Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation Lands on Xbox April 3

Devastation, the second DLC Pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts,  debuts April 3, first on Xbox. This pack features four unique multiplayer maps, an all-new tactical 2-in-1 weapon, and Episode 2: Mayday – the next installment in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative.

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

  • RUINS: A mountaintop Mayan ruin overrun by the jungle, Ruins’ skyline is dominated by an ominous volcano on the brink of eruption. The central temple provides a key overwatch position, and adds verticality to the subterranean sections beneath the temple’s foundations. These underground sections, cliffside trails and stairwells create a myriad of pathways and flanking routes so players will never be far from the frantic action.
  • BEHEMOTH: Situated on a massive bucket-wheel excavator (BWE), one of the largest vehicles ever created, Behemoth is a narrow, multi-level map. Long sight lines open Behemoth up to longer-range weapons, while BWE’s core walkways offer tight interior control rooms, ideal for those who prefer close-quarters combat. The map’s multiple levels gives players flanking opportunities so there will rarely be an opportunity to focus solely on your cross-hairs.
  • COLLISION: Having collided with a New York bridge, the resulting wreckage of this cargo ship provides the setting for Collision. With the mangled remains of the bridge, burnt out vehicles, and shipping containers strewn across the deck, this map provides the ideal theatre for tight, close-quarters combat.
  • UNEARTHED: Inspired by Dome, the fan-favorite map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Unearthed drops players at the heart of an alien dig site. Unearthed lies amidst the shadows of mysterious ancient statues, and at its heart is an ancient meteorite – the focus of the excavation.

Moving on to Devastation’s new weapon, The Ripper: This unique weapon provides players with two different configurations: medium to short-range capability as a Sub Machine-Gun (SMG), and medium to long-range as an Assault Rifle (AR), giving maximum flexibility to adjust to a variety of map types and tactics.

And finally, the Extinction experience continues with Episode 2: Mayday. In the aftermath of Episode 1: Nightfall, the Quick Reaction Force team is sent in to investigate a high-tech ghost ship adrift in the South Pacific. In Episode 2: Mayday your team will need new weapons and new tactics to deal with the insidious wall-crawling “Seeder,” and the skyscraper-sized monstrosity known as the “Kraken.” To survive, players must explore the ship’s cavernous environment, scavenge supplies and construct improvised weapons and traps from blueprints found onboard.

    titanfall will be out no more COD for me, bye bye COD

    • bbhbjhbj

      I’m gonna laugh when titanfall sucks

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja

        I guess you haven’t played the “beeta”

        • bbhbjhbj

          Nope and I don’t plan on playing the full game either

  • deadbox102

    Won’t be landing on my console. I’m burned out on the CoD series.

  • kvfive

    When will they add the onslaught dlc to the regular map rotation ? Gets pretty boring playing the same 4 maps in a limited playlist :(

    • chrisbaker3

      Probably when Devastation hits. At least that’s my recollection from BOII last year.

      • kvfive

        I thought the map packs for BOII were in rotation after 4 weeks no ?

        • chrisbaker3

          It’s not what I remember, but I could be wrong. Seemed to me that the exclusive playlist changed about the time the next DLC pack hit.

  • Matthew Swiss


  • illuminatigod

    damn, i though this game was from 2008 why is it getting dlcs?

  • Danny Hogan

    COD is boring now gotta agree, it was the same thing over and over and the dlc was always maps zzzzzzz

    • Mr&Mrs Ninja

      Yea! I hate the same old dlc over and over again. Maps maps and more maps to get shot in back over and OVER AGAIN! They should have done like Mass Effect 3 and just charge for extra single player or co-op dlc and gave away SOME of MP dlc for free. After Titanfall most people will abandon it anyway…

  • GsG UpAllNight

    I wish you could buy the extinction map separate. It’s about the only thing worth playing in COD.

    • evilfangs .

      I was about to post the exact same thing, that and infected is all me and my mates play.

      • CoMaestro

        Just like everyone hopes they would do it with zombies. It’s because of that people like different things that they can charge more for it. Now you get 5 maps and a weapon for $15, when otherwise they would only make $5 or something per person who only bought the Extinction map. This is way smarter from a business perspective, but most people dislike it.

        • GsG UpAllNight

          And in this case they make $0 because I won’t buy it…

  • Kamikaze Watermelon

    Call of DOODY

  • Will Muscat

    I just can’t get into COD or BF now, it doesn’t feel right not being able to wall run.

  • Rick

    Call Of Duty needs to die, Microsoft should stop pressing us with this
    title, it already gave us what it could, please make some room for
    Titanfall, I think that nothing in the videogame’s world will be the
    same after this… Who’s ready to “make them pay”!?

    • super tomtendo

      except… it sells and breaks records every single year… yea from a business standpoint…definitely should abandon it… idiot

      • Dylan

        It didn’t this year. Ghosts unperformed, as Activision predicted months prior to its release.

        The question is whether it is due to quality or fiercer competition (gta).

        • Nick Peck

          I’d guess a little of both.

  • Gazza!!!

    Free MP weekend for COD this weekend I believe. May give it a go but with Titanfall just around the corner I just can’t see me getting into with no parkour or mechs.

  • CoMaestro

    So.. Ruins = Shangri-La as multiplayer map, Behemoth is just outside of Moon, Collision = Detour with a boat crashed through it and Unearthed = Origins in the shape of Dome? Great work IW!

    PS: Waiting till next year’s CoD, this year Sledghammer will make it and next year ill buy Treyarch’s again.

    • Riddick Snipes


      • CoMaestro

        You go and post that to every other comment in this thread too that is bashing on the entire CoD series..

        I really love the series and enjoy playing it with friends, but these map packs are just idiotic and we all went back to BOII because not even one of my friends liked Ghosts (out of the 20 in my friends list that have played it)

  • Riddick Snipes

    Sweet!!! Extinction here I come!!! And I love cruising around in the multiplayer maps with friends.

    • Fireman17

      Wish you could just buy the extinction ep

      • Riddick Snipes

        Just get the pass for $67 aus. Each extinction map is easily worth $17 aus.

        • Riddick Snipes

          Or do what I did back at launch. I bought the hardened edition, opened it, and redeemed the season pass code then took it back to the store and said ‘”excuse me love, but the install disc isn’t installing the game on my 360 and I can’t get the game running”. The female staff member didn’t even open it to look at it or ask (or know) about the codes. She offered a full refund and i then went and bought a standard copy of ghosts at target for $69. I’m a bit sneaky like that.

          • chex_mix

            Wow, stealing and then “bragging” about it online. You are the man….

          • Synklare

            Whats the issue there? Activision have been stealing from their customers for years with this whole copy and paste rubbish.

            Whilst I don’t condone what Riddick did, bravo sir and well played to you.

  • Ross Kemp

    Make Titanfall a pre load please .

    That is all .

  • Senses Failed

    I was waiting for the map where if you get a field order, you get to call in a giant mech..

    Novemeber i guess

    • Superman64

      I would not be surprised in the least if one of the upcoming CoDs all of the sudden adds in the ability to call in mechs in their game.

  • roozbeh, again

    Anyone else sense the lack of creativity in Infinity Ward? I mean, every thing in this game seems to have been copied from other games. It’s like the moment Zampella and crew left, they have no real imagination on how to do things.

  • Kinectamaniac

    They blew it with Ghosts…really badly made…they’ve stopped trying. Still haven’t fixed spawning. No after release support. Should have been named, Call of Duty Madden Edition. Old game is old.

    • chrisbaker3

      If you believe Activision, the CoD that Sledgehammer Games is working on for this year will be the first “Next Gen” CoD.

    • Superman64

      While Ghosts is definitely not my favorite CoD game, saying there is no after release support is simply not true. They just patched it this past week to rebalance the leveling and alter the way operations work.

      • Kinectamaniac

        That I didn’t know…however, 3-4 months after release?

        Why would it take so long? Lazy IW is lazy.


        I’ve owned almost every CoD made…but I’m done with buying map packs and/or new CoD’s until they get rid of the person that thinks their lazy attitude is okay.

        • Superman64

          I will agree with you there that they waited way too long to fix the leveling issues and making operations work they way they used to in the previous games. Ghosts has some of the most baffling design choices I have ever seen in a CoD game to date.

  • Viby Slim

    they should make a online map creator, for the nxt COD = MW4

    • Cookies!

      Play Halo, it has a great Forge mode.

  • Ross Kemp

    Nobody cares about CODs copy and paste maps anymore .

    Just make Titanfall pre load please .

    • Nick Peck

      Trust me I agree (about the preloading) but it’s not happening right now, so move on man!!

      Even though I don’t play CoD much anymore, these map packs have been pretty decent. But once Tuesday rolls around I’ll probably never touch that game again haha.

      I’m sure I’ll you see you online at some point, would be cool to get a solid team together to steamroll matches. Here’s hoping I’m “sick” on Tuesday!

    • Cookies!

      Just the maps? The entire franchise is copy, paste, make it pretty.

    • maxy

      Then get the heck out of here!

      • Cookies!


        • maxy

          You have freedom of speech of course,but this IS trolling to COD articles!

          • Cookies!

            And your point is… WE CAN SAY WHATEVER WE WANT. Besides, trolling is just so much fun.

          • maxy

            Yes sure, but in some articles people troll and saying things without even playing the games! and no trolling is so immature like you!

  • Ismokedthebanditwithaheadshot

    Yeah! More options for the MS “sales” team…

  • maxy

    OMG! people what the hell? If you don’t like COD or you want to buy Titanfall go for it,but do not post on COD articles! People are so morons nowadays!By the way I can’t wait to get the map pack its so awsome and I would like to thank you Microsoft for putting the game on sale once again! :))

    • Kinectamaniac

      I used to love CoD…until Ghosts. Like someone else posted, it’s just copy and paste now…has been for years. Was hoping Next Gen would bring more than just a few tweaks to the engine…the SAME engine they’ve been using since the original CoD.

      NEW ENGINE PLEASE! I’d love to love CoD, once again.

      • Kinectamaniac

        And…C’MON…FIX THE SPAWNING!!! Half the time I get killed is because I spawn right in front of an enemy…with my back to them.

        It’s cool that they release new map packs, BUT…THEY NEED TO FIX THE BROKEN STUFF AND QUIT ACTING LIKE THE GAME ISN’T FLAWED!

        • SPONGEGUMS

          Here here. If MAXY doesn’t want to read negative comments about Ghosts don’t read the comments under a Ghosts article because the game is so badly made people are venting with negative comments.

          • maxy

            Well I just scrolled to the comments and I seen all that hate,that’s why I made the comment! and if you did not like my comment then don’t reply to me!

          • SPONGEGUMS

            I didn’t reply to you however I will tell you that you are completely out of line. Blogs and forums are PUBLIC. People can respond to you and make whatever comments they like. Stop trying to be the forum police, mmmkayy?

          • SPONGEGUMS

            Saying your name is NOT a reply to you. Replying to you is actually clicking reply under your name.
            There are HUGE reasons to be critical of the game. One, we PAID for the game. A game that they said there would be dedicated servers for and still to my knowledge are not. TWO, the game is still broken. Bad spawns and other things that have not been addressed months after the game’s release. The makers of Ghosts took a lot of us for our money and we are dissatisfied. Just because you like the game and are satisfied does not mean we are. If enough of us are vocal about things like this just MAYBE it will get fixed.

          • maxy

            First of all the game had lots of problems and they got addressed by Infinity Ward and the spawns aren’t a big problem and about the dedicated servers the servers are up,but they having problems for people with a bad connection to the lobbies and it will be addressed soon! and second of all you replied to me by saying if I don’t want to read the negative comments about the game to do not read them! so stop saying that you did not REPLY to ME!

      • maxy

        No it’s not my friend! That’s just your and his opinion!

    • Cookies!

      It’s been rated the worst CoD game and yet you still defend it, Maybe you are the one who needs to get off this blog, anyone who enjoys xbox has the right to comment here, this Is a blog for XBOX FANS, not COD OR PS FANBOYS. Get a life noob. Buyers have the right to information about a product and we are just trying to inform. Besides. CoD main, while not target, audience is 12 year olds who like to cuss and make fun of each others mother. And by reading your coments, that precisely matches your profile

      • maxy

        No it’s not the worst game CoD I would say it’s the best one so far! If you do hate it or didn’t play it how the hell you telling to me its the worst one! This BLOG is not for PS fanboys like you said and its not also for 10 year old trollers like yourself and by the way mate im 23 years old now shut up and leave!

  • Synklare

    Ghosts is a decent game, adds nothing special to the series and it isn’t innovative but what else would you expect from Call of Duty now?

    This map pack actually looks quite boring, the only thing even remotely interesting about it is the new gun but you are absolutely mad if you think I’m going to pay £11 for just a gun and a bunch of maps which won’t even be placed into normal map rotation until the next DLC is released. Probably give this one a miss.

    I think what annoys me the most about it is the ‘were bringing back a fan favorite’. Really? They lack the imagination to create a brand new map that isn’t ‘re-imagined’, I don’t care if it was a fan favorite, why not just bring the original map out for FREE and actually take the time to create a brand new map rather than refurbishing an old one.


      It’s a broken game.

  • King

    The Amount of Call Of Duty related things on this blog saddens me.

  • Axcalibur

    Outstanding! The DLC so far for Ghosts seems like a step up from previous COD games. Definitely makes my decision to not purchase Titanfall even easier.
