Activison and Infinity Ward continue to surprise “Call of Duty: Ghosts” fans with never before seen content. This time, the official “Call of Duty” YouTube channel posted a new video on Tuesday, Apr. 15, revealing that rapper Calvin Broadus, who is best known as Snoop Dogg, will be featured in a new multiplayer announcer package that is set to release later this month.
In the one minute, twenty second video, Snoop explains that he's excited to have his voice associated with a game that is “so hip and so hood.” He added that “Call of Duty: Ghosts” is the “coolest game in the hood,” and that nine out of 10 wrappers play it. Snoop also mentioned that he believes the writers at Activison and Infinity Ward did a good job of creating lines for him. He added: “they know my flavor.”
The Snoop Dogg voice pack is set to launch on Xbox LIVE on Apr. 22 along with a variety of other customization items. The release date for this DLC for other platforms like PlayStation and PC will be announced at a later date.
The other customization items that are set to be released include all new legend packs, new weapons personalization packs, and a second voice pack featuring R. Lee Ermey. These packs will range in price from $1.99 to $3.99, with the voice packs selling for $2.99 each.
Snoop is the second rapper to put his touch on “Call of Duty: Ghosts.” The first was Marshall Mathers, who is best known as Eminem. Eminem's single “Survival” was/is used as the theme song for “Call of Duty: Ghosts.”
The “Call of Duty” franchise launched in 2003. The series, which has been both first-person and third-person, has inspired 10 chapters of the game, and no less than 10 spin-offs. Statisticbrain.com reports that the “Call of Duty” franchise sold an estimated 139,600,000 units as of February of 2014.
