Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC video is full of zombies

Tuesday, 13 January 2015 18:40 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

A video for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Havoc DLC Pack has been released, and with the new DLC you can expect a new weapon and four new multiplayer maps.

Along with the new maps and weapon comes a new custom weapon variant and a new breed of Zombies with a new Exo Zombies co-op experience.

The update stars actors John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and Jon Bernthal.

Here’s more information on what’s included along with information on the maps:

  • Four new multiplayer maps.
  • Access to the AE4 directed energy assault rifle.
  • The AE4 Widowmaker custom variant.
  • New Zombies cooperative mode called Exo Zombies.
  • Story told through the eyes of four employees of the Atlas corporation: John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and Jon Bernthal (voice and likeness).

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.

Havoc will be available first, exclusively on Xbox Live for $15 on January 27. Microsoft Season Pass holders also now have instant access to the Havoc DLC Pack bonus weapons.

The DLC will be made available on PC and PlayStation systems once the Xbox exclusivity period ends.
