…and speaking of pre-order bonuses, Call of Duty: Ghosts is jumping onto that train with a brand new map on offer only for fans who slap down a pre-order for the game, due November 5th. Free Fall is a downloadable bonus map which shows off the recently-added dynamic map event mechanic – and you’ll get it at launch, but only if you act fast.

Mark Rubin, executive producer at Infinity Ward explains:
Dynamic map events change the way players approach the game, and Free Fall does a great job illustrating this new mechanic. As the match progresses, the geometry of the world continues to change and players need to adjust on the fly or else. It’s a really fun new feature that adds layers of strategy and constantly evolving gameplay options for players. And this is just one of the many new approaches we’re putting into Ghosts’ multiplayer across the board. There’s so much more that we look forward to sharing in the weeks to come.
While the mechanic will be implemented into a number of maps for the game, Free Fall is our first look. This one is set in a shattered skyscraper moments from collapse. Expect disarray – elevator shafts along the ground, windows forming a glass floor, staircases climbing sideways – and among all that, the typical Call of Duty firefights.
Did we mention the tower’s still falling?
Call of Duty: Ghosts is due out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 5th, with new-generation versions following after. Pre-orders are available now at all good retailers.
