Call of Duty: Ghosts
Release Date: November 5, 2013 | Activision| ESRB: M for Mature| Xbox 360, Wii U, PS3
The franchise that revolutionized gaming does it again, relaunching with a new experience designed to blow away everything you know about Call of Duty. COD: Ghosts puts you up against the greatest odds you’ve faced in any COD campaign.
This time you’re hopelessly outnumbered and outgunned in a battle against a newly forged global superpower. Your squad, the Ghosts, is the last remnant of a once-elite unit that protected a great nation – one that’s barely hanging on after a catastrophic event.
Your first goal is pure survival. If you can manage that, you’ll fight to stop your home from being wiped entirely off the map in an intensely personal COD story built on an all-new engine that delivers a remarkable 60 frames per second.
