Advanced Warfare’s Exo Zombies gets a “mini boss” in Ascendance DLC

When Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Ascendance DLC drops this week, players will be going up against some tougher challenges in Exo Zombies mode.

“It’s all zombies, all of the time,” says High Moon Studios Matt Tieger, head of the team focusing purely on zombies play for Ascendance.

“This was our first chance to run with this. There’s a couple of key areas where we’ve added some new pieces to what was already working.”

The most significant change is the introduction of a mini boss, something that should change the way players work co-operatively.

“We added what most of our focus testers are referring to a mini boss,” he says. "Around wave ten there’s a big guy with a riot shield and hammer. He changes the co-op play style.

“In Exo Zombies often players split apart and take the threats between the four of them. If you do that with this guy you’re going to have a hard time. He’s really a 4 vs 1 strategy. It requires focused fire.”
