'Extinction Mode' Among The Rumours Trickling From Call Of Duty: Ghosts

'Extinction Mode' Among the Rumours Trickling From Call of Duty: Ghosts

With about a week to go before the latest Call of Duty hits shelves, this is high season for pre-release leaks from those who managed to cajole an early retail copy out of someone. Did you know Call of Duty: Ghosts is on two discs for the Xbox 360? Yeah, well, neither did I. There's other stuff coming out, too.

Courtesy of CharlieIntel.com, who have been good for this kind of stuff in years past, this is what's known:

• The game is on two discs for the Xbox 360. Considering the PC installation specs call for a 40GB installation, this shouldn't be that big of a shock.

• The names of all 14 multiplayer maps are now known. With the exception of "Prison Break," each one sounds like a metal band's debut album.

Some mode called "Extinction" (above) is a feature of the game, apparently. The loading screen depicts some alien-looking bastard, so one must wonder if this replaces Zombies. Word is that you unlock "Extinction" after completing the first five missions of the singleplayer campaign.

I've pinged an Activision rep but, if they wanted to announce these things, they probably would have done so already. Call of Duty: Ghosts releases worldwide on Nov. 5

    Extinction mode has definitely peaked my interests! Regardless, I was getting this as a Day One Xbone purchase anyway.

    zombies was my only reason for the 2 blops games. Havent bothered with MW since the first but now im definitely curious

    The only thing that interests me about this is the 40GB install. I'm gonna need me a new harddrive soon to keep up with the new games

    When Treyarch makes a fun little new gametype, it comes off as genuine. When Infinity Ward does, it just comes off as trying too hard.

    Did anyone ever get to the bottom of the 720p/ 1080p Xbone rumour?

    It seems like it would be the easiest thing in the world to get an answer on. The game is out in a few weeks and Kotaku posted this story http://www.kotaku.com.au/2013/10/theres-a-rumour-that-the-next-call-of-duty-runs-at-1080p-on-ps4-and-720p-on-xbox-one/ last week and then never followed it up from what I can see.

    Surely if it’s a pretty freaking simple yes/no answer. The games probably already gone to print and given that it’s out in less than a month it’s not going to change now!
    If you asked them those silly questions then that one would probably be a good one to include.

      IW has not come out and provided an answer yet, this is still an ongoing question.

        Surely that’s your answer then.

        That’s some serious BS on IW’s behalf though. I’m normally the last person to get genuinely angry at a development studio (normally because it’s a creative decision), but if two things really piss me off its developers intentionally withholding information to scam pre-orders and terrible DLC.
        IW pretending that they can’t answer what resolution their game runs at a month from its release is most certainly the former.

        I’d love to see more websites put their foot down and refuse to publish stories and other positive (non-paid) media about games when companies do things like this.

    As long as it does not have the repeditive 'boarding up of windows' and have more structure with co-op I'll be happy :)
