Today (April 30), your Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare game just got a refresh with the release of the Ascendance DLC. You get four new maps, a new gun and a new Zombies mode called “Infection.”  

Here’s what you need to know about each map to avoid a suspect K/D ratio.

  • Perplex: Get vertical in Sydney as you fight to dominate this five-story modular apartment complex. Take the high ground or blast through the close-quarters interior in this small to medium sized map. Adapt your strategy mid-match when construction drones shift apartment modules, creating new routes and cover positions.

  • Site 244: A spacecraft has crash landed, spilling its mysterious cargo under the shadow of Mt. Rushmore, USA. This medium to large three-lane map allows for any style of gameplay, focusing combat through the space ship’s fuselage and around the debris-littered landscape. Use the map-based scorestreak to crack open an alien spore and instantly enhance your perks and exo abilities.

  • Climate: Fight your way through a futuristic man-made utopia in this lush, climate-controlled enclosure. In this small to medium sized circular map, land and water routes channel frenetic combat around the central island structure. Watch your step when the river water changes from an asset into a deadly bubbling obstacle.

  • Chop Shop: Think fast as you make your way through the black market exoskeleton industrial complex and engage in fast-paced shootouts in this medium sized, symmetrical map. Activate the map-based scorestreak to take control of an Advanced Repulsion Turret that radiates a deadly microwave EMP to help lock down key areas.

The Exo Zombies “Infection” mode features four Atlas employees, who happened to be portrayed by John Malkovich (RED), Bill Paxton (Aliens), Rose McGowan (Scream), and Jon Bernthal (The Wolf of Wall Street) shooting down an endless stream of undead.

If you got the Season Pass you’re probably already playing. A la carte? That’ll be $14.99 and you’ll also get the new OHM LMG/Shotgun weapon added to your arsenal, too.
