Miss the “Call of Duty: Ghosts All Access” pre-E3 livestream event yesterday? No big deal. You can watch the replay right here via the embed further down the page. Might as well do so now since there’s still some time left before the Microsoft press conference begins.

Two levels from the game are demoed, including a scuba diving sabotage mission called “Into the Deep” and “No Man’s Land,” which shows how Call of Duty Dog–real name Riley–factors into gameplay as a functional squad mate. Riley can perform reconnaissance, stealthily take down enemies, bark to cause diversions or lure enemies into open line of fire for the kill shot, all of which the player sees and controls from the perspective of a camera attached to the dog’s vest. Pretty cool stuff.

Other than our new canine companion, Riley, Ghosts appears to be sticking to its Call of Duty guns, with familiar follow-the-leader gameplay, slow-motion breaches, massive set pieces and nail-biting, blockbuster action. It’s everything you know and love (or hate for those who aren’t fans of the franchise) about Call of Duty given a next-gen sheen.
