Groovy! Bruce Campbell Stars In Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Third DLC

Activision and Sledgehammer Games have announced details on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's latest DLC pack, Supremacy. It includes a quartet of new multiplayer maps set across the globe, as well as more content for the game's Exo Zombies mode – starring the one and only Bruce Campbell.

The Supremacy DLC is coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 on June 2 for $14.99. It's a timed exclusive, and if past DLC is any indication, it should be arriving on other platforms about a month later.

Here's a rundown on each of the maps, straight from the team:

 

  • 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 DLC also includes a new Exo Zombies episode, called Carrier. It's set on an Atlus aircraft carrier, where Bruce Campbell joins the team of John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, and Rose McGowan to fight the undead.

 

Our Take
It's nice to see a familiar face pop up again via the Skyrise map. I understand that developers need to keep things new and fresh, but I don't mind seeing throwback maps from time to time. I know I wouldn't mind seeing Black Ops II's Hijacked map again, for instance...
