Call of Duty: WW2 Will Let You Play Shadow War Season Pass Content Without a Season Pass, Here's How

Call of Duty: WW2 gets weird with its next DLC pack.

Call of Duty: WW2 announced its fourth DLC pack today called Shadow War. The new expansion includes three new multiplayer maps, a new War Mode mission, and the final episode of the Nazi Zombies campaign. For a limited time, players will only need to party-up with someone with the Season Pass to enjoy all the DLC content, even if they themselves don't have a season pass.

The three new multiplayer maps include: Airship set high up in the alps with plenty of perilous falls, the Chancellery which is a night map set in a nice French courtyard, and Excavation, located in an Algerian mine surrounded by rock and rubble.

For the new War Mode mission there's Operation Arcane which takes place in a secret Nazi research facility. Allied Forces will try and uncover the lab's secrets which is filled with strange things like UFOs and occult items. Remember when Call of Duty: WW2 was going to be the serious entry into the series?

The final chapter in the Nazi Zombies mode is called Frozen Dawn and will require players to obtain the Sword of Barbarossa to end the zombie hordes. Explore the lost city underground to get your hands on what the developers say are "some of the most powerful weapons in the history of wonder weapons."

The big surprise with the new DLC pack is that from August 28 to October 28, players without a season pass can party-up with one person with a season pass and share its content. Just make the season pass holder the party leader and start enjoying Shadow War content and multiplayer maps.

Call of Duty: WW2 is Sledgehammer's Call of Duty game from 2017. Activision is currently gearing up Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 which will be multiplayer focused with no single-player mode. There's also a battle royale mode coming out called Blackout. A beta is scheduled for next month.
