Call of Duty: Ghosts Takes Place in Venezuela, May Center on Arms Trade Industry
Or just the metal Tungsten. Yes, seriously.
Some new information has been provided on the official website for Infinity Ward’s upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts. The developer has provided two new sets of numbers and a set of words on the site’s page, which provide a few clues as to the setting and theme of the game.
First off, the above numbers are actually a set of coordinates. Enter them into Google Maps, and you’ll find the location listed as Caracas, Venezuela. Nothing out of the ordinary unless you count that both the capital Caracas and Venezuela have the highest per capita murder rates in the world. Yes, even more than Chicago.
There are many poor neighbourhoods located around the capital of Caracas, which are reportedly dangerous at all times and feature many unsolved murders and crimes. This would seemingly fit in with the theme of the Ghosts protecting those who can’t protect themselves.
The second image indicates a random number, which was revealed to be the atomic mass of Tungsten. Tungsten is an important element in the arms industry and is reportedly powerful enough to be used in orbital strikes to replace nukes.
The third image, added recently, is a little weirder. It simply states, “You start to forget…The things you should remember”. Again related to righting the wrongs taking place – perhaps alluding to the fact that criminals can’t get away with murder?
Activision promises a full reveal of Ghosts at Microsoft’s next Xbox event on May 21st. We already know that it will be releasing for PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U and Xbox 360.
