SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 26, 2018--
Starting today, Allied forces retaliate as players come together to
fight the enemy in Call of Duty®: WWII– United Front,
available now, first on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system.
With today’s release of the third expansion pack for Call of Duty:
WWII, players will experience three new Multiplayer maps that
take place in iconic and historic World War II locales, an all-new War
Mode Multiplayer mission set in North Africa and the newest Nazi Zombies
saga chapter, The Tortured Path, where players must attempt to
slow the Axis advance of the Undead.
Market Garden – One of the largest airborne operations in the
European Theatre, players must maintain control of an Allied mansion
base. Set in the Netherlands, this fast-paced map brings intense
tight-quarters combat with gunfights waiting around every corner. At the
center of the map is a once-opulent mansion, now devastated in shambles.
Monte Cassino – Join the Italian campaign in this new Multiplayer
map that takes place at a critical site of historic Allied
assaults. Nestled below a mountaintop monastery, this war-torn village
offers rich verticality with rooftop vantage points and sneaky flank
paths along the cliffs. Players will need to stay on their toes while
they traverse this map, as threats can come from anywhere.
Stalingrad – Based on the largest confrontation in World War II
history, this medium-to-large-sized map features two main bases located
on opposite sides of a demolished industrial district. Snipers can focus
on securing key perches to control the map’s center, while
run-and-gunners can sneak through the underground sewers to flank behind
Operation Supercharge – Named after the Second Battle of El
Alamein, Allied Forces must push the enemy across Africa and away from
their southern defensive position in this all-new War Mode mission.
Allies must air-drop into Tunisia and push into a Nazi-occupied village
to capture key supplies, then cripple the enemy by detonating a key
transport bridge. Players then make the final knock-out blow by
capturing entrenched Axis fortifications.
TheUnited FrontDLC pack also features the co-operative Nazi
Zombies saga update, The Tortured Path. As Allied forces crumble
under the relentless advance of the Final Reich, General Rideau decides
to take one last, dangerous gambit: to personally lead a small, unmarked
caravan across the 2,000 miles of smoldering, infested land that stands
between Berlin and the Allied-controlled port of Malaga. From there, he
and his crew face a treacherous voyage across icy southern waters and
U-boat blockades in a mission to transport the remaining pieces of
Emperor Barbarossa’s legendary sword to the edge of the world. Players
must uncover the lost forges of ancient Thule, make the sword whole
again, and also deliver a final death to the Undead in this all-new
