Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare announced
New shooter coming this November
Activision and new developers Sledgehammer Games have revealed Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
The new game was 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.
The plot takes place in a plausible future in which technological progress and today’s military practices have converged with powerful consequences. 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, played by Academy Award winning actor Kevin Spacey, is the founder and president of the world’s largest PMC - Atlas Corporation.
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 promises enhanced player movement and verticality through boost jumps and grappling, covert cloaking abilities, and biomechanics that provide unparalleled strength, awareness, endurance, and speed.
The game hopes to bring players to 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 new gameplay dynamics.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare arrives on November 4th, 2014 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.
