Call of Duty: Ghosts won’t have branching missions

Wednesday, 17th July 2013 08:30 GMT By Dave Cook

Call of Duty: Ghosts won’t be taking the less-linear route of Black Ops 2′s branching missions and choices, as developer Infinity Ward has plumped for the standard corridor format once more.

Speaking with OPM, Infinity Ward’s Mark Rubin said, “We don’t have the same branching system [Treyarch] do, obviously. But there is basically this way that, when you are in a mission, you might find something, if you grab it, then something opens up later in a different mission, or something happens later in that mission, that wouldn’t have happened if you didn’t do them”.

He added that these mystery items will pop up “several times throughout the whole campaign”, so just like our source PCGamesN suggested, it’s probably intel – mobile phones, laptops and the like.

What do you make of the above?

    It wasn’t a pun, a pun is a play on language.

    If the comments are to be believed, there are lots of tools.

    All that aside, I like games where the gamer has some control over the story, and I also like games where the storyteller is in control of the story. They are both valid ways of doing it.

    I don’t consider this moving backwards, because I don’t consider a branching story to be moving forwards. Branching stories have been around a long time, and sometimes developers opt for them, sometimes they don’t. There are a lot of great games out there were the gamer does not get to impact the outcome of the story.

    My main concern for the next CoD is multiplayer being done right and what kind of co-op options there will be.
