After an initial stop in Paris, the Call of Duty: WWII DLC tour is taking players to Northern Africa, high above Italy, and beyond in the game’s second post-launch expansion.
Titled The War Machine, WWII‘s next expansion will introduce three new multiplayer maps, a new War mission, and a new Nazi Zombies survival experience. According to the expansion’s announcement post, the multiplayer maps will take players to the iconic battle at Dunkirk, a German V-2 rocket facility, and across the deserts of Egypt.
The expansion’s new War mission, designated Operation Husky, depicts the Allied invasion of Sicily, from which the mission gets its name. Players will need to focus on gathering and transmitting intel, and the mission ends with the game’s first opportunity for competitive dogfighting. For Nazi Zombie players, the new The Shadowed Throne experience will have players fighting off the undead in the heart of Berlin, although it seems a little strange that the expansion is passing up its Egyptian local as a prime Zombies setting.
The War Machine launches on April 10th for PlayStation 4 players, with its release on Xbox One and PC expected approximately one month later.
It is currently unclear if the reveal of The War Machine is the major announcement that publisher Activision teased late last week. Fans were promised something big before the end of the month, and while this could fit the bill, most fans were expecting something along the lines of the recently leaked Modern Warfare 2 Remastered. The DLC’s announcement post was written by the same editorial manager that offered up the original tease, suggesting this is the reveal after all, but there are still a few days left in the month, so we’ll have to wait and see.
