A new trailer for Call of Duty: Ghosts showcases its second multiplayer expansion called Devastation and confirms a guest appearance from the Predator, the trophy hunting Yautja first introduced in 1987 film Predator.

Call of Duty PSA asks employers to give young veterans a chance

Activision's philanthropy for veterans, the Call of Duty Endowment, is going to bat for former servicemembers who come home to chronic unemployment and an uphill fight against stereotypes about their time in uniform. Where some veterans go to job interviews in uniform with a sense of confidence it makes them a desirable hire, in many cases some employers can't see past the stripes and the ribbons. "The Honest Truth" encourages them to give returning vets a chance, particularly younger ones, who face unemployment rates many times higher than the rest of the country. The Call of Duty Endowment exists to help veterans find high quality careers by raising awareness among employers of the value veterans bring to a workplace, and by supporting groups that can prepare them to enter the...

Friends List: Are mechanics or storytelling more important in games?

Call of Duty presents this struggle of gameplay versus storytelling as a dichotomy of sorts: There is a wall between the single-player, narratively driven experience and the game's endlessly replayable multiplayer. But that's not always the case. Plenty of game developers strive to marry the two with differing degrees of success. Just last week, BioShock's Ken Levine talked about a thought experiment he's been tinkering with, an idea that he believes will help make games endlessly replayable not through multiplayer matches, but through narrative using something he calls narrative Legos. If this is your first episode, Friends List is a daily web series in which members of Polygon's editorial staff answer an important, unusual or agitating question related to video games. The goal is to...

Learn more about Call of Duty: Ghosts' new Squads modes

Call of Duty: Ghosts is introducing "an entirely new way" to experience the series' multiplayer with Squads, a new suite of gameplay modes that lets you fight alongside — and against — teams of AI-controlled soldiers.

Chinese military sim lets players fight Japan for Diaoyu Islands

A military simulation video game designed by China's Giant Network Technology Co. in partnership with the the People's Liberation Army — the military arm of the Communist Party of China — allows Chinese soldiers to fight Japanese troops and defend the much-disputed ownership of the Diaoyu Islands, the Washington Post reports. Glorious Mission Online — a first-person shooter described as China's Call of Duty equivalent — was first released in 2011 and was originally designed to train Chinese soldiers. In an update coming soon to the game, the developers have added a level that allows players to "reclaim and defend" the Diaoyu Islands, a collection of vacant but heavily disputed islands between China and Japan. Players fought a "flood of attacks from Japanese invaders" in a...
