Activision has the new DLC prepping for release first on the PlayStation 4 and then followed with an outing on PC and Xbox One. However, before the DLC expansion pack drops, there are some details on the new event and a ton of new content gamers can expect from Call of Duty: WWII.
The new trailer for the upcoming event precedes the Call of Duty: WWII Resistance DLC, and it was posted up over on the official Call of Duty YouTube channel. It clocks in at just two and a half minutes, and covers everything you can expect from the new DLC, along with a special event which is set to go live on January 23rd later this week,
The trailer starts with a brief machinima showcasing some in-game action as the Third Reich takes on various resistance members from Poland, Italy, and France. The special event will start on January 23rd and will run all the way through February 27th.
But that's not all. The new event will also feature brand new weapon drops that players can acquire, along with all new competitive game modes. The most significant part of the event is that there's an all new faction for every player to encounter, whether they're on Xbox or PlayStation or PC, and it's known as the Resistance.
Yes, there's a faction named after the upcoming DLC pack, which is due to drop on January 30th for Call of Duty: WWII players. The Resistance faction comes with some brand new gear, including a serrated hand knife and a small pistol designed for close quarters combat encounters. We briefly get to see the weapons in action as the player races through the war-torn city, stabbing and shooting the German troops.
In order to access the new weapons, you'll need to complete the all-new special order. This includes participating in 50 multiplayer matches throughout the event. That may sound like a lot but you might be able to burn through them quickly over the course of a lazy weekend. Just don't expect the Mrs to be a-okay with you not helping with the laundry or cleaning up the dishes.
Some of the new weapons in the Call of Duty: WWII event includes the Volkssturmgewehr, a German machine gun with an interesting design and a long clip. There's also the Orso sub-machine gun, which looks like it was supposed to be a bolt-action rifle but decided midway through its birth to change species and adopt a sub-machine gun moniker instead.
The Demolition game mode is also making a return to Call of Duty for those of you interested in mixing up some of the gameplay. You'll be able to dive right in starting January 23rd.
