Arriving just in time to bid a fond farewell to February, the Onslaught pack is ready for action on the PS3/4 and PC by the end of the month.
The Xbox 360/One version of Onslaught has been out for a little while now, but PlayStation and PC gamers have been left out of all the alien-shooting, Michael Meyers evading glory till now. Finally though, the official announcement has been made and Onslaught has been stamped and dated for a February 27th launch.
Just in case you haven’t been paying attention, or been suitably CoD-napped Onslaught includes a new weapon in the form of the Maverick (which is an assault rifle/sniper combo), the first official installment of the new story-based ‘Extinction’ multiplayer campaign with “Episode 1: Nightfall”, and four new maps. One of which has a nasty little horror-themed surprise.
- Fog: A chilling homage to classic horror films, set alongside the banks of a murky lake, players skilled enough to pick up the map’s unique Field Order can become the embodiment of evil and don the mask of Michael Myers, one of cinema’s most iconic horror characters, as the entire soundscape changes to the eerily familiar Halloween Theme music.
- BayView: A coastal Californian boardwalk that offers players fast-paced run-and-gun gameplay amid a seaside town. Clever players will be able to climb onto the map’s moving trolley to engage enemies, as well as call in devastating artillery strikes from the Naval Destroyer anchored offshore.
- Containment: This map drops players into a raging battle amidst a war-torn Mexican village, where the action centers on the crippled remains of a small bridge holding a hi-jacked truck leaking radioactive material.
- Ignition: Onslaught’s fourth map is a completely reimagined version of “Scrapyard” – the fan-favorite multiplayer map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, placing players into a deserted space launch facility with frenetic action amongst abandoned warehouses, flame trenches, a massive transport crawler, and dynamic map elements that can take players out if they’re not paying close attention.
That’s a good deal of bang for your buck for one of the biggest shooters of 2013 and it’ll be available for purchase (or download if you have the Season Pass) on the PS3, the PS4 and the PC on the 27th of this month.
