Become Michael Myers in the new Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC

First of four downloadable content packs

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.
