Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – Reckoning is the fourth and final expansion for the popular shooter by Sledgehammer Games. Similarly to its predecessors (Havoc, Ascendance and Supremacy), it introduces additional maps, a new episode of Exo Zombies and other minor elements.
The main attraction of Reckoning are four new locations. Fracture features a sub polar survival facility, located on a moving glacier, whose ice plates sometimes collide. During such an “accident”, the ice may break and one may fall into icy water. Overload is a map located in the New Baghdad, one of the districts of the Iraqi capital. It is a medium sized location with fountains, gardens and plasma lamps that can be used to dispose of nearby enemies. The place is perfect for medium and long range battles. Quarantine is an island that went through an epidemic outbreak. Now, only a single bio-research facility remains intact. And finally, the Swarm, situated in Seoul, the capital of South Korea. It is a very tight location, full of narrow passages and rooms.
Another element of Reckoning is Descent, the last episode of the Exo Zombies mode. The protagonists, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, Jon Bernthal, and Bruce Campbell, were just about to leave the Atlas’ aircraft carrier, when they discovered that one of their former team mates, John Malkovich, had been turned into a zombie, which means more trouble for everyone. While fighting new enemies, we can use a new, previously unavailable weapon, the Trident Reflected Energy Weapon.
