As of earlier today, Call of Duty: Ghosts' first DLC, Onslaught, is available for PC and both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. About time, seeing as how the content has been on Xbox 360 and Xbox One for almost a month.
For those who've been in the dark, the Onslaught pack includes four new multiplayer maps, a new weapon, and the first of four Extinction episodes. Not surprisingly, one of the four maps for competitive multiplayer is a throwback to an older Call of Duty map, one that fans really liked.
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.
As for the new gun, that'd be "Maverick," a dual-purpose weapon for multiplayer. Yes, you can use it either as an Assault Rile or Sniper Rifle. As for the Extinction episode, Nightfall, that'll introduce players to an out-of-control alien situation up in Alaska. Because scientists always think they have a handle on extraterrestrials until someone loses an eye.
Earlier this week, Activision actually announced plans to discontinue the Call of Duty ELITE service, making Friday, February 28, the last day it'll be active. After that, its various features will just be incorporated into Call of Duty: Ghosts.
