Four new maps and the conclusion to the Exo Zombies saga.

Remember last year, when Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare first launched? Time flies, it seems. After three fantastic DLC packs filled with Exo Zombies, vertical Exo Grapple maps, and plenty of other surprises, we’re on the cusp of the fourth and final DLC pack’s release. Launching first on Xbox One and Xbox 360 on Tuesday, August 4, Reckoning features four all-new multiplayer maps and the conclusion of the Exo Zombies saga.

The new multiplayer maps once again offer the fast-paced, high-flying action of the Exo Grapple playlist. This go around, Reckoning will take players to exciting locations like New Baghdad, the frozen arctic, and war-torn Seoul, South Korea. Here’s a quick rundown of all four maps:

  • 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.

Of course, there’s more to Reckoning than new multiplayer maps. You’ve fought the waves of undead with them across three exciting episodes, and now it’s time for the all-star cast of Exo Zombies to reach the conclusion of their epic journey in Exo Zombies: Descent. In the last episode, the team – Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), Jon Bernthal (Fury, The Wolf of Wall Street) and new member Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice, Bubba Hotep), are about to escape from the Atlas aircraft carrier on which they’ve been stranded.  But before they do, they discover their friend and original squad member, John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), has been turned, and is now among the undead.

Players who have purchased the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC Season Pass can download Reckoning from Xbox Live to their Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles on August 4.
