The first Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC pack, Onslaught, will be making its way to PC, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 by the end of the month. February 27, to be more exact. That's one day short of being a month after the add-on's Xbox release, per Call of Duty tradition.
The Onslaught pack includes four maps for competitive multiplayer, the first episode of the Extinction narrative, and a new gun named "Maverick." Like always, one of the four maps is a revamp of an older one, this time "Scrapyard" from Modern Warfare 2.
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.
As for Nightfall, that's the first episode in an Extinction four-parter. In it, you and your friends must take down an alien menace up in Alaska, where scientists have lost control of a study at their facility. Go figure, that sort of thing never goes well.
In the past, timed exclusivity for Call of Duty DLC on Xbox lasted about a month. Looks like Microsoft and Activision are keeping that pattern.
