Today I watched the live reveal of the Multiplayer aspect of the game. And I must say that I am exited for its launch. Even if I cannot afford a copy on the first day. The ability to make a soldier instead of just a class is the biggest plus in my book. And to all my Female Voyage viewers out there you an even play a female character in the game.
They are dropping the number of air based kill streaks. I am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, as I do tend to knock out the enemy UAV with a rocket launcher. I am excited to see more of the ground based drone that replaces the UAV.
They got rid of death streaks, that is a good thing.
The dynamic environments is a interesting thing that I noted. The fact that the environment can change is nothing really new to gamming, not even to the Call of Duty series of games. But the fact that you can change a area by blowing up a gas station does make a interesting change to the Call of Duty series.
I do like the new game modes:
- Cranked, where every kill makes you faster, but going longer then 30 seconds without a kill, will kill you.
- Search and Rescue, a lot like Search and Destroy,, where your team can revive you by picking up your tag or enemies can deny the revive by doing the same.
- Squads, where you and a squad compete against the AI or other players. I do not remember if your squad is other players or the AI.
I also like the fact that it will come out for both the PS3 and PS4 with the ability to transfer your Multiplayer across the the different generations of systems.
