Just an hour ago Activision and Infinity Ward debuted the multiplayer component for Call of Duty: Ghosts, which incidentally is also being marked as the “biggest multiplayer overhaul since Modern Warfare” by the studio producer Mark Rubin.
The reveal event set in Los Angeles today brought to our attention that players in the new Call of Duty title will be granted access to 30 new weapons, 20 new killstreaks and over 20,000 possible customization options.
You might remember the latter to be mentioned at E3 in June and the prospect of customizing your character will indeed bring a new flavor to the franchise. The very first official multiplayer trailer was released as well which you can view above.
The most surprising part of the event though was the announcement of being able to play as a female soldier in the multiplayer. This is the very first time that Call of Duty players will be able to change sexes and personally I believe that this will also bring about new forms of repulsive chats in-game.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will also see to the revamping of a couple of classic modes and introduce new versions called Cranked and Search and Rescue.
Cranked is your basic Team Death Match but places all players under a timer. Scoring a kill every thirty seconds allows you to unlock faster movement speeds and in-game perks. Running out of time makes you explode into tiny bits.
Search and Rescue gives your team mates the ability to revive fallen comrades. Allies will have to collect friendly tags from fallen mates which will give them a respawn. However if enemies rush in and loot those tags, you’re done for.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will release for all major platforms this fall.
