Call of Duty’s next release is the “most ambitious, most creative game we’ve ever made”, Sledgehammer Games cofounder Glen Schofield said during a GDC session, as reported by Gamespot. Although Sledgehammer is a young studio, its founders created the Dead Space franchise, so that’s quite a big call. The studio is the third leg in Activision’s new Call of Duty three studio scheme, and is responsible for this year’s release, which we’ve nicknamed Call of Duty 2014 or Modern Warfare 4, after an interesting rumour. We’re expecting news over the next few months.

Glad to see there are at least a few companies still keepin' it real. Warner, EA, Activision, Ubi et al. are the only remaining players in the fight against TIGSource and Kickstarter.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been revealed as the new Call of Duty game.

Reveal Trailer:

This trailer blew me away. You can see the influence of both Crysis and Titanfall here, and it makes for some seriously outstanding results. I'll be keeping a much closer eye on Sledgehammer Games now, as it's quite clear that they mean serious business.

A full reveal is scheduled for May 4 on the official site:

"People don't want freedom, they want boundaries, rules."

Baudrillard reader confirmed!

"People need a leader who can give them both the support and the constraints, to keep chaos at bay."

Kick-ass trailer. Kevin Spacey needs to be in every game.

Here’s a breakdown of the game’s features thus far:

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.

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.

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.

Starting today, those who pre-order Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare at retail will receive various bonuses depending on retailer.

“Power Changes Everything” on November 4 for PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. As per usual, all add-on content will be released first on Xbox consoles.

Advanced Warfare is COD's biggest technological leap since Call of Duty 2: ... h-analysis

Thomas Morgan wrote:From this early reveal of Advanced Warfare, we're left to consider some clear highlights in advance of its November release. Call of Duty: Ghosts iterated upon existing engine tech - realistically the only option available in a compressed development window - but Sledgehammer Games certainly seem intent on making the most from the new hardware. Its E3 build shows huge promise, with a materials-based lighting system and revamped motion capture tech in particular pointing - at last - to a genuine next-gen entry in the series.

While the resolution increase over Ghosts on Xbox One is obviously welcome, the 30-40fps frame-rate issues found in the E3 demo are clearly a concern bearing in mind how greatly the series' interface between player and game relies on low latency controls - practically demanding a 60fps refresh. This has all the intentions of being the most pristinely presented, cinematic Call of Duty title yet, but the worry here is that Sledgehammer may not hit the 60fps target while raising the bar visually.

Of course, how the final code stacks up come its 4th November release is something we're eager to discover. Advanced Warfare is a gorgeous-looking game in its current state, but our hope is that the team is concentrating its efforts on optimisation, an area where there are some positive signs on the horizon. Resolution is something that can, as ever, be scaled back as a last resort. But there's also the not-so-small matter of GPU resources being freed from Kinect duties, which could go some way to making up the difference. Just how great an impact optimisation and XDK revisions will have on the final game remains to be seen, but hopefully Sledgehammer Games will get the balance right and deliver an advanced next-gen engine with the slick performance that has defined the series.

Amazing. Why can't these fucking games have co-op?

Also, I don't want to fight Kevin Spacey in this game. I hope I won't have to.

Multiplayer Reveal Trailer: ... r-revealed


Activision and Sledgehammer Games unveiled the multiplayer mode for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare during a special event in Cologne today.

The upcoming Call of Duty‘s multiplayer promises to offer the “deepest customization” and “player engagement features” in franchise history.


With the all-new exoskeleton, players can boost jump, dodge, dash, slide, slam and more as the action goes vertical, while using future-tech, cutting-edge capabilities and a brand-new weapon class as part of nearly 350 custom weapons.

Reward System

Offering a new reward system, including more than 1,000 in-game player rewards, and nearly limitless customization options that create more than 2 billion unique player combinations and more, the title offers the most in-depth, robust and advanced Call of Duty multiplayer experience ever on both next generation and current generation systems.


The much loved Pick 10 create-a-class is back with even more customizable options than before with Pick 13. Gamers can now choose their favorite scorestreaks, which are fully customizable, and include them in their preferred class, raising the bar on personalization from top to bottom. The introduction of co-operative scorestreaks also allows friends to experience Call of Duty multiplayer together in a new way, as for the first time ever, two players can now join a scorestreak and work co-operatively.

Advanced Weaponry

The technology of the future in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare wouldn’t be complete without advancement in weapon technology, beginning with the debut of a directed energy class of weapons. This all-new weapon class for Call of Duty uses the power of focused energy to overcome enemies and relies on tactical heat management instead of reloads. Players can test out this new class, along with all their weapons, on the new Virtual Firing Range, a brand new feature that allows players to instantly test-drive their favorite weapon loadout with the click of a button before the next match starts.

12 Game Modes

Featuring 12 modes out of the box on day one, led by fan-favorites Capture the Flag and Hardpoint, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare‘s multiplayer modes not only include classics such as Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Search and Destroy, but also new options for the playlist such as Uplink and Momentum, a new take on the classic War mode.


Sledgehammer Games is also taking personalization to the next level with Create-an-Operator, a new character system, which allows players to personalize their soldier however they want from heads, helmets, eyewear, shirts, vests, kits, gloves, pants, knee-guards, boots and even the exoskeleton itself. Create-an-Operator is bolstered by a brand new reward system called Supply Drops. The more someone plays, the more they earn. Supply Drops can contain anything from custom weapons to unique character gear in different classes of rarity, all giving players multiplayer bragging rights.

Virtual Lobby

In addition to showing off their Supply Drops gear in-game, the new Virtual Lobby lets players display their hard-earned challenge rewards and rare items, while waiting for the map to start. Billions of possible combinations exist, allowing gamers to personalize nearly everything on their in-game operator from head to toe. Players can finally see what their friends and opponents are bringing to the match, as the Virtual Lobby is a quick and easy way to size up the competition and also plan your next move in create-an-operator.

Additionally, Activision also announced a ‘Day Zero Edition’ of the game, which will offer fans 24-hour early access to the game starting November 3. It is available on all platforms to customers who pre-order the game and pick up on day zero at no added cost. In addition to early access, it also includes two new, custom weapons as well as the previously announced ‘Advanced Arsenal’ incentive.
