A Ghost of a Pre-Order Bonus
Activision have announced the obligatory pre-order bonus for the upcoming Call of Doggy: Woof Woof AWOO! A collapsing skyscraper. No, no, don't be silly! Not a real one, or even a toy to keep your RC car company. Nay, rather, a map (for the multiplayer obviously) set inside a collapsing skyscraper.
"The brand-new Call of Duty: Ghosts' multiplayer map Free Fall drops you into a shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse. Sideways staircases climb into the night sky, elevator shafts run along the ground, and what were once windows now form a terrifying glass floor, hundreds of feet above the city streets. Free Fall's close-quarters combat and frenetic action are thrown into overdrive as the ruined skyscraper continues to fall throughout the match, an example of Call of Duty: Ghosts' new dynamic multiplayer events. With every drop, the accompanying shockwaves cause further destruction, disrupting sightlines and constantly evolving paths and chokepoints as the map changes in real-time."
Okay, I gotta' say, much as I'm not a fan of the series (though I don't hate on it like most people, it's just not my thing) that sounds really bloody cool! It reminds me, actually, a lot of what Crytek said would be included in Crysis 2. Only, this time it will actually be included as more than just a brief cinematic towards the end of the game. Hey, guys, when Call of Duty are delivering something more impressive than you are, maybe it's time to take a long hard look in the mirror.
Anyway, Ghosts is due to arrive this November, and has suddenly made itself a lot more interesting.
