Power Changes Everything.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, developed by Sledgehammer Games, harnesses the first three-year, all next-gen development cycle in franchise history, and again brings certain to-be announced add-on content first to Xbox.
Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare envisions a powerful future, where both technology and tactic have evolved to a ripped-from-the-headlines-of-tomorrow story. Academy Award® winning actor Kevin Spacey stars as Jonathan Irons – one of the most powerful men in the world – shaping this chilling vision of the future of war.
An Advanced World:
· “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” takes place in a plausible future in which technological progress and today’s military practices have converged with powerful consequences.
· In this carefully researched and crafted vision, Private Military Corporations (PMCs) have become the dominant armed forces for countless nations outsourcing their military needs, redrawing borders and rewriting the rules of war.
· And Jonathan Irons, the founder and president of the world’s largest PMC – Atlas Corporation – is at the center of it all.
An Advanced Soldier:
· Powerful exoskeletons evolve every aspect of a soldier’s battle readiness, enabling combatants to deploy with an advanced lethality.
· The introduction of this gameplay mechanic delivers enhanced player movement and verticality through boost jumps and grappling, covert cloaking abilities, and biomechanics that provide unparalleled maneuverability, strength, awareness, endurance, and speed.
· With the advent of the exoskeleton and newly advanced armor and weaponry, every soldier engages in new levels of tactical combat unlike ever before, fundamentally changing the way gamers play “Call of Duty” across all modes.
· Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare takes multiplayer gameplay to new heights. The core movement system is fundamentally changed with exoskeleton technology, and new reward systems deliver Call of Duty’s most personalized and customizable multiplayer experience to date.
· With all-new movements, abilities, weaponry and equipment of the future, both fan-favorite and new game modes require strategic adaptation, creating the most dynamic, action-packed multiplayer experience in Call of Duty history.
An Advanced Arsenal:
· Harnessing the power of next-gen platforms, “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” introduces a new hi-tech, advanced arsenal and ability set, arming players with all-new equipment, technology, perks, and vehicles like hover tanks and highly specialized drones.
· Players can also choose between standard ammunition and an all-new class of directed-energy weaponry that enables new gameplay dynamics.
· And with exoskeletons delivering a massive force multiplier and unprecedented tactical freedom, “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” evolves the combat to new levels.
