The second DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has now been announced – Ascendance.
As you would expect, there will be 4 new multiplayer maps, the new OHM LMG which many of us have already had early access too, and yep that’s right you guessed it, the next installment of Exo-Zombies.
We will however, also see the first of the new Exo abilities be introduced to the game.
Activision provided these details this morning about the content:
Exo Grappling Playlist
The unique grappling ability found in the Campaign mode is now available for use in all of the Ascendance Multiplayer maps through the Exo Grapple Playlist. Activate your Exo Grapple ability for a faster way to reach strategic vantage points or as a brutal secondary weapon to take down the competition.
Perplex – Venture to the streets of Sydney and battle through a five-story modular apartment complex. With elevated vantages and tight corridors, Perplex is small-to-medium sized map that fits variety of play styles. Construction drones will shake things up, however, as they shift apartment modules and create new strategic pathways
Site 244 – An alien craft has crash-landed beneath Mt. Rushmore, USA, making for an awesome medium-to-large sized three-lane map littered with extraterrestrial debris. Gain a competitive edge by earning the map-based scorestreak to open an alien spore that enhances your perks and exo abilities.
Climate – Settle in to your dome away from home in Climate—a lush climate-controlled bio dome. With a circular layout with a central island structure for teams to fight for control of, Climate keeps the pace of the action high. The tides can turn, however, when the rivers begin to rage and become a treacherous obstacle.
Chop Shop – Discover the seedy underbelly of the unauthorized exoekeleton trade in Chop Chop, a medium-sized industrial complex with a devastating map-based scorestreak: the Advanced Repulsion Turret.
Ascendance DLC also brings a new map for Exo Zombies mode called Infection. The returning celebrity 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) fight tooth and nail through undead zombie hordes. To help them in their fight for survival, players will leverage an expanded arsenal of weapons and traps. And if you’re a longtime fan of the series, you might spot a familiar fast food chain in the zombie-filled ruins. That’s right, it’s time for another trip to Burgertown.
If you want to catch the first glimpse of the trailer for this DLC you will need to be tuned into the 2015 Call of Duty Championships on March 29th, which is when the gameplay trailer and the Exo Zombies trailer will be aired.
Ascendance will release on March 30th on Xbox Live, and approximately one month later for PlayStation.
