Fresh Call of Duty: Ghosts Multiplayer Details

Posted on August 22, 2013 AT 02:08am

Activision has revealed a few new details regarding Call of Duty: Ghosts‘ multiplayer component at Gamescom.

Ghosts will allow players to create a brand new soldier from scratch and offers over 20,000 customization options. This time round there are a total of 35 perks, with a maximum of eight that can be equipped at any one time. Each of these perks will cost between one and five points to equip. They are split into seven categories:

  • Speed
  • Handling
  • Stealth
  • Awareness
  • Resistance
  • Equipment
  • Elite

The publisher also detailed the game’s Strike Packages, which are once again split into the three categories of Assault, Support, and Specialist:

  • Assault: Based on consecutive enemy kills and resets on death. New streak rewards are as follows:
  • Sat Com – Use satellite communications to spy on enemy movement.
  • Guard Dog – Your combat dog will warn you of enemies approaching, and attack when needed.
  • Maniac – Seek help from a knife wielding juggernaut, where a high-speed melee attack is in place of guns.
  • Support: Enemy kills do not reset when the player dies. New streak rewards are as follows:
  • Night Owl: Advanced drone that detects enemies, and offers protection from explosions.
  • MAAWS: Laser guides will guide missiles from the free-fire rocket launcher.
  • Helo Scout: Hop on a helicopter and provide aerial sniper support
  • Specialist: More consecutive kills will earn you more perks.

Ghosts will also feature seven new game modes, three of which are detailed below:

  • Search and Rescue: Similar to Search and Destroy, however this time teammates can revive each other.
  • Cranked: Kills provide new abilities, but starts a countdown clock. Kill again before the timer runs out, or risk exploding.
  • Blitz: Breach the enemy goal line, while defending your own. A similar mode to Capture the Flag.
