Activision has released a companion app for Call of Duty: Ghosts right in time for its release on Windows, PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 tomorrow (with the PS4 and Xbox One versions set to release later in the month as launch titles for their respective consoles). The app serves several purposes, all of which work hand-in-hand with the CoD: Ghosts.
The first is a Clan Wars game where you can battle for territory and earn exclusive in-game bonuses. Multiple Clans will fight over locations on the Clan Wars map that are pulled directly from the multiplayer modes in CoD: Ghosts. Success in Clan Wars can yield rewards like customization options for your soldier and bonus multiplayer XP.
Second Screen Functionality lets your device sync to your CoD: Ghosts multiplayer matches in real-time. You can edit your squad before matches and edit your loadouts between spawns and then push your changes to the game right away. You can also use your device to check out the results of a match after it ends.
You can join, create, and manage a clan entirely from inside the app. The extensive Clan Emblem Editor lets you design or edit your clan’s icon. Clan Chat lets you communicate with the other members of your clan.
Finally, the app also serves as a hub that you can use to stay informed of the latest Call of Duty news and events when you’re on the go. You can also review your own career stats. The Rally Up feature to let your friends know you’re ready to start playing multiplayer.
In any case, the app is free and it sounds like a great companion for anybody who’s going to be playing Call of Duty: Ghosts. Some of the tie-in features sound truly useful, but if nothing else, you should check this out to grab some bonus XP and exclusive customizations for your soldier.
