A new trailer for the next installment in the Call of Duty series was recently released. The trailer, which focuses on the single-player campaign, starts with a shoot-out between astronauts on what looks to be a space station. The trailer goes on to show a future where the United States is in a state of ruin, leaving it open to invasion by unknown enemies. The game will follow a small group of trained soldiers, the ghosts, who are tasked with defending the country from these invaders.
According to a post on an Activision blog by community manager Dan Amrich, Call of Duty: Ghosts is "within the realm of plausibility." Regarding the scene from the trailer which shows a cylinder falling from a space platform to Earth, Amrich writes that "it's also been seriously considered by the United States Air Force as a military strike that could create mass devastation without nuclear fallout."
