A couple of weeks ago, Activision revealed the upcoming DLC pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts, Devastation. This will be the second DLC pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts and will be coming to the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Devastation will include 4 new multiplayer maps as well as a new Episode for the Extinction Mode and a brand new Hybrid Weapon called the ‘Ripper’. Xbox One season pass owners have already gotten their hands on the new weapon.
Devastation brings us 4 brand new maps. The names of the maps are Behemoth, Collision, Ruins and Unearthed. These are small to medium size maps. Just what the fans have been asking for.
Behemoth – This map is very unique. Players battle it out on top of a huge Bucket-Wheel Excavator. Due to it’s long lines of sight, this map caters to long range players who like to use assault rifles, snipers or LMGs.
Collision – This map takes place aboard a container ship that has crashed into a bridge. A symmetrical, close range map which suits a run-and-gun playing style.
Ruins – Ruins is a maps that takes place in a Mayan Temple located in Mexico. If a player completes a Field Order, it will cause the nearby volcano to erupt and the debris from the volcano falls from the sky taking out enemies.
Unearthed – Infinity Ward is bring back a fan favourite from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Dome. If players complete a field order, they can call in three Seeker Aliens from Extinction that spawn in front of you and then spread out to kill your enemies. You can also get the Venom X from Extinction after completing the easter egg.
A new, one of a kind hybrid weapon which is an assault rifle as well as an SMG. Switch to the SMG for close quarters combat or switch to the assault rifle to kill an opponent at a distance.
Extinction Episode 2: Mayday:
Mayday picks up where Nightfall left off. Your mission is to rescue Dr. Samantha Cross from a Chinese ship. The new episode introduces a new alien called the Seeder. The Seeder shoots gas based projectiles similar to the Scorpio’s Acid based projectiles, the Seeder will also fire pods that turn into a mutant plant like creatures which act as a turret. You can also obtain a new version of the Venom X by picking up items and customising it.
