Well, we thought we’d have to wait until the countdown on the official site ended before we’d learn more about the next Call of Duty game, but in an odd twist of events, a trailer appeared, some details were leaked, and suddenly Activision and Sledgehammer Games released new screenshots of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Following on the details we reported yesterday, Advanced Warfare has a focus on private military companies. And, as the name suggests, it has a more futuristic setting than what we’ve seen from other entries in the series. It’s set in the year 2054, and you are an elite soldier working for the Atlas Corporation, run by Jonathan Irons (portrayed by actor Kevin Spacey).
The trailer sets the tone for the story and also hints at new gameplay elements, with features like exoskeleton armor, cloaking technology, and hoverbikes, although we don’t have full details on those yet. The trailer also reveals locations like Lagos, Nigeria and San Francisco, USA, which presents some interesting possibilities. Where else do you hope Advanced Warfare will take you?
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will release on November 4. Share your thoughts, hopes, and expectations for this game in the comments below.
