Now that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s second DLC pack, Ascendance, is completely out, Activision is wasting no time and pulling the veil off their third DLC pack, Supremacy, which will launch this summer.
So what do you get? As per the norm, you receive four new multiplayer maps, which will contain the Exo Grapple mechanic introduced in Ascendance. Activision describes them in detail:
- Parliament: Docked on the River Thames, this military cargo ship delivers a view of the London cityscape along with a fast-paced combat experience. Mixed site-lines provide opportunities for all styles of play to dominate this medium-sized map. Players can take control of the map-based scorestreak to unleash a barrage of missiles that annihilate enemies.
- Kremlin: Gamers must prepare for intense combat outside Russia’s presidential palace in the new map Kremlin, as they navigate the worn-torn buildings of Red Square in this medium-sized, three-lane map. Secure elevated positions to give the team a strategic advantage, or use exoskeleton capabilities to avoid being caught in the minefield that activates mid-match.
- Compound: Players take combat preparation to the limit in an Atlas training facility hidden away in the Colorado wilderness, as they’ll have to be quick on the trigger in this small, symmetrical map, which funnels high-speed combat through tight corners to the main tower structures.
- Skyrise: Players deploy to an Atlas Skyscraper overlooking the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Based on the fan-favorite, Highrise, from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by Infinity Ward, this map brings new exoskeleton mechanics to the classic multiplayer layout. Gamers must dominate the power positions in the center of this small-to-medium sized map to control the key navigation points.
The next episode of Exo Zombies will also be included in this DLC. It’s titled “Carrier” because that’s where our heroes are trapped — on an aircraft carrier, surrounded by zombies with no escape. Things are getting serious, and it’s time to bring in someone who has past experience with this sort of situation. That’s why in addition to the voices of Bill Paxton, John Malkovich and Rose McGowan, joining the cast will be Bruce Campbell!
Just like the previous two DLC packs, the launch date only applies to XBox consoles (360 and One). Playstation users will have to wait a month later. If you have the Season Pass you can just walk through and get it; all others will need to pay a $15 fee if they want this pack individually. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Supremacy will arrive on XBox June 2.
