Earlier this week, Activision unveiled the next DLC for Call of Duty: WWII, which is set to be titled The War Machinebut at the time, we only got a few screenshots of the new maps. Well, today, in its Weekly Community Update blog, developer Sledgehammer Games decided to give players another peek at one of the new maps in the form of another screenshot.

The screenshot, which you can check out at the end of the article, seems to show off another angle of the upcoming map Egypt, which takes place in Giza, right outside of its famous pyramids. This time, instead of a Sphinx, fans get a look at some sort of cannon, although knowing Call of Duty, this is more than likely just for cosmetic purposes and won’t be usable.

The DLC’s new Nazi Zombies map The Shadowed Throne was also given the screenshot treatment, which takes place in a burning, and destroyed Berlin, Germany.

In addition to the new screenshot, it was also revealed that the game’s War mode now has a new feature: an AFK timer. Now, after five minutes of inactivity during a War match, the game will automatically kick you back to the main menu. This is, of course, pretty standard for multiplayer games, so it’s nice that it’s finally been added to, what can definitely be considered, the game’s longest multiplayer mode.

Call of Duty: WWII was released on November 3, 2018, and is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. The War Machine is set to be available on the former console on April 10, 2018.
