Sledgehammer Games and Activision announced today that “Reckoning”, the fourth and final DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, will be available starting tomorrow August 4, 2015 first on Xbox Live for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Brace yourself for Reckoning, the final downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Grapple your way out of ship-fired missile strikes, dodge plasma lamp explosions and boost jump off crumbling glaciers in four all-new MP maps. The culmination of the Exo Zombies saga: Descent introduces a remote ocean Atlas survival
facility, new “fused” zombie enemies, and the Trident Reflected Energy Weapon. Discover the true cause of the global pandemic and the terrible secret that Atlas has been hiding.
Overload: Set in downtown New Baghdad, the map’s multiple levels and long perimeter site-lines are great for medium to long-range combat. Modern architecture provides a tactical layout with a grand view.
Quarantine : This medium sized map takes place on an island following a deadline outbreak that features both tight corners and open areas that combine to allow for any style of gameplay. In the atrium, every step is precious as the floor opens up, in a timed dynamic event, to reveal a bottomless disposal pit.
Fracture : Locked away in the arctic, players take refuge behind wind turbines and heavy equipment that allow for large combat. As the ice buckles and breaks away, flooding escape routes, long-site lines are more key.
Swarm : Narrow corridors of this small to medium sized map in Seoul, South Korea, are the setting. Close quarter store interiors tell the story of a war scarred city that has flanking routes and cover all around.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Reckoning also brings fans Descent a new experience that introduces a remote ocean Atlas survival facility, new “fused” exo zombie enemies and the Trident Reflected Energy Weapon. In the dramatic conclusion of the Exo Zombies saga, Descent continues where Carrier left off. Following the discovery that one of their own (John Malkovich – In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading) is now among the undead, the squad (Bill Paxton – Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow, Rose McGowan – Planet Terror, Scream, Jon Bernthal – Fury, The Wolf of Wall Street and Bruce Campbell – Burn Notice, Bubba Ho-Tep) find themselves in a difficult situation as they attempt to discover the true cause of the global pandemic and the terrible secret that Atlas has been hiding.
