Call of Duty is incredibly popular. Approximately a gagillion people play the game online, and many, I suspect, are eagerly anticipating the upcoming Ghosts chapter in the franchise. What will this next iteration bring to the deathmatch crowd? The following multiplayer reveal trailer provides some hints. Warning: the Eminem soundtrack is laced with adult language.
According to Mashable, the song comes from Eminem's forthcoming album. It seems game trailers are now being used to new promote music, which makes a certain amount of sense. Over 1.1 million folks have viewed the Ghosts trailer since it was posted yesterday, and that number is likely to continue to grow. The first Ghosts reveal trailer has amassed 16 million views since May 21.
While Eminem provides fresh tunes, the gameplay looks like more of the same. Ghosts promises more guns and new modes, but it all feels like something I've played before. The environmental destruction shown off in the trailer isn't as impressive as what's been highlighted in Battlefield 4 trailers, either. I'm not even sure it's on par with BF3.
To be fair, there are a couple of unique twists. Dogs will factor into the multiplayer, though it's unclear whether they'll be autonomous sidekicks, controlled by players, or something in between. Also, for the first time in the CoD series, you'll be able to play as a female soldier.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is due November 5 on pretty much every modern gaming platform under the sun. If you pre-order the game, you'll get an additional multiplayer map set in a "shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse."
