The lights are on
Activision's pre-E3 special revealed new details on the game, including more on your canine companion.
The demo started off with the Into the Deep underwater level running on next-gen hardware, some of the footage of which we've seen before. You and another swimmer take on some guards and pilot an underwater missile into an enemy vessel before encountering hostile swimmers. The level seems to occur in the waters around South America/Antarctica, and there are numerous levels in the map that take place on or around the continent.
Ghosts starts out with a cataclysmic event that takes out the U.S. government and hits several targets within our nation. As the game's name implies, you're relatively on your own in the aftermath; without the backup, superior force, and tech advantage that you might otherwise enjoy if you were working alongside a full-fledged force.
One of your companions will be your brother, but more importantly, you'll also have your combat dog – named Riley – by your side. Another level in the demo appeared to take place in California (complete with earthquakes), and here Riley was controlled to great effect. Players will see what he sees via an attached camera, and in the demo it appeared that you get full control of him. He can take out enemies stealthily, as well as flush out larger groups so you can pick them off. Riley and his attached camera can also be used to recon areas, and his bark to distract patrols.

Not too bad.
I swear, if the dog dies in that game, I will sue Activision.
As much as I like dogs, that alone isn't enough to bring me back to a franchise that's been doing the same "kill enemies in an area" gig since its inception. I stopped following it since Black Ops, and I haven't missed it at all since.
I would start listening if they ran with the open-world and choice aspects that made Black Ops II look interesting, though.
No matter what they do to the series, the Call of Duty fanbase will continue to buy the games. I still love the Multiplayer and while Call of Duty hasn't necessarily made me feel as emotionally attached to their campaigns as games like Bioshock Infinite, I still enjoy playing the campaigns of the Call of Duty games. I'm definitely going to be buying this installment in the series and I'm looking forward to it
Because Ghost's real name was "Simon Riley"...............epic.
seriously? a whole *** day and this is it? i dont care if its sunday, gaming companies arent chritian. they should be in the *** center right now. saving everything for tomorrow only says theres not that much to look forward to this year. every week now im hearing or seeing some stupid flaw in the industry enough to make me wanna throw my *** out the window
Riley is my oldest nephews name. Great, I just got super attached to this dog. I'm going to feel the need to defend him no matter the cost.
The cutscene where he dies? Reset to last checkpoint and quit playing for life.
*blah, blah, blah, blah*
"... you'll also have your combat dog - named Riley... "
