Activision has released a trailer for the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII DLC, The Resistance. An in-game event is also taking place, beginning next week on the 23rd, leading up to the release on January 30th and continuing until February 27th.
This is a free event, so even if you aren’t picking up The Resistance, (but why aren’t you?!) players can still take part.
The event features free content, available to all players, such as the new Resistance Division, new weapons and uniforms used in uprisings. The event includes limited-time game mode events and rotating 2XP playlists across multiplayer, War Mode, and Zombies.
Those who join the Resistance Division will find the Tactical Knife Skill, a new 9mm SAP Pistol, as well as the ability to scramble enemy maps.
Prop Hunt is the features game mode, requiring players to “master the skills of stealth.” During the event, Prop Hunt has players hide themselves as everyday items strewn throughout the war zone. The other team will try find them. Like a crazy game of “hide and go seek”. A nice change of pace and lighthearted fun!
Another featured game mode is the classic Call of Duty mode Demolition. Resistance fighters are tasked with placing bombs behind enemy lines. Players will need to spearhead an assault, plant a bomb, and defend it.
Those who log-in weekly will receive a free Resistance Supply Drop. Players should visit Captain Butcher at the Headquarters to grab their reward.
Butcher will also provided the opportunity to complete Resistance Collections, and sign up for Contracts and acquire special orders. These grant new weapons, Supply Drops, XP boosts, Armory Credits, and more.
Finally, be sure to unlock the limited-time Resistance-themed Collection Rewards before the event ends on February 27. Doing so will earn the player special Resistance-themed variants of the Orso SMG, the Volkssturmgewehr Assault Rifle, and the Combat Knife.
Once the Resistance Community Event ends, the weapons will no longer be available so be sure to grab them!
Here is the whole schedule for the event:
It adds three new multiplayer maps, Anthropoid (Prague, Czechoslovakia), Occupation (Resistance remake, German-occupied Paris), and Valkyrie (Masurian Woods, East Prussia).
The Darkest Shore is also included, a new Zombies chapter.
