“Havoc,” the first downloadable content pack for Sledgehammer Games’ “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,” launched Thursday for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. However, PC gamers will have to wait just a bit longer to get in on the fun, due to the DLC pack’s delay for those playing “Advanced Warfare” on Windows. “Havoc” will reach the PC on March 3, due to “an unexpected issue,” Sledgehammer said.
Still, it’s not all bad news for PC gamers. Those forced to wait patiently (or not) for “Havoc” will receive double XP.
“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,” Sledgehammer said on Thursday on its Facebook fan page.
“Havoc” reached the Xbox 360 and Xbox One in January as a result of an exclusivity deal between Activision and Microsoft. The expansion pack brought a number of features along with it, including four new multiplayer maps -- Core, Urban, Sideshow and Drift.
Two new weapons are also included in the DLC -- the AE4 directed energy assault rifle and the AE4 Widowmaker. “Havoc” also includes an “Exo Zombies” mode, a co-op mode that features four Atlas Corporation employees played by John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and John Bernthal.
Players can purchase the game’s DLC on an individual basis or pay $50 for an expansion pass. Each pack costs $15 on its own.
