Call of Duty: Ghosts, the latest game developed by Infinity Ward, is now available worldwide for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, Activision Publishing announced. In Call of Duty: Ghosts, for the first time ever in the series, gamers play as the underdog against an enemy that has superior numbers and firepower. The story opens with a strike from the ODIN (Orbital Defense Initiative) space station, a weapons platform which was designed to protect us. An intense firefight in space turns the most powerful weapon ever devised against us, and the attack reshapes the world as we know it. As your home lies in ruins and everything around you is destroyed, you and your brother come across the remnants of a group of elite soldiers, shrouded in mystery, known only as the Ghosts. Together you must not only defend what’s left, but also take the fight to the enemy before they complete the destruction and end our way of life.
The multiplayer portion of the game invites players to customize their soldiers and squads as male or female characters for the first time, bringing over 20,000 possible character combinations. It features seven new multiplayer modes, 14 maps out of the box, a new Squads mode for up to six-player cooperative play, over 30 new weapons, including a new Marksman Rifle weapon class, and over 20 new Killstreaks.
Call of Duty Ghosts also introduces Extinction, a completely new co-op game mode featuring a unique blend of fast-paced survival gameplay, base defense, player customization and class levelling. Teamwork and communication are essential when playing Extinction, as your team faces an alien menace that has overrun an isolated Colorado town and the team must eliminate the threat via any means necessary.
