And yes, it features the same Michael Myers as in the original John Carpenter Halloween series. For my feelings on the original Call of Duty: Ghosts, I wrote a review on one of Bilateral Warp’s sister sites.
“Onslaught” adds four new maps (“Fog”, “Bayview”, “Contingent”, and “Ignition”) and adds a new chapter to the “Extinction” mode, as well as the new weapon “Maverick”, which is best described as a combination of a sniper rifle and an assault rifle.
The real kicker though, is the Easter Egg in the new map “Fog”. In this new map, the player can wind up transforming into Michael Myers, which cues the famous “Halloween” theme and basically runs amok. With extra health and an ax, what else do you need, right?
The “Extinction” mode gets an “Episode One” release, which essentially means we’ll now have an explanation for why the aliens are here and how they have decimated humanity. The new lore for “Extinction” should enrich the experience, especially with new aliens including the gigantic Breeder.
While the Xbox One and Xbox 360 get the new expansion pack today, the PS3/PS4 and PC versions remain TBD. The MSRP is $14.99, but if you pay for the Season Pass of $50 you’ll automatically get it and all of the other new content as it is released.
