SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Ascendance, the second epic DLC pack for Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare is available now, first, on the Xbox Live online entertainment network from Microsoft for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft. With four new, action-packed multiplayer maps, the intimidating OHM directed energy 2-in-1 LMG/shotgun, the OHM Werewolf custom variant and the highly-anticipated next entry in Exo Zombies, Infection, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Ascendance offers players the complete DLC entertainment package.
Ascendance‘s four new multiplayer maps have been built from the ground up to integrate the all-new Exo Grapple ability playlist. Exclusive to Ascendance, the new Exo Grapple ability, delivers a faster way to reach strategic vantage points in-game, and a brutal secondary weapon to defeat opponents within heated multiplayer matches.
- Perplex: Get vertical in Sydney and 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. Players must adapt strategy mid-match when construction drones shift apartment modules, creating new routes and cover positions.
- Site 244: An United States military spacecraft has crash landed, spilling its mysterious cargo under the shadow of Mount Rushmore. 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 perks and exo abilities.
- Climate: Fight 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. Players must watch their step when the river water changes from an asset into a deadly bubbling obstacle.
- Chop Shop: Players must think fast and make their way through the black market exoskeleton industrial complex, as they engage in fast-paced shootouts in this medium sized, symmetrical map. Help lock down key areas by activating the map-based scorestreak to take control of an Advanced Repulsion Turret that radiates a deadly microwave EMP.
The Exo Zombies saga continues in the all-new episode, Infection, as four Atlas employees, portrayed by 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, The Wolf of Wall Street) fight tooth and nail through undead zombie hordes. Located on the outskirts of an Atlas facility, the new Exo Zombies episode introduces a slew of never-before-seen undead masses, a robust arsenal of new traps and armaments and everyone’s favorite fast food joint, Burgertown.
