If you’ve been hungry for more Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, the wait will soon be over: the first DLC pack, Havoc, arrives on January 27. Available first on Xbox One and Xbox 360, Havoc introduces four new multiplayer maps, a new breed of zombie survival with Exo Zombies, and the AE4 directed energy assault rifle bonus weapon.

As they say, variety is the spice of life and in keeping with that credo, Havoc’s new multiplayer maps — Core, Urban, Sideshow, and Drift — add a diverse set of environments, including long-range and tight-quarters arenas set in the ruins of a nuclear fusion plant, a futuristic mega structure in Dallas Ward 3, a clown-themed Wyoming inn, and a Rocky Mountains ski resort.

Havoc will also mark the arrival of Exo Zomies, a new cooperative survival mode that centers around four Atlas corporation employees as they fight to survive mutant hordes created by a DNA bioweapon. Exo Zombies will put players to the test as they battle enemies more vicious than ever before.

Finally, those that pick up Havoc will also gain access to the AE4 directed energy assault rifle, as well as a special AE4 Widowmaker variant, as a bonus weapon. Offering the mobility and rate of fire of a traditional assault rifle, the AE4 fires bursts of energy and can go without being reloaded — provided it doesn’t overheat. For a closer look, check out the trailer from when the AE4 launched for Season Pass holders last month.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Havoc DLC Pack launches on January 27, while Season Pass owners can get it along with the three additional planned DLC packs when they are released for one low price.
