‘Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught’ DLC PS4, PS3, PC Release Date on Feb 27

February 25, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

“Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught” DLC will hit Playstation 4, Playstation 3, and PC on February 28.

The DLC was previously released for Xbox in late January. 

Onslaught includes four new maps and two new weapons, and includes the first episode in Extinction, a four-part episodic story.

Onslaught costs $15 as a stand-alone or is included with the game’s season pass.

Episode 1, Nightfall, takes players 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 pulverizes the Cryptids, as players delve deeper into the story of what happened following mankind’s first contact with the Cryptids in Colorado.

The new maps are described in the official press release below:

Fog: A chilling homage to classic horror films, set alongside the banks of a murky lake, players skilled enough to pick up the map’s unique Field Order can become the embodiment of evil and don the mask of Michael Myers, one of cinema’s most iconic horror characters, as the entire soundscape changes to the eerily familiar Halloween Theme music.

BayView: A coastal Californian boardwalk that offers players fast-paced run-and-gun gameplay amid a seaside town. Clever players will be able to climb onto the map’s moving trolley to engage enemies, as well as call in devastating artillery strikes from the Naval Destroyer anchored offshore.

Containment: This map drops players into a raging battle amidst a war-torn Mexican village, where the action centers on the crippled remains of a small bridge holding a hi-jacked truck leaking radioactive material.

Ignition: Onslaught’s fourth map is a completely reimagined version of “Scrapyard” – the fan-favorite multiplayer map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, placing players into a deserted space launch facility with frenetic action amongst abandoned warehouses, flame trenches, a massive transport crawler, and dynamic map elements that can take players out if they’re not paying close attention.

The new Maverick gun is outfitted with a lightweight wood stock and a digital screen display, and can be used as an assault rifle or sniper rifle.
