Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion DLC Release Date

Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Ghosts update schedule has revealed the first details for the 3rd Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC, called Call of Duty Ghosts: Invasion. The Map Pack 3 DLC is sure to be given a release date of June 3rd, 2014 on Xbox 360 & Xbox One first as a timed exclusive. It’s exclusive for about one month, after which the DLC add-on will come to PS3, PS4 and Windows PC (but not Wii U) on July 3rd, 2014.

The Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion DLC Pack includes:
Four New Multiplayer Maps: Each small to medium-sized map comes with their own unique Field Order.
Bonus Character: Activision have promised an even better movie character cameo than the Predator of the last map pack! When you complete a Field Order killstreak you’ll be able to play as said mystery character on one of the new maps.
• “Extinction Episode 3“: The gripping third chapter in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative which includes multiple new weapon mods, and promises to close with a battle against a new Cryptids-controlling alien boss.

Call of Duty Ghosts: Invasion Season Pass holders will get the third of four DLC’s as part of the $50 package, which you can still get. Otherwise, you’ll have to buy each DLC separately at a slightly higher price per DLC ($10 more total), since each one individually will set you back 1200 Microsoft Points or $15.

Here is the official trailer for the Call of Duty: Ghosts Season Pass DLC:

Update: Here are the full map names and details now that they’ve been officially announced on the Call of Duty: Ghosts – Invasion DLC #3 page.

“Departed” is a medium-sized map set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration. The colorfully decorated streets, vendor carts and storefronts provide ample cover for run-and-gunners, and players that complete the map’s unique Field Order will unlock the Death Mariachi killstreak. Armed with dual-wielding pistols, the Death Mariachi settles scores, with each kill turning enemy players into another member of the band, and a temporary squad mate.

“Pharaoh” is the abandoned archeological site of an ancient Egyptian palace. Players will have to be on the lookout for collapsing monuments and urns full of flesh-eating scarabs, among other surprises in this multi-level map. Inside the palace, gamers will battle through multiple chambers ideal for close-quarters combat and short-range weapons, all under the watchful eye of Anubis, the half-jackal/half-human, protector of the dead, who will handsomely reward players who unlock this map’s Field Order.

• Invasion’s third map, “Mutiny,” transports players to a remote Caribbean island harboring an eerie pirate hideout complete with abandoned trading posts and prison cells. Speed and stealth are a must as players navigate the narrow and intertwining pathways. However, let ye be warned that gamers taking up positions on the pirate ship moored in the center of the map will become vulnerable to enemy fire from the numerous flanking routes created by the map’s horseshoe shaped dock. Players that unlock “Mutiny’s” Field Order will find themselves escorted by two ethereal ghost pirates, who will happily send enemy combatants down to Davey Jones’ locker on their behalf.

• Invasion’s fourth multiplayer map is a refreshed version of the fan-favorite map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, “Favela.” Since its original release, the Brazilian shantytown has seen substantial change. Buildings once under construction are now complete, while others have crumbled into a state of disrepair. Players must avoid falling to their death as they traverse the map from one building to the next, with ramshackle scaffolding creating varied pathways between structures, and enemy snipers taking advantage of the long sightlines. Players who complete the Field Order in “Favela” will be able to call in heavy air support from a nearby Y-8 Gunship to bring the rain with a 105mm cannon, a 40mm auto-cannon and a 25mm cannon.

• Anchoring the Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion DLC Pack is the next installment in the game’s Extinction mode episodic narrative, “Episode 3: Awakening.” In Awakening, the team descends into the perilous alien underworld to strike at the subterranean fortress of the Ancestors – the mysterious puppet-masters behind the Cryptid invasion. Armed with a range of new hi-tech weapons and equipment, the team must penetrate a series of defensive barriers to reach the Ark and unlock the secrets of the Ancestors’ psychic powers. As the final battle draws closer, the fate of the Earth and the future of the human race hang in the balance.
