On the off chance you missed our previous coverage
on the new DLC titled, "Supremacy" for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
, you're in luck, as we have a wealth of new information available detailing the new maps and the continuation of the Exo Zombie saga for the DLC.
Before we get too into detail, Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield from Sledgehammer Games had this to say about the new DLC.Set against iconic landmarks, Supremacy takes players across the world in some of our most exciting maps to date. New and exciting vertical routes give players unique ways to dominate the battle through both the exo movement set and the new Exo Grapple ability. We are also thrilled to re-imagine one of the most popular Call of Duty maps ever, Modern Warfare 2’s Highrise, with exo and grapple gameplay for fans to enjoy.
This is not only the four new multiplayer maps, but the continuation of the popular Exo Zombies saga. We’re huge fans of Bruce Campbell and to be able to add him to the already great roster of performers in Exo Zombies takes this to a new level
Let's start with the multiplayer. There will be four new maps which will be added to the mode, along with the new Exo Grapple mechanic, which can add layers of fun and strategy to the experience.Parliament : Docked on the River Thames, this military cargo ship delivers a view of the London cityscape along with a fast-paced combat experience. Mixed site-lines provide opportunities for all styles of play to dominate this medium-sized map. Players can take control of the map-based scorestreak to unleash a barrage of missiles that annihilate enemies.
Kremlin : Gamers must prepare for intense combat outside Russia’s presidential palace in the new map Kremlin, as they navigate the worn-torn buildings of Red Square in this medium-sized, three-lane map. Secure elevated positions to give the team a strategic advantage, or use exoskeleton capabilities to avoid being caught in the minefield that activates mid-match.
Compound : Players take combat preparation to the limit in an Atlas training facility hidden away in the Colorado wilderness, as they’ll have to be quick on the trigger in this small, symmetrical map, which funnels high-speed combat through tight corners to the main tower structures.
Skyrise: Players deploy to an Atlas Skyscraper overlooking the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Based on the fan-favourite, Highrise, from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by Infinity Ward , this map brings new exoskeleton mechanics to the classic multiplayer layout. Gamers must dominate the power positions in the centre of this small-to-medium sized map to control the key navigation points.
Now that we have a better understanding of what type of multiplayer maps we can fight on, what about the Exo Zombies mode, you ask? For the fans, you'll be glad to know that they will indeed be continuing the story in a new episode titled, Carrier
. It will follow straight from the ending of the last episode, Infected
where Bruce Campbell will step in and join the already battle hardened crew of John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and Jon Bernthal, who are trapped on an Atlas aircraft carrier. Carrier
will also feature new advanced weaponry, enemy Atlas Strike teams, Sentinel support squads and a host of new zombie enemies to boot!
For those looking forward to all these new additions, you won't have too long to wait as the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
"Supremacy" DLC will be released first over Xbox LIVE on June 2nd.
