[dropcap size=small]A[/dropcap]ctivision and Sledgehammer Games on Wednesday announced that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare‘s second expansion, Ascendance, will be released for Xbox 360 and Xbox One on March 31. The add-on will launch for PC, PS3 and PS4 one month later.
There will be new maps, weapons, and the next chapter of the Exo Zombies Mode that comes with the Ascendance package. The DLC is part of the $50 Advance Warfare DLC pass or you can buy separately for $15.
- Four new multiplayer maps: Perplex, Site 244, Climate, and Chop Shop.
- Exo Zombies Chapter Two: Via Activision: “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.”
- New weapons: The OHM directed energy light machine gun/shotgun hybrid and the OHM Werewolf custom variant. These weapons are available now for DLC pass owners.
- New playlist called Exo Grapple: Via Activision: “Exo Grapple gives players a faster way to reach strategic vantage points or a brutal secondary weapon to take down the competition, exclusively on Ascendance maps.”
No gameplay footage has been released yet, but will most likely be released during the 2015 Call of Duty Championship taking place on March 29. Two additional expansions for Advanced Warfare will be released later this year: Supremacy and Reckoning.
Ascendance will be out on Xbox One and Xbox 360 March 31, but Playstation 4, Playstation 3, and PC users will have to wait a month after that to play the DLC.
