The Epic Season of Downloadable Content for Call of Duty: Ghosts Comes to a Rousing Culmination with Nemesis
SANTA MONICA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Call of Duty®: Ghosts caps off an extraordinary season of
content with the release of the fourth and final DLC pack, Call of
Duty®: Ghosts Nemesis, coming first, exclusively to Xbox
platforms on August 5. Throughout this year's DLC season, Call of
Duty: Ghosts has introduced several franchise firsts, including
new killstreaks featuring the galaxy's ultimate hunter, the deadly
Predator, and one of cinema's most iconic horror characters, Michael
Myers, new weapons like the dual purpose "Maverick" Assault Rifle/Sniper
Rifle and the tactical 2-in-1 Ripper SMG/Assault Rifle, as well as an
all new episodic saga for Extinction.
"First off I want to thank every one of our fans. The dedication of our
players is overwhelming. The whole team at Infinity Ward is really
excited about the release of the Nemesis and we think it's
a great way to close out what's been a really fun DLC season," said Mark
Rubin, Executive Producer at Infinity Ward. "DLC is a great way to
unleash creative new content that is often the direct result of
community feedback and interaction. So thank you again to the millions
of people who play Call of Duty: Ghosts every day and keep
the feedback coming!"
The DLC season closes out strongly with Call of Duty®: Ghosts
Nemesis, which introduces four new multiplayer maps from
the most varied locales, each with unique Field Orders specific to the
map, and includes the exhilarating conclusion of Extinction's four-part
narrative with "Episode 4: Exodus," where players fight for mankind's
survival as the Cryptid invasion reaches its deadly climax.
The four new small-to-medium multiplayer maps in Nemesis are
designed specifically for Call of Duty's distinctive
fast-paced, gun-on-gun gameplay.
"Goldrush" is set in an abandoned gold mine in the Southwest United
States, where an intricate network of cavernous tunnels and perilous
shafts create the ideal setting for medium to long range combat; while
two mine carts race along the abandoned tracks offering players a fast
way to traverse the map. Players who complete the unique field order
on Goldrush will unleash a howling pack of wolves that will descend
upon their enemies.
"Subzero" drops players into a frigid Canadian submarine base that has
been hastily evacuated, with control room, submarine pen and research
facilities all left eerily empty. Built around the traditional
three-lane design, this medium-sized map harbors a mysterious terror
that will decimate your enemies upon completion of the map's unique
In "Dynasty," players are transported to a lakeside Chinese village
surrounded by picturesque mountains, vivid gardens, and spectacular
architecture - a serene environment that is anything but Zen-like.
Multiple pathways crisscross the village in this medium map with a
variety of elevation and numerous back alleys that create flanking
routes. The unique field order on "Dynasty" allows players to call in
an air strike of vertical takeoff fighter jets, while one lingers
behind to give you unmatched air superiority.
Nemesis cranks the frenetic multiplayer action to
unprecedented levels with the fourth multiplayer map, "Showtime," a
sadistic reimagining of the smallest map in Call of Duty®
history, the fan favorite map from <>Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare®
"Shipment." In the futuristic arena of "Showtime," blind corners and
narrow pathways provide momentary reprieve from the outright mayhem
within the central square comprised of several shipping containers.
Tight confines call for shotguns and SMGs. Survive long enough to be
rewarded with one of three killstreaks: lethal automated gun turrets
at key locations on the map, an air drop with multiple care packages
or a deadly gas attack that forces the action back into the center of
Closing out the final DLC Pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts is
the dramatic conclusion in the Extinction narrative, "Episode 4:
Exodus." Following the CIF Unit's harrowing escape from the alien
underworld and the successful recovery of Dr. Cross and the cortex, the
team has flown in to fight 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 launching the shuttle 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 enemies with a range of lethal powers,
including mind control and psionic attacks - the Ancestors. As the
battle for our survival draws to a close, the fate of mankind is in your
