As part of Xbox’s console announcement today (read Matt’s recap here), Microsoft introduced a couple of games that will be featured this fall as part of the Xbox One experience. One of the most highly anticipated games is Infinity Ward’s follow-up to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, a wholly new Call of Duty video game featuring a new story and characters called Call of Duty: Ghosts. The full reveal trailer for Ghosts is now online, and it’s very, very promising. The video game was written by Oscar-winning Traffic and Syriana scribe Stephen Gaghan and takes place in the near future in which America’s forces have been nearly obliterated. The protagonist is part of the resistance, a ragtag team made up of former members from various armed forces services such as Navy SEALs and Marines. I love the underdog approach here and Gaghan’s involvement is incredibly promising. Also, mo-cap dogs!
Hit the jump to watch the reveal trailer along with a behind-the-scenes look at the game’s enhancements. Call of Duty: Ghosts will be available on November 5th.
Here’s a description of Call of Duty: Ghosts:
The franchise that has defined a generation of gaming is set to raise the bar once again with the all-new Call of Duty®: Ghosts. Published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward, the studio that created the original Call of Duty and the critically-acclaimed Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® series, Call of Duty: Ghosts ushers in the next generation of the franchise, delivering a riveting all-new gameplay experience built on an entirely new story, setting and cast, all powered by a new next-generation Call of Duty engine.
