Onslaught, the previous DLC pack released for Call of Duty: Ghosts, included Michael Myers from Halloween so anything is possible, right? It seems that Infinity Ward is striving to keep the 80’s alive again as the upcoming DLC pack, entitled Devastation, will not only add new multiplayer maps, a new Extinction chapter and a new weapon, but the Predator as well. Devastation will release on April 3rd.
There is no word yet if the Predator will actually be a playable character or just an NPC causing havoc in specific maps. Devastation will introduce 4 new multiplayer maps with Ruins, Behemoth, Collision and Unearthed — the latter of which is based on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 map Dome.
Mayday, the latest chapter in Ghosts‘ Extinction mode, will also be included and according to Totalxbox.com will feature a 100-foot tall alien-style kraken boss. That’s pretty damn exciting, if I do say so myself. You’ll also have access to a hybrid SMG/Assault Rifle called The Ripper.
If you’re looking for a little more detail on each of the four multiplayer maps, this comes straight from Totalxbox.com —
Situated on a massive excavation vehicle, Behemoth is a narrow multi-level map, giving players flanking opportunities with danger around every corner. Complete the map’s Field Order and take control of an attack helicopter able to rain down destruction from above with devastating grenade launchers.
A mountaintop Mayan ruin overrun by the jungle, Ruins’ skyline is dominated by an ominous volcano on the brink of eruption. This map blends the verticality of a dominant temple with tight subterranean sections.
Inspired by Dome, the fan-favorite map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Unearthed drops players in the heart of an alien dig site. This small map asks players to navigate through Cryptid artifacts, a mix of high-tech HAZMAT facilities, scientific equipment and vehicles. Players skilled enough to complete Unearthed’s unique Field Order will be able to unleash three Cryptid alien creatures, delivering an explosive end to their foes.
The mangled remains of cargo ship crashed into a New York bridge, ripe with burnt out vehicles and shipping containers strewn across the deck, this map provides the ideal theatre for close-quarters combat. Unlock the map’s unique Killstreak by completing the Field Order, and use the full arsenal of an A-10 Warthog aircraft to strafe the full length of the map.
I know our own FPS guru Shayne “stspip” will be picking this up day one, but what about you guys?
