Activision has revealed pre-ordering Call of Duty: Ghosts at selected retailers will offer a bonus downloadable multiplayer map, called Free Fall.
Free Fall features new dynamic map mechanics, changing the maps environment as matches progress. Call of Duty: Ghosts will feature an array of new dynamic map events, with Activision releasing details of how these events will effect Free Fall.
“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,” said Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin “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 will release November 5 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It will also release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, later this year.
