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.

  1. That custom console & controller actually looks better than the default non-colour scheme.

      Agreed, was just about to say that

    Ghosts pretty much burned that bridge for me. Terrible game on so many levels.

    Advanced Warfare might have rebuilt it, but yesterday was laughable. Apparently innovation is taking Black Ops 2, Titanfall, a bit of Halo, and the Supply Drops from Mass Effect 3 (which surely is just a gateway to more microtransactions).

    You don’t put all that stuff together and claim I’ve never seen it before. Blended Warfare is more like it.

    1TB console? Impressive. Are we getting this in SA?

      Nope, why would they push this bundle in front of the already ordered stock of standards?

    I wonder how long it will be for Sony to announce their 1TB console

    I don’t want to be THAT guy but all these COD articles feel like sponsored content and not personal opinion. I know the coverage of Gamescom is sponsored by COD but the articles and the number of them seem a bit much. Did I miss something or am I just being an idiot? Considering your track record in regards to sponsored content I think it’s the latter.

      Really? This was just announced minutes ago as a big deal at the Microsoft Gamescom conference.. the other articles are all piling out at the same time.

      The only other COD articles were from the MP worldwide exclusive yesterday.

      No tinfoil hat required here…

        As I said, it’s me being an idiot. No offence intended.

          I’d hug you, but I’m covered in free Xbox One consoles that make lifting my arms impossible.
