The past month or so has been filled with news and rumors about Call of Duty Ghosts that it's easy to forget about another blockbuster shooter series that is on tap for a next gen release. This week at E3, Electronic Arts and DICE have features a ton of content for their upcoming modern military shooter Battlefield 4. Set six years after Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4 puts players in the role of a US Special Forces operative named Recker as they fight in a single player campaign set in Central Asia, China and other places across the globe. Just revealed during E3 is a 6 minute game play demo trailer that covers the multiplayer game. It has been confirmed that the Battlefield 4 Multiplayer mode will contain three playable factions, the United States, China and Russia as well as a Commander Mode for one player to give orders via a tactical map, 4 character classes, new weapons, vehicles and more. Battlefield 4 is schedule for release on Oct 29, 2013 for the PC as well as current and next gen consoles.
As mentioned yesterday, GameStop is offering pre-order bonuses for those who order Call of Duty Ghosts now. These bonuses include a new weapon skin of the Ghosts logo for use in Call of Duty Black Ops II as well as a two sided Call of Duty Ghosts poster. Images of both can be seen below. Both offers are limited time offers while supplies last. The new weapon skin bonus is only available for pre-orders of the PS3 and Xbox 360 version so for those of you planning to purchase a next gen console or the PC version of the game this bonus will not apply.
Not sure how much incentive these bonuses will give gamers to plop down $60 now for a weapons skin for the current Call of Duty game (that they may not own) and a poster but we will be sure to keep you updated to any other Call of Duty Ghosts details, rumors, bonuses and other information as it becomes available.

Infinity Ward and Activision took the wraps off of the Call of Duty Ghosts today at the Xbox One reveal event hosted by Microsoft. The two and a half minute trailer shows off some pretty amazing looking graphics with some cinematic cut scenes as well as what appears to be some in game footage. The game is being called a "stunning leap forward for consol gaming" by Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg and the game will be launched on Xbox One with exculsive content. The game will also be released for the Playstation 4, PC and current gen game console systems as well on November 5, 2013.
The trailer gives a brief monologue on soldiers and in addition to showing friendly canines, makes mention of 10 years having past, it's unclear if that means it is a continuation of the Modern Warfare series of Call of Duty series and makes no mention of any of the characters but if rumors hold true then Call of Duty Ghosts will feature a new set of characters. More is sure to follow in the coming weeks but for now you can enjoy the official Call of Duty Ghosts Reveal Trailer.
