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.
