Activision has announced that its upcoming modern military shooter—Call of Duty: Ghosts—will be getting a new pre-order bonus in the form of a free multiplayer map. The map, dubbed Free Fall, will be available to everyone who pre-orders the game for the PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.
The map drops players into a shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse. Sideways staircases climb into the night sky, elevator shafts run along the ground and what were once windows now form a terrifying glass floor that is hundreds of feet above the city streets. It is a close quarters combat map with which developer Infinity Ward hopes to show off the new dynamic map events that will be making their way into the new Call of Duty game.
The Free Fall map will show off dynamic map events
Throughout the match, the ruined skyscraper continues to fall down. With every drop, the accompanying shockwaves cause further destruction, disrupting sightlines and constantly evolving paths and chokepoints as the map changes in real-time.
"Dynamic map events change the way players approach the game, and Free Fall does a great job illustrating this new mechanic,” said Mark Rubin, Executive Producer, Infinity Ward. “As the match progresses, the geometry of the world continues to change and players need to adjust on the fly or else. It’s a really fun new feature that adds layers of strategy and constantly evolving gameplay options for players. And this is just one of the many new approaches we’re putting into Ghosts’ multiplayer across the board. There’s so much more that we look forward to sharing in the weeks to come."
Call of Duty: Ghosts will be coming out on the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 and PC on November 5. The game will also be making its way to the next-gen Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 later this year after the consoles are launched.
