The second DLC pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts launches April 3rd first on Xbox and we've got some details. The content pack is named Devastation and include 4 new multiplayer maps, a new hybrid weapon, and episode 2 of 'Extinction', the co-op mode and our favorite part of the game.
'Extinction Episode 2: Mayday' has the Quick Reaction Force team tasked with investigating an advanced ghost ship in the wake of 'Episode 1: Nightfall'. Located in the South Pacific, players will encounter enemies such as "Seeders" which can climb on walls and shoot gassed projectiles, and the "Kraken" which is bsically just that - a giant, building sized enemy from the sea. Activision promises more 'Extinction' content to come down the road.
The four new multiplayer maps included are Ruins, Behemoth, Collision, and Unearthed.Ruins is in a South American Mayan ruin, right near an active volcano. It's possible for a player to activate the volcano so that it begins to erupt and take out enemies. Behemoth has players on a giant earth excavator that is elevated off the ground. The map is long and narrow, and encouraged the use of long range weapons. Collision is part container ship, part bridge, and all crash scene. With containers everywhere, site is obstructed and the map is friendly for close quarters action. Unearthed is a reimagined version of Dome from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. In this version it's possible to call in aliens from the 'Extinction' mode who will attack enemies, and you can also get your hands on some alien weaponry to gain ad advantage against the other team.
A new weapon called The Ripper enables players to switch between an assault rifle and SMG on the fly, and season pass holders on Xbox have immediate access to the device.
Devastation launches on April 3 for Xbox One and Xbox 360, will come out later on other platforms.
