Call Of Duty Ghosts DLC Release: Invasion Hits PC & PlayStation July 3 [VIDEO]
Good news for non-Xbox Call of Duty: Ghosts players. Developer Infinity Ward confirmed that Microsoft's timed exclusivity on the Invasion DLC comes to a close early next month, and players rocking a PlayStation 3, 4, or PC can get their hands on the latest map pack July 3.
That's the word from the Call of Duty Community page, where the announcement was made earlier today. Invasion is number three of four scheduled pieces of DLC for Activision's infamous shooter, and with its release on PC and PlayStation consoles, we should be hearing about the final DLC, Nemesis, PDQ.
If you've missed any of our coverage on Invasion, here's a recap:
Departed: Set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration, where players who complete the map's unique Field Order will unlock the Death Mariachi killstreak.
Armed with dual-wielding pistols, the Death Mariachi settles scores, with each kill turning enemy players into another member of the band, and a temporary squad mate.
Pharaoh: The abandoned archeological site of an ancient Egyptian palace. Players will have to be on the lookout for collapsing monuments and urns full of flesh-eating scarabs, among other surprises in this multi-level map.
Players who unlock this map's Field Order will be handsomely rewarded with the Blessing of Anubis, the half jackal/half human protector of the dead.
Mutiny: A remote Caribbean island harboring an eerie pirate hideout complete with abandoned trading posts and prison cells, where speed and stealth are a must as players navigate the narrow and intertwining pathways.
Players that unlock "Mutiny's" Field Order will find themselves escorted by two ethereal ghost pirates who will happily send enemy players down to Davey Jones' locker on their behalf.
Favela: A refreshed version of the fan-favorite map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, this Brazilian shantytown has seen substantial change since its original release. Buildings once under construction are now complete, while others have crumbled into a state of disrepair.
Players must avoid falling to their death as they traverse the map from one building to the next, avoiding enemy snipers taking advantage of the map's long sightlines. Players who complete "Favela's" Field Order will be able to call in air support from a nearby Y-8 Gunship.
Episode 3: Awakening - "In Awakening, the team descends into the perilous alien underworld to strike at the subterranean fortress of the Ancestors - the mysterious puppet-masters behind the Cryptid invasion. Armed with a range of new hi-tech weapons and equipment, the team must penetrate a series of defensive barriers to reach the Ark and unlock the secrets of the Ancestors' psychic powers. As the final battle draws closer, the fate of the Earth and the future of the human race hang in the balance." Awakening, introduces three new Cryptid species, each posing a unique and lethal threat: the flying Gargoyle, swarming Bombers armed with explosive strikes, and a blue variation of the Rhino Cryptid called the Mammoth, which guard the Ancestors' lair. Schematics, allowing for traps and upgrades, also return in this episode.
Season Pass holders get free access to the DLC, while everyone else will have to fork over $14.99. You can get a peek at "Awakening," in addition to the maps, in the official trailer below.
