On April 3, 2014 Xbox players will be able to get their hands on the new DLC pack for Call Of Duty Ghosts. Devastation is the second map pack for the game and introduces four new small and medium-sized maps, a new hybrid weapon, and the second episode of its Extinction saga. The new maps will be a Mayan temple, a mangled container ship, a giant excavation digger in South America, and a reimagined version of Dome from Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3. Devastation also brings in a new weapon called the Ripper, a 2-in-1 weapon that switches between a sub-machine gun and an assault rifle. The second episode of Extinction is titled Mayday, and will close with a battle against a 100-foot tall Cryptid alien boss named the Kraken.
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.
“Behemoth” takes the battle aboard a massive excavation platform in South America. Long sight lines open this map up to longer-range weapons, while the compact interiors of the control rooms are ideal for SMG’s and Shotguns. Completing “Behemoth’s” Field Order will allow players to control an attack helicopter armed with a deadly, armor-piercing Rail Gun as it circles the excavator searching for enemy combatants.
Devastation’s fourth map, “Unearthed,” drops players into a reimagined version of “Dome,” the fan-favorite multiplayer map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. With a new look and all-new secrets, “Unearthed” is a compact map for all player types, who must navigate an alien artifact dig site in order to unlock the map’s Field Order and unleash the power of the Cryptids, as well as locate the map’s secret alien weapon.
Devastation will costs $14.99 unless you already have the season pack. PC and PlayStation consoles do not have a release date for Devastation.
