The Return of the Kings of War Games and Hip-Hop

With less than three months away from its release, “Call of Duty: Ghosts” dropped a trailer last week and the buzz continued to grow around one of this year’s biggest game event.

Two special collector’s editions are available for loyal fans to celebrate its 10th instalment. They include a range of extra digital content and a full HD and head-mountable tactical camera, aside from many other new features being introduced to the game. So it is no surprise that the special editions are substantially more expensive than those from previous releases (£179.99 vs £119.99).

It will be the first game to be available on PS4 and Xbox One, two other upcoming excitements in the industry, although developer Infinity Ward claims it is the PC that will provide players with the best visual and graphic experience.

It will also be the first time the game features a female character in multiplayer. The gesture is more than a technical improvement to the game. It is also a nod to their female players who make up “a huge portion of our fans”, according to Mark Rubin, executive producer at Infinity Ward.

The game trailer also built further hype around the controversial rapper Eminem, by premiering “Survival” from his eighth studio album. Yet to confirm its title and release date, it is already MTV’s most anticipated albums of 2013.

The Grammy-winning Detroit rapper has been on the down-low since 2010’s release “Recovery” which achieved critical and commercial success. The most of what we have seen of him are a few guest appearances on other artists’ albums, including fellow rapper 50 Cent and pop rebel Pink. So you can imagine the eagerness of fans for “Survival” since announcing he has started working on new material over a year ago.

Career comeback of the king of hip-hop and new launch of the best-selling game series…sounds like a combo for publicity win-win to me!
