Activision and Infinity Ward has just released a trailer for the upcoming Exctinction Episode that’ll be coming as part of the Onslaught DLC on January 28 exclusively first to Xbox Live.
Bringing with it the same wave-based gameplay as Treyarch’s Zombies Mode, Extinction pits you and three other players against endless waves of Aliens in an attempt to destroy the Hives that can be found dotted around the abandoned town. Much like with Treyarch’s Zombies mode Infinity Ward are planning to release four Episodes for the Extinction mode with the first coming in the Onslaught DLC on January 28.
Episode 1: Nightfall is set at a remote facility in the Alaskan wilderness, the shadowy Nightfall Program has been researching the origins of the “Alien” threat. When the scientists lose control, a small team of elite soldiers must retrieve the intel, exterminate hordes of hostile creatures and survive a three-story tall terror unlike anything they’ve faced before.
Following on from the Extinction campaign that came with Ghosts, this new episode gives us an insight into the new characters as well as the introduction to a few brand-new Aliens, Nightfall looks to be absolutely freaking terrifying..
