Gaming Update: 'CoD,' 'Deus Ex,' and 'Destiny'

Watch trailers for 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' Squads mode and 'Destiny,' and get ready for a new series of games based on the 'Deus Ex' franchise—at STACK Gamer.

Last week, Activision offered a look at the Squads mode of CoD: Ghosts, Eidos Montreal announced Deus Ex: Universe, and Bungie took us to the moon with the latest trailer for Destiny. You can watch the trailer below.

The latest trailer for Call of Duty: Ghosts introduces gamers to the game's much-hyped Squads multiplayer modes. Watch the video above.

Squads features four multiplayer modes—Squad vs. Squad, Wargame, Safeguard and Squad Assault, each of which allows you to create a team of AI-controlled soldiers. Squads aims to transform the way gamers think about the multiplayer experience. With Squad vs. Squad, players and members of their AI team battle another player and his or her team. In Wargame, you and your AI soldiers face a team of bots. Safeguard is a co-op survival mode, in which you test your skills against waves of AI enemies. Squad Assault allows you and five others (either AI teammates or other players) to take on an offline player's six-person AI squad.

Deus Ex: Universe Announced

Eidos Montreal is preparing to bring out another set of Deus Ex titles. Under the banner of Deus Ex Universe, the new games will be released for PC and next generation consoles, with plans to expand to other platforms such as mobile devices and tablets.

"The concept behind Deus Ex Universe is to create an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games," wrote Eidos Montreal exec David Anfossi.

Production of the new games has begun, but it's too soon to announce a release date. However, the studio has released a new trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut—tweaked to address a few issues and improve the AI. It will be released Oct. 22 for PS3, Wii U, PC and Xbox 360.

New Trailer for Destiny Goes to the Moon

The latest look at Destiny takes us to the moon and offers a glimpse at one of the four alien species we must annihilate. In this sci-fi shooter, players become members of one of three humanoid races—Hunter, Titan and Warlock—all charged with guarding earth's lone remaining city and fighting against an alien infestation.

The game still doesn't have a firm release date. But to placate fans, Bungie and publisher Activision have announced that gamers who pre-order the game via certain retailers will get access to the upcoming beta version. The beta is expected to go live in the first quarter of 2014. Destiny will be released for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

For the list of retailers offering the Destiny Beta redemption codes, visit www.destinythegame.com/wheretobuy. If you have a code, don't forget to secure your place in the Destiny Beta queue by going to bungie.net/beta. If you pre-ordered the game before Oct. 1, you were automatically entered into the Beta and should receive your nine-digit entry code soon.
