In May, we saw the reveal trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The trailer revealed that the game will have a futuristic theme to it and will be set in the future. Later Sledgehammer revealed that the game will take place in the year 2054 which is further into the future then Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Fans saw tons of new features in the reveal trailer like the Exo-Suit, Hover Bike, Futuristic Weaponry and more.
Glen A. Schofield is the General Manager and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games and the Studio Head of Development and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games Michael Condrey aim to refine the Call of Duty series with their upcoming Call of Duty game. With what we’ve seen so far, they are taking Call of Duty to a whole new level and making something complete different from previous Call of Duty titles. What they’ve shown us looks more like science fiction then reality but according to the studio, everything we’ve seen it completely real. In the video below Schofield says, “The future tech in the game, is actually based on techonology that we see today and we’ve taken it further.”
In the video above, Schofield and Condrey talk about the new futuristic equipment they are introducing. They talk about the Threat Detection Grenade, Mobile Barricade, Directed Energy Weapons, Hover Bikes, and Hover Tanks.
They also talked about the Exo-Skeleton Suit and how big of an impact it will have on the game. We recently found out that the Exo-Skeleton Suit will be apart of the multiplayer and Schofield says, “The Exo-Skeleton is a complete game changer”. With all the abilities the Exo-Skeleton has, it’s not surprising that it will greatly influence the game and how it’s played.
We can expect to see more of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare at GamesCom in August so I guess we’ll have to wait for more info until then.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare hits stores on 4th of November for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
