It took hundreds of irate letters to Activision complaining that Call of Duty: Ghosts didn’t feature a single ghost, but they’ve finally listened. As part of the upcoming Invasion DLC, Ghosts will finally be getting some actual spooks.

In one of the four new multiplayer maps included in the pack—the Caribbean pirate–themed Mutiny—completing a field order will net you a special killstreak that summons spectral swashbucklers who’ll follow you around and take down enemies. A second map, Departed, introduces a bit more ghostly flair, as its set in a Mexican city during the Dia de Los Muertos festival. Earn the unique killstreak here, and you’ll be able to become the Death Mariachi, a skull-faced warrior with dual pistols who converts the enemies he kills into AI allies. Rounding out the selection of new maps are Pharaoh, set in an abandoned Egyptian archaeological dig, and Favela, an update to the popular Modern Warfare 2 map of the same name.

Finally, Invasion will also expand the cooperative, alien-hunting Extinction mode with the third episode in the four-part story. This time, you’re headed underground to find out more of the mysterious truth behind the Cryptid invasion, but you’ll need to fight a few new enemy types to get there.

Invasion will be available on Xbox One and Xbox 360 this Tuesday, June 3. No date has been given for other platforms, but given the exclusivity gap of the previous two DLC packs, it’ll likely hit sometime in early July.
