Advanced Warfare patch released: 15 new prestiges & more weapon balancing

call of duty advanced warfare

A brand spankin’ new patch is currently being deployed to Advanced Warfare and it contains plenty of changes and additions.

The new update contains 15 (yes, fifteen) new prestiges, as the current 15 just isn’t enough for some players, as well as adding a grand master prestige rank if you manage to grind through all 30 of them.  So, that’ll keep people busy for another few months at least.

That’s not all, Sledgehammer Games have been hard at work making slight adjustments to the current arsenal of weapons in the game to help even out the playing field. The most notable change in this update is the increased movement speed with LMG’s and the slight nerf to the ASM1 SMG’s rate of fire.

Esport fans will also be pleased to hear that the broadcaster mode has also received a notable face lift and it now looks fabulous. Just in time for Call of Duty Championships too!

Full details below for the 4th March 2015 update via Charlie Intel.

      Full Royalty Character Loot Set unlocked. Connectivity Optimizations Connectivity and matchmaking improvements when in a party. Added 15 Master Prestige ranks and Grand Master Prestige. Added 15 more Daily Supply Drop Challenges. Fixed a rare issue where players were not able to spawn into the game. Fixed the sound of the SAC3 with the Suppressor Attachment to not play in stereo to all players on the map. Fixed a rare issue where players would spawn without a gun. Players will now be shown a “Player does not own the map pack” message when a player without the Havoc DLC joins their party. Added the ability for purchased Create-A-Class slots to appear in Private Matches. [Xbox One] Connectivity improvement to Xbox Live servers when returning from Energy-Saving mode.

Advanced Warfare Championship Pack now out, it’s pretty fancy

image-10-copy-620x360

Call of Duty Championship 2015 takes place in just a few months time and to help build a lil’ bit of hype, Sledgehammer Games have just dropped a brand new pack of skins revolving around the tournament and it’s now available on Xbox Live.

For just $3.99, you can get your hands on the premium Championship 2015 bundle which contains a themed exoskeleton, weapon camouflages, calling card, helmet and reticules. Best of all? It’s covered in gold from top to bottom, as you can see above.

I think this is one of the first times in Call of Duty history where the gold gun camo is well, actually gold, unlike past attempts which have been mustard/off yellow colour.

If that isn’t enough, you can also purchase additional create-a-class and armory slots which add tonnes of new room for just $1.99 a piece.

Disappointingly, Activision have yet to detail whether any of the money from these pack will go towards the Championship 2015 prize pool, similar to what plenty of other eSport tournaments have done in the past.

Breaking News! Another Call of Duty will be released this year!

I strongly recommend you take a seat before you read any further as this will blow your mind.

Treyarch have just confirmed on Twitter that they’re currently developing a Call of Duty title and it’ll be launching this year.

COD in 2015 confirmed. We look forward to carrying on the conversation…that is, if we haven’t started it already. #InDevelopment

— Treyarch Studios (@Treyarch) February 5, 2015

The Call of Duty series is currently being worked on by three different studios, each releasing a title once every three years. Treyarch in 2012, Infinity Ward in 2013, Sledgehammer Games in 2014 and Treyarch in 2015. It’s a pretty great pattern as it’ll hopefully mean games receiving plenty of polish and tonnes of new features.

Treyarch and David Vonderhaar have been teasing details about this upcoming title for a few days now and it’s so far seems to be pointing in the direction of a return to World War II.

You can’t help but be slightly curious as it’s been a bloody long time since we’ve had a truly great World War II title.

Advanced Warfare – meet the KillCameraman Randall Higgins

call of duty advanced warfare

There’s tongue in cheek trailers and then there’s Call of Duty trailers – this time the team at Sledgehammer are dressing up their Havoc DLC announcement trailer with an amusing look at just who is behind the Kill cams of COD.

Randall Higgins is the man, the KillCameraman and he gets himself into some rather amusing situations in order to grab those kill cams. Of course the main attraction is a look at the Havoc DLC – the first DLC pack for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.

Available to download from January 27, the DLC includes four new maps, bonus weapons and Exo Zombies – the new co-op mode that could almost be a stand alone game.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Banhammer Incoming

call of duty advanced warfare

Sledgehammer Games’ co-founder Michael Condrey has taken to the companies official blog to address an ongoing and increasing problem that is affecting Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare community.

Michael Condrey has detailed that players who partake in what is known as ‘reverse boosting’ will soon be clobbered by the mighty metaphorical banhammer.

If you’re not quite sure what reverse boosting is, let me give you a semi-detailed explanation: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare uses a skill based matchmaking system which overall leads to fairer and more equal matches taking place but unfortunately, some players are abusing this system by intentionally killing themselves/feeding the enemy team, forcing their ‘skill rating’ to go down, ruining the experience for everyone.

In other words, if you play like an ass and ruin other players experience, just so you can play against people worse than you, a ban will most likely be heading your way very soon. Always great to see a company continue to support its game and remove toxic players from online play.

 

 

What makes a good “Twist”?

Star-Wars-Knights-of-the-Old-Republic-20-1280x960

Given the content of this article, it should be clear from the get go that this is going to be a spoiler heavy article. I’ll be sure to mention the name of a particular game IN BOLD before giving away it’s twists to give enough time for you to hit the emergency close button should it need to be utilised.

Everyone loves a good twist right? A turn in the tale that nobody (save a few smart alecs) saw coming. If I were to pose you the question of “what are your favorite gaming moments?” I’m sure that there would be a few good twists in there. The same can be said of TV shows and movies.

Like all good things however, they can turn sour when used too much. Both the first Saw movie and The Sixth Sense had big twist endings that were very popular. So in an attempt to recapture that particular lightning in a bottle, the rest of the Saw series, plus a lot of M. Night Shyamalan’s later movies, followed in suit with big shocking reveals in the final reel. However, they were usually criticised for feeling forced, unnecessary and simply being a twist for the sake of a twist.

This brings up a few questions: What makes a good twist? Are there set rules or parameters to follow?

Lets take a look at one of my favorite twists (from one of my favorite games) of all time as a case study. STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC. You play as a simple soldier in the republic who eventually becomes a Jedi. Your masters marvel at your skills and you’re set out on a mission to save the galaxy. So far so basic. Just past the halfway point, however, you come face to » Continue Reading.
