Call of Duty®: Ghosts Invasion DLC Pack
Coming to PlayStation Network and Windows PC on July 3

Call of Duty®: Ghosts players on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC will be able to get their hands on Invasion - the game's third epic DLC Pack - on July 3. Invasion offers players four new multiplayer maps each with a unique field order, plus "Awakening," the third chapter in the game's four-part episodic Extinction storyline.

Invasion's four new multiplayer maps include:

Departed: Set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration, players who complete the map's 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: In 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. Players who unlock this map's Field Order will be handsomely rewarded by Anubis, the half jackal/half human protector of the dead.

Mutiny: A remote Caribbean island harboring an eerie pirate hideout complete with abandoned trading posts and prison cells, where speed and stealth are a must as players navigate the narrow and intertwining pathways. Players that unlock "Mutiny's" Field Order will find themselves escorted by two ethereal ghost pirates who will happily send enemy players down to Davey Jones' locker on their behalf.

Favela: A refreshed version of the fan-favorite map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, this Brazilian shantytown has seen substantial change since its original release. 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, avoiding enemy snipers taking advantage of the map's long sightlines. Players who complete "Favela's" Field Order can call in air support from a nearby Y-8 Gunship.

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 Earth and the future of the human race hang in the balance.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion is available for purchase a la carte for a suggested retail price of $14.99, or as part of the discounted* Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass**. Call of Duty: Ghosts game sold separately and is required to play the Invasion DLC Pack.
