It has been a while since Call of Duty: Ghosts was released. Millions of COD fans have bought the game and battled online in both the PC and console platforms. It is probably time now to release an expansion to make the game even better.
Yesterday, Infinity Ward released an official trailer for their next expansion “Onslaught”. The video was a really good one, you would even think that it was for a blockbuster action film.
The video’s plot was about ordinary citizens wanting to escape an ordinary day and experience the excitement Call of Duty gives. The “CODnapper” extracts them from their daily to-do lists and let them play Onslaught.
COD Ghosts “Onslaught” is actually the first DLC (downloadable content) for Call of Duty: Ghosts.It features new weapons such as the all new dual assault rifle and sniper rifle, and the next installment of Extinction.
Here’s the official video of the Call of Duty: Ghosts “Onslaught”:
Onslaught will be available first for the XBOX Live on January 28th. Other platforms are to follow after.
It’s good to see how Infinity Ward maintains the game and how it actively listens to the community. With this latest expansion, it will eventually add new gameplay strategies and overall enjoyment for COD players.
Are you getting this new expansion? I surely will! Let me know your thoughts about this DLC in the comments section below.
Tablets and other mobile devices that have the same functionality as a desktop are a mainstream in today’s current technological advancements.
Games that have been once played in large, full tower desktops can now be experienced in these mobile devices.
The developers from Activision took the initiative to create a mobile version of their award winning series Call of Duty and ported it into iOS. Watch this introductory video of the game:
Call of Duty Strike Team Trailer
“Call of Duty Strike Team trailer. Call of Duty: Strike Team delivers a new first-person and third-person Call of Duty experience for iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod…”
They took quite a while to build the game from the ground up as the peripherals and processing power of a mobile device is far less than its desktop counterpart.
Another challenge fot he developers is the limited screen size and handling of a mobile device. What they did is to have an alternative “drone” view of the game that can be switched back to a first person view.
This allows you to have a wider perspective of the map even in a very limited screen real estate.
You still maintain a total control of the character and moves like stabbing and the usual gun fight in a desktop setting is maintained in this mobile version.
The game is based on 3 campaign stories. Each of the campaign is broken up into sections to allow the players to get back to their game after saving.
They continued to the weapons included and he said “I don’t think people will be disappointed”. I surely hope this game delivers the gameplay as promised as it would be a breakthrough in mobile gaming for FPS.
There’s also a competitive side of the game which includes perks and score based challenges which you can send to your friends. You could win exp, tokens and points that can be useful in game.
I really like the graphics at 2: 19 where the character is using a gatling gun to neutralize enemies. I hope that this game would give a great gameplay experience to mobile gamers.
Treyarch and Infinity Ward had been the lead developers for Activision’s COD series for the past few years. But this year, speculations arise with Sledgehammer Games taking over the developer responsibilities for Call of Duty’s 2014 release.
Sledgehammer Games had been the co-developer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 but this year they will possibly go solo for the 2014 COD series.
The rumors came out after the Official protagonist’s character account Sgt. Frank Woods tweeted:
Here’s also a YouTube video from one fan sharing his thoughts regarding the rumors about Sledgehammer handling the next Call of Duty release:
He mentioned that Sledgehammer employees are actively spreading news about a new COD release from them, and this could probably be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 or Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. They are also posting job openings for weapons and vehicles artist and it is stated that the candidate must have experience using Adobe Photoshop to create hyper realistic features.
What’s your personal opinion about this? I know for sure that there wouldn’t be any zombies or alines mode if ever Sledgehammer takes this year’s release but I think they could make a good new series out of it.
