Late last night, Infinity Ward and Activision revealed its first trailer showcasing the multiplayer mode for its upcoming first-person blockbuster “Call of Duty: Ghosts”. Featuring 14 new multiplayer maps and several new features, the “Ghosts” multiplayer mode appears to tweak its already awesome gameplay.
One of the biggest new additions to “Ghosts” multiplayer mode is destructibility elements in the maps. Unlike Battlefield’s Frostbite engine, however, destructable environments in “Ghosts” appears limited to certain episodic triggers within the maps. Also new is an offline Squads mode, letting you equip your character and them to be selected in online matchmaking even if the player is not online. Also added is the new kill streak reward that allows you to summon a dog companion – which will also be part of a challenge completion. Check out the reveal trailer above, and the full set of new multiplayer features can be read here.
In addition, Activision will also launch a “Prestige Edition” of the game. And, like its previous editions, “Call of Duty: Ghosts Prestige Edition” packs some pretty sweet add-ons such as a collectible steelbook, paracord strap, a DLC Season pass…and a 1080p tactical camera. In an interesting twist, Activision hooked up with College Humor for its reveal trailer, showing off the bundled tactical camera with multiple mounting attachments in a parody to one of the more memorable gameplay elements in the “Modern Warfare” series. Check out the video above.
Activision will also release a “Hardened Edition” of “Ghosts”, which includes the bonus software content and omits the tactical camera, steelbook and paracord strap. Both collector’s editions can be pre-ordered at the official Call of Duty website here.
