'Call of Duty: Ghosts'

The much anticipated Call of Duty: Ghosts for Play Station 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC hit store shelves Nov. 5.

In the post-apocalyptic storyline of this first-person shooter, the U.S.A. is devastated and family ties are part of the strategy. Gamers will enjoy a lethal secret weapon in Riley, a German shepherd trained to attack. Players control Riley during sections of the game in which his stealth offers an advantage and adds an element of surprise. For instance, he can sneak around for recon and bark to lure enemy soldiers into the open where he can maul them.

Ghosts comes with new multiplayer features like improved character customization with thousands of combinations. For the first time in the series, players can create a female soldier. There's also new mode called "Extinction," which allows four players to work together to fight against an alien invasion. With the new Squads mode, gamers can take on AI opponents to improve their online skills.

Ghosts is Call of Duty's 10th iteration. With the launch of Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 just a few weeks away, news has leaked that buyers of the next-gen consoles won't experience the same resolution during play. According to a tweet by Mark Rubin, executive producer at Infinity Ward, the PS4 version of Call of Duty: Ghosts will run in 1080p while Xbox One buyers will have to be satisfied with 720p. This decision was made to ensure both games would run at 60FPS.
