In The Resistance DLC pack, players will fight in iconic
World War II locations, from Paris to Prague, all centered around
historic uprisings in three new Multiplayer maps and an all-new
high-octane War Mode map.
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
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.
The Resistance DLC pack also features the newest horror-filled
chapter in the co-operative Nazi Zombies saga, The Darkest Shore.
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
As part of The Resistance community event, which kicked off on
Jan. 23 and runs through Feb. 27, all Call of Duty: WWII players
