PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC users can now download and play the latest multiplayer expansion for Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Ascendance DLC introduces four new multiplayer maps to the mix as well as episode 2 of Advanced Warfare’s four-player Zombies saga.
In addition, Sledgehammer is getting experimental with a brand new playlist called Exo Grapple. In it, players can partake in various game modes with the ability to use the Exo Grapple technique that was first introduced in the game’s single player campaign. The four new maps are designed to compliment the new play style as well.
Lastly, Ascendance also puts the new OHM directed energy weapon in your hands, a hybrid weapon that performs as both a light-machine gun and shotgun at the press of a button.
PSN and PC users will find it for $14.99 on the in-game store as a standalone DLC pack, or a free download if you already own Advanced Warfare’s Season Pass. Ascendance is also available on Xbox Live.
Have a look at the new content with official descriptions from the press release below:
“The all-new Exo Grapple ability playlist that introduces the Exo Grapple ability to multiplayer. 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.”
OHM Directed Energy Hybrid Weapon
“Packing a powerful punch between its two switchable LMG and shotgun modes, the OHM is ideal for laying down suppressing fire or clearing out an objective.”
“Get vertical in Sydney as you fight to dominate this five-story modular apartment complex. Take the high ground or blast through the close-quarters interior in this small to medium sized map. Adapt your strategy mid-match when construction drones shift apartment modules, creating new routes and cover positions.”
“An alien spacecraft has crash landed, spilling its mysterious cargo under the shadow of Mt. Rushmore, USA. This medium to large three-lane map allows for any style of gameplay, focusing combat through the space ship’s fuselage and around the debris-littered landscape. Use the map-based scorestreak to crack open an alien spore and instantly enhance your perks and exo abilities.”
“Fight your way through a futuristic man-made utopia in this lush, climate-controlled enclosure. In this small to medium sized circular map, land and water routes channel frenetic combat around the central island structure. Watch your step when the river water changes from an asset into a deadly bubbling obstacle.”
“Think fast as you make your way through the black market exoskeleton industrial complex and engage in fast-paced shootouts in this medium sized, symmetrical map. Activate the map-based scorestreak to take control of an Advanced Repulsion Turret that radiates a deadly microwave EMP to help lock down key areas.”
“The Exo Zombies saga continues in the all-new episode, Infected, as the four Atlas employees, portrayed by the returning celebrity cast of John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), and Jon Bernthal (Fury) fight tooth and nail through undead zombie hordes. 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.”
