Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer is about to get more interesting with the new four-player co-op mode Extinction.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is that game we knew was going to be on the Xbox One since the day it was officially announced in May, ironically not exclusive to the console. In fact, recent developments have shown that Call of Duty: Ghosts is going to run at a higher resolution on the PS4 than it will on the Xbox One.
This could be a deciding factor in the next gen console war as Call of Duty: Ghosts will be expected to run at 1080p on PlayStation 4, while only running at 720p on Xbox One. It may be the proof we needed that the PlayStation 4 is indeed more powerful, as previously reported by The Inquisitr.
Of course, this proof concerning the multiplayer friendly Call of Duty: Ghosts is not yet conclusive, since the third-party insider who discovered it is keeping mum on the subject, saying that Microsoft will disclose the details in their own time. For those of us following the console war from the start, this comes at little surprise. Microsoft kept a lid on rumors even after the media had spilled them, refusing to confirm anything until they were ready.
Back on the subject of Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer, a new four-player co-op mode called Extinction has been announced, which when compared with the capabilities promised in Battlefield 4, isn’t that impressive. However, in the same vein as the zombies in previous iterations, Extinction has the gamers up against a race of aliens set to take over the planet.
In this case, Call of Duty: Ghosts appears to be taking visual queues from previous killer IPs like Prototype and StarCraft 2, adding a solo military note to the whole thing from the perspective of a team of four soldiers. The video showcases what looks like a typical Zerg rush in StarCraft 2 as soldiers prepare to fight for their lives.
Through the trailer for the Extinction four-player co-op mode, we hear the narrator telling us that this is not the world we remember, but it’s our home and these aliens are not welcome. All storytelling aside, this may be the first time a first person shooter has ever taken an alien invasion so seriously.
While Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer might run better on the PlayStation 4 than on the Xbox One, the true test of the game remains how much fun we’ll have when we get to play it less than a month from now.
