COD-GHOSTS_DEVASTATION-620x350

Devastation, the latest DLC Pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts is available now on Xbox Live for both Xbox One and Xbox 360. Adding a host of new content, Devastation features four new, small-to-medium multiplayer maps, the all-new tactical 2-in-1 “Ripper” SMG/Assault Rifle, and “Episode 2: Mayday” – the second instalment in Call of Duty: Ghosts’ episodic Extinction story.

Set in a multi-level Mayan temple, “Ruins” provides the verticality needed for long-range weapons, while the underground pathways below are perfect for close-quarters showdowns. Skilled players that find and complete the map’s unique Field Order will have the ability to become one of Hollywood’s most formidable action film stars and the galaxy’s ultimate hunter, the deadly Predator. As the Predator, players will brandish its dual wrist blades and shoulder-mounted plasma cannon, as well as be able to utilise the creature’s keen hunting abilities to track down enemy players.

“Collision” takes place in the mangled remains of a cargo ship that’s crashed into a New York City bridge. The map’s tight corridors – made-up of burnt-out vehicles and demolished shipping containers – create a space perfect for run-and-gun players. Players that dominate “Collision” and complete the map’s specific Field Order will be able take control of a heavily armed aircraft and rain down destruction from above.

“Behemoth” drops players atop a massive excavation platform in South America. The map’s long sight lines are ideal for long-range weapons, while the confined interiors of the platform’s control rooms make for intense SMG and Shotgun encounters. Completing “Behemoth’s” Field Order will allow players to control an attack helicopter armed with a deadly, armour-piercing mini-gun as it circles the excavator searching for enemy combatants.

“Unearthed” is a reimagined version of the fan-favourite map “Dome” from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3. “Unearthed” is full of new secrets and Cryptid artifacts for players to discover in this compact, versatile map, great for all play types. Unlock the map’s Field Order and unleash the power of the Cryptids, with three “Seeder” aliens chasing down and inflicting heavy damage on enemy combatants.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation also brings fans “Episode 2: Mayday” – the next chapter in the ongoing episodic Extinction story. In the aftermath of the events at the Nightfall Program facility in the Alaskan wilderness, the Quick Reaction Force boards a mysteriously abandoned Chinese research vessel adrift in the South Pacific Ocean. Armed with multiple, mod-able versions of the Venom-X weapons that harness the power of Cryptid technology, players will pursue Captain Archer in an attempt to uncover what’s become of Dr. Cross, all while battling against a new Cryptid enemy called the “Seeder”, and culminating with players facing-off against a massive, 400-foot tall Cryptid beast from the deep – the “Kraken.”

Devastation also arms players with the tactical 2-in-1 “Ripper,” a new hybrid SMG/Assault Rifle, and a formidable addition to Ghosts’ weapons cache. The “Ripper” is the perfect complement to Devastation’s new multiplayer maps, providing players two different configurations – medium to short-range capability as an SMG, and medium to long-range as an Assault Rifle. The “Ripper” is a one-of-a-kind weapon in Call of Duty, having the unique ability to convert from SMG to Assault Rifle and back again on-the-fly in the midst of battle, giving players unprecedented flexibility to adjust to a variety of map types and tactics.
