The lights are on
It's refreshing to know that even Infinity Ward's executive producer Mark Rubin doesn't understand how Call of Duty has acquired such a gigantic player-base. Trying to add something new to the series and a stab in the dark at giving the silent majority of players something they might want, Call of Duty: Ghosts is offering extensive player customization options in multiplayer. We spoke with Rubin about this addition to the series and his attempts to better understand the audience that plays his team's games.
Watch the video interview below to hear Rubin talk about the power of customization, courting mass audiences, and how MMOs and Street Fighter have shaped Call of Duty.

This game looks like an expansion to Black Ops 2.
I'm glad they're finally doing this. If it's anything like Halo Reach at least, it has no excuse not to be epic.
After all these little features they're adding it sound really tempting to get but when I see the gameplay in action I realise it's just the same thing with people running and bouncing around pulling off kills that shouldn't happen.
Also, did he say people play for the social aspect, what kinda person likes playing with immature brats screaming and insulting you every time they get killed?
Fact is, they should have done the whole character customization a longgggggg time ago. Females models in game? Again should be old news. Alot of addition's should have been made 3 games ago to push the series forward. Oh! As far as vocal community? WTF?!? COD players are very vocal (not just multiplayer either lol) about exactly what they want now and where they would like the series head in the future. All the freaks have to do is actually listen to their own official forums! Players are always leaving feed back and "YES" there are alot of good ideas floating around from people who play everyday just ripe for the picking. Heck, I have played every COD game since MW4, putting 700 hours on average on each, but I also play bout every freaking type and gender of game one can think of on all the systems currant and past. So I definitely don't fit his odd idea of a COD player and I know I am not alone. I'm not even getting the game lol (skipping for my preferred FPS BF4), but still care enough bout the series to say my peace. I'm looking forward to the next one which I think will be alot more focused on using the next gen console power to hopefully do something fresh.
