Back in December, we brought you news of some of the exclusive features you could find yourself polishing when the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC offering, Havoc, came out.
Well, the time has come for Sledgehammer Games to not only flesh out the DLC, but also tell us when it’ll be hitting the console.
Havoc will be Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s first DLC pack and as seems to be the custom with them, will contain four new maps, a bonus weapon, an upgraded weapon and a little surprise or two.
The new maps included will be:
Urban: Set in a built-up area, with locking and unlocking alleyways, you should feel the need for speed here, so tool-up lightly, ready to move around the streets.
Core: Located in a blown-up nuclear fusion facility, with lots of overwatch placements and decontamination drones ready to clean up the opposition.
Drift: Set in the Rocky Mountains, there’s a really handy 360 degree rotating carousel in the centre, but watch out for the avalanche!
Sideshow: This crazy abandoned fun-park has a manic clown, launching usable bombs from his hat. Be the first to grab one.
The bonus weapon, as we brought you in December, will be the AE4 Directed Energy Assault weapon. The only thing you have to worry about with this is the overheat.
The new mode is looking like a killer. Exo-zombie mode. That’s right, not just zombies, but Exo-zombies. This story mode has four main characters, Oz, the maintenance man, Lileth, the IT technician, Decker, the security guard and the exec, Mr. Khan. These are voiced by Rose McGowan, Jon Bernthal, Bill Paxton & John Malkovich. The mode revolves around a DNA bioweapon that spawned a zombie takeover of an Atlas research facility and is told through the eyes of the four characters.
Exo-Zombie mode also reveals the Cel3 Cauteriser, a tri-barreled, energy shotgun, with a revolving barrel.
I know what you’re thinking, when does all this goodness appear? Well, if you’ve been paying attention you’ll already know that Havoc DLC is scheduled to hit Xbox Live on the 27th of January. If you own the Season Pass, you’ll be able to download it as part of that, if not, you’ll need to buy it separately.
