File this under “left field” which is right next to “out of”, because who would’ve ever seen this coming? Legendary horror icon Michael Myers is heading to the world of Call of Duty: Ghosts in a new DLC pack.
Activision made the announcement earlier today via a trailer (which you can view down below) for their new DLC pack “Onslaught”. Myers is a special unlockable bonus that is achieved only by playing on the “Fog” map. While playing on that map, players will get the opportunity to complete a special Field Order which will allow them to don the iconic Michael mask and wield a bloody axe. Why an axe and not a butcher knife? Who knows, but once you become Myers the soundscape of the map changes and everyone knows you’re coming for them.
This isn’t the first time a horror icon has made a surprise appearance in a video game. In the most recent Mortal Kombat game Freddy Krueger was available as a special DLC fighter. It’s a crazy concept, but I’ll take my horror icons where I can get them.
“Onslaught” will launch on XBox 360 and XBox One first on January 28th with Playstation owners getting it on a later date.
