If you play the latest Call of Duty title on anything other than an Xbox 360 or Xbox One, you’ve not been able to play the Onslaught DLC pack, until now.
Well, sort of… as Activision have announced the pack is coming to PC and PlayStation 3 (and 4, obviously) on Thursday, February 27th. It’s available as part of the season pass, or individually.
Onslaught arms players with the Maverick, a deadly new, dual-purpose addition to their multiplayer arsenal. Outfitted with a lightweight wood stock and a digital screen display, players can choose to use the Maverick as either an Assault Rifle or Sniper Rifle, depending on their tactical needs.
Anchoring Onslaught is “Episode 1: Nightfall,” the first installment in Extinction’s new, four-part episodic narrative. As the initial foray into this single, connected story that will be told across each DLC Pack launch throughout the year, “Episode 1: Nightfall” takes fans to a remote research facility hidden deep within the Alaskan wilderness, where a small recon team must infiltrate the facility to find out what happened to the mysterious Nightfall Program. This expanded Extinction storyline introduces new characters, plus two all-new alien species, and debuts an exclusive Venom-X weapon that pulverises the Cryptids, as players delve deeper into the story of what happened following mankind’s first contact with the Cryptids in Colorado.
Fans can purchase Onslaught as either a standalone DLC Pack for a suggested retail price of £11.59, or purchase the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass. Season Pass holders not only get all four epic DLC Packs** for the discounted suggested retail price of £34.99*, but they also get instant access to the downloadable multiplayer map, “Free Fall,” as well as the Team Leader Digital Pack, which comes with a unique multiplayer character head, weapon camo, reticle, player patch, player card and player background.
