Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – Reckoning Dated for Xbox

Reckoning, the final DLC map pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, has been dated for Xbox One and Xbox 360. The DLC is out August 4 and adds four all-new multiplayer maps, the Exo Grapple Playlist, and the epic conclusion to the Exo Zombies story.

“We’ve had an absolute blast supporting the fans throughout the DLC season, and continue to come up with fun new ways to play Advanced Warfare.  The support and feedback we’ve received from the community continues to inspire us, and we’ve taken that inspiration to heart with Reckoning to deliver a new set of multiplayer maps and the conclusion to Exo Zombies.  We are grateful to all of our fans and hope everyone enjoys playing the new content as much as we enjoyed creating it,” said Michael Condrey, Co-Founder and Studio Head, Sledgehammer Games.

“What an amazing journey this has been.  From the moment we began with prototyping Advanced Warfare all the way to the completion of our fourth DLC pack, Reckoning, it’s been an incredible experience. We’ve often said we have the best fans in the world, and we mean it.  We look forward to continuing to support our fans,” said Glen Schofield, Co-Founder and Studio Head, Sledgehammer Games.

Unlike previous map packs, Reckoning does not contain a re-imagining of a fan-favorite Call of Duty map. All four maps are brand new and created from scratch. In addition, all four maps have been designed with the Exo Grapple mechanic in mind. Here’s a breakdown of each map:

  • 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.

Rounding out Reckoing is the conclusion to the Exo Zombies saga, Descent. In this episode, the team are about to escape from the Atlas aircraft, but discover that their friend, played by John Malkovich, is now among the undead. Descent takes place on an Atlas survival facility in the middle of an ocean, a new ‘fused’ exo zombie enemy variant, and the Trident Reflected Energy Weapon.

Reckoning can be picked up for $14.99, or as part of the $49.99 Season Pass. The August 4 release is exclusive to Xbox platforms due to a timed-exclusivity deal between Activision and Microsoft. A PlayStation and PC release date will be announced in the near future.
