Call of Duty: Ghosts will have collapsing buildings too!
Activision has announced a new downloadable map called Free Fall, available to those who wish to pre-order Call of Duty Ghosts. The map will come included with the game at launch in participating retailers.
Free Fall will feature dynamic map events which will have players drop down in a collapsing skyscraper.
Free Fall drops players into a shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse. Sideways staircases climb into the night sky, elevator shafts run along the ground, and what were once windows now form a terrifying glass floor, hundreds of feet above the city streets. Free Fall’s close-quarters combat and frenetic action are then thrown into overdrive as the ruined skyscraper continues to fall throughout the match. With every drop, the accompanying shockwaves cause further destruction, disrupting sightlines and constantly evolving paths and chokepoints as the map changes in real-time.
"Dynamic map events change the way players approach the game, and Free Fall does a great job illustrating this new mechanic,” executive producer Mark Rubin said in a press release. “As the match progresses, the geometry of the world continues to change and players need to adjust on the fly or else. It’s a really fun new feature that adds layers of strategy and constantly evolving gameplay options for players. And this is just one of the many new approaches we’re putting into Ghosts’ multiplayer across the board. There’s so much more that we look forward to sharing in the weeks to come."
Call of Duty Ghosts is set to launch on November 5 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. It will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.
