Call of Duty®: Ghosts Onslaught DLC Pack Now Available
for PlayStation and Windows PC Players
First DLC Pack Features Four New Multiplayer Maps, All-New “Maverick” Dual-Purpose
Weapon, Iconic Horror Character Michael Myers, and
“Nightfall” – the First Installment in Extinction’s Four-Part Episodic Story
Call of Duty: Ghosts players on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC can
now purchase the first DLC Pack – Onslaught. The new DLC Pack delivers four unique
and classically designed Call of Duty multiplayer maps, the all-new “Maverick”
Assault Rifle/Sniper Rifle, and the first installment in Extinction’s four-part
episodic narrative, “Episode 1: Nightfall.”
New multiplayer maps in Onslaught include:
– Fog: 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, in this chilling
homage to classic horror films.
-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: Is a 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 also arms players with the Maverick, a deadly new, dual-purpose addition
to their multiplayer arsenal. Outfitted with a lightweight wood stock, players can
choose to use the Maverick as either an Assault Rifle or Sniper Rifle, depending
on their tactical needs.
Anchoring Onslaught is “Episode 1: Nightfall,” the first installment in Extinction’s
new, four-part episodic narrative. As the initial foray into this single, connected
story that will be told across each DLC Pack launch throughout the year, “Episode
1: 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.
Fans can purchase Onslaught as either a standalone DLC Pack for a suggested retail
price of $14.99, or purchase the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass. Season Pass
holders 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
Call of Duty: Ghosts game sold separately and is required to play this DLC Pack.
