As per Microsoft’s exclusivity deal with Activison, each and every DLC pack that arrives for Call of Duty makes its console debut on Xbox platforms first before appearing elsewhere. And Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare proved to be no different, with the shooter’s maiden expansion, Havoc, already available on Xbox One and Xbox 360, the publisher has detailed when the add-on will arrive for PC and PlayStation systems.
According to Activision, that date has been pegged as Thursday, February 26, where four all-new multiplayer maps along with Sledgehammer Games’ futuristic take on the classic Zombies Mode will become available. Much like DLC packs of old, Havoc will be available to download day and date for those season pass holders, whereas the add-on can be picked up as a standalone purchase for $15.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is available now across console platforms and PC. Ahead of Havoc‘s arrival on February 26, you can get acquainted with the new multiplayer locales ahead of time thanks to the detailed descriptions below.
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 sightlines.
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.
