    Activision community manager Dan Amrich defends the
    game’s bombastic trailer saying it is “in the realm of
    plausibility”.

    The Call of Duty
    series is well know, some might say, infamous, for its over the top set
    pieces.

    Call of Duty’s attempts to constantly up the ante
    when it comes to these explosion filled, adrenalin inducing moments have led
    to mockery from some quarters as these set pieces increasingly stray into the
    unbelievable.

    It was to the delight of those detractors
    then to find that the latest Call of Duty: Ghosts trailer gave us Call of
    Duty, IN SPACE!

    According to Activision community manager
    Dan Amrich, however, the scenes of orbital bombardment that we see in the
    trailer are not as ridiculous as some might
    expect.

    “Telephone poles from space? It’s actually more science
    than science fiction,” said Amrich, writing on his blog.

    “The
    concept of kinetic bombardment – nicknamed in the science and defense
    communities as ‘Rods from God’ – has been used in sci-fi stories for years by
    authors,” Amrich explains.

    “But it’s also been seriously
    considered by the United States Air Force as a military strike that could
    create mass devastation without nuclear fallout,” Amrich
    continues.

    “In fact, long after IW had committed to the
    concept for Ghosts, a thread about the USAF’s Project Thor showed up on
    Reddit in May of this year, which simultaneously made people involved in CoD
    feel good about their game’s fiction and a bit worried that the ‘catastrophic
    event’ might leak.”

    “Say what you will about its
    over-the-top gameplay and action-movie attitude,” Amrich continues, “but Call
    of Duty still plays in the realm of plausibility.”
