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.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation, available April 3rd, first on Xbox.
