The lights are on
Call of Duty: Ghosts will be introducing a new Squads mode that gives players control over an AI team in a variety of new game scenarios. Through extensive customization options, players will tailor their team to fit specific roles.
The video goes through a number of different game types. Of particular interest is Wargame, which allows players to populate a six-person team with friends and/or AI teammates against an opposing computer-controlled squad.
Activision claims that the AI will function similarly to real players, and difficulty will scale with player skill. This seems like a great training ground.
Squad Assault brings an asymmetrical element into Call of Duty, as you and friends can take on AI squads belonging to other, offline players. Squad owners get to choose the map, and XP is earned even when offline.
For these and the other new modes (Squad vs Squad and Safeguard) check out the video below. Call of Duty: Ghosts is out on November 5 for Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are coming at the launch of those consoles. For more on Call of Duty: Ghosts, click on our October 2013 coverage hub below.
