It’s become customary these days to release DLC packs for pretty much every game whether it’s indie or triple A. Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is certainly part of the latter category so it’s no surprise that DLC packs have already been planed. Publisher Activision announced the game’s Season Pass via a recent trailer that also contains the names of all four upcoming DLC packs. While we’re not sure about their contents, the packs will go by the names of Havoc, Ascendance, Supremacy and Reckoning. The first one is scheduled to arrive to the Xbox versions of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare in January while the PlayStation and PC will only be able to get it one month later.
Each DLC pack will cost 15 bucks, but if you plan on buying them all you might as well get the Season Pass for $50 and save $10 in the process. Buying the Season Pass will grant you access to each pack as soon as it becomes available on your platform, although some companies offer early access to DLC for Season Pass owners. We don’t know if Activision is adopting this model with Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, but we’ll likely to hear more about it at some point in the future. However, we do know that purchasing the Season Pass will grant you access to the Atlas Gorge multiplayer pack on launch day.
So, although buying the pass now won’t be very helpful as all the DLC are only scheduled to release next year, you can at least have one more map to play on when Call of Duty Advanced Warfare launches. Still not sure if that’s worth it though, but that’s entirely up to you. Call of Duty Advanced Warfare will be released on November 4 for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Pre-ordering the game will grant you access to the Day Zero Edition, which lets you start playing a day early on November 3.
