It’s official: the next iteration of Activision’s Call of Duty series is nigh, and far from being just another entry into the Modern Warfare series, it’s an all-new game with new characters, new setting, and even a new engine. Activision is calling it a “leap forward” for the franchise.
You can preorder your copy of “Call of Duty: Ghosts” for Xbox, PS3, or PC starting today at a variety of retail outlets worldwide, and there will be some first looks available on May 21st (at 10am PDT) on Xbox.com, Xbox LIVE, and SPIKE TV.
For now, enjoy this teaser trailer:
The video shows a series of menacing masked warriors plucked from different times and cultures in history with a voice overdub that expounds on the many reasons why warriors have historically worn masks. It ends with what looks like special forces soldiers donning masks “to protect us all”.
We’re not sure we want to be protected by these guys, but we definitely want to pretend to be them in a video game.
