Still bitter about John "Soap" MacTavish's last outing in the Call of Duty series? We can't rewrite the past, but we can ignore Call of Duty canon and visit with an old friend in Call of Duty: Ghosts' multiplayer. Soap returns to the series as Ghosts' latest Legend Pack character and - what's that? Vladimir Makarov was the most recent Legend Pack? Talk about awkward reunions.
You can buddy up with Soap for $3.99, which also grants a customization pack with a unique targeting reticle, weapon camo, patch, player card and background. You don't have to dig up the past to get fresh customization though, as Activision and Infinity Ward have also released new Personalization Packs, running $1.99 apiece. You can check out Heartlands, Hex, Molten, Eyeballs, 1987 and Blunt Force - which covers your weapon in cannabis leaves - on the Call of Duty Micro Items site to see if their styles interest you.
The Soap and Personalization Packs are currently only on Xbox Live, but they won't remain exclusive forever - a press release reminds us that dates for the content to reach other platforms "will follow."
The Soap Legend Pack allows players to battle it out as the iconic Captain John 'Soap' MacTavish with an accompanying themed weapon camo, reticle, playercard, patch and background.
