Call of Duty: Ghosts Already Set to Stomp Battlefield 4

May 1st has marked the official announcement of Call of Duty: Ghosts. After a few weeks of some pretty precise rumors players minds were put at ease when Activision finally announced that the rumors were basically true. What we have learned as far as in-game details so far is that the upcoming game in the renowned series will be set in a future setting with modern weapons; there is an entirely new cast of characters and an entirely new plotline. Call of Duty: Ghosts is going to be the next-generation of Call of Duty which is a huge statement considering we are talking about the franchise that completely overtook the current console generation that we are currently gaming on. (Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

considering Battlefield 3 was half the game call of duty ever was and the fact that BF3 wasnt truly even playable the first few days of release I hope ghosts does better.

Sales Dont = quality, but they do help in the stomping competition argument.
SolidStoner  +   851d ago
If ghosts will have a new engine, I will watch gameplay and reviews and if I like it I will buy it and give it a second chance.. (well fifth chance :)) meantime Im 100% confident I will buy Battlefield 4 first, after playing BF3 and COD:BO2.. BF3 is just 10 times better period..

and you know cod is not doing big leaps forward like battlefield do... but this time it can change, will see!

Dude Battlefield is a whole other caliber game, call of duky is a .22 for angry kids who don't like "humiliation"

battlefield is a 72mm helicopter round. the game is huge, its epic, and it looks/sounds better in all ways.

"ghost set to stomp battlefield 4" haha set to maybe try to stomp on its toe.

Stomp... no way, COD trend is in decline, It'll sell well but not everyone is eating this crap anymore
_-EDMIX-_  +   850d ago
Lol I'm surprised that in this day in age people are still comparing battlefield to call of duty.

call me when these guys write up the gran trismo vs need for speed article.

Black Ops 2 is STILL broken and near-unplayable--6 months after launch--with its horrendous lag compensation and lag issues that render it impotent as a competitive online shooter:

GraveLord  +   851d ago
It's completely playable to me. Good for you that found a video of the game lagging. How does that prove anything?
Statix  +   851d ago

Did you even watch the video? Even on LAN and split-screen games (where players are supposed to enjoy a lag-free experience of ~0ms ping) Black Ops 2 has a "built-in" lag of 150ms ping added to EVERY player. This 100% proven, built-in lag completely precludes the game from serious consideration as a skill-based shooter. Any competitive gamer who's played many online FPS games will laugh you off the street if you think 150ms ping is good!

Keep in mind that this 150ms built-in lag is only for LAN and split-screen. When playing online, the amount of built-in extra lag is MUCH worse--you can get up to 1000ms ping of extra lag depending on your connection to the host! This crazy amount of lag that Treyarch built into the game is why you constantly die after running behind cover, or why enemies kill you before you can even see them--the frequency with which these things occur depending on how laggy the other players in the game are.

"Unplayable" may not be the most exacting term to describe Black Ops 2. After all, it IS playable (at times)... even though the experience on the whole sucks. "Extremely inconsistent" and "random" are better ways to describe the experience of playing Black Ops 2. The extremely inconsistent lag and gameplay experience renders the game a terrible experience, wherein your level of success is completely luck-based and connection-based, rather than based on your skill and reaction time.

Watch the video again, and then see if you can come up with a proper rebuttal next time.

I don't think Black Ops 2 is anywhere near being broken and unplayable, and I'm usually one of the first to criticise its' shortcomings.

I bought that game at launch for PS3 and haven't had any problems. My friends on LIVE have never mentioned anything. I have no idea how it runs on the PC.

It's fine to not like a particular game or genre, but it's a little childish to blatantly lie about it.
T2  +   850d ago
He isn't blatantly lying. Have you ever played the game and watched the killcams? They aren't even close. It's almost random sometimes as you can be kiled before you even round a corner but of course the killcam shows you running out of cover with your thumb up your a..
Kte  +   851d ago
Yeah sorry but no I disagree completely. BF3 half the game? LOL BF3 had way better aspects of a FPS game then COD EVER WILL so LOL to you my good sir. COD is a fast paced FPS while BF3 focuses on the real type of shooting, and just every aspect to follow. For example, I can run and gun no problem in in call of duty, in fact online was fun just because I can run and kill quick. BF3, different story, first off the field really makes the game more in depth, when shit blows up, can you really sit here and say that it's not like something in the real world you would deal with if you were in war? and with BF4?!?!, yeah NO screw call of duty lol they would have had me if this new one had zombies, but guess ill stick with Bops2 for my zombie fun
Donnieboi  +   850d ago
@TheSuperior: In most of your comments, You praise COD as if it isn't a stale P.O.S.; you say that MS is more hardcore despite it's focus on apps and Kinect, and no exclusives); and use Saints Row 3 as your avatar.

You couldn't be more "bro-dude" if your name was Cliffy B.

Yeah, we should really give your opinion's serious consideration. s/

If Cod was anywhere nears as good as BF3's MP than I would agree, SP mabey but MP, BF3 handsdown on MP!
TheGrimBunny  +   851d ago
Whoa I dunno about this but COD always does something crazy to up the anti and it is Infinity Ward's turn to publish the COD title.
TheSuperior  +   851d ago
Kind of looking forward to seeing what both games could do with next gen consoles right around the corner you know.
AngryEnglish  +   850d ago
But we all know the Infinity Ward that's devolping this game is not the Infinity Ward that gave us CoD, CoD 2, CoD 4 MW, and MW2, for me the last good CoD was MW, it was amazing when it released, MW3 was just shit.

Most of infinity ward are now a part of respawn.
THESHAUNZY  +   850d ago
Angry is right ever since Zampella and West left IW hasn't been the same... the rushed project that was MW2 with the early bugs/glitches was an early sign until they left in March after not receiving their bonuses from Acti. Then MW3 comes and goes with no big bang and with sledgehammer games picking up the slack as far as MP is concerned... Ghosts hasn't been revealed but then again... I think this year we should all take a year off of COD and play some GTA V
T2  +   850d ago
ya i would argue that MW3 is worse than BOPS2, so i will gladly skip IW's next COD

Sorry but CoD wins this hands down. As much as I like BF you can't deny CoD will win again. ;)
Truth  +   850d ago
How does it win when when you haven't played either? And most people don't consider sales=good. Look at the Snuggy, it sold tens of millions and all it is, is a backwards robe. You could probably still sell people pet rocks in this day and age.

I guess I could understand not liking flying helicopters, driving tanks, APCs, buggies, blowing up peoples hiding spots, squad based gameplay, or huge maps. But you'd probably want your IQ checked.
JeffGUNZ  +   850d ago
@ Truth

The problem is comparing these games all together. They are not meant to be truly compared. Look at BF, it's a squad based, team oriented FPS that tries to scale a whole war-battle. COD is a run and gun game which is fast and reaction based fPS. They both are fun, but comparing them just because they both are shooters is silly. They appeal to different audiences.
fattyuk  +   850d ago
wow my comment was taken to heart lol

ding ding ding round 2
unchartedxplorer  +   851d ago
A bit expected. IW didn't expect bf3 to come around last time, that was why MW3 didn't have any improvements because they didn't expect competition.
But this time they know that BF4 will be competing with them.
I hope this means they have upped the ante in terms of improvement and graphics
LordHiggens  +   851d ago
Battlefield 3...trumps COD Ghosts.
venom06  +   851d ago
wow... what a stupid a#$ article... these clowns haven't even seen ANYTHING about the graphics or gameplay from the new modern shooter from IW (and YES its ANOTHER modern shooter, using modern guns), but are already tryin to use the word "stomp"?? what a lame method for huntin for views..

Saleem101  +   851d ago
Trashy article that offers great laugh...
gedden7  +   851d ago
Look, I think the BF guys (dice) got their ears to the street on this one. They're already asking the community what they want to see in the game. BF3 was MEGA BORING because of the HUGE as maps. Seriously running around for 5 min just to find people is UNEXCEPTIONABLY bad design for MP game. Some like but not good enough close qtrs had some promise, but I'm sure the new game will have something for everyone out the box... (HOPEFULLY)

CoD on the other hand is f^cking the game up. YES granted finally they are making a new engine THANK GOD!!!!!

But the direction Ghosts might be taking may not be soo good. I heard that A "PERK" makes you go invisible. YES A PERK. Also STILL NO DESTRUCTIBLE environments just more interactive C'MON!! beside CoD devs always say that, yes the environments are more interactive.. Cop out if you ask me. ALSO WTH is gonna happen with QSing when there wont be as much lag comp and assisting? I bet the aim asisst will give some real unfair advantages or something. And to round it off we may WELCOME BACK DEATH STREAKS... WTF WHY, WHHHYY!!???

I feel as though CoD has just become a train wreck year after year and just a new engine wont help. and I'm a FAN of CoD games..
Qrphe  +   851d ago
Both CoD and Battlefield are generic. I expect BF4 to be generic as well since they're definitely going after the CoD crowd.
i8urCAKE  +   851d ago
BF4 is starting to be like COD. same shit but different toilet.
SKUD  +   851d ago
^^^^TRUE STORY^^^^

EA is to hell bent on beating COD and ruining DICE in the process.
i8urCAKE  +   851d ago
"will be set in a future setting with MODERN weapons." modern weapons... COD is trash.
FITgamer  +   851d ago
By "stomp" do they mean in sales? That's a given. Most of hardcore COD players can't handle BF's game play(What no quick scoping?! This game is gay!). So why would they buy it? If you mean stomp in the quality of the game you are wrong sir.
objdadon  +   851d ago
Cod is addictive. No matter what you think, the cod games have the right formula for fun. The matches are well timed, fast pace, and provide a good adrenaline rush! There will always be things I don't like ( target finders, over powered shotguns/pistols, lag comp. Ect.) But you keep coming back for more! Battlefield is totally different and that's fine. But it is missing the addictive formula that cod has and is the reason why they've been reluctant to make many changes game to game thru out this gen. I'll be purchasing both as always but most of my time will be with cod.
4Sh0w  +   851d ago
Well said, I hear a bunch of excuses why COD sells better but the bottom line is after playing both many like me find the COD formula much more addictive...I' d say that definitely has alot to do with quality , if you disagree then its not because COD sucks its just a matter of preference. As for the "stomp" headline thats just for hits, BF4 will sell well, Ghosts will selll extremely well, millions will enjoy both games, thats all, thats it.

Battlefield is in my opinion so much more fun when you have a group of people to play with. Call of Duty is one of those games that you can play a few quick rounds by yourself and be done with it for awhile.
GamingManiac  +   851d ago
Bahahahaaha, this made me laugh so hard!!! Unless they mean sales, and sales only this is total BS
DemonSlayer420  +   851d ago
I do think COD has had a winning formula since 2007, nothing has changed and doesn't need to, it's the next gen shooters that will be able to also run 60fps that COD needs to worry about. Once multiple devs can create the same kind of twitch shooters running 60fps on console, COD will die out. There will be tons of games just like it soon in terms of the framerate which is the core of the gameplay and why it feels so smooth compared to 30fps shooters. It will be interesting to see if BF4 runs 60FPS in 1080p on PS4, that might be some serious competition for COD, we shall soon see.
