Clans and Squads Teach the Value of Teamwork in Call of Duty: Ghosts


Activision and Infinity Ward have deployed two new Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer trailers, introducing the game’s Clans feature as well as a new Squads mode.

Squads mode consists of four match types designed to allow players to put together their own team of customized AI squad-mates to play offline against bots or take online for squad battles in co-op or against the squads of other players. Whether you play offline by yourself or online with others, earned experience points will be applied to your overall multiplayer ranking progression, which should make Squads a particularly helpful mode for players who need to brush up on their Call of Duty skills before diving full on into the competitive FPS fire.

The new Clan system for Call of Duty: Ghosts has been expanded to include a number of key features, such as cross-platform Clans (players on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One will be able to join the same Clan and earn Clan XP) and a free Clan Wars game mode in the Call of Duty mobile app. Early registration is underway and will run until October 25th, if you’d like to reserve your Clan Name or transfer your Clan Name from Call of Duty Elite. (Call of Duty Elite will be no more in Ghosts.)

One of Swords has a blog up with additional information about Clans in Call of Duty: Ghosts. And more detailed explanation about the early registration process can be found in this massive FAQ.
