Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Gets First DLC, Havoc
Activision has announced Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be getting it’s very first DLC pack since launch. Havoc, is on its way and will be available exclusively on Xbox LIVE for Xbox 360 and Xbox One. All other platforms will receive the DLC pack shortly afterwards.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Havoc will include four new multiplayer maps, AE4 directed energy assault rifles, AE4 Widowmaker custom variant and an all new Zombies cooperative mode, Exo Zombies. This new mode will feature a short story told through the eyes of four Atlas Corp. employees, played by celebrities John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowen, and Jon Bernthal. Gamers are placed in a world where a DNA bioweapon has unexpectedly created bloodthirsty, raging hordes of mutant zombies in the Atlas research facility. Because of a failed evacuation of the facility, four survivors must face the worst kind of zombies possible.
“We’re looking forward to playing the new DLC content with fans. The response to Advanced Warfare has been amazing, and the creativity and gameplay variety of the content coming in Havoc is more exciting than ever,” said Michael Condrey, Co-Founder and Studio Head, Sledgehammer Games. “The entire team at Sledgehammer Games is really excited about the release of the Havocand we are ready to kick-off a long DLC season filled with new maps, the new Exo Zombies mode and more,” said Glen Schofield, Co-Founder and Studio Head, Sledgehammer Games.
Here are details about the Havoc DLC multiplayer maps:
- Core: Deploy to the Gobi desert where the ravaged ruins of a nuclear fusion plant set the stage for a high-octane warzone. Take down enemies through the wreckage in long-range combat or get up-close and personal in the tunnels surrounding the central turbine. Activate decontamination drones using the map-based scorestreak to help clean out the competition.
- Urban: Prepare yourself for brutal, high-speed combat in Dallas Ward3, a future mega structure, funneling players into a close-quarters free-for-all. This modular compound’s verticality unleashes the exoskeleton’s capabilities. Stay focused during the timed event as blast doors alter the map’s flow and sightlines.
- Sideshow: In the shadow of Devil’s Tower, Wyoming, this abandoned inn’s open layout amplifies its creep factor. Blast your way through the clown inn with close-quarters battles or use long-range site-lines from the mining facilities and natural terrain. Use the map-based scorestreak to activate the lights, music, and magic of the clown marquee and rain down a barrage of rainbow smoke-trailed cannonballs.
- Drift: An idyllic ski resort high in the Rocky Mountains is transformed into a festive high-altitude playground, perfect for an all-out firefight. Make your way to the highly contested over watch in the glass observation deck or take a ride on the carousel to deliver 360 degrees of carnage. Players can use the map-altering timed event to their advantage as an avalanche of snow and debris disorients players, intensifying the battle.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Havoc will be available on Jan. 27th, 2015 for $15. The Havoc DLC pack is included in the Season Pass as fans get all four DLC pack planned for the year. This is part of a discounted bundle which is offered at the suggested retail price of $49.99. That’s a $10 discount off the individual purchase of all four DLC Map Packs.
