Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer reveal in mid-August

Infinity Ward gearing up to show off the game's online component

Infinity Ward plans to reveal the multiplayer component of Call of Duty: Ghosts in August.

Executive producer Mark Rubin posted the following on Twitter, later confirming that the reveal will occur in the "middle" of the month, suggesting it'll be on show at Gamescom, which kicks off on the 21st.

Earlier this month, publisher Activision announced pre-order bonus Call of Duty Ghosts DLC in the form of a multiplayer map called Free Fall. It will mark the introduction of "dynamic map events" to the series, which see battlegrounds undergo landscape-altering events during matches. Call of Duty Ghosts DLC will launch first on Xbox.

Also this month, Infinity Ward studio community coordinator Candice Capen said Ghosts will "have a cooperative mode of sort". It was previously rumoured that Infinity Ward had dropped the Modern Warfare series' Spec Ops mode in favour of a new co-op game type.

Activision has confirmed a Call of Duty: Ghosts release date of November 5 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The game will also be a launch title for Xbox One and PS4.
