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.
Today Call of Duty: Ghosts will be updated with a collection of "customization packs" that allow the user to see their gear covered with oddities. Supposing you enjoyed the holiday-themed layout for your deadly firearm in Call of Duty: Ghosts at the end of last year, the folks responsible for keeping the game fresh have just what the doctor ordered. Several new packs released this week include Ducky, Inferno, Circuit, and no less than Space Cats.
The development team at Edge of Reality have been revealed as the new commanders of the next Transformers video game with Activision keeping command over publishing rights. With Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, we’ve got a battle over Earth - with battles on our own, home planet, this time around, while it’s quite possible much of the rest of the game will center around rather similar gameplay to past Transformers releases. Here we’ve got a Story Campaign mode as well as co-op Escalation modes appearing in this game’s first data push.
This week we're taking a look at the bigger picture when it comes to reviews of the game Call of Duty: Ghosts. When we first published our (still in progress) review of Call of Duty: Ghosts earlier this year, it was shocking to see how big of a backlash was issued at the hands of gamers that'd purchased the title and disagreed with our (mostly positive) assessment on a level so great that we were accused of publishing a paid review (which, for the record, we never, ever do.) Here we're taking a peek at some of the biggest complaints users have with the game.
For the PC version of Call of Duty: Ghosts, it would appear that Infinity Ward has had enough of the hacking nonsense that's been running rampant for weeks. To make certain the PC crowd understands what they'll be dealing with from this point forward, Infinity Ward has issued an announcement regarding 3rd party software. Any user found playing Call of Duty: Ghosts online with 3rd party software attached - cheating, that is - will be banned permanently.
