Call of Duty

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Zero Hour Edition has officially gotten into the hands of the gamers. Today marks the special release of the game for those that ordered the Zero Hour edition, everyone else will instead get the game tomorrow; November 4. Regardless, it has been announced as well as discovered that a zombie mode will be featured as an online mode in one of the upcoming content packs that will be apart of the season pass.

It is true, within Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare gamers will able to shoot their beloved zombies. This mode will be coming in the way of an online multiplayer match in one of the upcoming downloadable pieces of content. These four packs can be purchased individually, or together with the season pass. However, it is not yet known when this content will become available, or in which content pack it will be. Four different content packs are planned, starting with Havoc and likely going to Ascendance, Supremacy, and finally Reckoning.

Need to see zombies now? The mode Exo Survivor has a secret end for those that can survive long enough on the map Riot. The level changes dramatically as the last wave becomes a zombie wave that is followed by a getaway cutscene. This video does contain rated M gameplay and possible spoilers.

Havoc, the first real chunk of downloadable content will arrive sometime in January. Those that purchase the $49.99 season pass get early access to DLC weapons and the remake of the classic Pipeline map used in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the map is none other than “Atlas Gorge.” Any that purchase the season pass will be able to download each content pack as soon as they become available.

Not sure what the difference is between the normal version and the Zero Hour edition? The biggest thing Zero Hour offers is the one day earlier release, aside from that the addition comes with two weapons, the Crossbow-B2 and the AK-12G Assult Rifle. Gamers also get the Advanced Arsenal, which includes a day of double XP, the Bullet Brass Exoskeleton and a very special energy weapon.

So far the title is doing well. It has proven that it is capable of change while remaining close to the standard CoD formula that keeps the series alive. Several hard to impress game reviewers have given it great scores, even Polygon was impressed enough to give is a nine out of ten. However, others are less impressed with the quick time action and inconsistent narrative.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare releases tomorrow, November 4, only those with the Zero Hour edition of the game get to play it today. With the official announcement and actual gameplay, zombies have proven themselves to be more than powerful enough to make it into this most recent Call of Duty title. The zombie mode will be coming in the way or future downloadable content which can be purchased ahead of time with the season pass, on sale for $49.99.
