Today, the leakers have more information for the community. Reddit user Nanikos, in their recent post, lists everything that will either be available at the time of launch or will roll out with future updates as a part of other seasons.

All-new missions in Campaign Mode

Since the game is set around events of WWII, the campaign mission’s names correspond to the events. The locations players will travel to will also be the ones that experienced the war from the forefront.

  • Numa Numa Trail
  • The Battle Of El Alamein
  • The Battle of Midway
  • Phoenix
  • Stalingrad
  • The Fourth Reich
  • The Rats of Tobruk
  • Operation Tonga
  • Lady Nightingale

New Modes to Master

The game will also feature a bunch of new Multiplayer game modes apart from the standard ones. Not much is known about these modes, but the tentative list is:

  • Arms Race
  • Control
  • Crawl
  • Minefield
  • Patrol

The game will also introduce new unreleased killstreaks, and they do look promising. Air Superiority and Local Informants will be the two making their way to the game. The former will let players perform three strafing runs across certain areas of the map. While the former, as the name suggests, will give the location of all enemies on the map for the lifetime of the streak.

The Killing Machines: Operators

The developers decided to invest a lot of their time in the Operators this time around. The game will welcome 10 operators from every origin, each with a distinct melee weapon and special execution style.

  • Beatrice (French)- Weapon Cleaver
  • Constanze (Latin) – Weapon Club
  • Solange (French/Latin) – Weapon Axe
  • Shigernori (Japanese) – Weapon Katana
  • Padmavati (Hindi) – Weapon Machete
  • Halima (Arabic) – Weapon Bilao

The other four are Isabella, Lewis, Francis, and Liu, but there is no other information available for these operators.
