Call Of Duty: WWII multiplayer map Easter eggs have been discovered, and they seemingly tease some sort of campaign based on D-Day. The evidence springs from Spotify barcodes found on each of the beta’s four main maps. They offer messages and morse code that hide an unknown secret.

The story began when YouTube’s PrestigeIsKey posted his findings of three Spotify barcodes on Gibraltar, Pointe Du Hoc and Ardennes. The mystery was fully solved by OGXRAYZ with the release of the brand new larger map called Aachen.

Both sources combined to find four Spotify barcodes in the spots pictured above. When scanned with a mobile device, they offer a transmission relay between what sounds like British or American forces in coordination with the French resistance. Here’s a transcript of the conversation:

  • Transmission Alpha [French Resistance Fighter]: Attention! Attention! We who are prosperous must break all ties. If you hear this transmission respond please. The leopard's spots are now in motion.
  • Transmission Beta [British or U.S.]: Dispatch received. Breaking all ties. Please advise on operation's order. Focus on tiger's eyes and ears not her stripes.
  • Transmission Charlie [French]: All spots should target the stripes. Reports confirm tigers are more susceptible when they are drinking water. All those who are prosperous, break your ties from now until the leopard wakes. We fight together.
  • Transmission Delta [U.S./British]: Patience is bitter but its fruit is sweet. The prosperous have broken all ties. No tiger will make it north before the leopard wakes. The spots are on the move. Your prosperous stand 30 kilometers away. All ties severed. We pray for Neptune and await your arrival as mother tiger sleeps.

At the end of each of broadcast, a string of beeps signifies letters in morse code. These letters were discovered to be UWBGH. When entered at the Call Of Duty: WWII teaser site, the following new documents are revealed. Apparently these words link to a mission called Operation Prosper, and it charts a map of where the Allied Panthera Pardus, or spots, must invade.

While the rest is pure speculation, most fans seem to believe these teases have some sort of relation to D-Day. Assuming the Allies are spots and Axis is the tiger, the insinuation is made that the Axis is “more susceptible when they are drinking water.” In other words, the Germans are weak near the water on the beaches of Normandy. The prayers for Neptune, the Greek god of the ocean, support this perspective even more.

A little historical research can potentially be just as insightful. During World War II, the British had a small network of informants called the Prosper Spy Network working with the French resistance. Interestingly, the were charged with relaying incorrect information about D-Day to fool the German forces into believing the invasion would be somewhere else. Controversially, the British sacrificed the lives of most of the network to keep that secret alive. From the quoted transmissions, it sounds like the French fighter may be telling those part of the misdirection to go silent and feign action while the real force, the spots, moves into Normandy.

Even if those dots are connected correctly, however, we don’t truly know yet how this chatter relates to Call Of Duty: WWII. Obviously the spoken voices seem to imply relevance to the game’s offline campaign, but interviews with Sledgehammer staff have also mentioned a D-Day multiplayer War map too. These Easter eggs could technically tease either or both of those additions.

Call Of Duty: WWII comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC Nov. 3. The multiplayer Private Beta is live now on PS4 and Xbox One.
