Microsoft opened up it’s E3 2014 conference with our first look at Activision and Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The trailer showed three soldiers (the player controlled character named Mitchell) dropping in to South Korea in an ODST-style drop, pod. In what, as far as we know, is in-game gameplay, the graphics looked pretty impressive for a Call of Duty game. While not the most beautiful game in existence, it is a huge improvement from what we typically see in a Call of Duty.
As the soldiers step out in to War-torn Seoul, we see an impressively open world city area filled with mechs, tanks, future-helicopters, and soldiers with jetpack boots.
As you and Badger Squad begin to traverse the linear are, the scope of war is certainly bigger then we’ve seen in any other Call of Duty game, thanks to the full use of next-gen capabilities.
The gameplay sequence ended with your character watching his squad leader die, then being slowly pulled away from the battle scene only to watch his decapitated arm stay behind.
As an avid activist on the anti Call of Duty scene, Advanced Warfare certainly stood to impress me.
As always, DLC comes first to Xbox One.
We’ll have a link tot he full trailer when it becomes available.
