Havoc comes to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare today. Ready for some Exo-Zombies?

A quartet of big name Hollywood stars battling the undead and Exo-Suited zombies? Yeah, that sounds like a pretty good time.

Big names are of course, so stranger to Activision’s Call of Duty franchise, but there’s something that’s just plain awesome about John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal starring in this one. Especially Paxton, I mean come on, this is Hudson we’re talking about here! How cool is that!

Sure the whole zombies thing might be a little overdone these days, but at least Havoc mixes things up a little with the cybernetic enhancements. That’s at least something different, which is really what games with the undead starring in them have to do at this point. Just filling them up with a bunch of standard rotters probably isn’t going to get the job done anymore since so many games use them.

In addition to the Exo-Zombies map, the pack also the requisite new weapons (the AE4 directed energy assault rifle and the AE4 Widowmaker custom variant) as well as a quartet of new multiplayer maps set to deliver some pretty cool, and unique for a few of them, play:

  • 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 ready right now to add to your copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on the Xbox family of consoles, with the PS3/4 and the PC getting their dose of downloadable zeds at a later date.
