Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Ascendance Out Today on PS4, PS3

In February, you wreaked Havoc, now get ready for Ascendance, the next DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Available today on PS4 and PS3, Ascendance introduces four new multiplayer maps, a new directed energy weapon, and Infection, the next chapter in Exo Zombies.

For the competitive multiplayer crowd, Ascendance’s four new maps — Perplex, Site 244, Climate, and Chop Shop — will take the fight to new destinations, ranging from an alien crash site beneath Mt. Rushmore to the corridors of a black market exoskeleton complex.

But there’s more to the maps than just new environments: Ascendance introduces a new Exo Grappling ability, which allows players to rapidly reach an elevated vantage point. Players will be able to sample the new mechanic in an Exo Grappling ability playlist exclusively for Ascendance maps.

Here’s a rundown of each map:

Perplex

Venture to the streets of Sydney and battle through a five-story modular apartment complex. With elevated vantages and tight corridors, Perplex is small-to-medium sized map that fits a variety of play styles. Construction drones will shake things up, however, as they shift apartment modules and create new strategic pathways.

Site 244

An alien craft has crash-landed beneath Mt. Rushmore, USA, making for an awesome medium-to-large sized three-lane map littered with extraterrestrial debris. Gain a competitive edge by earning the map-based scorestreak to open an alien spore that enhances your perks and exo abilities.

Climate

Settle in to your dome away from home in Climate — a lush climate-controlled bio dome. With a circular layout with a central island structure for teams to fight for control of, Climate keeps the pace of the action high. The tides can turn, however, when the rivers begin to rage and become a treacherous obstacle.

Chop Shop

Discover the seedy underbelly of the unauthorized exoekeleton trade in Chop Shop, a medium-sized industrial complex with a devastating map-based scorestreak: the Advanced Repulsion Turret.

Ascendance also continues the Exo Zombies story with Infection, a brand new chapter wherein the four survivors find themselves on the outskirts of the mutant-ravaged Atlas Corporation facility and facing new, never-before-seen enemies.

The returning celebrity cast of John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), and Jon Bernthal (Fury) fight tooth and nail through undead zombie hordes.

To help them in their fight for survival, players will leverage an expanded arsenal of weapons and traps. And if you’re a longtime fan of the series, you might spot a familiar fast food chain within the zombie-filled ruins. That’s right, it’s time for another trip to Burgertown.

Lastly, Ascendance introduces a new weapon to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer: the OHM directed energy hybrid weapon. Packing a powerful punch between its two switchable LMG and shotgun modes, the OHM is ideal for laying down suppressing fire or clearing out an objective.

  • Are there any plans for a mulitplayer demo like COD: Ghost had on PS4 last year?

  • Season Pass holder should be able to download the theme for pre-ordering Acendance. Since we technically…preordered.

  • You can download the theme if you are a season pass holder. It is not very good though. Just a big ad.

  • Very excited to play this when I get off work. I love every bit of Havoc.

  • Looks like Killzone: Shadow Fall.

  • And how do I download the theme if I have the season pass? It definitely didn’t do it automatically and I can’t find it in the store.

  • If u own a PS4 and want a truly great sp fps then u should buy Metro Redux or just buy Metro 2033 digitally. Wolfenstein the Nnew Order is also phenomenal and with The Old Blood coming out you can play as bj in 1940s during the heart of the war in castle Wolfenstein. If u own a ps3 u should try the Darkness 2 for a very entertaining sp and a great separate coop campaign. It would be nice to see ppl try other fps’s rather than only playing cod.

  • It does look a bit like Shadowfall. Sadly bo3 copied deus ex big time, but Deus Ex Mankind Divided should be the game u purchase.

  • has anybody figured out how to download ascendance of your a season pass holder for ps3

  • Does anyone know how to download the infection map pack on ps4? I got to the options and it says the map pack is not installed and I haven’t gotten any new updates yet.
