Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

Three new multiplayer maps, a new War map and more Nazi Zombies.

Sledgehammer Games has unveiled details of Call of Duty: World War II's first downloadable content pack - The Resistance DLC pack.

Due out January 30th on PS4, with the Xbox One and PC versions to follow after a brief period of exclusivity, The Resistance DLC pack features three new resistance-themed multiplayer maps, a new War Mode map, and the next chapter of Nazi Zombies.

The three maps are Valkyrie, Anthropoid and Occupation. Valkyrie is set in Prussia where the resistance tried to assassinate Hitler, with a wide variety of gameplay from sniper lanes to tight shotgun corners. Anthropoid takes us to the streets of occupied Prague in the Czech Republic, promising tight urban gameplay with lots of height variation. Finally, Occupation revisits a classic map design and brings it to the streets of Paris, where players will do a lot of LMG work and sniping while the Eiffel Tower watches on in the background.

As for War Mode, the new map is called Operation Intercept and will see you try to rescue resistance fighters, then capture audio equipment, then attack enemy forces.

The next chapter of Nazi Zombies also sounds interesting. The idea will be that the characters have received intel about the movement of Dr Straub, who has made his way to a foggy island north of Germany, and the fog will be a very active gameplay element. There's also a new weapon, the Ripsaw, which combines a buzzsaw and gun for close and mid-range encounters, while we're also told to expect a new zombie who can think a bit more strategically than his undead brethren.
