  • Massive COD Ghosts Ban wave Will Not Be Reversed

    cod ghosts banwave

    Dozens of players are reporting that they have just been banned from playing Call of Duty Ghosts in what looks to be the biggest ban wave the game has ever seen.

    When connecting to servers for the first time after loading the game, banned players will be notified that they have been permanently banned due to a violation in the security and enforcement policy.

    The ban wave seems to have mainly targeted both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 3, but the main reason for why players have been banned seems to be unclear. Whether or not it's related to cheating or using unfair exploits has not yet been revealed by Activision, but it seems some players are stating they have played legitimately and have been caught up in the whole commotion.

    Some players seem to believe that they have unknowingly entered a hacked lobby and then backed out to avoid getting caught up with cheaters. Unfortunately this is something that players cannot avoid, as they are directed to the lobbies via the in-game matchmaking mechanic. If this is true, Activision will most likely work on fixing those that have been banned unfairly. The trouble is, most real cheaters will probably not admit that they have cheated, and it may end up with thousands of players complaining about being banned, even if a large portion of banned players did deserve it.

    If you got banned unfairly, expect quite a long waiting time before you get unbanned, however some players are already getting unbanned at the time of writing.

  • New COD Ghosts Xbox One Update Affecting FPS Performance

    COD Ghosts Performance

    Usually, patches are made to fix things, but sometimes they end up creating more problems than there were in the first place. This seems to be the case with Call of Duty Ghosts on the Xbox One, which recently had an update pushed to the game that has caused some performance issues.

    Seeing as FPS and video quality was pretty much the big topic around the time of Call of Duty Ghost’s release, I could imagine that this will be quite a heavy blow for any Xbox fans out there, while PlayStation fans don't need to worry.

    I’m on neither side of the fence, and would happily enjoy playing on either console if there were games out there to make it worthwhile. However, this new patch has definitely not made playing COD Ghosts on the Xbox One worthwhile, and I feel bad for all of the people that have already paid full price for the Xbox One copy of the game, and maybe even more on top of that for DLC or season passes.

    So far, the frame rate on the Xbox One has been pretty smooth, but this new update that has been put in place to prepare the game for the upcoming Onslaught DLC has caused some issues, and you may now notice anywhere between a slight frame drop to a huge drop to half of the original frame rate in some areas.

    The frames seem to be most affected when you aim down sniper scopes or your iron sight, and drop down to an average of 30-35 FPS. This may not be a small enough frame rate for us to see the lagginess clearly, but whilst playing you’ll certainly notice the sudden drop in frames, and it’s really gonna mess up your games.

    No details have been given by Infinity Ward or Activision on whether these issues will be fixed anytime soon.

  • Two New Assassin's Creed Projects Launching in 2014?

    Well I don't think fans would really mind if Assassin's Creed took a year off. The fact that a lot of them were not happy with the idea of Assassin's Creed 4 coming out so quickly was subdued because the game was good, but fear is rising that this franchise is turning into Call of Duty.

    AssassinsCreedBut lo behold, recent rumors suggest that Ubisoft might not be just coming out with one, but two Assassin's Creed installments for 2014. One of the games are supposedly being developed just for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U while the other is being developed for the PS4 and Xbox One. In addition to that, the franchise is supposedly attempting a "massive re-scope" which could mean that they are going to change up how the entire story is going to head.

    Considering that the open world gameplay of AC4 which got most of the credit while the story sticking to the usual formula got most of the flak, it seems that Ubisoft might indeed be thinking that change is due. In the middle they even had a survey asking if players wanted an open world sailing and exploration game, without the need to connect Assassin's Creed core story.

    For now it seems that we might see some changes coming in the future, and this might be a way they hope to avoid the entire dilemma COD is facing right now. Other than that, it could just be that Ubisoft will be coming out with one game, but two different versions for current and next-gen consoles. Only time will tell what to really expect.

  • COD Ghosts Current Gen Version will have Limitations

    Despite many of the launch titles being available for both current generation and next generation consoles, it's looking like Infinity Ward and Activision are having to make some sacrifices to the current generation version of Call of Duty Ghosts to ensure things run smoothly.

    Thanks to a new leaked image of the back cover for the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty Ghosts, we now have found out that the online multiplayer will only feature up to 6 versus 6 combat, with the largest games only having a total of 12 players, instead of the standard 18 seen in previous COD games.

    On the next gen version and the PC version of Call of Duty Ghosts, the 18 player standard is present, so it looks as if sacrifices have had to be made. Although we haven't seen a PlayStation 3 copy of the game, it's likely that PS3 will only support up to 12 players online as well.

    The leaked image also gives us information on the mandatory download for COD Ghosts on the Xbox 360. Luckily, it will only take up 3GB of storage space, which means that even if you don't have a hard drive, you'll still be able to install the game onto your hard drive and play the full game once you've cleared a little space.

    It will be interesting to see what other sacrifices have had to be made to make sure Call of Duty Ghosts run smoothly on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Details are quite sparse at the moment, but I'm sure we'll notice a difference once the game releases.

  • Huge COD Ghosts Multiplayer Info Leak after Early Retail Units Sent Out

    When developing content that will be available to millions of people upon its release, it becomes very difficult to manage and stop content from leaking out before its planned release date.

    Activision and Infinity Ward have been pretty generous leading up to the Call of Duty Ghosts launch and have given us a lot of information on the upcoming game, however despite this, leaks and information on the game are spreading out all over the place, and the cause of this seems to be that some lucky people have been able to get hold of a copy COD Ghosts before its launch in November, and thanks to these people, we now have pretty much everything we could want to know about the multiplayer.

    Below you can see a summary of the content available on the Call of Duty Ghosts online multiplayer, thanks to various leaks throughout the internet.

  • Different CoD: Ghosts Editions Announced

    If you're into collecting limited edition games at launch, you may be interested in the different COD Ghost game editions that will be available for purchase.

    Whilst these aren't 100% confirmed by anyone working on Call of Duty Ghosts, it is quite likely that these retailer descriptions are the real deal and we will be seeing these packs available soon across the globe.

    So far people will be able to buy the standard edition of the game, the prestige edition and the hardened edition.

    The standard edition simply includes the game, whilst the other two editions include both physical and digital content.

    The Hardened Edition includes:

    -Military style Paracord Strap
    -Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass
    -Extra multiplayer map: Freefall
    -Ghosts Badge Pack with extra accessories to use in-game
    -Call of Duty Digital: Ghosts digital soundtrack
    -Call of Duty: Ghosts Steelbook collectors edition case

    The Prestige Edition includes:

    -1080p HD camera (memory card, various fasteners and rechargeable)
    -Military style Strap Paracord
    -Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass
    -Extra multiplayer map: Freefall
    -Ghosts Badge Pack with extra accessories to use in-game
    -Call of Duty Digital: Ghosts digital soundtrack
    -Call of Duty: Ghosts Steelbook collectors edition case

    I'm not sure why the Prestige edition includes a HD camera and what exactly that has to do with COD ghosts, but over the Hardened edition, that really is the only difference between the two limited edition versions.

  • Infinity Ward 'Teases' Fans With Multiplayer Reveal Event Reveal Trailer

    So last week we let you know about an upcoming Call of Duty Ghosts multiplayer reveal trailer. Well today the trailer has hit, and I've got to say i'm more than disappointed. Not because the multiplayer shown was lackluster or boring, but simply because the trailer that was shown didn't actually show any game play at all.

    Instead, we've been given a 36 second video that announces a few events that will take place across the world where we'll actually see the multiplayer in action.

    The first event will be August 15th, so although that date isn't too far away and we'll finally be able to see some actual gameplay footage, this new reveal trailer hasn't done the new Call of Duty: Ghosts game any favors.

    It would have seen some gameplay to hype us up for the release, and to be honest this new reveal or announcement trailer or whatever it is really only let players of the series down.

    Hopefully Infinity Ward can surprise us with something new and exciting on August 15th, because at the moment many gamers are complaining that the COD series is getting too old and repetitive.

    They'll have to be something new and spectacular in the new Call of Duty if Infinity Ward want to stay ahead of DICE's Battlefield 4.

  • Call of Duty Ghosts may Have 'Squads' Mode

    Although we've seen a bit about Call of Duty Ghosts, most of the game has been kept under wraps. Seeing as it's a Call of Duty game it's quite easy to take a guess at what's definitely making it to the game, such as a leveled campaign, and an online multiplayer with a ranking system- most likely the same prestige system from previous Call of Duty games like Black Ops 2.

    However, when it comes to new additions to the game, we're all out of guesses. It'll be interesting to see what game changes are implemented on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions compared to the current console generations.

    To keep us interested till the release of COD Ghosts, executive producer of Call of Duty Ghosts, Mark Rubin, has released a quick sneak peak at what looks to be a new game mode for the upcoming COD game.

    The peak is a small six second video that shows a quick look at the menu. The menu seems similar to the one found in Black Ops 2 and has a few options for 'Squads.'

    Previously Infinity Ward has stated that Call of Duty Ghosts will have a co-operative mode of sort, so perhaps Squads could be a brand new co-op game mode similar to the spec ops missions seen on older games like Modern Warfare 2.

    For those too impatient for release to find out just what Squads is, we may hear more about it this month in Infinity Ward's previously announced multiplayer reveal. It'll be interesting to see if they reveal any unique methods of play utilizing the Ps4 controller's touch pad.

  • New Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode Soon to Be Available for Borderlands' third Playthrough

    New Mode for Borderlands

    When you reach the highest level in Call of Duty multiplayer, you don't think twice about prestiging, and starting back at square one can be an entertaining challenge. But when a similar option is available in an RPG game that can take up to a hundred hours of gameplay to fully complete a first playthrough, it seems like a strange option to take.

    However, many hardcore Borderlands 2 players did go through a second playthrough in Gearbox's True Vault Hunter mode after reaching level 50 for the first time, and some reached all the way to level 50 once again.

    Gearbox have recently announced a third tier to your playthrough which will up gameplay difficulty, and will require you to reach level 50 on both the first playthrough and the second True Vault Hunter playthrough.

    The third playthrough has been named 'The Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode' and will be included into the game in an upcoming free downloadable content pack.

    The gameplay will be increased in difficulty by giving all enemies roughly four times as much health, and all enemies will have health regeneration skills. However, to make up for the increased difficulty, all Slag weapons will do an extra 3x damage, and weapon switching will be sped up to allow quicker switching to Slag weapons.

    What are your opinions on the Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode? Would you sit through another 50 to 100 hours of the game?
