Activision will release Call of Duty: WWII's first DLC pack in January. The DLC will bring new maps, a new mode and a continuation of the Nazi Zombies saga. PlayStation 4 owners will be the first to give the DLC a go.

Call of Duty: WWII's first DLC pack is due out in February. "The Resistance" will add the usual DLC stuff: some maps, a fresh game mode and a new Zombies chapter. This wouldn't be a DLC article if we didn't go into detail about the things I just listed, so just keep reading.

The actual layout of the three new maps is unknown, but the folks at Activision did put forward a couple of descriptions. The first map is called Anthropoid and it's based in Prague. The map is inspired by Operation Anthropoid - the famous assassination attempt on a high-ranking German officer during World War II. Anthropoid will provide a center lane divided by a river.

Occupation is the name of the second map. It's a remake of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer map Resistance. You'll get to frolic around the the streets and shops of German-occupied Paris during WWII. Lucky. There will be plenty opportunities for ambush and recovery.

The third map is a medium-sized map with gameplay focused around a "dangerous center lane". Its name is Valkyrie and it is set in the Masurian Woods, East Prussia during the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union.

Call of Duty: WWII's War Mode is getting a new operation. Operation Intercept will take the players on a rescue mission to save Resistance fighters being transported by train.

And finally, the moment you've all been waiting for: the next chapter in the Nazi Zombies saga - The Darkest Shore. Set after the events in Mittelburg, the story follows the crew as they receive intel that suggests Doktor Straub is on an island just north of Germany. Marie, Drostan, Olivia, and Jefferson then boldly go into the foggy unknown.

The Resistance will be available to PlayStation 4 owners on 30 January, and everyone else will have to wait the usual timespan necessary to inconvenience fans while messing with the competition.
