Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare reviews

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare isn’t technically available to owners of the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC to purchase until tomorrow.

Advanced Warfare is the first Call of Duty game to benefit from Activision’s three-year development cycle. The game is developed by Sledgehammer Games, the studio that co-developed Modern Warfare 3.

Sledgehammer Games is made up of ex-Visceral employees, the team that worked on the first Dead Space game. Advanced Warfare will be running on a new engine and will feature motion-capture tech that’s being used in the production of Avatar 2.

The singleplayer campaign follows Mitchell (Troy Baker), an ex-US Marine who joins Atlas, a private military corporation lead by Will Irons (Kevin Spacey). Mitchell will use the high-tech exoskeleton suit throughout the game, which is one of the main gameplay features.

Multiplayer borrows the same Exo Suit abilities found in singleplayer. Things like boost-jump, boost-dodge, and double-jump are all in there. Popular modes like Team Deathmatch, Search & Destroy, Capture the Flag, and Kill Confirmed are making a return. New modes like Momentum and Uplink will be debuting with Advanced Warfare.
