As was suggested by a leak last week, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will get a Zombies mode similar to the one we’ve seen in previous installments. The news was confirmed by a press release from GameStop, which stated the mode will be a part of the game’s $ 50 Season Pass.
Going by the press release alone, it’s not clear if the Zombies mode is exclusive to the Season Pass (which would be a first for the series), or if it’s only adding additional maps to a mode that’s included in the main game. We’ve reached out to Activision to clarify and will update this post with anything we hear back.
The Season Pass also includes four pieces of DLC: Havoc, Ascendance, Supremacy, and Reckoning, each with their own multiplayer maps. Activision has yet to say when it will release the DLC. As previously announced, the Atlas Gorge multiplayer map (the remake of CoD 4’s Pipeline) will be made available right from launch for anyone who buys the Season Pass, and you can see it in action in the trailer above.

Advanced Warfare launches November 4 (get it November 3 by preordering) for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4, but not Wii U. Activision recently announced a special promotion whereby last-generation Advanced Warfare owners can upgrade to the current-generation version for free, with some limitations.
