Activision and Infinity Ward has today revealed that the third DLC Pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts will be launching on June 3rd for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Titled, Invasion, the latest DLC delivers four new multiplayer maps from unique locales around the world, each with hidden secrets and unique Field Orders. Invasion also includes Episode 3: Awakening, the next chapter in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative taking players deep into an alien underworld to discover the truth behind the Cryptid attack.
Invasion’s four new small-to-medium-sized multiplayer maps feature the fast-paced gameplay Call of Duty fans crave, each one donning a distinct look, feel and unique killstreak. “Departed” is a medium-sized map set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration. The colorfully decorated streets, vendor carts and storefronts provide ample cover for run-and-gunners, and players that complete the map’s unique Field Order will unlock the Death Mariachi killstreak. Armed with dual-wielding pistols, the Death Mariachi settles scores, with each kill turning enemy players into another member of the band, and a temporary squad mate.
“Pharaoh” is the abandoned archeological site of an ancient Egyptian palace. Players will have to be on the lookout for collapsing monuments and urns full of flesh-eating scarabs, among other surprises in this multi-level map. Inside the palace, gamers will battle through multiple chambers ideal for close-quarters combat and short-range weapons, all under the watchful eye of Anubis, the half-jackal/half-human, protector of the dead, who will handsomely reward players who unlock this map’s Field Order.
Invasion’s third map, “Mutiny,” transports players to a remote Caribbean island harboring an eerie pirate hideout complete with abandoned trading posts and prison cells. Speed and stealth are a must as players navigate the narrow and » Continue Reading.
What do you get when you combine a state of the art 3D printer with an Assault Rifle? The next weapon to feature in the latest Call of Duty title set for release on November 4th 2014 – Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
As part of GameInformer’s exceptional coverage of the Advanced Warfare from Sledgehammer Games, it has been revealed that one of the futuristic weapons in the year 2054 timeframe (I’d be 74 by then) is a rifle that can print its own ammunition within the weapons chamber!
Other technology revealed includes a plasma rifle, a hoverbike, vertical takeoff aircraft, and an exo suit that will increase player speed, strength and jump height on the battlefield.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare could be the kick up the arse for the franchise it needs from new blood Sledgehammer Games. The past two titles from both Infinity Ward and Treyarch failed to meet the expectations despite strong sales with Black Ops 2 and Ghosts, but this years Advanced Warfare does appear promising based on more information revealed in the June edition of GameInformer.

In development at Sledgehammer Games for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. A separate studio to be named later is working on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. There’s no word on Wii U. The game runs on a new and unspecified game engine. The story opens with a catastrophic event that Sledgehammer Games cofounder Michael Condrey describes as “like a global 9/11.” There’s little more to go on, but major cities on multiple continents are affected by some kind of terrorism perpetrated by a terrorist organization called KVA. It is set in 2054. You play a character named Private Mitchell, who is voiced by prolific voice actor Troy Baker. You may know Baker for his recent roles in The Last of Us (Joel), BioShock Infinite (Booker), and Batman: Arkham Origins (The Joker). Mitchell only speaks during cutscenes; never during gameplay. Mitchell starts Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare as a Marine, who is squadmates with Will Irons, the son of Private Military Company Atlas Corporation CEO Jonathan Irons (played by Kevin Spacey). After their tour of duty is done, the elder Irons asks Mitchell if he wants to leave the Marines to join his father’s company. Mitchell says yes and is outfitted with an “EXO” » Continue Reading.

It does seem the fashionable thing now in gaming is to have your newest game ‘Leaked’ ahead of the official announcement date. Sadly, that happened less then twelve hours after Activision released a teaser poster suggesting it was going to announce its latest Call of Duty game this Sunday on May 4th. However, this morning multiple sites had not only seen leaked information about the name and setting of the game, but the trailer itself was leaked.
Moments ago Activision, with really no other choice, has now officially released the trailer ahead of plans which you can see above. Forgotten is the idea of ‘Modern Warfare’ and instead the future has fully been embraced with cloaking soldiers and hover bikes showcased in the trailer. Not only that, but once again Call of Duty has called on the services of Hollywood and have cast Kevin Spacey in the game. Fans of his Netflix show ‘House of Cards’ will know that his character, Frank Underwood, can often be seen playing Call of Duty to relax after a long day of running America from the shadows.
The Trailer shows gameplay captured from the Xbox One.
There is no denying that the past two games in the Call of Duty franchise, “Black Ops II” and “Ghosts” have been not quite up to the standards of their predecessors in CoD history, and for 2014 it looks like something new is brewing! A new era that hopefully delivers an intense and engaging experience for our new shiny next-gen consoles is soon to be unveiled.
The official CallofDuty.com website is displaying a countdown timer until May 4th 2014 at 10am UK time; that’s not all that long to wait, but like previous years could be a campaign tease and name reveal with more multiplayer details to be announced closer to E3 (but before the end of May).
Is this the Modern Warfare prequel that focusses on a major character which has been rumoured in the past, or is this “Modern Warfare 4″ which Billy Murray discussed on a plane – or something new altogether with Sledgehammer Games securing their own story and individual take on the Call of Duty gaming phenomenon with a Future Warfare theme?
GameInformer has teased an image too today as shown below and is the first screenshot taken from within the game. More to be revealed in their June issue.
When official announcements are in – we’ll keep you posted.
