It's official another Call of Duty game is on its way as if we hadn't expected it. Activision pleased to present you Call of Duty Advance Warfare developed by sledge hammer games. Releasing a full 2 minute reveal trailer on their official twitter page yesterday , staring Kevin spacey as a potential antagonist or potentially protagonist in this year's action pack Call of Duty release. A Kevin Spacey Call of Duty pleases just take my money lol.November 4, 2014 is the date available on: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
According to amazon [Source]
- Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, developed by Sledgehammer Games (co-developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3), harnesses the first three-year, all next-gen development cycle in franchise history.
- Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare envisions the powerful battlegrounds of the future, where both technology and tactic have evolved to usher in a new era of combat for the franchise.
- Delivering a stunning performance the Academy Award winning actor Kevin Spacey stars as Jonathan Irons, one of the most powerful men in the world, shaping this chilling vision of the future of war.
Judging from this amazon post everything in this installment of Call of Duty will be focused on futuristic elements and less about Fish AIs… I hope LOL
An Advanced World:
“Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare takes place in a plausible future in which technological progress and today’s military practices have converged with powerful consequences.
In this carefully researched and crafted vision of the future, Private Military Corporations (PMCs) have become the dominant armed forces for countless nations outsourcing their military needs, redrawing borders and rewriting the rules of war.
And Jonathan Irons, the founder and president of the world’s largest PMC - Atlas Corporation - is at the center of it all.”
So what we can take from this is this and the trailer is this COD is taking place in plausible future where Kevin spacey playing John Irons is the president of PMCs trying to fight for democracy. Um... So yeah we’re fighting rebels while using hi–tech gear, sounds somewhat interesting. Can already see where this going. Either John Irons characters become a tyrant for power he kills you then credits and a sequel or he’ll have us attack and blow up a bunch of stuff to piss off the rebels killing their leader in the process then the sequel.Since it's the first entry very unlikely for multiple endings.
An Advanced Soldier:
"Powerful exoskeletons evolve every aspect of a soldier’s battle readiness, enabling combatants to deploy with an advanced lethality and eliminating the need for specialization.
The introduction of this gameplay mechanic delivers enhanced player movement and verticality through boost jumps and grappling, covert cloaking abilities, and biomechanics that provide unparalleled strength, awareness, endurance, and speed.
With the advent of the exoskeleton and newly advanced armor and weaponry, every soldier commands tactical freedom in any terrain unlike ever before, fundamentally changing the way gamers play Call of Duty across all modes. “
So according to this we’re getting a Crysis type Nano suit thing and no mention of wall running hmm.. Ah but I see the nano gloves in the trailer wells that’s good enough I guess, too bad it's most likely a QTE single play sequence only. But Exoskeleton suit has really been a Crysis domain. Well if they bring something new it’s surely be worth checking out. But looking at the cover art it’s probably strictly for movement and has different grades as seen in the trailer.
An Advanced Arsenal:
"Harnessing the power of next-gen platforms, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare brings players into the battlegrounds of the future by boasting a new hi-tech, advanced arsenal and ability set, arming players with all-new equipment, technology, perks, and vehicles like hoverbikes and highly specialized drones.
Players can also choose between standard ammunition and an all-new class of directed-energy weaponry that enables totally new gameplay dynamics.
And with exoskeletons delivering a massive force multiplier and unprecedented tactical freedom, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare evolves every firefight."
Meh Arsenal sounds like the generic weaponry descriptions. But three points that stands out is hover bikes most likely a single player only thing, just like the horses in Black ops 2 sad face:( Highly specialized drones which are obviously hints of overpowered new kill streaks similar to RC cars and dragon fire drone. Standard ammunition Directed – energy weaponry hmm.. Probably be Gauss rifles and laser rifles I guess. At this point nothing but speculation until we get to see an actual gameplay demo.
All in all this Call of Duty announcement hasn't gotten me excited about Advanced Warfare, Simply because it doesn't showcase any action pumping sequence in the reveal. Though it does seem like they're trying to push COD into a new series, which is likely worth investing into.
Probably wait for an E3 Eminem COD trailer to make it more hyped. But seriously I haven’t paid any attention to COD for the last few years and have been picking them up during sales/clearance. I have yet to play COD: Ghost but after an unpleasant experience on a Steam Free-weekend, I've avoided it ever since. Anyways what are your thoughts, reactions, and are excited about Call of Duty: Advance warfare?
P.S. Steam is having an up 75% off Activision publisher weekend sale, maybe pick up COD game for 50% off.
