YouTube personality Drift0r posted a new video today with a few new details about Advanced Warfare’s MP. Drift0r had a phone call with Michael Condrey, Sledgehammer Games’s Studio Head about some of the new features in MP. First and foremost, the gadgets and technology will be “balanced” according to Condrey. Condrey wanted to ““make it clear that they won’t be OP.”
The Exo Suits will be featured in multiplayer, and the team at SHGames has been working on implementing the suit into MP since the start of development.
“We spent a ton of time designing them and building our game around them,” said Condrey. “Not yet ready to say exactly how they will be in multiplayer though but we didn’t spend all that design time just for the campaign.”
“We wanted to make [movement] feel familiar to other CoD games but also added a few changes. We wanted to make a really fast paced CoD game.”
“Multiplayer is a core part of our game. It is getting a lot of attention and development time,” Condrey told Drift0r. “We are not ready to reveal what gadgets will be in multiplayer.”
Condrey also informed Drift0r that both former and current CoD players, including pro players are working with the team at SHGames on the MP of Advanced Warfare. Condrey says that the team values feedback immensely and listening to both the regular community and eSports is key to them. Condrey made it clear that he understands the differentiation between the communities and types of players out there.
“Most of the dev team are former or current CoD players, some eSports guys. They played through the last few cycles. That’s why we are working hard right now to make sure everything is balanced before launch. [We] take community and eSports feedback very seriously. The game is made for you to enjoy.”
