Among the latest Warzone maps is the 24-player Lente Missile Base, a large derelict defense facility at the edge of the Kaznan Jungle. The abandoned base is slowly being reclaimed by Helghan vegetation but ISA and Helghast troops discover that the facility is still operational. While most of the systems are functional opposing forces battle over missile control, which results in some heavy ordinance being launched. Anyone who is lumbering around in the underground exhaust vents are instantly deep fried.

Also featured in the “From the Ashes” pack is the Mobile Factory map. This new 16-player Guerrilla Warfare map is set aboad one of the large factory vehicles that is featured in the game's single player mode. The large fortress doubles as a parts production plant and would serve as an important strategic asset to either ISA or Helghast forces. Players seeking to claim control of the Mobile Factory should watch their step and utilize the on board minigun turrets to ward off attacking troops.

This is just a small dose of what the latest DLC looks like; more information and previews of the upcoming maps will be available soon.
