You know what I love about the winter holidays? Shooting people in various 20th century European locales. If you too enjoy sending small chunks of metal through the air at high velocity towards a fellow human being s vital organs, perhaps you will like the upcoming DLC for Call of Duty: WWII. It s called Resistance and has three new multiplayer maps, a new mission for war mode and another chapter for the daft Nazi zombies mode. Inspect the liver-puncturing possibilities in the trailer below. (more…)

Call of Duty®: WWII

Call of Duty: WW2 has announced The Resistance, the shooter's first portion of DLC that promises three new multiplayer maps, a new War Mode and the next chapter of its Nazi zombies offshoot, named The Darkest Shore. 

From front to back, the three incoming maps include Anthropoid, Occupation and Valkyrie. Set in Prague, Anthropoid depicts the titular Operation Anthropoid assassination attempt of two high-ranking Nazi officers in 1942. This map includes a central dividing river with long-flanking paths, perfect for ranged sniper attacks. 

Valkyrie, on the other hand, is inspired by Hitler's Eastern Front HQ, otherwise known as The Wolf's Lair. Here, expect a medium-sized map with a "dangerous centre lane" targeted by mounted machine guns. Lastly, Occupation is a remake of the classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Resistance multiplayer map—complete with long, winding streets and storefronts fit for hiding out in.

The Resistance DLC's War Mode, Operation Intercept, tasks players with rescuing resistance members being transported by train. Here, you'll free the fighters, take down communications equipment, and, ultimately, halt the train. 

More on that is detailed here: 

As explained above, The Darkest Shore zombie mode kicks off in Mittelburg wherein your crew learns that Doktor Straub is operating on an island north of Germany. "Blanketed in fog, this island is surrounded by Nazi air and sea power," so reads this post, "and crawling with the Undead." Good luck with that. 

Call of Duty: WW2's The Resistance DLC is without a concrete PC launch date, however is expected to follow its PS4 debut on January 30. The base game also rolled out a PC update yesterday, targeting ranked play and multiplayer, among other things. Check out its patch notes in full over here

Hey PC community,

Thank you all for being so patient with us as we work on fixes for the game. We're excited to announce our first community event: WINTER SIEGE. We also have info about the next PC update coming to you this Friday.

WINTER SIEGE

Welcome to the Call of Duty: WWII Winter Siege Event, where winter has arrived in full force. Your mission begins in Headquarters, where the snow has already begun to fall. Captain Butcher, of the British Special Air Service forces has arrived at the Quartermaster with an inventory of cold weather gear suited for the frigid weeks ahead. Pick up your payroll, grab your winter contracts, gear up, and get ready to head into battle.

December 1944 was marked by bitterly cold weather across Europe. It is also remembered for the last major German offensive of World War II – The Battle of the Bulge. Cold, hungry, and tired, the Allied forces bore the brunt of the attack and incurred their hardest fighting of any operation during the war.

One of the first stops will be Carentan, France. Carentan is in the grip of a snow storm, and under siege by a counterinsurgent German Wehrmacht force. It will require all your training to liberate this important port city and a major crossroad for the Allied operations. Winter Carentan will be free for all players starting on Friday throughout the Winter Siege event. With Winter Mosh Pit and Gun Game modes coming, new winter weapons, gear, emblems, 2XP events, and more surprises, Winter Siege is packed with plenty of excitement throughout the month of December. Be sure to stay tuned to our channels for more information and announcements, beginning December 8th at 10AM PST. And for the full Winter Siege schedule of events visit https://www.callofduty.com/wwii/winter-siege.

PC UPDATE

We’re finalizing an update that will go live for the Call of Duty: WWII PC version on Friday, December 8 at 10AM PST. This update addresses some of the top observed community feedback on Steam and Reddit, and will activate PC Ranked Play – Season 1: The Placement Season. In addition, we’re activating the enhanced Emblem Editor feature and adding various fixes to improve Discord support. Be on the lookout for this update on Friday via our Steam forum with a full list of Game Updates.

When it comes to feedback, as always, it is greatly appreciated and extremely helpful for us as we continue to make updates and improve the game. So please continue reaching out to us and commenting on the game, whether it’s on Twitter @SHGames, Facebook, the WWII subreddit, or here on Steam. The more constructive, descriptive, and detailed – the better!

Much love,

The Sledgehammer Games Team

The tail-end of Steam’s Autumnal sale sees a few old favourites lingering with the usual suspects in the charts this week. The discounts that got them here are all gone now, but it’s only a couple of weeks now before everything goes completely bonkers for the Winter Sale, and you can expect to see all the same names deeply discounted once more.

Videogames’ extended voyage through the uncanny valley would go on for at least another couple of decades, I’d presumed until recently. Real, believable people conjured from our graphics cards would surely remain a pipedream for many hardware generations to come. Then I played Call of Duty: WW2, and the first cracks appeared in the walls of reality.

All of sudden, videogames can do faces. Amazing faces. Terrifying faces. (more…)

Call of Duty®: WWII

Despite its launch issues, Call of Duty: WW2 has spent the last few weeks getting its trenches in order. Now, developer Sledgehammer Games has announced its Thanksgiving double XP weekend will launch a day early, and that the previously delayed PC emblem editor will land on December 8. 

When it does it'll launch alongside the new Winter Carentan Map, within which the game's first Seasonal Community Event—named 'Winter Siege'—will take place. 

"One of the most beloved maps in Call of Duty history is now set in the cold and snowy winter of 1944 and will be free to all players for a limited time during the event and will be added to all MP game modes," says the developer. "Be sure to check out Domination and Hardpoint, they’re two of our studio favorites for Winter Carentan. We can’t wait to play online with you. Also, we have weekly Winter Siege rewards for players that join us throughout the event, and we’ll have more to share in the coming weeks."

WW2's Thanksgiving double XP weekend has also been brought forward—now set to kick off at 10am PT/6pm GMT today, and wrap up at the same time on Monday, November 27. 

Sledgehammer also notes a new update is due next week that will address map exploits and UI improvements among other things.
