Activision last night lifted the lid on the multiplayer elements in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
It promises to fundamentally change Call of Duty multiplayer, delivering new player movements and capabilities, along with the deepest customisation and player engagement features in franchise history.
There is brand new exoskeleton, which players are able to 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. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare also offers a new reward system, which includes more than 1,000 in-game player rewards and nearly limitless customisation 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 system.
They have also revealed the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition. This gives fans 24-hour early access to the game starting 3rd November. The Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition is available on all platforms to customers who pre-order the game and pick up on day zero – at no added cost. Collector’s Edition copies of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will also be available for Day Zero early purchase and play and will include the special Day Zero Edition content. In addition to the early access of up to 24 hours in some territories, the Day Zero Edition also includes two new, custom weapons as well as the previously announced Advanced Arsenal incentive. Activision Publishing, Inc.’s CEO, Eric Hirshberg stated:
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 honouring its roots. We feel Sledgehammer Games has risen to that challenge. Advanced Warfare introduces significant new mechanics to multiplayer that truly changes the game, but more importantly just speaking as a gamer it’s a hell of a lot of fun.
The game has been three years in the making, and gives a new level of combat on all platforms, beginning with the power of the new exoskeleton. There are a vast amount of strategic options available, whilst still staying true to the Call of Duty Multiplayer experience fans have come to know and love. The Pick 10 create-a-class is back with even more customisable options than before with Pick 13. With this, players can pick their favourite scorestreaks, which are customizable. There are also co-operative scorestreaks, allowing 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.
Weapon technology has also undergone a massive advancement, with a new 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 favourite weapon loadout with the click of a button before the next match starts. There are 12 modes available on day one, including Capture the Flag and Hardpoint. There are also modes such as eam Deathmatch, Domination and Search and Destroy. New modes include Uplink and Momentum, a new take on the classic War mode.
Create-an-Operator also debuts in the game, which is a new character system, allowing players to personalise 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. The Virtual Lobby is also new to the experience, allowing players to display their hard-earned challenge rewards and rare items, while waiting for the map to start. Billions of possible combinations exist, allowing gamers to personalise 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.
