UPDATE: Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion DLC, Flags of the World Pack, and Squad Pack – Resistance are now available on PC on Steam here.

The third DLC pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts – Invasion – is now available for players on PlayStation Network. The new DLC brings 4 new multiplayer maps and Extinction Episode 3: Awakening. The DLC pack costs $14.99 or it’s free as part of the Season Pass. If you have the Season Pass, be sure to download from the in-game store. PC players: these should be available starting at 1pm ET today.

Here’s what’s included in Invasion DLC: 

Multiplayer Maps:

  • “Departed” is a medium-sized map set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration. The colorfully decorated streets, vendor carts and storefronts provide ample cover for run-and-gunners, and players that complete the map’s unique Field Order will unlock the Death Mariachi killstreak. Armed with dual-wielding pistols, the Death Mariachi settles scores, with each kill turning enemy players into another member of the band, and a temporary squad mate.
  • “Pharaoh” is the abandoned archeological site of an ancient Egyptian palace. Players will have to be on the lookout for collapsing monuments and urns full of flesh-eating scarabs, among other surprises in this multi-level map. Inside the palace, gamers will battle through multiple chambers ideal for close-quarters combat and short-range weapons, all under the watchful eye of Anubis, the half-jackal/half-human, protector of the dead, who will handsomely reward players who unlock this map’s Field Order.
  • “Mutiny,” transports players to a remote Caribbean island harboring an eerie pirate hideout complete with abandoned trading posts and prison cells. Speed and stealth are a must as players navigate the narrow and intertwining pathways. However, let ye be warned that gamers taking up positions on the pirate ship moored in the center of the map will become vulnerable to enemy fire from the numerous flanking routes created by the map’s horseshoe shaped dock. Players that unlock “Mutiny’s” Field Order will find themselves escorted by two ethereal ghost pirates, who will happily send enemy combatants down to Davey Jones’ locker on their behalf.
  • MW2′s “Favela” returns. Since its original release, the Brazilian shantytown has seen substantial change. Buildings once under construction are now complete, while others have crumbled into a state of disrepair. Players must avoid falling to their death as they traverse the map from one building to the next, with ramshackle scaffolding creating varied pathways between structures, and enemy snipers taking advantage of the long sightlines. Players who complete the Field Order in “Favela” will be able to call in heavy air support from a nearby Y-8 Gunship to bring the rain with a 105mm cannon, a 40mm auto-cannon and a 25mm cannon.


  • “Episode 3: Awakening.” In Awakening, the team descends into the perilous alien underworld to strike at the subterranean fortress of the Ancestors – the mysterious puppet-masters behind the Cryptid invasion. Armed with a range of new hi-tech weapons and equipment, the team must penetrate a series of defensive barriers to reach the Ark and unlock the secrets of the Ancestors’ psychic powers. As the final battle draws closer, the fate of the Earth and the future of the human race hang in the balance.

  • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

    The maps of this DLC were crap . Except for the Departed one and Favela, those were cool.

    • I think all the maps were great! Except for Departed. IMO that one sucks because I feel there are way to many camping spots and random obstacles placed everywhere.

      • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

        I mean I just downloaded today the map pack went to play in Mutiny and the boat on the middle of the map was full of IED’s and campers.For example in Favela i only found one camper laying around with is m27 but i killed the bastard 🙂 .

        • Yeah, the first time I played Mutiny I couldn’t figure how to get on the boat, and when I spawned on the boat, I couldn’t figure how to get off of it! I usually just avoid it, but other than that, its a pretty good map.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            Yeah aside from the boat it has good elements. The map i hated more was Pharaoh I was so confused with that map.

          • ccrows

            That’s because there’s a small learning curve to it – including the treasure room easter egg with the 3 torches.

            Still, when you get it down, you’ll see that it’s easy to play…

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            I just wanted them to do another weapon in Invasion,because honestly I bought the season pass just for the weapons.But now you can buy them separately …

          • To me Pharaoh wasn’t the best. It seemed like one side of the map was completely open, and the other was just cluttered with useless obstacles. It was pretty fast paced for me, though. So it was okay.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            Tome the best maps of this whole thing were Collision,Unhearted and Fog.The worst was Ruins .

          • Yeah, Collision is my favorite. And the other day I was playing on a server and the only two maps of choice were Flooded and Ruins. I dislike both of those maps so much I left the lobby. When I tried to find another one, though, it gave me the same lobby. I lather, rinsed, and repeated 3 times until I got a different map choice.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            My only problem with Flooded are the guys hiding on corners and the IED’s cloaked in the water of the floor .

        • ccrows

          Get used to more people camping in the “Ice cream shop” on Favela.

          Still it plays good, and the World Cup skin was a nice touch…

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            Yeah it’s really a cool map . But it s not like in MW2. All that action,grenades and semtex flying,I mean every 2 in 2 seconds there’s an explosion. Favela in Ghosts plays more slow but I like it .

          • ccrows

            That’s because people were abusing OMA.

            Any other game that would have been a game-breaking glitch that gets patched. In MW2’s world we call it a “perk”. *sigh*

            Couldn’t stand that broke ass game. At least we get to play the maps from it without all the OMA BS…

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            I’m a fan of Ghosts myself,honestly I prefer it to BLOPS 2.I mean the weapon balance,the perk system but people love fast paced games and not dying quickly .

  • oL0RDo


  • xLowkeyBAMZ

    I’ll pass

  • Jasy

    This is the worst map pack by far. Every map blows. So much campers and getting shot from every direction is fucking irritating. The only map that is remotely good is Favela.

    • Virus-Nothing

      i think the worst one was Onslaught.But those campers tho

      • Jasy

        I know right. The campers are UNBELIEVEABLE.

  • Virus-Nothing

    cant wait forit on ps3 got season pass thank you for that but when im enjoying the new maps hope i wont get killed by EVERYBODY IN GHOST

  • Damien Anderson

    Really hoping the Nemesis map pack will have a new gun. Hopefully more verticality in the maps as well. Those crows nests in Mutiny are a fucking tease.

    • Penguin-Kun

      What anime is your profile pic? I’m on an anime marathon, if it is an anime 😀

      • Damien Anderson

        Rosario+Vampire. The manga is better though (it has more of a focused plot, better character development, and cooler fight scenes). Way too much fan service in the anime.

        • Vermell

          That’s the Ice girl right?

          • Damien Anderson

            Yeah. Mizore Shirayuki.

  • Plato/Tomato

    Best of the map packs so far. So goddamned good.

    • I think it’s the worst:
      • No new Weapon
      • No new Boss for Extinction
      • Only fun map is Favela (Imo)

      It’s like getting less for the same $15

  • All the BO2 DLCs were better than this. Favela is the only reason I think its okay but really favela should be free to all like terminal was in MW3

    • jordanxbrookes

      The only reason why Terminal was free was because of Robert Bowling.

      • Angelreborn96

        They need that man back… I swear to god.

      • UpRiftCOD

        I wish they would remake high rise

        • Potato Republic

          Yes, because the things we need back are noob tube kills right at the start of the map..

    • Jack Meoff

      Well then you go and play all your “BETTER” bo2 DLCS and dont tell me you still dont play ghosts and if you dont why are you even wasting your time coming on here and LOOKING AT GHOSTS STUFF????

      • Whoa buddy calm down. I am entitled to my own opinions and I can post on this whenever I want. Why dont you grow up and stop whining about why you think BO2 isnt as good as ghosts.

  • Simon

    Extinction is very good as usual, multiplayer maps are eh.. pretty shit as usual.

  • faze chaggin

    damnnn i had this map pack a month ago…

    • Jack Meoff

      Yea and how does it feel to be playing them in 720p? have fun

      • faze chaggin

        how does it feel ? its not much dif since i play on a benq monitor but btw how does it feel to play a game at 1080p with massive frame drops ? and dont tell me no because i fuckin have a ps4 and the frame drops were fucking terrible

  • I would say “No weapon = No purchase” But I have the season pass, so I guess i’ll get it anyways 🙁

  • JackOrJohn

    I hate the fact that the amount of people who sit in corners in Ghosts compared to the amount that sit in corners in all other CoD’s isn’t even funny. Why Ghosts why?

    • Mitch

      One thing that really jumps out is the people camping prone with Ghillie Suits.

      • UpRiftCOD

        I think its only fair if you’re sniping. Unless you’re using a thermal sniper, then you can gtfo

  • Ech!

    Awakenings fun & challenging. until you bounce off the mushroom and into the abyss in solo, yeah…

  • Diego Diniz

    Sorry my bad english cause im brazilian, but I bought Onslaught DLC and Devastation DLC for PC and CAN NOT FIND players to play! I want to buy a Console (xbox or PS4) to play COD because PC is dead…we cant find players to play. Every DLC i want o play the maps and i cant find enoug players to make a complete lobby! Thats sux.

  • I just want Nemesis out so this year can be over and we get our look at AW multiplayer
