UPDATE: CoD: Advanced Warfare leaks 2 days before reveal

cod_advanced_warfare_screenshot_4

Website Destructoid is claiming to have gotten hold of the first batch of screenshots and a trailer for this year’s Call of Duty. Developed by Sledgehammer Games, 2014’s iteration of the planet’s most popular shooter is subtitled Advanced Warfare – presumably because Modern Warfare is passé.

Advanced Warfare is set in the not-too-distant future, where hoverbikes, exoskeletons and helicopters that look like they come out of Avatar are all things. There’s also cloaking and gloves that help people climb the sides of buildings. And Kevin Spacey.

The game stars Kevin Spacey as the lead antagonist. He’s in control of a (presumably) large mercenary army that takes on the US government. He spouts all sorts of rhetoric about whether or not democracy is something that can be “forced” into every country. Spacey is not just doing the voice acting though; he’s actually in the game. Neat!

You can find a gallery of screenshots below. I also recommend heading over to Destructoid as soon as possible to watch their embedded trailer before Activision’s online sniper division takes it out. All the footage in that trailer was captured on Xbox One, and it looks very nice indeed. The game is out on 04 November 2014. You can expect to learn more once the game is officially revealed on Sunday, 04 May.

 

UPDATE: Activision has admitted defeat and released the game’s reveal trailer. Check it out below:

      yeah eventually they’re gonna have to do the alien invasion call of duty……which i meant as a sarcastic comment but actually might be pretty fun! :P ‘COD: iNVASION’ I’d buy that.

        Call of duty :ghost extinction mode but with a new gun

          Many of these little side projects actually turn out to be what people really love about COD and I wish more time was spent on them. I want to see more of the Blood Dragon and the COD Zombies universe.

          Honestly, if Infinity Ward broke away from tradition and created a zombie horror in COD style, their “cinematic” direction of the game would be perfect for that kind of backdrop. A game where you learn how the army would deal with a zombie outbreak – I’d play that.

            It would be like World War Z, which I’m totally down for.

            You think just like me.

    Mocap Kevin Spacey? I guess lots of people love House of Cards.

  • Tomahawk “Lightning” Jones

    Sooooo… the tech of BlOps II and Ghosts will be spit-polished and re-branded? Swell.

  • Alex Rowley

    It truly amazes me as to how this game gets the numbers it does. How om earth are people not sick of it yet? Also Advanced Warfare? I wouldn’t be surprised if Ubisoft come knocking, the name is so similar Ghost Recon’s advanced war fighter.

    • Stan Smith

      What is the age group this game is aimed at…?

      • Alex Rowley

        Well judging by the age restrictions on their games it’s 18 and older but realistically it’s most probably from from like 13 to 25. I”m just really surprised this whole thing hasn’t run it’s course yet, it happened to Skateboarding games and guitar Hero and I’m fully expecting it to happen to CoD but so far we’ve had like 6 years of this game and numbers are still strong. It really baffles me.

    They have managed to merge Halo with Crysis…. Very creative
