In the new issue of GameInformer, they also revealed that Advanced Warfare is getting a whole new audio engine. One of Dead Space’s veteran developers, Don Veca, joined SHGames when it was founded. He was a key player in making the audio engine for the Dead Space franchise and he is working on making a new audio engine for Advanced Warfare.

We’ve had two and a half years to create brand new tech to control and support this game. It’s something like 10 times the memory since this is next-gen. With all this extra memory and new mixing technology, we don’t have to compress everything. We can take things longer and them breathe.

    Nice nice. Titanfall on PC. Took an extra 30 something GB to decompress audio for crappy PCs.

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      Crappy PC’s? I’m not sure if you’re saying every PC is crap, but if you’re just talking about low-end PC’s, you’re wrong (you’re wrong either way, because PC IS BETTER THAN ANYTHING #PCMasterRace!) because I have pretty much the best RIG possible (only way to get better is going SLI) and I had to decompress those 40GB. Titanfall is a AWESOME GAME (CoD4/MW2 awesome), but it lacks unlockables, and that’s a big turn off for me. MY LIKE MY UNLOCKABLES BIG, JUICY AND A PAIN IN THE ASS TO GET!

      Baker was in Black Ops, Black Ops 2, MW2 & 3 so you probably already have.

      • RdJokr

        In MW2, he only voiced like 3-4 lines, while in gameplay it is pretty much the usual COD protag’s grunting. In BO and MW3, he voiced an NPC with not many lines either. In BO2, multiplayer voice, nuff said.

      This puts Infinity Ward and Treyarch to shame.

      • RdJokr

        To be fair, Sledgehammer is the FIRST studio with 3 years to develop their game. Obviously, they’re gonna be able to do more than what IW and Treyarch could do in 2 years with their games.
        Wait till next year when Treyarch pulls off another miracle with next-gen zombies.

        • KevinWoof

          Also, the fact that this is the first game developed firstly on the current gen consoles (PS4, Xbox One). But still, this looks good.

          • RdJokr

            Exactly. IW just had to try to take on all consoles, and in the end fucked up their chance to make Ghosts a true next-gen title. At least Sledgehammer won’t fall into the same mistake.

        Yeah…. “new”….

        • TheShadowReaper

          cause BF has been using a new engine since BF:BC2. its completely new. not just a better version of a 7 year old engine.

          • truth

            i’m not sure where you heard that, but do not listen to ‘them’.
            bad company 2 used the frostbite 1 engine, just like bc1. just upgraded. so does BF3 and BF4.

          • TheShadowReaper

            i’m being sarcastic here but yeah i see that its my fault for not clarifying that in some manner. ofc FB is being used since BC1 until now BF4 and various other EA games. its and old ass engine.

          • JohnyGPTSOAD

            Define “old ass engine”

          • TheShadowReaper

            being used since 2008 with the first game being BF:Bad Company. thats 6 years now aint it? not to say that it has been in development before 2008 so yeah…thats a lot of years.

          • JohnyGPTSOAD

            It has been before that (since 2006) because it takes time to build from the ground up.
            But its not an “old ass engine”. Unreal Engine and idTech Engine are far older, almost twice older.

          • TheShadowReaper

            the comparison to the Unreal isnt valid cause Unreal gets a visual overhaul every new generation of consoles. you can clearly see the difference between UE3 and UE4 so its not in the same category as all others.

            its is kinda old. i mean UE3 is 6-7 years old and they did an overhaul by releasing UE4. what did Frostbite did? just a small patch every 2 years? its still a good engine graphics wise but has a whole lot other problems like being broken as hell and not having good details like other engines do.

            ID Tech 3 is old, very old. COD is using ID Tech core but its so much modified that its not even close to being the same. we saw that on Ghosts a lot. shitty game but graphically really great lighting and details in that game.

          • JohnyGPTSOAD

            Frostbite is as old as Crysis for example. Its almost as beautiful, has amazing lighting, water simulation blablabla, i dont care. If you dont use your engine correctly the game turns out like shit, which is the case with for example Ghosts. Battlefield 4 is much MUCH more enjoyable than Ghosts. If CoDG was a 0 BF4’s playability would be a 1000. People say it’s buggy and unstable but i haven crashed once in 2 to 3 months. CoD’s Engine aka “IDTech3 modified to hell” is older than frostbite no matter what. They bs’d with ghosts saying it was new but something new has to be something made from scratch. Frostbite was built from scratch in 2006 and updated just like every other engine for each BF entry. From 1.0 (BC) to 1.5 (BC2) it had improvments. Then came 2.0 then they jumped to 3.0
            People also say that it looks the same but it just doesnt. Water combat was changed dramatically with the new water tech they put in the engine. CoDG doesnt have much going for it.
            Getting redone in versions every release or every new gen doesnt mean its new. The foundation’s always been there and it wont change. Frostbite is old, but CoD’s engine older because its using an older modified engine, a new version just comes out every year.

            Now is the time for them to make a totally new engine.

            Dont get me wrong i love CoD. Mw2 is my favorite followed by CoD4 and BO1. But since bo1, it came down hard with mw3 and the mp of bo2 was not that great (sp on the other hand was awesome).

            And i have hope for the series with SH’s CoDAW.

            But Battlefield is still Battlefield no matter what. No matter how much it crashes, no matter how much it costs me to play it on ultra and no matter what the Dev’s/Publisher does. I paid 80โ‚ฌ (bargain) for both BF4 and Premium for PC and i dont regret one bit. CoDG on the other hand is just bad. Bad SP compared to previous, MP is not played at all in the pc version and extinction is the only cool thing. Graphical wise Frostbite crushes Ghosts on both visual quality and optimization (90 fps’s avg in bf4 max settings res scale100%, 50 in cod ghosts all maxed).

            Engines dont get redone that often thats why it looks SIMILAR not the same.

            Call me fanboy, idiot, retard, fuck, EA’s cocksucker, etc. all you want but superiority stands on Battlefield’s side, as last years BF4 is far Superior to CoDG and in 2011’s BF and CoD entries, CoDMW3 gets stepped on by BF3.

            Conclusion: Dont measure how bad an engine is with the games that are made in them. CoD’s Engine has potential but it wasnt used correctly, Battlefield’s Frostbite also has the potential but its unstable. Both engines are good no matter how old they are. Older engines can kick new engine’s asses.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            But DICE improves and ups the power of Frostbite every 4 years/2 games significantly. Yes, Frostbite was made for BF:BC, which came out in 2008. Yes, Frostbite 3 is a heavily modified version of Frostbite. Frostbite 2 had more changed stuff than stuff that stayed, the only thing that stayed was, obviously,the destruction capabilities, some VO audio from MP characters and things like bullet drop (which was significantly changed for Frostbite 2) so it can be almost called a brand new engine, ALMOST! And no, it isn’t old. Most of the game engines are older than Frostbite. Been old doesn’t mean anything. The IW Engine could be stronger than the Frostbite, or even CryEngine. It would just take way more time to rework on it, since you would have to delete, change and add codes to it, redesign the UI, etc. Making a brand new engine is way easier.
            Since Frostbite is one of the most powerful engines out there, why make a brand new? Frostbite 2 had pretty much everything changed, other than it’s base. New animations, new sounds, more raw power, better destruction, better particles, volumetric smoke, authentic lighting (AKA realistic), and so on…. But CoD didn’t a major change since CoD 4.

            I remember you saying that you’re favorite engine was the UE engine, which is way older than Frostbite, so I don’t know that your problem is with Frostbite and Battlefield. If you don’t like it, just don’t talk about it. There’s no need to hate on it. Battlefield has become more and more popular of a reason.
            And who knows, maybe SH will make CoD restore it’s popularity.
            Unreal Engine 4 is a modified version of Unreal Engine 3, and Unreal Engine 3 is probably a modified version of Unreal Engine 2, and so on. I have to admit that, other than knowing that UE 4 is an HEAVILY (obviously, because it looks amazing!) modified version of the UE 3, I don’t know much about the engine’s history (I played with both of them around for a little bit). If you have a thing that works, and can be modified to work even better, you’re pretty naive if you toss that out. Frostbite is clearly an amazing engine, since it’s going to be used by every EA dev other than Sports games. If Frostbite wasn’t good, devs would tell EA that they would rather stick with their engines, and teams like Visceral had amazing engines. CryEngine 3 for example, is without a doubt, the strongest, most beautiful gaming engine ever made. And since Crysis came out, it has become a Benchmark standard. Crysis came out in 2007, which makes CryEngine older than Frostbite, but you wouldn’t call CryEngine 3 “an old ass engine” would you?
            I know that you don’t like Battlefield, but hating so much on it and on it’s engine just because it was made for Battlefield seems kind of irrational.

            ***NOT TRYING TO MAKE ENEMIES, JUST A CIVILIZED CONVERSATION***

          • TheShadowReaper

            my problem is that the BF fanbase is putting down COD for its engine when their game is essentially doing the same. its a redo of an old ass engine. BF4 wasnt anything spectacular a leap from BF3 Frostbite yet they keep ranting about how amazing the engine is when there are literally no changes whatsoever but they mock COD for that…fucking hypocracy.

            also, every time Unreal Engine launches is at the end of a console generation or the start of a new generation, giving it a good 6-7 years to be developed at least. its not just a redo, its a grand overhaul and you can clearly see that between UE3 and UE4. dont you dare compare the Frostbite Engine to Unreal. an engine that is redone over and over again and is being changed for merely 2 years or less for the launch of the next BF game. its not the same and you know it, yet you clown choose to ignore that. even more hypocracy. good going mate!

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            From BF3 to BF4 there wasn’t a big leap, because, as I said, they improve their engine every 2 games. Still, BF4 changed way more than Ghosts did… And I’m the clow here? I mean, use your fucking braincells, they’re there for a reason. I tried to be polite, but it looks like you like to insult people. Well, that get’s you everywhere doesn’t it? And tell me HOW THE FUCK didn’t Frostbite changing? You most be really fucking blind. Tell me what changed from the CoD 4’s version of IW Engine to Ghosts then I’ll tell you want has changed in Frostbite since BC. I guarantee you that Frostbite has changed way more than the CoD’s engine. Denying it it’s like denying that the Earth is spherical…
            From BC2 to BF3 (2 years) the Frostbite changed more than from CoD 4 to Ghosts…

            + I wasn’t comparing UE to anything other than itself… You’re seriously naive in terms of how engines work…

          • TheShadowReaper

            so your big ego was hurt because i called you a clown? which btw is true, you are a clown in this argument.

            but that is the point i made which you missed! COD fans never boasted about COD’s engine. BF fanboys and EA on the other hand were all about the Frostbite engine and how superior it is and how much better it is…when we all knew that wasnt the case, it was better but not THAT better. and not to say that ID Tech 3 is twice as old as Frostbite and still had better colors and details than Frostbite. Frostbite was a scam. just good marketing from EA’s part for the BF fanboys to drool over something. which was sad to say the least. its clear that i’m not the one who doesnt know what i’m talking about.

            just in case you missed the difference between Quake III Arena (which is the first game to use ID Tech 3) and COD Ghosts heres a comparison. and just in case you missed the difference between COD4 and Ghosts here you are again.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel
          • TheShadowReaper

            the screenshots are screens from single player not multiplayer. lol such a loser…also NFS isnt a FPS game, its a racing game in case you forgot that.

            another thing, what happened to the COD graphics argument and ID Tech 3? i see that i made you shut up about it with facts. that makes me happy.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Iยซm the loser? Because you either never played BF4 as you said you did, or your math is really bad. Because 9 of those screenshots are from Multiplayer. Which means you actually think they look to nice to be multiplayer, well you’re the loser here.

            “what happened to the COD graphics argument and ID Tech 3?” Are colors now graphics? I mean, damn, you do from irracional to insanely stupid…
            NFS is a game that runs on Forstbite 3, you seem to confuse a lot of things when you’re having an argument don’t you?
            “i see that i made you shut up about it with facts.”
            Never saw 1 fact. Not even 1!
            Alright, let me go read all your responses….

            Nope, NOT A SINGLE THING YOU SAID MADE SENSE. Id Tech 3 being more detailed. I don’t know what you mean by detail, but if you don’t know, detail in a game are the textures resolution (and quality of course). Ghosts textures are only 720p (high settings), and if you choose the extra settings, it upscales them to 1080p.

          • TheShadowReaper

            because now graphics are only pixels, not lighting, not AA, not SSAO or HBAO, not textures, no of course not! if you can see the difference in the pictures then i have nothing to say to you. fanboys are just unreasonable fucktards. and you are proving this right now.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Alright, let me copy your fucking comment.

            “…and not to say that ID Tech 3 is twice as old as Frostbite and still had better colors and details than Frostbite.”

            Damn, did you get more than the normal dosage of ‘The Elixir of Stupidity’ you usually take? I don’t know what your point is here. But the only thing you did was write about Id Tech 3 and how it is more detailed than Frostbite. Id Tech 3 was used only on the first CoD. CoD didn’t had ambient occlision, I don’t know if it had any AA, since I never played CoD 1 that much to remember if it had Anti-Aliasing.
            As I said, details are not “The whole package”. Details are the textures. The textures on Ghosts are horrific compared to BF4.
            No, Ghosts doesn’t look bad, it actually looks good, just like every other CoD, but people are expecting way more from the so called “Juggernaut”…

            And I’m the fanboy here? I’m not dishing CoD like you’re dishing Frostbite. I’m comparing them head-to-head. And I’m gonna hop in right now on each, go to the first mission and take couple screenshots of each game, right when the in-game cutscenes start. And some more during the best looking mission in Ghosts (Legends Never Die) and some from Battlefield 4 (they’re all similar in terms of graphics). I’m gonna try to get some close-ups on their faces, weapons, some textures around the world and then we’ll see.

          • TheShadowReaper

            i’m dishing Frostbite, EA and DICE because i have seen a colossal number of problems in their engine, practices and actual game. so many that its a turn off just hearing EA these days. can you really blame me though? seeing all these shitty things that are happening to EVERY EA game or franchise.

            – Battlefield is just a COD wannabe with the difference of being broken as fuck instead of trying to do its own thing like COD does.
            – no words for Need for Speed. just fuck it…
            – Cimcity, thats all i need to say to make my argument.
            +++++ so many more.

            am not wrong here. if every EA franchise has been turned to shit why is BF any different? mind if you remove these BF fanboy glasses of yours?

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            BF fanboy glasses? Now that’s a new right there.

            The only real problem with BF is bugs. (using the word ‘only’ VERY lightly.) And yes, I realize that Battlefield 4’s launch was probably the worst Triple A launch ever, but Battlefield is everything BUT a CoD wannabe. And saying that is so irrational. Why would DICE make the make more Conquest focused, add game-modes like Air Superiority, Tank Superiority, Obliteration, Carrier Assault.

            Battlefield never tried to be CoD. Yes, it did change some stuff to appeal a wider audience since it was more of a hardcore game, and the only way to appeal to that wider audience is to “copy” CoD. The only real thing that I see that Battlefield “copied” from CoD was by becoming more fast-paced.

            Now tell me your side of the story. Why is Battlefield a “CoD wannabe”? Because in my opinion, that makes zero sense.

            Yes, EA wants money, just like Rockstar, Ubisoft, Activision, Sony, Oculus, and all the others. The thing is that all the other publishers know how to satisfy the customer, but I’m excluding Activision, but we’ll get there.
            The only problem with SimCity was the DRM (which I can see why they made that, the Sims series is the most pirated series EVER. Specially Sims 3. And the servers not handling players, which happens pretty much every time. GTA V was no exeption, but Rockstar warned us before the Online was ‘Online’). Mass Effect for having day 1 DLC and other than The Sims expansions costing to fucking much, I don’t see anything else. It seems that EA always fucks up because they own the most IP’s, and some of the most original ones, as well.
            EAs also known for launching games to soon, that also affects them by a ton because it tells us that they don’t really give a shit about the product other than “Well, it will make me more of this green stuff!” And then announce DLC’s like there’s no tomorrow, eventhough the game isn’t working 110%, like it should. Battlefield 4 WAS NOT ready to launch until, AT LEAST June-July of this year. And DICE has been pushed as fuck lately, making 3 games (BF4, SW:BF and Mirror’s Edge) while having to help other devs (MoH: Warfighter, Need for Speed Rivals and Most Wanted). Battlefield is also a game where there is a BIGGER change of failure than CoD. Since one code can fuck another, and there’s billions of code-lines there. There isn’t many things you can do in CoD’s MP to try and exploits the game. Put there are almost endless possibilities to exploit something in Battlefield, since it has all those vehicles, destruction, and so on…
            And here’s a thing I gotta give CoD my respect, eventhough they don’t innovate much, what they have actually works. At least on consoles anyways xD…. (I’M TALKING DIRECTLY TO YOU INFINITY WARD)
            Sledgehammer seem to be innovating a lot in terms of Raw Power (Engine, Sound, etc). I’m not pumped to play it, but I’m intrigued by it, not gonna lie.
            Yes, I like Battlefield very much, play it since BF2, so I’m a vivid fan. I’m also a fan of CoD, but I am honest. CoD needs to change pretty much everything, from graphics to gameplay, innovate a bit. AND GET RID OF THESE CoD/Squad Points bullshit. Black Ops II did it right more than right. I want more attachments than perks. Ghosts is the most confusing CoD ever.

            But getting to the Activision part of this. Activision is doing a smart/douche move, which is microtransactions. I’m don’t really have anything against camos. But Ghosts has taken it way to far, and it is way obvious that Activision is pushing to see ’til when will the customer take it. And you NEED to agree with me in this one. People shouldn’t be happy because they paid 2 bucks for a dog re-skin (WOLF) that was ALREADY IN THE GAME. If you go to Ghosts steam page you see that the game looks more of a F2P than a full price, Triple A title.

            CoD isn’t a bad game, but it isn’t the CoD i used to know.

          • TheShadowReaper

            well, thats YOUR opinion and mine is what it is. but if BF didnt copied COD by making itself more fast paced and casual what else it needs to do for that to be valid in YOUR criteria? you are a BF fanboy for sure now that i’ve seen you typing that, there’s no mistake in it. also, BF sucks not because it copies COD or is worse than COD imo. it sucks ass because it fails to deliver the good old BF experience that we had with every BF game until BF 2142. its a fucking casual fest. it makes me sick watching people talking about COD being casual when the game they play has changed into that format as well. hypocrites everywhere.

            i’ll complete ignore this giant wall text, its too big even for me to read.

            but that last sentence caught my eye. what do you mean its not the COD you knew? because apart from Ghosts every other game in the franchise has been keeping the heart and soul of the franchise pretty well.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Battlefield is far from casual. I didn’t knew that changing the pace of a game is considered copying. Because fast-paced is not a thing from CoD only. Did Ghosts copy Killzone with the sliding? Or the vault from Battlefield? Of course not.
            Black Ops II multiplayer doesn’t feel like the old CoDs (I still have fun with it). SP is amazing though. By far, one of the best stories I’ve played (Black Ops series).
            The only thing Battlefield changed from it’s old formula is that now it makes more explosives to destroy vehicles. But it’s way better than what it was before. Games need to evolve. They can’t be stuck forever in the same year.

            And MW3 wasn’t good either. Liking it doesn’t mean it is good. I could like, for example WarZ/Infestation, it is still a fact that is was a scam and that it is a really bad game.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Nice details. Those pixels really gave me the HARD ON.

            “We all knew that wasnt the case” Yes, because you’ve studied Game Designing, and worked with Frostbite didn’t you?
            Frostbite was a scamยป Damn, I’ve seriously NEVER seem so much stupidity together, HOOOLY SHIEEET! A scam is the “new ghosts engine” NOW THAT’S A SCAM. You don’t seem to know what the fuck a scam is. WarZ was a scam. Frostbite delivered way more than most engines back in 2008. And there wasn’t neraly as much problems as there were with BF4. You should just shut the fuck up. And you have to see a doctor man, your intestines are attached to your brain and mouth.

            such maturity, much butthurt. you BF fanboys always fail to impress me even in the slightest.

          • DanDustEmOff

            His insult aside his statement was absolutely correct. BFBC2 and BF3 have very little difference between them in a graphical sense and I would argue that BFBC2 was a much better game that BF3.

          • Aldo

            Er, strictly speaking the Earth isn’t spherical, it’s nearly spherical as it ‘flattens out’ along the axis at both poles! It’s an oblate spheroid to be precise. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • DanDustEmOff

            I agree with your argument completely… but then you have to start insulting him. Why? The guy asked for a grown up conversation and you call him a clown. You had a good solid argument and ruined it right at the end.

          • TheShadowReaper

            but he is a clown! look…i cant stand people that spread misinformation and preach it like its god. these are clowns to me. if he said something correct i wouldnt mind but…what he says is false and worse than that is that he is aware of it.

          • DanDustEmOff

            He may be a clown he could be an utter tool, but you only make you’re argument weaker by resorting to insults. Fair enough if he starts it. If not though it’s always better to show some patience for his opinion rather than contempt.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Well, you are a pretty stupid and selfish “clown” then. Good luck with life.

          • TheShadowReaper

            it seems that you cant take it when you’re losing in an argument. i suggest taking a break from the internet and focus on life a little bit instead.

          • Jkice

            It’s not DICE who improves the engine.

          • DanDustEmOff

            Who is then?

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Please, just, shut up when you don’t know what you’re talking about.

          • DanDustEmOff

            I’m sorry but I respectfully disagree. Well except for the bit about the Cry Engine and Crysis. Frostbite is a heavily modified Refractor Engine. It’s also a bad engine and always has been. Yes it looks visually good but it’s broken and always has been. When they first began “creating” Frostbite they badly altered so much code that they couldn’t get the engine to function outside of DICE’s internal network and they have been papering over the cracks ever since.
            CoD also changes a lot from title to title but keeps the same core features. CoD 3 and Ghosts on the 360 are worlds apart and still run at 60 fps (although there are more frame rate drops in more recent titles). Dice have had it easy really, by running the game at 30 fps they can make the console version look better without much effort.
            On the PC Ghosts is on par and even better than BF4 in certain graphical areas. Textures for instance are much more detailed especially when up close. The one thing that lets Ghosts down is the colour scheme, BF maps use a much brighter pallet making the maps look vibrant but the textures are bland.
            Unreal 4 is a rare exception to the rule. Tim Sweeny is an absolute legend, He worked exclusively on the engine between 2003 and 2008 before he was happy enough to pass the engine on to the rest of the Epic team. This is one of the engines that is truly new (well as new as we are ever likely to see).

          • DanDustEmOff

            It’s actually worse than that Frostbite is just a heavily upgraded Refractor engine that dates back to 99.

          • TheShadowReaper

            maybe, maybe not. i need to see proof to believe that. mind if you give me any?

          • DanDustEmOff

            Not really got anything to give you but if you play BF2 and the play BFBC back to back you can tell that the engine is the same in essence.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlefield_(series)
            I only have my experience of both games to go on. They have the same feel, but to answer your question no I don’t have definitive proof.

          • TheShadowReaper

            well then…that statement is false i guess. i have played a lot of BF2 and i can safely say that it looks or feels nothing like BC2 on PC. i give you my word on that. now…if they were inspired by their old work (namely the Refractor engine) i guess that can be a possibility but still no connection between the two.

          • DanDustEmOff

            I wouldn’t go as far to say as it is false, it’s my opinion. You can not prove me wrong just as much as I cant prove I’m right. For me the similarities are there. Quake doesn’t feel like CoD but it’s there. It’s the small things like the hit registration, the network code, the hit box sizes, the scale, etc..

          • TheShadowReaper

            yeah but, the difference is that we know for a fact that COD was and is using a heavily modified version of ID Tech 3. EA said that DICE made the Frostbite Engine from scratch. although i wouldnt be surprised if the lied, but still we dont have an official anouncement on that…

          • DanDustEmOff

            Exactly… “EA” said.

          • MichiganerE

            When did I say Battlefield get’s a new engine? I know it doesn’t. Are you getting defensive because I said CoD’s engine isn’t new?

  • VVFZ

    If Ghosts wasn’t so bad I’d be having fun waiting for this game, BUT IT SUCKS DICK

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      Go play BF3, you’ll have fun on that game. I would even say BF4, but it still has some bugs, since the dev can’t reproduce them, and bugs can’t be fixed without knowing how to reproduce them.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Don’t hate on me for saying this, but Battlefield 3 is so much better than Battlefield 4. There was something about BF3 that I liked. And of course not to mention the legendary Battlefield: Bad Company and Bad Company 2.

        • TheShadowReaper

          if we wanna go the legendary route, BF2 is where its at. BC2 and BF3 bow before the BF king.

        • NuttyTheSquirrel

          Battlefield 3 is in a better condition, yes. But if BF4 was working 100% like BF3 is, BF4 would be better.
          BF4 is better than BF3, but what fucks it up is the problems that it still has. And, I’m sorry to say this and I know many people will disagree but, BF3 is far better than BC2. (I LOVE BC2, RUSH ON VALPARAISO *~* <3)

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    After Ghosts, I thought I would never get hyped for a COD again. I was wrong.

    • jordanxbrookes

      We were all wrong…

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      I think that my brain finally accepted that CoD isn’t as exiting as the trailers make it look. I was hyped for MW3, shit. BO2, good game but a shit CoD compared to older CoD’s (not counting MW3) and then Ghosts. When I saw the trailer, all I saw and thought was: “MEH, MEH, MEHMEMEMEMEMMEMEEMEEEEEHHHHH”, but this news are rather interesting. It seems like SH is actually trying to innovate, a thing that CoD desperately needs. Right now if they gave me MW2/BLACK OPS with updated engine (visuals, sounds, simulations, particles, and so on) I WOULD BE GOLDEEEN! I won’t say I’m hyped, far past this CoD news sorcery, but this news are intriguing indeed.

  • Cody

    Call Of Duty: Advance Warfare “Horde Mode” Similar to Extinction and Zombies.

    I have no details on what it involves though.

    All I can confirm that it’s survival co-op.

    Spec – ops will NOT be returning.

    Also, I have info on one of the killstreaks.

    Remember that big looking dude with a minigun in the trailer? He is a killstreak in MP.

    The name they originally gave it during development was called “Exon-Assault” and “Exon-Juggernaut”.

    However, they felt those names sounded to similar to infinity ward killstreaks, so they are changing it in the final build of the game. I have no idea what will be the finalized name. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OawUsOHzt4k

    • jordanxbrookes

      I don’t mean to be rude but can stop spamming Troll Munchies, this is like the 3rd time you linked the same video.

      • Crusf

        Whats even more sad is the fact he is upvoting his own comment in hopes of gaining the top comment spot. Youtube has gone to shit since money was involved -_-

        • jordanxbrookes

          My channel is partnered with a network, but I managed to not make any YouTube revenue because I do it for fun and to share my videos with people. Remember those days where money weren’t earned on YouTube? I don’t know. Maybe one day I’ll be making money from YouTube, but for the last 3 years I’ve managed to go without and you know what? It’s been a very fun experience.

          • TheShadowReaper

            hey give me a link to your channel. lets see if you have anything interesting to listen to… ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Why are you hating on Troll Munchies? His videos are funny.

        • jordanxbrookes

          It’s not hating him, it’s the fact that this is BS.

    • RC-1009/2025

      And what is this guys sourc or did he make it all up?

  • Didn’t IW do this for Ghosts as well? The whole inside/outside environment sound change stuff. I remember a demo showing movement inside and outside the cargo container on Octane B point. And there plenty of times that audio is non-existent in MP in seems. Get killed from a shotgun 10ft away and I never heard a thing yet in the replay it’s loud as can be. I don’t see this as very big news.

  • NuttyTheSquirrel

    Well, that’s nice. Gotta wait and see.
    And if this is all true, if SH fails, they could still be the guys working just on the engine. And the technical/3d artists, level designers, illustrators, some animators (basic animations like run, sprint, vault, etc are still an engine thing) and so on could be distributed between IW and Treyarch, although I think that Treyarch is the only savior of CoD right now. (didn’t like BO2 very much tho)

    This is a forum haha.

      I wouldn’t say so, it’s not specifically dedicated to talking about a set idea. This is a comment section for a post not a forum.

  • NiftyGam3r

    Could it be? Could this be that defining cod that brings the whole community together with excitement and goosebumbs. Kinda like cod 4

  • Bob Mit

    I hope its true.

  • Batman

    Even if this game fails……..it will suceed
    They changed everything, brought us a whole new setting like cod 4, a carefully researched setting with attention on detail, better graphics than battlefield, brand new vision and story.
    Lets not forget about how this will change everything about MP

  • Ryumoau

    Dead Space had amazing sound design, so i can’t wait to see how much more impressive AW will be with next gen tech. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Bring war game back!

    Why can I not get hyped, probably because of the dissapoinments that were Ghosts and BO2 ๐Ÿ™

    • Elektrobanq

      I’ve been disappointed with the new CODs since MW3 (although BO2’s Zombies and multiplayer were pretty good). Yet I always am stoked to play the next installment once the reveal trailer drops. You have to admit, CODAW looks pretty damn good and is actually making some significant changes (campaign set in the future with mechs and exo-suits). We all know how good Call of Duty can be. There is always room for hope when it comes to the next installment. I look forward to playing it.

  • Mario Rivera

    Lets just hope the game isnt filled with bs. Ghosts has great sound too…

  • Daniel M

    Thank god, I love good audio makes the whole game a lot more realistic.

    Can’t wait <3

  • thebulky1cometh

    I am a COD guy through and through, but I recently started playing bf4 because I was so angry with Ghosts. Now I know the 2 sides love to bicker, but I will say that the superior sound in BF4’s multiplayer makes a major positive impact on the experience. I’m hoping Advanced Warfare can also put together a superior audio experience.

  • Guest

    At least now grenades won’t sound like coins hitting the ground.

  • MIKKEtheMIDGET

    OMG this game has made me so hyped! Cannot wait!!!

  • NuttyTheSquirrel

    If the audio is nearly as good as Battlefield 3/4, then it’s just going to be amazing. There’s no doubt that Battlefield has the most realistic sounds in the gaming world. And Ghosts sounds were kinda shitty (mtar-x for example, never heard such a bad sound)

    • TheShadowReaper

      yeah the only thing i’ll ever agree to is the audio quality of the Frostbite Engine. although its not really just Frostbite itself. even if they were using a shitty engine DICE could have made it work somehow on the audio department.

    • jooker-jr

      Veteran Metal Gear Solid composer Harry Gregson-Williams is working on the game’s soundtrack. Audio director Don Veca says, “I think Advanced Warfare is going to be the best-sounding and certainly the best-mixed game ever.”

        • jooker-jr

          I still can’t believe it. This game is better than what I imagined

          • kyr95

            Every year we get excited for a cod, its natural we want to see new campaign, new guns and maps, and maybe new ideas on multiplayer, but this year is different, this is supposed to be a revolutionary cod, the cod that will take the franchise to a new direction. And although we dont know anything about MP, i have a feeling that it will definitely deliver.

          • thebulky1cometh

            Ha you ever heard that phrase that begins with, “Don’t count your chickens…”?

      I gotta try and hang on until E3 and august!!!

          Man, the details SHG has put just in the campaign..unbelievable,cant wait to see the MP, and screw all the haters that claim that AW is “titanfall,halo,crysis” copy. if this was bf no one would bash it

          • Jack Lame

            This would be the best game ever if it was BF, smh.

          • kyr95

            Yeah, i mean just look at the comments.

            -“Hoverbikes, totally Halo! ”

            Dafuq is wrong with them?

    I like how the whole COD community was scared of Sledgehammer making the next COD but their game looks better than any COD in the couple past years

  • VVFZ

    Why didn’t they think of this 3-year cycle earlier? Jeez an extra 365 days to develop a video game.

    • Jack Lame

      They did, since 2010, before that it wasn’t really needed.

      • VVFZ

        Thank you for the answer kind sir

  • casualwrekerrr15

    people are so stupid if treyarch did a world war 1 game there will be little ideas/things they could add to the game as previous cods have already done so but with cod aw they dont have to strain with ideas as the future has tonnes of prospects. people dont ask for what has already being done!!

    • jooker-jr

      IMO WW2 game will be fun for about a week

    Wait…2 and a half years making the tech to support the game?. 3yrs total build time…so they spent 6 months on the campaign and multiplayer???.
