Santa Monica, CA – March 6, 2014 – Gamers clamoring for all-new Call of Duty®:
Ghosts content can set their calendars for Devastation, the second of four massive
DLC Packs, set to launch on April 3rd. Available first, exclusively on Xbox Live for
both Xbox One and Xbox 360, Devastation delivers a new assortment of content to Call
of Duty®’s definitive online multiplayer experience. The DLC Pack features four new
small to medium-sized multiplayer maps, including a mountaintop Mayan temple, a
mangled container ship, a giant excavation digger in South America, and a fully
reimagined version of Infinity Ward’s fan-favorite map “Dome” from Call of Duty®:
Modern Warfare® 3 – each with their own unique Field Order. There’s also the all-new
“Ripper” tactical 2-in-1 weapon, and “Episode 2: Mayday” – the gripping second
chapter in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative which includes multiple
mod-able versions of the Venom-X weapon, and closes with a battle against a
monstrous, 100-foot tall Cryptid alien boss, aptly named the Kraken.

Additionally, as a special offer available starting today for players on Xbox Live,
Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass owners get instant access to Devastation’s
all-new “Ripper” weapon, which features the unique ability to quickly convert from
Sub Machine-Gun (SMG) to Assault Rifle and back again in the midst of battle, and
can be used in all Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer maps.

Devastation is available a la carte for a suggested retail price of $14.99, or as
part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass, which gives fans access to four
epic Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Packs** planned to release throughout 2014 at the
discounted* suggested retail price of $49.99. Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass
holders also get instant access to the Team Leader Digital Pack, which comes with a

multiplayer demo will be available for gamers to experience over the weekend,
starting tomorrow, Friday, March 7, 2014 and running through Monday, March 10, 2014.
Gamers will be able to jump on Xbox Live and try out Ghosts multiplayer, including
three multiplayer maps – Strikezone, Warhawk, and Prison Break; three multiplayer
modes – Team Deathmatch, Domination and Search & Rescue; and the original Extinction
game mode – Point of Contact, all at no cost. Simply sign-in, download the Call of
Duty: Ghosts multiplayer demo, and get right into a match against friends, family
and anyone else enjoying the free demo this weekend.

“The Devastation DLC Pack continues the fast-paced, fun and imaginative gameplay
that Infinity Ward and Neversoft began with Onslaught,” said Daniel Suarez, Vice
President of Production, Activision Publishing, Inc. “Ghosts’ DLC is much more than
just new multiplayer maps. The teams have added new weapons; the next intense
continuation in Extinction’s four-part, episodic narrative; and another epic, action
film character soon to be revealed. Devastation, like Onslaught before it, is a ton
of fun, and we can’t wait for the community to experience it all.”

Devastation delivers four distinctive new maps with the fast-paced gameplay Call of
Duty fans love, each with their own surprises. The first map, “Ruins,” is located on
a Mexican peninsula and set amidst the remnants of a mountaintop Mayan temple, with
multiple levels providing verticality for longer-range weapons, and underground
pathways perfect for close-quarters encounters. Savvy players that find and complete
the unique Field Order will be able to trigger the map’s volcano to erupt, and enjoy
watching enemy players attempt to take cover as fiery debris fall from the sky.

The map “Collision,” is a mangle of debris scattered atop a container ship pinned
underneath a crippled bridge in New York. This small map is ideal for run-and-gun
tactics. Players that dominate “Collision” and complete the map’s specific Field
Order will be able take control of a heavily armed aircraft and rain down
destruction from above.

“Behemoth” takes the battle aboard a massive excavation platform in South America.
Long sight lines open this map up to longer-range weapons, while the compact
interiors of the control rooms are ideal for SMG’s and Shotguns. Completing
“Behemoth’s” Field Order will allow players to control an attack helicopter armed
with a deadly, armor-piercing Rail Gun as it circles the excavator searching for
enemy combatants.

Devastation’s fourth map, “Unearthed,” drops players into a reimagined version of
“Dome,” the fan-favorite multiplayer map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. With a
new look and all-new secrets, “Unearthed” is a compact map for all player types, who
must navigate an alien artifact dig site in order to unlock the map’s Field Order
and unleash the power of the Cryptids, as well as locate the map’s secret alien

Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation also arms players with the “Ripper” – a new,
tactical 2-in-1 SMG/Assault Rifle that can be used in all of Ghosts’ multiplayer
maps. The “Ripper” is a highly unique weapon because of its ability to quickly
switch back and forth from SMG to Assault Rifle on the fly. A deadly addition to
Ghosts’ arsenal, the “Ripper” is the ideal companion across a variety of map types
and tactics, providing players unprecedented flexibility with medium to short-range
capability as an SMG, and medium to long-range as an Assault Rifle.

For Extinction fans, “Episode 2: Mayday,” highlights the Call of Duty: Ghosts
Devastation DLC Pack. Following the dramatic events that took place deep within the
Alaskan wilderness at the Nightfall Program research facility, the Quick Reaction
Force team now heads onboard a mysterious Chinese research vessel drifting abandoned
in the Tasman Sea in the South Pacific Ocean. Players will uncover a much deeper
conspiracy as they pursue Captain Archer and discover what has become of Doctor
Cross. Armed with multiple mod-able versions of the Venom-X weapon powered with
Cryptid technology, players will come up against yet another new alien species
referred to as the “Seeder,” as well as go head-to-head with a massive, 100-foot
tall Cryptid enemy from the depths of the ocean…the “Kraken.”
