Third party games, when they’re actually coming, haven’t had a good run as of late on the Wii U and things aren’t going to get any better with Call of Duty: Ghosts.
An intrepid reader sent us an image this morning of lads magazine Zoo Weekly, on the back of it an advert for Call of Duty Ghosts. Nothing special there, it even says the game is coming to the Wii U – something that some adverts completely miss out on.
The advert shows off the bonus preorder map Free Fall, you get the map if you preorder the game – it’s the small text under that got our readers attention though. “FreeFall bonus map not available on Wii U”
Activision have previously confirmed the map for Wii U, so we emailed them to find out more and our fears were confirmed. The Free Fall bonus map isn’t coming to the Wii U at launch, if at all.
Our local Acitivision rep had the following to say “It’s just not confirmed for the day one release, but there is definitely a chance that it will become available at a later stage”.
We weren’t able to confirm if this was just for Australia or it will affect the rest of the world. Hopefully if it’s just the former if we’re not getting the DLC at all.
It’s also been confirmed that the Wii U version of Ghosts will not receive Clan support in game further adding salt to the woud.
Definitely not the most iron clad of chances then. Lloyd know the score.
