PlayStation and PC players now have the full monty.
Few, if any, do a better job of supporting their game's community with (paid) DLC, than Activision and 'Call of Duty.' With today's release of 'Reckoning' for 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' on the PS4, PS3, and PC, all 'Advance Warfare' players can now buy all of the game's extensive DLC. This is last time (for now) that PlayStation players will have had to follow the Xbox platforms in terms of 'Call of Duty' content, but the PC side stays the same,
'Reckoning' bring the last of the MP maps to 'Advanced Warfare' platforms. This DLC also includes the 'Descent' Exo Zombies episode, which features a remote, zombie John Malkovich toying with players by way of teleportation. (Exo-Zombies is my favorite part of the DLC).
Of course, in addition to the fun that is 'Descent,' 'Reckoning' also includes four new multiplayer maps.
Here is a rundown of the new maps, abilities, and the new Exo Zombie installment straight from Activision:
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Reckoning includes four intense new multiplayer maps, all featuring the new Exo Grapple mechanic, which delivers more fast-paced multiplayer combat than ever before.
Overload: Enjoy the grand view of downtown New Baghdad from this exotic compound, complete with fountains, gardens and decorative plasma lamps. The map's multiple levels and long perimeter site-lines highlight medium to long-range combat, and firing a shot at the lamps will send enemies flying in a burst of energy.
Quarantine: Following a deadly viral outbreak, the island has been converted into a biological testing center. This medium sized map's tight corners dial up the speed and open areas combine to allow for any style of gameplay. Activate the map-based scorestreak to unleash a devastating ship-fired missile strike.
Fracture: Discover what secrets are locked in the ice in this arctic excavation site. Take refuge behind wind turbines and heavy equipment through large combat areas cradled on the shelf of a glacier. Stay alert as the timed event cracks the ice sheet, sending one lane sinking to the depths.
Swarm: Reconstruction is underway in Seoul, South Korea, congesting narrow corridors of this small to medium sized map with vehicles and equipment. Take position in war-scarred storefronts that provide plenty of cover over the streets or flank the enemy through close quarter interiors in the center of the map.
Closing out the final DLC Pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the dramatic conclusion of the Exo Zombies saga with the last episode, Descent. In the last episode, the team - Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), Jon Bernthal (Fury, The Wolf of Wall Street) and new member Bruce Campbell (Army of Darkness, Burn Notice), are about to escape from the Atlas aircraft carrier on which they've been stranded. But before they do, they discover their friend and original squad member, John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), has been turned, and is now among the undead. Descent introduces a remote ocean Atlas survival facility, new "fused" exo zombie enemies, and the Trident Reflected Energy Weapon.
'Reckoning' is priced at $15, but will be free for all season pass ($49.99) owners.
