will involve some “unconventional” tactics, with bonuses like Tesla Guns and super-soldier serums that teams can use to their advantage. Finally, Shadow War continues the saga of WWII‘s Zombies mode. In Frozen Dawn, survivors will dive into the darkness of a lost city, using new weapons and secrets to dismantle its sinister cult.
Shadow War‘s full trailer can be checked out below. Non-DLC owners will be able to enjoy its content until October 28th by simply teaming up with season pass owners through the new Party Up Map Access.
Call of Duty: WWII‘s Shadow War expansion drops August 28th on PlayStation 4, with the Xbox One and PC releases coming approximately one month after. Unfortunately, Activision is still sticking to its precious timed-exclusivity for the time being.
