Earlier this afternoon Activision hosted a pre-E3 livestream of their upcoming title ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’. The video featured interviews, insights into the development and a lot of gameplay for fans to enjoy. If you missed the event, you can watch below or read about right here.
Activision decided to begin E3 early this year and for the first time the publisher held a live telecast for fans around the world. It was the first time that fans could get an uninterrupted look at new gameplay from Call of Duty: Ghosts.
The game will feature an all-new world, new story, new characters and new experiences, all powered by a new, next-gen engine. Activision calls the game, “a stunning leap forward for the mega-hit franchise, but also showcases what’s possible on next generation consoles”. The video was hosted by Spike TV’s Geoff Keighley and Internet personality iJustine, and fans were treated to a live 30-minute broadcast titled “Call of Duty: Ghosts All Access”.
In the video below you can go behind the scenes with Activision’s studio Infinity Ward, for a look at the upcoming title two days before the start of 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 Expo).
“So, since our fans can’t come to E3, we’re bringing E3 to them. This year we’re making sure the Call of Duty community is first in line to see Call of Duty: Ghosts as we kick-off what’s going to be a historic week.”
“Every year our team puts on an amazing production to showcase our games at E3, a spectacle that delivers an epic, immersive experience that takes your breath away. Yet all our fans aren’t able to be here and share in the moment,” said Activision Publishing CEO, Eric Hirshberg. “So, since our fans can’t come to E3, we’re bringing E3 to them. This year we’re making sure the Call of Duty community is first in line to see Call of Duty: Ghosts as we kick-off what’s going to be a historic week.”
Also featured in the video was the level “Into the Deep,” a new underwater mission that is featured in the game. Also featured was “No Man’s Land,” a new location after a “catastrophic event”, and gamer finally got their first peek at Riley, the new canine character in Call of Duty: Ghosts. The televised special, which was broadcast live on television on DirecTV, on consoles and on popular online outlets around the world, offered viewers a sneak peek at the gameplay a full two days before the industry commences its annual E3 conference. The global telecast also featured a series of interviews with members of the Infinity Ward development team, as well as Academy Award® winning writer Stephen Gaghan, who is penning the script for the new title.
At E3 Activision will also have a new video wall, built by Activision for show attendees on-site at E3, which you can also see in the video. Call of Duty’s “Show Mode” experience also features state-of-the-art visual/sound effects, controlled pyrotechnics, wind, smoke and low-lying fog to highlight original Call of Duty content, providing a truly unique experience for attendees at the show.
Activision states that Call of Duty: Ghosts “sets a new bar of visual fidelity and near photorealism without sacrificing any performance, maintaining the hallmark of 60 frames per second—on every platform—to provide that signature Call of Duty smoothness and gameplay”.
“Our new tech is allowing us to deliver an absolutely stunning next generation Call of Duty experience on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but that’s not all. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will reap the benefits of our new tech as well, which we believe will make this the most striking Call of Duty game ever created, regardless of what platform our fans choose,” said Infinity Ward, executive producer, Mark Rubin.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will release on Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PS3 computer entertainment system and PC on November 5. Call of Duty: Ghosts will also release on the Xbox One and the PS4. Mmore information on release dates, pricing and images can be found on sites like Amazon below.
