The Havoc DLC for Call of Duty‘s latest is finally gearing up to release, and as usual, Microsoft will be getting it first for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. On January 28th down under (for the Aussies) or a day earlier for North America, the platform will receive the massive update that add in four new maps, as well as the highly anticipated Exo Zombies mode.
Here are the details you can sink your teeth into:
- Core: Deploy to the Gobi desert where the ravaged ruins of a nuclear fusion plant set the stage for a high-octane warzone. Take down enemies through the wreckage in long-range combat or get up-close and personal in the tunnels surrounding the central turbine. Activate decontamination drones using the map-based scorestreak to help clean out the competition.
- Urban: Prepare yourself for brutal, high-speed combat in Dallas Ward 3, a future mega structure, funnelling players into a close-quarters free-for-all. This modular compound’s verticality unleashes the exoskeleton’s capabilities. Stay focused during the timed event as blast doors alter the map’s flow and sightlines.
- Sideshow: In the shadow of Devil’s Tower, Wyoming, this abandoned inn’s open layout amplifies its creep factor. Blast your way through the clown inn with close-quarters battles or use long-range site-lines from the mining facilities and natural terrain. Use the map-based scorestreak to activate the lights, music, and magic of the clown marquee and rain down a barrage of rainbow smoke-trailed cannonballs.
- Drift: An idyllic ski resort high in the Rocky Mountains is transformed into a festive high-altitude playground, perfect for an all-out firefight. Make your way to the highly contested over watch in the glass observation deck or take a ride on the carousel to deliver 360 degrees of carnage. Players can use the map-altering timed event to their advantage as an avalanche of snow and debris disorients players, intensifying the battle.
Not bad at all. Look for this massive update to hit at the end of the month from Activision and Sledgehammer Games for $19.99 unless you have the Season Pass, and for those on Sony consoles and the PC, stay tuned as surely a date will come for your piece of the pie as well.
