Fan favorite Carentan will be back in Call of Duty: WWII, but not for everyone

Carentan, one of Call of Duty's most iconic multiplayer arenas, will be added to Call of Duty: WWII as a bonus map... only for season pass owners.

Call of Duty: WWII is going back to the roots of the series by taking players back to the fronts of World War II. Not only that, but also the game will let long-time fans fight once more on one of their favorite maps: Carentan, a multiplayer arena known from the first two Call of Duty games, coming to Call of Duty: WWII in a remastered version – Activision hasn’t explained whether the map will simply be enhanced visually or are there any serious design changes in store. Carentan, however, will only be available in Call of Duty: WWII as a bonus for season pass holders.

Carentan is the place where many Call of Duty fans would get some of their first frags ever.

Carentan is a small town in Normandy, which was turned into a Call of Duty multiplayer map in the first installment of the series and then resurfaced in the United Offensive expansion and Call of Duty 2 (a modified version of that, called Chinatown, was also added to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for free at some point). That map became very popular, as it offered a number of devastated, fully explorable buildings, which created tons of occasions for close quarter combat, as well as some mid-range opportunities.

Call of Duty: WWII is launching on November 3, 2017 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
