SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare Havoc,
the first DLC pack of the top-selling console video game in the world in
2014, based on physical game unit sell-through data from NPD and Gfk, is
available now, first on the Xbox Live online entertainment network from
Microsoft for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Delivering a new level of DLC
value, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Havoc
includes four new, epic multiplayer maps, access to the versatile AE4
directed energy assault rifle, the AE4 Widowmaker custom variant, plus
an exciting all-new zombies cooperative mode called Exo Zombies.
Havoc's four new, exotic and diverse multiplayer maps are
set around the globe and are tailor-made for players to unleash their
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
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.
Havoc includes a new cooperative experience, Exo Zombies.

corporation and played by a celebrity cast consisting of John Malkovich (In
the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), Bill
Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose
McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), and Jon Bernthal (Fury,
The Wolf of Wall Street), Exo Zombies ushers in a new breed of
zombies and a truly unique experience, all included first in the Havoc
DLC Pack. The actors provide their voice over and likeness in a dark
and cinematic adventure new to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
These four performers help enlist players into a world where a DNA
bioweapon unexpectedly spawns a bloodthirsty, ravenous mutant horde
infecting a secret Atlas research facility and sending personnel running
for their lives. Following a failed evacuation, four survivors,
un-trained and underprepared, must face the most vicious mutations ever
