'Call Of Duty Ghosts' DLC Invasion: Out Now Exclusive To Xbox One And 360, Offers Four New Maps & Awakening Storyline [VIDEO]
Better hurry up and get over to Xbox Live, because Invasion, the recently announced and third piece of DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts is now available on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
While Invasion doesn't have a new weapon like Onslaught and Devastation, Invasion still offers players the expected four new multiplayer maps, and a new episode for the game's "Extinction" mode. We've been offering peeks at the DLC's additions over the last few days, but here's everything there is to know about the DLC in one place.
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.
Extinction 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. Invasion's release date for PC and PlayStation platforms hasn't been given yet, but is expected in early July. Check out the official trailer below.
