Even though Destructoid beat them to the punch in terms of the name, trailer and release date reveal for the upcoming Call of Duty game, Game Informer did do an excellent job of profiling some of the game’s details for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in their recent release of Game Informer magazine.
While you should really pick up Game Informer either at that link above or in physical form, we will tease some of the more tantalizing details revealed in the magazine. For starters, Sledgehammer Games are solely developing for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, with an unnamed developer working on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. Focusing on all x86-based architectures means it will be easier to develop a better performing/looking game.
Additionally, it is set in 2054 as a terrorist group called KVA sets off an event not unlike, ” global 9/11.” (Their words, not mine.) Playing as Private Mitchell (Troy Baker), you join your squadmate Will Irons in signing up for PMC “Atlas Corporation,” run by Will’s father, Jonathan Irons (Kevin Spacey).
What’s really cool is that there will be RPG-esque elements brought to the single player campaign. When you join Atlas Corporation, you’ll be fitted with an EXO suit that can be upgraded by earning points after each mission. Normally reserved for multiplayer and its ranking system, it will be interesting to see how the campaign shifts within the realms of the main story. Combined with the notion that the game will have some sort of co-op mode, and the possibilities extend beyond normal CoD expectations.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will hit stores on November 4th, releasing on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360. There’s no word on a Wii U version as of yet.
