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.

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.
