Activision and Sledgehammer Games have released the full launch details and some new screenshots for the next DLC pack for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Ascendance. You can check out the new details and images for the DLC release below.
Ascendance marks the second DLC add-on for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. Earlier this month, Xbox Season Pass players for the game received early access to the new energy weapons for the Ascendance DLC. The pack will be available first to Xbox One and Xbox 360 players on March 31. The PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC release for Ascendance will follow a month later on April 30. The world premiere of gameplay footage for Ascendance is scheduled for the 2015 Call of Duty Champion on March 29.
The new weapons for Ascendance include the OHM directed energy light machine gun/shotgun hybrid, the OHM Werewolf custom variant and the new Exo Grapple ability playlist that offers the new Exo Grapple ability to multiplayer. Here is a summary of the new multiplayer maps for Ascendance:
- Perplex: Get vertical in Sydney as you fight to dominate this five-story modular apartment complex. Take the high ground or blast through the close-quarters interior in this small to medium sized map. Adapt your strategy mid-match when construction drones shift apartment modules, creating new routes and cover positions.
- Site 244: An alien spacecraft has crash landed, spilling its mysterious cargo under the shadow of Mt. Rushmore, USA. This medium to large three-lane map allows for any style of gameplay, focusing combat through the space ship’s fuselage and around the debris-littered landscape. Use the map-based scorestreak to crack open an alien spore and instantly enhance your perks and exo abilities.
- Climate: Fight your way through a futuristic man-made utopia in this lush, climate-controlled enclosure. In this small to medium sized circular map, land and water routes channel frenetic combat around the central island structure. Watch your step when the river water changes from an asset into a deadly bubbling obstacle.
- Chop Shop: Think fast as you make your way through the black market exoskeleton industrial complex and engage in fast-paced shootouts in this medium sized, symmetrical map. Activate the map-based scorestreak to take control of an Advanced Repulsion Turret that radiates a deadly microwave EMP to help lock down key areas.
The DLC also includes the next episode for the Exo Zombies saga, as four Atlas employees try to fight through a zombie outbreak. The next chapter features the voices of John Malkovich, Rose McGown, Bill Paxton and Jon Bernthal. The next episode of Exo Zombies features some new zombies, new traps and armaments and the fast food joint Burgertown.
The Ascendance DLC pack will be available for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, or it can be purchased individually for the SRP of $15.
