The creative studio behind Call of Duty franchise, Activision, are taking big steps to improve the game for a better user experience. The team is currently working on the brand new ideas for the game like Underwater wars and using another device as a second screen for the game.
While Infinity Ward has added the hopping (vaulting), sliding and leaning mechanisms in Call of duty: Ghosts, the studio is still striving hard to make the game better than it’s predecessors.
A few more things they have promised to in-corporate in the forthcoming game include more dynamic and interactive environments and the ability to modify your player.
In an interview with GI, Eric Hirshberg of Infinity Ward said that there is an entire mission in Call of Duty: Ghosts dedicated to underwater wars.
The original statement states, “If you look at the trailer, there’s an entire level that takes place underwater. We’ve had underwater scenes before where you scuba dive from here to there, but this is a whole new thing with underwater physics and underwater gameplay and underwater weapons.” This definitely sounds good but will this be applied to multiplayer as well; we don’t know as of yet.
One more thing that we already know is that Call of Duty usually features 12 to 18 players in Ground War mode of multiplayer but what was asked from Hirshberg was if the studio plans on increasing the number of players to 64 or 100 in normal game modes and his answer was not satisfying as he said that the studio plans on sticking to the winning formula.
What he said was, “It’s hard to argue with the number of people that play it every day and every month. We have a winning formula. We always innovate within that. We always find new ways to keep it fresh and new.”
It is also believed that the Smart Glass will become an essential part of Call of duty: Ghosts as Hirshberg believes that a second screen with gameplay will overall enhance the game’s experience.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will release on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Microsoft Windows on November 5th 2013. And it will also come on Xbox One and Playstation 4.
