Activision and Sledgehammer both continue to enjoy the performance of Call of Duty: WW2, a title that pulled them out of the pit after the poor performance of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare despite being packaged with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. In 2018, Sledgehammer is planning to build on the game's success with four DLC packs and the first, called The Resistance, is now available on Xbox One and PC.
The Resistance DLC already arrived on PS4 in January, but now Xbox and PC users get access to the following content:
- Valkyrie - Located in the Masurian Woods, East Prussia, this map was inspired by The Wolf's Lair - The Fuhrer's 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.
You can add The Resistance to your collection à la carte for $14.99 but it's also a part of the game's season pass, which retails for $49.99 but nets you access to all four DLC packs planned for 2018. Call of Duty: WW2 is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
