Infinity Ward’s Mark Rubin spoke with Kotaku about Ghosts MP and mentioned a few things that are new.

  • Ghosts will ship with 14 MP maps.
  • There will be no cross generation play for Ghosts – “That, currently from what I understand, is not allowed, so it’s unlikely that that will happen,” Rubin said. “And just from a developer standpoint, I’m not sure it’s a good idea. The main reason why is because, graphically, they’re different. It would be really bad if, graphically, on one machine, the higher-rez, higher-poly smoke is obscuring visibility but on a 360 its not and that would put an advantage in one court or another.
  • Special challenge for the dog: “We do have an interesting challenge… if you see someone around the corner and he kills you and your dog is out and the dog kills the guy who kills you, you get a challenge-completion called ‘Martyr Dog.'”
  • The destruction is not as much as Battlefield; game has triggered events; some are player activated; you can shot out some walls
  • “As far as speed is concerned I think the players move maybe 5% slower, maybe 2% slower, but at the same time they actually move over stuff faster, so the effect is that you feel like you’re moving through the world faster than ever before.”

    • david

    • Batman

      Trollarch is better at trolling

      • David Sync

        u obviously never seen the MW3 reveal

  • ip x Warrior

    14 map + Free fall ?

    • iPLAY 2 ANNOY U

      that’s a shitload right?! xD

    • Yes like bo2 with nuketwon

      • Guest

        Okay thanks 🙂

  • ccrows

    When has cross-generation ever happened in a console game before? I’m drawing a blank…

    • MoistButts

      Halo 2 and pretty much every original xbox game that had multiplayer.

      • ccrows

        Ahhh.. thanks for the response! 🙂

        I mostly did Halo/2 for the campaign, and played at friends house for MP.

        I never really got into MP until COD4, and ironically “COD’s MP” ruined a lot of single player games for me afterwards… 😉

  • Bigi345

    well at least the dedicated servers aren’t denied

    • iPLAY 2 ANNOY U

      if Titanfall (made by a brand new company that branched off IW due to drama) is doing Dedicated Servers, you would think they’d wanna backlash at the branched off company that is trying to compete with them.

      🙂 so, i think we’ll see dedicated servers…too many people have been CONSTANTLY complaining about lag and i think it’s our time to get what we cried so many tears over.

      • James Bond II

        Dedicated servers don’t mean no lag, but it is possible to see somewhat of a difference. The problem is the quality of the connection that the players have like ping. I don’t they would have dedicated servers in this game, but the next ones will most likely.

        • Roxas3510

          Correct. Even with dedicated servers there can still be lag, the only difference would be the lag would be on your end and not the person who’s hosting the lobby.

        • iPLAY 2 ANNOY U

          im aware… but u filter out the bad ping and voila magnifique. unless you are streaming internet off of McDonalds

        • kirby_

          You’ll definitely see a difference. I’m not saying Call of Duty overall doesn’t have lag issues, but it mostly comes from the latency players have. If people were able to play on a server located near them with other people who have around the same ping, it would be a lot less of an issue.

      • The Xbox One has 3000 cloud servers if you play online I think than no lagg

        • iPLAY 2 ANNOY U

          sweet, thanks lover. come here and gimme kiss.

        • DanDustEmOff

          300,000 dedicated servers.

    • HH KiLLaMaNiLLa

      I watched a Aussie Xbox One Conference from PAX and the guy said Xbox One will be dedicated servers only and said no more host migration. And this article also say the same

  • Gustavo

    5% slower compared with which game?


    14 plus freefall? .. hmm nice.

  • TurdyBird14

    So we know 3 of the maps so far, Strikezone, Octane, and Whiteout, and the bonus Free-Fall makes 15.



      • Siftblade of Rivia

        The fuck is this supposed to mean?

    • iPLAY 2 ANNOY U

      NO!!! 3 + 1 = 4, not 15.

      • TurdyBird14

        Well we don’t know 11 of the 15, we know four of them which includes Free-Fall.

        • iPLAY 2 ANNOY U

          it was a joke, you turdy little bird. you only mentioned 4 maps and then said it makes 15, just the way you said it… sounded off. haha

  • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

    Where is the part where he discusses dedicated servers? Would like to see what he says in depth.

    • MrNobodyEpic

      They don’t

    • Howard Anthony Collings

      ” Dedicated servers? “Dedicated servers, I can’t say yet,” Rubin said. Sounds like they’ll be making people happy or sad regarding dedicated servers some time in the future. ” -Kotaku article, click the link at the bottom of this article

      • MeisseN

        Heh heh, much better than Vonderhaar who said there was gonna be Dedi servers for PC BO2

      • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

        Ah I see. Thanks.

  • Splash

    This game is looking amazing! I’m definitely getting this and Assassins Creed IV Black Flag!

    • iPLAY 2 ANNOY U

      why because it’s BLACK? that’s racist.

  • Ascending Legend

    What do they mean by cross generation?

    • Tad

      Xbox one playing with Xbox 360, PS4 with PS3…

  • Abhishek Jain

    so no dedicated servers

  • Stiltzkin’s Bandana

    I really hope they implement dedicated servers. I mean, hell it’s about time. If they’re really concerned about even playing field and fair game, they should scrap that host advantage bullsh…

    • BudEagle26

      I dont know why everyone wants dedicated servers. Dedicated servers are why I dont play PC games or battlefield 3 on my PS3. If CoD goes to them then I will have nothing fun to play. I stopped having fun with BF3 when they added dedicated servers to PS3.

      • Stiltzkin’s Bandana

        Why? What’s the problem with dedicated servers?

  • Riley Woof

    It´s a next gen CoD on next gen hardware and there will still be only around 14 default maps??? :/
    WOW what a joke. What is the excuse for this? and I don´t want to hear any crap like ‘the xbox360 and ps3 versions are restricting map limit’. what a disappointment.

    I´m guessing the weapon limit will also be the same as the past 4 years?? :/

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I was kinda hoping they’d give more, but it makes sense since they try to make the same game for both consoles. Hopefully Treyarch’s next game is only on next gen.

    • FreeFall how they did in B02

    • MrJDGuns

      battlefield i think only had 9 so.

      • Batman

        Battlefield maps are 100000x bigger than CoD maps. That´s why there cant be too much at launch.

        The ship on the BO2 map “Carrier” is only a spawn point in Battlefield

    • BudEagle26

      What are you? Stupid? Why have more than 14 maps? And there are a lot of weapons in this game.

  • Xbox one has 3000 cloud servers no lag

    • Usman Mohammad

      Those are not for MP gaming, those 300,000 cloud servers are Azure based servers that do off site processing for games. It’s for developers to push some processing power off from the console to the Azure cloud servers.

      • JayZero

        MS confirmed that all MP games on Xbox One have the option of dedicated servers

        • Batman

          No, that was rumored info.

          The servers are just vfor cloud and stuff..


    i just bought the xbox one Call of Duty Ghosts- Hardened Edition for £75 use the code ‘TDX-HD6P’ on the tesco site;pageNo=1

  • Cell

    Please Activision/IW, dedicated servers for all platforms, please please please. I’m sick of lag and host migration.

  • James

    If you have your dog out and an opponent also have their dog out, can your dog protect you from your opponent’s dog?

  • MathewM7

    Since they haven’t confirmed dedicated servers, that means they might be working on it 😀 We’ll just cross our fingers and wait.

  • melle us cologne

    make it or leave it

  • Oscar

    Okay dokay? ;3
