Ghosts Update Adds Reinforce Game Mode

Infinity Ward has released an updated for Call of Duty: Ghosts on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, which comes with various bug fixes and weapon tweaks, as well as an all new mode, Reinforce Mode.

Reinforce mode is a team-based game mode, with some interesting concepts. Once a player is killed, he will not respawn until another team member captures a control point. This gives teams multiple ways to win the game; either by holding two control points, wiping out the enemy team, or capturing all three flags on the map.

Although not a purely competitive mode, this could make for an interesting Insta-Clash Cup for the CoD: Ghosts Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) 2014, as teams could devise multiple strategies and ways to win a map.

Reinforce mode is currently only available through the Private Match function.
