Infinity Ward has revealed new details surrounding the canine companion in Call of Duty: Ghosts, including his name: Riley.
Speaking during a Call of Duty: Ghosts pre-E3 event, Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin said that the dog in Call of Duty: Ghosts was named as a homage to Modern Warfare 2's Simon "Ghost" Riley.
Two single-player levels were also shown, "Into the Deep" and "No Man's Land." The former is an underwater mission featuring combat, and the latter took place in a forest area. Riley takes a significant role in the second level, with the player able to control the dog in a fashion similar to the land drones in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
Infinity Ward said that the hi-tech pooch is equipped with a flip-up camera, an earpiece, and two vibrating devices.
Rubin added that the team at Infinity Ward was "blown away" to the initial response to Riley on social media after Microsoft's Xbox One reveal event last month.
Footage of the Call of Duty: Ghosts single-player campaign, including Riley, can currently be found on CallofDuty.com.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 5. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will follow.
