Call of Duty: Onslaught

COD-Ghosts-Onslaught_Bayview-Action-620x350Call of Duty: Ghosts gets a much needed update with the release of Onslaught, the first of four planned DLC packs for the game.  The new content requires the full version of Ghosts to play and offers up a plethora of content including four new maps, a dual mode weapon, and a new episode of the alien invasion game, Extinction.  For me Ghosts was filled with frustration on the multi play side as I found many maps were too large and encouraged camping, which as anyone who has been spawn killed numerous times in a row will tell you, leads quickly to frustration.
