Infinity Ward has just posted a new video on Vine teasing some of the new features coming to Call of Duty: Ghosts. The Vine shows off a mode that lets you enable eSports Rules. Once you’ve enabled that mode, it gives you an option to Enable Broadcaster Mode.

From what we can see, broadcaster mode is most likely a newer version of CODCaster. We don’t have any footage of how this will work just yet.

UPDATE: Infinity Ward’s Candice Capen has confirmed that these features will be free and that it’s coming in a title update. We don’t have a release date for that update just yet. Stay tuned!

    cool

  • HenryDF

    YES! So pumped for this 😀

  • Mitch

    So, is this gonna be DLC or is it already in the game?

    • HenryDF

      It’s probably going to come in the Day One patch or else we’d know about it from the people who have it early.

      • Mitch

        If it’s DLC, it better be free, but hopefully it’s in the game yeah :D. I still doubt it’s in the game, with all the copies that have been leaked and the servers being online, surely it would also have been leaked if it was in the game? Maybe it gets added with the day one patch?

        • Sentrymann

          Well, the way I see it, they’re already getting a day one patch ready to fix leaning. I’m guessing this will just be added in there.

    • BudEagle26

      lol that was funny. haha definitely not DLC.

    • Primey_

      Patch

  • No Search & Destroy though….
    But you can notice the Modern Warfare 2 box.

    • BudEagle26

      There is SnD but it is not in the MP playlists. I wish CTF, Demolition and so on were also modes available in private match. :/ but Search and Destroy IS in the game. They want fewer MP playlists so that people playing online arent separated as much and there wont be game modes with only 300 people playing.

    • HenryDF

      That’s strange, it’s still completely sealed.

    • Primey_

      Search and Destroy is available when you’re making a custom match

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        I only play SnD with friends in custom games anyways 😛

  • Sentrymann

    That’s great that they have esport support, now please don’t go overboard with it….

    • Mitch

      Would be cool if they have a map count, so you can play BO3 and BO5.

      • HenryDF

        BO3 and BO5…?

        • Mitch

          Best of 3, Best of 5.

          • HenryDF

            Ahaha, I thought I’d missed out on some announcement about new Black Ops games..

          • Mitch

            No srry, I also got confused when I first watched eSports and people talked about BO3 :p

  • Drago

    Esports sucks

    • MaRS sT

      Most likely you’re bad. So I guess we’re even?

  • Francisco Robles

    YES! Thank you! This was the only thing about Ghosts I was worried about.

    • HenryDF

      The only thing? You’re seriously telling me it was the only thing? 😛

      • Francisco Robles

        To an extent, yeah. I mean ovviously I am worried about some other things, but this is what I was worried about the most. I like esports and I’m glad IW is doing their best to support it.

        • HenryDF

          Aha, fair enough

  • Mitch

    Just got the word from Candice Capen (Community Coordinator for Infinity Ward) on twitter, it will be patched in with a title update (no word if it’s on day one or later)

  • OldBrazy on PS4

    does esports have anything to do with the same leaderboards or will they have their own?

  • Common Sense

    only problem, they still WON’T allow you to customize it. It will be up to them what rules are esports rules and what aren’t. meaning you won’t have a difference between GB and MLG variant. just bleh. They seriously beat around the bush on everything don’t they? Why is it so hard to simply give the competitive people what they want? It will affect public players in absolutely ZERO way.

    • coolwhhhip

      Look, that isn’t fair to say at all. Just because you don’t see something, you don’t get to assume that’s the way things are. Pro community needs to chill for a min, y’all have already been made to look like bratty fools with this latest info. They clearly are willing to support esports, so even if they still need to modify things after launch, they’ll do it. You guys are funny.

      • Common Sense

        6 years…. do you think cod esports just appeared over night? they have had ALL year to get the settings right. what in the world were they thinking? tournaments are coming up, they just think the tournaments weren’t going to happen? bratty fools? you must an idiot of the first degree.

        • coolwhhhip

          What would you call it then? Some of the pro community acts like full on bitch made nerds. It’s hilarious. Nothing professional about it. Turns people off which is kinda the exact opposite of what you want. They can take that advice or not. You were spouting some unsubstantiated bullshit. Until you see the patched day one game, I would relax. Like I said though, even if things aren’t the way they should be, they are going to support those guys. (I say those guys because I know you’re not one of them. You’re just a mad support bitch) What did you think, settings and modes are hard to do? Haha. Pro scene is here to stay.

          • MaRS sT

            Another idiot…lol The only reason IW is patching this is because the competitive community were frustrated with them or they would have had in the game day 1 without a patch. You pub kids are the absolute worst. You’re A. terrible at the game and B. have literally no idea what you’re talking about. And LOL at just supporting “pro scene”? FACEPALM The competitive community has changed the way the game plays, and it’s not just a handful of players anymore. Whether or not you understand this, but the entire competitive community acts as one, they are literally the only unified community in the game and what’s worse is that garbage pub kids think we’re out to wreck the game, when in fact we make it better. The comp. community is all about competitive balance and skilled game that requires ability no luck to do well. You want to mash buttons and use crutches? Go play MW3 and MW2 where the garbage kids live. Fucking nerd.

          • coolwhhhip

            I will let the above garbage speak for itself. Couldn’t have asked for a better example to compliment my previous comment. For any actual pro that might be reading this, don’t worry, this is a embarrassing type of person to have as a fan, but I know most of the pro community and their supporters are good people. Every pro sport has their own scumbag hangers on types.

          • BudEagle26

            I understand why they are so mad at you. Treyarch had everything set up with no patches that allowed any one to change the settings to however they wanted. Simple setting like round timer and the huge thing that made competitive so much more enjoyable to watch was added in at the last second and we still dont know how similar it is to codcaster. The game modes arent even there except for SnD (only available in private match as of now). CTF is pretty much the biggest game mode for competitive and it isnt there. I still have hope that it will work out but IW said that they were supporting eSports and they are not doing a great job right now.

          • coolwhhhip

            When facts change, your attitude should change. They didn’t just add this broadcasting mode in here at the last minute. That isnt something you do overnight in response to some Twitter rage. I understood getting nervous about the look of the game when everyone got it early, but so many over reacted. There is so much stuff that devs still work on after they have to ship the discs and the day one update has those things. That’s what is meant to be seen by the public, not what we have now. It doesn’t really mean that it had to be patched in at the last minute. We don’t know that to be the case, that’s what people THINK as they worked themselves up imagining the worst. They got impatient and a lot of them embarrassed themselves.

  • SAMME

    remember how you could disable all map packs in mw3 and play all game modes with or without dlc maps. i think they are doing the same here but with the rules so you can be matchmaking with competitive rules in any game mode.

    • Paul

      That’s not eSports… eSports for CoD = a CTF, and SnD Ruleset…

  • Duffnez

    someone tell what are esports, and why every one så happy about it that you can play without it?

    • Common Sense

      its competitive cod, unlike TmarTn or Ali-A, cod esports feature the BEST players in the world. and you can play at a competitive level, going against the best players in the world.

  • Adam Bittel

    Add me I’ll be on 12:01. LFLAWLLESS_315

  • James K

    E-sports community hounded Candice for days after hearing some recent news of COD Ghosts. This will get some heat off her back.

    • Common Sense

      not much at all really. they still aren’t allowing people to customize the gameplay settings, just giving them a button to put on the features is really pointless. glad they got a caster mode, but there is soooooo much more that needs to be done.

      • coolwhhhip

        Settings are easy. You’re spouting unsubstantiated nonsense. Just because you didn’t see an expansive look at the setup doesn’t mean that it’s not available. You can’t read between the lines at all? They are clearly willing to support it. Now sure, they aren’t slobbering over themselves like treyarch did for competitive, but they don’t need to. The support comp needs is easy, it will be done and doesnt have to be at the forfeiture of the bigger picture. It’s not going anywhere which is great. Relax.

  • TheCheeseWeel

    guys, look closly at the beginning of the video, it specifically shows us a PC copy of the game. i think this may only be on the PC version of the game

    • It’s a Modern Warfare 2 box…

    • MaRS sT

      THATS WHY THERE IS A START BUTTON ON THE SCREEN YOU NUB

  • Kratoss_20

    Can somebody tell me what does this means?

  • Batman

    I hate E-sports shit

    • Mr Obvious

      So don’t watch it then, duh!

    • HenryDF

      Given that it doesn’t actively affect you in game and that it isn’t some major game-changing feature, I don’t see why you’re complaining. Infinity Ward are trying to meet everyone’s wishes and needs, just because they didn’t meet yours with this…

    • MaRS sT

      most likely because you are awful at the game and hate kids who are good. Maybe step your game up or go find something else scrub

  • Nicholas Carabin

    *Batman voice* eSports coming to CoD: Ghosts? OMG

    • Rob Schneider

      Why batman in particular?

  • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

    Awesome. glad they are trying to make everyone in the community happy.

  • BOOMBOOM

    If you don’t like competitive then you are gay

    • Ryumoau

      people should be able to play anyway they like.

  • Kratoss_20

    Can somebody tell me what does this means?

    • MaRS sT

      It means IW is back tracking on their failed attempt of a competitive game. The entire competitive community roasted them non stop over the last 72 hours to the point where IW had to make a quick patch or be forced to lose an entire communities confidence in them before the game even came out. IW fucked up badly with this, their game modes are trash, maps are too big, everyone dies in less than 4 shots and every game mode is based around kills except for Domination which is a trash game type and ridiculously boring to play. I also wouldn’t doubt that MLG somehow got involved and was like “da fuq is this shit”?

      • coolwhhhip

        Haha! This guy thinks they just added a broadcasting dashboard over night. Nope they weren’t going to do it until they got cussed out on Twitter over the past couple of days. Haha love it!

      • some1exampe1

        you’re saying you can’t be “competitive” unless you’re chasing red dots and red arrows around 3 hallway maps, hip firing your smg with massive lag advantages.

        if you can’t be “competitive” on asymmetrical maps with multiple vertical vantage points that require strategy, tactics, then it means you need to put more practice in.

        and all these wanna be “pros” and youtubers are going to quickly find out all the glaring weaknesses in their game if infinity ward went back old school.

  • Jon Cameron

    If any PC dudes wanna play, add me on Steam -http://steamcommunity.com/id/dreamland_/ – I probably won’t be on until ~8AM EST as I have to work until 7:30AM EST.
