Activision unveils first glimpse at “The Darkest Shore,” the next Nazi Zombies chapter coming to Call of Duty: WWII

Call of Duty: WWII‘s The Resistance DLC Pack will be available to download through the PlayStation Store on January 30. In addition to three new multiplayer maps, the expansion will also include “The Darkest Shore,” a new chapter for the game’s Nazi Zombies co-op mode:

The Darkest Shore follows our heroes into the next chapter of their dangerous journey. 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 Nazi 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 the Darkest Shore.

The gruesome and gory first trailer for “The Darkest Shore” has been embedded above. Sadly, PC and Xbox One owners will likely have to wait until late February/early March to download the expansion.

Activision unveils The Resistance DLC Pack for Call of Duty: WWII

Players will be able to join The Resistance in the first downloadable expansion for Call of Duty: WWII.

Activision has announced that The Resistance DLC Pack will be available to download for the PS4 on January 30 (and on the PC and Xbox One a month later). The expansion will add three new multiplayer maps to Sledgehammer’s shooter, as well as a new War Mode scenario, and the next chapter in the Nazi Zombies co-op mode:

Multiplayer Maps in Call of Duty: WWII’s Resistance DLC Pack

  • 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 features a center lane divided by a river, with long-flanking paths that can be used by snipers for ranged attacks.
  • Occupation: In this remake of the classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer map Resistance, players battle through the streets and shops of German-occupied Paris during WWII. Long side streets encourage mid-range combat, with nearby homes and storefronts lending defensive positions for ambush and recovery.
  • Valkyrie: Located in the Masurian Woods, East Prussia, this map was inspired by The Wolf’s Lair, Hitler’s Eastern-front headquarters during Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union. This is a medium-sized map with gameplay focused around a dangerous center lane covered by multiple overwatch positions and mounted machine guns.

War Mode: Operation Intercept
Outside of St. Lo, France, our next War Mode experience leads us 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 ending with stopping a train.

Nazi Zombies: The Darkest Shore
The Darkest Shore follows our heroes into the next chapter of their dangerous journey. 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 Nazi 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 the Darkest Shore.

Activision unveils the return of Nazi Zombies in new Call of Duty: WWII trailer

As promised, Activision and Sledgehammer unveiled the brand new Nazi Zombies cooperative mode for Call of Duty: WWII during the first day of Comic-Con 2017.

The terrifying trailer includes voicework from a clearly-insane Udo Kier, but no appearances from the player-characters, who will be portrayed by David Tennant, Elodie Yung, Katheryn Winnick, and Ving Rhames:

Call of Duty: WWII – Nazi Zombies is a terrifying, new zombies cooperative experience that transports players into a labyrinth of chilling occult Nazi zombies experiments, and monstrous creations set mythically in World War II. The story unfolds as an international team peels back the vile layers of a malevolent plot masterminded by the Axis powers to harness unimaginable occult forces and create an invincible undead army. Featuring voices and likenesses, the global cast features David Tennant, Elodie Yung, Katheryn Winnick, Udo Kier, and Ving Rhames.

“With Nazi Zombies, we’re creating a frightening world full of terrifying characters and events that will make you jump and look over your shoulder. There’s an incredible amount of myth and lore, which our team has poured through in our development,” said Glen Schofield, a Studio Head at Sledgehammer Games. “This is unlike anything before, we’re taking players to some very dark, grim places in Nazi Zombies. This is one hell of a horror experience.”

Michael Condrey, another Studio Head at Sledgehammer Games added, “We couldn’t be more excited to showcase our reveal of Nazi Zombies here at San Diego Comic Con. It’s been great to return to creating a horror-based experience, and with Call of Duty, head back to the Nazi Zombies roots. The team at the studio is proud of the opportunity to deliver something special for the fans.”

Call of Duty: WWII will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 3.
