A visual look at the new Call of Duty: Ghosts

Call of Duty is a franchise that has grown so big it transcends the gaming medium. Even if you have never played a video game in your life, the odds are good that you are at least familiar with the name Call of Duty. You don’t have to have watched Star Wars to understand the references to jedi.

CoD is nowhere near the levels of cultural saturation that Star Wars has reached, but with the annual games making over a billion dollars each regularly, it’s getting there. This year is especially important as well, as it marks the jump to the next-generation of consoles.

The series began on PC and made its home there with only limited success in the console market through ports of the original titles. That all changed with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which exploded on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Since then, the franchise has been dedicated to putting out console hits.

With the next generation of consoles due out later this year and Call of Duty being the biggest franchise in the world, it stands to reason that Call of Duty: Ghosts will be the biggest game on the next-gen. Here is a look at what to expect from a visual standpoint.
