PC and PlayStation players have been waiting patiently, and the time draws near. 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's first significant DLC content, 'Havoc,' is coming to the two PlayStation platforms and the PC on February 26th. With 'Havoc' these platforms will get their first crack at the new Exo Zombies complete with its own Hollywood cast and new weapons. Also part of Havoc are four new multiplayer maps.
The cast that fills out the Exo Zombie mode includes 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). The Exo Zombie mode offers four player co-op action as well as... wait for it... zombies in exo suits. Players will have to first face exo zombies without their own exo suit, and in classic CoD zombies fashion, players can earn their way to more powerful capabilities.
Here's a breakdown of the four new 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 Ward 3, 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.
'Havoc' is a DLC add-on priced at $14.99, but is free for owners of the season pass.
