Time to clear out the hard drive: Call of Duty: Ghosts require 40GB of storage space on PC

Developer Infinity Ward has continually said that the next Call of Duty game is going to offer “one of the best Call of Duty experiences ever.” What they are saying today is that it’s also one of the largest … in terms of minimum required hard-drive space.
Infinity Ward released the minimum system requirements for its upcoming shooter Call of Duty: Ghosts on PC. The game hits Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on Nov. 5. Those requirements revealed that the game will need a whopping 40GB of hard-drive storage in order to install.
That’s not a suggestion or “recommended system requirement” — it is the bare minimum, and it is before any inevitable downloadable content.
Take a look at the full minimum requirements for Call of Duty: Ghosts:

- Operating system: Windows 7 64-Bit or Windows 8 64-Bi
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ or AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
- Memory: 6GB RAM
- Hard-drive space: 40GB
- Video card: Nvidia GeForce GTS 450/ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
Note that the game requires 6GB of RAM. That means it will only work in 64-bit versions of Windows.
I think Infinity Ward is trying to tell us all to upgrade our old rigs.
We’ve reached out to Infinity Ward and publisher Activision to ask how large the digital versions of Call of Duty: Ghosts are for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Ghosts hits those next-gen systems when they debut on Nov. 15 (PS4) and Nov. 22 (Xbox One).

Call of Duty
WE ARE ALL WE'VE GOT. This new chapter in the Call of Duty® franchise features a fresh dynamic, where players are on the side of a crippled nation, fighting not for freedom, or liberty, but simply to survive. Special Operations forces, a mysterious group known only as "Ghosts", lead the battle against a newly-emerged, technologically-superior, global power.
In Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer, customize your soldier and squad for the first time. Level environments are more realistic and immersive than ever before.
CREATE-A-SOLDIER. In Call of Duty®: Ghosts you don't just create a class, you create a soldier. Choose the head, body type, head-gear and equipment, and you can even create a female soldier for the first time. With over 20,000 possible combinations, you can create the soldier you've always wanted. And each soldier you create will also have his or her own load outs.
KILL STREAKS, ADVANCED WEAPONRY & PERKS
There are over 20 NEW Kill Streaks in Call of Duty®: Ghosts — such as Juggernaut Maniac, Helo-Scout, Vulture and the ODIN Strike. You can even bring in Riley, from the single-player campaign, as your guard dog to warn you and attack when enemies are near. Scorestreaks are back, and can now be customized – to alter performance attributes or increase the power of a particular streak. The new Perks System has a value from 1 to 5, and you have 8 points to allocate. You could also choose to get rid of your secondary weapon and get up to 11 perks.
Squads introduces a whole new level of competition to Call of Duty. We've taken the best parts of the Multiplayer experience and combined that with a vastly improved AI and our new mechanic of creating your own squad-mates. All the hard work you've put into customizing, playing, and prestiging your squad can now be put to use on a brand new playing field.
NEW ENGINE. From maps and modes, to animation and audio, to who you are as a player — this is the biggest overhaul of multiplayer since the original Modern Warfare®. Things like Sub-D, Displacement Mapping, Real-Time Lighting, and Dual-Rendering tech gives us the ability to build the most visceral gameplay experience we've ever created.
Call of Duty®: Ghosts has redefined how you move through the world.
· A new contextual lean system now allows you to lean around obstacles without adding button combinations.
· A new mantling system allows you to move fluidly over objects, while not losing momentum.
· The knee slide allows you to naturally transition from sprinting to crouch to prone.
DYNAMIC MAP EVENTS
We're immersing players in the multi-player maps in ways similar to what we've done cinematically in single-player, while adding new ways to play and interact with the environments in a meaningful way. New interactive elements and player triggered events make the maps evolve as the match goes on. From player-triggered traps to map-changing killstreaks, the entire landscape can shift and require new tactics and strategies.
OUTNUMBERED, OUTGUNNED, BUT NOT OUTMATCHED. This new chapter in the Call of Duty® franchise features a fresh dynamic, where players are on the side of a crippled nation, fighting not for freedom, or liberty, but simply to survive. Special Operations forces, a mysterious group known only as "Ghosts", lead the battle against a newly-emerged, technologically-superior, global power.
An independent, covert, and ultra-elite Special Forces unit, GHOSTS operates outside of the normal military chain of command. Formed from the remnants of Tier one operatives, who were nearly wiped out during Operation Sand Viper in the Middle East, in 2005. The fifteen survivors, including Captain Gabriel Rorke and Lt. Elias Walker, were formed into a new unit known as “The Ghosts.”
The resource-rich promise of South America has been fulfilled under the Federation. Fully consolidated energy production combined with a rich factory infrastructure arising from First World outsourcing, the Federation is operating and enjoying a period of growth similar to the late 20th Century Middle East.
The United States ushered in a new era of space-based warfare with the launch of the O.D.I.N. (Orbital Defense Initiative) space station. The ODIN station was armed with a battery of sophisticated kinetic projectile launchers. The ODIN’s weapon systems were designed to drop tungsten rods from orbit with pin-point precision. One rod hit was equivalent to the detonation of a small tactical nuclear warhead.
NO MAN'S LAND
"No Man's Land" (NML) is the slang term for a 60-mile wide strip of suburban desolation that runs East-West across Southern California, starting between San Diego and Los Angeles. NML stretches from the Orange County coastline out into the Mojave Desert to Las Vegas, and beyond…NML was ground zero for the ODIN orbital strikes when the Federation saboteurs used it against the US. The Odin kinetic bombardment left massive craters and rendered it tectonically unstable.
BROTHERS IN ARMS
Hesh and Logan Walker trained their entire lives under the watchful and demanding eye of their battle hardened father, Elias Walker. Their innate abilities as marksman and hunters gave them a particular advantage growing up. Their father had hoped that these traits would help both of his sons maintain their self-reliance should things get rough. Ten years after the Odin event, Lt. they serve together on a recon team based out of Fort Santa Monica, tasked with defending and patrolling the California front. Both were grounded by Elias’ subtle training – core to which is that Hesh and his younger brother Logan must always look out for each other.
Warfare is no longer limited to the trenches. Fights take place underwater, in outer space and even on jagged rock faces. Diverse missions and battlefields have you rappelling down buildings, floating in zero gravity and taking aim inside a helicopter. The diversity of gameplay keeps the action epic and redefines what it means to be a soldier in the field.
Extinction is a completely new 4-player, co-op game mode featuring a unique blend of fast-paced survival gameplay, base defense, player customization and class leveling rounding out this robust new Call of Duty: Ghosts game mode. Teamwork is critical. Your team faces an inhuman menace that has overrun an isolated Colorado town and you must eliminate the threat via any means necessary.
At the start of the game, each member of the team chooses from one of several custom character classes - medic, engineer, tank, and weapon specialist. As the team battles through the streets of Caldera Peak, players earn currency that can be used to purchase a variety of upgrades and character abilities. The team can scavenge for special equipment and weapon mods left behind by previous, unsuccessful, military forces.
Extinction’s fast-paced survival combat features a series of intense base-defense scenarios, where your overall objective is to destroy the alien threat with the help of a nuclear device. Team members must work together to hold off waves of alien attackers until each alien “hive” can be neutralized. No two games are the same as the moment-to-moment upgrade decisions can dictate the strategies of the team.
Extinction features a variety of new “alien” enemies, from wall crawling Scouts, ferocious Hunters, devious exploding Seekers, leaping and spitting Scorpions, and massive armored Rhinos that can decimate an unprepared squad in a matter of seconds.
HINTS AND TIPS FOR SUCCESS
Players can equip up to four found attachments on their weapons, find flares, trophy systems, special ammo, and even a "Hypno-Knife" that can brainwash enemy creatures, transforming them into savage allies for a limited time. Extinction’s new Combat Spend system also offers access to a wide range of offensive, defensive, and support equipment bonuses that can turn the tide of a desperate battle.
EXTINCTION EPISODE 1: NIGHTFALL
Anchoring this first content pack is Episode 1: Nightfall, the first installment in Extinction's four-part episodic narrative. At a remote facility in the Alaskan wilderness, the shadowy Nightfall Program has been researching the origins of the "Alien" threat. When the scientists lose control, a small team of elite soldiers must retrieve the intel and exterminate hordes of savage creatures.
SEASON PASS. Get ready for a full season of amazing content with the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Season Pass.

In Episode 2: Mayday, the Quick Reaction Force team is sent in to investigate a high-tech ghost ship adrift in the South Pacific. To deal with the insidious wall-crawling “Seeder” and skyscraper-sized monstrosity known as the “Kraken,” your team will need new tactics and new weapons.

Call Of Duty: Ghosts Wants Your ENTIRE HARD DRIVE
50 GB. Even more in dog numbers
When I first read over the newly released specs for Call of Duty: Ghosts , I heard a high-pitched wail from within my PC's case. Now, it should be noted that my PC is, in fact, haunted by an actual ghost, so I initially thought nothing of it. But then, when the ghost announced it was going out to buy a carton of milk, the pained whimpering continued. That's when I understood: it was my hard drive. CODBOO's 50 GB requirement filled the poor slab of storage with a primal terror, and it clawed helplessly at unfeeling walls in an attempt to escape. That, in turn, startled my molasses-slow Internet connection, which began bellowing in horrific dial-up tones. Neither will stop. So thanks, Infinity Ward. Thanks a lot .
Here are the specs, courtesy of Nvidia :
Minimum System Requirements
- OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
- RAM: 6 GB RAM
- HDD: 50 GB HD space
- Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
- Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card
- DirectX: 11
- Internet: Broadband connection and service required for Multiplayer Connectivity. Internet connection required for activation.
Recommended System Requirements
- Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780
Why does a rather ho-hum looking (and not particularly lengthy, especially on the single-player side) game demand these lofty specs? I haven't the foggiest, but let us not forget that this is the first Call of Duty with both playable dogs and women, which of course means that... yeah, I've got nothing. Maybe Riley has over three million lines of meticulously recorded doggy dialogue or something.
The Internet requirement is also a bit questionable. If it's just for multiplayer, then there's nothing to see here. However, the list goes on to note that it's "required for activation" as well, which could a) also apply to single-player and b) come with its own set of restrictions in regards to install limits, check-ins, etc. I've mailed Activision for clarification.
So there's that. In other news, how about those revised Watch Dogs specs ? I suppose that one at least has reasons for demanding a rig of lordly caliber. Still though, how are those of you with mid-range machines feeling? Is it time to start squirreling away cash for an upgrade?

Call of Duty: Ghosts features a completely new setting, characters, and system. It still features linear sections, but it is said to have "easter eggs" within the game to alter missions slightly. The setting of the game is a war-torn U.S.A. ten years after an ODIN strike , launched via satellite after a hijacking, devastated the landscape and invasion from the Federation, a conglomeration of several South American countries. The single player features a dog companion named Riley , fighting in outer space, a story featuring a team of " Ghosts ," who are remnants of elite U.S. Special Operations Forces teams, and various other features.
Setting and Characters
The game's main protagonists are the Ghosts, a force of U.S. Special Operations personnel trained to conduct clandestine missions behind enemy lines. The unit is led by retired U.S. Army Captain Elias Walker (Stephen Lang). He is joined by his sons Logan Walker and David "Hesh" Walker , along with Kick and Keegan P. Russ, a trained German Shepherd named Riley , and Cdr. Thomas A. Merrick of the Navy SEALs.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is set in an alternate timeline from our world that follows the nuclear destruction of the Middle East. The oil-producing nations of South America form the Federation in response to the ensuing global economic crisis and quickly grow into a global superpower, swiftly invading and conquering Central America and the Caribbean. The game's main antagonist is Gabriel T. Rorke , a former Ghost leader who eventually turned into a traitor after being captured and brainwashed using torture and hallucinogens who now works with the Federation.
The game begins with Elias Walker telling his so ns about the legend of how the Ghosts first appeared. Meanwhile in space, the Federation hijacks the controlling space station of the Orbital Defense Initiative ( ODIN ), an orbital superweapon that utilizes kinetic bombardment, and use it to destroy several cities in the southwestern United States. Two American astronauts, Mosley and Baker , attempt to defend ODIN from falling into enemy hands, but are ultimately unable to stop them from firing it on the United States. With no other choice, the astronauts decide to scuttle the station by sabotaging its key systems, the explosion killing Mosley and causing the station to self destruct. Baker is then burnt in Earth's orbit along with Mosley's corpse. Elias and the young Logan and David, "Hesh", narrowly escape the destruction of San Diego.
Ten years later , the United States has fought the Federation to a stalemate along a front that comprises the destroyed cities, also known as "No Man's Land". Logan and Hesh are part of a US unit commanded by Elias and during a patrol, they spot an American is working with the Federation who is called Gabriel T. Rorke . Soon after , the brothers are ambushed and rescued by mem bers of the Ghosts who are seeking their companion Ajax , who was captured by Rorke. Logan and Hesh join the mission to rescue Ajax , but arrive too late to rescue him and after he is killed by Federation soldiers, they reunite with their father who reveals himself as the leader of Ghosts. Believing his sons are ready to join his unit, Elias welcomes them into the Ghosts and they learn from him that Rorke once were their leader. However, during a successful mission to assassinate General Almagro , then president of the Federation in the capital Caracas, Elias is forced to abandon Rorke, who was presumed dead, but instead turned traitor and is now hunting down his former companions.
The Ghosts devise a massive attack in order to capture Rorke, but while flying back home, Rorke's men attack their plane and rescue him. The team then is forced to land deep into the Amazon Jungle , where they witness a rocket being launched with an unknown purpose. Once reunited and rescued, the Ghosts storm a Federation laboratory in the Andes and obtain data regarding a classified operation in a factory at Rio De Janeiro . To secure a path to the factory, the Ghosts destroy the Federation's Atlas oil platform located in Antartica to lure the enemy fleet away from their objective and sink their remaining destroyer guarding the Brazilian coast . Once inside the factory, the team discovers that the Federation had reverse engineered the ODIN's technology and developed their own orbital bombardment system. After destroying the factory, Elias and his sons regroup in Las Vegas but are captured by Rorke who kills Elias in front of Hesh and Logan who later find an opportunity to escape.
Realizing that once the Federation's LOKI become operational they will be defeated for good, the United States pool all their remaining forces in a synchronized attack to take down an enemy space center in Chile while a small team of soldiers boards a shuttle to take over the Federation satellites in space . Once both objectives are completed, Hesh and Logan pursue Rorke to avenge their father and are seemingly successful , only to find out during the aftermath that Rorke survived their battle. Logan attempts to defend his wounded brother, but has his arm broken and is kidnapped by Rorke, with the former Ghost announcing his plans to try and brainwash Logan into becoming a Federation Agent like himself. In a post-credits scene, Logan is seen being kept inside a pit in the jungle, presumably going through the same torture methods that Rorke went through.

Ghosts has 13 weapon camos that can be unlocked by doing in-game challenges. "Spectrum camo" is available for those who pre-ordered the game off of the Microsoft Store. The Season Pass also unlocks a DLC camo called "Ice."
The multiplayer mode of Call of Duty: Ghosts includes features never before put into the Call of Duty series, such as character customization, dynamic maps, and many new movements such as sliding , leaning around corners, and better interaction with the environment. Sliding is done the same way as drop shooting on previous Call of Duty games. Leaning is done by standing close to a wall and pressing the ADS button. As an addition, the playable character now performs special animations when climbing objects (instead of their weapons simply disappearing off the screen), and crawling animations when prone return from Call of Duty: Black Ops II . In Call of Duty: Ghosts , guns do more damage than they ever have before, meaning that players die quickly but also get kills quickly.
The maps in Ghosts are bigger than they have been in the previous games in the Call of Duty series. Some maps have dynamic parts to them, such as the bus in Chasm or the Halon Gas in Sovereign. There is also more customization than there ever has been before. Players can change their character's head, headgear, gender, uniform, and many other accessories.
The system of prestige and unlocking weapons and attachments is completely different as well. In order to prestige, the player unlocks a squad member with squad points and ranks it up to level sixty. Once the player has leveled up all ten squad members, they become max prestige. In order to unlock weapons, attachments, and equipment, the player simply purchases them with squad points, or can wait until they reach a certain level. The player must unlock weapons for each individual squad member.
Players that pre-ordered Call of Duty: Ghosts received a bonus map, called Free Fall .
Along with the update for the Nemesis DLC , the game now has a "Fresh Start" feature, that works very similarly to the Fresh Start feature from Call of Duty: Black Ops II . Using a Fresh Start will reset the character's level to Prestige 0, Level 1, and will completely erase all combat statistics from their profile (Kill to Death Ratio, Win to Loss ratio, Preferred Weapon, etc.). There are two major changes to this system: The player must be at the highest level possible in order to use a Fresh Start (completed Prestige 10, level 60), and all weapon camouflages will not be lost upon using the Fresh Start. Fresh Starting and playing afterwards will almost always have a severe impact on the player's statistics, as their previous statistics in their Combat Record may not reflect their present statistics.
In Call of Duty: Ghosts , for the first time, the player is able to alter their experience on each map, with Dynamic Maps being even more so than before. Examples given include knocking down a stack of logs, destroying a map with the new K.E.M. Strike killstreak reward , collapsing a gas Station and blowing up doors. There are limits to these factors though, and they are only available on preset spots (descriptions are under "Dynamics" in each maps' pages).
Squads is a new game mode in Ghosts. In it, the player can play with AI controlled teammates or even with friends against AI. XP is shared between Multiplayer and Squads, so leveling up in Squads helps the player's character in Multiplayer as well. There are five modes within Squads:
- Squad vs Squad : Involves two opposing players versing 1v1, with squad members filling in the rest of the team, making 6v6. This mode can be played on Team Deathmatch , Domination and Kill Confirmed .
- Wargame : The player and five other squad members verse a team of six opposing bots in a mode set to "replicate" the full MP experience. This mode is available on Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed, Cranked and Blitz in online matches. In Local matches it can be played in these game modes plus Search and Rescue and Hunted . If the player has played Drop Zone , Reinforce or Search & Destroy in a Local or Private match recently then they will be able to play Wargame on these additionally if going into Recent Game Modes in Local matches.
- Safeguard Extended: Safeguard with 40 rounds.
- Safeguard Infinite: Safeguard with 100 waves.
- Squad Assault : The player and up to five other players or squad members verse a squad consisting of another player's squad.
On August 14, in the Multiplayer Reveal, Mark Rubin introduced a similar customization system to BOII's Pick-Ten System for Perks:
"Every Perk has a set point value from 1 to 5, and you have 8 points to use how you want. So for example: I could choose 4 Perks, each valued at 2, or 8 Perks, each valued at 1. I could also choose to get rid of my Secondary and my Equipment and get up to 11 Perks."
The classic three-tiered perk system has been done away with, replaced by seven categories of five perks. These tiers are Speed, Handling, Stealth, Awareness, Resistance, Equipment and Elite. Speed will feature perks meant to allow the player to move faster overall, Handling will let the player move more consistently and better, Stealth perks will grant immunities to certain things in the game. Awareness perks will give the player a better overall view of the game, and what is going on around them, Resistance is set to grant resistance to common factors of the game, like explosives. Equipment will give the player's Tacticals, Lethals and Attachments a healthy boost, while Elite perks are more based around situational benefits.
Pointstreaks return from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 , and are available as Assault, Support or Specialist pointstreaks. Assault pointstreaks include the brand new SAT COM killstreak, "Riley": the five point Guard Dog streak and the new Maniac Juggernaut pointstreak. Support pointstreaks include the Ammo Crate (get ammo and receive a random weapon), the new MAAWS launcher and the Helo Scout .

Extinction is a new game mode featured in the Call of Duty: Ghosts ; the players' objectives are to kill the attacking aliens , but the other objectives vary between maps. Most have the player destroy Hives using a Laser Drill . It plays similar to Survival Mode , with various weapons and upgrades. As the player progresses through the game and completes challenges, they unlock skill points, which they use to upgrade their load out. Guns are bought throughout random spots in the map, and equipment and attachments are found by scavenging. There are 30 levels, with different defenses unlocked as the player progresses. Once the player reaches level 30, they prestige and have the option of using relics, which allow the player to level up faster. Every time the player prestiges, they can use one more relic.
An update added a new game mode to Extinction known as Chaos Mode , which acts like the similarly-named game mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 known as Special Ops Chaos . The player is put in a part of the map they choose to play, and they must pick up new weapons and other pickups to survive. It is timed rather than round-based, and it will keep going until the combo runs out after the time runs out, or if the players die.
There are four map packs for Ghosts , being Onslaught , Devastation , Invasion , and Nemesis . These are followed by various customisation packs.
The Season Pass can be bought and downloaded for Call of Duty: Ghosts ; it enables a pre-paid subscription that allows instant download upon release. Along with this, it includes the Team Leader customization pack, the "Seasoned Veteran" emblem, a background featuring Riley , and Ice Camouflage .

This is the first map pack in Call of Duty: Ghosts . It includes the multiplayer maps Fog , BayView , Containment , and Ignition . The Extinction map is Nightfall , which takes place in an abandoned Alaskan base. This DLC also includes the Maverick Assault Rifle and the Maverick-A2 Sniper Rifle. It was released on January 28, 2014 for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and on February 27, 2014 for PC, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4.
This is the second map pack in Call of Duty: Ghosts . It includes the multiplayer maps Behemoth , Ruins , Unearthed and Collision . The Extinction map is Mayday , which takes place aboard the Stormbreaker out in the Tasman Sea in the South Pacific Ocean. This DLC also includes the Ripper SMG/AR. It was released on April 3 for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and on May 8 for PC, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4.
This is the third map pack in Call of Duty: Ghosts . It includes the multiplayer maps Pharaoh , Departed , Mutiny and Favela . The Extinction map is Awakening , which takes place in the heart of Ball's Pyramid, Australia. This DLC does NOT include a DLC weapon. It was released on June 3rd, 2014 for Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It was later released on July 2nd for PC, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4.
This is the fourth and final map pack in Call of Duty: Ghosts . It includes the multiplayer maps Dynasty , Goldrush , Showtime and Subzero . The Extinction map is Exodus , which has players fighting the Cryptid army in a city along with the Ancestors that were awoken in the previous chapter. Similarly to Invasion, this DLC pack does not include any additional weapons. It was released August 5th, 2014 for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and September 4th for PC, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4.

Call of Duty: Ghosts offers players the ability to transfer their progress from an Xbox 360 to an Xbox One or a PS3 to a PS4. This includes all multiplayer progress, including unlocks, statistics, and the Season Pass DLC, but not microtransactions such as Personalization Packs, Customization Packs, or Voice Packs; DLC content other than the Season Pass and Map Packs must be re-purchased in order to use them again.
- The first letters of the map packs for Call of Duty: Ghosts spell out ODIN : O nslaught, D evastation, I nvasion, N emesis.
- In an interview with IGN, Mark Rubin said that the game's campaign will feature hidden sub-missions which can be activated by the player, but were not featured in the actual game.
- Considering this was a next-gen title, there are major differences between Xbox One/PS4 and Xbox 360/PS3 as well as the Wii U version. Graphics have been enhanced on Xbox One/PS4. On PC, just like in the previous games in the series, there are customizable graphical options including the option to use Motion Blur, despite being used during in-game cutscenes. Also, on Xbox 360, the game splits into 2 discs. Disc 1 is the game itself and Disc 2 is to install the Campaign part. This is also the same case with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare . Also, the game is forced to 16:9 widescreen if the standard 4:3 screen format is used. The Wii U version, like Call of Duty: Black Ops II and all of the Call of Duty titles released on the Wii, has Wii Remote & Nunchuck support. Despite this, this was the final Call of Duty game released on the Wii U and the last one to be released on a Nintendo console.
- A mantling bug allows the player to equip most weapons in their left hand, causing the gun to float, iron sights to be unused, and sniper scopes to not function.

Call of Duty: Ghosts PC FOV fix taken down following Activision threats
FOV stands for Fido of Violence.
An unofficial Field of View (FOV) fix for Call of Duty: Ghosts provided by the Fovely community has been taken down following the threat of legal action from Activision. The FOV is locked at 65 on PC, which is obviously a bit rubbish, and has created demand for the ability to change it.
The fix only allowed an alteration of the FOV in multiplayer mode, but that was still better than nothing. Where the download link had been, there is now the message “link removed due to a friendly threat from everyone’s favorite publishing firm.” The top of the page has a couple of paragraphs detailing the ongoing legal issues with Activision over hosting unofficial “fix” files like this.
However, if you still want to download the unofficial FOV fix you don’t have to look very far in the same Fovely thread to find it. It is of course a file that you use at your own risk; though it’s worth noting that Infinity Ward have previously stated that they don’t care about people using FOV mods. That should still be the case for Call of Duty: Ghosts but without confirmation it’s hard to be one hundred percent sure. Running unofficial files of this type through some sort of virus checker would probably still be good idea though.
There are also said to be work-arounds ‘out there’ for the hard-lock on the 6GB RAM check .

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Has a CoD Ghosts Problem
Posted: October 20, 2023 | Last updated: October 21, 2023
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's visuals are reminiscent of those from Call of Duty: Ghosts, despite the usual looks of Modern Warfare.
- Call of Duty: Ghosts' poor visuals, particularly its gray appearance, contributed to the game's negative reception and lackluster sales, ultimately leading to no sequel.
- Fans of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 have expressed concerns about the game's proposed gray aesthetic, which could negatively impact gameplay and disadvantage certain skin types.
Game developers often push boundaries to create a new exciting experience for players. For instance, Nintendo's use of the Havok Physics engine in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild transformed how players tackled in-game challenges, ushering in a more realistic approach, and the dynamic turned out to be a success as the title became one of the best-selling games of all time . However, not all radical changes pan out to be the right move. Sledgehammer Games took a giant leap in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 , and with its PlayStation-exclusive beta recently concluded, fans have voiced their concerns with the direction the franchise seems to be towing. History often repeats itself, and Modern Warfare 3 might have repeated a problem from Call of Duty: Ghosts .
Call of Duty: Ghosts ' rollout was quite an eventful journey, as the franchise aimed to generate social media fanfare with the legendary "the Ghosts are real" tagline. Coupled with the addition of the Squads game mode, fans expected another quality experience from the premier FPS franchise. However, the game was a letdown for all the hype it got, as the title didn't have enough going on to get players invested in its campaign. A major contributor to the negative sentiment was its poor visuals. The lackluster sales numbers told the story of fan displeasure, with players and critics citing the game's depressively gray appearance -- and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 could be in danger of repeating the same mistake.
RELATED: Why Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Could Feature Black Ops 2 Content in Future Seasons
A Gray Outlook Could Clip MW3's Wings
Although visuals weren't as essential to a game's success as an engaging storyline and immersive gameplay at the time, Call of Duty: Ghosts ' gray aesthetic was too dominant to ignore, contributing to a bland atmosphere in the traditionally colorful maps. The developer probably went liberal on the gray appearance to fit the ghostly theme, but the visuals directly impacted the title's gameplay. Enemies were difficult to pick out on the terrain -- even accounting for camouflage -- due to the excessive shadow casting. These issues directly contributed to COD: Ghosts never getting a sequel .
A number of factors share the blame for Call of Duty: Ghosts ' underwhelming visual experience, from Infinity Ward prioritizing a higher frame rate at the expense of quality colors to the game engine's object rendering tool. Given the problems and criticism that edition of the Call of Duty series endured, it surprised gamers when recent reveals of Modern Warfare 3 featured similar issues -- a full decade after Ghosts ' infamous struggles. Sledgehammer Games seems to pivot away from the warm and vibrant lighting of previous Modern Warfare installments in favor of Ghosts ' looks.
In response, Modern Warfare fans have taken to social media to request a revamp addressing the game's flat appearance. Given the emphasis on skins and Modern Warfare 3 's Carry Forward feature , much of MW2 's elements will suffer from the greatly reduced vibrance, which is counterproductive, seeing as players spent so much on skins for their distinct color in the first place. Dark-colored skin types are now at a disadvantage with MW3 's proposed gray look as they stick out over the background, making players vulnerable to attacks.
Ever the resourceful bunch, the Call of Duty community has been conjuring creative ways to mitigate the effect of Modern Warfare 3 's hazy grey display. Some have suggested that players reduce the brightness of their display screens, but this suggestion doesn't entirely resolve the issue. With the clock counting down quickly to Modern Warfare 3 's release date , Sledgehammer Games is running out of time to address the fans' requests. Hopefully a patch will adjust the game's lighting and color grading after launch.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launches on November 10 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
Black Ops III is an upcoming first-person shooter by the developers at Treyarch. COD: BO3 is scheduled to be released on November 6, 2015 for the current generation consoles and ported to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. For the first time since Call of Duty 4 players can beta test Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Black Ops III takes place in a dystopian future set in 2065, about 40 years after the events of BO2. Even though the game is set in the future, a majority of the black ops 3 weapons like assault and sniper rifles are projectile-based and there are no direct-energy weapons. Since players are elite Black Ops soldiers, a lot of the black ops 3 scorestreaks and perks have had significant changes to accommodate to the new cybernetic bio-augmentations.
The movement in Black Ops 3 has been completely reinvented, allowing boost jumps and wall-running. Maps have been built from the ground-up for the chained-movement system; these changes can be seen in the fan favorite black ops 3 nuketown multiplayer map . The boost jumps and power slides in the game make you more exposed, but exo-perks like the black ops 3 ghosts perk can help you stay undetected as long as you keep moving.
Up to four players can survive endless waves of attacking zombies in the new BO3 Zombies mode, which for the first time has its own XP-based progression system. Expect the black ops 3 nuketown zombies to also make a return from Black Ops 2.
Nemesis is the fourth and final DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts. It features four new multiplayer maps and the final episode to the Extinction saga called Exodus. Nemesis was released on August 5 for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and like the previous DLC packs, the PlayStation and PC version was available one month later on September 4.
An abandoned gold mine with narrow tunnels and a central elevating platform. The treacherous shafts are ideal for close-quarters combat.
An abandoned Canadian submarine base. Medium-sized map based on the traditional three-lane design mixed with short- to long-range combat.
Chinese lakeside village surrounded by mountains. Medium-sized map with a variety of elevation.
Small-sized map based on the Shipment map from COD4: Modern Warfare that's been re-imagined as a futuristic death arena.
The Nemesis DLC has 9 normal Extinction mode achievements + one secret achievement.
Invasion is Ghosts' third DLC update and it features four multiplayer maps and the next installment in the Extinction series, Episode 3: Awakening. The DLC was first available on the Xbox on June 3, while PlayStation and PC players had to wait until June 2.
Medium-sized map set in a rural Mexican town featuring a classic three-lane design.

The Invasion DLC pack has 10 new unlockable Extinction mode achievements.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (AW) is the next COD game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be released on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 4. The game will be the first in the series to have a three year development cycle.
The futuristic exoskeletons in COD: AW give players new abilities like boost jumping, sliding, and dodging - the exosuits can also be upgraded with Exo Abilities, like cloaking and hovering. Customization options have also been tripled, for example the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Weapons have received a new Heavy Weapons class and there are over 350 custom guns in the game.
Advanced Warfare features an upgraded version of Black Ops 2's "Pick 10" system. With the new "Pick 13" system, players can choose their Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Scorestreaks as a part of their loadout, or skip them entirely and spend the points on other items. All the scorestreaks in the game can be upgraded to have new features, for example, the Turret killstreak can be upgraded to a rocket launcher or an energy weapon.
There are only 15 perks the game, but compared to Ghosts, they are more powerful on their own. Also due to the exosuits, some of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Perks have been turned into Exo Abilities, which in turn makes the multiplayer more balanced and prevents overpowered loadouts.
All the COD: AW pre-orders will receive a bonus map called Atlas Gorge, which is a remake of Pipeline from Call of Duty 4. Sledgehammer Games has already confirmed that there will be four map packs released in 2015 and they will be included in the games Season Pass. Like with Ghosts, the Xbox platform will be getting all the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Maps one month before the PlayStation and PC versions.
The second DLC pack for Ghosts, called Devastation, features four new unique maps, a hybrid 2-in-1 weapon and the second Extinction episode called Mayday. Devastation was released on April 3 for the Xbox and May 8 for the PlayStation and PC.
Takes place in Columbia on a massive excavation vehicle. Behemoth is a small-sized map with narrow paths and multiple levels; the map offers great flanking opportunities for players.
Takes place in a Mayan ruin located next to a volcano on the brink of eruption.
Small map situated in the heart of an alien dig site. Unearthed's design has been heavily influenced by Dome, a Modern Warfare 3 fan-favorite.
Medium-sized map located in New York. The action takes place on a crashed cargo ship with shipping containers, vehicles and other debris scattered across the deck.
Ripper 2-In-1 Submachine Gun / Assault Rifle
The Ripper can be configured as a short-range SMG or a long-range Assault Rifle. The weapon's SMG / AR mode can be switched on the fly, giving the user a huge tactical advantage.
The DLC has 10 new unlockable Extinction mode trophies.
The first COD: Ghosts DLC, Onslaught, offers four new multiplayer maps, two new weapons and the first installment of Extinction's four-part saga called Nightfall. The DLC was released on January 28 for the Xbox 360 / One and one month later on February 27 for the PlayStation 3 / 4 and PC.
Medium-sized map located next to a fog-shrouded lake inspired by classic horror films. Fog features a dark and eerie campsite, twisting caves and abandoned structures.
Small-sized map set on a Californian boardwalk. BayView features fast-paced action with quick engagements mixed with verticality.
Medium-sized map that takes place in a war-torn Mexican village. Mixture of abandoned buildings, a poll hall, and a church offer a variety of close-quarter and longer-range engagements.
Located in a space launch facility with rockets crash-landing into the area. This fast run-and-gun combat map is inspired by Scrapyard from Modern Warfare 2.
Maverick Assault Rifle & Sniper Rifle
Dual-purpose weapon that can be used either as an assault rifle or sniper rifle. The Maverick AR is fully automatic and deals devastating damage at close range. The Maverick-A2 sniper rifle is semi-automatic with decent fire rate and deadly damage from the waist up.
The Onslaught DLC contains 11 Extinction mode achievements for you to unlock.
Extinction Class Overview
Infinity Ward has released some new information about the classes available in the new Extinction game mode in Ghosts. The new game mode forces players to use anything and everything at their disposal against the alien hordes. Four character classes with different abilities are available to help maximize the team's changes in fighting against the odds.
All four classes (Weapon Specialist, Tank, Engineer and Medic) gain levels as the game progresses, which further improves their abilities.
The team should consist of a variety of classes, which allows all the different abilities to complement each other - this way you'll stay alive longer.
Free Fall Bonus Map Gameplay Trailer
Activision has released the first gameplay footage of the dynamic Free Fall bonus map. Fans who pre-order COD: Ghosts will get the downloadable bonus map with the game - a similar deal is also available for COD: Advanced Warfare.
Free Fall drops you and your teammates into a shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse. The map features close-quarters combat that's thrown into overdrive as the skyscraper continues to fall during the match.

The latest COD game (Black Ops 3) has evolved the series by adding new movement mechanics, weapons, perks and scorestreaks. Treyarch has also overhauled call of duty black ops 3's multiplayer substantially while still keeping the core of the game familiar to returning players.
Call of Duty: Ghosts for Windows
The specter of war
Set in the context of a global economic crisis, several South American oil producing states band together to form the Federation, a new superpower that will use its dominant position to turn against the United States. Call of Duty: Ghosts clumsily tries to strike a chord using this plot line by telling the story of two brothers and their German Shepherd who find themselves engaged in a battle to reclaim their homeland, despite themselves.
A pretty uninteresting solo campaign
Like its predecessors , the single player campaign in Call of Duty: Ghosts gets its cues from the cinematic extravaganza that hits viewers between the eyes in the first few minutes of play. It really does explode in all directions: bullets fly, blood spurts, and it's a real assault on the senses, with no time to catch your breath. The single player campaign leaves very little room for interaction, which is pretty strange for a video game.
If it ain't broke...
Trigger addicts can rest assured, Call of Duty: Ghosts doesn't drastically change their beloved multiplayer mode.
Among the new features, there are 14 new maps, the ability to slide on the ground, a new customization system with nearly 20,000 different options, female avatars, 7 new game modes, and 20 new Killstreaks (bonuses that reward the number of enemies killed) one of which is the war dogs.
As is common for the series, Call of Duty: Ghosts doesn't leave much room for tactics. Rather, the player's reflexes, memory, and skills will be rewarded.
I tested Call of Duty: Ghosts on Playstation 3 and I must admit I wasn't especially impressed by the graphics of the game. With its low resolution textures and fixed facial animations, Call of Duty: Ghosts is not best suited to current generation consoles. Fortunately, the particle effects, the distorted maps, and Riley the dog's animations come together to raise its game to some extent.
Verdict: Ghostly pallor
With Call of Duty: Ghosts, Infinity Ward delivers a mess of disparate experiences with pretty patchy quality. The multiplayer mode, the major asset of the saga, is enhanced with subtle improvements that come together to perfect a game mechanic that has already proven itself, without taking enough risk to make a long term impression.
- Great multiplayer unchanged
- Excellent Extinction mode
- Still too rigid
- Few new features

User reviews about call of duty: ghosts.
Call of duty ghost is by far the most harass game ever created in cod history and I hope that they make a sequel to ghost
The game is not ridiculous
by Aniket Das
Awsome game. Superb game... One of my favorite Game this game has a nice graphics and very addictive Pros: Graphic Story line
Good game!. Good game! But looks good graphics just looks a strange game but surely that can already play :)
ridiculous. this is so ridiculous Pros: nothing Cons: everything
The unveiling Black Ops II sequel to its dramatic ending.. The sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops II and it's a lot of different plans and the me chanincs. The story sets in 2026, where it was after the 2025 2nd Cold War. USA isn't a super-power country anymore; it's having a downfall and an enemy strikes back for a newer attention than before. The Federation de Americas is the main enemy of this game. Pros: More intensive action replays than B.O II. Inprovised 3D graphics. Cons: This game's almost the most disappointing ever in CoD History. Hard to functionalize that, it requires the most powerful GFX card and CPU card of this game. More

About This Game
- Ten years after a devastating mass event, America’s borders and the balance of global power have changed forever. As what's left of the nation's Special Operations forces, a mysterious group known only as "Ghosts" leads the fight back against a newly emerged, technologically-superior global power.
- A New Call of Duty Universe: For the first time in franchise history, players will take on the underdog role with Call of Duty: Ghosts; outnumbered and outgunned, players must fight to reclaim a fallen nation in an intensely personal narrative. Gamers will get to know an entirely new cast of characters and visit locales in a changed world unlike anything seen in Call of Duty® before.
- In Call of Duty: Ghosts you don't just create a class, you create a soldier, a first for the franchise. In the new Create-A-Soldier system, players can change the physical appearance of their soldier by choosing the head, body type, head-gear and equipment, and for the first time in a Call of Duty® game, the player can also choose their gender. With 20,000 possible combinations, this is the most flexible and comprehensive character customization in Call of Duty history.
- New dynamic maps are the evolution of multiplayer. They include interactive elements and player triggered events that make the environment evolve as each match goes on. The entire landscape can shift and force players to change tactics and strategies.
- Call of Duty: Ghosts introduces new tactical player movements. The new contextual lean system now allows players to lean around obstacles without adding button combinations or fully leaving cover. The new mantling system allows fluid movement over objects, while maintaining momentum. The knee slide allows for a natural transition from sprinting crouching to prone.
- Call of Duty: Ghosts delivers over 20 NEW Kill Streaks such as Juggernaut Maniac, the Helo Scout, the Vulture and the ODIN Strike. Players can even bring in guard dog Riley, from the single-player campaign, to protect and also to attack enemies. There are also over 30 NEW weapons, including an entirely new weapon class: Marksman Rifles.
- Build your team and take up to 6 of them into battle in the all new Squads mode. This mode takes the best parts of the multiplayer experience and allows you to play either solo or cooperatively with the custom soldiers created and leveled up in multiplayer.
- The load-out choices you make for your Squad members will directly change the AI behavior of your squad-mates. Give your soldier a sniper rifle and he'll behave like a sniper, and an SMG guy will be more run and gun.
