‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Motivates Players With ‘Drill Instructor’ Voice Pack

Published 1 year ago by

While the Call of Duty franchise has always juggled the realistic with the bombastic and over-the-top, in recent years the series has also taken on a completely new personality. With the advent of features like Riley the Dog and plenty of clever downloadable content, the latest COD entry, Call of Duty: Ghosts, has proven that the billion dollar franchise still has a sense of humor. It started with the addition of Michael Myers to the Onslaught DLC, continued with the Predator crossover for the Devastation DLC, and now things are getting even crazier with the introduction of voice packs.

Although voice packs are nothing new for the Call of Duty franchise, the first two revealed for Call of Duty: Ghosts have been something else. First, there was the reveal of the Snoop Dogg voice pack, which added the dulcet tones of the rapper and media mogul to Ghosts‘ multiplayer experience, and now the new ‘Drill Instructor’ voice pack adds a harder edge.

The ‘Drill Instructor’ pack introduces some urgency into the proceedings in the form of R. Lee Ermey barking out orders left and right. For a closer look at the DLC voice pack, check out the trailer above.

Obviously, there are plenty of voices that could do well as drill instructors, but Infinity Ward and Activision made the smart choice by going with real life drill instructor and actor R. Lee Ermey (Full Metal Jacket, Toy Story). Many might not know Ermey’s name, or even his face, but it’s hard to mistake his voice.

Call of Duty Ghosts Drill Instructor Pack

While the focal point of most Call of Duty releases’ DLC schedule is typically the four sets of map packs, Infinity Ward is apparently bolstering that content with a few extra bells and whistles like the Captain Price multiplayer skin. And, as has previously been mentioned, there is a new set of customization items slated to hit Call of Duty: Ghosts on April 22nd that includes the aforementioned Snoop Dogg Voice Pack, this Drill Instructor Voice Pack, a multiplayer skin pack that may include Soap MacTavish, and who knows what else.

The Call of Duty franchise may be struggling to hold gamers’ attention as strongly as it once did – despite the series still selling very well – but there is plenty of extra content for loyal players to sink their teeth into. Alongside the new, fun guessing game of what movie monster will join a future DLC pack, we now have another game: what voice will be added to Ghosts next.

What do you think of the ‘Drill Instructor’ voice pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts? Are there any other iconic voices you think Infinity Ward should add to their game?

Call of Duty: Ghosts‘ ‘Drill Instructor’ Pack releases April 22, 2014.

    at this point cod is a free to play game that you need to pay £50 for. these micro transactions are insane. i cant believe they do sht like this when they come out every year, you would assume these would be in the game already or at the very least free

    • iamanning42

      Free to play games usually have microtransactions that help you get ahead and give you the edge. These are just pointless additions that don’t help your performance in any way. I’m not saying I would buy them, They’re really just a waste of money that you think is cool for 5 minutes. But if people want to waste their money on them, have at it.

      • XZ3R0

        Yea you’re right League of Legends and Path of Exile’s microtransactions are OP.

  • SyKo Relapse

    Younger guys might not give a crap about this but being ex-military and a huge fan of Gunny Ermey and several movies he’s played in, some people, like me, might love this. You people gotta realize that if you don’t spend money into the economy then you wont get any product worth spending the money on. What if you made something and put it into the market, wouldn’t you like to make money off of it?

    You know what’d be cool would be Morgan freeman.

    i never played CoD:Ghosts, but i want you all to know how much i hate CoD:Ghosts, there is nothing any of you can do to change that. there is nothing good I have to say about this game or any other game out there.

    CoD is a steaming pile of trash, no amount of celebrity voices and famous horror icons can change that. PERIOD.

    • USM_Teufelhund

      Seriously? I can understand that you never plan on playing it. But there is no way you can say you hate it without having eversion play it.

        Random Fact: Exodude’s a Troll…

        • Iggy777

          By the way i’m not trying to defend COD Ghost. picked it up once and reminded me why i began and stopped at MW2.

      • Exodude

        i will not go into detail why i hate this game there is no point you all know why i hate this game you all hate this game you all hate this game but if you dont then you are idiots

        if you blew money on this game then wow… just wow… people think that eating boogers is stoopid, but you just went full ‘tarted

        the only way i would play this game is if a friend begged me to play it for a month, i would play it for about 20 minutes, then jump on my bike, bike to his house toss it through his window and never talk to him again. i did something similar with GTA Sand Andrea, and another game i forgot what the name was

          This is getting sad… You need help. I don’t like CoD either, but you need some friends or something. Being a professional troll is not healthy I would imagine. You have NOTHING good to say about any game. You are a troll, go away.

            You know what’s sad? Comments from Exodude and Big Baby Jesus are coming from the same IP Address.

        • zach

          dude i hate COD with a passion but ever since my friend sent me a code to download Ghosts, ive enjoyed it. You oughta not get on this site just to voice your opinion when mostly everyone is enjoying it.

      Why are you posing as two different people Big Baby Jesus?

      • Big Baby Jesus

        Considering that I share a place with a few other people, share the same computer and those of us that go to this site hate Exodude (the real Exodude, that is), this makes sense now that I think about it… Makes my day too.

        • hanzo

          This stream of comments was actually more interesting that the article itself lol Im staying tuned just to see how much further it will go

      • Aaron

        LOL! I love that the troll has been busted. Thanks for posting that, Anthony. I have come across this a lot actually…trolls trying to be slick by logging into one one account, posting something to tick others off, then replying to themselves under a different name. It’s pretty sad, but also hilarious.

      What exactly do you mean by that? Maybe you missed the fact that he’s an actor?

  • hudsmack

    I love Mr. Ermey and his portrayals on-screen, but this is just a sad addition to sad game. Ghosts is crap, and this won’t make it any better.

  • Aaron

    If only Ghosts multiplayer were fun, I would be experiencing this. I played the single player campaign, which is fun, but played the multiplayer for about a month because it sucks so badly. I went back to Black Ops 2, which blows Ghosts away.

  • Michael aka STREET S0LD13R

    Just curious but why are you game designers and producers worried about adding new features and characters and skins when the game and fans need fixes, for instance, the spawning in this game is the worst in any game with a spawn system. I can’t believe how bad it is. Spawning is so bad that I wave literally spawned into crossfire, enemys, dogs, ied”s and more. The spawning system is what needs fixing and that I’d why you guys are struggling to keep gamers on this one. I have been with cod since the first modern warfare when they gained their fans like me. I have also heard everyone else talking about the spawns as well. Just fix the spawns so that you don’t spawn near enemies not just out of sight because we ALL know that out of sight does not mean they won’t be right behind you when you do spawn. Fix them or I will upload all my crappy spawn videos to YouTube and show and potential games how bad it is. Thank you and i hope you guys do what’s best for the gamers not yourselves.
