Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
's first DLC pack is now available for PS4 and PS3. PC gamers will need to wait a bit longer, though.
The PC launch for the Havoc Pack was scheduled for today as well. However, developer Sledgehammer Games announced a last-minute delay over Facebook
"We have encountered an unexpected issue with the PC release for Call of Duty: ?AdvancedWarfare?'s first DLC content pack, 'Havoc,' and we’re holding its release until March 3rd," the studio said. "We don't take this decision lightly, but rest assured that our team is working with Activision to get this content to the PC community as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we’re turning on ?#DoubleXP? for all PC players to enjoy."
Havoc, available on Xbox consoles since January
, introduces four new maps for Advanced Warfare
's competitive multiplayer
. Here's a brief description of each:
- 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, funneling 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."
The DLC pack also introduces the first chapter in a new Exo Zombies
mode. Four Atlas Corporation employees (voiced by celebrities like John Malkovich
) must fight off an onslaught of zombies clad in exoskeletons that enhance their physical abilities. During the battle, players earn money that they can spend on upgrades and weapons.
The Havoc Pack can be purchased for $15 by itself. Sledgehammer also offers a $60 Season Pass
that provides access to Havoc along with three upcoming DLC packs.
