E3 2013: Call of Duty Ghosts "Federation Day" Demo

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 16 comments

Part of Activision's "booth tour" during E3 2013 was Call of Duty: Ghosts, developed by Infinity Ward and slated for Windows PC, both Xbox consoles, both PlayStation consoles and the Wii U on November 5, 2013. The company showcased the upcoming shooter with three gameplay demos, two of which are shown below. The third demo, called Federation Day, was only shown to the press, and involved infiltrating an enemy-filled skyscraper in Venezuela.

The demo opened up with the player and his team on the rooftop of an extremely tall skyscraper. Fireworks lit up the sky, dazzling a crowd down below on the street as the player set up zip-line launchers. Once that was accomplished, the team took aim of another skyscraper across the street, fired, and then began to slide across the night air.

Before they reached the other side, the team detached their lines from the first building, allowing them to dangle across the glass of the second enemy building. They then began to slowly descend, taking out enemies with single shots through the glass. Eventually they paused their decent, cut circles into the glass, and entered the building.

The room they entered appeared to be full of servers. The object, it seemed, was to plant bombs and haul ass back out. A few moments later their objective was complete and the team was back out on the side of the skyscraper, continuing their descent down to the street. The player eventually reached a balcony patrolled by an enemy, detached from his rappelling wire, and killed the unsuspecting patrolling opponent with a knife to the throat.

But the player wasn't stealthy enough, and the dead enemy's comrades ran out to the balcony to investigate the noise. The action suddenly went into slow motion as the player ripped the knife out of the first enemy, threw it into the head of the second enemy and shot the other.

At this point the demo suddenly jumped forward in time. Something had undoubtedly gone wrong, as the building was on fire and getting ready to topple over. The player began to slide down an angled floor, fighting both sliding debris and furniture along with gun-toting bad guys. He was shooting left and right, struggling to stay alive, but the player's doom was imminent: he was heading towards a window and would undoubtedly fall out and plunge to the street below.

And that's what happened: he crashed through the window, but the demo ended while the player entered the night air, leaving us to wonder how he will survive the fall. Thanks for that, Activision.

    comparing COD and BF is like comparing Fallout 3 and Bioshock. Yer they are fps but also completely different. So maybe compare this COD to BLOPS2 not BF4, just a thought ><

    Looks like a B grade movie. It would be more of a video game if you didn't follow NPCs through scripted events. More hand holding plz. Imagine if Mario Bros. had you playing as Luigi, following Mario through the levels. *Yawn*

    Wow... after finally seeing gameplay videos I have to say, this is a game I will never pay more than $5 for. BF4 for me please.

    These shots look awesome, can't wait to play the single player campaign. I like the idea of an attack dog.

    they know how to make a good story, i'd give them that.
    MP, yes nice map design, i like it personally. but the map is just too small, and they have a faster pace than bf3 (which makes the map even smaller), you can reach the other end of the map just like that.

    and yes, i like bf3 better, cheaper game, vehicles... a lot of them, physics, better team play

    personally i dont buy cod/bf3 for single player, thats just a bonus for me. in fact, i only played coop and multi player, single player, no.

    how long is single player? 6hrs? compared to hundreds of hours of MP, so it's bf3 for me, esp with cod's no-dedicated server (last time i looked), not wasting my money on them. and with a $20+ price difference (from where i am), ill get bf4 over this

    honestly, the game doesn't look bad, multiplayer is where its at, and single player is a big stupid action movie, which is fun to play through if you like those movies, sadly they always feel like you are playing the side kick instead of the main guy...

    multiplayer... i despise vehicle combat, i hate it more than any one person can imagine. i hate driveing, i hate car to car combat, i just do not like it in games that werent 100% about being in the car (think twisted metal) i love the close quarters battlefield gameplay and maps, but i SO hate that they only gave you what... 8 maps at launch, and the close quarters was what 10-15$ 3-4 map dlc...

    what i really want is a game like unreal with weapon progression like a battlefield or a COD, but because that is a pipe dream... i have to give it to cod just because of personal taste and they give me more of what i like up front, apposed to battlefield.

    if either game supported modding, that would be the clear winner, but they dont, because of map packs.

    yup mw2 didn't have dedi server, i wasted my money on that game. couldn't play because of high latency.

    not the latest, but somewhere (a few games behind), there wasn;'t a dedicated server i believe (besides mw2), they do have dedi server BUT it's unranked, so no go for me. i may be wrong though
