Activision is offering a Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC Pack Trial this weekend on Xbox Live. Starting Friday 21st March until Monday, 24th March, both gamers on Xbox One and Xbox 360 will be able to try out Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC Pack at no cost.
The free trial includes the four new small-to-medium multiplayer maps – Fog, BayView, Containment and Ignition; the dual-purpose Maverick weapon; and the first instalment in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative – Episode 1: Nightfall.

Come Friday, owners of Call of Duty: Ghosts will just need to sign-in to Xbox Live, download the Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC Pack 1 from the in-game store and jump into a match.
Onslaught is the first downloadable content pack available for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Take the fight onto four small to medium Multiplayer maps: Fog, Bayview, Containment, and Ignition, a reimagining of the classic map Scrapyard from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Players also gain access to the Maverick, an all-new dual purpose Assault Rifle & Sniper Rifle.
The Extinction storyline continues with Episode 1: Nightfall, the first installment in a four-part episodic narrative. Explore a remote facility in the Alaskan wilderness and learn more about the origins of the alien threat. Episode 1: Nightfall features two all-new species of aliens and an exclusive weapon.
Onslaught arrives first on Xbox LIVE on January 28th, with other platforms to follow.

We are hoping to review this map pack in due course from Activision – look out for our opinion on the new content in the coming weeks…
