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, April 15, revealing that wrapper 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 Dogg 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 Dogg 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 April 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 Dogg is the second wrapper 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 Feb. 2014.
