Nemesis, the fourth and final downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts, launches Aug. 5 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, giving players all-new ways to kill each other in multiplayer. From mine carts to evil Canadian blizzards to vertical take off fighter jets, there's no shortage of fresh opportunities for virtual killing.
Included in Nemesis are the maps Dynasty, Showtime, Subzero and Goldrush. Dynasty is a hectic small to medium-sized map, according to Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin, set in a Chinese lakeside village. It has a map-specific killstreak reward, a nod to the harrier strike from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Showtime plays out like a game show in a tight, tiny map based on Call of Duty 4's Shipment.
Things get a bit crazier in Subzero, which lets players call in a death-dealing blizzard — that has glowing red eyes — as a killstreak reward. And in Goldrush, players can ride in and run over other players in mine carts, a video game staple that suits the Old West mining town theme.
Rounding out the Nemesis DLC pack is the fourth chapter in Ghosts' cooperative Extinction campaign. Players will battle the insect-like Cryptid and face a new enemy that fights with psionic and mind control abilities. If any of this sounds too outlandish, remember that Call of Duty: Ghosts' previous DLC add-ons featured Halloween's Michael Myers and the Predator.
Nemesis costs $14.99 and is included as part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts season pass. Expect it to hit non-Xbox platforms in the coming weeks and months.
