Activision has pumped out a big preview for Onslaught, the CoD DLC featuring new Extinction content, fresh maps and the Maverick rifle. And a horror icon. Watch the video here.

Episode 1: Nightfall is the first of four Extinction episodes extending the narrative behind the sci-fi spin-off, featuring an all new alien species and a new weapon.

The DLC also includes the Maverick rifle, a weapon that can be customised as either an assault rifle or sniper rifle.

By far the most interesting addition though is one of the four maps – Fog – which lets players take on the persona of Halloween’s horror icon Michael Myers and play through a medium-sized location featuring an abandoned cabin in the woods, a campsite and torture chamber. It even includes the classic Halloween soundtrack.

The other three maps are Containment, BayView and Ignition. Prepare for release on January 28th.
