Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Reveals Exo Survival Mode


Activision just released a new trailer for their upcoming FPS staple Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, in which they reveal their new co-op Exo Survival mode. Before I get into that, I’d like to point out that the cutscene visuals on display right off the top. When I saw Kevin Spacey acting as the leader of a Private Military Company (PMC), it appeared as though it was a live-action opening to the game. In fact, it was an in-game cutscene. Even if the output comes from a high-end PC, it’s refreshing to see the Call of Duty franchise look so stunningly good in any form.

With that said, let’s look at the co-op Exo Survival mode coming to Advanced Warfare. Similar to Horde and other “fight non-stop incoming waves” modes that the franchise has become familiar with, the newest FPS title has that certain futuristic touch that Sledgehammer Games have brought with this title. Not only do you and  other teammates fend off mechanized soldiers, but so too do you face drone copters, heavily-armored fighters, speed-boosting combatants and cloaked foes. It’s not just more and more foes you face as the difficulty ramps up, but smarter and agile foes, as well.

As I recall my time spent getting in some multiplayer matches of Advanced Warfare in late August, the changes coming to Call of Duty play actually look to be significant. Not only are the single player campaigns and the multiplayer matches look to add unique elements to the fire fights, but even the throw-in bonus modes seem to reflect added care and thought put into them. Even though it’s a feeling that may seem to last only one year (until one of Activision’s two other CoD developers get their annualized shot at the franchise), it will be interesting to see if traces of Advanced Warfare‘s politicized sense of the future will make an impact in their future titles.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will hit stores November 4th on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3. Pre-ordering the game now may get you access to the Day Zero version, which releases a day earlier.
