The king of shooters is back, and Advanced Warfare is going to be one of the biggest games of the year.
The first Call of Duty arrived on PC all the way back in 2003 but it was 2007’s Modern Warfare which really kicked the series into high gear. Since then, it’s become one of the highest grossing franchise of all time.
Destiny may have earned a massive $500 million on its first day of sale but the Call of Duty series has been doing that for years, with midnight openings around the world and fanatical fan attention heralding its release every year.
The latest game is called Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and once again sees the player going to head with all kinds of evil-doers in the not so distant future. This time, the setting is 2054 (only 40 years away folks!) and a global terrorist threat forces the creation of Private Military Corporations, with the largest run by none other than Kevin Spacey!
Future tech is the thing which sets this game apart, particularly the exo-suit you’ll wear throughout the story and multiplayer modes. It gives you unrivaled strength and speed, adding in quick dodges, double jumps and more to give the game a brand new feel for 2014.
You’ll also be able to customize your play like never before, taking on brief extra powers like being able to cloak, hover or create a shield. Together with the speedier movement and incredible new visual detail, Advanced Warfare should be a real shake up for the series.
All of these elements will also be included in the comprehensive multiplayer element of the game – something which has become a massive selling-point for Call of Duty. You’ll play with the weapons of the future in a range of maps with competitive and co-operative elements and also take part in an all new mode called Exo-Survival that sees you working together to hold off waves of enemies.
All told, Advanced Warfare sounds like a generous new package from this truly blockbuster game series, and shooter fans will definitely want to be in on the action come November 4th.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC from the 4th of November 2014.
In Short: The ultimate shooter series is back for 2014! Call of Duty Advanced Warfare goes further into the future and stars Kevin Spacey!
