‘Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ Havoc DLC Revealed With Exo Zombies And New Maps
The first Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC pack was officially announced Tuesday following an image leak. Sledgehammer Games gave a release date for the Xbox version of the Havoc DLC, named all of the maps, and provided a tease for one of them.
The Havoc DLC for Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare will land on the Xbox One and Xbox 360 first on January 27. As per usual, the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC editions of the DLC will be released approximately a month afterward.

The promo image for the Call of Duty DLC leaked earlier in the day after someone snapped a picture of a poster at a GameStop (via Charlie Intel). This led Sledgehammer Games to go ahead and make it official just a few hours later.

The Havoc DLC comes with four maps — “Sideshow,” “Core,” “Drift,” and “Urban.” It also introduces a new weapon called the AE4 Widowmaker and the new Exo-Zombies mode that was teased as a special Easter Egg in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The “Sideshow” map appears to take place at a carnival or motel. “Core” is set in some kind of drilling setup. “Urban” lives up to its name with a futuristic urban setting that appears to include a hover bike. Lastly, “Drift” looks like a mountain ski resort, but it may have something extra, according to Sledgehammer Games Michael Condrey.

Well, there’s a Christmas tree in the background, something Condrey teased previously. There’s no confirmation of what exactly is in each of these maps, so speculate away.
The new Exo Zombies is a new spin on the classic Zombies survival mode from the Call of Duty: Black Ops titles. Aside from confirmation that it features zombies wearing powered exo-skeletons, there’s no word on if it will feature a storyline to it or not.
Lastly, the AE4-Widowmaker is described as a “directed energy assault rifle.” So, make of that what you will.
Call of Duty fans should expect a slew of videos and other content for each Havoc DLC map and mode. What do you think of what is shown so far? Sound off in the comments below.
