Now Playing: Call Of Duty: WWII - The War Machine DLC 2 Trailer

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Call of Duty: WWII's next DLC pack is coming soon, and it adds a handful of multiplayer maps and a new Zombies scenario. It also includes a new map for War, the game's asymmetric, stage-based competitive mode, and this map introduces a brand-new mechanic: dogfighting.

For the first time, Call of Duty: WWII will let you pilot a plane and fight other players in the skies. Operation Husky, as the War Mode map is called, tasks the Allied team to assault an Axis position in Sicily. It's actually inspired by the real-life Operation Husky, which involved the Allies taking control of Sicily from Mussolini's forces.

The first task in-game is to retrieve intelligence, and the Allies are given a limited number of Molotov Cocktails to help them attack. Next, they have to push the Axis back and take over a radio station in order to transmit the intel. Finally, if the Allies are successful, the third stage puts all players in fighter planes. The Allies must defend their bombers, and the Axis must take them down. You can read more about the map on the PlayStation blog.

The full DLC pack, called The War Machine, launches on April 10 for PS4. It'll arrive about a month later on Xbox One and PC. The War Machine will be available for $15, or as part of the Season Pass for $50 / £40 / AU $65 which also grants access to the first expansion, The Resistance.

Never understood why it’s called dogfighting. Dogs don’t wizz around in the air firing bullets at each other. It’s more like.. Plane Lancing.
