The second downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Ascendance, will be available on Thursday, April 30th on PlayStation Network for both PS4 and PS3, and on PC. Ascendance DLC brings four new multiplayer maps, Exo Zombies Part Two: Infection, and the OHM / Werewolf 2-in-1 LMG/Shotgun weapon.

Ascendance, the second massive DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC on April 30. The definitive DLC package, with its four new thrilling maps, the formidable OHM, a 2-in-1 directed energy light machine gun/shotgun, the OHM Werewolf custom variant, and the all-new Exo Grapple ability and playlist delivering a faster way to reach strategic vantage points or a brutal secondary weapon to take down the competition, exclusively on Ascendance maps.

Multiplayer Maps: 

  • 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: A 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.

Exo Zombies 

  • Part Two: Infection: Four Atlas employees, portrayed by the returning celebrity cast of John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), and Jon Bernthal (Fury) fight tooth and nail through undead zombie hordes. Located on the outskirts of an Atlas facility, the new Exo Zombies episode introduces a slew of never-before-seen undead masses, a robust arsenal of new traps and armaments and everyone’s favorite fast food joint, Burgertown. Check out the trailer here.

Bonus Weapon:

  • OHM directed energy hybrid weapon can switch between an LMG and Shotgun on the fly. Also included is the OHM-Werewolf custom variant.

In addition, for PlayStation 4 gamers in North America, if you preorder the DLC on the PSN Store, you will get an exclusive theme. You can preorder Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Ascendance DLC now on PlayStation 4 HERE.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Ascendance DLC is available now on Xbox Live and coming April 30th to PSN/PC.

    This DLC pack is amazing, would recommend to buy.

    • GinsuVictim

      I was not at all impressed with this DLC. The first was pretty good, but this is a real letdown.

      • ScOott

        I not got it, I was going to buy it for zombies but the map looks a bit dark and boring ? Is it as good as the first zombie map ?

        • RdJokr

          Infection is anything BUT boring. I am only speaking from my opinion of having seen gameplay from other Youtubers, but this map has a lot more open room for training, the Civilian rescue objective looks fun (and rewarding too), and the Goliath is a great, challenging boss. The traps are more useful than the security systems in Outbreak, and totally worth the points you spend into.

          Also, the easter egg can get really fun when you get to play around with the burgers 😉

          • ScOott

            thanks, I might just get it then, the burger thing sounds interesting but I’m pants at finding Easter eggs lol.

        • GinsuVictim

          I haven’t tried the new zombies map yet. I’m not a big zombies fan in the first place, so I’m not the best person to ask.

          • ScOott

            Ur not a fan of any zombies 😮 not even black ops 1 or 2 ?

          • GinsuVictim

            Nope, I just don’t care for it, which sucks because I’ve been a fan of all things zombies since the early to mid-80s.

          • ScOott

            Give me a zombie in any game n I’m happy (part from black op2… But that’s another story)

    • k5berry

      Perplex looks like an all-time great and is like paradise for me because I personally LOVE high maps where you have to jump around from one platform to another, like “hop skip and jump” maps.

    • ccrows

      Plus more Elite Guns are gonna be arriving to play on the new DLC maps… 😉

  • Would be funny if they delayed it.

  • Dean Martin

    wonder what I means Pre-order and receive a bonus after checking out:

    • WhiskeyDick

      “Exclusive theme”… Hope that helps

  • Jhonatan Orlando Ferro

    For pc too or not?

    • RdJokr

      Should be the same date, but can’t be certain till there’s an announcement. If all goes well, and we get no delay like last time.

  • Daniel

    Best dlc ever

  • Alex (EXO SUX)

    Not buying this shit…….Game is rubbish

    • Kobrah


  • idkwhatmynameis

    Aw shucks l was kinda hoping for more bo3 fashion updates. Oh well back to actual in game news I guess.

  • Ratboy

    how do I get the theme? Im a season pass owner.

    • WhiskeyDick

      You get it by pre-ordering the dlc from the psn store, so I think it’s safe to assume this isn’t included in the season pass

  • WhiskeyDick

    Does this mean PS3 users will finally get the ability to earn ASD’s by the 30th? And the ascendence dlc the end of next month?

  • Drasadex

    that zombie map looks pretty good.

    • Show N Prove

      It is good

  • zombiefreak935

    Was not planing on buying the dlc. Is this worth it?

    • Pierce

      Yea this actually looks very good, plus my freind who is oncbox has it and he loves it and he is not easily pleased

  • Thatlazykid

    After so much bo3 news/ rumors i feel like we had kind of forgotten AW which i dont mind at all but still :/

    • Kobrah

      You don’t mind AW or you don’t mind forgetting about it?

  • Blaine

    I love how they can never mention PC even though they don’t have any kind of exclusive deal with Playstation. SHG just hates PC that much.

    • RdJokr

      Dude. This was pulled from PLAYSTATION store. You expect them to advertise PC there? And it’s not even SHG’s fault.

    • Freeze

      Tweet this to @SHGames condrey and schofield

    • Keshav Bhat

      We don’t mention PC because, well, the PlayStation Store doesn’t talk about release dates for something on PC or Steam. PlayStation store is where we got our information for this post; so, last I checked, Sony won’t post PC information.

      As for a PC date, I would say it’s the same one but I don’t want to say it 100%. Havoc was delayed last time for PC only, so we’re not sure.

  • Ivan

    Will we ever get only old maps Dlc or mw3 guns dlc to purchase? It would make the game exciting
    I say mw3 guns because it had a lot of weapons to chose from

    • Paul Thomas

      So long as it was all balanced i’d be on board, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

  • Choppabro2psn

    I completely forgot about this. If the ohm wasn’t overpowered and separate from the maps, I definitely wouldn’t buy this.

  • chris

    I refuse to buy dlc for AW. I was excited about a month ago. Maybe bo3 will be fair with the dlc.

  • Tricky VIk

    “A pretty big update is on PS3, supposedly ASD’s now.”

    • PurplePeopleEater

      Nope, I heard this rumor so I did my prestige after waiting for over a month for ASD’s only to find I earned completely nothing… Back to Blackops2 until then!!

      • Tricky VIk

        “You don’t get them, you gotta level up and stuff.”

        • WhiskeyDick

          No you get ASD’s when you prestige along with hit rank 20,30, & 40

          Also, why are you quoting your own self?!

          • Kobrah

            He does that in every comment he makes

          • Tricky VIk

            “Very wise my friend, upvoted.”

          • Tricky VIk

            “Cause life.”

    • idkwhatmynameis

      No sir, patch notes are on red dit and a couple other places. Stuff like fixed a RARE issue where players couldn’t use a camo on a second primary weapon while using overkill in a private match.smh.
      No advanced drops or Goliath fix tho

      • Tricky VIk

        “I read on the patch notes that there were supposed ADS’s, maybe the notes lied, either way thanks for the info comrade.”

        • idkwhatmynameis

          No problem

  • Dr. Salim

    Still no update about the new cod snapchat video?

  • Ryumoau

    Theres suppose to be a huge Spring Break Call of Duty sale on psn network next tuesday. Hopefully the Advanced Warfare season pass will go down to a more reasonable price. I’m hoping for $25 but i’d be willing to get it at $30.

  • Rick Starr

    Are we gonna get more 2XP when this comes out???

  • Rorschach Ink

    Gonna give you my personal review of the map pack. First off, I sorta expected a map remake in this one considering the rumors and news before the time. Remake or no remake, I enjoyed all four map designs and layouts.
    PERPLEX: A truly vertical map, I found myself playing as if it were a constant game of king of the hill. However, I don’t think it will be a great map for those who play on the Classic playlist considering there are no exos or ways to get the the “summit” of the map.
    SITE 244: A great map for those who enjoy simple three- lane layouts and mid to long range firearms. When I played this map, I noticed there were basically three ways to go through the map; through the ship and the sides. Simplicity at its finest. The Map based scorestreak, Super Serum, is pretty interesting. I would describe it as picking up a better version of those “uncommon” perk packages.
    CLIMATE: Dynamic event didn’t really change how the map was played, people naturally avoided the water due the risk of it slowing you down and exos. However, I love it’s circular design and it’s focus on the center of the map. You would be able dominate if you controled the center of the map or work your way around the outside and pick off enemies as if it were guerrilla warfare.
    CHOP SHOP: Reminded me of Asylum from World at War, you never knew what was around the corner and there were plenty of paths to take. The Map Killstreak, Repulsion Turret, reminded me of the Guardian Turret and it’s glorious microwaving capabilities. During one of my plays through this map, it felt as if my Team and I were raiding the map. I have to say, this map has its charm.
    INFECTION: Well our “heroes” are back at it again and on a whole new map to explore. They start off in what appeared to be a storage room with 2 doors to choose from. The forklift door led to Value Voltage, an electric car station, I spent most of my time here training the infected and if anything ever got too sticky I’d trigger the decoy alarm trap. The sliding door led to the Research Facility, where the first 3D printer was active. It was an okay part of the map, I found myself getting ambushed by the infected around every corner or so. In fact, I don’t think I would ever open that door if it wasn’t the 3D printer starting point and I’m sure no one will miss Exo Slam. Each side of the map has a portion that reveals the sewer tunnels, upon entering the sewer I found myself getting a bit lost and stuck in the water. After getting a grasp, I managed to locate the decontamination system, the Exo suits, and the way to Burgertown. Burgertown is the largest portion not the map and probably the most important considering the Exo Health is located there. I also managed to encounter the Goliath on this part of the map, he caught me a bit by surprise with his EMP missiles and ability to jump but after a while he was pretty easy to manage as long as you didn’t have to revive any allies. Honestly I half expected him to play like the Tank from L4D but he really played like any other zombie but with extra health. The Survivor rounds weren’t difficult but rather annoying, you’d be forced to leave your training area and help the Survivors escape the map otherwise the company (or someone) would EMP your suit.
    OHM LMG/SHOTTY: A pretty cool and flexible weapon. I didn’t really use the LMG mode but I found the Shotgun mode pretty awesome. I remember mowing down enemies in Hardpoint on the map Sideshow when the Hardpoint was in the hotel room. The’re isn’t anything wrong with LMG mode but I thought it too inaccurate to be used from afar. You can’t even put a foregrip on the thing, oh well.

    • ScOott

      I read all this, wanting a zombie review, and you didn’t even mention it :-/ ..

      • Rorschach Ink

        Mentioned. Thanks for reading it btw

        • ScOott

          Thanks lol .. which one you like best the first zombie map or this one ?

          • Rorschach Ink

            Infection all the way. It just has more to offer

  • Kobrah

    People talking to this SHGames account like its real lol

    • PatPatPat

      Probably just Jordan.

      • Kobrah

        Well… I haven’t seen him comment in this article yet so…

        • PatPatPat

          Haven’t seen him comment on a few articles.

          • Kobrah


          • ScOott

            He’s here he laughed at a picture I posted on the last article … His comment read … “Lmao”

      • jordanxbrookes

        Nope, wasn’t me, but I do know who it was.

        • PatPatPat

          Who’d that be?

        • PatPatPat

          Who’d that be?

  • PatPatPat

    Off topic, But if this new SHG account is,well, a fake, then whoever is behind it must be going out of their way to make it look legit as possible.

    • Kobrah

      IKR, It’s really freaking annoying

    • RdJokr

      Totally would give that person an A for effort.

    • LovekillerX

      Yeah I don’t really think they would come here to chat with people. They are already in a hurry with Twitter and other social medias.

    • Keshav Bhat

      Confirmed: It’s fake.

      • PatPatPat

        Good to know.

  • ScOott

    Why The fuck is everyone replying to this SHG guy, I bet he’s some sad weirdo that’s laughing at all of u … Ask someone from SH if their is a guy on disques that comes to ci before thinking this guy is for real …. Did u know we also have moo cow commenter on here … I wonder if he’s a real typing cow *thinking face*

    • LovekillerX

      Lol nice point. I think it is fake because why would they come here if they are already in a hurry? They just don’t have time for coming here to answer to people’s questions.

      • ScOott

        Lol yh why would they even care, they can see what people think, if they really wanted to get people’s opinion, which they don’t as I’m sure their twitters are like a hotline most of the time, but if they did it would of been a lot easier to contact a member of ci to ask us stuff, this guy just repeats visit this or that site, n even if he did work for SH (which he doesn’t) he’s a useless turd

        • LovekillerX

          I know right. If I’m right that guy answering as “SHGames” is in principle guilty for identity theft which is a crime in most situations?

          • ScOott

            Don’t worry, I’ve just put my police uniform on, if he comments on this post il stop and arrest him, n he will respect ma authoratarrr

          • Guywithbrains
          • ScOott

            lmao! Great pic!

          • Kill Denied

            You’re stupid

          • Guywithbrains

            So you think that if I write as your name in the internet it is NOT identity theft? In other words you think I don’t steal your name if I use it as mine?

            I’m sure he is the one who isn’t stupid here…

          • Kill Denied

            It’s not, if you use my full name, address etc for your own benefit for these following reasons it’s theft (obtaining goods and services, to obtain medical care or drugs and assuming my identity to use daily)

            Using my name to troll people isn’t a crime, if i went to the police with that. They would laugh in my face for being a bitch

            For someone whose username is Guywithbrains, you clearly have none.

          • Guywithbrains

            That’s pretty stupid to always talk about my name. Everyone has brains but that doesn’t mean that I can’t be stupid. However, in this case I am not stupid.

            Reason is simple: Sledgehammer Games is official company and they have trademark. So user who uses their name is guilty to identity theft. Even if the police would laugh at this because it is another internet problem.

            This community (mostly kids) seriously need some advanced studies in terms of law.

          • Kill Denied

            Still not identity theft, ID theft pertains to individual people not companies.

          • ScOott

            Lol he’s not, it’s a valid point, it’s illegal to steal someone’s identity.. People think this guy works for SH, he could say anything.. He could hurt SH reputation in many ways if he chose to, n SH would have the right to sue him… Not that this is going to come to that, but it could happen if he was trying to tarnish SH reputation ..

    • FazalGaming

      Of course it’s fake! Click on it, why would an official SHG account have a total of 6 UPVOTES?

      • ScOott

        Lol means nothing on here, I think he would get more hate than upvotes !

    • RdJokr

      Just for fun, I guess. On the off chance that it MIGHT be legit (which it isn’t), somebody might get to vent something out and tell it straight to SHG. But seeing as it isn’t, might as well throw something at them, and see how they reply to you.

      Some answers were actually believable, but some just totally give it away.

      • ScOott

        Lol but this isn’t the first time he’s done this .. He just comes back everynow n again to get reactions out of people… Eventually the joke wears thin ..

    • Get better

      Say what you like, but the cow’s real!

        I was kind of hoping he was 🙂
