GameStop listing reveals official descriptions for Havoc DLC maps and Exo Zombies

Published

on

GameStop has posted a listing on their website for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Havoc DLC, and in the listing have confirmed the official descriptions for each of the maps included with Havoc DLC.

Get ready for Havoc, the first downloadable content pack for Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare, featuring the all-new Exo Zombies co-op experience, the all-new versatile AE4 directed energy assault rifle, the AE4 Widowmaker custom variant, and four new Multiplayer maps, tailor-made to unleash your exoskeleton’s power.

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. The unique Exo Zombies co-op experience is all-new to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC. This new mode brings the movements, abilities, and weapons of the exoskeleton into battle against the undead.

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.

The map pack was officially announced by SHGames earlier this week following the promo poster leak by GameStop as well. Havoc DLC will be available January 27th first on Xbox Live with other platforms to follow.

More details to be revealed soon.

Lawyer gets in trouble with judge for not playing Call of Duty

In a lawsuit involving Activision’s Infinite Warfare title, a lawyer earned the disapproval of a jude for not playing enough Call of Duty.

After failing to conduct proper research for an active lawsuit, a judge has irritatingly deemed that a lawyer has not played enough Call of Duty.

It’s safe to say most people assume that playing video games would have very little impact on proceedings in a courtroom. However, this specific lawsuit involving Activision and game developers Brooks Entertainment proves that with a little more Call of Duty experience embarrassment could have been avoided.

Of course, embarrassment is not the only thing that could have been avoided as there’s no doubt Brooks Entertainment spent a lot of time and money when they decided to sue Activision in 2021.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare cover

According to legal intelligence news site JD Supra, The lawsuit involved a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare character who primarily appeared in the game’s campaign by the name of Sean Brooks. Brooks Entertainment alleged the likeness between Sean Brooks and their character Shon Brooks went beyond just similarly sounding names.

They claimed that “Shon Brooks and Sean Brooks both had unlimited resources and missiles; they bring thieves to justice; they traveled to Mars, and both games had scripted game battle scenes take place in a high fashion couture shopping center mall.”

Demonstrating a clear understanding of their source material, it didn’t take long for Activision to point out that several of the claims made in regards to the characters’ likeness were factually misrepresented.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare

After an Activision lawyer played through Infinite Warfare’s campaign they declared: “it was immediately apparent to me that many (if not virtually all) of the factual allegations in the Complaint were not accurate.”

For starters, they pointed out that Sean Brooks is not the main character of Infinite Warfare as Brooks Entertainment alleged, and neither do they share any physical similarities. Furthermore, Sean Brooks does not take part in a scripted battle scene inside of a shopping mall as the plaintiffs suggested.

On July 12, 2022, the judge eventually agreed with Activision’s statement and dismissed the lawsuit. To make matters worse the judge also, “ordered the plaintiff’s counsel to reimburse Activision for the reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs that it incurred in the litigation.”

In a humiliating turn of events, the judge claimed that the “Plaintiff’s counsel could have easily verified these facts prior to filing the factually baseless Complaint, just as the Court easily verified them within the first hour and a half of playing the game.”

Not only can CoD fans appreciate that high-quality zinger from the court, but the lawsuit proved that not playing enough Call of Duty could be something you come to regret!

Call of Duty fans vote for their favorite Modern Warfare Campaign

The Modern Warfare CoD series has some memorable Campaigns, but which game does the community think offers the best experience?

Call of Duty fans are voting for their favorite Modern Warfare campaign of all time, and it’s no surprise to see which titles are coming out on top.

With Modern Warfare 2 on the way, Call of Duty fans are feeling nostalgic. The community loves discussing and debating previous CoD titles, especially those who have been playing the games since the start.

Even younger fans who have fallen in love with modern CoD titles like Warzone, Modern Warfare (2019), and Black Ops Cold War may have gone back to the previous installments to see what the hype is about.

Regardless, most Call of Duty fans have their opinions about which game had the best Multiplayer, but what about the best Modern Warfare Campaign?

With four titles to choose from, our Twitter page asked fans to vote in a poll for their favorite campaign.

As of July 29, Modern Warfare 2 is in the lead with 49.3% of the votes, with Modern Warfare (2019) and Call of Duty 4 coming in second and third respectively.

It’s no surprise to see the original MW2 winning the votes, as it has some of the most memorable Campaign moments in CoD history, such as the No Russian mission and the devastating death of Ghost.

Perhaps Modern Warfare 2 (2022) will take over its predecessor and become a fan favorite, as players may even get to play the Campaign earlier than expected.

CoD devs reportedly working on “open world RPG” with Infinity Ward job listing

A job listing from Infinity Ward Poland hints at the Call of Duty developers working on a new open-world RPG.

A new job listing from the Call of Duty developers suggests that Infinity Ward’s Poland office is working on a brand-new open-world role-playing game (RPG).

Open-world video games are extremely popular because of the opportunities they provide to players for exploration of large and detailed maps, with titles like Grand Theft Auto 5 being extremely successful.

Now, a new job listing from Infinity Ward Poland appeared for a short while, suggesting that the Call of Duty developers are currently developing a brand-new role-playing game (RPG) with an open-world structure.

In a now-deleted job listing on the Infinity Ward careers page, Activision were looking for someone with experience making “non-linear narratives in open-world games” to work on a “narrative and cinematic experience in an open-world RPG.”

While the developers didn’t reveal what his project is about, the Narrative Director position in the post placed an emphasis on “story, characters, lore, and world-building” for the game that’s in development.

At the time of writing, it’s unconfirmed what exactly this “unannounced AAA project” is called, and one possibility is that it might be a new Call of Duty title as Infinity Ward have never released a game outside of that series.

It’s also possible that this open-world RPG might be an entirely new IP that has no connection to the Call of Duty franchise. We will probably learn more details as the game’s development progresses.

As exciting as this sounds, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is all just speculation based on the now-deleted job listing, and we’ll need to manage our expectations until Infinity Ward officially announce the game.
