Gold_Weapons_03_2.jpg

Make room in your gold weapons collection, because the Gold Knife and Gold PDW are now available to use in your loadouts! But this is no ordinary cosmetic upgrade; both weapons gain unique combat bonuses when used in their Gold form.

 

The Gold Knife has a different animation than it's non-gold knife counterpart. You swipe at the enemy, which makes for a faster recovery. To unlock the Gold Knife, you need to be at least Prestige 5 or higher.

 

The Gold PDW features fully automatic fire. To unlock the Gold PDW, you need to be Prestige 10.

For those at a high enough Prestige, make sure to try these weapons out in your loadouts to add a little style and skill to your Multiplayer game!

CODGhosts_Extinction_Awakening.jpg

 

 

Gear up, soldiers, we’re taking the fight straight to them. Invasion, the third downloadable content pack for Call of Duty®: Ghosts, is now available for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Invasion introduces Awakening, the third episode in the epic Extinction saga.

 

Extinction Double XP

 

To celebrate the release of Episode 3: Awakening, we’re activating Extinction Double XP for all platforms starting Friday, June 6th through Monday, June 9th. Rank up while exploring the depths of the Cryptid underworld and start working through those new prestige levels.

 

New Threats Abound

 

The Cryptids won’t take lightly to the CIF team’s offense. You’d better be ready to fight and adapt, because Awakening brings more threats than ever before. Some new challenges to look forward to include:

 

 

Divebombers: Fragile yet extremely dangerous, these flying aliens charge straight at you and detonate in a massive, high-damage explosion. Keep your eyes to the sky and take these bombers out ASAP.

 

 

Gargoyle: A more robust aerial threat, Gargoyles possess high health and deal heavy-hitting attacks with their deadly tails. They attack from the air or while on the ground. Call out their position to avoid getting trapped in close quarters.

 

 

Mammoth: Heavily armored, the Mammoth is a ground-based behemoth that burrows underground and emerges near players, pounding the ground for area damage. To make matters worse, they occasionally call for aid by summoning deadly Hunters. And you thought Rhinos were bad. Tanks to the front during skirmishes with these hulking terrors.

 

 

Hostile Plant Life: Even their environment is against you. While the Cipher is at work decoding Awakening’s strange messages, hostile plants will spawn that damage and disorient players that get too close. Watch where you’re going or pay the price.

 

 

More Relics to Crank Up the Challenge

 

 

For the bold and reckless, Awakening introduces 5 new Relics, each adding a 20% multiplier to your score.

 

 

Fragile: Slow health regen, no regeneration while sprinting. Fall damage enabled.

Stand Your Ground: Move slower, and no reloading while sprinting.

No Machines: No Equalizers or Strike Packages available.

Limited Ammo: Less ammo from ammo crates and weapon pickups.

Earn Your Keep: No Ammo Type or Team Support items available to drop or pick up. No crafting or scavenging.

 

 

Once you’ve mastered the new challenges and intricacies of Episode 3, start experimenting with these Relics for a huge boost to your match score, not to mention the chance for extra Teeth.

 

 

Additional Prestige Levels & Armory Upgrades

 

 

Episode 3 introduces five more prestige levels, as well as some new goodies from the Armory, including:

 

 

Keep Valid Attachments: Attachments transfer to purchased weapons if valid for the new weapon.

Magnum ACOG: Start the level with an ACOG scope on your Magnum pistol.

No Snare: Hunters and Seekers no longer slow your movement speed on attack.

IMS Fast Trigger: The IMS more quickly detects and attacks nearby Cryptids.

IMS Flaming Pools: IMS explosions leave lingering fire pools.

 

 

Invasion

 

 

Episode 3: Awakening is included with Invasion, the third downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Along with Awakening, Invasion introduces four new multiplayer maps with Pharaoh, Departed, Mutiny, and Favela.

 

 

Invasion is available first on Xbox Live this Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014, with other platforms to follow.

 

 

Good luck!

The Extinction storyline continues with Episode 3: Awakening. As part of the CIF Team, 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.

Return to Favela, a refreshed version of the fan-favorite Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2 map. The favela has seen substantial cosmetic changes – buildings once under-construction are now complete, while others have aged into a state of disrepair. Fight along the connected rooftops and narrow passageways, all in a effort to harness the power of a familiar aerial artillery.

Set in a rural Mexican town amidst the Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) celebration, Departed is a medium-sized map features a classic three-lane design. The decorative streets, back alleys, and festive cemetery have plenty of cover for run-and-gunners, but still features some long-range engagements. Complete the map’s unique Field Order to unlock the Death Mariachi: dual-wielded pistols that turn downed enemies into your own squadmates.
