January 28 saw the release of Call of Duty Ghosts Onslaught DLC on Xbox One and following the tradition, PS4, PS3 and PC are getting the DLC today after a usual delay.
There are multiple new additions that the DLC will make to Ghosts, for instance new maps, new weapons and a new story.
The four maps that Call of Duty Ghosts Onslaught DLC will bring to Sony’s consoles are Fog, Containment, BayView and Ignition. Here’s a rundown on what each one of them features:
This small to medium-sized map drops you into a dark and eerie campsite set alongside a fog-shrouded lake.
You’ll fight through twisting caves, tall grass, and seemingly abandoned structures each providing different gameplay engagements for all types of players.
Set on a coastal Californian boardwalk, BayView is a small, fast-paced run-and-gun map complete with a quaint trolley bus, providing cover, transport and even a handy moving platform for cleverly placed sentry guns and other Killstreaks.
This smaller sized map is set along a dry riverbed in a war torn Mexican village. A myriad of abandoned bars, cafes, a church and pool hall provide strong close contact combat opportunities, while the elevated rooftop and open riverbed offer vantage points to players who prefer longer range engagements.
Inspired by Scrapyard from MW2, Ignition drops players into an aging space launch facility. With rockets crash-landing into the area of operations, players must be ready for fast run-and-gun combat, leveraging the environment’s debris fields and exposed fuselages for cover.
Nonetheless, this is not all that the DLC brings forth to the game. Just like the Xbox One version, it will introduce two new guns; the Maverick AR and the Maverick A2. This is a dual purpose gun that can be used as an assault rifle as well as a sniper rifle.
First of the four parts, Nightfall takes place in a remote facility in Alaska where a research on aliens has gone wrong. Highlights of the episode are two all new alien species and an exclusive weapon.
On the flipside, the release of Onslaught to Xbox One had ignited new bugs in the game, most prominently frame rate drops among the new maps, juddering on certain areas and further frame rate drops when you try viewing through the sniper rifle’s telescope. Let’s just hope the version developed for PC and Sony’s consoles isn’t as bad.
How many of you have been waiting eagerly for the Call of Duty Ghosts Onslaught DLC for PS4 and PS3? Do you think it will tread better than how it played out on Xbox One?
