This is one of the biggest overhaul’s in the game by a long shot as it includes a whole range of upgrades with Things such as Sub-D, Displacement Mapping, Real-Time Lighting, and Dual-Rendering. This new tech allows infinity ward to build the most visceral game-play experience you’ve ever seen. However the best thing about the new engine is it allows you to play at 60 frames-per-second across all platforms!
Dynamic map events
Like black ops 2, ghosts will include player triggered events but on a whole new level, allowing you new ways to play and interact with the environments in a meaningful way. One of the best examples of this is taken from the multiplayer trailer where a player shoots a gas station with an RPG, which causes the whole building to collapse therefore causing the landscape can shift and require new tactics and strategies. Although this may sound great it is no where near matching the dynamic map events that are greatly acheived in battlefield 3
As seen in the multiplier footage, Infinity ward have added 3 new tactical movements;
- A contextual lean system which allows you to lean around obstacles without adding button combinations.
- A mantling system allowing the player to fluidly move over objects, while not losing momentum.
- Knee slides that naturally transition from sprinting to crouch to prone.
These have been seen in games long before but never like we have seen today with smooth, self adjusting elements that the player will proberly not notice after a few plays.
Infinity ward have completely revamped their audio design including a brand new ADSR-based reverb system, reactive emitters and location battle chatter which is bound to immerse the player even more into the game. This new system is a step up from their previous audio design in both MW3 and BO2
With the new Create-a-soldier system you don’t just “Create-a-class” you fully customize your soldier(s) From the head, body type, head-gear, equipment and even gender Infinity ward have given you over 20,000 possible combinations meaning not one soilder will be the same. What will be interesting to see is what players will come up with and will be seeing crazy loadouts with fat women with party hats on?
The New perks system is amazing compared to previous versions of call of duty. Not only have they included more perks than ever, they have given each perk a value from 1 to 5, 8 being the maximum you can equiped at once. This way the more over powered perks will take up more slots, this will probably be used to counteract the use of perks such as ghost meaning less people using it unless they want to sacrificial something else . Just like Black ops 2, if you choose to get rid of your secondary weapon you could gain up to 11 perks at once.
Kill streaks (Strike Chain)
Once again we see an addition of over 20 new Kill streaks, split up into the 3 tier system; Assault Strike Package, Support Strike Package and Specialist Strike Package. These new streaks will range from Juggernaut Maniac to Helo-Scout. Check out our full list of kill streaks for call of duty ghosts multiplayer
If your one of those people that love to have a guy they can always rely on in a tough situation then squads may be the next best thing for you. With Infinity wards vastly improved AI and mechanics you can have a whole squad to maintain and prestige whilst you play in their brand new game mode built especially for this purpose.
