With the development team behind the full game continuing their work on “Havoc”, it would be a more than safe guess to say this is one of many expansions planned for the title.
Havoc will include a four new multiplayer maps, access to the AE4 direct energy assault rifle, the AE4 Widowmaker customer variant as well as a new Zombies cooperative mode.
This new zombie mode, titled Exo Zombies, will tell the story of four employees of Atlas Corporation; the ingame private military company led by CEO Jonathan Irons, whose likeness and voicing was provided by Kevin Spacey. Exo Zombies will be bringing more celebrities to the mix, John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and Jon Bernthal provided their likenesses and voicing for the four employees.
Activision and Sledgehammer also provided the follow descriptions for the four multiplayer maps, which they promised will be “tailor-made for players to unleash their exoskeletons abilities”.
- 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.
The pack will be available as a timed exclusive on Xbox LIVE on the 27th of January, and is included as part of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC Season Pass for those who have purchased it.
