As promised Call of Duty Ghosts got it’s first proper trailer at the long awaited Xbox One reveal event. The trailer shows off the protagonist (I think) narrating the current situation of the world devastated by war. To be honest the graphics look a lot better but I was personally expecting more from the new engine, especially when it’s running on a next gen consoles but it’s probably alpha footage which will obviously improve with time.
Check out the debut trailer below:
Bonus behind the scenes trailer:
Activision’s Eric Hirshberg arrived on stage at the Xbox One event to introduce the game and confirm that it’ll be running on a brand new Call of Duty engine with new characters, a brand new settings and story. Developers Infinity Ward didn’t want to play it safe and create the inevitable Modern Warfare 4 and decided to create a new sub IP instead.
Story wise the USA is facing severe turmoil and is devastated by war, and it’s up to the Ghosts elite team of soldiers to fight the incoming threat. Along with your elite team, you also have a dog in your squad which helps your squad in combat sniffing out explosives.
On the multiplayer side Infinity Ward confirmed more dynamic maps like Hydro from Black Ops 2 that has water flooding elements built in. Avatars are also customizable this time around like in Black Ops 1 with the helmets, clothing and armor able to be changed to the players choice. The game will also be running at 60fps but the resolution is still not confirmed.
Unfortunately for PC and Playstation fans the Microsoft Activision DLC exclusivity deal still continues to this generation which means that the Xbox platforms will be getting DLC for Call of Duty Ghosts a month before the others.
