Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught arrives January 28th – Take a Look

Call of Duty: Ghosts first DLC pack is on its way with Multiplayer maps and more. Onslaught features four new Multiplayer Maps, an all-new dual purpose Assault Rifle/Sniper Rifle, and the first installment in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative. Take a look:

Here’s a bit more info we’ve received on these maps:

    • Fog: This small to medium-sized map drops you into a dark and eerie campsite set alongside a fog-shrouded lake. You’ll fight through twisting caves, tall grass, and seemingly abandoned structures each providing different gameplay engagements for all types of players. Inspired by classic horror films and terrifying encounters, Fog also harbors a dark secret…
    • BayView: Set on a coastal Californian boardwalk with seaside gift stores and an aquarium, BayView is a small, tight, fast-paced run-and-gun map. Moving through the boardwalk is a quaint trolley bus, providing cover, transport and even a handy moving platform for cleverly placed sentry guns and other Killstreaks. Although BayView has a lot of tight corners, it also features some elevated positions offering longer sightlines perfect for Marksman Rifles. Plus, players will want to be on the lookout for Field Orders that, when completed, will trigger a massive and deadly artillery strike from a Naval Destroyer anchored just offshore.
    • Containment: This smaller-sized map is set along a dry riverbed in a war-torn South American village. Battles will rage on both banks as well as along the riverbed itself, and at the heart of the map is a small bridge holding a hi-jacked truck containing leaking radioactive material. The bridge provides a quick route across the map but players will have to contend with the effects of the radiation. A myriad of abandoned bars, cafes, a church and pool hall provide strong close-quarters combat opportunities, while the elevated rooftop and open riverbed offer vantage points to players who prefer longer range engagements.
    • Ignition: Inspired by Scrapyard – the classic, fan-favorite Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map – Ignition drops players into an aging space launch facility in Florida. This map packs plenty of action both above and below ground thanks to a layout of abandoned buildings, flame trenches, and a massive transport crawler that provides elevated sightlines. With rockets crash-landing into the area of operations, players must be ready for fast run-and-gun combat, leveraging the environment’s debris fields and exposed fuselages for cover. Complicating the close-quarters combat, players can trigger two different rocket engine tests that send massive jets of fire to incinerate enemy players caught inside their blast radius.

About that new rifle: It’s called the Maverick. Players can choose to use the Maverick as either an Assault Rifle or Sniper Rifle, depending on their tactical needs.

Also part of this first content pack is Episode 1: Nightfall, a continuation of the Extinction experience. At a remote facility in the Alaskan wilderness, the shadowy Nightfall Program has been researching the origins of the “Alien” threat. When the scientists lose control, a small team of elite soldiers must retrieve the intel and exterminate hordes of savage creatures while surviving a three-story tall terror unlike anything they’ve faced before.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught is available January 28th, first on Xbox Live.

    Bring out a new Titanfall trailer instead

    • rsqviper

      Titanfall is 5 on 5. I can’t believe how lame that is. Seriously thinking about cancelling my preorder.

      • Anonymous

        You haven’t even played it don’t judge something by it’s cover I’ve never heard one bad thing from anybody who’s actually played it

      • EldritchWarlord

        6v6 actually, with several AI on each team as well.
        Sounds fine to me.

      • evilfangs .

        6v6 with AI and the players don’t need to control their Titans so there can be up to 42 enemy’s on the map at the same time.

      • MobileVortex

        I guess you’ve never played counterstrike.

      • andy

        Isn’t that normal for an Xbox game? What else were you expecting? Isn’t Gears on 360 the exact same? What game on 360 did 60 player online in 2008 like Resistance 2 did on PS3 or ever for that matter lol?

        • rsqviper

          WHO is saying 60 players? I’d much prefer 16 or 18 vs 10. This is a next gen game. How are the vs matches getting SMALLER in scale?

        • John Conor

          No it is lower than expected considering:
          Halo 1 was 8v8 on the original Xbox = 16 players
          Battlefield 4 can hit 16vs16 on Xbox 360 = 32 players
          So you would think it would be higher on a next gen system but from what I’ve read Titanfall won’t feel small since it is 12 humans, 12 bots, and up to 1 titan in follow mode for each person, bringing the total body count up to 48. So it should feel big, but I’m just not sure the AI will be as fun as a human enemy. Fingers Crossed!

    It might be a stupid questions but…
    Will this DLC be free or not?

    • http://twitter.com/lightsup55 Timothy Leucht

      Season Pass = $50 USD

      A portion of the description on Xbox LIVE Marketplace states:
      “The Call of Duty: Ghosts Season Pass is your access to four epic 2014 Map Packs at one great price*…
      *Save vs buying 4 map packs a la carte.”

      Based on previous Call of Duty titles that utilized a Season Pass, the individual map packs will probably be $15 USD EACH (i.e. $60 USD total).

      USD = United States Dollar

      • bat0nas

        Thanks.
        Ghosts was my first copy of COD. Didn’t know how DLCs were normally distributed.

  • http://twitter.com/rogXue rogXue

    Ooooo Michael Myers! Wait what does he mean by “the axe” that wasn’t his weapon…. but ooooo Michael Myers! :D I may actually buy my first COD dlc ever.

  • http://twitter.com/rogXue rogXue

    this a million times over. higher numbers in MP ruin a game for me. I don’t want to take 2 steps and die every 5-10 seconds in a game. lower numbers tends to mean more strategy required. I’m all for that.

  • Corellianrogue

    Off topic but Microsoft needs to do everything in its power to stop Sony getting Shenmue 3! #SaveShenmueFROMSony

    Seriously, it needs to be either a multiplatform game or an Xbox One exclusive that uses a joypad for general walking around and most of the fights but also Kinect 2 for some fight sequences and other QTEs as well as exploring rooms. It could have head tracking for looking around while exploring and motion controls for interacting with objects like opening doors and draws, picking up, examining and using objects etc. Kinect 2 could also be used during motorbike riding gameplay and for the various minigames that you always get in Shenmue games.

    • m1nh0ca

      I don’t think Microsoft cares so much about exclusives in a long term…
      We can name really a few quality games that are 100% exclusives.

    • CISphil

      ahahahahahaha HAHAHAAAA!!!

  • Senses Failed

    Ladies and gents, for those who weren’t sure if COD had jumped the shark yet. I give you.. Michael Myers!?

    You literally couldn’t make it up

    • Ross Kemp

      It smacks of desperation to me . Maybe all the Lemmings that play this copy and paste of a game year in and year out are FINALLY getting bored of increasing poorer iterations . I kinda think BF will down COD eventually very soon , lest we not forget about Titanfall ( 6v6 plus titans plus AI = very busy matches – it works , OK ) . Farewell COD , you served the simpletons well .

      • AC130

        Doubt it BF4 flopped like a fish out of water. One can only hope Titanfall is something new and not a whole bunch of CoD with mechs.

        • Bush

          i dont know about flop. as much as i hate what dice have done to the game itself (it feels like a new CoD) it has the same player base as bf3 if not more with the next gen included. on average 50,000 players on each platform EU peak time.(as a bf fan i cannot stand the newest one).

    • evilfangs .

      They used the game mode that players made up on MW2 and just put a real skin to him.

      • CISphil

        Actually it’s been around since CoD 4.

        • Flawless

          actually its been around since at least the RB6 3 days.

    • Does Not Equal

      As opposed to figuratively making something up?

  • Ross Kemp

    Excuse me Major , PS4 plus subscribers are getting the brilliant PC port of Outlast free in February – anything in the pipeline free for XBONE ? – ” NO ” , Okay , I thought as much .

  • m1nh0ca

    *Yaaawn* CoD…

  • Nexures

    The only dlc they ever release for this dead game are map packs. and theyre 1/4 of the price of the game. EA policy strikes again ^^

    • http://twitter.com/lightsup55 Timothy Leucht

      Where are getting EA from?

      The only companies involved are Infinity Ward, Raven Software (multiplayer), Neversoft (Extinction), Treyarch (Wii U version) and Activision*

      * In Japan, the game is published by Square Enix.

      • Nexures

        because theyre being just as greedy, and money devouring like EA

    • WARLORD

      you thought CoD DLC was expensive go on steam and look up “Railworks 3: Train Simulator 2012 Deluxe” in the store. then click on “see all DLC” and scroll down to the total. the total price for DLC is $1524.17…….

      • Ross

        Not really the same though is it? :P The Railworks guys need to make the prices high to compensate for the lower sales; companies like EA/Activision just make the prices high because they’ll get thousands and thousands of sales regardless of what they price it at lol.

      • Nexures

        hahahaha what the heck :D ? but still, what @disqus_CNjcZTuIRX:disqus said. i dont think there are any worse companies than activision,ea and maybe ubisoft so far

        • WARLORD

          Microsoft seem to be up there with them now Forza 5 Season Pass is 49.99..

          • Nexures

            dont blame microsoft for it. Obviously they didnt set the price for the game they didnt make dude :P

          • WARLORD

            Microsoft is the publisher dude… developed by Turn 10 Studios and published by Microsoft Studios.. The publisher set the price dude

  • Nexures

  • ryder4life22187

    Don’t wanna pay $15 just to play episode 1 of nightfall. Not sure how much they know about Michael Myers but he sure don’t have luv for the axe.

  • fwdkiller

    I will not buy anymore games or dlc until u guys fix the problems , back to ps4 atleast i can play wit my friends with ease and not jump through loops just to play..

  • Danny Hogan

    Yawwwwn move over cod titan fall is coming! Were bored of cod dlc that adds nothing new just maps all the time zzzz

  • fwdkiller

    I never bought any dlc for an call of duty game.

  • Stuart Triibal Cullinane

    boring (yawnnnnnnnnnnnn)

  • Lucky13X

    Nice interactions. That is pretty impressive.

  • roozbeh, again

    Any Xbox updates of sorts? It’s kinda getting boring around here with all the COD and SUAV posts.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    ok great with the michael myers. BUT i would rather see m&m in a game with 3 other notorious movie teen killers in an open world game together or apart but just a full game. instead of remaking all of the great horror classics into crappy remakes they could just make games and keep the magic alive.

  • MobileVortex

    We want info on the Warframe release.

  • Flawless

    this guy dont even post the coming soon list anymore seems the 360 is being abandoned slowly but surely,there hasnt even been an arcade game released in a month lol.

  • Lucky13X

    @majornelson. Your readship seems to be going down. Why aren’t you posting the Xbox 360 deals any more?

  • deadbox102

    Why the heck can’t my buddy see that I’m online? This is pathetic.

  • Dave Sprouse

    Looking forward to these maps.. Should hold me over until Titanfall gets here!

  • SPONGEGUMS

    Michael Myers in a COD game? HUH? These guys have lost the plot.
