Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC Releases January 28, According to Poster

A Call of Duty: Ghosts poster that has been making rounds on Twitter allegedly reveals the release date of the game’s first multiplayer expansion.

According to the poster, and as YouTube personality TWiiNSANE predicted last November, Call of Duty: Ghosts’ first map pack, Onslaught, will launch first on Xbox Live this Tuesday, January 28.

The add-on will give players access to four new multiplayer maps; Fog, Bay View, Containment, and Ignition. In addition, a new AR/Sniper Rifle called the Maverick will make an appearance, as will the first installment of Extinction’s new four-part episodic content, Episode 1: Nightfall.

Check out the poster below:


Earlier, Infinity Ward and Activision released a short video detailing Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Season Pass and the type of content you’ll find within over the game’s life cycle. You can watch it right here.

As with all Call of Duty DLC, PlayStation and PC users can expect Onslaught a month after its release on Xbox.

    Did i read a AR/Sniper Hybrid, or one of each ?

    • Sal

      A lot of people are thinking it’s a hybrid. But there is a ‘&’ in between the name of the gun/s so my first guess was 2 guns. Whenever the trailer comes out will clarify it.

  • Mr. Thuggins

    Soooo they’re just bringing back the CM901? The need to bring back the M60E4. Love me a high powered LMG, which are much better than these weak ones they have now. There’s no advantage to using an LMG if you run slower and have the same damage as an AR.

    • Jason Lane

      LMGs have always had AR damage. The difference is LMGs have sniper range and large ammo counts.

      • Mr. Thuggins

        And there has always been at least one with high damage/low fire rate, but that’s missing from this game for some reason.

        • James K

          What about the Ameli? It deals 50 damage up to 13 meters and has a fire rate of 631RPM.

          • Mr. Thuggins

            Forgot about that one! Still not as satisfying as using the M60E4, but it is pretty powerful.

          • Jason Lane

            Good point James but I’ve been reading this site for a year now and this Thuggins kid is just going to disagree no matter what. That’s why I’ve started posting here. There’s a couple of these guys I’m going to go after because I’m tired of reading their BS on every article.

            • James K

              Heh heh, I won’t stop you on your mission but don’t get too toxic.

        • Jason Lane

          I was replying to your statement about there being no advantage to using LMGs. Not whether or not they’re powerful. The M60 from Modern Warfare might have felt powerful because of the kick, but it still dealt AK-47 damage.

  • Ricardo

    I’m so confused is it a hybrid or two weapons in one DLC? :l

    • Mr. Thuggins

      Only gave one name so, I’m assuming it’s just a hybrid and not multiple guns.

  • Bill

    wondering if the AR/Sniper will be one of these

  • MegaMan3k

    What’s an “AR & Sniper Rifle” that would not be a “Marksman Rifle”?

    • Brandon Stern

      Look at the poster, it says; “Maverick AR & Sniper Rifle” so I suppose there are actually two new weapons instead of one?


    Everytime I see that first on xbox live shit it irks the shit out of me. If I paid for the game & bought a season pass why should I have to wait for content…

  • Leon

    I feel really sorry for people who will buy this DLC for PC. It will be a real ghost town on DLC’s playlists and even a huge onslaught of ghosts won’t be able to fill it up.

    • MeisseN

      These days all gamemodes except TDM and DOM are ghost towns as well.. heh, blame the optimization.
