Call of Duty: Ghosts introduces a brand new Co-Op game mode called Extinction. With the launch of Ghosts just 2 days away, we’ve put together a list of everything we know thus far about this new mode.

  • Aliens are transverse – they attack from the walls, rooftops, from all directions
  • Took the team 4-6 months to get the engine to be able to support the “3-D like” world that Extinction puts you in
  • FPS Base defense mixed with Survival type modes
  • Class leveling – separate from MP
  • There are 6 items in your load outs: Class, Pistol Type, Ammo Type, Team Support, Strike Package, and Equalizer. Four of these are accessible from the directional pad on your controller.

  • Within the load outs, each of the items unlock at certain levels.
  • As you play Extinction, you earn XP – this XP is separate from XP earned in MP.
  • For every hive you beat and for every challenge you complete, you earn Skill Points. You can spend these Skill Points on the load out lines. You can buff each of those classes incredibly.
  • There’s an MK32 grenade launcher – if you buff it up enough, it can shoot fire, or the death machine which can shoot incendiary ammo.
  • Ammo and Support class are deployable – meaning you can place those on locations to help your team as well.
  • Here’s and example of a support feature: Feral Vision – the screen highlights out the aliens location

  • There’s also scavenging – there’s items hidden around the maps in random places.
  • These items can benefit the team when trying to complete the match. For example, there is the trophy system that helps you protect from enemy projectiles. There’s also a hypno knife, which if you kill an alien with that, the alien will become an ally. Propane tanks, death traps, electric fences, gas traps, fire traps, cash, and attachments as well.

  • You can have up to four attachments on your assault rifle.
  • There’s also sections divided up in the classes – four different ones: Weapon Specialist, Tank, Medic, and Engineering:
    • Weapon Specialist
      • 20% more bullet damage.
      • The Weapon Specialist focuses on one vital task: destroy as many aliens as possible. The extra bullet damage really comes in handy when dealing with heavily armored threats or when fighting back a swarm of smaller enemies. Weapon handling continues to improve as the Weapon Specialist gains levels.
    • Tank
      • 25% more health.
      • The brute of the group, Tanks stand at the front and take hits that would otherwise knock out other, more fragile classes. The extra health lets you play more aggressively, getting into the thick of things and coming out alive. Additional levels further improve the Tank’s health in addition to their lethality.
    • Engineer
      • Provide armor for the drill and earn more bonus cash.
      • Without a functioning drill, your team will have a very difficult time progressing. The Engineer offers much needed protection to the team’s drill, incredibly useful during moments when you get overwhelmed. Drill maintenance and trap efficiency improve as the Engineer gains levels.
    • Medic
      • Revive allies more quickly.
      • When things go wrong – and they will go wrong – the Medic’s there to pick up the pieces and get the team back in fighting condition. Fast revivals can mean the difference between success and failure, and an active Medic can help turn the tide of an intense battle. The Medic gains faster movement speed and powerful healing abilities with additional levels.

  • hmm

    I have preordered ghosts on ps3 and have almost 10gb space left.. will this be enough to download ghosts???

    • The TRUTH

      OMG no space left to download. Cry me a river

    • Shank

      I’m not sure whether or not the PS3 download is smaller or the same as the 360’s (Which is around 13.5 GB). Just delete some old map packs if this is the case.

      • hmm

        i got nothing on my ps3 and its almost 10gb left… i have the 12gb version..fuk…what am i supposed to do now:O?

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          When in doubt, delete all your save files. Lol just kidding, don’t do that.

    • Drago

      the Download is only for campaign

      • hmm

        How can i just download the MP? i dont ever play campaign…

          • lol I remember that, proof the YT commentators have no lives outside of YT.

    • RealAli-A

      Jealous much? Check out my channel on youtube guys!

      • Grigori

        You are “fake”

      • Just cause your name says “RealAli-A” doesn’t mean you’re the real..Ali-A…


      Finally someone on this website that knows the truth!

    • CoDforever

      did you notice when he reuploads a trailer he does a mini breakdown for 10 minutes now ? He doesnt wanna end up like TmarTn Lmao !

    • HenryDF

      The worst thing is that he gets all his news from this website, and he’s only given this place credit ONCE throughout all the Ghosts hype calling it “a new source”. Absolutely pathetic. He’s so annoying.

    • mckevstah

      Hahahaha i just noticed the name LOL!, the best tihng is,. he will see this, because he gets his stuff form here hahaah

    • Badboy

      OMFG!!! Hey Ali-a. Im a subscriber.

    • alec

      whats your xbox gamertag ali-a so we can play some extinction!

  • Drago

    Deleted my comment….

  • CoDforever

    Theres just so much to do in this whole game !

  • The Flash

    it seems very much like survival just with aliens instead and 4 players which was fun for like 15 mins, it wont compete with zombies, and im not in any rush to get it

    • Shooter

      It’s nothing like survival or zombies. They are both round based horde mode gametypes while Extinction can be completed and it requires team work aswell. You get challenges you can complete in Extinction to earn more XP and bonuses. I agree that Zombies will be hard to beat but we’ll just have to play this for a good few hours until we can find out for ourselves.

    • SeaSaltSora

      Play it.

  • Classrobbie

    The Hypno knife turns an alien friendly… just to let you know

  • extinctioninfo

    http://­­watch?v=PUY-ihiE-co some gameplay I found on youtube

  • Josh

    Like my comment AliA

  • faf

    Do we know if it will be endless, or have an end?

    • Batman

      You can end it

  • EndiabladoAdn

    – Is the same call of duty as the last 10 years?
    – Yes, sir. but now includes fish and aliens
    – I want it !!

    (Real History)

    • HenryDF

      – Is this the same kid who’s one a CoD site hating about CoD?
      – Yes, sir. But now, he thinks he’s being clever.
      – Really? Well he isn’t. He’s being a dick and no one wants him around here.
      – I agree, he should go waste his time better playing BF4.

      (Real fact)

    • Missing amazing waves technology like in BF4?

  • im a faggot

    I’m going to try extinction but it looks like zombies and zombies sucked in BO1 and BO2. Multiplayer is the key 🙂

    • Looks nothing like zombies… Looks like L4D but better

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        When I saw the trailer, all I thought about was L4D2. They’re so similar.

      • Hey

        That’s exactly what I thought. It looks and plays kind of like Left 4 Dead mixed with Counter Strike.

    • Batman

      Die. just die

    • IonComet

      Not when it gets stale like cods. But Ghosts looks refreshing in its new exterior game with a new gameplay style unlike blops2 which it ressembled mw3 too much

  • Pewdiepie

    I love cod

  • Pewdiepie

    Hey me to

  • Pewdiepie

    Yay I’m not alone

  • Pewdiepie

    Bro fist

  • I think you should be able to have a class, and unlock different things in the classes, such as new guns and perks and such, but you should have to use skill points to level up the classes everytime you start a new game, not carry over all the skill points you use because it wouldn’t be fun if you were fully upgraded every game.

    • Hey

      You start right back at the bottom every time you start a new match. You level up through experience which unlocks whether you could have shock ammo or incendiary ammo, but you have to earn the skill points to max out the skills each time you go into the game.

  • iAmEFFeX

    I have to give credit to Infinity Ward, they really put a lot of work into this game. I can’t wait to play it!

  • Xecho

    To bad it actually sucks . My opinion.

  • rafael

    ahahahahah the youtuber fight was so funny (:

  • KoolAidMan

    “IGN- Call of Duty: Ghosts extinction mode puts Battlefield 4 to shame”

  • Ali-a

    I’m Not a faggot

  • Franko

    Where is extinction mode on pc??? I can’t find it on the menu!

    • Hey

      You have to either get to level 5 in multiplayer or beat the first four levels in campaign to unlock it. Once you do either, or both, it’ll show up on the main menu under Squads.

      • Franko


      • MJ

        no wth just open campaign and like i barely finished the first level and it unlocked

  • xAnthonii

    Y’aura un chapitre 2 ? Parce que le 1 er est assez simple et rapide quand on a compris le mode ..

  • MJ

    hey i got this game like a week ago, they forgot to mention the fact that extinction mode unlocks after starting the campaign, i got rlly confused when i got the game and found no extinction mode, and also since there were no extinction videos online at the time, it was a pain in the ass, but hey i started campaign and the next mornign i turned the game on and i found extinction mode 😛 fucking awesome, P.S after the first 2 barrier hives, ur gonna die, gud luck

  • IGotYoMamaInMyBed

    I faggot, you faggot, he, she, we, faggot. Faggbonium, faggology I mean come on it’s the study of faggots!
