Call of Duty: Ghosts pre-order includes 'Free Fall' dynamic map as bonus
Activision is tempting gamers with a free multiplayer map as an incentive to pre-order Call of Duty: Ghosts. By simply pre-ordering the game prior to its November 5th launch, you'll receive the Free Fall bonus map, which features the "new dynamic map event mechanic."
"Free Fall ushers in the first details on how players will encounter the changing environments in the leading multiplayer experience on consoles," a brief description reads.
At first glance, dynamic maps appear to be Call of Duty's answer to Battlefield 4's Levolution. The shattered skyscraper in which the map takes place in is on the brink of collapse. As the match progresses, the ruined skyscraper will continue to fall, with its shockwaves causing further destruction, "disrupting sightlines and constantly evolving paths and chokepoints as the map changes in real-time."
"Dynamic map events change the way players approach the game, and Free Fall does a great job illustrating this new mechanic," said Mark Rubin, executive producer at Infinity Ward. "As the match progresses, the geometry of the world continues to change and players need to adjust on the fly or else.
"It's a really fun new feature that adds layers of strategy and constantly evolving gameplay options for players. And this is just one of the many new approaches we're putting into Ghosts' multiplayer across the board. There's so much more that we look forward to sharing in the weeks to come."
Call of Duty: Ghosts is set to release on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on November 5th. It will also be available on the Xbox One and the PS4 later this year.
