Activision announces July 3rd is when the Xbox exclusivity for Call of Duty:
Ghosts - Invasion
, saying that is when the military shooter DLC will come to
Windows and PlayStation 4, bringing four new multiplayer maps and the next
episode in the Extinction zombie story. Here's word on the content in the
Departed: Set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los
Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration, players who complete the map's 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.
Pharaoh: In 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.
Players who unlock this map's Field Order will be handsomely rewarded by Anubis,
the half jackal/half human protector of the dead.
Mutiny: A remote Caribbean island harboring an eerie pirate hideout
complete with abandoned trading posts and prison cells, where speed and stealth
are a must as players navigate the narrow and intertwining pathways. Players
that unlock "Mutiny's" Field Order will find themselves escorted by two ethereal
ghost pirates who will happily send enemy players down to Davey Jones' locker on
Favela: A refreshed version of the fan-favorite map from Call of
Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, this Brazilian shantytown has seen substantial
change since its original release. 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, avoiding enemy snipers taking advantage of the map's long sightlines.
Players who complete "Favela's" Field Order can call in air support from a
nearby Y-8 Gunship.
Anchoring the Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion DLC Pack is the next
installment in the game's Extinction mode episodic narrative, "Episode 3:
Awakening." In Awakening, the team descends into the perilous alien underworld
to strike at the subterranean fortress of the Ancestors, the mysterious
puppet-masters behind 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 Earth and the future of the human race
hang in the balance.
