Infinity Ward has announced new details about their second DLC pack for the recent Call of Duty: Ghosts, this time introducing four new maps and part two of the alien-killing Extinction mode.
The DLC Pack features four new small to medium-sized multiplayer maps, including a mountaintop Mayan temple, a mangled container ship, a giant excavation digger in South America, and a fully reimagined version of Infinity Ward's fan-favorite map "Dome" from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - each with their own unique Field Order. There's also the all-new "Ripper" tactical 2-in-1 weapon, and "Episode 2: Mayday" - the gripping second chapter in Extinction's four-part episodic narrative which includes multiple mod-able versions of the Venom-X weapon, and closes with a battle against a monstrous, 100-foot tall Cryptid alien boss, aptly named the Kraken.
As a bonus to Season Pass holders on Xbox Live, Infinity Ward are also offering instanct access to the DLC's new "Ripper" weapon, which features the unique ability to quickly convert from Sub Machine-Gun to Assault Rifle and back again in the midst of battle, and can be used in all multiplayer maps.
"The Devastation DLC Pack continues the fast-paced, fun and imaginative gameplay that Infinity Ward and Neversoft began with Onslaught," said Daniel Suarez, Vice President of Production, Activision Publishing, Inc. "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."
Alongside the four new multiplayer maps, the new DLC will also introduce the second part to the new Extinction mode, titled Mayday. Following on from the previous events, players will be tasked with taking on multiple new alien enemies as they try to board the mysterious Chinese research vessel found adrift and abandoned in the Tasman Sea. The new DLC will not only introduce a new storyline, but this time players will also get the chance to fire off the new mod-able Venom-X weapon and fight against the 100-foot tall Cryptid enemy known as the "Kraken." Scary stuff.
