Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Ascendance DLC – Release Date Announced!
Activision has announced new downloadable content for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare which will release on March 31, 2015.
Called the Ascendance DLC, this pack mirrors that of the previously-released Havok DLC by including four new multiplayer maps, a new weapon, and a new chapter for Exo Zombies. Additionally, a new Exo Grapple Ability will be granted to those who purchase the DLC.
Included with a custom werewolf variant, the OHM directed energy light machine gun/shotgun hybrid is the newest weapon introduced in Ascendance.
Those on the Ascendance playlist will also have access to a new Exo Grapple ability, which can help players quickly travel to vantage points and serves as a secondary weapon when needed. The Exo Grapple Ability will only be usable on the Ascendance playlist and cannot be used anywhere else.
The Infected chapter of the Exo Zombies saga sees the return of its cast made up of John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal as they fight undead new and old outside of the Atlas facility. The chapter will introduce new traps and bring back Burgertown.
Finally, Ascendance will introduce four new maps. These include Perplex, the map located inside an Australian modular apartment complex, the location of a crash-landed alien spaceship beneath Mount Rushmore in Site 244, a chance to run around a climate-controlled enclosure mixing land and water routes with environmental hazards in Climate, and a map located inside of a black market industrial complex called Chop Shop.
The DLC will be avilable on March 31 for $15 on Xbox One and Xbox 360. It is a timed exclusive and will eventually release on all other appropriate platforms, but a future date for this has not been announced.
