Call of Duty: Ghosts Captures Alien Hordes in New Nightfall Trailer

The latest trailer for Call of Duty: Ghosts’ upcoming Onslaught DLC shows off Nightfall, the first of four Extinction episodes.

Posting on his blog, Major Nelson also reminded that the Onslaught DLC is going to arrive first on Xbox Live on January 28. It’s currently unsure as to when the DLC pack will arrive for other platforms. Recalling with previous Call of Duty titles, they usually land two months after the Xbox release.

The official description for Nightfall tells of a “remote facility in the Alaskan wilderness” where scientists had been researching the origins of the “Alien” threat.

However, as it happens in such scenarios, the scientists lose control and a small team of elite soldiers must now retrieve the intel. That will not be easy though for they must go through “hordes of hostile creatures, and survive a three-story tall terror unlike anything they’ve faced before.”

Recently, Infinity Ward tweeted about the additional weapons being featured in the DLC. The Maverick is a highly modular weapon that doubles as both an assault rifle and a sniper rifle.
