Call of Duty Ghosts: Devastation

The wait for COD-playing PS3 and PS4 owners is over today, as the Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion DLC is finally available for both platforms. The latest COD Ghosts DLC had been on Xbox 360 and Xbox One for the past month.

Windows PC gamers can also play the Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion DLC today. The new content is included as part of the COD Ghosts Season Pass across all platforms, or available as a stand-alone purchase for $14.99.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion is the third batch of DLC for the game and follows in the footsteps of the “Devastation” DLC shown above. All told, the Call of Duty Ghosts: Invasion DLC includes four new multiplayer maps, new Field Orders, new customizations and “Episode 3: Awakening,” the next chapter in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative.

Invasion’s four new small-to-medium-sized multiplayer maps each have a distinct look, feel and unique Field Order and killstreak. Departed is a medium-sized map set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos celebration. The colorfully decorated streets, vendor carts and storefronts provide ample cover for run-and-gunners, and players that 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.

The second new map, Pharaoh, is 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. Inside the palace, gamers will battle through multiple chambers ideal for close-quarters combat and short-range weapons, all under the watchful eye of Anubis, the half-jackal/half-human, protector of the dead, who will handsomely reward players who unlock this map’s Field Order.

The third map in Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion is called Mutiny. As you might gather from the title, the map takes place on a remote Caribbean island harboring an eerie pirate hideout, complete with abandoned trading posts and prison cells. Speed and stealth are a must as players navigate the narrow and intertwining pathways. However, the pirate ship moored in the center of the map will become vulnerable to enemy fire from the numerous flanking routes created by the map’s horseshoe shaped dock. Players that unlock Mutiny’s Field Order will find themselves escorted by two ethereal ghost pirates, who will happily send enemy combatants down to Davey Jones’ locker on their behalf.

Invasion’s fourth multiplayer map is a refreshed version of Favela from Modern Warfare 2. Since its original release, the Brazilian shantytown has seen substantial change. 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, with ramshackle scaffolding creating varied pathways between structures, and enemy snipers taking advantage of the long sightlines. Players who complete the Field Order in “Favela” will be able to call in heavy air support from a nearby Y-8 Gunship to bring the rain with a 105mm cannon, a 40mm auto-cannon and a 25mm cannon.

Finally, the Extinction Episode 3: Awakening sees the team descending into the perilous alien underworld to strike at the subterranean fortress of the Ancestors responsible for 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.

Alongside the core Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion DLC, PlayStation and PC owners can also nab some new Customization Items. The Resistance Squad Pack lets players create their own multiplayer soldiers with three interchangeable heads and four uniforms ($3.99), while the Flags of the World Pack lets players add individual patches, playercards and backgrounds for England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Mexico, USA, Brazil, Australia, Japan, UK, Russia, Netherlands, Portugal, Columbia, Argentina, Canada, Ireland and Sweden. There’s also a unique reticle and flags of the world weapon camo ($1.99).
