Call of Duty is making another setting change for its leap into the next generation. The series has evolved from a World War II shooter into a modern warfare shooter before Black Ops II finally closed out the console generation and a near-future sci-fi shooter.
Times have changed and Call of Duty is jumping into the post-apocalypse in Call of Duty: Ghosts. Returning to the game is the same intense action driven storytelling you’ve come to know and maybe love from the series, only this time, the stakes are much bigger. America has collapsed and a very small resistance force is fighting to keep her lofty goals afloat in this forsaken alternate future.
Infinity Ward has tapped Oscar-winning Hollywood screenwriter Stephen Gaghan to pen this new chapter in the series.
The reveal trailer shown yesterday at the Xbox One reveal conference also displayed the game’s newest feature: K9 companions! Each customizable character will be granted a dog to help uncover traps, attack enemy units and hopefully have a loving buddy to snuggle up with when the emotional pressure of this future gone awry is just too much to handle alone.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will be available on the PC, Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 5th before jumping into the next-generation on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 whenever those consoles drop.
