The pack comes with four new multiplayer maps, with both some familiar and brand-new settings.

  • Berserk: a viking village frozen in time, this map will have players battle to control the center bridge while fending off both enemies and blizzards. 
  • Rumble: massive robots stand within an arena as they battle to the admiration of the crowd. Players will fight beneath them while trying to avoid falling mechs and pyrotechnics.
  • Cryogen: off the coast of the Dead Sea is a compound where the most dangerous criminals have been cryogenically frozen. Weave around their frozen tubes in a circular map that's surrounded by sentry towers as they keep watch. 

This DLC will also include the next chapter of the Origins zombie saga, Gorod Krovi. Located in an alternate universe in the Soviet Union in the 1940's, zombies are part mechanized as you battle them in swarms amidst fiery aerial dragon assaults within the what remains of Stalingrad.
