Your first look at Call of Duty’s Exo Survival mode

2 min read


Call of Duty’s Zombies mode first appeared in Treyarch’s World at War. It brought a co-operative mode to the series, and since then something much like it has featured in just about every Call of Duty. Last year’s one, Extinction, had you facing swarms of aliens as a co-operative group of four. Much like Ghosts itself, it’s possibly the weakest additional mode in a Call of Duty game to date. The one coming in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare looks rather good.

This year’s COD’s superfluous mode is called Exo Survival and pits four players against waves of enemies and drones – including things in mechanised suits. It features futuristic weapons, extra abilities granted by exo suits and oh my god I’ve just described Titanfall.

Yes, it looks and probably feels quite a bit like Respawn’s game, but it sure does look like a lot of fun. Here’s your first look at Exo survival, as part of a a new trailer called “ Power Changes Everything.”

Power changes everything in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, from the Private Military Corporation-driven storyline in the single-player Campaign to the innovative exoskeleton movements in Multiplayer. Take a look at what makes Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare the total gaming package, including the world premiere of the four-player co-op mode: Exo Survival.

Last year’s Call of Duty was as bland and lifeless as a military shooter could be, in my opinion – and that stupid dog did nothing to change it. I hope this one – the first wholly made by Sledgehammer games – manages to make Call of Duty fun again.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Call of Duty + Fun = Does not compute

    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      Sounded like you just tried to divide by zero

  • Admiral Chief 0

    Right, how much were they paid to say that?

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Oh look, another reason to forget about… um… that game they really hyped… the console-seller… has robots & stuff… what’s it called?

    • Admiral Chief 0

      The thing that hit the iceberg?

    You know what gets my goat? Trailers like these! The trailer ends. You see there is still 20 odd seconds left. You KNOW there will be some day one DLC or pre-order bullshit, you KNOW it. You watch nonetheless. SURPRISE!!! You were correct.

    *goes to play something else

    Best Titanfall trailer yet.

  • Hammersteyn

    Maybe they should have used the same technology WWE used for face scanning. When Spacey shouts “On my authority” you’d expect his eyes to show more animation.

  • Will be passing on this thanks…

    The pvp might be more fun than usual now that you can use jet packs to a degree. Verticality makes a big difference as is evident in Destiny and Planetside 2

    After Ghosts being such a crap game and let down, I’m not rushing out to buy this one. I’ll wait and see

  • I’m not a CoD fan, but i hope it will be good..

  • Alex Hicks

    Well, as a former CoD player – this does look like fun. But not ENOUGH fun to bring me back. As a former CoD PC player I still ask – does it have a server browser? No? Then bugger off; I’ve got loads of leveling still to do in Battlefield.

    • SarcasmOn

      Ah Battlefield. That game is so much better than CoD in its innovation. Oh wait BF4 was just an expansion of BF3.. A shitty one at that. Then there’s Hardline man they are so much more innovative and better………

      • Alex Hicks

        What does BF’s lack of innovation (and I happen to agree with you) have to do with CoD’s lack of a server browser?

  • Maxiviper117

    Im just gonna get this game for the kicks, havent bought a COD game since COD BL-OPS
