Call of Duty: Ghosts' second map pack 'Devastation' will release on Xbox One and Xbox 360 on April 3, Activision has announced. A release on other platforms will follow at a later date.

Devastation includes four new small-medium sized maps, including Ruins, Collision, Behemoth and Unearthed and a brand new Extinction episode, taking the battle against the alien invasion to an abandoned Chinese vessel adrift in the South Pacific Ocean.

The DLC will also include The Ripper, a brand new hybrid weapon that transforms from an SMG to an Assault Rifle, allowing users to clear rooms up-close before flipping up a sight to target mid-range enemies.

As an added bonus, Xbox One and Xbox 360 Season Pass owners can access The Ripper from today.

Take a look below for more details on the maps or check out the video to see them in action. And if you have an Xbox 360 or Xbox One and want to try out Ghosts' multiplayer for free this weekend, head through here.

  • Ruins is located on a Mexican peninsula and set amidst the remnants of a mountaintop Mayan temple, with multiple levels providing verticality for longer-range weapons and underground pathways perfect for close-quarters encounters. Savvy players that find and complete the unique Field Order will be able to trigger the map's volcano to erupt and enjoy watching enemy players attempt to take cover as fiery debris fall from the sky.
  • Collision is a mangle of debris scattered atop a container ship pinned underneath a crippled bridge in New York. This small map is ideal for run-and-gun tactics. Players that dominate Collision and complete the map's specific Field Order will be able take control of a heavily armed aircraft and rain down destruction from above.
  • Behemoth takes the battle aboard a massive excavation platform in South America. Long sight lines open this map up to longer-range weapons, while the compact interiors of the control rooms are ideal for SMG's and Shotguns. Completing Behemoth's Field Order will allow players to control an attack helicopter armed with a deadly, armor-piercing Rail Gun as it circles the excavator searching for enemy combatants.
  • Unearthed drops players into a reimagined version of Dome, the fan-favourite multiplayer map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. With a new look and all-new secrets, Unearthed is a compact map for all player types, who must navigate an alien artefact dig site in order to unlock the map's Field Order and unleash the power of the Cryptids, as well as locate the map's secret alien weapon.
