Play as Michael Myers In Call of Duty: Ghosts DLCJanuary 13, 2014
Today Activision teased the announcement of the first DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts, tweeting “something menacing is coming Jan. 28. Get ready for the #Onslaught.”
Well, it turns out that something menacing is Michael Myers himself, straight from John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic Halloween. You can check out his reveal in a new video released by Activision, below.
Myers will be a playable character in the new Fog map, where players can murder hapless victims with an axe in a horror-themed location sporting an abandoned cabin, torture chamber, and campsite.
Infinity Ward plans to release four DLC packs for Call of Duty: Ghosts, including Onslaught, Devastation, Invasion and Nemesis. The first letter of each word forms ODIN, the father of thunder god Thor in Norse mythology. Maybe we’ll be able to wield Mjolnir against Michael Myers in the final DLC pack (/sarcasm). ODIN was also the name of the satellite weapon that destroyed most of the United States in the game.
If you own the Season Pass, you’ll get Onslaught for free, but Infinity Ward hasn’t stated what the pack will cost as a standalone purchase. It’s coming to Xbox first (big surprise) on January 28.
