It was only two months ago that the games press were in downtown LA for E3.

This week Activision gave us a compelling reason to come back as they were ready to pull the cover off the multiplayer component of their upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts. The presentation had all the markings of an E3 keynote, kicked off by Activision's Eric Hirshberg.

Along with a loud and effective reveal trailer, the relatively comprehensive hour-long presentation was followed with an afternoon of hands-on time with the game, not to mention more hands-on time with Xbox One controllers.
