The second DLC Pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Ascendance, will release first on Xbox consoles March 31.

The next chapter of the Exo Zombies Saga, Infected, starring John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and Jon Bernthal is part of the content.

Along with the next installment of the saga are four new multiplayer maps, the OHM directed energy light machine gun/shotgun hybrid, the OHM Werewolf custom variant, and the new Exo Grapple ability playlist with the Exo Grapple ability for multiplayer.

Here’s a list of the maps with a description:

  • Perplex: Get vertical in Sydney as you fight to dominate this five-story modular apartment complex. Take the high ground or blast through the close-quarters interior in this small to medium sized map. Adapt your strategy mid-match when construction drones shift apartment modules, creating new routes and cover positions.
  • Site 244: An alien spacecraft has crash landed, spilling its mysterious cargo under the shadow of Mt. Rushmore, USA. This medium to large three-lane map allows for any style of gameplay, focusing combat through the space ship’s fuselage and around the debris-littered landscape. Use the map-based scorestreak to crack open an alien spore and instantly enhance your perks and exo abilities.
  • Climate: Fight your way through a futuristic man-made utopia in this lush, climate-controlled enclosure. In this small to medium sized circular map, land and water routes channel frenetic combat around the central island structure. Watch your step when the river water changes from an asset into a deadly bubbling obstacle.
  • Chop Shop: Think fast as you make your way through the black market exoskeleton industrial complex and engage in fast-paced shootouts in this medium sized, symmetrical map. Activate the map-based scorestreak to take control of an Advanced Repulsion Turret that radiates a deadly microwave EMP to help lock down key areas.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – Ascendance will release on PC, PlayStation 3 and PS4 when the Xbox 360 and Xbox One exclusivity period ends.
