Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC Out Now For PS3, PS4, and Windows
If you’re a Call of Duty: Ghosts fan on PS3, PS4, or PC, your wait is over. Now you can download the Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC pack.
As people with an Xbox have already learned, Onslaught gives you four more multiplayer maps to battle in, a new weapon that serves double-duty as an assault rifle and sniper rifle, the ability to stalk other players as horror-icon Michael Myers in one map, and the first part of a new storyline for Call of Duty: Ghosts’ soldiers-versus-aliens Extinction mode.
According to a press release, the new maps include:
Fog, a “chilling homage to classic horror films, set alongside the banks of a murky lake.” Players have the opportunity to transform into Halloween movie stalker Michael Myers, and hunt other players as the Halloween theme plays.
Bayview, a Californian boardwalk with some environmental tricks such as a moving trolley and the ability to call in artillery strikes from a Naval Destroyer.
Containment, which a battle in a Mexican village, “where the action centers on the crippled remains of a small bridge holding a hi-jacked truck leaking radioactive material.”
Ignition, which is “a completely reimagined version of “Scrapyard” – the fan-favorite multiplayer map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2,” which takes place in a deserted space launch facility with flame trenches and other dynamic elements that can take the player out before the enemy does if they aren’t careful.
The new weapon, The Maverick, can be selected in either the assault or sniper class, a first for Call of Duty.
For those that prefer a more story-based experience, the pack includes Nightfall, the first part of a four-part expansion of the Extinction storyline. According to the press release, Nightfall “takes fans to 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. This expanded Extinction storyline introduces new characters, plus two all-new alien species, and debuts an exclusive Venom-X weapon that pulverizes the Cryptids, as players delve deeper into the story of what happened following mankind’s first contact with the Cryptids in Colorado.”
Onslaught costs $15, but players can also buy a Call of Duty: Ghosts Season pass that will give them access to Onslaught and the other planned DLCs, Devastation, Invasion, and Nemesis, plus instant access to a special map, “Freefall,” and the Team Leader Digital Pack, which comes with a unique multiplayer character head, weapon camo, reticle, player patch, player card and player background.s, for $49.99.
