Activision wants to remind you that Battlefield 4 isn’t the only next-gen shooter releasing this year to feature impressive destructible environment.
A new pre-order bonus map called ‘Free Fall’ has been added to Call of Duty: Ghosts that’s said to “drop players into a shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse”. Is it just a coincidence that DICE showcased the same thing during their multiplayer reveal of Battlefield 4 during E3 last month?
The press release further adds that Free Fall will include “sideways staircases [that] climb into the night sky, elevator shafts [that] run along the ground, and what were once windows now form a terrifying glass floor, hundreds of feet above the city streets.”
That map is part of their new “dynamic map events” feature for multiplayer. Activision previously stated and showed how some maps can suffer earthquakes and floods that change the course of battle.
“Dynamic map events change the way players approach the game, and Free Fall does a great job illustrating this new mechanic,” said Mark Rubin, executive producer at Infinity Ward. “As the match progresses, the geometry of the world continues to change and players need to adjust on the fly or else. It’s a really fun new feature that adds layers of strategy and constantly evolving gameplay options for players. And this is just one of the many new approaches we’re putting into Ghosts’ multiplayer across the board. There’s so much more that we look forward to sharing in the weeks to come.”
