Call of Duty Ghosts Update Adds New Game Mode Reinforce

The latest Call of Duty: Ghosts update, pushed out yesterday for all platforms, gives you an excuse to go back to the game, or a shiny new mode to try if you’re still playing.
According to the official Call of Duty site:
Reinforce is a round-based game mode that takes elements from Domination and Search and Rescue. There are three objective markers for teams to capture and respawns are disabled. If a team captures a point, they are “reinforced” and all dead teammates are allowed back into the round. There are multiple ways to win a round: Wipe out the entire enemy team, control two objective points when the time limit runs out, or capture all three flags for an instant victory. The first team to win four rounds wins the match.
The latest update also adds a number of other updates, including a nerf to the Bizon, bugfixes, and anti-cheat measures.
