Call Of Duty's DLC Will Turn You Into Michael Myers From Halloween

Call of Duty's DLC Will Turn You Into Michael Myers from Halloween

That quick tease Activision gave this morning of Call of Duty's new maps "doesn't look anything like Call of Duty," I said. Well, there's a reason you're lugging around a fire axe. One map, "Fog" will turn you into Michael Myers, the killer from Halloween.

Completing a field order in fog turns you into the bogeyman from the famous slasher flick, and may reference the emergent game type CoD fans would mutually agree to play in Team Deathmatch in which only knives were allowed.

Other maps will award an artillery strike from warships in the harbor, or the opportunity to trigger a rocket engine (in a map based on one from Modern Warfare 2.) Bayview also offers everyone a sentry gun positioned in a mobile trolley car.

You can see what the other four maps have to offer, plus "Nightfall," the first epsiode in a new miniseries based on the Extinction mode.

This is all great and interesting and looks like fun but I really have to wonder at what point Call of Duty is no longer Call of Duty and is instead a series of mods, one of them being a military shooter.

    I made the mistake of buying this game on PC because the frame rate is unstable as fuck and freezes regularly.

    Sooo... NOT Austin Powers or Wayne Campbell then? Sorry, I read Mike Myers and think of the comedy actor, not the horror movie killer

      ha, imagine Wayne and Garth in an FPS.... there better be a button to "Schwing"

    Wait, is this what Call of Duty has become? So unoriginal that it needs pop culture characters to liven it up?

      Well the second mission in CoD4 is pretty much an Aliens reference in disguise, so there's that. :P

      So was Mortal Kombat 9 unoriginal and scorn worthy for including Freddy Krueger as a playable character?
      This really goes to show that some people against Call of Duty will seriously bitch about any and every direction that they take.

    TV Tropes said it couldn't happen, but Call of Duty has finally become an artifact title.
