As you may know, in the past Call of Duties that had Zombies in it, it all concluded a major storyline in it about Dr. Maxis making the zombies then Richtofen taking over and "Samantha Maxis," and all that other complicated stuff. Well, have you ever wondered if Extinction Mode ever has a storyline? I know it relates to the same thing as Campaign where ODIN bombs cities. And then 2 weeks after that, Extinction Mode happens? When this came to my mind, I looked all over Youtube for some kind storyline explanation to this, but I couldn't come close to a fully detailed story line thing, so I decided to try and examine what the characters say and how they could be a possibility to the storyline. Here's my theory.
First off, I listened at the beginning to what Inspector12 said before he got on the chopper. The first thing he said that I found strange was: "This place has been a bloody battleground since these things were unearthed." Unearthed? Well, if you think about it, the ODIN satellite wasn't some alien spaceship or anything, so everybody wonders how they got here. My theory is that they are indeed aliens, but they are from this Earth. Unearthed exact definition: www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/unearthed If you looked at the definition in the link, it means to find out of the Earth, so these aliens are not from outer space, they're not extraterrestrials, they are from underground, and when ODIN hit, they came from underground after being there for a long time or something. Another thing that I find strange is that the characters know what to call these creatures. Do the characters know something about how these aliens got here? I mean, the aliens can't just be underground unnoticed for centuries because we have mines, and underground vaults and things like that. So, did like a scientist do something to produce creatures and hide them underground or something? And also, the meteors if you notice don't come from the sky, they grow from underground. I think one of these characters are hiding something, kind of like Sam from CoD: Zombies was the only one to speak with Richtofen. The Hives... how did they get there? My explanation: They grew from underground and produce more aliens, so maybe the aliens are actually from plants that grew from underground. This is just my theory, so this source isn't 100% accurate, so please don't give me hate if you have other explanations.
I haven't got the game so haven't been able to play this mode yet. But how you described it sounds a little like the newest "War of the Worlds" and how the machines that they used to invade Earth were buried here many many years in advance.
That strikes me as being a little too deep for CoD lol
Sounds interesting, all the same. I feel more likely to play this mode than I was for Zombies.
I think BobbyMcGee plays a lot of these kinda of modes. I'm don't know if he's as enthusiastic about Extinction but he might be able to shed a little light on this or bring a good counter-arguement for you.
I'm also not sure if this is the best part of the board for discussing this? I think they have a part of the forum just for this mode and all players from all platforms can discuss it. You might find some good discussion on there about it.
If you play this game, you'll find some really strange things in extinction mode. and you're right, I should be posting in the Extinction Mode area of this platform. Sorry, I'm new to this.
No worries, It's all good. It was just that it sounds like you put some thought into it so you might find good discussion with other players of this mode at the right place.
Here is the link: GHOSTS EXTINCTION
Also, here is a link that you might like to bookmark: Forums
That holds a list of all the sub-forums for CoD: Ghosts. Should make it easier to find your way around.
