This announcement marks the “last” of a few things, first, it’s the last DLC to drop for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, it’s also the last DLC for Call of Duty to land on Xbox first as next time around, Activision is buddying up with Sony.
So, here it is, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Reckoning DLC, the final DLC for the game which brings four more maps to the title, a new weapon, as well as concluding the epic Exo Zombies series which has been running since the launch of the first DLC pack.
So what do we have this time around? Along with the return of the Exo Grapple playlist, we’ve got four new original maps:
- Overload: Enjoy the grand view of downtown New Baghdad from this exotic compound, complete with fountains, gardens and decorative plasma lamps. The map’s multiple levels and long perimeter site-lines highlight medium to long-range combat and firing a shot at the lamps will send enemies flying in a burst of energy.
- Quarantine: Following a deadly viral outbreak, the island has been converted into a biological testing centre. This medium sized map’s tight corners dial up the speed and open areas combine to allow for any style of gameplay. Activate the map-based scorestreak to unleash a devastating ship-fired missile strike.
- Fracture: Discover what secrets are locked in the ice in this arctic excavation site. Take refuge behind wind turbines and heavy equipment through large combat areas cradled on the shelf of a glacier. Stay alert as the timed event cracks the ice sheet, sending one lane sinking to the depths.
- Swarm: Reconstruction is underway in Seoul, South Korea, congesting narrow corridors of this small to medium sized map with vehicles and equipment. Take position in war-scarred storefronts that provide plenty of cover over the streets or flank the enemy through close quarter interiors in the centre of the map.
Finally we have the epic conclusion to the Exo Zombies SAGA which sees the return of John Malkovich following the events of the last episode. This time however, he’s a little more than his mouthy self.
See Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, Jon Bernthal, and Bruce Campbell as they escape from the Atlas carrier, but discover that their old team mate has returned from the dead. Descent, as it’s titled, throws players onto a remote ocean Atlas survival facility, introducing a new “fused” exo zombie, and the new Trident Reflected Energy Weapon.
Reckoning is set to land first on Xbox One and Xbox 360 on August 4 followed by a release on other platforms soon after.
