Activision and Sledgehammer Games have just revealed that the latest addition to the Call of Duty ® saga will be released November 4th, with early “Day Zero” access available on November 3rd.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare reignites the excitement of the saga with improvements to multiplayer, incredible additions to movement abilities, and a vast array of customization options.
When asked about the game and its development, Activision Publishing Inc.’s CEO, Eric Hirshberg, says “With Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare we introduced the first new lead developer to the franchise in a decade and our first three-year development cycle, with one mission: bring breakthrough innovation to the franchise, while also honoring its roots. We feel Sledgehammer Games has risen to that challenge, Advanced Warfare introduces significant new mechanics to multiplayer that truly change the game, but more importantly just speaking as a gamer it’s a hell of a lot of fun.”
Creating complex strategies in game promise to be easier in Advanced Warfare as the new game mechanics have expanded the versatility of sight-lines and maneuverability of operatives.
Developing a character that will fight the way you envision may prove to be even more fun than in previous Call of Duty® games. The Create-an-Operator feature will allow players to personalize their solder from head to toe. More customization options become available during game play. As players play they earn points in a new reward system called “Supply Drops”. Additionally, the previous Pick 10 create-a-class has been replaced with even more options for customization and is now rightfully titled Pick 13.
The game will also contain fully customizable scorestreaks which can be included with the class of the player’s choice. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare also adds cooperative scorestreaks which allows players to work on a scorestreak together and experience multiplayer in a new way.
Fan’s will be pleased that some serious advancements in weapon technology are to come with Advance Warfare. The game will debut a new class of focused energy weapons. These weapons will use tactical heat management rather than traditional reloads. Equally exciting, is the promise of a new feature that provides a Virtual Firing Range, this element allows players to practice with their choice weapons before the next match begins.
Finally, 12 modes will be available from the release date. The development of these mods was led by fan-favorites Capture the Flag and Hardpoint. Classic mods like Team Death Match, Domination, and Search and Destroy will be included along with the reveal of Uplink and Momentum.
Whether you are an Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360, or PS3 gamer Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be available to you come November. Please follow us on Twitter @APGNation to keep up with the latest news!
