Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Final DLC Pack Launches in August
Activision unveiled a new trailer to celebrate next week's launch of the fourth and final downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Sledgehammer Games and Activision are gearing up for their swansong when it comes to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's DLC. As always, this new DLC pack includes four new multiplayer maps. It also marks the return of the Exo Grapple Playlist and the debut of the Trident Reflected Energy Weapon. When it comes to the undead, Bruce Campbell, Jon Bernthal, Bill Paxton and Rose McGowan are back to finish their chapter of the Exo Zombies saga. Watch as these horror icons do what they do best, which involves introducing bullets to zombies' brains.
Here's a list of the new multiplayer battlegrounds included with the Reckoning map pack:
- Overload: Enjoy the grand view of downtown New Baghdad from this exotic compound, complete with fountains, gardens and decorative plasma lamps. The map's multiple levels and long perimeter site-lines highlight medium to long-range combat, and firing a shot at the lamps will send enemies flying in a burst of energy.
- Quarantine: Following a deadly viral outbreak, the island has been converted into a biological testing center. This medium sized map's tight corners dial up the speed and open areas combine to allow for any style of gameplay. Activate the map-based scorestreak to unleash a devastating ship-fired missile strike.
- Fracture: Discover what secrets are locked in the ice in this arctic excavation site. Take refuge behind wind turbines and heavy equipment through large combat areas cradled on the shelf of a glacier. Stay alert as the timed event cracks the ice sheet, sending one lane sinking to the depths.
- Swarm: Reconstruction is underway in Seoul, South Korea, congesting narrow corridors of this small to medium sized map with vehicles and equipment. Take position in war-scarred storefronts that provide plenty of cover over the streets or flank the enemy through close quarter interiors in the center of the map.
"We've had an absolute blast supporting the fans throughout the DLC season, and continue to come up with fun new ways to play Advanced Warfare. The support and feedback we've received from the community continues to inspire us, and we've taken that inspiration to heart with Reckoning to deliver a new set of multiplayer maps and the conclusion to Exo Zombies. We are grateful to all of our fans and hope everyone enjoys playing the new content as much as we enjoyed creating it," said Michael Condrey, Co-Founder and Studio Head, Sledgehammer Games.
"What an amazing journey this has been. From the moment we began with prototyping Advanced Warfare all the way to the completion of our fourth DLC pack, Reckoning, it's been an incredible experience. We've often said we have the best fans in the world, and we mean it. We look forward to continuing to support our fans," said Glen Schofield, Co-Founder and Studio Head, Sledgehammer Games.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare — Reckoning will launch first on Xbox Live for $14.99 on Aug. 4. It will also be available for Xbox users on this date as a part of the game's $49.99 Season Pass, which saves you $10 as opposed to buying all four downloadable content map packs separately. Unfortunately, there's no word as to when this content will debut for PlayStation users.
