Activision and Infinity Ward began teasing something called "Extinction" on its Facebook page Sunday. Details quickly leaked out later by someone who apparently already has a copy in their possession reveals that aliens are invading the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC shooter.
"Extinction" appears to be Ghosts answer to the extremely popular Zombies mode from Black Ops and Black Ops II. It will be a fast-paced 1-4 player co-operative multiplayer experience similar to the classic horde mode style of multiple waves of enemies. There is a bit of a twist though as there is mention of a drill that players must be obtained, launched and then protected from the aliens.
The mode will feature tank, weapon specialist, medic, and engineer classes as well as various perks and specialty items.
There are also mentions of the Hive which is presumably what the drill is meant to destroy. The images suggest that players will move from location to location to destroy the hive.
With Call of Duty: Ghosts launching Nov. 5 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, expect official details very soon.
