Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's final add-on hits Aug. 4

The fourth and final downloadable add-on for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Reckoning, will come to the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of the game on Aug. 4, publisher Activision announced today.

Included in the DLC are four new multiplayer maps and the final episode of developer Sledgehammer Games' Exo Zombies mode. Titled "Descent," the final episode sees the characters played by Bill Paxton, Bruce Campbell, Jon Bernthal and Rose McGowan battling new "fused" Exo Zombies and their former ally, played by John Malkovich.

The add-on, which costs $14.99 and is included as part of Advanced Warfare's $49.99 season pass, adds the following competitive multiplayer maps:

  • Overload: Enjoy the grand view of downtown New Baghdad from this exotic compound, complete with fountains, gardens and decorative plasma lamps. The map's multiple levels and long perimeter site-lines highlight medium to long-range combat, and firing a shot at the lamps will send enemies flying in a burst of energy.
  • Quarantine: Following a deadly viral outbreak, the island has been converted into a biological testing center. This medium sized map's tight corners dial up the speed and open areas combine to allow for any style of gameplay. Activate the map-based scorestreak to unleash a devastating ship-fired missile strike.
  • Fracture: Discover what secrets are locked in the ice in this arctic excavation site. Take refuge behind wind turbines and heavy equipment through large combat areas cradled on the shelf of a glacier. Stay alert as the timed event cracks the ice sheet, sending one lane sinking to the depths.
  • Swarm: Reconstruction is underway in Seoul, South Korea, congesting narrow corridors of this small to medium sized map with vehicles and equipment. Take position in war-scarred storefronts that provide plenty of cover over the streets or flank the enemy through close quarter interiors in the center of the map.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Reckoning DLC will be released first on Xbox Live, with PlayStation and PC platforms to follow. A gameplay preview of the add-on can be watched above.
