by

[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, Activision formally confirmed the Invasion expansion for Call of Duty: Ghosts. It includes four multiplayer maps (Pharaoh, Departed, Mutiny, and Favela, a remake of Modern Warfare 2's map) and Episode 3: Awakening for the game's Extinction mode. The DLC launches June 3 first on Xbox Live, with a release for other platforms to follow. It is included with the $50 Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC pass.

The original story is below.

The next Call of Duty: Ghosts expansion will reportedly feature new maps that take players to places like a celebration for Dia de los Muertos, an ominous port with a wooden ship, and to ancient Egypt. Charlie Intel dug up details on the game's next expansion, titled Invasion, based on information that appears to have gone live ahead of time.

Three images posted on international Call of Duty websites reveal three new multiplayer maps. Departed is the Dia de los Muertos map, while Mutiny is the pirate-themed map, and Pharaoh is the map reportedly set in Egypt. None of this is confirmed, so you should take this information with a grain of salt until we hear directly from Activision or Infinity Ward.

There are four expansions included with the $50 Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC pass. Onslaught and Devastation are already available, while Invasion and Nemesis are still to come. The DLC pass content transfers between console generations of the same family (i.e. PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4, but not Xbox 360 to PlayStation 4) so long as you purchase it by May 31.

The next Call of Duty game is November's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. Sledgehammer Games is handling the Xbox One, PS4, and PC versions, while a studio to be named later is making the Xbox 360 and PS3 iterations. There has been no mention of Wii U.

"Infinity Ward, we dub thee the most chaffy game developer of the century ..." Sledgehammer Games, make us proud.

COD - Ghost is a horrible game.  It's not even worth the price of $9.99.  And, to think they sold it for $59.99!  Nice way to treat the die-hard loyal customers.  They named it right...Ghost, as in empty, as in non-existent.

I'm still playing Black ops 1 with all of it's DLC. Black ops 2 sucked, so i didnt get the DLC for that one, and I assumed Ghost would be just as bad as MW3, so i didn't even chance it. Are people actually enjoying Ghost? maybe I'll get it. Does it have gore like COD W@W?

Instead of them pushing out the DLC. They need to fix the spawning problem. I watched this guy on Twitch this week playing Domination. he had 83 YES 83 KILLS  and only 5 deaths. His team had the objectives covered and the other team was forced to spawn in 1 place and he popped them as they spawned. It was so bad he could time it perfectly shooting literally as they spawned giving them not even 1/10 of a second to react. It was just ridiculous.

@Dredcrumb9 See my comment about Domination at the very bottom. Short answer- Domination is completely unplayable due to spawn camping.

@Dredcrumb9 Black ops 2 was great, and zombie mode was my favorite game for like 2 straight years and 1000 hours later....I am praying daily they will release black ops 3 with zombies sometime soon, hell I'd spend 59.99 on a treyarch zombies standalone

@Dredcrumb9 Ghosts is a step up from Black Ops 2 but still not as good as Black Ops 1. My biggest problem with Ghosts is the spawns and the community. Everyone either goes on Youtube or Twitch and finds the most d-bag camping spots and just sits there with a thermal or tracker sight on their weapon. My opinion on the COD's is COD4 > Black Ops 1 > Ghosts > MW3 > Black Ops 2 > MW2

@Dredcrumb9 Ghosts is probably the worst COD yet.  Huge maps, super fast kill times, more camping than ever before.  Online population is lower than BO2 right now.  I didn't notice much in the way of gore, but I don't know about that.

@spartanx169x They'll fix it whenever they decide to re-release the map as DLC in subsequent titles. Play Team Fortress 2 instead.

@JayQproductions @Dredcrumb9 You are crazy


Ghosts sucks 10000000 times more than block ops 2
