Call of Duty: Ghosts players on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC will have access to the first DLC Pack – Onslaught – on February 27, 2014. Onslaught DLC Pack contains 4 brand new unique multiplayers maps, a multi-purpose weapon called the ‘Maverick’ which is an Assault-Rifle and a Sniper Rifle and last but not least, the 1st of 4 episodic narratives, “Episode 1: Nightfall.” New multiplayer maps in Onslaught include:
- Fog: A chilling homage to classic horror films, set alongside the banks of a murky lake, players skilled enough to pick up the map’s unique Field Order can become the embodiment of evil and don the mask of Michael Myers, one of cinema’s most iconic horror characters, as the entire soundscape changes to the eerily familiar Halloween Theme music.
- BayView: A coastal Californian boardwalk that offers players fast-paced run-and-gun gameplay amid a seaside town. Clever players will be able to climb onto the map’s moving trolley to engage enemies, as well as call in devastating artillery strikes from the Naval Destroyer anchored offshore.
- Containment: This map drops players into a raging battle amidst a war-torn Mexican village, where the action centers on the crippled remains of a small bridge holding a hi-jacked truck leaking radioactive material.
- Ignition: Onslaught’s fourth map is a completely reimagined version of “Scrapyard” – the fan-favorite multiplayer map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, placing players into a deserted space launch facility with frenetic action amongst abandoned warehouses, flame trenches, a massive transport crawler, and dynamic map elements that can take players out if they’re not paying close attention.
Onslaught gives us a new weapon. First of it’s kind, in the history of Call of Duty. A multi-purpose weapon which can used as an Assault Rifle and a Sniper Rifle. Whatever suits the player’s playing style.
Last but not least, we get a new Extinction map. “Episode 1: Nightfall,” is the 1st of 4 episodic narrative. In Episode 1: Nightfall, players start off at a remote research facility hidden deep within the Alaskan wilderness, where a small recon team must infiltrate the facility to find out what happened to the mysterious Nightfall Program. The players are introduced to new characters, plus two all-new alien species, and debuts an exclusive Venom-X weapon that pulverizes the Cryptids.
Fans can get their hands on the new DLC pack, Onslaught, for $14.99. Fans can also get the DLC via Season Pass. The players who have purchased the season pass not only get all four epic DLC Packs for the discounted suggested retail price of $49.99, but they also get instant access to the downloadable multiplayer map, “Free Fall,” as well as the Team Leader Digital Pack, which comes with a unique multiplayer character head, weapon camo, reticle, player patch, player card and player background.
