    Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Zombies now have exo suits

    It's compulsive multiplayer is pretty good at keeping players coming back for more, but if you have dropped off, those DLC packs have started to roll out for Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare, meaning it’s a great time to return.

    The first of four planned DLC packs for Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare , Havoc should inject a bit of variety into the mix for any of you who know every map like the back of your hand.There are four new maps: Sideshow, a great map for snipers; Drift, which revolves around a moving carousel; Core, set in a destroyed nuclear facility; and the fast-paced Urban.Then, of course, there is the addition of the new Exo Zombies mode. In many ways, it’s the same as the four-player zombie modes that have appeared in various Call Of Duty games. The difference here is that the zombies have Exo suits.Yes, that means that zombies cannow boost jump.Thankfully, you get a few new weapons to deal with them, including one that’s been described by developers Sledgehammer as a triple-powered sawn-off energy shotgun. Nice.

    We're willing to bet that the vast majority of you have stuck to Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s competitive multiplayer modes. That’s perfectly understandable, because it’s the best part of the game. Still, it’s worth giving cooperative multiplayer mode, Exo Survival, a shot. Exo Survival pits you and up to three other players against waves of enemies in a series of 25 rounds. If you survive until the end, the rounds are reset and the difficulty is increased. As you progress through each round, you earn upgrade points that can be used to get new weapons, attachments, perks and Scorestreaks that will aid you in your fight. Thankfully, you keep all your upgrades through each cycle of the mode’s 25 rounds.

    With the understandable focus on Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s multiplayer, the campaign often gets overlooked. You might find it worthwhile to go back and give it a try now that you’ve had plenty of time to get acquainted with multiplayer, however. Throwing the technology that Advanced Warfare’s fiction allows for into the equation allowed developer Sledgehammer to construct some spectacular set pieces. We played the campaign in short bursts in-between playing the multiplayer and found it to be a fun experienced in those bite-sized chunks. If its promise of action movie spectacle isn’t quite enough for you, don’t forget that Advanced Warfare’s campaign has also got lots of Kevin Spacey.

    While it hasn't come to the UK yet, Sony has started rolling out the PlayStation Official League, an eSports platform that’s available to PS Plus subscribers. The league is being supported by the likes of Battlefield, FIFA and, of course, Call Of Duty. With both individual and team prizes on offer, you’ve got a pretty good incentive to brush up on your Call Of Duty skills in anticipation of its arrival. Maybe while we’re waiting, we’ll go and compete in the Call Of Duty Championship and win one of those $1 million prizes. Well, we can dream…

    The futuristic warfare with which the Call Of Duty series has come to be associated means its easy to forget that it started as a World War II shooter. Those games were pretty good, too. It’s worth going back to those early CODs, if for no other reason than to see how the building blocks of COD fell into place in the early years. If that doesn’t float your boat, how about a trip down memory lane to whatever game got you into the series? And yes, believe it or not, you can still find people playing Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2 online.
