Call of Duty is one of best video games of all-time, to bad my wife doesn’t feel the same, so when I heard about the franchise’s Ascendance DLC pack coming out later this month I freaked out. It’s scheduled to drop on March 31st and features a map that allows you to play in the bombed-out shadows of Mt. Rushmore after an alien attack. AWESOME!
It also includes something called “Exo Zombies Infection,” which is a different saga of the whole Exo Zombies mode with John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, and Rose McGowan that dropped earlier this year.
Here’s the breakdown from Sledgehammer/Activision on the new maps:
Get vertical in Sydney as you fight to dominate this five-story modular apartment complex. Take the high ground or blast through the close quarters interior in this small to medium sized map. Adapt your strategy mid-match when construction drones shift apartment modules, creating new routes and cover positions.
SITE 244 MAP
An alien spacecraft has crash landed, spilling its mysterious cargo under the shadow of Mt. Rushmore, USA. This medium to large three-lane map allows for any style of gameplay, focusing combat through the space ship’s fuselage and around the debris-littered landscape. Use the map-based scorestreak to crack open an alien spore and instantly enhance your perks and exoskeleton abilities.
Fight your way though a futuristic man-made utopia in this lush, climate-controlled biodome. In this small to medium sized circular map, land and water routes channel frenetic combat around the central island structure. Watch your step when the river water changes from an asset into a deadly bubbling obstacle.
CHOP SHOP MAP
Think fast as you make your way through the black market exoskeleton industrial complex and engage in fast-paced shootouts in this medium sized, symmetrical map. Activate the map-based scorestreak to take control of an Advanced Repulsion Turret that radiates a deadly microwave EMP to help lock down key areas.
There’s also a “sick-ass new shotgun” and a FREAKIN’ GRAPPLING HOOK, which is something I can’t wait to play with in the Exo. Grappling hooks rule.
Drops on Xbox Live on March 31st. I’m stoked.
