Already available on the Xbox One and 360, the first expansion pack for Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is on the way to the PC and the PlayStation family of consoles before the month is out.
If you’ve already played Advanced Warfare to death, and are of the PS4, PS3, or PC crowd, then your first chance at adding a little more firepower to your game is on the way in short order. The Havoc Pack, which includes a four pack of new multiplayer maps, new weapons (the AE4 directed energy assault rifle and the AE4 Widowmaker custom variant), and the first installment of the latest CoD Zombies mission set, is almost here.
The all-new co-op Exo-Zombies campaign might get the majority of the attention once the pack hits (especially with all that star-power behind them), but the new multiplayer maps shouldn’t be overlooked either, as they represent some of the most interesting designs to hit the game series in a while. Here’s what’s in the ‘box’:
- 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.
Lock and load CoDders, Havoc arrives on the PS4/3 and the PC on February 26th.
