As free as the wind blows
When they're not releasing vague teaser images of forlorn looking soldiers, the men and women behind the Call of Duty series are creating seasons worth of DLC packs, all with appropriately silly names. And the most recent title in the monolithic franchise is no excepti

Masked movie icon the Predator is set to stalk the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 next month, as Activision has attached an 8th May release date to the ‘Devastation’ expansion for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Already available on Microsoft platforms due to the Redmond-based firm’s exclusivity arrangement, the care package also comprises...
Wednesday12th Mar 2014
Activision has taken aim at the European PlayStation Store, launching a plethora of discounts on the perennial Call of Duty franchise. Call us cynical, but we've got a pretty strong suspicion that this sale is almost definitely a direct response to the recent release of critical darling Titanfall. In any case, the full list of savings is...

Get ducky with it
In the midst of all of the Titanfall love, Activision is attempting to spice up Call of Duty: Ghosts with a handful of new item customisation packs. Each add-on includes a decal theme that can be applied to your weapons, player card, reticule, and profile background. As of now, only four of these purrfect packs have been announced,...

Hallowe'en comes early
We recently learned the absurdly banal names of Call of Duty: Ghosts' four sets of DLC, and now we have a rough date for the first pack, Onslaught. The official Infinity Ward Instagram posted a creepy clip showing off some new arenas as well as a particularly threatening looking axe. The video is set to the theme from

You can probably guess
Don’t worry if you’ve exhausted all of Call of Duty: Ghosts’ on-board maps, as there’ll be plenty to sink your teeth into over the coming months.

There’s no doubt that this week’s biggest deployment comes draped in a big white sheet. Call of Duty: Ghosts has secured a day-one digital release on the North American PlayStation Store, and is available in two packages. The Hardened Bundle – which costs a whopping $119.99 – includes the game, a bonus map, and Season Pass. Less...
There may be an explanation
Assuming that you give a hoot about the antics in Infinity Ward’s recently released Call of Duty: Ghosts, you may want to close this window now, as there’s a chance that there may be a spoiler or two enclosed within. Have you pushed your browser’s dependable ‘back’ button, yet? Alright, we’re guessing that...

As the latest entry in the seemingly unstoppable Call of Duty franchise exploded onto store shelves today, so too did our very first PlayStation 4 review. But with the title set to deploy on both current generation and next generation systems, we figured that we should summarise some of the key differences between the two releases...

Call of Duty has always been a little bit over-the-top, but ever since Treyarch opted to add zombies to its World War II spin-off, the franchise has been slowly getting stranger. The upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts, though, is opting to dial up the weirdness to dizzying new heights, augmenting a Resistance-esque co-op mode that will...

Current generation counterpart getting some love, too
Microsoft’s famous moneyhats are being spent in strange places these days. Alright, maybe we’re being a teensy bit unfair assuming that the Redmond-based manufacturer is responsible for Infinity Ward’s caginess regarding dedicated server support in the non-Xbox versions of Call of Duty:...

No way to game the system
Assuming that you have about as much patience as a Venus flytrap, you’ll be able to buy some of this year’s biggest PlayStation 3 games safe in the knowledge that it will only cost you $9.99/£9.99 to upgrade to the PlayStation 4 version. However, as part of a detailed explanation on the PlayStation Blog, Sony clarified...

Explosive single player trailer has it all
Fresh from Activision and Infinity Ward comes this latest trailer for Call of Duty: Ghosts, which is all about the single player campaign.

You'll also be able to play as a woman
Activision’s come up with a cunning solution for the pesky next generation transition: allow you to transfer your profiles between systems. The multiplayer component of Call of Duty: Ghosts will let you move your data between the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 with ease. You won’t, however, be able to...

Firm footing is not guaranteed in Call of Duty: Ghosts’ bonus ‘Free Fall’ map. The dilapidated arena – available alongside pre-orders for the impending first-person shooter – will drop you “into a shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse”. As you play, the building will crumble in real-time, showcasing one of the...

Looks a bit woof
Jimmy Fallon’s video game week has continued with a brief look at Call of Duty: Ghosts. This is the same footage that was shown at E3, in which you get to take control of dog Riley via a remote video link. There are some pretty cool ideas on display – we especially like the way that you can bark to bring guards out into the...

Looks like Microsoft doesn’t have time to squeeze Call of Duty: Ghosts into its press conference this year, as Activision has deployed some brand new footage from the upcoming sequel's campaign.
