The latest Call of Duty, Ghosts, has had a flurry of details revealed about the online component...
It's safe to say most would agree that the single player element of Call of Duty isn't the main drawing factor to Activision's flogged-horse Fps. Call of Duty has always been about the multiplayer, despite some great storytelling earlier on in the series' recent run. So, it makes perfect sense that Activision should hold an elaborate multiplayer reveal for Call of Duty: Ghosts, which has seen a host of new additions and refinements to its online action, including new game modes and reworked AI.
The new modes to grace the game include Cranked, which boosts your character for a limited time after a kill. This soon ends, however, unless you kill another foe before the time runs out.
Search and Rescue works similarly to the existing mode of Search and Destroy, »
Taking to the stage in Los Angeles today, Infinity Ward and Activision lifted the lid on all things Call of Duty: Ghosts. In doing so, it gave fans the first snippet of the game’s multiplayer, while also detailing some the additional features at present in the next iteration of the Fps franchise. With 30 new weapons, 20 added killstreaks and over 20,000 possible customisation options, Mark Rubin – the studio producer at Infinity Ward – has duly labelled Ghosts as the “biggest multiplayer overhaul since Modern Warfare.”
In order to stoke the fanbase’s excitement ahead of its November Release, the developer also released the first official multiplayer trailer, which you can feast your eyes on below:
While these aforementioned additions will have trigger-happy fans chomping at the bit, the biggest surprise was the confirmation that female soldiers will also be playable in the multiplayer component of Call of Duty: Ghosts – a first for the illustrious franchise. »

Ready to do some web-slingin' on Wii U? Activision and Marvel today announced that "The Amazing Spider-Man Ultimate Edition" is swinging over to Wii U next month. Why "Ultimate Edition," you ask?

"Which movies did you enjoy the most at Sundance, Debbie?" is a line I've heard often since returning from Park City. Despite several narrative favorites, the subcategory that really stood out was music documentaries. Two of these films will screen at SXSW next month: Twenty Feet from Stardom, the first film acquired at Sundance 2013, and Sound City, produced and directed by David Grohl of The Foo Fighters and Nirvana.
The festival opened with Twenty Feet From Stardom wowing audiences onscreen and later, offscreen with special performances. Producer/director Morgan Neville is no stranger to music docs, having directed several for television including Brian Wilson: A Beach Boy's Tale, Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock'n'Roll, Johnny Cash's America, Search and Destroy: Iggy and the Stooges' Raw Power, and several American Masters and Biography series spotlighting music icons.
