The third DLC expansion for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Supremacy, arrives in June, adding four new maps and the next chapter in the Exo Zombies saga.
This time around, cult acting legend Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead, Bubba Ho-Tep, Xena: Warrior Princess) joins the all-star cast of Exo Zombies, which already includes John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich), Bill Paxton (Apollo 13), Rose McGowan (Grindhouse), and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead). This new chapter, Carrier, appears to put the crew onto an aircraft carrier, one that is of course swarming with zombies. Groovy.
Supremacy also adds four new multiplayer maps to the mix. All of them feature the new Exo Grapple mechanic, which is an exo ability that lets you shoot and retract a powerful grappling hook in order to zip around the level like Spider-Man.
Kremlin is set and around Moscow’s famous presidential palace. A war-torn Red Square is divided into three lanes, with the surrounding buildings providing cover and high ground. You might need them for shelter once the mid-match minefield is activated.
Parliament takes you to another European capital, this time along the river Thames in the heart of London. Big Ben smokes in the background as you struggle for control over a military cargo ship. Watch out for the barrage of missiles that will rain down if one team takes control of the map-based scorestreak.
Skyrise will see you doing battle in yet another classic European city. Based on the fan-favorite map Highrise from Modern Warfare 2, this map places players in an Atlas Skyscraper overlooking the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. The addition of exoskeleton abilities will turn up the temperature in this intense, close-quarters map.
Last but not least, Compound is for when you want to get out of the city and catch a little fresh air in the Colorado wilderness. Don’t expect it to be a relaxing visit, however, since this Atlas training facility is a small, symmetrical map which encourages fast-paced combat.
As usual, Xbox gamers get a first crack at the Supremacy DLC, which will be available via Xbox Live on June 2. PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC gamers will have to wait until June 25 to join the action.
