Activision’s CEO, Eric Hirshberg, talked about their upcoming game. - PSLS
They'll need to up their game if they want to challenge TitanFall.
Competing against the team that made COD big...
What benchmark? How to use Copy and Paste when doing games?
They also have Bungie back with Destiny, KZ: Shadowfall, new Halo sometime in 2014, BF4, Titan fall like you said, and I'm guessing another FPS from Microsoft at Gamescom. Lots of competition, and Call of Duty is starting to have it's flame put out. These next 6 months are going to be insane.
looks terrible and ridiculously lame! clock ticking before you explode? whatever you do you will explode in a moment or get shot in 6 seconds?
And go up against BF 4. And up against the tons of other great games out there to choose from that aren't of the increasingly stale FPS variety.
BF is very stale, just like KZ, just like Halo. They keep the formula that works for them.
Out of all the games coming out on Next Gen COD Ghosts looks to be about the LEAST next-gen.
Exactly. How exactly is it nextgen to have all the features you put into your next game avaliable on your current gen game. Activision are too focused on making the games comparable to try and get sales on both generations and have parity between the two, that's holding COD back. The game has barely changed throughout an entire generation since MW2, reskin, change the 'create a class' system, make new maps, create new killstreak UI's, that's it. And MW2 wasn't even as good as COD4.
@slimeybrainboy Thats so true. Although i really loved MW2 and it was one of my all time favorite videogames for some reason.. But like you said, Activisions games aren't embracing and tackling next gen like ubisofts games are..
Yes! Don't you just love competition? :- )
Don't you mean Titanfail? That game won't be anywhere near as big as COD. It looks like the same old crap we've seen before except with some robots thrown in. I doubt it will the next big thing.
It looks no different than any fps. After all, if you're going to watch one gameplay trailer and say that it's nothing different without actually playing the game itself were even little details and changes like double jumps and mechs can make a very huge difference in the dynamics of the game, then you can disregard battlefield, halo, killzone etc as nothing new. All have the same fundamentals. It is the gameplay mechanics that makes the difference between those. Hell a lot of people (myself included) hated halo reach when they only added armor abilities and sprinting. It seems like no big deal and no big change on the surface, but when you play it it Makes a tremendous difference. Which is why a lot of people prefer halo 3 over reach and halo 4.
there not even blowing up preorders on amazon . most times after conferences like this u see spikes in preorders.
Which will never live up to AC4 BF.
Cod will have more competition on the fps field with titanfall, destiny and and battlefield 4 (won't regard halo 5 or killzone as a big threat as both are available on one platform) Not saying ghosts will fail or the next cod or the one after will, but if they keep rehashing yearly the cod franchise is bound to slowly burn and lose it relevance. That what pes did, they released lackluster sequel after sequel till fifa came and kicked it ass.
And Killzone SF, Battlefield 4.
COD will easily will easily win in terms of amount of game modes, guns, killstreaks and most likely replayablity. We haven't seen enough of Titanfall and if hate COD, I don't see why you would like that game as these are made by the same people. The core gameplay looks very very similar.
Well judging from today's gameplay reveal, the benchmark is in the exact same place.
looks worse than mw2 nothing new quake 3 engine from 1999
''the competition can be fierce as squad soldiers display life-like, skilled tactics and behaviors like side-strafing, corner-camping, jump-shooting and more'' Nice job introducing camping and trickshotting bots, would totally benefit the community
No, it really doesn't. http://www.gametrailers.com...
call of duty toast, its done we had some good times and some very bad times. Its time for me to say bye and say hello to destiny, planetside 2 and the division. I already know battlefield very well were good friends
Sounds like you've been courted, abd I commend you for making some new friends.
Benchmark not in graphics, Gameplay - debatable as not everyone likes the fast arcade style of cod, Physics and Engine elements - All have been seen in other games for years so they're just catching up. So I disagree very much.
Activision i wouldnt call it benchmark--- perhaps you should look at other developers games before calling it that --- titanfall, second son, even kz looked good.
ya they set the benchmark alright. The benchmark to copy & paste your previous game and call it a new game and to use the same old engine for like 9 years with no improvements made to it. I kind wish they would stay in the current gen and leave next gen to devs who actually want to make next gen great and not just carry over their copy & pasted garbage game from this gen.
So the game plays by itself?
It just occurred to me, EVERY time a new cod is released or announced, the same group of people who complain about it say, "COD IS SO DONE trolololol" and then when it once again is successful, they're like "COD SUCKS AND PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS." It's an extremely repetitive behavior.
Repetitive behavior. Ironic. Very ironic.
Yeah but at the same time, some of us own every single Call of Duty, and we are voicing our concerns, that the series is going in the wrong direction the last few years. Call of Duty has gotten smaller, and more fast paced, this is not what we want. It's like you guys are addicted to quad feeds, and watching the kill feed scroll at 600 names per second. There is no depth to the maps anymore, they are all forgetable, theres nothing epic about any of it.
Pretty sure that added environmental destruction and dynamic weather give the maps way more depth than before. -_-
Don't be fooled, this environmental destruction is scripted like Black ops 1. At the exact same time the exact same rocket takes off. Everytime player A shoots barrel B or throws C4 at wall C, the gas station falls over. Thats it for the whole map... When that sniper is hiding in the window, you should be able to lob 5 packs of C4 on the wall, and bring him and half the building down with it. Then Tea bag him, sinces its COD. Infinity Ward just isnt thinking big enough. They are playing it safe, and safe is mediocre, just like Madden.
Not saying anything about this cause half of the world feels just like me about recycled duty....
fish ai! leaning! sliding! wooohoooooooooo
Benchmark for consistent sales and complacency.
Prove it. Right now my money is on Destiny, The Division, and Witcher 3 for setting the standards for next gen.
Destiny looks great but the first one can't set a benchmark for next gen if it's on current gen
You do have a bit of a point there.
Try again, Ubisoft. Watch Dogs, AC4 BF and The Division are worlds ahead of any COD. Worlds... I bet Infamous SS will look worlds better as well.
I'll take Dogmeat over this bald retarted dog anyday.
Dogmeat will always be the one mans best friend. I miss spending time with him in the wasteland.
i'll take even giraffe meat.
I smirked because COD was at one point a benchmark for a military shooter. But now its more of an arcade type of feel to it. Imagine COD as NBA Live and Battlefield as NBA 2k.
The benchmark was set with call of duty 4 which even Activision couldn't surpass and produce a worthy sequel as fresh and innovative as cod 4 was.
What a funny story.... How many Game of the Years has COD won? Yep ZERO. Meanwhile go look at Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag on next Gen. That isworlds ahead of anything COD could ever come out with. A FPS is such anarrow mind. When you see vast open worlds of super detail like AC4BF,Watch Dogs, The Division, etc. Then you really understand the true power of next gen. But again, COD is nothing more then a circle jerk on a small map with a lot of hackers, glitchers. modded controller users and boosters.
I think the fishes are more advanced in AC4! lol
You can't compare a shooter to an open world game.
That is very true, but when you want to claim setting bench marks. You see how this game is not even on the same level at all. Total garbage.
What benchmark have they set ?? The only benchmark Activision set was with COD 4 and since then that benchmark has been nothing but the mastery of rinse and repeat, even with all the money they make from the COD series you'd think they'd have a brand new graphics engine ready for next gen.....to bad that's not the case and with other games like BF4, Destiny and The Division on the way it's gonna be one hell of a climb for ghosts just to keep up and compete.
Personally i don't think it's that impressive, it really looks like the best 30 fps games on the 7th gen console, but running at 60 fps and higher resolution.
If thats what theyre aiming for it looks like they might have missed.
Claiming your terrible game franchise set a benchmark is like me claiming I took a world record dook this morning.
