Call of Duty "still plays in the realm of plausibility," according to Activision community manager Dan Amrich. Writing on his blog, Amrich explained that the latest trailer for Call of Duty: Ghosts--which featured combat in space--is "actually more science than science fiction."
Amrich said though the concept of kinetic bombardment--or "Rods from God"--has been used in sci-fi stories for years, it is also grounded in reality. He pointed out that the United States Air Force has considered using the technology as a means to attack without nuclear fallout.
"Say what you will about its over-the-top gameplay and action-movie attitude, but Call of Duty still plays in the realm of plausibility," Amrich said.
In the new campaign trailer for Call of Duty: Ghosts, a cylinder is shown speeding to Earth from a United States orbiting space station. A voice-over says, "You never expect something you trust to turn against you. The rods didn't just decimate the land, they left us open to full-scale invasion."
Call of Duty: Ghosts launches on November 5 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U. Versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be released as launch titles for those platforms in North America on November 15 and November 22, respectively.
