Invasion DLC Pack Delivers Four New MP Maps and the
More Unique Field Orders Debut in New DLC Pack, Including The Death Mariachi, Anubis - the Half-Jackal/Half-Human Protector of the Dead, and Ghost Pirates

Invasion's four new small-to-medium-sized multiplayer maps feature the fast-paced gameplay Call of Duty fans crave, each one donning a distinct look, feel and unique killstreak. "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.

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

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.
