Early Thoughts On The New Call Of Duty WW2 War Mode Map
The second Call Of Duty WW2 DLC pack, The War Machine has been live for a day or two now on PlayStation 4 and while I have not had as much time to play it all as I would have liked, I have managed to play through a few rounds of the new War Mode map, Operation Husky.
I was a little ignorant on this going in, despite learning a lot about World War II in high school. I had no idea that this was an actual mission that took place during World War II and that is the inspiration for this new War Mode map.
Raven Software was the co-developer for this new War Mode mission and I think that the whole team that worked on this have done a great job. The idea of this new mission is that you need to get the intel, transmit the intel and then protect bombers while the Axis are trying o blow them away. Of course, the new dogfight section that has been added here is getting the most attention and rightfully so.
While I have only played a few rounds, I have enjoyed what I have played and even though, we did get to fly a plane in the campaign. What they have done here is quite different, as you are playing against other people, it feels far more intense. The sections that lead up to this are what you would expect, I do not mean that in a bad way, however, if you have spent a lot of time with the other missions in War Mode, you will feel right at home here. Once again, working as a team is the key to a successful mission.
I plan on spending a lot more time with Operation Husky this weekend and while I have enjoyed what I have experienced so far, I must be honest and say that it is lacking the wow factor that Operation Intercept had in the first DLC pack, especially with that final train segment.
