GameStop leaked the first look, and now Activision has given us an extensive overview of what to expect from the upcoming Onslaught downloadable content for Call of Duty: Ghosts.
Onslaught includes four new small to medium sized maps (Fog, Bayview, Containment, Ignition), plus the first installment of the Extinction add-on content, Episode 1: Nightfall, will be included here. Expect new characters, a new weapon, plus new aliens that include a three-story tall alien enemy. Lastly, there's the new dual-purpose Maverick assault rifle/sniper rifle gun being added to multiplayer.
So the multiplayer maps aren't just straight up new maps, as each offers something unique. In Fog, if you get a field order you will transform into Michael Myers. You know, from the Halloween movies. You even get his mask and a big bloody axe to swing around. A nice nod to old school Modern Warfare right there.
Onslaught will be out first for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 on January 28.
