Although Call of Duty: Black Ops is but months away, the team behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare are still set on releasing content for hungry players. Activision have decided to serve up a filling meal indeed with the Supremacy expansion, a hot piece of DLC that introduces Bruce Campbell as Captain Lennox joining the likes of John Malkovich and Bill Paxton from the Havoc expansion.
Of course when Bruce Campbell struts his stuff everything else takes second place and gets a pat on the back from mum. Along with his beautiful face comes new multiplayer maps that take place in London, Moscow, Athens and the Colorado Mountains. The DLC also comes with the Exo Grapple gameplay mechanic that made its debut in the Ascendance DLC.
Activision describes the maps as:
- Parliament: Docked on the River Thames, this military cargo ship delivers a view of the London cityscape along with a fast-paced combat experience. Mixed sight lines provide opportunities for all styles of play to dominate this medium-sized map. Players can take control of the map-based scorestreak to unleash a barrage of missiles that annihilate enemies.
- Kremlin: Gamers must prepare for intense combat outside Russia’s presidential palace in the new map Kremlin, as they navigate the worn-torn buildings of Red Square in this medium-sized, three-lane map. Secure elevated positions to give the team a strategic advantage, or use exoskeleton capabilities to avoid being caught in the minefield that activates mid-match.
- Compound: Players take combat preparation to the limit in an Atlas training facility hidden away in the Colorado wilderness, as they’ll have to be quick on the trigger in this small, symmetrical map, which funnels high-speed combat through tight corners to the main tower structures.
- Skyrise: Players deploy to an Atlas Skyscraper overlooking the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Based on the fan-favorite, Highrise, from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by Infinity Ward, this map brings new exoskeleton mechanics to the classic multiplayer layout. Gamers must dominate the power positions in the center of this small-to-medium sized map to control the key navigation points.
The Exo Zombies mode gets a fresh twist with Carrier, along with this the player will receive new weapons, traps and a new playable character. Plenty to sink your teeth into until the release of Black Ops 3.
Supremacy is available now on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Future releases for all other platforms are yet to be announced. The expansion costs $15 on its own or as part of the $50 expansion pass. Supremacy is likely the second to last expansion before the Reckoning which should be released in the near future.
