As revealed in a press release published on Tuesday, June 3, bigwig publisher Activision has announced Call of Duty: Ghosts’ third multiplayer map pack for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, entitled “Invasion”.
The map pack offers you four new maps to play around with. The pack also comes with the third chapter to the four-part episodic Extinction storyline, titled “Awakening”, more unique Field Orders, including the Death Mariachi, the Blessing of Anubis--the half jackal/half human Protector of the Dead and Ghost Pirates.
In Exitinction’s third chapter, Awakening, the team descend into an alien underwork to assault the underground fortress of the Ancestors, the puppet-masters behind the Cryptid alien invasion of Earth.
Armed with new hi-tech weapons and equipment, the team must breach a series of defensive barriers in order to reach the Ark--finding the Ark is said to unlock the secrets of the Ancestor’s psychic powers, an outcome that could tip the balance of the fate of the world in the team’s favor.
Below you’ll find detailed rundowns of each new map the Invasion pack will offer you, courtesy of the press release. The DLC is now exclusively available for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Departed: Set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration, where players who complete the map’s unique 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: 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 with the Blessing of 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 their behalf.
Favela: A refreshed version of the fan-favourite 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 will be able to call in air support from a nearby Y-8 Gunship.
