Call of Duty 2016 to be set in space, warring sci-fi groups: Will it beat Black Ops 3 series?

A brand new DLC is one the cards for the latest Call of Duty game in the series – Advanced Warfare. Called 'Ascendance,' this new DLC comes with new brutal enemies that are set to be added to Exo Zombies.

The Ascendance DLC is set to release first for Xbox consoles on 31 March and will include the next chapter of the Exo Zombies Saga – Infected – alongside four new multiplayer maps: Perplex, Site 244, Climate and Chop Shop.

"Prepare for Ascendance, the second downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Part Two of the Exo Zombies co-op experience: Infection introduces an expanded map with terrifying new enemies plus four new Multiplayer Maps enhancing exo-driven verticality," the official description states.

"Devastate the competition with the bonus OHM Directed Energy two-in-one LMG/Shotgun and its OHM Werewolf Custom Variant and take on the new Exo Grapple Playlist for even more dynamic MP gameplay," it adds.

Going by whatever that has been gathered from the sneak peek into the newly released promotional for the DLC, it seems like the surviving Atlas employees will face quite the task just to stay alive.

This time around, a BurgerTown restaurant will play host to the newest battle against the undead, which includes several former employees partaking in the fight with the Exo Zombies to cause more bloodbaths.

Here's a look into the four new maps on offer with Ascendance:

Perplex: Get vertical in Sydney as you fight to dominate this five-story modular apartment complex. Take the high ground or blast through close quarter interior in this small-to-medium sized map. Adapt your strategy mid-way when construction drones shift apartment modules, creating new routes and cover positions.

Site 244: 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.

Climate: 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: 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.
