Activision And Infinity Ward Set To Release The Kraken With Devastation – The Second Epic DLC Pack For Call Of Duty: Ghosts, Launching First, Exclusively On Xbox Live April 3rd

Stocks in this article: ATVI

Gamers clamoring for all-new Call of Duty®: Ghosts content can set their calendars for Devastation , the second of four massive DLC Packs, set to launch on April 3 rd. Available first, exclusively on Xbox Live for both Xbox One and Xbox 360, Devastation delivers a new assortment of content to Call of Duty®’s definitive online multiplayer experience. The DLC Pack features four new small to medium-sized multiplayer maps, including a mountaintop Mayan temple, a mangled container ship, a giant excavation digger in South America, and a fully reimagined version of Infinity Ward’s fan-favorite map “Dome” from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3 – each with their own unique Field Order. There’s also the all-new “Ripper” tactical 2-in-1 weapon, and “Episode 2: Mayday” – the gripping second chapter in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative which includes multiple mod-able versions of the Venom-X weapon, and closes with a battle against a monstrous, 100-foot tall Cryptid alien boss, aptly named the Kraken.

Additionally, as a special offer available starting today for players on Xbox Live, Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass owners get instant access to Devastation ’s all-new “Ripper” weapon, which features the unique ability to quickly convert from Sub Machine-Gun (SMG) to Assault Rifle and back again in the midst of battle, and can be used in all Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer maps.

Devastation is available a la carte for a suggested retail price of $14.99, or as part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass, which gives fans access to four epic Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Packs** planned to release throughout 2014 at the discounted* suggested retail price of $49.99. Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass holders also get instant access to the Team Leader Digital Pack, which comes with a unique multiplayer character head, weapon camo, reticle, patch, player card and background.

And for the first time in Call of Duty history, a free Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer demo will be available for gamers to experience over the weekend, starting tomorrow, Friday, March 7, 2014 and running through Monday, March 10, 2014. Gamers will be able to jump on Xbox Live and try out Ghosts multiplayer, including three multiplayer maps – Strikezone, Warhawk, and Prison Break; three multiplayer modes – Team Deathmatch, Domination and Search & Rescue; and the original Extinction game mode – Point of Contact, all at no cost. Simply sign-in, download the Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer demo, and get right into a match against friends, family and anyone else enjoying the free demo this weekend.

“The Devastation DLC Pack continues the fast-paced, fun and imaginative gameplay that Infinity Ward and Neversoft began with Onslaught,” said Daniel Suarez, Vice President of Production, Activision Publishing, Inc. “ Ghosts ’ DLC is much more than just new multiplayer maps. The teams have added new weapons; the next intense continuation in Extinction’s four-part, episodic narrative; and another epic, action film character soon to be revealed. Devastation , like Onslaught before it, is a ton of fun, and we can’t wait for the community to experience it all.”

Devastation delivers four distinctive new maps with the fast-paced gameplay Call of Duty fans love, each with their own surprises. The first map, “Ruins,” is located on a Mexican peninsula and set amidst the remnants of a mountaintop Mayan temple, with multiple levels providing verticality for longer-range weapons, and underground pathways perfect for close-quarters encounters. Savvy players that find and complete the unique Field Order will be able to trigger the map’s volcano to erupt, and enjoy watching enemy players attempt to take cover as fiery debris fall from the sky.

The map “Collision,” is a mangle of debris scattered atop a container ship pinned underneath a crippled bridge in New York. This small map is ideal for run-and-gun tactics. 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.
