The lights are on
The signature spectacle of Call of Duty’s campaign mode is
heading to multiplayer. Those who pre-order Call of Duty: Ghosts before it releases
on November 5 will receive access to Free Fall, a multiplayer level that reshapes
itself as a match progresses.
The map is set in a destroyed skyscraper that has collided
with a neighboring building. Destruction is more than eye candy, though. As the building
shifts and breaks apart, walking paths and lines of sight will change.
Activision offered Nuke Town 2025 as a pre-order bonus for Black
Ops 2, but it received heat from the community after pulling the map from multiplayer
circulation. There’s no word yet on whether Free Fall will remain exclusive to
customers who pre-ordered Ghosts and if it will be available permanently, or only during scheduled events.
Our TakeThis sounds a lot like the “levolution”
technology EA showed off in Battlefield 4 at this year’s E3. Regardless, I do like the idea of an ever-changing multiplayer map, especially in objective modes where you need to bring an item back to your base.
