Call of Duty: Ghosts – Behind the Scenes Video Talks Story and Character Customization

By   /   3 years ago

With the announcement of next-gen, Activision has decided to leave behind the Modern Warfare franchise and pave the way ahead with a new Call of Duty series. I personally like this touch, since I was getting really sick and tired of writing about a new Modern Warfare every year.

Call of Duty: Ghosts was just unveiled during Microsoft’s Xbox event with a reveal trailer (above). The game is said to be powered by a new powerful game engine which will utilize the next-gen hardware to perfection.

As speculated before, Microsoft did indeed confirm a timed exclusive DLC partnership with publisher Activision for future Call of Duty titles, starting with Ghosts.

While the reveal trailer offers little in terms of story lines and character details, the ‘behind-the-scenes’ trailer does not disappoint. The trailer (below) tells us that the game begins with some catastrophic event caused by a “superior force” which cripples the government of America and leaves its leaders in disarray.

“Ghosts” is the code-name for an elite fighting force who will work their way forward against this “superior force” and bring order to the world.

The development process has specifically focused on creating an emotional attachment between the player and characters. For this purpose alone they brought in Oscar winning writer Stephen Gaghan (Traffic, Syrianna) to help with the game’s story. Apparently Gaghan thought it best to add a dog as the player’s companion to make players feel and care for it.

The video goes on to reveal gameplay features in light of the new game engine. Nothing new in the animations department, hopping off walls and sliding are pretty basic stuff and have been around for some time now. Visual details are impressive and AI seems to be improved.

The best thing from the trailer though was the announcement of character customization in multiplayer. Players can choose their own attire, badges, etc; making it a more personal warfare. I’m sure Activision would introduce several micro-transaction options to let players buy more refined gear.

Infinity Ward claims the game to run smoothly at 60fps, we’ll have to take them up on that claim.

Call of Duty: Ghosts releases November 5 for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
