Leaked COD: Ghosts Document Details Free Demo, Onslaught Trial, and New Personalization Packs

Call of Duty: Ghosts is getting a free demo, an Onslaught DLC trial, and new personalization packs, according to newly discovered info.

A PasteBin document shared with IGN indicates that a free Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught trial will commence this weekend, giving players access to the DLC’s four new maps; Fog, Containment, Bay View, and Ignition for a limited time. It will also include access to the Maverick Assault Rifle, the Maverick A2 Sniper Rifle, and Extinction Episode 1: Nightfall. Interestingly the document also makes mention of something called “The Ripper”, which players will allegedly have access to upon purchasing Call of Duty: Ghosts Season Pass.

In addition, the document mentions a Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer demo that will become available on March 21, during which the digital download version of the game will go on sale at an unspecified price. The demo will give players access to two game modes; Team Deathmatch and Domination on three multiplayer maps; Strike Zone, Warhawk, and Prison Break.

Lastly, the document has details on upcoming Call of Duty: Ghost personalization packs launching March 7 that will introduce a new set of characters to the game’s multiplayer. As with previous Ghosts micro-DLC we presume you’ll be able to snag the new multiplayer skins for $1.99 while the Makarov Legend Pack will most likely set you back $3.99. Check out the details below.

UPDATE: Call of Duty: Ghosts’ second wave of soldier skins and personalization packs have been officially announced. You can catch all the details, including info on upcoming Black Ops 2 personalization packs, right here.

“Play as Vladimir Makarov, one of the most ruthless villains in Call of Duty® history. This Pack contains a Makarov Multiplayer Character and unique Personalization Pack featuring a themed weapon camo, reticle, patch, playercard and background.”

We expect to hear official announcements from Infinity Ward and Activision in the coming days and weeks.

    Onslaught of microtransactions


    How can you blame Activision for milking every ounce out of Call of Duty. They’re getting ready for the inevitable day when no one cares about the game and all these micro-transactions are nothing but a fire sale…

    • Jason Lane

      Every franchise already does exactly what you just said. No surprises. Bitching attempt: fail.

    A free Multiplayer Demo? That sounds good. Hoping it will last forever so I don’t have any reason to buy COD.

    • Patrick Matthew Barahona

      Just like Homefront. But that didn’t last forever…It lasted so long that I thought it would last forever, but one day, it closed.

  • War Torn

    Damn! Why couldn’t they have released these on a Call of Duty game that I actually liked.

  • Zatanna XOXOXOXO

    I honestly do not see why people despise microtransactions so much, I mean if they do not directly effect gameplay or give any type of advantage why does it matter if they are there? They are 100% optional and only change appearance, so why exactly does everybody care so much? Sometimes I think it is just something for people to complain about.

    I hear the “It will lead to worse” argument but that is not something you can logically say or assume due to those assumptions falling under the slippery slope fallacy.

    • Jason Lane

      Because it gives people a reason to complain. Gamers are a spoiled lot, and that’s the main reason video games are considered childish. Put the industry in hands of a mature fan base and attitudes would change .

    • Leon

      Do you remember times when game producers were giving the full game at once with many more initial maps that they do now, and afterwards giving extra maps for free, and the mod tools to make maps ourselves? If yes, then you can see how it has deteriorated over time.

      • Zatanna XOXOXOXO

        Well in this case you cannot prove that micro transactions in particular are causing this, because you could say this about any DLC not just the micro ones. Unless you (not you in particular) are going to take a stand against all DLC in general it is highly illogical to target games that just have these. Show me the facts that prove microtransactions (those specifically, so do not talk about all DLC in general) are the direct cause, and if you don’t everything you have said is just logically flawed assumptions.

        Before you say it, no you cannot logically assume they will start doing it with things that actually affect gameplay, need I explain to you the slipper slope fallacy? You say it is logical to assume that, but I can quite literally prove it isn’t.

        Frankly (and this is just me) seeing as how most micro transactions take the form of costumes, camos ect I couldn’t care less if they are in the game or if they sell them. Also keep in mind people hated on ME3 for having micro transactions, but you literally earn all thise items in game so I really don’t see the problem with that. If it was something impactful I would care, but to me them removing cosmetic things just to sell them is not a problem.

        • Leon

          I have absolutely nothing to prove to you. I am just giving my point of view as a gamer since the time of Commodore 64. Take it or leave it. I don’t mind either way.

          For me the golden era of gaming ended with the end of a independent, truly devoted to their work artists, for whom their game was a labor of love and not just an ordinary business transaction run by corporate suits who will always vote for more money over any, more subtle values and experiences.

          I am nowhere saying that it is unethical. But let’s just say, that I personally hope that poetry and philosophy will never become a target for them for making profit because it will be the end of it as well as for the culture in general.

  • Leon

    It looks to me that they are sensing the imminence of the end of CoD franchise success and are desperately trying to milk out the last of their customer’s money by any means necessary. On the other hand, I own & played only Ghosts and BO2 and I don’t know whether it was their usual tactic in making DLC maps available for free for a limited time in other CoD games beyond those two.

  • Yevgenij Pekurovskyy

    Do you remember me joking about Makarov skin couple weeks back when they released Price skin? Here it is lol.

    • Jason Lane

      That’s not funny.

      • Brandon Griffin

        Not funny as sad, because IW is so desperate about making people like their game that we can predict their plans.

        • Yevgenij Pekurovskyy

          Why would they be desperate, they got peoples money already, they just cant stop. Even cod elite subscribers have to pay for this content, this is just insulting

          • Brandon Griffin

            They got significantly less money then 3arc did.

  • Buddy Fields

    Why does everyone complain about something they are NOT required to purchase. You can get the same experience without buying the characters, maps, or gun camo’s. Everyone knows what they are buying when they get cod so why complain, simple solution, dont buy it! I have enjoyed cod since cod4, I expect the same thing every year with small additions. Dont buy it, so you dont have to complain. People forget the are running a business and if they can put out a product to turn a profit they will. They are not forcing you to buy it. Sheesh!

  • thebulky1cometh

    Am I the only person who read all this and only cared about what “the ripper” is? Could it be another weapon? A piece of equipment?

    • BrodyLovesYou

      Gonna have to guess that it’s simply the knifing animation with a pretty cosmetic touch to it. AKA: Call Of Duty developers specialty.

  • Zakhaev? One arm or two haha (infinity Ward) charging an arm and (Trayarch) charging the legs!!!
