Activision's Beachhead Studio is working on the companion app for Call of Duty: Ghosts. And while it offers the usual suite of clan management you might expect from such an app, Ghosts senior executive producer Marcus Iremonger says that using it will also yield XP rewards, even if you're not playing in your clan at the time.
Iremonger explained the Clan Wars meta-game to MTV Multiplayer. The companion app will have you fighting over territory, with certain game types yielding more influence in certain areas. "So if you see that you're getting close to getting your Cranked location, you're going to want to go in and play Cranked. So, it's really about a way of giving them something, a very clear goal, an ongoing thing, so there's a leaderboard in there which will show you versus your clans that are fighting against you in that specific area."
He also noted that "every win you have as an individual within a clan works towards those points. So you don't have to be playing with your clan at that specific time, you can be playing on your own as a member of a clan and that will add in as well." That will include offline victories, Iremonger says, and it will yield in-game rewards.
