In what could act as a timely booster to players of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, developers Sledgehammer Games has announced the release of the second DLC pack, Ascendance. While The company has sounded the call for its players to be "prepared" for the new DLC.
Ascendance will bring again the part two of the Exo Zombies known as Infection, then the DLC has four new multiplayer maps, new OHM weapon and weapon variant Exo Grapple Playlist.
The four new multiplayer maps will bring some excitement back in the game (Call of Duty Community):
- Perplex – Set in Sydney this map will take the battle into the five storied modular apartment that has to be dominated. The medium sized map offers players to change their strategy when construction drones are shifted allowing players to make new routes and cover positions.
- Site 244 – Set in the backdrop of Mount Rushmore that has seen a mysterious cargo being dropped from an alien spacecraft. So the focus of the battles is on the fuselage and the debris of the Space ship.
