Activision has announced an ‘Extinction Day’ which will take place on Friday the 13th.

On Friday, December 13th, we invite fans around the world to fight off alien swarms on Extinction Day, a global community event in Call of Duty: Ghosts. In addition to community gameplay livestreams, Extinction Day will feature an exclusive IGN Live broadcast from Infinity Ward, including behind-the-scenes Q&As with the developers and an exclusive first look at new features coming soon to Extinction.

Extinction Day will also kick off the first ever Extinction Double XP Weekend, where players can earn twice the XP on all of their Extinction play.

The day will feature a live stream from IGN from IW. IW is also turning on double XP for the Extinction mode on all platforms on Friday. The Double XP starts on Friday at 10am PT, and will end on Monday, Dec 16, at 10am PT.

    extinction is so damn boring

    • mile104mc

      I felt the same until I started playing with a group of friends and just messing around. It’s more fun. I think it has potential, but not nearly as good as Zombies as of now.

    • HenryDF

      It needs variables, and to be honest, we’re not going to see that until DLCs. It’s far step-by-step, and Infinity Ward kind of overlooked something by making it similar to a campaign – there’s a reason people don’t play the SP campaign over and over again, because it’s boring.

      Extinction has so much potential, but I don’t think it’s been properly utilised this time round. It reminds me a lot of TranZit, in terms of both the theme and the boringness.

      Extinction needs a brighter, more open and non-linear level. Then, if it is destined to, it really will succeed. At the moment, like you said, it’s boring.

      • mile104mc

        I disliked the dark Zombie maps, sure it sets the tone, but I like bright maps myself. Hopefully Extinction will have a variety.

    • CoDforever

      I love extinction, much better than zombies IMO. They actually react when getting shot and its just more fun overall. I will agree that Zombies has some of its own pros tho, such as a storyline and actual characters but it seems stangnat to me. Only con’s about extinction is that at the moment its only 1 map and it feels boring, plus its only 1 hour with an ending. I really like the variation of aliens and how they jump around and stuff.

      • mile104mc

        Adding characters would be great! Maybe more interesting one than BO2 zombies? The only interesting characters in Zombies were Samantha, Maxis, and Rictofen.

        • fires

          not even the stereo type asian takeo, drunken soviet nikolai, or even the swear-crazy tank? The OG zombie characters were the best

    • Leoz Maxwill Gilliumz

      I agree with that because no matter what IW tries to make it won’t compare to 3Arc’s zombies

      • Wish Chaos

        Honestly, Zombies is dryed out in my opinion, this is clearly better, there is a clear, reall objective.

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    Why couldn’t they have extinction in a close quarter and dark area on a spaceship or something, they should have done it more like the alien movies!

    • John Blue

      Because so many games have done it like that before? Because it would have been a lot like Zombies?

      Don’t know really, but hey, try understanding the people behind Ghosts and you’ll just get your head spinnin’…

      • Alexander Kleinwechter

        It would be nothing like zombies, i meant more in little ventilation shafts and then comes a alien in the next corner, or maybe some aliens in some huge catacomb system!

        • mile104mc

          Sounds like Dead Space.

    • Guest

      it exists and the game is called Dead Space, you should check it out sometime.

    • TheShadowReaper

    Why we don’t have a Double XP For Multiplayer we got only one with lunch
    and the system of ranking in Ghosts is Fucking Horrible and too damn long
    and the PS4 and XBOX ONE Owners had 2 events for multiplayer Double XP

    i remember in BO2 the Ranking System was Great and there is alot of Double XP Events for Multiplayyer

    • LiquidCourage

      I have Ghosts on Xbox One and we have only had Double MP XP once so far.

      • British Blaze

        Well if you Pre-ordered Ghosts for last-gen then upgraded to next-gen then it’s possible to have had two Double XP events.

      • Psychomaggot105

        Counting the last gen db xp. It would be two. Since it is counting towards one account.

    • Gabito

      Next-Gen has only had one 2XP so far.

  • TheShadowReaper

    well maybe thats a reason for me to play the game? ehh…i dont know. even extiction was a let down this year. why the fuck this happens with IW every 2 years. fuck IW.

    • Josh

      If you think you can make a better game, go for it! You don’t understand how much work they put into this game – and yes some things didn’t work well, but posting you pathetic comment doesn’t really help, maybe suggests improvements. I don’t fully understand what you ‘expect’ from the game when it’s a AAA game – you cannot get much better than what already out there taking into consideration next gen has only released.

      • TheShadowReaper

        please, dont bring up game development as a topic against me, i know a lot about it so dont worry.

        ofc its a AAA title, its kicks BF4 ass any day any where for me, but it just isnt the game i wanted to play, just not the COD i get pumped up about like i do for Treyarch titles. i understand that the chaotic chaos that is included in IW games is enjoyed by many but not by me. the more solid experience that Treyarch provides suits my taste. and tbh if Ghosts was like COD4 i wouldnt complain about that either…but its not, its in a league of its own which i do not enjoy.

        • AverageJoe

          Always been a die hard IW fan but have to agree this game so far has been nothing but dissapointment. They have changed the mechanics of multiplayer like you can’t run and gun like previous cods it’s so slow and there’s the instant deaths which I though they might patch. And extinction isn’t close to zombies although a step up from spec ops.

    • mile104mc

      I had no idea there were so many Treyarch fans until Ghosts came out.

      • Shardlotte

        I had no idea there were so many IW fans until BOII came out.

        • fires

          There are far more biased studio players than i thought, more Treyarch ones over IW ones, i love both, but fuck me, right?

  • Grigori

    My grandma her birthday is on friday the 13th. That’s even more interesting than this..

  • George

    Well cool.

    • Kog

      Join new clan if you like extinction Extinction31

      • George

        Even if I enjoyed Extinction that much, I’m not on a console that supports the clans stuff X3

  • SgtRetro

    Fast pace game mode. Better Improvement then Black ops 2 Zombies

  • Guest

    Playing on paint is more interesting.

  • Ryumoau

    I haven’t even started Extinction mode yet, so this might help motivate me.

  • Condemnt

    I need double xp for multiplayer!

    • djacks

      So, double XP is not for multiplayer also?

  • Marth

    I had alot of fun with Extinction. Don’t know why people hate it so much right now. I think its better than Zombies too, since this actually has action and has more what i love about CoD. (fast paced action, zombies is quite slow) I have escaped about 5 times now and i still like playing it. Relics make it more fun also. Excited to see the new map/features.

    • Nick Tialavea

      Its because after they finished it, they don’t feel like playing it again.

  • SoulTaker

    I actually love Extinction it’s a big improvement from Survival from MW3 ! 😀
    It’s also a nice refresher from playing zombies all the time. I’m already prestige 3 on it so I’m hoping with the DLC packs that they expand it with more class loadouts and more DLC maps for Extinction cause one map can only last so long. 🙂

  • yeah boyeee

    it’s boring because it’s their first map when zombies started it didn’t have any of the stuff it does now

  • ABearInTheWoods

    You earn XP from playing extinction? Is it the same amount as playing regular multiplayer?

    • Epicsand

      It is the same.

    • BlueBeard

      No, Extinction has its own leveling process. Personally, i really like it. You unlock gear and class choices up to level 30, then automatically prestige. This takes nothing away and gives you a choice of relics to add to your loadout, which make the game harder in exchange for more xp. You can prestige up to 5 times for 5 relics.

  • CGkillZ

    Ghosts multiplayer blows now. Only cause the hackers, they need an update for it. Or else a lot of people will stop playing

    • AverageJoe

      I can’t not believe how long they’ve taken to stop hackers, a child can download the USB hack file and feel like a god. It’s embarrassing IW

      • CGkillZ

        Its horrible I like the game but damn that’s really the only reason that discourages me from playing. Also I think they should add more health to your player because i’ll walk around the map trying to find people for a long time then die instantly. I want the death time like Black ops 1.

  • Shardlotte

    I’m actually really excited to hear about these “new features”. Hopefully, they’ll add an endless mode!

  • Who actually plays this?

  • … in all honesty I find Extinction rather boring!

  • Cell

    Ghosts was Extinguished from my list of Call of Dutys.

  • Scottay

    Extinction is just like the old Half Life mod Sven Co-op. Co-op team battle against AI controlled aliens. I was a big fan of that Half Life mod and I’m diggin Extinction too!
