Infinity Ward released a gameplay video for the Call of Duty: Ghosts - Devastation DLC on Sunday to give fans a preview of the new add-on before its release to the Xbox One and Xbox 360 later in the week.
Devastation is set to bring four new small to medium multiplayer maps along with a new Extinction Episode 2: Mayday that puts players on board a research ship that comes under attack from the alien foes including the 100-foot tall "Kraken."
There's also the new "Ripper" 2-in-1 weapon that switches between a SMG and Assault Rifle on the fly. Season Pass owners have had access to the weapon since early March.
Here's the previously released descriptions of the four new multiplayer maps.
Here's the official description of the four multiplayer maps.
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.
