Call of Duty: Ghosts is the 2013 addition to the popular first person shooter franchise and delivers the strong single player plot and solid multiplayer that the series is known for. The game was also one of the early games to be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
In terms of the campaign you’ll find a fairly standard Call of Duty experience that is filled with action and variety. During this campaign you’ll be taking control of Logan Walker but some other playable characters are introduced during your adventure. Logan is part of the elite Ghosts unit that perform a number of missions behind enemy lines on behalf of the U.S. Special Operations. Much of the game focuses on the battle between the Federation (a new global super power) and their ex-Ghost puppet Gabriel Rorke.
Like most Call of Duty games the single player only makes up a small amount of the overall content that you will experience. Multiplayer is where you’ll spend most of your game time and with some fresh ideas behind the multiplayer Call of Duty: Ghosts promises to be more than the standard experience.
The most notable change is the introduction of interactive game environments that can be changed or even destroyed during gameplay. Players can also access a unique nuke kill streak known as the ODIN Strike on a few maps if they are able to defeat the top player on the opposing team and then complete several additional challenges.
These changes along with a few small other tweaks aim to make each map a more immersive and responsive experience beyond what followers of the series are used to.
Players can also expect a completely new game mode in Call of Duty: Ghosts known as Squads where you can create your own squad of ten customisable characters. You can then take this team into a number of solo and multiplayer game modes for something entirely new.
Call of Duty has been a long running series and with the release of Ghosts shows no signs of slowing with some nice fresh ideas to the series.
