A new, lengthy video for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s multiplayer shines a spotlight on its game-defining exo movement, customization options, maps, and gameplay modes.
As noted in the video itself, while fundamentally the same COD experience players have come to know each year, Advanced Warfare introduces more robust movement options in line with the current trend in first-person shooters (see: TItanfall, Evolve). Boost jumps, double jumps, boost slides, and boost dashes and dodges all vary up combat encounters. Complementing these are exo abilities, such as a hover mode, cloak, and tactical shield.
Loadouts, meanwhile, are inspired by Black Ops 2’s Pick 10, bumped up to a Pick 13 system, expanding to scorestreak options as well for the first time in the series.
The rest of the seven-minute video (seen above) contains a tour of several maps and gameplay modes, such as the new Uplink mode, in which opposing teams scramble to claim a satellite drone and get it back to their uplink spot (think basketball, but with more bullets).
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches across Windows PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 November 4. For more on Sledgehammer’s evolution of COD’s multiplayer, check out Josh’s recent hands-on preview.
