Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC Coming To Xbox Live This Month

Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC Coming To Xbox Live This Month

Onslaught is the first of four Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC releases planned for 2014.

The first Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC release will be coming later this month, adding four new maps to the rotation, a new dual-purpose rifle and the first part of the Call of Duty: Extinction narrative arc. The maps are designed to provide fast-paced, small-to-medium scale battles and each offers a unique environment and Field Order reward, the best of which is unquestionably the ability to become Michael Myers of Halloween fame, complete with mask, axe and creeptastic theme song warning everyone else in the field that big trouble is coming.

In the firearms department, Onslaught adds the Maverick, a double-duty rifle that capably fills both the assault and sniper roles. And finally, there's "Nightfall," the first of four episodes in the Extinction storyline that will go deeper into the origins of the new alien threat. A small recon team must infiltrate a secret research facility in Alaska to retrieve intel and eradicate the alien infestation - which includes two new Cryptids, one of them a three-storey-tall behemoth that's the biggest boss monster Infinity Ward has ever created.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught launches on January 28 exclusively for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Other platforms will follow.

The whole Micheal Myers thing is so silly it just might work.
Call of Duty at this point should just completely stop any form of realism and just embraces all of this silly.

With any sort of luck, they'll just go full Ace Combat on the series and embrace the crazy.

... The good ones, not that... thing that was released recently.

"I'm really looking forward to the weapons DLC because it's not just a single weapon it's actually two weapons"
"You can become Michael Myers"

Why no, we haven't resorted to daft gimmicks to sell our DLC, whatever would make you think that?!?

Although credit where credit is due, it's nice to see they actually thought about adding specific sniper points to the maps, rather than just sticking them into 1 level corridor CQCfests with no thought. Good to see standard practice from 1990s map design being remembered and mentioned like it's a unique selling point.

4 maps, a gun, and a new gamemode. I wonder how much it will cost?
