Call of Duty: Ghosts Boxart For PlayStation 4 Lists Offline Play As A Feature

Call of Duty: Ghosts is an upcoming new addition to the Call of Duty franchise by Activision. Ever since the DRM drama by Microsoft for the Xbox One which entailed it to have an online verification check of 24 hours to play games on the system and with its competitor imposing no such type of DRM, seems like publishers are trying to clarify it crystal clearly on the PlayStation 4, by listing offline playability as a feature. (Activision, Call of Duty: Ghosts, PS4)

remote play also :-D

Remote Play is a feature the competition doesn't have, what's the problem with it?

Listing offline on the other hand is questionable ...but since the always-online fiasco on the Xbox it's probably not that wrong.
ShinMaster  +   321d ago
Either it means offline multiplayer/co-op.
Or it's taking a stab at Microsoft, suggesting you'll never need an internet connection to play on PS4.

Probably the first one.

Is the headline right? It says 'online optional'. Surely that suggests singleplayer is the focus.

That's an interesting approach. I hope this is indicative of the industry getting back to focusing on single player more and not just throwing together some arbitrary narrative. Online is obviously important to a lot of people but my personal preferences are singleplayer, and I know I'm not alone in that.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the SP campaign of Call of Duty starting from Modern Warfare. Infinity Ward really knew how to blend in action and FPS narrative. I also enjoyed BlackOps's SP campaign although can't say the same for Black Ops 2.

I'm really looking forward to the SP campaign of Ghosts as IW really set the bar high in FPS narratives and action sequences and set pieces ofcourse.

I liked Black Ops' singleplayer, but I never cared for any Modern Warfare singleplayer. It's just all action and nothing interesting.
vigilante_man  +   321d ago
Gotta agree with Nick_515 about MW. I played MW2 and the single player was the most confusing story-less game I have ever completed. It was a mesh of multi-player maps threaded together.

I prefer a great single-player game with the best environments then used for multi-player..

Wait what!? 1-2 players?

Every cod on console so far has had 1-4.. :/

Nextgen is really anti-local multiplayer
ZodTheRipper  +   321d ago
I noticed that earlier today when watching Extinction mode gameplay! It's really just 2 players.
This is a deal breaker for me to be honest, I've always bought CoD's primarily for their 4 player offline modes.

Eurogamer says the 360 version has 4 player offline play and 2 player co-op. hoping it follows for next gen or I just may get the current gen version
tdogchristy90  +   321d ago
It started with this gen which was a letdown. To play say mw3 or bf3 you needed to LAN consoles or go online. Halo was the only one I can think of it have local 4 player. So next gen going further into this is sad. I miss the old simple days.
Master-H  +   321d ago
Umm i'm pretty sure you can play mw3 offline split screen with 4 players, i've done it before, all the past cods have this, would suck if ghosts doesnt, i usually play split screen on the weekends with friends.
GraveLord  +   321d ago
Hopefully this was just because of the next-gen rush.
Starbucks_Fan  +   321d ago
WTF?! No 4 players?! That's f***ing stupid.
Sevir  +   321d ago
Remote Play! :) Dat Remote Play... I'm not getting COD:Ghosts, but I have to admit seeing games having Remote play built in shows that Sony has finally got it right with the PS4.
MajorAly  +   321d ago
Well PlayStation 4 was built from the ground up to have harmonic integration with PS Vita and seeing how Mark Cerny was the lead architect on both, it is not surprising and only shows how PS Vita is really a great platform itself.
Popcorn has finished and ready to be served.

I forgot this game is coming to PS4. Honestly, IF I buy it, I'll buy it on PS3. Crap Ops crashed my PS3 to the point of sending it out to Sony so I won't let it touch my precious PS4. I do have to wonder the control scheme on PS4 though since the triggers are now triggers. Did they change it from L1/R1 to them? That would be cool with me!

Game looks good for a Call of Duty game, but Call of Duty looks meh for my gaming anymore. Seriously, the quality seems to decrease every year, but increase in price. Now it's $120 a year for this game. Everyone bitched about COD having a subscription, but alot of people fail to realize Call of Duty IS the subscription. I don't really like the direction this series has been and is still going towards.

Sad, sad thing that gaming's become.

Remote play caught my eye ;)
DEEBO  +   321d ago
remote play is on every game that doesn't use the camera.

It also says
" really you wasted your on money on this turd again ? "
in 4pt type so it's barely visible.
spicelicka  +   321d ago
All fps games on nex-gen should have split-screen if they have online, whether it's co-op or multiplayer.

I don't understand why battlefield refuses to incorporate split-screen, it's such BS and frankly a step backwards. When my friends and I get together we only have 2 choices in FPS games, COD or Halo. Cod does a good job of incorporating it, halo does it the best.
Sevir  +   321d ago
Ugh, Split screan Drops the visuals. Im good with no split screan. I much prefer drop in drop out coop on the fly.
spicelicka  +   321d ago
Whatt?? Having split-screen doesn't exclude having drop in drop out co-op, they're two independent features.

I don't understand how having split-screen has any affect on drop in drop out coop, you don't have to use split-screen if you don't want obviously, the visual drop only occurs while using that feature so why do you even care? It's an option for people when they get together.

It's existed since N64 days and the visual drop has never been a big deal. And besides, with all the power nex-gen systems are boasting, if they can't handle split-screen they're pathetic.
bromtown  +   321d ago
Maybe we'll get dual screen with the Vita for couch co-op.
Bigc32  +   321d ago
Well at least we have 1080 lol
farqy  +   321d ago
I think this is a false alarm some games are online only. This is just clarifying that it is both has nothing to do with DRM.

Sweet can't wait
