CALL OF DUTY WWII: 'The Resistance' Released Today


Today Call of Duty has released its first DLC pack for the game. Titled ‘The Resistance’, the pack includes a slew of new things to the game including three new multiplayer maps and an all-new “War Mode”, a multiplayer experience aimed to reflect the spirit of the citizens and soldiers who fought for freedom during WWII.  Along with this the game will be releasing a new Zombies map called “The Darkest Shore”.

It just so happens that all of this is being released during the Resistance community event that last from January 23rd to February 27th. The community event is a five week celebration that new gear, new game modes, and Supply Drop content available to everyone.

In the DLC pack players will be able to play in new Iconic WWII locations all revolving around different uprisings that happened during the war

Valkyrie – Located in the Masurian Woods, East Prussia, this map was inspired by The Wolf’s Lair – The Fuhrers Eastern-front headquarters during Operation Barbarossa – the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union.  This is a medium-sized map with multiple overwatch positions and mounted machine guns.
Anthropoid – Based in Prague, Czechoslovakia, this map is inspired by Operation Anthropoid – the famous assassination attempt on a high-ranking German officer during World War II.  This map is divided by a river, with long-flanking paths that can be used by snipers for ranged attacks.
Occupation – In this remake of a classic Call of Duty® map, players battle through the streets and shops of German-occupied Paris during WWII.  Nearby homes and storefronts lend defensive positions for ambush and recovery.
Operation Intercept – Outside of St Lo, France, the next War Mode experience, developed in partnership with Raven Software, leads you on an urban rescue mission to save Resistance fighters being transported by train.  The first objective on the Allied side is freeing the fighters, followed by the destruction of key communication equipment, and ends with stopping a train.

What I am personally most excited for, as well as most people who play CoD:WWII is the new Zombie map. The map is staged after the disaster of Mittelburg and seems to be an exciting location to add to the Zombie repertoire.

Only days after the horrific disaster of Mittelburg, the crew has received intel that suggests Doktor Straub is on an island just north of Germany. Blanketed in fog, this island is surrounded by enemy air and sea power – and crawling with the Undead.  Marie, Drostan, Olivia and Jefferson will need to battle all this and more to uncover the mysteries hidden within.

Here is the trailer for the Resistance DLC pack to get you excited for the release of the new content. 

Nixing most everything in the DLC I am personally excited more for the new zombie mode than anything else. Though the prop hunt themed community event has definitely tickled my fancy so to speak. What are you most excited for with the release of this new content?
