Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC release time for PST, EST, GMT

By Alan Ng - Jan 27, 2015

It has been a long time in waiting, but thankfully we are almost there. It’s time for Xbox owners to get their first taste of Advanced Warfare add-on content, as we look ahead to the Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC release time for PST, EST and GMT timezones.

As far as we’re aware, Sledgehammer has given no indication exactly on when the first piece of content will be available. We can see that many users are already bombarding the personal Twitter accounts of Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield for information on when the pack will be out.

However for the moment there has been no heads-up. What we can do though is give you an estimation of when the Havoc DLC release time in UK and US could be, based on previous trends.

If Sledgehammer are on a release schedule from Activision and plan to launch their packs at roughly the same time as Infinity Ward and Treyarch, then we can offer some useful information at the very least.

havoc-dlc-release-time

We told you in the past that content for COD Ghosts released at around 1am Pacific Time, 4am Eastern Time and 9am in the UK – as a rough guideline.

When looking back at the Devastation map pack release for Ghosts, the content arrived just after 1am Pacific Time and so did subsequent content releases.

Obviously we can’t guarantee that Havoc will follow the same pattern as it’s the first map pack from a brand new developer. It does however give you a heads-up that you will probably need to stay up past midnight if you plan to download Havoc the minute it is live.

We’ll update this if we hear anything from SH Games regarding the set time. In the meantime, let us know your last minute expectations for the content – remember, live on Xbox One and Xbox 360 first only.

Which map are you looking forward to playing the most, multiplayer or zombies? Let us know when you are downloading on your time zone and the file size to give everyone else a heads-up.

UPDATE: A GameStop listing for the DLC suggests that the content will be out at 11pm CST on January 26. This is for digital copies, but if it is also talking about the general release then we could see the content become available at 9pm Pacific Time on Monday 26, 12am Eastern Time and 5am for everyone in the UK (Tuesday morning).

If this information is true, then that is the earliest time that we have seen for a new COD map pack release so far. In other words, the content may be coming in around three hour’s time!

UPDATE 2: Ok, GameStop is confusing things for everyone it seems. Glen Schofield has just put this out on Twitter.

1AM relates to PST, meaning that our original estimations in the article above were correct. SH Games are obviously the ones to believe rather than Gamestop, so as it stands – Havoc is out at 1am PST, 4am Eastern and 9am GMT.

UPDATE 3: Havoc should be live for most of you now. We wrote in a separate report that the file size is 6.73GB. Have fun with zombies everyone and let us know how you get on.

  • Matthew

    I cant even launch the game… Anytime i do it freezes at the CALL OF DUTY AW screen

  • ehh

    am able to play EXOZOMBIES local play on XBOX360 with a diff gamertag that does not have an xboxlive account..i tried the same thing for XBOXONE but i am unable to play any exo zombie online or local play. only the exozombies story video plays for XBOXONE

  • ground pound

    When I tried to download the dlc it made me reinstall the whole game and updates

  • james

    literly i have to sign out of my account every time

    • Ladymumbles

      It’s stupid ain’t it! Think it’s a plea to get people to invest in Xbox ones

  • jay

    It won’t.let me buy it I got $15 and.every time I click confirm it.pops up how do you want to pay the rest

    • JLenzy01

      That’s because you have to pay taxes, which means total is going to be a little more than $15

      • jay

        I know that it’s a penny taxe I got $15.99 enough for it

  • workdlcwork

    tried everything but new profile trick for xbox one..guna hookup 360 n 360COD and download havoc on the that…so far soo good…we,ll see……………….

  • Zachary

    How hard is it to make a working dlc WTF.

  • Easton Scott Landon Dillard

    Still don’t work!!!!!!

  • KyleSetFire

    For me the sign in trick got me into zombies, but didnt get me into a XBL game.

    • Ladymumbles

      When you get to xbox live etc on zombies press middle button on control then sign out then sign in to your normal Xbox live profile and then it works :)

      • Lee

        Tried to click local play on zombies still didn’t work, I purchased the pass too and everything!

  • james

    sign in with a different account and it work wtf!!! omg!!! i hate the activision corrpirasion!!!!!!!

    • Easton Scott Landon Dillard

      After can u switch to ur Xbox live account

  • Easton Scott Landon Dillard

    Zombies still don’t work!!!!

  • Ladymumbles

    That sign in with a new profile works! Now on zombies :)

  • mosesbadmofo

    sinister is right, works. Disconnect just from internet but not profile, open game click zombies, watch video then connect internet back on to Xbox live and good to go! Thanks Sin!!

    • dbzgod

      What video

      • mosesbadmofo

        Video is into to exo zombies story, last couple mins then goes back to game screen. Have to be signed in profile but not connected to xbox live, for me anyhow worked.

        • dbzgod

          Ohh ok

        • Ladymumbles

          Yeah same here Moses everytime I have to sign in as guest then once watched video and goes to menu have to sign into my own account. Stupid! Gutted iv paid for season pass definitely won’t be in future.

  • monkey

    I am having the same problems

  • Edgar Pichardo

    I’m having issues being able to use the exo zombies game mode it’s frustrating bc it’s wat Ive been waiting for this entire time I need to know how to please fix this

  • Luke Taiweherua Devlin-Warren

    I know how to work it!!! Ok what you do is at the main memu you sighn out then sighn in at the main menu but you have to make a new profile. Once you create a new profile you then click on zombies and it should show you the video and then to the zombies menu, once in the zombies menu you can sighn in and enjoy!!! <3

    • james

      bro 5 hours later and this worked omg!!!!! i could kill

  • Claire Eden

    Have same issues … contacted xbox support who say its not their problem – clearing casche wont work nor will re-loading it work sadly …. have a very frustrated hubby who is off & desperate to play
    sinisterhills fix doesn’t work either – there is obviously an error with the download & unfortuneatly there is no way to contact activision (xbox supports suggestion!!) its a horrid wait for the makers to get ontop of it!! gggrrrr
    Any new news will be greatfull accepted

    • james

      i had the same problem eventually i got on the store and i am downloading the havoc dlc pack now

    • Austin Gore

      Delete the seasons pass then ‘re download it

  • james

    nuffin i haven done in 4 hours has worked

  • Luke Taiweherua Devlin-Warren

    That didnt work either

  • bones

    Sledgehammer says to clear your system cache and everything should work as it’s suppose to

    • Easton Scott Landon Dillard

      Will it harm my Xbox 360 and what is cache

      • bones

        No it won’t harm anything all you have to do is go to settings/console settings/storage/hard drive/then should be Y for device options or storage options and then clear cache if I remember right I am not at my Xbox right now I am at work. A friend of mine said he has to do this a few times along with powering on and off his console bit it eventually worked for him. I hope you all get them going soon

        • Easton Scott Landon Dillard

          It didn’t work!!!

  • Luke Taiweherua Devlin-Warren

    Sinisterhill it wont work bro it just comes up with a black screen and just stays like that :/

  • Easton Scott Landon Dillard

    How do u disconnect from Xbox live

  • Sinisterhill

    easton read my comment its simple

  • Easton Scott Landon Dillard

    • Joshua

      How do you sign out of just Xbox Live without signing out of the entire profile?

  • tseg

    so pissed off never will I ever purchase anything from thiscompany again

  • KyleSetFire

    Im trying the full delete/reinstall.

  • KyleSetFire

    Sledgehammer really dropped the ball here. Their first DLC and it doesn’t even work correctly. Epic fail

    • tseg

      that’s what im saying

  • Joshua

    Who’s up for some zombies? Have a mic ready. Gamer Tag is NRG Rush 13

  • Renee Kokowski

    I’m not able to play zombies? The new multiplayer maps work though

  • This Guy Tom

    I still have to pay for the map pack even when I have the season pass!! I’ve restarted my xbox and re-downloaded the pass as well as updating the game and still I have to pay!!

    • tseg

      did it work after you payed?

    • James Dornan

      Have you tried both the in-game store and the marketplace?

      • This Guy Tom

        Yes I checked both stores and still I have to pay the $15

        • tseg

          did it work though?

        • This Guy Tom

          I don’t want to pay when I have the pass…

        • James Dornan

          I would say try clearing the cache on your hard drive then try it but that’s just my suggestion idk if it would work but it’s worth a shot

  • Daniel

    My zombies won’t work any tips?

  • dbzgod

    Add me for exo zombies Drawn Needs

    • dbzgod

      Must have a mic

  • JordanR

    I have the season pass but it won’t let me play zombies it’s telling me I need the content, even though I already have the season pass

    • dbzgod

      Just download the compatibility pak e and then you have to download the havoc DLC pack

      • JordanR

        It comes with the season pass though, it takes me to the store to get the season pass and the I press to buy and it says you already own the AW season pass

  • Dylan

    It’s still not working

  • Austin Gore

    It worked for me so just go to your storage and delete advanced warfare and do the same thing with the cache and then just ‘re download everything again.

  • Austin Gore

    Let me know if it helped!
