Activision and Sledgehammer Games have provided us our first look at upcoming Call of Duty: WWII map, Carentan.
Carentan, one of the most beloved multiplayer maps in the Call of Duty franchise, is set to make it’s current-gen debut when Call of Duty: WWII launches this week. In the map, players fight through the destroyed buildings and streets of a war-torn French town. The map uses the same exact design from the original Call of Duty, which is a testament to how well designed the map was.
For context, the map has been in four Call of Duty titles, and not always as Carentan. This includes Call of Duty, Call of Duty: United, and Call of Duty 2. In 2007, the map was reimagined for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare as Chinatown. It would later be an easter egg in Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
Unfortunately, you’re going to need to shell out some serious cash to get this one map. Activision is locking the map behind the Season Pass, which means you’ll need to spend either $49.99 for the pass, or $99.99 for the Digital Deluxe Edition. It’s extremely disappointing to see a fan-favorite map being held hostage in such a horrible way.
Call of Duty: WWII is out November 3 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The first DLC pack, which was teased in the trailer, is titled ‘The Resistance,’ and hits PS4 first on January 30.
