Advanced Warfare’s campaign just 5 hours long?

2 min read


It’s become a bit of a joke how short Call of Duty’s single player campaigns have become. Sledgehmammer Games’ Glen Schofield said that this year’s one would be “coming in longer than the last few” . Apparently, it’s longer by mere minutes. According to somebody who’s finished the game, it clocks in at just 5 hours.

in Advanced Warfare, you’ll take on the role of Jack Mitchell, a mercenary employed by the private military corporation Atlus. You’ll engage with Kevin Spacey, who heads up the company. And you’ll be doing so for just five hours. that’s according to a user on the COD Forums who spotted the credits scene posted on Twitter by a random human on the internet. Take it with a pinch of salt, but it smacks of validity – as it’s been accompanied by a screenshot of the game’s credits. Of course, said winner could have finished the game on its easiest setting, meaning players who want more of a challenge should expect a few more hours of popcorn entertainment. And frankly, I’m okay with that. I’ve always loved the COD campaigns for their mindless action , which provide me with a weekend of dumb shooting bliss.

Of course, Call of Duty’s emphasis on single player has died down, and is now primarily a multiplayer game. On that note, here’s a list of the multiplayer maps you’ll be killing other people on.

  • Ascend
  • Bio Lab
  • Comeback
  • Defender
  • Detroit
  • Greenband
  • Horizon
  • Instinct
  • Recovery
  • Retreat
  • Riot
  • Solar
  • Terrace

In the same thread, it was revealed that Hardcore playlists will include the following modes:  Hardcore TDM, Hardcore Kill Confirmed, Hardcore Domination & Hardcore Search and Destroy, along with news of some of the game’s scorestreaks. Provided it’s a compelling and fun, balanced multiplayer experience, this is where Call of Duty Advanced Warfare’s longevity and value will lie.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is out on November 4.

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.
