ORIGINAL STORY 18/03/2015: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's second DLC add-on, Ascendance, is due on 31st March for Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Grappling hooks are the new jetpacks.

These things always have a 30-day exclusivity period, so we'll be shocked if it doesn't arrive on PlayStation consoles and PC the week after that expires.

Ascendance will contain four new multiplayer maps, a new Exo grappling ability, the next chapter in the co-op Exo Zombies saga, a new weapon (the OHM directed energy light machine gun/shotgun hybrid) and the OHM Werewolf custom weapon variant.

The new stages include Perplex, a Sydney-based small to medium sized map focusing on verticality around a five-story apartment complex; Site 244, a stage set around a crashed UFO at the foot of Mt. Rushmore; Climate, a futuristic man-made utopia with a dynamic river that changes its routes across various channels; and Chop Shop, a medium sized symmetrical map set in a black market exoskeleton industrial complex.

The new Exo Zombies episode will see the return of playable John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and Jon Bernthal as they encounter new breeds of the undead and new weapons to kill them with.

Activision will reveal the first in-game footage of Ascendance on Sunday, 29th March, during the 2015 Call of Duty Championship, which will be viewable on Xbox Live.
