Calling All ‘Call Of Duty’ Fans: April Reeks Strongly Of Gunpowder, Advanced Warfare, And Black Ops

This April is going to be big for Call of Duty fans across various platforms, as news of two major updates in the Call of Duty franchise are hanging in the air.

A recent Inquisitr article reported Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has released the “Ascendance” DLC for Xbox One and Xbox 360 during the first week of April, albeit with bugs and issues. Gamers on PlayStation and PC platforms have been looking forward to the “Ascendance” DLC since the Xbox release, but Polygon reports that their wait is almost over.

Activision announced Wednesday that the second DLC extension for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will launch on PC, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 on April 30. Gospel Herald reported that Activision has four DLC extensions planned for Advanced Warfare, but with April 30 just around the corner, gamers will have to stick around for more updates regarding the two more DLCs.

“Ascendance” is the second software update for Advanced Warfare after “Havoc” was released last February across all platforms. The update contains four new maps for multiplayer mode — Perplex, Site 244, Climate, and Chop Shop — and an exciting new Infection episode to the Zombie plotline introduced in “Havoc.” “Ascendance” is projected to cost at $14.99, but can be downloaded for free by those who purchased the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Season Pass.

In another news, COD fans would have already heard of the exciting world reveal that Activision has in store for Call of Duty: Black Ops III on April 26. Charlie Intel published on April 9 the official description for Black Ops III, which has been leaked through the source code on the COD website.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is the first title for next-gen hardware in the critically acclaimed Black Ops series. Developed by Treyarch, the award-winning creator of the two most-played games in Call of Duty® history. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 deploys players into a dark, twisted future where a new breed of Black Ops soldiers emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the technology we created to stay ahead, in a world where cutting-edge military robotics define warfare. With three unique game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies, providing fans with the deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever.”

To pre-empt the April 26 big reveal, famous industry insider Shinobi602 has revealed some information regarding the Black Ops III release in a conversation with Twitter user Temo (@Germanycandoit1).
