Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion launches for Xbox 360, Xbox One June 3

Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion, downloadable content including the third episode in its four-part episodic story, will launch for Xbox 360 and Xbox One June 3, Activision announced today.

"Episode 3: Awakening" takes place as Ghosts' heroes "descent into the perilous alien underworld." Once there, players will serach for those 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," the announcement reads. "As the final battle draws closer, the fate of the Earth and the future of the human race hang in the balance."

The pack also adds new multiplayer maps: Departed, Pharaoh, Mutiny and Favela. Departed is set in a "rural Mexican town" during the Day of the Dead celebrations, while Pharaoh takes place in an abandoned archaeological site in Egypt. Mutiny is set on a remote Caribbean island, where players must use speed and stealth to kill their opponents.

The final map, Favela, "is a refreshed version of the fan-favorite map" seen in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

"Since its original release, the Brazilian shantytown has seen substantial change," the announcement reads. "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."

The DLC will be available for $14.99. For those that own the game's season pass — which provides access to Onslaught, Devastation, Invasion and Nemesis — the content is free. A release on other platforms will follow.
