Call of Duty: Ghosts Extinction mode confirmed

1-4 player cooperative mode has squads of soldiers battling against aliens.

by

Activision today announced Extinction mode for Call of Duty: Ghosts, after images and video from the mode appeared this weekend.

Extinction mode is an all-new 1-4 player cooperative mode that is said to offer a "unique blend" of survival action, base defense, scavenging, and class-leveling.

Atrailer for the Extinction mode (below) shows squads of soldiers laying waste to alien enemies in a dilapidated city. Multiple alien variants are shown.

The Extinction mode for Call of Duty: Ghosts adds to the game's single-player campaign, standard head-to-head multiplayer mode, and Squads mode.

Call of Duty: Ghosts launches on November 5 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will be released as launch titles later in the month.

Seriously this game has more modes than 3 games combined and it has so many new things but ppl keep saying its the 'same' every year... name one sequel that has the changes that cod does... keep hating CoD for once agqin will be the king of the genre.

Look, I understand if don't like call of duty, but don't hate people that do enjoy the game. The game industry is an entertainment business, and if people are buying call of duty, then so be it. People buy games for personal enjoyment; and at the same time I respect someone's negative opinion about the game, but again, if you hate somebody who plays it then that only shows insecurity in yourself.

there is no other game coming out for a while that has so many options to choose from. Whether it is squad mode, single player, multiplayer, extinction, or so on... for me, after a long day at work, I like the ability to choose something to fit the mood I'm in, but that is just my opinion. so haters, if you want to hate the game, I have no problem with that. Just don't hate the people who want to play the game and who enjoy it for what it is, ENTERTAINMENT.

if you ever want to hunt and kill all the stupid people in the world in some cleansing holocaust with little effort. just post a CoD or Microsoft article like this and catch them while they're flooding in to bash and troll blindly in the comment section. hate the haters

Survival action sounds good to me.

First zombies, now aliens. The next CoD is either going to have vampires, ninjas or pirates.

So I only looked at the one picture at the tope but immediately thought if the COD characters were on massive steroids then it'd be a good gears sequel.

So does this or does this not have local co-op or are all these modes online co-op only?

Seems pretty uninteresting. I cant see this being any different from zombies.The  multiplayer will always be the bread and butter. Even as entertaining as zombies "could" be, it was only fun for so long before it got extremely boring. Ill give it a chance though maybe it will surprise me, I just highly doubt it

Jesus what is wrong with Activision heart beat sensors, Mini UAV's with machine guns, giant robots, Dogs and now fucking Aliens, seriously instead of making the gameplay innovative you give us this scifi shit instead, what ever happened to COD 4 Modern warfare i.e. arcadified realism, Why not just change your name to Gears of War and be done with it !

It's cool that IW is adding it's own take on horde mode, but lets be honest they have borrowed this idea from Treyarch haven't they? I would rather have seen more innovative spec ops missions with an upped player count.

As for Battlefield I'd like to see the Onslaught mode from Bad Company 2 return at some point as that offered some really good coop play; at the very least it was better than Battlefield 3 only having 6 missions with 1 being vehicle based.

Might be decent. Honestly, spec ops was the best part of MW3.

This looks cool. I hope it's a detailed game mode with character customization and not just "hey here are aliens and a basic objective! Now shoot!" Based on the images I saw it seems like it is rather in depth so fingers crossed

@endorbr 

For starters...Zombies was Treyarch. This is Infinity Ward.  If it were anyone else you'd be on your knees praises them for being so revolutionary and innovative.  Hypocrite

@endorbr It's very innovative *rolls eyes*.  Could the popularity of zombies finally be declining please.  I'm sick of seeing kids play zombie.

@de-astroturfer Arcadified wasn't enough, people want ridiculously unrealistic :).

I'm not a soldier or any kind of law enforcement, but in shooters I like to at least think I'm applying slightly realistic methods and tactics to accomplish my goals in game.  That's why I never liked an increasing arsenal of more and more flashy super high tech stuff.

@de-astroturfer actually cod has been bad since MW3 yet these modes really save the series every year right now i'm only getting ghosts cuz of this mode after i saw the trailer

@KamikazeDonut 

Highly unlikely, there is just no way Activision would use up all three ideas on one game :P

@foxrock66 @kellian1 That's good to hear...I've been searching and haven't been able to find anything about it. Thanks for the info!

@vduong942 @de-astroturfer Seriously you can't think of anything yourself ?!?! Run from point A to point B shoot endless respawning enemies press X next to flashy box, run from point  B to point C, is not exactly innovative is it, theres clearly plenty of room for improvement, take a game like the original Halflife single player campaign, had more innovation and interesting gameplay than COD has had in the entire series. and at least Halflife had the excuse of being scifi to begin with.

@youlabe @de-astroturfer im getting ghost cause of the campaign - looks beautiful, polished multiplayer - lots of fun, and the new squads mode

@de-astroturfer @vduong942 not in that sentence did you name me a single innovation for Cal Of Duty. I just proved that Military Shooters like Call Of Duty have little room for innovation. Plus, you didn't even mention the campaign of Call of Duty. It's similar to Half Life 2, the only difference is that it's shorter, the story isn't as good, and it has less Sci-Fi
