For the first time since the series launched, Call of Duty is looking closer than ever to the edge. The edge of what, I’m not sure, as I can’t envision the next game taking in any less than a billion dollars and destroying whichever previous records it’s set. Nevertheless, gamers are sensing that Activision needs to step their game up to keep the series from stagnating, especially with titles such as Titanfall stepping into the FPS ring.
One thing is clear: the yearly tradition of Call of Duty DLC must go on. Last month, Activision released the Onslaught DLC pack, the first of four, for Call of Duty: Ghosts. It’s made up of four new multiplayer maps, a story-driven level for Extinction mode, and a new dual-purpose weapon. Let’s see how they fare.
