The Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer reveal trailer is out, and it’s about as adrenaline-rushing as you’d ever expect from one of the reigning champs of the online multiplayer shooter scene. Now, I could describe some of what you’re going to see in this trailer, but come on. Call of Duty? You know you’re going to be looking at some glorious action-packed combat footage with a skew towards multiplayer combat, gameplay modes, and upgrades peeks. The only question is if it all looks like a big jump over its immediate predecessor, and fun besides. Well, the answers are yes and yes. Be sure to check this one out if you’re a CoD fan, or just generally prone to get stoked about rampant gun-firing in multiplayer arenas.
Around 1:41 is what really catches my eye. There’s something about remote-controlling weapons of death and destruction that always grabs me in particular in games like these, and the promised tablet/phone integration intrigues me even more. I’ll be trying to get my hands on this one the moment it’s out, with big hopes that the drone-play aspects are as polished and fun as these videos present them to be.
Accompanying the trailer reveal was more information about the Season Pass and Collector’s Edition for Call of Duty: Ghosts:
- Call of Duty®: Ghosts Season Pass: Four epic DLC Map Packs for one discounted price (based on Season Pass suggested retail price of $49.99/4000 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live and four DLC Map Packs at a suggested retail price of $14.99/1200 Microsoft Points each). Included in the Season Pass is the Ghosts Team Leader Pack featuring for the first time a multiplayer character modeled from one of the characters from Ghosts’ single player campaign, along with additional bonus digital content. While the DLC Map Packs will be available starting in 2014, the Ghosts Team Leader Pack and other Season Pass bonus content activates immediately upon purchase following the game’s launch beginning Nov. 5, 2013. And, once purchased, the Season Pass will upgrade to next-gen (from Xbox 360 to Xbox One, and from PlayStation 3 system to PlayStation 4 system) for a limited time only at no additional cost.
- Call of Duty®: Ghosts Collector’s Editions: Two special editions covering the gamut of collector’s interest beginning with the Hardened Edition, including a copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts, the DLC Season Pass, limited edition Collectible Steelbook and Paracord Strap; and the Prestige Edition, which includes all content from the Hardened Edition, plus the Call of Duty: Ghosts Tactical Camera, a full HD 1080p, water resistant, wide-angle mounted, wearable camera based on the actual helmet camera featured in the game itself. Both the Hardened and Prestige Editions are available for pre-order starting today.
