“Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Reckoning” is the final downloadable content (DLC) pack from Sledgehammer Games and publisher Activision. The “Reckoning” DLC will come with four new maps for the game’s multiplayer mode as well as the conclusion to the fan-favorite “EXO Zombies” storyline featuring Bruce Campbell, Bill Paxton and “Red” actor John Malkovich.
Announced via a press release from Activision, the final four multiplayer maps for "Advanced Warfare” are: Overload, Quarantine, Fracture and Swarm. Overload is a map set in New Baghdad with multiple levels that will allow players to strategize their moves and install long perimeter site-lines for snipers. Quarantine is a zombie-infested island that has players relying on survival. Fracture is a large map set in the arctic, while Swarm is set in South Korea.
Sledgehammer also announced a free DLC pack dedicated to eSports team OpTic Gaming, which won the second straight X Games Gold at the MLG Pro League Season 2 Championship. The pack will come with a new helmet, exoskeleton and loadout based on the jerseys that were won by the team, according to Express.
The finale of “EXO Zombies” will feature the leads taking on their former comrade turned zombie OZ and his army of technologically enhanced zombies. The zombies will have super speed, making them incredibly difficult to kill, but players will gain access to powerful weapons like laser crossbows.
Considering how over the top “EXO Zombies” was when it started, it only seems fitting to have it end just as crazily, with players taking on an almost Hulk-sized John Malkovich zombie. Players can get a first glimpse of the boss fight in the trailer below, along with a recap of the previous episodes in “EXO Zombies.”
Zombie modes have been a common theme in some of the more recent “Call of Duty” games that have come out, starting with “Call of Duty: World at War.” Even the upcoming “Black Ops 3” will feature an over-the-top zombie mode, although this time it will be mixed with a mafia storyline.
The “Reckoning” DLC is also part of the “Advanced Warfare” season pass, which features all previously released DLC packs for $49.99. If purchased separately, the “Reckoning” DLC will cost $19.99.
“Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” is currently available for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and the Windows PC. The game also features “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey as the villain of the game.
