Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC arrives January 28

2 min read


Love it or hate it, but it’s hard to argue with the Call of Duty results every year. Hell, even when a game sells poorly compared to previous years, the final profits are still ludicrously high. Thank the digital option of adding more content to the game for that, something that the latest instalment will keep on doing when the Onslaught arrives this month.

Onslaught, the first of four DLC packs that includes Devastation, Invasion and Nemesis arrives later this month on the 28th thanks to habitual leaker Gamestop and a handy cellphone snap revealing a display for the DLC. Thanks NeoGAF.

Expect the usual trailer soon where devs tell you why this mode will rock your socks off. Personally, I’m hoping that they follow this announcement with a new series of replacer adverts that stars Peter Stormare and his icy cool voice.

According to the image, Onslaught will add the following new maps and guns to your copy of Ghosts, with the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of the game getting a timed exclusive release:


Multiplayer Maps:

  • Fog
  • Ignition
  • Containment
  • Bayview

Bonus Weapon:

  • Maverick AR & Sniper Rifle


  • Episode 1: Nightfall

I’ve been playing Call of Duty: Ghosts lately (ON PEE ESS FAWR), and I’ve had some mixed feelings. I honestly just don’t care enough about the single-player campaign to actually even spend an evening to finish it, but the multiplayer is as solid as ever while the Extinction mode is ridiculously addictive.

Too damn addictive I say. Hell, it’s almost as bad as my Resogun addiction, and that’s something. Why, just last night I made it past Hive 8, and powered up until Hive 11 until one of those damn rhinos got me and dammit I’m drifting.

Let’s just say that Extinction has given the Treyarch COD games and their zombie mode a solid run for its money. The season pass will retail for $49.99, so if our dear president can keep his mouth shut, that shouldn’t be more than a few million Rands by the end of this week.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Heh, the one guy actually looks like Geoff!

    I’m enjoying Killzone’s multiplayer so much that I’m barely playing BF4…. I didn’t get COD Ghosts at launch, and probably wont. With Killzone’s DLC being free, and because I’ve got BF4 premium, there is more than enough epic shooterness to keep me going for a long time! 🙂

      I’ve got to be honest here, and admit that I prefer the Killzone MP. Better netcode overall, and the chance to actually get a few kills in some great objective-based maps make it awesome.

        It’s amazing how little latency I feel in this game… I know I’m playing on EU clients most of the time, but it just works perfectly. I have not had a single game where I had to quit due to latency. With BF4 you hit a bad server about 1 in 4 games where there’s no point even trying.

        Very impressed with Killzone overall, very underrated game in my opinion. Can’t wait to see the DLC, should be awesome if the existing maps are anything to go by. 🙂

          What BF4 servers are you trying to play on? In the 2 weeks I’ve had the game I’ve hit 1.

          • Melasco

            EU official servers, mostly Rush and Conquest.

    I cant speak for PS4, but on PC there almost no South Africans playing. I always struggle to get matched up with South Africans. Also the amount of people online in general is almost the same as Black Ops 2…that’s terrible compared to last year. The new CoD usually has about twice as many people online compared to the previous one.

      because it sucks!

  • Umar digs KOS-MOS

    This is what I’ve been waiting for!!

    interesting header 1st thing on a monday….

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    $50 for a season pass? Wow.

  • Jaded_Reprobate

    gotta admit… i’m starting to enjoy ghosts online, almost as much as i enjoyed BLOPS 2
    it’s just not always easy to get local guys on ps4 and with my shitty 2mg line… i tend to lag like a MOFO
    if any1 is keen add me on psn: Jaded_Reprobate

    • Zacob

      It is a pain…nothing worse than lagging!! My ID = ZacobJuma, anyone can feel free to add me too 😛

  • who are those old men in the pic? They look like they are fighting old age tooth and nail with bad hair
