Thisisxbox.com went hands-on with Sledgehammer’s sole entry into the greatest FPS franchise during Gamescom 2014.
With the Exoskeleton suit new strategies have to be thought through since enemies can climb buildings, jump higher, acquire tactical playing abilities such as shields, and it all seems to distance the age-old tradition of sitting in corners with Sniper Rifles – finally “Camping” might have been wiped out in Advanced Warfare! This new feature for Call of Duty has been seen in other games before; (before everyone starts chanting Titanfall clone) keep in mind that development for Advanced Warfare and Titanfall was around the same time period – and both have copied elements from Bungie’s developed Halo games! It is hard not to think of Halo: Reach when anything jetpack styled and futuristic soldier suits are concerned, but the underlying core of the gameplay is still a familiar Call of Duty territory albeit a new futuristic step in time.

Sledgehammer Games has finally released more information about the new feature in Advanced Warfare multiplayer, simply known as supply drops.
If you’ve played Counter Strike: Global Offensive or Battlefield 4, you’ll be familiar with this new feature to the Call of Duty franchise. As you play Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, you’ll earn experience and rank up like you traditionally would, unlocking weapons and gear as you progress but you’ll now have a random chance at receiving a supply drop crate while playing or completing challenges.
These supply drops contain over 1,000 pieces of unique gear, split into three categories; weapon loot, character gear and reinforcement. Each of these three categories has a varying level of rarity which are enlisted, professional and elite.
The majority of the gear included in the supply drops is cosmetic however weapon loot can have different stats to the base weapon model, such as having a higher fire rate but a lower overall damage per bullet.
What do you think of supply drops? A neat addition to the Call of Duty franchise? Let us know in the comments below!
With an Xbox gamer tag known as “Jason of Duty” – it might come as no surprise that I am a huge fan of the Call of Duty franchise right from its very early World War II days; despite being disappointed with the past two games, (Ghosts, Infinity ward – Black Ops II, Treyarch) I am pinning all my hopes on Sledgehammer Games delivering a fresh new take with their own original title this year. Based upon everything I witnessed during Gamescom 2014 in Cologne, I am excited to say that I am very impressed with Advanced Warfare! If you didn’t know already it is the first Call of Duty to use a totally brand new (as in brand new, not IW’s updated crap) engine since Call of Duty 2 and looks every bit a true next-gen title as you should expect!
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare had an extended campaign premiere during the Xbox Gamescom ’14 briefing which showcased vivid scenes of the Golden Gate Bridge being blown apart with intense thrills that appeared to replicate the over-the-top action packed drama experienced from past Modern Warfare games in the franchise. Although this is Advanced Warfare – it appears that everything learnt from Sledgehammer’s co-development in Modern Warfare 3 on last-gen consoles could have made the transition into their own game as I sat there during the conference in awe. With my jaw dropped I knew upon first impressions that this was a Call of Duty that could make gaming history and I was hooked into every minute of the chases and fire-fighting gameplay on screen as the bridge was rapidly being destroyed. The game looks set to make you feel the drama of the character with a journey of hope, comradeship and defeating all the odds for what » Continue Reading.
