Activision and Sledgehammer Games have announced that the next Call of Duty WWII DLC, titled United Front will be coming on 26 June 2018. The DLC will bring three new maps, a new War Mode mission and more Zombies. The usual CoD stuff.

United front's new multiplayer maps will be Market Garden, Monte Cassino and Stalingrad. Market Garden's setting will be its eponymous operation which was one of the largest airborne operations in Europe during World War 2. Players will be tasked with holding off the Axis advances in order to maintain control of an Allied mansion base.

Monte Cassino will be the map that's set in Italy and bears the name of the village where it will take place. It is set below a mountaintop monastery and it will feature more verticality since there will be plenty of rooftop vantage points. While it may sound like a sniper's wet dream at first, Activision have also mentioned many "sneaky flank paths along the cliffs" that other players may use to ruin the campers' day.

The Stalingrad map will take players to Shanghai. Well no, but the name makes the setting so obvious that I couldn't skip a bad joke. It will feature two main bases located on the opposite sides of the map and it will apparently offer opportunities for both the sniper enthusiasts and the adrenaline junkies in different areas of the map suited for each of the two playstyles. You can even channel your inner Ninja Turtle by crawling through the sewers in order to get a drop on the snipers.

Operation Supercharge is named after the Second Battle of El Alamein where the Allies pushed the Axis forces out of their last significant defensive position in southern Tunisia. This mission will have players airdrop into Tunisia and push into a village occupied by the Nazi forces in order to capture supplies and destroy a bridge for no reason at all, since the next objective will be to deal the "final knock-out blow by capturing entrenched Axis fortifications". Might as well ruin Tunisia's infrastructure before kicking Hitler's cheerleaders out of the country, right?

Those who were eagerly waiting for the next chapter in the Nazi Zombies adventures will set out on a mission to transport the remaining pieces of Emperor Barbarossa's sword "to the edge of the world". Take that round-Earthers. This campaign will apparently take players across three new locations filled with zombie guts and hails of bullets.
