Call of Duty: Ghosts 'Devastation' DLC dated for April
Call of Duty: Ghosts' second DLC pack, Devastation, will arrive on Xbox platforms on April 3. The new DLC will offer four new "small to medium-sized" multiplayer maps, the 2-in-1 "Ripper" tactical weapon, and the second chapter in Extinction's four-part episodic story.
"The Devastation DLC Pack continues the fast-paced, fun and imaginative gameplay that Infinity Ward and Neversoft began with Onslaught," commented Activision VP of Production Daniel Suarez. "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."
The four maps included are:
- Ruins - 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.
- Collision - a mangle of debris scattered atop a containers hip pinned underneath a crippled bridge in New york. This map is ideal for run-and-gun-tactics.
- Behemoth - 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.
- Unearthed - a reimagined version of Modern Warfare 3's "Dome" map. It's compact for all player types, who must navigate an alient artifact dig site.
Meanwhile, Extinction players will get access to Episode 2: Mayday.
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."
Lastly, Devastation will include the "Ripper", a 2-in-1 SMG/Assault Rifle usable in all of Ghosts' multiplayer maps.
Devastation will be available standalone for $14.99 or as part of the Ghsots DLC Season Pass. It'll be released on April 3 for Xbox One and Xbox 360 only. Dates for the PlayStation and PC versions have not yet been announced.
