The first trailer for the upcoming Call of Duty game, called “Call of Duty: Ghosts”, was unveiled after last night’s Xbox One announcement. Unlike EA and DICE’s epic 17-minute gameplay video, CoD: Ghosts’ video is more run of the mill, with a focus to the storyline and epic sequences that the Call of Duty series have been known for in the past.
According to developers Infinity Ward, the new CoD title will also be powered by a new graphics engine that promises “amazing graphic fidelity and new innovative ways to play the game”. While the new graphics engine does not feature environment destructibility like that on Frostbite in EA’s Battlefield series, it also adds some new nifty movement-related features, such as the ability to retain momentum and automatically jump over small obstacles, and also to slide in and out of the battelfield – similar to what the Medal of Honor game implemented.
As we also know, “Ghosts” will feature a new set of characters, and a brand new story. Infinity Ward have revealed that the story will be written by Academy Award-winning writer Stephen Gaghan, whose previous works include “Traffic” and “Syriana”. Check out the behind-the-scenes video embedded after the jump – it’s a must-watch for all CoD fans.
