It is official. Call of Duty: Ghosts swaps out zombies in favor of aliens. The idea was hinted at for a while. Screenshots were leaked showing some of the aliens. Now, it’s for real. Activision has confirmed it. The Extinction mode will set Call of Duty fans against a whole new enemy.
The official Call of Duty: Ghosts aliens announcement comes from an Extinction trailer. It shows some footage of the various alien creatures and hives, while soldiers march around looking tough and shooting things. Here is is, in case you’d like to watch.
I think it’s especially cool that the trailer is narrated by a female soldier. You don’t usually see that with Call of Duty media, so kudos.
Anyways, back to Call of Duty: Ghosts‘ Extinction. It is a supplemental mode for 1-4 players. If your friends join you, it becomes a cooperative affair. The goal is to stay alive against the aliens, while defeating them and wiping out their hives. Take Earth back to win. You’ll get trophies for doing it, so it’s even a pride kind of thing.
All I can think of when I see this Call of Duty: Ghosts Extinction mode announcement is that finally, we’re going to get the first-person, alien shooting experience we’ve been waiting for. You know, the one that Aliens: Colonial Marines was supposed to provide. Better late than never, and at least we know Infinity Ward is capable of always making a pretty tight FPS.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is just about one week away. On November 5, 2013, the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and Windows PC versions will be released. PS4 and Xbox One versions will follow shortly after. No matter which system you get it for, it’ll be $59.99. While it would be tempting to get a copy for your new PS4 or Xbox One, I’d recommend getting it for an established console instead, since multiplayer is such a huge part of the Call of Duty experience.
