There's a lot of weight on the shoulders of Activision as they unveil their first taste of multiplayer for their next-gen shooter, Call of Duty: Ghosts. Not only do they have to deliver a great game for new consoles, but they also have to compete with EA's upcoming mega shooter, Battlefield 4. Has this multiplayer reveal trailer they just put out delivered? Well that's for you to decide.
People constantly complain about certain aspects of Call of Duty. "No recoil" this and "not realistic" that. Well, just imagine playing a realistic military shooter. Ten bucks says you'd get bored of the slow pace after awhile. The one thing I like about CoD is they tend not to change a whole lot going from game to game; they simply add additional flavor and a few new features here and there. For some, it's not enough, but record breaking sales don't lie, sorry.
What Ghosts has done is enhanced the player customization aspects as well as used the power of next-gen through destructible environments. I guess other games have been doing it for awhile already but CoD is a true-to-heart arcade shooter so the additional mayhem should add to the fun. See here, Call of Duty 4 was such a blast but the game was incredibly simple. I find that these added gimmicks make people sad but in the end, they still play and more often that not your going to have a good time (unless all you want to do is win). Also, Ghosts has a dog, so still winning, hehe.
I'll leave you to the trailer below. The game has a ton of new features and you can finally play as a female soldier! Call of Duty: Ghosts launches for both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 as well as next-gen: Xbox One & Playstation 4 on November 5th, 2013.
Why Mr. Serra, I do believe I am detecting a small amount of bias in this article in favor of the COD franchise. Should we start calling you Ken of Duty? :P
I will admit that the game is looking very shiny. I'm not a huge fan of military shooters but I have been known to load one up from time to time, so this may end up in my library eventually.
Maybe just a little lol. I like both BF and Medal of Honor but being too "serious" gets boring after awhile in multiplayer. That's similar to why Future Soldier did only alright because it was team reliant and very tactical. Sometimes, it's fun to just fool around with reckless violence that more often than not makes no realistic sense which is both CoD and Halo's biggest selling value I find.
Looks more fun and fast pace than Battlefield 4.
