GameInformer’s month long coverage of Advanced Warfare starts today. They posted a teaser of a trailer with interviews from Michael Condrey, Glen Schofield, and Eric Hirshberg. In there, an interesting quote was said.

They’re bringing some big experiments to the core mechanics that will affect multiplayer and all modes of the game.

We’ll post more information as get more from the 12 page feature that is set to go live for GameInformer’s Digital Subscribers later today.

    where can i see the live reveal stream?

  • SoulTaker

    Interesting.

  • GOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  • Jack Lame

    FUCKADOODLEDOO!

  • GRANT

    So the mech suits will have some form of impact in multiplayer? Should be good aslong as it is just higher jumping and running faster etc

  • Matt

    I’m glad they are experimenting, even if they don’t work at least we will see what does and doesn’t work in CoD. And then Sledghammer can’t be criticised for just reskinning older CoD’s. If any changes don’t work then Treyarch can revert them in 2015. But hopefully they work and evolve CoD in the right direction because it has become stale.

    • VAQnotVAG

      lol Infinity Ward also experimented with Ghosts, right?

      If they don’t change it enough: people complain.
      If they change it too much: people complain.

      • SoulTaker

        Couldn’t have said it better myself.

      • Prince Of The City.

        I guess there is some balanced place somewhere in the middle that we have yet to find! Lets cross our fingers and hope they stumble on that perfect balance this time around.

        • Dalton Karle

          This is a completely different game to CoD but it is the easiest way I can explain it. They need a perfect imbalance in their weapons like LoL has with their champions. Sure some guns may be op and eventually will need to be nerfed when new guns are buffed or brought into play and reshift the balance. So for one patch it could be assault rifles strong then another more SMGs but still support for AR then eventually move completely away.

          • Jack Meoff

            they said the same thing about ghost

      • jooker-jr

        Well. Complaining is easy and free

      • Josh

        The difference is IW added rediculas things like the preditor and aliens to multiplayer. What was going through their minds? SHG are experimenting with new game mechanics to improve the feel and style rather than just throwing random things into the game like IW.

        • jordanxbrookes

          IW added some new mechanics like sliding, fluent mantling and leaning.

          • Josh

            But they were only minor changes – they didn’t really change the style or way you play the game. Just think of it like in BO1 adding the dolphin dive, it doesn’t really change anything just a new feature. Who actually uses the lean feature in ghosts, hardly anyone, it’s just there.

          • fires

            “minor”? sliding, mantling and leaning are 3 core mechanics added in. Id hardly call it minor, as leaning, sliding, and mantling are important in a more run n gun style shooter like cod. shorter lobby times and longer wait times in game are “minor”, core game mechanics are pretty big.

          • Josh

            Ok, I agree but the style of game doesn’t really change. Look at Titenfall with the ability to climb up walls and use vehicle in battlefield they both change the style of gameplay and not so much the additional features in Ghosts.

          • Choppabro2psn

            Id have to admit, sliding and mantling did change the mechanics a bit, but exclude leaning. The only time I lean is for the camo challenge in order to achieve gold camo. Im positive I speak for alot if not majority of the community in this statement.

      • ElseAndrew

        I’d hardly call it an experiment. They made big maps and lowered the TTK, that was never going to be fun.

      • CoDforever

        What do you mean they experimented with ghosts? Big ass maps? WHO THE FUCK WANTED BIG MAPS IN COD SO YOU SPEND MINUTES LOOKING FOR ONE GUY? Wasnt that BF3’s console biggest complaint? If they were gonna bring bigger maps than they should have increased it from 6v6 to 9v9 standard for all gametypes. Other than big ass uneccessary maps, what else have they experimented with?

        NOTHING.

        They wasted so much potential for a new sub brand, new consoles and everything and they blew it.

        Dynamic maps? The default maps in ghosts have to worst dynamic events except for 3 maps: Strikezone, Octane and whiteout (kinda) every other dynamic event on the other maps are lame AS FUCK.

        Character Customization? I’ll give em props for creating female soldiers because theres a lot of female cod players now, but the main reason for character customization was to make money off micro transactions for character skins. Not too mention, most of the uniforms in ghosts are greyish (as the whole game) so they blend in with everything; especially if you play on ps3, xbox 360.

        What else did they bring to the table?

        With Ghosts, they managed to appeal the game to NO ONE.

        Ghosts was a deathblow to competitive cod, Public match players (casual players) hate it and even quickscopers and trickshotters hate the fucking game.

        And the game has so many downsides to it: dying to fast, really bad spawns, some of the fan favorite game modes from previous cods are missing (demolition, capture the flag, hardpoint, headquarters etc)

        • dankdildo

          I hate this type of comment… The amount of players I come across is equal to that of any other call of duty. I think the real issue culminates with you inability to follow the logical spawn patterns. 9v9 maps are found under the ground war gametype…Your opinion on the dynamic maps is just simply irrelevant, and as for “bringing things to the table” ghosts brought as much if not more than the past 2 titles have.

          People just like to bitch about ghosts

          • Kmillz0

            If the amount of players is equal. Why does bo2 have more players at all times ?? lol especially on ps3

        • Be honest. EVERYBODY wanted bigger maps. We get bigger maps. SMALLER MAPS! What should they do?

          • Penguin-Kun

            Might as well make every map medium sized. That way, everyone will STFU about the map being too small or too big. Still, a little bit of small maps would be okay for faster gameplay.

          • Choppabro2psn

            I thought cod was an arcade shooter…. arcade shooters should be synonymous with smaller maps right…? What im asking for is who wanted generally bigger maps? Maybe a few for sniping, but not as a whole.

    • iLynx

      You realize that Treyarchs next COD will be very far into development by the time they realize what does and doesn’t work from the Sledgehammer game right?

  • Fish

    There u go for the people who bitch that cod is the same

  • What the hack? Why is Gameinformer’s community so good?

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      What?

      • They are so nice and non-hostile.

        • Jack Lame

          Non-hostile? What idiots, jeez.

          • I’m starting to get really scared of you, dude.

    • Jack Lame

      MAGIC!

      • Dave 4.0

        I Think I know you from somewhere….

  • greg

    if they add double jump or jet packs cod will die. just like halo became very unpopular when they added jetpacks and sprint. never change core mechanics

    • Lord Travi$

      Have you played Titanfall that’s cod with double jumping lool and its fun as hell

    • VAQnotVAG

      Yep, that killed Halo for me too. I called it “Halo Reach Around”

    • Ben

      I would definitely buy the game if they will add some similar things… the old CoD mechanics are just boring for me.

  • DontListenToMe

    12 Pages?
    Bet you they printed it in a big font…
    Lazy buggers.

  • Instakill115

    It doesn`t matter. The haters will bitch that it jumped the shark and ruins the game. If they don`t, it will be the “Same Game” . They live to bitch.

  • SoulTaker

    The thing is though when they do experiments on these new things people will complain that “this isn’t COD anymore”.

    • Lord Travi$

      If it works and makes the game more fun they wouldn’t complain tbh

      • SoulTaker

        You’d be surprised. Any little thing pisses off “gamers” now a days this goes for any game but COD seems to be the biggest.

        • Lord Travi$

          True the community is utter shit, its so hard for them to adapt to change, But i cant really see anything going wrong if they can double jump, wall run/climb it just the game more fun to play just look at titanfall

          • SoulTaker

            I wouldn’t mind if they took some ideas from Titanfall seeing as the game also isn’t on the PS4 this would make more people happy. But I agree with the community being shit. They whine at any little thing that doesn’t make them happy.

          • Lord Travi$

            Titanfall is basically what cod would have ended up as, if they didn’t fire Jason west and Vince zampella, well thats how i see it, not sure if you’ve played it or not but it feels like you’re playing cod

          • SoulTaker

            I’ve heard that it feels like COD. And well the makers of that game were makers of COD so it’s easy to see why. Never played it I don’t have a or Xbox One yet and my computer can’t run that. 😛

          • Lord Travi$

            Yeah hopefully #2 goes multi plat so everyone can play it and its like MW2 as in they add so many new crazy things

          • SoulTaker

            The only bad thing I’ve heard about the game is that it doesn’t have a variety of guns. 🙁

          • Lord Travi$

            That’s true the games really lacklustre when it comes to content, guess they focused on gameplay more than anything else.

          • SoulTaker

            That’s what I heard every video I see the person is either using the same AR or the same pistol.

          • Yea Im the jordanxbrookes fake

            It’s not “lackluster” motherfucker it’s balanced. They spent 4 years on this they didn’t fucking slack when it comes to variety! Think bf there are like a million weapons but only 15 get used. Why would you want 40 guns and everyone uses the same 10 anyway than have 10 guns that are totally balanced? Retard.

          • Lord Travi$

            So having 10 weapons and no customization to the weapons apart from 2-3 attachments that get unlocked after a few matches is good now? LOL everyone uses the same AR in the game, the game has like 6 game modes and no private matches and dont tell me its coming in an update it should have been there from day 1! the games a MP only and it lacks the key components of a MP game, not worth the price most people i know sold it they got bored no camos to unlock or anything that keeps you playing the game, look at youtube no one uploads the game its dead, not saying its a bad game i still enoy it, but it got over hyped.

          • codmakesmecry

            titanfall2 is going to be on the ps4

        • jooker-jr

          But they don’t say any bad things about bf

    • Dave

      yeah people bitch about “Cod being the same recycled thing” And now when they decide to switch things around they are all like “This is Shit” “this isn’t COD”

      • SoulTaker

        Sadly the truth man.

      • CoDforever

        True, all the people saying that cod has to change and innovate are the same fagits saying cod should go back to COD4, where it was “simple”

        • Notfagit

          *faggots

    • Choppabro2psn

      All bull aside, Ghosts was bad…. everything else that was experimented with was alright. Especially when they took the biggest chance with blops 2, and its new fangled-ness, which turned out to be just fine.

  • Jack Lame

    Look at the first picture, right at the back, there is someone with a LSAT.

  • Batman

    No more knifing, now is all about super punches

    • kyr95

      More like super kicks 😀

      • jooker-jr

        No. Super slaps

        • kyr95

          :O

        • KillzoneVII

          Backhand bitch slap like the guy did in the trailer, please.

    • Mitch

      How about grabbing them around the neck, squeezing their head off >:-)

      • kyr95

        Thats some Jason Voorhes shit right there

  • This game is gonna come out big

    • Jack Lame

      Like your dog poop.

    • jooker-jr

      Just like every single cod

      • Jack Lame

        COD: ghosts?

        • jooker-jr

          Don’t deny it , you were excited for ghosts

          • Batman

            You mean “excited”?

          • jooker-jr

            Yup. Sorry

    • kplem

      lets hope

  • Dave

    I’m going to try stay as neutral as possible and not jump on board the hype train. Main reason being is because I don’t want it end up being a huge disappointment. Lets see what SH can do to revive the franchise!

  • VVFZ

    OH MY JUST LET US SEE THE MULTIPLAYER TRAILER NOW

  • Danny

    Please have character customization but make it better than ghost

    • Why? You dont even see youre own character

      • Lord Travi$

        LMAO exactly!

        • I mean ok,maybe you wanna look ‘cool’ towards your enemies,but seriously its just a waste,you can add something else to the game,like theather,it should be back

          • Lord Travi$

            Hardly noticed character customization in ghosts like you can’t even see it all that good, and they cant add Hats like team fortress 2 it’ll look stupid, dunno think it’s the colours schemes they use for the game that makes the customization so bland, Yeah theatre is a welcome again, but for some reason i think it effects hit detection lool but who knows.

          • Hit detection in ghosts isnt perfect either

          • Jack Lame

            Its really good.

          • Lord Travi$

            That’s one thing i’ll give Ghosts the hit detection was on par with MW2 which we all know had the best hit detection, both didn’t have theatre

    • Ryumoau

      i’m hoping we can pick from various exosuit designs. I also want female soldiers back.

  • Rorke File

    not change everything

    • Jack Lame

      yes change everything

  • VAQnotVAG

    They’ll probably pull a “Halo Reach” on us and give players jet packs and add other “enhancements/features” (IE: junk). Don’t ruin it, SHG.

  • Sgtsclark

    I’m diggin the attitude and vibe I’m getting from these guys so far. We shall see! Looking forward to it.

  • Jack Lame

    The kids on twitter crying that they will kill trickshotting.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Who cares? Fuck them trickshotters.

    • Dude i hate to watch trickshotters in snd

    • NamesAtK

      What? Wouldnt double jumping and shit make their trickshota better? I dont understand…

    • Ben

      YAY LITTLE POOR TRICKSHOT OMG OMG :'(

  • jordanxbrookes

    Condrey and Schofield are indeed very talented along with the rest of Sledgehammer Games. They’ve already convinced me with single-player, now it’s time to hear about multiplayer. #AdvancedWarfare

  • k5berry

    When people say things like “this game is just a re-skin”, many times they don’t take into consideration how the game plays. Even though i didn’t play MW2 that much, it’s kinda obvious that MW3 is very recycled from MW2. But they play so different. In MW2, you can’t run rambo with an SMG get a bunch of kills and deaths as you can in MW3. So i know for the most part how the game is made and how it plays go hand in hand, but if devs can find a way to not innovate that much (you still want a little innovation), but make the game play different (and make it fun), then that’s fine by me

  • ….

    If Battlefield when all futuristic like this then people would be praising the game and worshiping it like it was the second coming of Jesus or something

    • Lord Travi$

      lool BF is so boring run around for 20 min trying to find someone

  • jordanxbrookes

    COD Hater’s Logic: If they don’t change it up, it’s the same game
    If they do change it up, it’s not Call of Duty
    If they get inspired by other games, it’s copying.
    People, I think we can conclude it’s not Call of Duty that’s the issue, it’s the haters.

    • Lord Travi$

      I feel sorry for SHGames tbh they’re getting so much hate just because how bad ghosts was, hope they prove everyone wrong with AW.

      • jordanxbrookes

        SHGames are getting hate because idiot haters say that they’re copying Crysis, Titanfall and Halo, even though they’re aren’t.

        • Lord Travi$

          TitanFall is COD LOL
          Crysis is boring as hell just pretty graphics the gameplay is utter shit
          and halo is halo AW is nothing like halo?

          • Kosta

            i know right? you know what funny? crysis copied cod, look at crysis 2 ,3 multiplayer its cod it has faced paced action killstreaks, perks, class set up exactly like cod. so many relevant FPs game copied cod because they saw the success of COD 4. even BF4,3 were so disparate hey brought TDM and DOM to their game to get cod players, they even brought in BF4 2 assists counts a kill MW3 hardline???

        • Choppabro2psn

          But you know, imitation is the most superior form of flattery.

    • Choppabro2psn

      All these hater, I can bet my soul that they used to be cod fanatics. Am I right? Maybe cod jus doesnt appeal to the same audience as it either used to or meant to.

  • kyr95

    According to user “Ryumoau”, he read in the gameinformer issue that the protagonist’s name is Private Mitchell and is voiced by the man himself Troy Baker!!! 😀

    • Mitch

      Mitchell?

      • kyr95

        OMG coincidence?

        • Mitch

          Do you know if Mitchell has a beanie?

          • kyr95

            Im dying now xD

  • Drillz

    Treyarch with zombies on the next gen, just imagine how much they can expand that shit. I hope they implement a full blown ranking system for zombies, as you progress through the ranks you unlock new perks and weaponry and shit like that. That should be part of a story aspect and then they should have the classic zombies mode where you just fight off waves until you’re killed. Sledgehammer is gonna do great by this game I believe. I just really hope the gun damage isn’t similar to Ghosts. It’s pretty shit when you have no time to react to being shot, you’re just instantly killed.

  • Afo

    Don’t have high expectations, then you won’t be disappointed

  • VVFZ

    I wonder what kind of secondary game mode Sledgehammer can come up with? Treyarch has Zombies, IW has gayliens. Please don’t bring back Survival.

    • jordanxbrookes

      It’ll either Advanced Spec Ops or Cyborg/Robots.

  • Xecho

    Can’t vvait for the digital copy to release!

  • CharlieIntel

    Drivable vehicles in Call of Duty would be nice to have again.

    • jooker-jr

      They really have to balance them

      • Lord Travi$

        Plus Vehicles will affect map size and that will affect the flow of the game bigger maps = ghosts, small maps = MW2

        • Mitch

          With vehicles, you’d get closer to BF4 sized maps.

          • Lord Travi$

            I think He’s talking about Hover bikes not helicopters to travel around the map lol

          • Mitch

            You’d still need plenty of space to move around then. Hoverbikes probably wouldn’t even work in Ghosts maps.

          • Lord Travi$

            True but then again you would need to design the map for the hover bikes to take advantage of the actual maps you cant just put them anywhere and expect them to work.

          • Carter “Uathuil” Reed

            I don’t know… I kind of want drivable vehicles in MP, but not like Killstreaks. As far as I remember, WaW was the only CoD that did that.

        • jooker-jr

          How about one huge map with a lot of vehicles and if the community liked it then they release more maps with DLCs ?

  • Lord Travi$

    Funny they can’t find anything bad about AW so the new thing is “Bring back the cod WW2 games back!!!” LOOOOL why?! its just crusty guns you cant innovate in that era as you can in the future, I don’t understand these guys

    • SoulTaker

      This is why.

      • Lord Travi$

        oh looool

        • SoulTaker

          Lol Basically people who hate COD are gonna hate it no matter what. They’ll keep coming back just to hate on it but buy it then complain again. 🙂

    • Ben

      Some people like the WW2 era, that’s all.

  • jooker-jr
    • Jasco

      I feel like i saw this before.. in some place..

    • SoulTaker

      🙂 lol

  • Ryumoau

    According to page 78 of gameinformer, Sledgehammer’s co-founder Michael Condrey says that Advanced Warfare ‘is being built on a new engine”. It definetly looks different from previous games, but i remember IW saying Ghosts had a new engine as well. :/

    • Ben

      I’m pretty sure it’s just a revamped-polished IWengine.

  • The new Digital Gameinformer magazine issue is up. I am checking it out right now.

    • Waze

      Do you know of any way to read the article for free? I forgot to renew my subscription and I’m dying to read it.

  • Waze

    I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not physically and mentally capable of waiting until August for a multiplayer reveal, I NEED IT NOW!! But then again, everything always gets leaked early anyways.

    • Ben

      I hope somebody will leak a fully playable alpha or something this year… I remember when the Black Ops 2 beta build was leaked in 2012 September, it was amazing.

  • Guest

    No I don’t think you can.

  • Waze

    Anyone willing to share some interesting new info? I feel so left out lol.

    • Ryumoau

      look at my posts on the Gameinformer article. I’ve tried to post as much info as i thought was interesting.

      • Waze

        May God bless your soul, kind sir.

  • Jacky Liang

    This will be interesting. The trend with CoD is, if you change things too much, some fans will complain. If you don’t change, some fans will argue that CoD is the same every year. They have too much flexibility, and no flexibility at all. I just hope their post-launch support is good, i.e. BO2, and not Ghosts.
