Sledgehammer has gone on record saying that their upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare could really shake up the multiplayer aspect of the Call of Duty franchise.
Co-founder Michael Condrey said the following to OXM about the game’s enhanced movement and control:
“We’ve got heavy weapons, which is sort of another new class, verticality through the boost jump – you can imagine what that does to the multiplayer experience, and then cloak, super-strength, and then off-the-controller changes, like the exo-boost and the exo-slide.
He then discusses a new combo the game will feature:
“We’ve got a really great combo now with the boost jump and then a lethal slam from above. We feel like it’s a pretty fundamental change to the second-to-second combat, as well as the broader linear experience that you see in campaign.”
He ends with how he thinks the exo is revolutionary:
“The shotgun is a close quarters weapon. A short ranged, broad angle weapon like the shotgun is pretty ineffective against a player who can boost out of the way really quickly, right? So there are a lot of really interesting and unique challenges and opportunities, and I think when we talk about MP in more detail you’ll get to see that, but the variety that the new controls and the exo bring to gameplay is pretty revolutionary.”
Sledgehammer’s upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is sure to feature many interesting ideas thanks to its futuristic setting, but this latest reveal definitely sounds the most intriguing.
According to Game Informer, there is a new weapon called the 3D Printer Gun, which is able to create bullets while you are using it. There is also a container that is labelled “liquid matter”, which seems like what will be used to create the bullets.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is being developed by Sledgehammer Games for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC and is eyeing a November 4th, 2014 release date.
This does sound likely a really cool concept. With this gun, you could have a weapon that can fire and create bullets. It probably won’t be unlimited because of the liquid matter container, but it seems like it will take a lot longer to run out of ammo. It will be interesting to see what kind of quirks this will add to the actual gameplay.
Although not very surprising, it has been revealed that DLC for the upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will hit Xbox 360 and Xbox One before any other platform.
Microsoft made the announcement today, where they also revealed some information about the game. An Amazon listing was then posted which gave us even more information, specifically about the character Kevin Spacey is playing. The character’s name is Jonathan Irons, who is the leader of the world’s largest private military contractor, Atlas.
