Gamescom 2014 – Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare has a bridge to cross

1 min read


Hey, it wouldn’t be an an enormous gaming event without some Call Of Duty!

Glen Schofield and Michael Condry from Sledgehammer take the stage. Schofield explains how the game was designed to be fun, massive and memorable, while Condry talks more about the exo-skeleton which provides new movement in Call Of Duty, a fundamental change and the first in a decade.

And then, we get to check out a new map, called Collapse. The animation looks top notch, but the textures and surfaces seem a bit low-res. Still, it looks fun. The content that Xbox is showing off, was shown way back at E3 already in private screenings, where players had to engage with the enemy, using the new verticality features to survive a battle on the Golden Gate Bridge.

Also, everybody has exo-suits, and it looks kinda funny how all the enemies are hopping about. One thing that must be mentioned, is how authentic the audio of the game sounds. That’s a subtle feature, and one that most people ignore. While it’s the same tried and trusted Call Of Duty gameplay, that exo-skeleton addition is making the entire experience feel a lot more freeing, as the game shifts from human enemies to drones that have been watching way too many Matrix movies.

If you’re ready to throw all your money at Call Of Duty, Phil Spencer has good news for you. There will be a day one Advanced Warfare console bundle available, that includes a custom controller, console, 1tb hard drive and exclusive digital content.
