Activision has decided: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will not be arriving on the Wii U. Such was revealed yesterday on Twitter, where Sledgehammer Games' Michael Condrey confirmed the news, saying, "We are focused on Xbox One, PS4, and PC." This reverses the trend set by the franchise over the past couple years.
Some games graphics, especially cutscenes, have started to look so real that sometimes it feels as if you're actually watching a live action film. Sometimes it makes you wonder why these aren't turned into movies themselves. Fret not, true believer, as Activision is said to be wondering about that too, and might actually do something about it as well.
If you've been a gamer far longer than you'd be willing to admit, then this bit of news will surely have you reminiscing about the good old days. Activision has just reactivated Sierra Entertainment's website, revealing a return of the brand to the gaming scene, as well as the upcoming titles under its belt, one of which is a new King's Quest game.
The path of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to your Xbox One, PS4, or PC hasn't been short on interest over the past few months, but today Activision detailed one of the most anticipated features: multiplayer gaming. Featured on a special Xbox stream with Microsoft's Major Nelson, the game mode's highlights all got their official reveal, including how players will pick their teams and gear, and how the new exo-suits will feature.
Behind the scenes videos with the folks creating the Call of Duty series are always interesting to behold, even if you’re not a player of the games themselves. This is because Activision, and now SledgeHammer Games, are all about showing as much as they possibly can before a game release. In this case, this means seeing actors being captured in as much detail as possible - body and face included.
What did I just see? That’s what you’re likely thinking if you’ve already seen the first full trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. This trailer appears to be letting the world know that Call of Duty is about to get a major revamp, reacting to the ever-changing environment of First Person Shooters. It’s not like Call of Duty has any direct competition - but it’s night time for a change anyway.
The next generation of Call of Duty has arrived with "Advanced Warfare." This time it’s not about fighting for a country - it’s not even about being a spy. It’s about war for cash. And it’s starring Kevin Spacey. You’ll find this actor not only voicing a character in this game, but essentially appearing in the game as well - advanced realistic graphics and all.
One of the most popular game franchises that Activision has to its credit is Skylanders. The game franchise allows kids to bring real life action figures to life in the game by placing them on a portal. A new Skylanders game is now up for pre-order called Skylanders Trap Team and it has a new twist that is a first for the franchise.
There’s nothing like a good ol’ dose of "dee oh double-g" to bring a piece of media up to snuff with infamy. That’s exactly what the folks at Activision and Infinity Ward decided and laid down cash for in Call of Duty: Ghosts this week, preparing Snoop Dogg for an MP announcer role in a download pack available on April 22nd, 2014.
It’s not a few weeks now since the first DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts was released with Michael Myers in full effect, and Infinity Ward is ready with the second. Here we’re seeing - first of all - the inclusion of a machine gun called the "Ripper." This beast of an SMG can convert to an AR and back again as many smites as you like and is available before the DLC is released - for Xbox 360 and Xbox One Season Pass holders only. Other platforms will get the gun early as well, but not quite as early as this.
