Advanced Warfare Tech And Story Details

They said the game would be fully unveiled on Sunday, but they're doing a pretty good job of it already.

After the official trailer, Activision sent out the press release that described the latest CoD entry in some detail.

It re-confirmed the November 4 launch date, although it's interesting to note that while Sledgehammer Games is handling the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions, a separate - currently unnamed - team is working on the PS3 and 360 versions.

This is similar to Titanfall, as Respawn Entertainment did the next-gen version while Bluepoint Games produced the Xbox 360 iteration. As for Advanced Warfare, it's the first game in the franchise that will deliver super abilities via exoskeleton suit. ...did I just hear someone say Crysis? Anyway, the press release also promises a great story and announces Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey as Jonathan Irons, the leader of a fictional private military corporation.

In a statement, Spacey said it's "unlike anything I've ever done before" and as for that potentially fantastic narrative, here's the summary:

"Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare jolts players forward in a groundbreaking experience that's ripped-from-the-headlines-of-tomorrow, envisioning a future where both technology and tactics have evolved to usher in a new era of combat for the franchise. Set in the year 2054, a private military corporation (PMC) has emerged with the power to rescue humanity from a devastated world struggling to rebuild after a global attack on its military and infrastructure. You are the advanced soldier. Empowered with new, cutting-edge exoskeleton abilities, technological advancements, and high-tech gear, players join the ranks of a highly-trained, specialized unit committed to restoring order in a state of advanced warfare."

Also, don't forget that Advanced Warfare is the first title in the franchise's long history to use a three-year development cycle, and this has helped Sledgehammer create "a near photorealistic world." This will include "new performance capture and facial animation technologies that deliver lifelike characters," which certainly sounds encouraging.

Well, how's about some gameplay? Maybe that's what we'll get this weekend.

It doesn't matter how advanced technology is when you're still using the same engine.

Unconfirmed but plausible, even with the 3 year dev cycle this time around.

Chances are it still is. CoD:G still has the same engine and both titles started development at the same time. I highly doubt they bothered coming up with a new one.

Atlas Corporation... Having just finished re-reading Atlas Shrugged, I laughed a little about the whole "rebuilding the world" thing. I really, really like the premise of this story but premise is one thing and content is quite another.

And I'm intrigued by some of the mechanics that they're introducing. The new traversal options allowed by the exoskeleton and wall-climbing seem cool, but I'm afraid that they'll only be used in very specific situations within the campaign. I just think that if Sledgehammer wants to implement that kind of thing, they really need to open the game up to greater agency for the player through less linear environments. They should be brilliant additions to the MP for those that are interested, however.

Also, I was surprised by how good the trailer looked. Like, CoD's not known for pushing the technical boundaries, and AW certainly doesn't match up to KZ:SF, but it's a surprisingly pretty-looking game.

I'm pleased with what I'm seeing. I like the vibe I'm feeling from the futuristic tech and stuff. The graphics look quite nice too.

This...this might be the first CoD that I'm the slightest bit interested in since Modern Warfare 2.

I like what I'm seeing so far.
