Call of Duty: WWII drops explosive trailer for final 'Shadow War' DLC

Activision has broken cover on the final DLC pack for Call of Duty: WWII, and things are about to get explosive. Called "Shadow War," the pack will bring new multiplayer maps, a fresh War Mode, and the conclusion to the Nazi Zombies campaign.

Alongside an explosive trailer, details for the pack were revealed over on the PlayStation Blog. In terms of new multiplayer maps, players will get to check out Airship, Chancellery, and Excavation. Airship takes the fight to the Alps, where you'll fight for control of a docked zeppelin. Chancellery, meanwhile, sees players fighting over the titular structure in the dead of night. Finally, Excavation will see players doing battle in an Algerian mine.

As for the new War Mode, Operation Arcane is described thusly:

On top of these Multiplayer experiences, there is also Operation Arcane, a new War Mode Mission that will take players deep within a secret enemy research facility in the Austrian mountains. Allied Forces players will be tasked with infiltrating this lab, stealing enemy secrets and schematics and finally destroying whatever classified technology remains in a hanger full of UFOs.

For fans of Nazi Zombies, this DLC will also bring the epic story to a close, giving players access to powerful new weapons as part of the final chapter, "The Frozen Dawn."

As per usual, PlayStation 4 players will get first dibs on Shadow War, with the launch scheduled for August 28. There's no word on an exact release date for Xbox One, but it will likely land around a month later is past is prologue.

Call of Duty: WWII is available now for as little as $31.
