Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, like the many COD games that came before it, will get plenty of post-launch DLC. Today Activision shared the first details on this paid content.
The $49.99 Season Pass gives players access to Advanced Warfare's four DLC packs as they're released. Activision says that the Pass is $10 cheaper than buying each pack on its own - which means that the packs cost $15 apiece.
Season Pass holders will also get exclusive bonuses. The largest of them is "Atlas Gorge", a multiplayer map that will be available on Advanced Warfare's release date. "Atlas Gorge" is set in a hydroelectric power plant in the shadow of a massive dam. Players can fight inside the plant's offices or the underground access tunnels. If they head outside, they'll find plenty of pipes and crates and other ledges to climb up using their exoskeleton.
Like Call of Duty: Ghosts, Advanced Warfare has multiplayer maps with special events. In the case of "Atlas Gorge," players can take control of a massive turret on the dam and blast their enemy to smithereens.
Buying the Season Pass will also give you early access to the new weapons introduced by the DLC packs. We don't know what these weapons are yet, though. In fact, we don't know much about DLC packs save for their names: Havoc, Ascendance, Supremacy and Reckoning. Presumably each adds maps for the game's competitive modes but that's all we can safely guess for now. The "box art" for each DLC can be found in the gallery below along with some screenshots of "Atlas Gorge."
Havoc will be the first DLC released for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It's expected to debut in January on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Advanced Warfare's post-launch content is a timed exclusive for Xbox so PS4, PS3 and PC gamers will have to wait until February at the earliest for Havoc.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will launch worldwide on November 4th. Players who pre-order, however, will get 24 hours of early access.
