Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is hitting stores around the world in just over a week and finally, more details are slowly being released about its highly anticipated multiplayer.
The party games that were in Call of Duty: Black Ops were a massive success and fan favourite, so it’s not surprising that the vocal community behind the Call of Duty series has made itself heard about bringing these games back and developer Sledgehammer Games is listening.
In the latest issue of Newsweek Magazine, it has been revealed that Gun Game and Infected will be heading to the next release at launch, as well as ten other multiplayer modes which are; Free for All, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Capture the Flag, Kill Confirmed, Search & Destroy, Search & Rescue, Uplink and Momentum.
It seems like we’re getting the best both of both worlds when it comes to the game modes, both new and old. Are you looking forward to Advanced Warfare? Let us know in the comments below!
A new vision for the blockbuster franchise, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare from Sledgehammer Games, takes players to a future devastated by a global attack. Rising from the chaos is Atlas, a Private Military Corporation led by the cunning Jonathan Irons. With the most powerful military force in the world, Atlas has effectively become a superpower for hire. Playing as Jack Mitchell, suit up in an advanced exoskeleton and join a highly-trained unit committed to restoring order.
The exoskeleton carries over into Multiplayer, where an all-new movement system changes the way players traverse the terrain. Chain together boost actions like jump, dodge, and dash in a fast and fluid style of play. Equip all-new abilities and armaments in the revamped Create-a-Class. Earn additional weapons and gear through in-game Supply Drops, outfitting your operator in the deepest customization experience in franchise history.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches on November 4th 2014
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is available to pre-load now from the Xbox Live Marketplace on Xbox One, and eager fans have wasted no time in dissecting the files and images associated with Achievements. One Achievement in particular that suggests the return of a Zombie mode is a game type connected to the Exo survival mode.
Exo Survivor, is an Achievement unlocked when a player “Successfully Complete the Exo Survival Bonus Wave.” – and the image associated with it is that of Zombies on the rampage in Exo Suits as shown above.
Nothing has been officially confirmed by Sledgehammer Games or Activision, but the release of this years Call of Duty in the way of ‘Advanced Warfare’ is a mere few weeks away. Out November 3rd for those who pre-ordered the Day One Edition and November 4th 2014 for everyone else around the globe.
Eurogamer 2014 at Earls Court (EGX), London on Saturday 27th September was one of the busiest days of the event – and with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare taking a prime central spot on the show floor it looked like it was getting a great deal of the much deserved attention from the fans. For the hardcore and those interested in the art direction of the new franchise addition, Studio Head, Chief Creative Officer and Co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, Glen Schofield, gave a great presentation on the matter which is viewable above.
Having previously played the EGX build at Gamescom ’14 in Cologne, Germany, the new Exoskeleton suit is a major positive highlight! Playing multiplayer has now completely changed within Call of Duty and for the better since you can literally be killed by anyone in any direction – it’s the biggest and most needed change in the history of Call of Duty. 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!
Following the art direction presentation from Glen Schofield, I, along with many others in attendance was granted permission to go to a different room to give further questions and take photographs with the man himself. As thisisxbox.com has a long running piece of history with Modern Warfare 4 rumours since sitting on the plane with the voice actor of Captain Price, I asked the burning question, “Was Modern Warfare 4 considered or ever an option?” Schofield replied “it was considered and discussed, but never taken forward.” before generalising on » Continue Reading.
Power changes everything in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, from the Private Military Corporation-driven storyline in the single-player Campaign to the innovative exoskeleton movements in Multiplayer. Take a look at what makes Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare the total gaming package, including the world premiere of the four-player co-op mode: Exo Survival.
Watch the trailer above and prepare to get a little excited!
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches worldwide from November 4th 2014.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer is set to deliver one of the most game changing experiences in franchise history. Take a closer look at some of the new Multiplayer features, including exoskeleton movement, customization, maps, and modes.
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.

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.
