The war between Call of Duty and Battlefield series is one of the biggest in video games, and both franchises constantly seek to outdo the other. Both series are releasing new games in time to hit the critical transition period between the current console and their next-gen successors, and seek to dominate the market on both generations of consoles. Recently, Activision revealed the multiplayer component of Call of Duty: Ghosts, and EA had previously detailed the multiplayer for Battlefield 4 as early as E3. But how do the two games match up in terms of their multiplayer?
While Battlefield 4 may have been the first to reveal their multiplayer, they now have fallen behind Call of Duty: Ghosts in terms of letting fans know what will be in the game. However, it is known that Battlefield 4 will feature 64 player maps with dynamic maps that players will be able to explore. DICE has gone all out to make this giant matches impressive, and they may be the highlight of the whole Battlefield 4 experience. Battlefield 4 will also offer tablet connectivity and gameplay in certain modes. The maps will have huge amounts of destructible items within them, and while Ghosts will have similar features the dynamic events in Battlefield 4 are on a much bigger scale so far.
Call of Duty: Ghosts was shown to have a variety of new modes to partake in, including Cranked, which was the mode of the very first public Call of Duty: Ghosts match. Activision and Infinity Ward have gone all out to make the game a true benchmark for first person shooters, giving players a huge amount of customization to play around with, as well as a host of new modes to try out in Ghosts. Between the new modes scattered across the traditional online modes, Squad game modes, and Clan Wars features, Ghosts will offer users plenty of variety when the game is released November 5. Plus, zombies mode was not addressed at the livestream, so there is the potential that the popular mode could make an appearance in the game as well.
Both game will feature player profiles that can travel with users wherever they go. Battlefield 4 will have Battlelog, and Call of Duty will have Call of Duty accounts. Both will allow stats to carry over from the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 version of the game to the next-gen versions found for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This will be a handy feature that could prove popular, especially if large amounts of players start on one console and then jump to the next gen console.
Overall, both games are fairly evenly matched now, and fans of both series are unlikely to jump ship to the other, as they both will most likely prove to be worthy pickups for gamers on current and next-gen platforms.
