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.
Sledgehammer games are about to change the way Call of Duty functions in our modern flooded-with-FPS gaming universe. General Manager and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games Glen Schofield speaks this week in a demonstration trailer of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, making clear that though this game still has to be believable, it will be a new generation in the franchise.
This year's E3 began with the Xbox One showing of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in an impressive display of machine-heavy action and futuristic fighting. This Call of Duty demonstration suggested that we'd no longer be just a soldier on the ground with machine guns and grenades. Instead, it's time to get used to working with an Iron Man array of oddities.
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.
What if a company was your opposition in war? A new Call of Duty game asks that very same question. The latest Call of Duty takes a page from recent political headlines and puts it in the palm of your hands. A new video for the game, which you can see below, teases the idea heavily.
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.
One month after the Xbox One release of Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Devastation DLC arrival, this downloadable content pack will be arriving for the PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. Those users with a Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pack are allowed to use the Ripper 2-in-1 weapon immediately, while all maps and alien gameplay must wait.
If you enjoyed the gameplay included in the first DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts with Michael Myers, chances are you’re going to be pumped up about the secret character from the second installment. In this release comes none other than the Predator himself. Here we’re guessing that the alien action we’ve been seeing thus far in "Extinction" gameplay has all been part of a worldwide invasion by our favorite hunter.
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.
