Activision’s critically acclaimed shooter Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare can expect the next DLC drop on all platforms, next month on July 2.
I’ll start with Exo Zombies… because zombies has become one of the major selling points for the CoD titles.
I won’t lie, I have missed most of the DLC drops for this title, favouring the earlier instalments (and less futuristic entires) of the franchise. That being said, with another star studded cast that was reminiscent of the George Romero zombies map from Call of Duty: Black Ops, I have to say that zombies always did make me want to jump back in and give it another go.
Zombie fans will like the fact that Jon Bernthal, who played Shane in The Walking Dead TV series, makes another appearance. John Malkovich, Rose McGowan, Bill Paxton and Bruce Campbell are the other big names included and/or returning in the next Exo Zombies map, ‘Carrier’. Players will be trapped on board an Atlas aircraft carrier and will need to utilise new advanced weaponry whilst taking on new zombies, Atlas Strike teams and more.
It looks action packed, fast paced and bloody as hell.
It goes without saying… if PvP is more to your fancy, players can suit up and take the fight into four new maps.
- Parliament – A military cargo shipped docked on the River Thames sees players battle it out with an iconic London backdrop.
- Kremlin – Players have to avoid an active minefield mid-fight whilst emptying clips in Russia’s Red Square.
- Compound – Atlas’s secret training facility hidden in the Colorado wilderness sees players fight to be the best in a small, symmetrical map. Fast paced symmetrical action will see this map as a true test of skill.
- Skyrise – Remember Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s fan favourite Highrise? It is back with the introduction of new exoskeleton mechanics. Will this be a worthy step back into nostalgia? Or break what was once loved by the community?
Well, you can find out because all of this will be available on July 2, on PlayStation, PC and Xbox platforms. Season pass holders can download at no extra charge whilst those without can purchase at a stand alone price, yet to be announced.
