Call of Duty: Ghosts’ third map pack ‘Invasion’ is out now, and VG247’s Dave Cook has take each of the new environments out for a spin. See them in action and check out some gameplay tips in our new videos.
The Invasion pack features new maps Mutiny, Pharaoh and Departed, along with returning Modern Warfare 2 environment Favela and a new Extinction chapter called Awakening.
It launched for Xbox One and Xbox 360 on June 3, and should hit PlayStation formats and PC in coming weeks. The version you see running in the videos below is Xbox One, and I have to admit; these maps are some of the better locales Ghosts has to offer.
Let’s crack on with the videos and some tips:
It’s a bloody pirate-themed map, which should appeal to fans of sea dogs everywhere. At Mutiny’s centre lies a spooky galleon docked at port, and it serves as the map’s focal point, offering three tiers from which to snipe and an interior cabin. The surrounding shanty town is full of walkways and staircases leading towards the middle, while its dingy taverns are superb for shotgun and SMG users. Be wary of long-range players here, that’s the key.
This is a big map that is rammed full of wide open areas funnelling off down multiple routes. That’s a problem for those who want to stand still and play it cautious, because no matter where you are, you can be seen from various angles. The trick here is to keep moving but do so at a considered pace. Get your scope up, lean around corners and don’t charge in blindly.
Next up: Departed and Favela.
