It is almost upon us, the second coming of DLC for Infinite Warfare and this time it comes with the title "Continuum" and contains 4 new multiplayer maps. The new maps very much appear to stick with the futuristic aesthetic that the rest of the game was originally panned for, though since the games release this setting has been less of an issue.
The latest batch of maps are being released for the 2007 title Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, yes you read that right. Not only did you have to buy the game you didn't want to get Modern Warfare, you are now still having to buy all the map packs because they would not release them all at the games re-launch.
So if you feel you have not given Activision enough of your money between the yearly iterations of Call of Duty and the ever money hungry monster that is Destiny then go ahead and continue to fund their bottomless pockets. I will give credit where credit is due, Call of Duty continues to be one of the biggest franchises in gaming to date, so after years of clockwork precise releases the company knows exactly what they are doing.
Call of Duty fans should mark their calendars and prepare for Invasion, as Activision and Infinity Ward today revealed the third massive DLC Pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Launching 3rd June first, exclusively on Xbox Live for Xbox One and Xbox 360, Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion delivers four new multiplayer maps from unique locales around the world, each with hidden secrets and unique Field Orders. Invasion also includes “Episode 3: Awakening,” the next thrilling chapter in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative taking players deep into an alien underworld to discover the truth behind the Cryptid attack.
Invasion is available a la carte or as part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass, which gives fans access to all four epic Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Packs planned for release in 2014 – Onslaught, Devastation, Invasion and Nemesis.
RIP Neversoft as it has been reported today that it is to be absorbed into Infinity Ward in order to create a 'super-studio'. The official process is referred to as a 'merger' but I think we all know that Neversoft will cease to exist, it's not like the super-studio will be called Never Ward or Infinitysoft as catchy as they sound.
Neversoft was acquired by Activision in 1999 and their last full game release was in 2010 with Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. The Los Angeles-based developer was most famous for their work on the Tony Hawk's and Guitar Hero franchises although those franchises have seen better days which can be assumed to be a factor behind the merger.
Quite literally a few weeks before I joined XBLGamerhub.com I noticed a competition Game.co.uk were running on twitter to win a chance to go on an all expenses paid trip to the 2014 Call of Duty Championships in Los Angeles. You had to make a pun for the new weapon skins DLC that was due for release and being in the right place at the right time when it popped up, I entered with a pun that I thought would raise a smile if nothing else. It was a spur of the moment thing and I thought nothing more of it.
A few weeks later and up popped a message on my twitter feed... I had won. Me, going to Los Angeles, with a friend, to watch the Call of Duty Championships. I could not believe it. Before we knew it, my friend and I began our adventure last Thursday morning from Glasgow Airport. Half way across the world we would see 32 professional Call of Duty teams battle it out to be crowned champions of the world.
