Call of Duty: Ghosts Squad Modes Detailed

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.

  • Enough of this CoD junk. GIVE MORE MORE HALF-LIFE 3!!!!!!!
  • looks cool
  • looks cool
  • Looks good on paper, now lets see how it plays.....
  • So I haven't seen a yes or no answer to this question or anywhere where anyone talks about it but will we be able to use our squad members that we made in safeguard mode? I would love to but I am going to assume no since they haven't specifically said so.
  • Interesting, but not cool enough to bring me back to the Call of Duty series.

  • This reminds me of Perfect Dark and its array of Sims - something I'm _still_ surprised nobody has tried to match since the N64 days (until, apparently, now) - I for one would find it interesting to see how IW's creations compare.

  • about time Squads got more attention. it's my most anticipated feature this holiday!

  • This just makes me miss Republic Commando.
  • Looks pretty good, I really need to be more interested in multiplayer but I'm just not... Sigh

  • Did cod take a page out of ghost recon?
  • The idea is sound but I hope that their claim of fantastic bot ai is as good as they say.

  • This looks like an interesting blend of standard Spec Ops and its Survival variant.

  • So based on this Squads video it sounds like most of Squads will just be multiplayer, except versus AI rather than being against other humans, along with a four player upgraded version of MW3's Survival mode. Seems like a let down to me after both Zombies and Spec Ops were their own unique experience.
