It's not shocking to think that Activision and Sledgehammer Games are actively trying to trump each successive 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' content pack with and even more impressive follow-up, but this time around they may have hit the ceiling. By "ceiling" I am not referring to the new Exo Grapple ability, which lets players soar to new heights in the new map set, including a redesigned 'Modern Warfare 2' classic map. Instead, I mean one very specific aspect of the Exo Zombies episode, 'Carrier,' and that would be the addition of Bruce Campbell.
From Co-Founder and Studio head of Sledgehammer Games, Glen Schofield, "We're huge fans of Bruce Campbell, and to be able to add him to the already great roster of performers in Exo Zombies takes this to a new level."
Of course, for those fane who are not transfixed and the work of Bruce Campbell, the new maps do appear to be well worth the price of admission. 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Supremacy' is coming to the Xbox One and 360 on June 2nd and is expected for other platforms later on this summer.
Here is a rundown of the new maps, abilities, and the new Exo Zombie installment straight from Activision:
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Supremacy includes four new, action-packed multiplayer maps, all featuring the new Exo Grapple mechanic, which adds a layer of fun and strategy to the experience.
Parliament: Docked on the River Thames, this military cargo ship delivers a view of the London cityscape along with a fast-paced combat experience. Mixed site-lines provide opportunities for all styles of play to dominate this medium-sized map. Players can take control of the map-based scorestreak to unleash a barrage of missiles that annihilate enemies.
Kremlin: Gamers must prepare for intense combat outside Russia's presidential palace in the new map Kremlin, as they navigate the worn-torn buildings of Red Square in this medium-sized, three-lane map. Secure elevated positions to give the team a strategic advantage, or use exoskeleton capabilities to avoid being caught in the minefield that activates mid-match.
Compound: Players take combat preparation to the limit in an Atlas training facility hidden away in the Colorado wilderness, as they'll have to be quick on the trigger in this small, symmetrical map, which funnels high-speed combat through tight corners to the main tower structures.
Skyrise: Players deploy to an Atlas Skyscraper overlooking the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Based on the fan-favorite, Highrise, from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by Infinity Ward, this map brings new exoskeleton mechanics to the classic multiplayer layout. Gamers must dominate the power positions in the center of this small-to-medium sized map to control the key navigation points.
The popular Exo Zombies saga continues in the all-new episode, Carrier. Following the end of the last episode, Infected, Bruce Campbell (Army of Darkness, Burn Notice) steps in and joins the battle-hardened cast of John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), and Jon Bernthal (Fury, The Wolf of Wall Street). In Carrier, the four are trapped on an Atlas aircraft carrier. Carrier features advanced new weaponry, enemy Atlas Strike teams, Sentinel support squads, and a host of new zombie enemies.
'Supremacy' is priced at $15, but will be free for all season pass ($49.99) owners.
