The other big first-person shooter franchise being shown off at E3 2013, Call of Duty, also happens to be the undefeated king of the genre. Battlefield 3 tried to take a run at the crown when it came out—and many were convinced it would take COD out—but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 once again proved emphatically that the throne is still theirs to sit. Now Battlefield 4 is on the way, and it has Call of Duty: Ghosts in its sights.
It’s an interesting year for Call of Duty, as it’s Infinity Ward’s turn to take the wheel but they are not making the fourth installment in the Modern Warfare series as many expected. Instead it’s Ghosts, and a chance to try something new. Though judging by these new gameplay demos, it’s still the Call of Duty game you’d expect it to be. That said, they have brought in Oscar-winning filmmaker Stephen Gaghan to help with the story, so it could surprise some people in the end.
You can check out two new gameplay demos for Call of Duty: Ghosts below now, one of which shows how you can use your new canine companion, and the other shows some underwater action.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will be released on November 5, 2013, and can currently be pre-ordered on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, with next-gen console versions coming eventually.
