Bruce Campbell, the world’s most famous zombie hunter, will have an expanded role in the third Exo Zombies episode, which Activision revealed today as part of an announcement for the next downloadable expansion for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The nearly three-minute long trailer only includes fleeting glimpses of the groovy actor, but it was the highlight of the video for me.
Besides the mighty Bruce, the Supremacy Pack will include four new competitive multiplayer maps:
- Parliament: Docked on the River Thames, this military cargo ship delivers a view of the London cityscape along with a fast-paced combat experience. Mixed site-lines provide opportunities for all styles of play to dominate this medium-sized map. Players can take control of the map-based scorestreak to unleash a barrage of missiles that annihilate enemies.
- Kremlin: Gamers must prepare for intense combat outside Russia’s presidential palace in the new map Kremlin, as they navigate the worn-torn buildings of Red Square in this medium-sized, three-lane map. Secure elevated positions to give the team a strategic advantage, or use exoskeleton capabilities to avoid being caught in the minefield that activates mid-match.
- Compound: Players take combat preparation to the limit in an Atlas training facility hidden away in the Colorado wilderness, as they’ll have to be quick on the trigger in this small, symmetrical map, which funnels high-speed combat through tight corners to the main tower structures.
- Skyrise: Players deploy to an Atlas Skyscraper overlooking the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Based on the fan-favorite, Highrise, from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by Infinity Ward, this map brings new exoskeleton mechanics to the classic multiplayer layout. Gamers must dominate the power positions in the center of this small-to-medium sized map to control the key navigation points.
The episodic “Exo Zombies” co-op mode will continue in “Carrier,” which will star Campbell in addition to returning cast members John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal. “Carrier,” which takes place on an Atlas aircraft carrier, will include “advanced new weaponry, enemy Atlas Strike teams, Sentinel support squads, and a host of new zombie enemies.”
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Supremacy Pack will be available for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 on June 2. Thanks to Microsoft’s timed exclusivity, PC, PS4, and PS3 players will have to wait at least a month to dive in to the new maps.
