So it’s official, Call of Duty: Ghosts will be on the next generation platforms, and reveaedl for XBOX. Coined the “XBOX One”, as in the One and Only, numero uno, one being better than two or three or four. Or maybe it just means ONE as in “ALL in ONE.” But I will let you be the judge of that.
Fans of the Call of Duty series were probably expecting another Modern Warfare title, Modern Warfare 4, even though a growing number of fans have been calling for change in the series. And change we may just get.
Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg said today during the live XBOX One press conference that:
“We’re pushing the genre and forward with Ghosts. We wanted to press the franchise forward with a new world and new engine.”
In Call of Duty: Ghosts fans will get to experience an all new game and new world run by an all new engine, giving this game some of the best graphics ever in the Call of Duty series. You can notice better graphics on characters and dogs, as well as on the guns. Let’s not forget about the self casting shadows; Not to mention better AI that will impact things as simple as fish moving out of the way and the improvements made to the dogs (like the stamp inside their ears). They won’t just attack enemies, but they will also sniff out explosives and so on. But don’t worry because this all new Call of Duty still has the same philosophies as all the others you’ve grown to know and love.
Along with all these changes comes some implements to the multiplayer. And since the multiplayer is the biggest aspect of Call of Duty, these changes are vital. First things first. Call of Duty: Ghosts promises to be packed with piles of character customizations. More than we have seen in any other title to date. Whether this tickles your fancy or not is completely up to you. And honestly only time will tell how “I” feel about these character customizations.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will have new dynamic maps that can and will be effected by the events as you play on them. Some events you will create by explosions and such and others will simply take place like earthquakes and floods. These events will directly change the maps.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will release on November 5th, 2013 and will be available for the XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3. It will also be available for the XBOX One and PlayStation 4, but as no release dates for these consoles have been announced the date is unknown.
