Call Of Duty: Ghosts Is Overhauling How It Handles ClansBy: Zach Walton - October 10, 2013
Clans are an integral part of any multiplayer FPS experience. As such, Call of Duty: Ghosts will obviously integrate clan support into its multiplayer component. The game will be introducing some new elements to its clan support though.
Check out how Clans is an integral part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts’ multiplayer experience. This year introduces new breakthroughs, including the Call of Duty Clan Wars game experience, and cross-platform Clans — where players can now join a Clan with friends regardless of whether they play on Xbox, PlayStation or Windows PC, and level-up their Clan to earn exclusive unlocks and multiplayer XP bonuses.
The big addition here is cross-platform clan support. Most clans are still probably going to all be on the same platform, but it’s nice to know that players on one platform can help out clan members on another platform. It would be even nicer if Infinity Ward could add cross-platform play, but that’s a pipe dream that will never happen until the traditional console dies.
It’s pretty obvious that Infinity Ward is overhauling clan support in an attempt to make Call of Duty more desirable within the eSport community. It just might work too as more and more people hop on Twitch and other streaming platforms to watch multiplayer matches.
If you’re interested in setting up a clan, you have until October 25 to create or reserve a clan name at Call of Duty’s official clan site. Activision will release an official Call of Duty app on November 5 that will help you keep track of your clan’s progress and set up matches against other clans.[Image: CALLOFDUTY/YouTube]
