Default Call of Duty: Ghosts introduces “squad mode,” women

New multiplayer features for Call of Duty: Ghosts were revealed today by Infinity Ward at an event for the game. The first reaction highlights include a “squad” mode and customizable soldiers, but the trailer above also reveals that—for the first time ever—females will be allowed in multiplayer. Female character skins, that is.

The “squad mode” will send players into multiplayer maps alongside up to 10 AI-controlled soldiers (the “squad”). The squad can be customized, and each starts with one level of prestige. Once on the map, the squad fights either with or against the human player. Players can earn experience and rank up by playing with the squads, which Infinity Ward asserts will “play like real players.”

In addition to leading or fighting their own squads, players will be able to team up and play against the squads of other offline players. Players can also take their squad to play against an AI squad. That’s right: multiplayer without multiple players.

Squad mode is only one of seven total added multiplayer modes. Another is “cranked,” which speeds a player up once they get a kill but requires them to get another kill before a timer expires. “Search and rescue mode” works like freeze tag: if a teammate dies, they drop a tag, and if another teammate touches it, the player will be resurrected.

And finally, as a kicker to the trailer, Infinity Ward will now allow players to create female soldiers, a heretofore unavailable option in Call of Duty games.
