Call Of Duty: Ghosts Is £19.99 On PC At SimplyCDKeys

Call Of Duty: Ghosts | SimplyCDKeys | £19.99 (save £7)
PC Price Comparison

Call Of Duty: Ghosts isn't as forward-thinking as we'd have liked (especially in terms of its nonsensical campaign, which Black Ops II somewhat puts to shame), but there's no denying that its mental multiplayer is still great fun. SimplyCDKeys will email you a PC Steam key for a shade under £20, which is a decent saving if you're looking to get involved. Thanks to imdurc @ HUKD!

Amrich Hits Back At Despicable Trolls Following Black Ops II Gun Tweaks

'This Is Why The World Doesn't Take Gaming Seriously'

The latest round of Black Ops II rebalancing fractionally increased the kill time of certain weapons, but Treyarch have subsequently suffered "threats of violence" and personal abuse via email, Twitter and forum posts from disgruntled players. Community man Dan Amrich has stepped up to decry the "immature, whiny assholes" behind the hateful torrent, suggesting that their behaviour is responsible for perpetuating negative gamer stereotypes.

Infinity Ward: Call Of Duty Ghosts Engine Is 'Significantly Upgraded,' Not Entirely New

Despite describing Call Of Duty: Ghosts' engine as "all-new" in the initial press releases, Infinity Ward has stated that it's instead been heavily upgraded from their existing tech, and packs enough sweeping improvements to legitimately be referred to as a brand-new.

Comparison Video Pits Call Of Duty: Ghosts Against Modern Warfare 3

Infinity Ward have released a portion of their Xbox One reveal presentation that demonstrates the advances Call Of Duty: Ghosts makes over Modern Warfare 3 in terms of graphical grunt. The newly unveiled shooter uses a new next-generation (cross-generation, technically) engine that finally makes motion-captured dogs a reality.

Call Of Duty: Ghosts is dated for November 5th on current-gen consoles and PC, while it's also confirmed for PS4 and Xbox One. You can watch the reveal trailer and dev diary through the link.

Mo-Capped Dogs Confirmed

Call Of Duty: Ghosts took to the Xbox One stage to reveal our first look at their next-generation engine, which seems to do a fantastic job of handling foliage and facial expressions (the latter of which is odd for a game about "masked warriors," but hey ho). Infinity Ward promise that it will be the "best" and "most emotional" Call Of Duty game to date, with writing duties falling to Stephen Gaghan (Traffic, Syriana).

Fans React To Call Of Duty: Ghosts Footage On Slow News Day
Some Australian Call Of Duty fans were shown a snippet of Call Of Duty: Ghosts footage, and apparently got rather excited. Watch below for insightful critique and commentary, like "sick" and "that's scary."

Why yes, it is a slow news day today, thanks for asking. Mainly because of that great big next-gen reveal event scheduled for 18:00, during which we'll presumably get to see that footage ourselves. However, if they're actually running live code on that MACBOOK, this might be one of today's biggest stories...

Black Ops II Double Weapon XP Event Kicks Off This Weekend

Treyarch have announced that the next double weapon XP event will be kicking off this weekend for Black Ops II. With the Uprising DLC landing on PC and PS3 this week, it's certainly a timely little treat.

“Don’t even think about resting those thumbs, because Double Weapon XP weekend is coming this Friday, May 17, starting at 10am/PDT and running though Monday, May 20 at 10am/PDT," read the in-game message.

Black Ops II: Uprising DLC Review | Whole Liotta Fun

Platforms: Xbox 360 (reviewed, 1200 MSP) | PC | PS3

Developer: Treyarch

Publisher: Activision

It's increasingly fashionable to rail against Call Of Duty and everything it stands for, but despite a few predictable grievances, millions of players still flock to its enjoyable blend of skill, uncomplicated fun and rampant spectacle to unwind after a long day. It's interesting, then, that the latest map pack for Black Ops II favours the latter. In an effort to give players something interesting to look at beyond wartorn streets, Uprising goes heavy on gimmicks, bells and whistles, offering four maps and a new Zombie level that all feature a unique 'thing.' Whether you're dodging through lava, stomping across a miniature city that makes you feel like a giant or punting zombies into a demonic maw as Ray Liotta, there's no denying that Uprising is gun fun on a bun.

If you've fallen out of love with Call Of Duty, don't regularly play Black Ops II or spend your days whining about there being "too many shooters" without making the effort to enjoy the cornucopia of different genres out there (you know who you are), there's nothing for you here. But if you're still enjoying Treyarch's blockbuster, Uprising is going to be a welcome breath of fresh air over the coming months.

Black Ops II: Uprising DLC Trailer Confirms Pirates, Aliens & Zombie Mobsters

Treyarch have confirmed the existence of Black Ops 2's second DLC pack. Uprising, with a behind-the-scenes trailer. It's recklessly silly stuff, including new maps set in a Hollywood soundstage with dinosaurs and flying saucers galore, and a new zombie adventure that sees legendary actors taking on Zombies in Alcatraz. Details, blurb and the all-important footage below.

I tried to make a Frankie Goes To Hollywood pun with 'Frank Woods,' but ran out of caffeinated coffee. I've given you all the pieces, so I'm sure you can do something with them.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II | £35 | Asda | PS3 / 360

This might be as cheap as it gets for Black Ops II for a while as COD titles are notoriously slow to drop in price. With most sites still selling for at least £40 this is a good deal. Late Christmas shoppers may be able to take advantage of Asda's free Click and Collect Service to reserve the game online and pick up from their nearest store. Much of the game takes place in the near future, which means high-tech guns and drones are at your disposal. The story is one of the strongest we've seen in a Call of Duty game yet and narrative and gameplay choices also feature for the first time in the series.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II | £32.99 | GAME | Xbox 360

Is it the best Call of Duty title in years? Well, that rather depends. We certainly found Blops II to be one of the most refreshingly ambitious games in the series to date, and one that marked the moment that Treyarch truly stepped out from Infinity Ward's shadow and knocked it out of the park. Cracking spot from HeCTiC @ HUKD.

Black Ops II Xbox 360 & PC Patches Now Live [UPDATE]

Dragonfires & Escort Drones Get Fixed

A new title update for Call Of Duty: Black Ops II's Xbox 360 version went live yesterday, and Treyarch have finally gotten around to releasing the patch notes. The update includes major fixes to "flight range parameters" that caused issues with Dragonfire and Escort Drone scorestreaks, alongside other niggles. We've got the patch notes after the break.

Brendan awarded Treyarch's effort 8/10 in our Black Ops II review, suggesting that "existing party favourites, deathmatch options and shiny futuristic boomsticks will make this your new favourite online FPS."

UPDATE: Treyarch has also revealed patch notes for yesterday's PC update, which sorts out a couple of singleplayer glitches and adds FOV options.
