Sledgehammer Games recently released an image revealing a new map for “Call Of Duty: WWII.” The map is called London Docks. Based on the image, the map might have been subjected to a barrage of German bombs in World War 2. The London Docks map features iconic red Routemaster buses and a Cafe Pub that also served as an air raid shelter in World War 2. But why did the developer decide to make a London Docks map?

New map

During World War 2, German soldiers and bombers targeted the London docks to disrupt the activities at factories, warehouses, wharves, and power stations.

Over 25,000 bombs fell on the Docklands. Luckily, some people survived by hiding in underground shelters, which were designed to withstand air raids and nuclear blasts.

What is Gridiron Mode?

The second image shows off a player holding an old football in an underground tunnel. According to a report from GameRant, the image represents the “Call of Duty: WWII” multiplayer mode called Gridiron, which is a boots-on-the-ground version of the popular multiplayer mode known as Uplink.

According to Michael Condrey, Sledgehammer Games Co-founder, in “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” Uplink mode, players are tasked with infiltrating the enemy uplink station and bringing a satellite drone. Players can score a point if the satellite drone is thrown in, and two points can be earned if a player enters the uplink station with the drone.

Fans are expecting that the “Call of Duty: WWII” Gridiron mode will have a similar concept, except that players will use an old football.
