The way in which we move as a player in Call of Duty has remained very much the same all the way up to 2014.

This definitely isn’t something negative, since it is one of the defining aspects of why Call of Duty is so popular to such a wide audience.

Advanced Warfare has introduced a completely new movement mechanic to the franchise and ultimately changed the pace of the game for many (depending on the game mode).

In the video below, we discuss the future of movement mechanics, and whether we might see a regular appearance of an EXO in future games. Be sure to subscribe to keep up to date with all of our content!

Following the launch of Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC on Xbox, many issues have arisen in trying to access the content. This post will provide the latest updates on each of the issues. Stay tuned.

Season Pass Transfer:

Update: This issue has now been resolved and all Xbox One and Xbox 360 Season Pass owners should now be able to access and download Havoc DLC pack. If you’re experiencing issues, deleting and reinstalling the Season Pass will fix the issue. More details on that here.

Original Issue: 

If you transferred the Season Pass from Xbox 360 to Xbox One, you may have difficulties download Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC. The game currently is charging users to download the DLC. Activision is aware of this issue and is working on a fix. No updates or ETA on when this will be fixed has been revealed.

Can’t Access Exo Zombies:

Update: Activision has stated that the current solution is that you need to make sure the full download content pack is downloaded, including the compatibility pack. If you haven’t downloaded the compatibility Pack 1, try launching a multiplayer session and following the prompt to download the Compatibility Pack 1, which will provide a temporary work around, according to Microsoft. Here’s more ways to check to make sure the entire content is downloaded: 

To check active downloads on Xbox One:

  1. Select My games and apps from the dashboard.
  2. Select Queue.

To check active downloads on Xbox 360:

  1. Press the Guide button in the dashboard.
  2. Select Games & Apps.
  3. Select Active Downloads.

Original Issue: 

Many Xbox 360 users are unable to access Exo Zombies following purchasing/downloading Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC. An error message – “A downloadable content package was removed or all profiles are signed out” – keeps appearing. Activision is aware of this issue and actively working on a fix.

More information will be posted here as we get updates from Activision Support.

UPDATE: We’re getting reports that users who transferred their Season Pass from Xbox 360 to Xbox One are having issues downloading Havoc DLC pack. Activision has not yet stated any details on an ETA for this issue. Stay tuned.

Original Story: 

The first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Havoc, is now available on Xbox Live for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 players. The new DLC pack brings four new multiplayer maps, AE4 directed energy weapon, and the all new Exo Zombies mode.

Multiplayer Maps:

  • Core: Deploy to the Gobi desert where the ravaged ruins of a nuclear fusion plant set the stage for a high-octane warzone. Take down enemies through the wreckage in long-range combat or get up-close and personal in the tunnels surrounding the central turbine. Activate decontamination drones using the map-based scorestreak to help clean out the competition.
  • Urban: Prepare yourself for brutal, high-speed combat in Dallas Ward 3, a future mega structure, funneling players into a close-quarters free-for-all. This modular compound’s verticality unleashes the exoskeleton’s capabilities. Stay focused during the timed event as blast doors alter the map’s flow and sightlines.
  • Sideshow: In the shadow of Devil’s Tower, Wyoming, this abandoned motel’s open layout amplifies its creep factor. Blast your way through the clown inn with close-quarters battles or use long-range site-lines from the mining facilities and natural terrain. Use the map-based scorestreak to activate the lights, music, and magic of the clown marquee and rain down a barrage of rainbow smoke-trailed cannonballs.
  • Drift: An idyllic ski resort high in the Rocky Mountains is transformed into a festive high-altitude playground, perfect for an all-out firefight. Make your way to the highly contested overwatch position in the glass observation deck or take a ride on the carousel to deliver 360 degrees of carnage. Players can use the map-altering timed event to their advantage as an avalanche of snow and debris disorients players, intensifying the battle.

Exo Zombies:

  • Get ready for a new breed of Zombies. A DNA bioweapon unexpectedly spawns a bloodthirsty, ravenous mutant horde infecting an entire secret Atlas research facility and sending personnel running for their lives. Following a failed evacuation, four survivors, un-trained and underprepared, must face the most vicious mutations ever unleashed. Check out the trailer here.

Bonus Weapon:

  • DLC owners get access to the Havoc DLC Pack bonus weapons. The AE4 directed energy assault rifle and its custom weapon variant, the AE4 Widowmaker, combine a versatile firing mechanism with all-around movement speed and handling.

Be sure to watch the official trailer here, checkout official screenshots here, and watch our gameplay videos.

Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC is now available on Xbox One and Xbox 360 and is coming soon to PSN and PC. The DLC pack costs $14.99 or is included with the Season Pass.
