Sledgehammer Games spoke with Polygon in their latest interview. They spoke about the fact that female soldiers are in their game, and that their campaign, there’s a female solider who plays a major role. The character is introduced after the second-third level of the game. Michael Condrey says that the future of military shows increase in females in more active roles, which will be represented in their game.

        • kyr95

          Ki ego ;D xaxa

  • kplem

    does it really matter?

    • Bigi345

      Well after seeing the amount of people butthurt over ACU not having female characters. I guess it does, well according to butthurt feminists

      • ACU?

        edit: never mind, Assassins creed unity

        • Bigi345

          Assassin’s Creed Unity

        • Carter “Uathuil” Reed

          I was thinking Army Combat Uniform for some reason. ._.

      • kplem

        my opinion women ruin it (the soldiers) it doesn’t feel right in ghosts just hearing women say reloading or whatever it doesn’t feel like a battle, im used to MW2 WAW COD 4 etc etc of men going spastic (especially spetzanz) screaming all over the place, ghosts pissed me off just hearing woman screaming it was just a ball breaker their voices annoyed the fuck out of me, i hope if they do add them in MP (which i hope to god not) to be allowed to mute their voices

      • kplem

        + whats with women in games lately? why is it such a MASSIVE deal if ones in it? alot of girls i know actually cant stand women in the game they prefer hearing men scream out reloading, cover me etc etc

        • Bigi345

          I honestly have no idea.

          • kplem

            maybe its just the voices and way the made them in ghosts they are so annoying and bad. like lara croft Samas from metroid i was 100% fine with them they were absolute bad asses the devs did it right

  • Lord Beerus

    Hooray for equality! 😉

    But I’m sure we’ll still hear some “Call Of Duty is sexist!” complaints…

    • The opposite actually, people are complaining that there aren’t enough female characters in video games. Go to rockpapershotgun.com and see that there are a few articles complaining about Assassin’s Creed Unity co-op with no females…

      • Sal

        Then they’ll rant she is not a “demisexual proud transwymyn of color”. You can’t win with social justice warriors.

        • Something like this would be over the top:
          “Is he circumcised? I can’t play it if he’s not.”

  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

    Grills!!!

  • Chmopyzatoe Hobrincyka

    When there will be a multiplayer showoff?
    How long to wait?

    • Birchy

      End of August, begining of September, most likely

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    For people who say this is copying games like Titanfall or Crysis, just watch from 7:16.

    • Dean

      The first Crysis came out in 2007 — 7 years ago, so yeah… no.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Crysis in 2007 only had invisibility and enhanced jumping, if I remember correctly. Not double jumping as we have seen. Though invisibility could make it to AW MP, I doubt it, as it seems to difficult to balance. All of the features in AW have been researched, to see what tech will actually be available in 2054, realistically. And though they share similarities within the two games, AW barely copies anything from the original Crysis besides the fact that they both take place in the future and share similar tech.

  • Ryumoau

    That was an amazing interview.

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    Lol in the interview they said they even researched futuristic forks. It was attached to the iPhone. Introducing the iFork. http://tinyurl.com/ndtzclu

      …At the very low price of $800 plus tax 😉

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        What a deal!

  • kyr95

    Wow, ive read many articles from people who were at the showing of the two missions behind closed doors at E3, and they all complain that will the characters were running through the bushes they didnt bend them. Wow. I mean seriously? Complain about such small detail?

    • LovekillerX

      Some people just aren’t pleased from anything. And of course some people just want to find reasons to bash Call of Duty series. But I don’t care at all what some people say about this game. I think that you agree with me when I say that Sledgehammer Games have really put an effort and have done a lot of work. Just look at the graphics and every detail in the game – just amazing.

      • kyr95

        Shg is one of the most dedicated developers ive seen and you cant deny that.

        • LovekillerX

          I really can’t deny that. I really think that Sledgehammer Games have done really good work. I can’t wait until I get my hands on campaign which I wait the most. And of course multiplayer and stuff!

          • kyr95

            Me too! Ive seen people who also complain about the length of the campaign, well personally i dont care how long is it, as long as it has impact then im good ( take cod 4 for example, 4 hours of excellent campaign )

          • LovekillerX

            CoD 4 was awesome and it is one of the classics. I agree with you when you said length doesn’t matter. I just want a campaign with that good impact. I really hope that campaign is going to be amazing.

          • kyr95

            From what ive seen from the mission they showed, we can expect that, i mean i really felt bad for the guy that died and for Mitchell for losing his hand, i mean i connected with him!

          • keepupthegoodwork

            I am that guy who likes more multiplayer. Still, I am not so crazy that I would say that campaign should be taken away and make the game fully focused to multiplayer. Why? Because Call of Duty developers are the only FPS game developers, who actually make pretty good campaigns. Believe it or not, but I liked the most Ghosts campaign and MW3 multiplayer – the ones which were hated the most. <:)

          • kyr95

            Finally! Someone who agrees! Cod is one of the very very few fps that can deliver both good campaign and good multiplayer almost every year!

          • keepupthegoodwork

            But it is funny how MW3 multiplayer and Ghosts campaign get so much hate. MW3 multiplayer is the most balanced and that’s why I have over 30 days playtime in it. Then I have only like 2 day playtime in BO2, because it really is unbalanced and B flag place in those maps are horrible. Same with Ghosts multiplayer, but I enjoyed specially Ghosts campaign. Advanced Warfare seems like the most interesting Call of Duty yet and I have never been dissapointed before, unless you count on that BO2 multiplayer. 😀

          • Aldo

            I’m with you. I love MW3’s multiplayer and hate BO2! MW3 has some bs in it but so does every CoD, even the revered CoD4 had some bs.

          • MichiganerE

            CoD 4’s campaign was 7-8 hours long. 10+ on veteran.

          • kyr95

            I finished on 4 hours first time 😛 lol

          • MichiganerE

            Speed run?

          • kyr95

            It was my first call of duty, so no 😛

          • MichiganerE

            My first CoD was CoD 1… The very first…

          • kyr95

            I played all of them but in the wrong order 😛 amazing games

  • RdJokr

    You know, I haven’t been so excited for COD news since BO2. Read every bit of interview, watched almost every video. Schofield and Condrey are steadily becoming legends in my eyes. I mean, these guys actually care about making their campaign good. They care about making a great story, not just a great multiplayer experience. And I can say the same for Treyarch. IW used to, but boy was Ghosts terrible.

    • TheShadowReaper

      well the same can be said about Treyarch its just that they have our one and only beloved Vonderhaar! xD

      • kyr95

        Vonderhaar!!!

        • jordanxbrookes

          That’s my mate all over, during BO2’s life cycle he was constantly raging every time he got killed.

      • RdJokr

        Why are you forgetting Jimmy Zielinski? NOBODY CAN FORGET JIMMY Z!

        • TheShadowReaper

          maybe if he is more involved in the next Treyarch project then ok.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          I thought he was zombies.

        • Cpk

          The jay z of zombies lol

  • Choppabro2psn

    This much, I’ve already known 😉

  • DopeAap

    I really don’t understand the controversity over female characters in video games. It’s the same shit every year: ”Ermahgerd ther ah no gurls in dis gaem, Cad iz sexist” And now with AC Unity, where they are now bitching about female characters. There are enough hitbox glitches in ghosts on the Female characters imo

  • Bananon

    I want tumblr to die

  • TrackHo

    Females, such innovation.
