CoD: Ghosts 'Invasion' DLC gets firm PS/PC release date

Xbox exclusivity ends in the first week of July

Activision has confirmed that the third Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC drop, 'Invasion', will be released for PC and PlayStation platforms on July 3.

As expected, the expansion breaks free of its Xbox exclusivity exactly one month - to the day - after its Xbox 360 and Xbox One debut on June 3.


The Invasion DLC introduces four new small-to-medium sized multiplayer maps, including a refreshed version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's Favela, plus a fresh mission for the Extinction co-op mode.

The Xbox 360 add-on weighed in at 1.52 GB, and other platforms should be similar if not the same. It's available as part of the game's season pass, or standalone for £8.06 / $14.99.

Activision plans to release four Call of Duty Ghosts map packs in total. Onslaught launched on Xbox 360 and Xbox One in January, while Devastation released in April.

Videos of each of the new maps in Invasion are through here, and the official blurb on the pack's new content is below:


Pharaoh - An abandoned archeological site of an ancient Egyptian palace. Those most adventurous to explore this multi-level map will be handsomely rewarded with its deepest secrets.

Departed - A rural Mexican town amidst the Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) celebration. Complete a Field Order to unlock the Death Mariachi; armed with dual-wielding pistols that turn downed enemies into your own squadmates.

Mutiny - A pirate hideout in a secretive Caribbean cove. This eerie map includes an hauntingly unique killstreak: an escort of ghostly pirates to send your opponents to Davy Jones' Locker.

Favela - A refreshed version of the fan-favorite Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map. Return to Brazil to fight on the connected rooftops and narrow passageways.


Episode 3: Awakening - Descend into an alien underworld and strike at the mysterious puppet-masters behind the Cryptid invasion. Three new Cryptid species await players, along with some familiar enemies and allies.
