Clans in Call of Duty up to now have never really been that much of a big deal, they’ve mainly been used as more of a namesake than anything, but that’s all about to change in Call of Duty: Ghosts where clans will play an integral part in the multiplayer experience.
Call of Duty: Ghosts aims to change the way we work as a clan. No longer is it just up to four letters stuck next to our usernames; working in a clan will now earn you points as well as special unlocks.
This year Call of Duty: Ghosts 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, (Sadly, Nintendo won’t be included) and level-up their Clan to earn exclusive unlocks and multiplayer XP bonuses.
All of this and more can be done in the new Call of Duty App where players can not only edit their clan’s emblem and view your clans statistics, but you can now rally up the troops, chat with other members of your clan within the app. If you’re a bit of a loner and aren’t a part of a clan, the app will also suggest some clans for you to join.
The Call of Duty Clan Wars experience will give clans the ability to square up to eachother in clan vs clan game modes. Players who already have a Call of Duty Elite account have the ability to reserve their clan names in a first come, first serve basis and new players and those who don’t already have a Call of Duty account also have the ability to sign up and reserve or create their own clan name.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is scheduled for release on PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 on November 5. The PS4 and Xbox One versions launch alongside the new consoles.
