Call of Duty Advanced Warfare multiplayer 'a big step forward' for the series

"You're going to find that new is what it's all about," says Sledgehammer

Sledgehammer Games has said its debut Call of Duty title will shake up the series' tried and trusted multiplayer offering.

Set in the 2054, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's campaign features mech suits, hover bikes and directed energy weapons, among other futuristic gear and vehicles, some of which will also be included in the game's multiplayer component.


Sledgehammer co-founder Glen Schofield told Metro: "We'll have our own style. The exoskeletons are definitely in there and that's the core of the game."

Fellow studio co-founder Michael Condrey said: "Our multiplayer has what I'm going to call the biggest set of new, as you call it, cool gear that you've seen in a long time.

"It's a big step forward, from three years in development we've been able to innovate across the game. Everything you saw today... just imagine what that's going to mean for multiplayer. You're going to find that new is what it's all about."

Condrey also told Forbes: "On the highest level, the Advanced soldier which our E3 demo showcased is the Advanced soldier you'll see in multiplayer."

The Call of Duty Advanced Warfare release date is November 4 on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC.
