A new trailer has surfaced today, giving more details to the first installment of downloadable content for Advanced Warfare set to release on Jan. 27. The “Havoc” DLC pack includes four new multiplayer maps, a new weapon and weapon variant, as well as the first chapter of the Exo-Zombies saga.
This is the first set of DLC for Advanced Warfare and is coming at the perfect time for gamers eager to try new things. Sledgehammer Games is hard at work trying to keep Advanced Warfare current and exciting for its fans.
During Call of Duty: Ghosts’ lifespan, a very noticeable drop in online players occurred throughout the year due to lack of improvements to the game and less add-ons. The introduction of the “One Shot” sniper playlist was crucial in pleasing a large majority of players in the game that enjoy sniping. Last week, they began the first season of Ranked Play and brought thousands of players back online. It’s important to continue to introduce new playlists and content for fans of the game to come back and continue to play.
The Havoc DLC pack will continue their trend of adding new and exciting additions to the game. For more casual gamers, they will get to experience brand new multiplayer maps, as well as a brand new gamemode in Exo-Zombies. While this doesn’t necessarily have any impact on eSports, it is important to continue to make the game relevant and fun.
