FINAL DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT PACK FOR CALL OF DUTY: ADVANCED WARFARE RECKONING AVAILABLE TOMORROW
Sydney, Australia – August 4, 2015 – Sledgehammer Games and Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI), close out an epic season of Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare downloadable content (DLC) with Reckoning, available starting tomorrow Aug. 5, on Xbox Live from Microsoft for Xbox One and Xbox 360. The game’s fourth and final DLC pack delivers four all-new maps, the return of the Exo Grapple playlist and the rousing conclusion to Exo Zombies.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Reckoning delivers four thrilling new multiplayer maps:
- 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.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Reckoning will be available tomorrow, first on Xbox Live for a suggested retail price of $19.95. The Reckoning DLC Pack is also included in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s DLC Season Pass*, featuring all four DLC Packs planned for the year, as part of the discounted bundle.**
