Description

An expansion pack for Call of Duty.

This adds three new single-player campaigns as well as expanded multiplayer modes. There are 13 new single-player levels, plus an enhanced multiplayer experience with 11 new maps and 3 new modes of play, also including vehicles.

You are again looking through the eyes of American, British and Russian soldiers. As a US soldier in the 101st Airborne you are in the Battle of the Bulge. Afterwards you start as a British airman in a B-17 plane, operating the board weapons. After your plane was shot down and you escape with a parachute, you sabotage a German train together with some members of the Dutch resistance. Impressed by your skills, a SOE-Officer recruits you for an attack of a coast fortress to support the invasion of Sicily (known as Operation Husky). The Russian campaign plays during and after the Battle of Kursk, the largest tank fight so far.

There are a range of new weapons, which are:
  • Binoculars (call in an artillery strike)
  • M1919A6 (US light machine gun)
  • Bazooka (US anti-tank weapon)
  • Tokarev SVT-40 (Russian semi-automatic rifle)
  • Degtyarev-Pekhotny 28 (Russian machine gun)
  • Tokarev TT-33 (Russian side arm)
  • Silenced Sten Mk II (British sub-machine gun)
  • Webley Mk 4 (British side arm)
  • Gewehr 43 (German semi-automatic rifle)
  • Maschinengewehr 34 (German machine gun)
  • Panzerschreck (German anti-tank weapon)
  • Flammenwerfer 35 (German flamethrower)
As a new ability, you can sprint for a short time. Using sprint, you speed increases greatly, but you are not able to shoot.
