Call of Duty: Ghosts

Extinction Mode Comes To Call Of Duty

Call of Duty: Ghosts is just one week away from launch. We’ve known about the single- and multiplayer modes for some time. The Squads mode has been detailed, also. Today we’re learning about something a bit more unnatural.

Extinction is coming to Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Ghosts. This new mode pits a team of up to four against mutant creatures. Activision describes the offering as a blend of survival action, base defense, and scavenging.

You can learn a bit more in the trailer below, featuring a few varieties of the monsters. Call of Duty: Ghosts is out for Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on November 5. Next-generation versions will be coming alongside the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more on Call of Duty: Ghosts, check out our coverage hub from the October 2013 issue.

  • Does anybody know if there will be a split-screen mode for Wii U? If so will it be for online multiplayer like BLOPS 2?

  • Well color me intrigued, I'm a sucker for zombies and mutants. I hope it's not wave after wave of the same creature with a spitter thrown in every once in awhile.

  • eeexxxcellent...

  • Well, wasn't planning on buying this game but now I kind of am.

  • DANG! I didn't like zombies very much, but this might actually convince me to get ghosts

  • DANG! I didn't like zombies very much, but this might actually convince me to get ghosts

  • Looks better then Zombies that's for sure. This will hopefully be fun!

  • it may be a nazi zombie rip-off...but im not complaining. I always like a good horde/survival mode

  • Ghosts looks extremely good...

  • Looks pretty cool if you're a multiplayer gamer.

  • Are there any other alien types?  Or do you just fight those annoying quadrupeds?

  • Cool. unoriginal, but cool!

  • Aliens better than zombies

  • Looks awesome. I just hope this has a set number of waves. Never could get into zombies because its not winnable so I never felt any motivation to try.

  • Awesome idea...if it weren't in a Call of Duty game. I used to buy CoD for a semi-realistic shooter, so that'll be ending anyway. Now I guess I'm buying more of a near-future version of Halo haha.

  • looks like zombies with base defense thrown in and killstreaks too

  • About time. Looks great.

  • Meh. This looks okay, but it still can't convince me to buy Ghosts.

  • This looks... ridiculous. But hey, BO Zombies probably did too, and it's fun as hell and IMHO one of the best parts of COD. We'll just have to see how this turns out.
