The Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Supremacy map pack is set to initially release on June 2nd for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and scheduled to release on PS3 and PS4 a month later, like always, which will be July 2nd. This will be the third piece of DLC in Advanced Warfare and will be followed by one more, called Reckoning.
4 New Maps – Or Should I Say 3?
Like the past two DLC’s in Advanced Warfare, there will be 4 ‘new maps’ coming to Advanced Warfare in Supremacy, however I’m sure the name of one of them may ring a bell. Here are the names of the maps:
The map ‘Skyrise’ is in fact a remake of the Modern Warfare 2 map ‘Highrise’, which I’m sure many of you will be pleased with.
Below is the official Supremacy trailer, so make sure to check it out!
On the first map, Kremelin, there seems to be a mounted mini-gun on the map, which could be a great tactical asset in a game as shown in the trailer where it is directly covering the hardpoint. Also, there seemed to be a couple of mine-type things on the ground, which seemed to act similarly to an IMS, as it launched up an explosive when an enemy came nearby. This looks like an action-packed map to say the least!
Next up there’s Parliament, set in London by the River Thames, which seems really cool to me! There also seems to be a map-based scorestreak, where you can call in a load of missiles on a designated area.
Thirdly, Compound is set in an Atlas training facility and is a predominantly close-quarter map, which should hopefully encourage the use of more sub-machine guns and shotguns.
However, the map I’m sure you’re all most excited about is Skyrise! The map Highrise from Modern Warfare 2 was a fan favourite, so it will be really interesting how the use of Exo movements will play out on this map! Personally, I wasn’t playing Call of Duty at the time Modern Warfare 2 was the latest Call of Duty, so I’m not quite as hyped for it as some of you guys will be. Let me know in the comments section if you like the looks of this map!
Here are the Advanced Warfare Supremacy DLC map descriptions as shown on Activision’s website:
A New Exo Zombies Map Called “Carrier”
The zombie fans among you will be pleased to know that there will be another Exo Zombies map coming with the Supremacy map pack, which will follow on with the story from the other zombies map; if you watched the trailer, you will have got a hint of what the story within the map Carrier contains, but I won’t give any hints away for any of you that don’t want the slightest of spoilers.
There Will Not be Another Multiplayer DLC Weapon, But Instead an Exo Zombies One
Although many of you will be disappointed by the news that there will be no bonus multiplayer DLC weapon with Supremacy, you’ve got to admit we’ve been pretty fortunate already, with a DLC weapon in the previous two map packs. Also, we can hopefully expect to see another one in the next DLC!
The fact that there will be another special zombies weapon helps to make up for it too; the weapon seems to fire a small ball which then expands in to a larger horizontal beam. It is said to be a one-hit kill at round 11, so although its effectiveness may be at doubt, you can’t say that this isn’t an original weapon!
Does Supremacy Seem Like a DLC Worth Getting?
If you have yet to buy any of the DLC’s but are wondering whether to get Supremacy, I would probably advise against it. I would instead urge you to get Havoc or Ascendance instead, as you get a bonus multiplayer weapon too – if I had to choose between the two, I’d go for Ascendance since the bonus weapon you get with it (the OHM) is a pretty over-powered weapon. Click here to look at my post on Ascendance.
However, whether this DLC looks good is another question. Personally, I really like the looks of Supremacy, as the maps look really cool, as well as the new zombie features. If you have the season pass, then I think you should look forwards to some great DLC.
If you are yet to get the season pass and are considering buying some DLC, I would highly recommend to just go for the season pass instead of singularly buying a DLC pack, because this way you’ll save money compared to if you were to buy all of the DLC’s separately.
Also, lets say if you were to go ahead and buy the Supremacy DLC right now, but when the next DLC comes out you think to yourself that you really like the looks of it so you go ahead and buy it. Wouldn’t you rather have got the season pass instead for paying just a few bucks extra and get the previous two DLC’s too?
That’s just my insight on it and don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with just buying one DLC pack if you’re tight on cash or particularly like the look of that one, it’s just that getting the season pass gives you the full experience for a discounted price!
