Final Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC now live on Xbox 360, Xbox One

S. Prell, @SamPrell

"Nemesis," the fourth and final DLC pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts, has come to Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles, bringing with it four new maps, four unique Field Orders and the final installment of Ghosts' episodic Extinction storyline, Episode 4: Exodus. If we were Jim Carrey trying to do a horror movie, we might think the number four was haunting us.

The maps included for Ghosts players ready to send their enemies into the afterlife are: "Goldrush," an abandoned gold mine in the southwest United States; "Subzero," a military base nestled in the frozen wilderness of Canda that harbors a "mysterious terror," according to a press release; "Dynasty," a Chinese lakeshore village surrounded by mountains, gardens and awe-inspiring architecture; and "Showtime," a reimagined version of a map from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare called "Shipment."

Meanwhile, those who'd prefer to shoot alien faces instead of humans will find a new enemy in Extinction mode's conclusion. The Ancestors, as they're called, are the most powerful extraterrestrial foes yet seen in Ghosts, with mind control powers and psionic attacks.

Nemesis is now available for Xbox systems for $14.99 a la carte. Alternatively, you can purchase the $49.99 Season Pass to grab it and the three other DLC packs released thus far, saving you $10 from the amount it would cost to download each individually. Nemesis will be available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 next month.

Nemesis - the Final DLC Pack in the Call of Duty: Ghosts Season of Downloadable Content - Is Available Now on Xbox Live

The Call of Duty®: Ghosts DLC season closes out with Nemesis, which introduces four new multiplayer maps, each featuring a unique Field Order, and includes the fourth and final entry, and epic conclusion to Extinction's episodic narrative with "Episode 4: Exodus."

The four new, small-to-medium size multiplayer maps in Nemesis are designed specifically for Call of Duty's distinctive, fast-paced, gun-on-gun gameplay.

"Goldrush" - Set in the Southwest United States, this abandoned gold mine's network of tunnels and perilous shafts create the ideal setting for medium to long range combat.
"Subzero" - A hastily evacuated submarine base in the frigid Canadian outpost - with control room, submarine pen and research facilities - harbors a mysterious terror that will decimate opponents in this medium-sized map.
"Dynasty" - Multiple pathways crisscross this lakeside Chinese village surrounded by picturesque mountains, vivid gardens, and spectacular architecture - a serene environment that is anything but Zen-like.
"Showtime" - A sadistic reimagining of "Shipment" - the smallest map in Call of Duty history and fan-favorite map from Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare®.

Closing out Call of Duty: Ghosts final DLC Pack is the dramatic conclusion to the game's episodic Extinction narrative. "Episode 4: Exodus" follows the CIF Unit's harrowing escape from the alien underworld and the successful recovery of Dr. Cross and the cortex, with the team now tasked with fighting off the Cryptid army's siege of the last bastion of human resistance. Your mission is to get key personnel to safety by restoring power to the shuttle and then launching it to a low Earth orbit space station. "Episode 4: Exodus" gives players unprecedented control of their escape route - choose your path, gather new intel, craft new weapons - and introduces the deadliest of Cryptid enemies with a range of lethal powers, including mind control and psionic attacks - the Ancestors.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Nemesis is available now, first, exclusively on Xbox Live for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, with other platforms to follow.
