Professional basketball players DeAndre Jordan, Nick Young and Anthony Bennett got an early taste of the next generation of Call of Duty, with Call of Duty: Ghosts at the game’s exclusive, invite-only multiplayer reveal event.
Held Wednesday at the Event Deck at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles, the pro players were among the first people in the world to go hands-on with Call of Duty: Ghosts, along with nearly 300 gaming media enthusiasts from around the world.
In addition to joining the attending media at the event, Jordan, Young and Bennett got to play alongside a handful of U.S. Marines and professional, competitive Call of Duty players – all experiencing the new features in the next generation of Call of Duty, including game-changing dynamic map events, new tactical player movements, and an arsenal of new multiplayer maps, game modes, etc.
“It’s crazy that I’m at this exclusive event,” said Anthony Bennett, #1 overall draft pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Bennett continued, “Playing the game with the new features and new maps with the Marines has been very cool, and our team won both times so it’s been a great opportunity.”
