Last week TheSixthAxis was invited to a behind closed doors demo of the new Call of Duty, Ghosts. We were shown sections of three different levels, one of which was exclusive to E3 (at least for now).
Whilst it looked sharp enough, one of the things that stood out (in the first level shown) was the dog control – yep, you can control Riley. Our demonstrator (we didn’t actually get to play the game) explained that this was due to a fancy chip in the dog’s collar, but likely translates to just pushing left and right on the analog stick.
Regardless, the same demo – pretty much beat for beat – was also shown on American TV last night on the Jimmy Fallon show. The clip is below.
The other two levels we saw at E3 (seriously, the one above plays out almost identically, right down to the way Riley jumps in through the window and the resulting slow-mo exploding door) included an underwater stealthy section and a night-time raid of a data centre, which involved lots of climbing down a big building really slowly.
Ghosts is out later this year, across current and next gen platforms. The new engine for the game boasts some cool tessellation tech, which should in theory mean that even close up the models look rounded and rich.
And a dog.
