Digital Foundry has posted an extensive analysis on Advanced Warfare’s E3 2014 ‘Induction’ mission demo, which was running on Xbox One. According to Digital Foundry, Advanced Warfare is ‘COD’s biggest technology leap since Call of Duty 2.’

Digital Foundry’s first impressions were that Advanced Warfare’s graphical changes were much improved over Call of Duty: Ghosts. Ghosts ran at 720p on Xbox One; it did reach 1080p on PS4, but is plagued with frame-rate issues and more.

Doing tests on Advanced Warfare’s demo video, they have been able to once again state that Advanced Warfare is running at 900p on Xbox One, improved over Ghosts’s 720p. However, there appears to be a trade off while doing this. Advanced Warfare’s demo appears to have major frame rate issues, where the game drops to 40s and 30s FPS at certain points. The game, in it’s current (probably alpha build) state, can’t seem to hold up to the silky-smooth 60FPS that Ghosts runs at.

Sledgehammer Games’s full focus has been on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, and they have stated that some of the technologies they have used in Advanced Warfare wouldn’t be possible on Xbox 360 & PS3.

While there is some concern on how the frame rate will turn out, the build shown at E3 was done before Microsoft’s June XDK, which now gives developers access to 10% more RAM, which could lead to a stable FPS for the title. We still haven’t, and probably won’t till launch, see any PS4 footage, so it’s not possible to determine how the game will run on that platform as of now.

  • 60FPS is a key for Call of Duty.

  • 60 FPS or GTFO.

  • filthy console peasants

    I think PS4 will run it at a higher resolution and FPS, possibly PC, but that depends on optimisation for the PC port.

    They may have to downgrade the resolution for Xbox One, unless they can optimise it between now and launch, with the latter being more probable.

    The most probable thing is however is that they will downgrade the multiplayer to get it locked at 60fps, while trying their best with the campaign to get it at 60fps with them graphics – if you’ve seen some of their more recent developer entry videos on the official Call of Duty YouTube channel, you can tell that some of the clips are multiplayer (from the maps) and they certainly don’t look as good as the campaign – from the environments to the faces (obviously because they have not done mocap for the mutliplayer characters).

    IMO it doesn’t matter – I’d rather have 60fps than an unlocked frame rate.

  • xmaccabix

    As much as I respect the work digitial foundry puts into these type of tests this should be treated with a large caveat and one i feel you guys should point out.
    All footage shown at E3 for Advanced Warfare and for that matter nearly all unreleased games shown are done from a vertical slice. For those not familiar with what these are. Basically a vertical slice is is just part of a game made specifically to show usually they have all the settings turned up full to show how the game “could look” . As the vertical slice isn’t the full game all the consoles or pcs resources then can be used to run this one small section. As such seeing fps drops is not uncommon. and should not really be an indication of the final game (watchdogs 2013 E3 footage anyone?)

    • kyr95

      Finally! Someone who gets it!

  • LovekillerX

    Hopefully they can find a solution for this problem and fix it. Call of Duty has always been at stable 60fps and it would be a shame if it would now be less. But I think that Sledgehammer Games is trying to fix this.

    We should remember that this is just alpha footage and only results in actual game being released november really matters. I don’t care if it would be for example 900p and 60fps. I just care for higher framerate.

    Just keep your thumbs up and let’s really hope that they can fix this. I have full thrust for Sledgehammer Games. This far they have done really good work and I just can’t wait for more details for the campaign and of course multiplayer!

    Lol does anyone know how to change my profile pic. I just created an account.

    • k5berry

      I checked on mobile so it might be different on desktop, but the way I did it was go on Disqus.com, and then where it said “welcome, k5berry” with the drop down menu, I clicked on “my home”. Then i clicked on the gear, and clicked on the “edit profile” link, and clicked on “avatar”.
      Edit: I don’t know why, but i realized that for that specific gear to pop up, i had to hit the “edit profile” bar next to the big gear, and then exit out of the pop up menu that followed, and the small gear along with a like grid of dots showed up at the top

    What about this video then? Straight from the E3 Live Coverage:

    http://www.eurogamer.net/videos/call-of-duty-advanced-warfare-e3-2014-60fps-video

    • LovekillerX

      Is that footage straight from the console or how it was captured?

      • kyr95

        Straight from the console i believe.

        • LovekillerX

          Okay thanks. Really hoping that it is stable 60fps.

          • kyr95

            Lets remember people that its alpha build. And in one of the very first interviews Glen and Michael stated that theyre aiming first at 60 fps and then to as higher resolution as possible. The video from youtube is from xbox one BUT at 1080p, so in order to fix the fps they might have to downgrade it to 900p as they were planning originally. I dont have a problem with that 😛

          • LovekillerX

            I don’t have a problem with that too. In the end you or atleast me won’t see big difference between 900p and 1080p. And alpha builds always have problems with framerates or resolutions and stuff like that so we don’t have to worry yet.

          • kyr95

            Exactly! I mean honestly if we judge this game from the state it was presented at E3 then we should be like that to every game 😛

          • LovekillerX

            Agreed. We can only judge this game when we get our own hands to story and multiplayer. And of course that yet not revealed gamemode like zombies.

          • kyr95

            Precisely! I mean in all honesty we still have months till the game is released, and SHG is doing the best they can to polish it since June. The least we can expect as far as XboxOne goes, is 900p 60 fps. No problem here 🙂

          • LovekillerX

            Yep. I’m going to buy a PS4 version so performance should be a little better. Atleast this far games have been slightly better on PS4.

          • kyr95

            Im sticking with my pc simply because im out of “green” lol 😛

          • jordanxbrookes

            Remember Watch_Dogs? Look how that went down, people complaining that Ubisoft are liars and how their PC port is crap compared to the E3 demos. Gamers these days.

          • LovekillerX

            Gamers can’t appreciate developer’s hard work. Nowadays kids and some adults just yell how developers don’t listen to costumers. Always whining about how for example Call of Duty is always the same. Yet they praise Nintendo games like Legend of Zelda and Mario. I don’t get it and it always makes me angry when I see people praising same old Nintendo games which almost never changes and same people judge games like Call of Duty without even playing the newest Call of Duty.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I know, sadly this is what the world has come to. *Mario Kart 8, the same as Mario Kart 7, but now with anti-gravity* “WOOOAH LOOK AT THIS AWESOME NEW GAME, THIS IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT, #WINTENDO!” *Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare* “Nah it’s the same sh*t and they copied Halo/Titanfall/Crysis blah blah blah Call for Money: Recycled Warfare hahaha” The idiots of the modern world. EDIT: I am not hating on MK8, just stating what these so-called “GAMERS” are like.

          • LovekillerX

            Exactly! Nice to see someone who agrees with me. If I would go to IGN and write this same comment I would start a s**tstorm. People never learn and you said well what I have been always thinking. Nintendo games have always been the same and yet people praise same old kid’s games.

            Nowadays in the Internet you can’t tell your opinion without being called names and cursing. You always have to agree with everyone and you don’t have right to your own opinion. It is just so sad.

            Call of Duty is going to totally new direction and it is going to change. It is not recycling in my opinion. Just look at the graphics and compare it with Call of Duty Ghosts. I can see a huge difference and only stupid people with bad sight could see no difference.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I know man, IGN have the worst comment section ever. Every CoD article everyone talks about how it’s copy & paste, Halo/Crysis/Titanfall clone etc. the Facebook page is worse. You’ll either find “Not CoD 0/10 – IGN” comments, negative comments or how everyone mentions Naomi’s breasts, smh -_-

          • LovekillerX

            Haha yeah I know! ING users are the worst ever. IGN is the last place to put your own opinion. Just say how great Call of Duty is and everyone “attacks” you. Here in Charlieintel you can tell your own opinion without being attacked. I’m appriciating that opportunity.

          • TheShadowReaper

            7 years ago when COD4 released i would never have imagined that i would be bashed, insulted or frowned upon just because i like COD. gamers these days…

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            You could say the same about Super Smash Bros. BARELY any real changes.

          • 111AlaN111

            Yeah, but people still love that game, and if the Super Smash Bros saga goes out, Nintendo would lose many potential sales.

          • Grenada!

            Yeah, what Mario game are we on now, like the 20th? They need to let go of the Mario series because it’s old and dated. Bring us something new Nintendo.

          • 111AlaN111

            Gamers love Mario. People bought the Wii U for classics like Mario Kart. When Mario Kart was out, the Wii U was bought 666% faster than before.

            Even if Mario Kart has many games, it still keeps fresh, and people buy that game and they never are disappointed.

    • TheShadowReaper

      i dont get why you got likes for that my friend. not to bash you or harp on you but…this video you linked us is sped up to 60 fps. its not true 60 fps. its the usual trailer just sped up (and unfortunately cause it a video its locked to the fps which makes it seem like a sped up version of a cat video). i knew the moment i glanced at it. not your fault or anything, i just dont get why people would do that.

      • kyr95

        Oh…didnt know that :/

  • Seven

    Honesty i dont like how they are pushing it into the future. This looks like halo

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      It looks nothing like Halo. PLEASE leave me a logical argument as to why you say the things you do. THIS is Halo:

      http://videogamecritic.com/images/360/halo_3.jpg

      THIS is Advanced Warfare:

      http://cdn.gottabemobile.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Call-of-Duty-Advanced-Warfare-Features-2.jpeg

      So, how can it be copying Halo, when it has no aliens? How is it copying Halo,when the soldiers and mechanics of the game are entirely different? How is it Halo, when the lore is entirely different?

      • jordanxbrookes

        Aah! IGN back then, when it wasn’t full of idiots and negativity.

        • TheShadowReaper

          there were times that IGN was like that? i sure dont remember that. there were always complete morons from the day they started. they were just morons in disguise back then.

  • jordanxbrookes

    If it was 900p at the time, maybe it could reach 1080p before the final game is shipped? Still 900p is better than 720p, although I play on a 19″ TV so it might not make such a difference. I am hoping it will still maintain 60FPS, since that was one of the main trades that distinguished Call of Duty from any other FPS.

    • Grenada!

      Just waiting for the PC gamers to come in and say that you can notice the difference between 900p and 1080p on a huge TV. Even though most gamers and PC gamers play on smaller monitors that you wouldn’t notice the difference with.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Lol.

      • TheShadowReaper

        uhh…PC gamer over here. yes you do realize the difference. i play on a 21″ TV/Monitor. anything less than 1080p is obvious to the eye. you wont die playing on lower resolution though.

  • MuscledRMH

    It is an alpha build which means the performance is always less and I am sure the retail game will run locked 60 fps.

    This alpha build was also created before the Xbox One june update and SDK update which means they now have extra performance available. Destiny for example will run 1080p on Xbox One thanks to the SDK update which makes it very likely Sledgehammer will make Advanced Warfare locked 60fps and 1080p on Xbox One.

    I have no worries

    • kyr95

      Again, someone with logical thought 🙂

      • MuscledRMH

        Ofcourse. The June SDK allowed Bungie to make their game 1080p on Xbox One. I think SHGames will make the game stable 60fps for sure and maybe 1080p or atleast 900p.

        I think it will be locked 60fps/1080p all thanks to the 10% extra GPU Microsoft made available to devs.

        • kyr95

          Indeed. After all the demo at E3 is first of all an alpha build and as @disqus_Z4fVJP51rh:disqus mentioned bellow, its being presented through a vertical slide. We absolutely cannot expect the game to look the same 6 months before release. And yes, SHG’s initial task was to get 900p or above with 60fps, now with the June SDK it might be possible to reach 1080p 60fps.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            The game should actually be in beta stage, of course they could have used alpha footage. However, last time I checked, the E3 demo was live. Hopefully the game is 1080p on PS4.

          • kyr95

            The debate as to whereas its 900p or 1080p with 60fps concerns the xbox. its alomst certain it will be 1080p 60fps on ps4.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It’s implied, but not factual as of right now.

          • kyr95

            Well as far its 60fps its good enough for me 😀

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Yeah, I’m hoping I don’t get frame rate fuck ups like Ghosts does. I hope they optimize the game correctly for PS4.

          • kyr95

            Have faith in SHG, comrade! 😉

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I will, but they worked closely with Microsoft, so Xbox One will have more benefits, I predict. And it’ll piss me off. :/

          • XLKILLA

            With frame rate issues. All ps4 games have frame rate issues cause they would rather there games be 1080p. I’ll take 720p or 900p with no frame rate issues any day over 1080p.

          • 111AlaN111

            Its said that the PS4 is 1080p, but has some issues. I think that it will be or:

            900p 60fps on PS4 or 1080p 30fps on PS4.

          • Elvis

            Betas are usually a month or two before release so I think it’s probably just alpha still

        • Ed

          i seriously doubt it will be 1080p/60fps for x1. not being a naysayer… just rational. it will be 900p/60fps. if it is 1080p for x1, then it won’t be 60fps, and we know where cod stands when it comes to fps. 60 is their target.

          • MuscledRMH

            Well the June SDK update on Xbox One does give devs a lot of extra room, it allowed Bungie to make Destiny 1080p. But the game will run for sure 900p/60fps(without the drops) on Xbox One and if we are lucky it will be 1080p and a strong/locked 60fps

          • TheShadowReaper

            it doesnt matter how many updates you do to a software. if the hardware cant handle it in the first place, 900p is probably what XB1 is going to get.

          • Barack Jafar

            10% of the hardware was set aside for Xbox One for the Kinect. Microsoft now allows developers to access that 10% of RAM to use how they bloody please!

          • TheShadowReaper

            a little piece of RAM wont do the cut. you need more processing power. and that comes from the GPU when we talk about games. it will definitely help, but not as much as you’d think.

          • Mike

            The GPU was the part that was freed up… that guy was confused when he said RAM.

          • Mike

            You completely ignored all the facts. Not worth talking to.

          • TheShadowReaper

            that’s you, not me. i’m the one taking everything into consideration. you on the other hand, do not. yeah, you’re right. you’re not worth my time.

          • Jack Meoff

            Yea keep thinking updates will give u true 1080p

          • XLKILLA

            I’ll take FPS over 1080p any day.

          • Jimi Hendrix

            We don’t need to think about it, it already happened! Developers can use that RAM to improve graphics. So yea keep thinking you’re so smart. Your mom jacked meoff

          • Get off Sony’s dick and actually read into what the update did.It allowed developers to disable some of Kinect, this frees up the gpu to run the game better in short. The funny thing is that if the game is the same quality on both consoles then it will look better on XB1. The color will be better due to the game being made for Xbox then ported to PS.

          • beasley

            are you stupid or do you know nothing about technology. a game is first made through coding then dumbed down so it can run on console. the playstation gpu runs on dedicated gddr5 memory where as the xb1 uses shared ddr3 memory with its processor. i have played on both consoles so you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. also as an engineer the reason the kinnect takes up 10% of the power isnt because of the gpu it would most likely be the power supply or the processor. freeing up this power would potentially give the gpu a slight boost but 10 percent is highly overrated at best. i would say 5 percent at best

            if you dont believe me look at destiny’s stats.

          • Mike

            There are other 1080p/60 games on Xbox One so I don’t see why it won’t happen.

    • TheShadowReaper

      pretty much my thought. its an alpha build so…who cares. COD and 60 fps is synonymous on console marketing and stuff. there’s not chance in hell this game is going to ship less than 60 fps on consoles, 1080p or not.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        It’s not alpha, alpha implies early stages of development, I’m pretty sure it’s in beta stage.

        • TheShadowReaper

          true.

          edit: nope, its alpha. Keshav gave us a heads up.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It’s different because it’s been a 3-year development cycle.

        • 111AlaN111

          Look at Destiny. It’s still in Alpha, and it will be at stores in September.

          COD is out on October, so it being on Alpha stage is ok.

    • Ed

      destiny was able to hit that 1080p mark because they were only going for 30fps. different games. different developers. only time will tell.

      • Mike

        Yeah but BF Hardline is going to be 1080/60 on X1.

    • ahmedt361

      I think this is only for the campaign only but I am no expert

    • michael condrey

      Frame Rate is Sledgehammer’s upmost priority. Call of Duty is focused first on a smooth reactive title, then improving the graphical overhaul from the last title Modern Warfare 3. I assure you the Advance Warfare title will run at 1080p and 60 FPS on both next generation consoles and PC platforms.

    • Abraham

      Destiny will be 30 fps, 1080p on X1. That’s not an example of extra performance. Its natural to see frame rate drops in action sequences and overly cinematic single player gameplay.

    • Bungee is making the game run the same fps and resolution on current gen as the last gen. I find it stupid as they should make Destiny run as good as possible on XBO and PS4 but people dont always think I guess. :/ They said they wanted everyone to have the same experience. Really? Then why buy a new console?

    • beasley

      ghosts on console was not locked at 60 fps, it dips to sub 30’s on occasion on console.we used a frame capture software and especially when someone throws smoke it dips to 25 fps on ps4. so with that being said i dont know how they will lock 60 on xb1 considering it has the equivalent of a 7790 with shared memory with its jaguar processor. the ps4 has the step up with the eqivalent of a 7850 with dedicated memory for the gpu running at gddr5. so tell me again how they will pull this off?

  • BrandonTr

    Idk if im gonna buy AW. The more cod games that come out the mp gets way worse. I honestly cant stand ghosts (except for extinction). BO2 had too much lag, MW3 was the worst IMO. MW2 and MW1 were the earliest cod game i played and i loved those games. Now because theres so many, camping,riot shielding, and quick scoping became like tradition. Even on PS4 people are hacking ghosts. My whole team was frozen everytime one enemy ran by them and guess what,our teammates couldnt do nothing but just get killed. Its aggrivating how some cod players play. If each cod that comes out continously has these problems then why bother buying another one just to go through the same thing?

    • kyr95

      Well you should wait for the game to be released and make your decision after youve heard opinions from the majority of the fans ( not reviews or haters ), if you hear mostly good stuff then you can buy it 🙂

      • BrandonTr

        That’s what my plan is. My main concern isnt mp in aw because imo i feel its going to be good,but the players are gonna find ways to cheat,like idk getting their exosuit stuck on a wall then thats how they camp “in the future”. But honestly my main concern is what the third mode is going to be 😮

        • kyr95

          The third mode is indeed troubling me too ;O. Tbh, im afraid that AW will be such an amazing game but will be ruined by some players in the community. Wouldnt that be a shame after all the hard work SHG has been on? :/

          • Guywithbrains

            The community is making these games bad. Noobs just camp in corners and wait for their enemies come to them. You don’t want to know how many times some camper has stopped my killing spree. You know, like one kill away from AC-130?

            Btw, I think that it has something to do with robots or then it will be co-op, which would be the coolest thing. Loved playing MW2 and MW3 co-op missions. 😉

          • kyr95

            Am i the only one who wants co-op missions like spec ops to return? But maybe something different like being in charge of ATLAS sending specific troops in different missions in the world with customised loadouts and you controll them. 😀

          • Guywithbrains

            I think that MW2 had best co-op missions. I can’t remember any bad mission from MW2 co-op. I remember that stealth mission in some snowy place. I had to snipe wih M21 EBR silenced and had to make sure that I will not be seen… which was really hard sometimes.

            And are you talking about special missions like BO2 had? You controlled squads and so on?

          • kyr95

            Well something like that but more complicated. Im just making assumptions here! haha
            And yeah that snowy mission-god was it difficult in Veteran.

          • BrandonTr

            I honestly loved MW2 and i have a ps4 so i miss MW2 even more cuz i know i dont have it. MW2 had a favela-like feeling that no other cod game has. Most of them are like darker now. More focused on emotion rather than environmental feeling.

          • Guywithbrains

            MW2 maps like Favela, Highrise, Afghan and Terminal were the coolest maps in Call of Duty history. Also Estate was pretty cool.

            Yeah I have PS4 too and it would be nice to have Modern Warfare 2 remake and you could update your last gen version for cheap price. Although nowadays gamers can only wish for cheap prices. 😀

          • BrandonTr

            Thats what my heart was set on. An MW2 remake. They shouldve remade MW1,2,and BOPS for the 10th cod anniversary game but no just Ghosts 🙁

          • Guywithbrains

            Maybe we get one after 10 years… 10 years anniversary edition anyone? Like Halo did? 😀

          • kyr95

          • BrandonTr

            One thing they need in AW is violence. Like WAW had gore and that was crazy. Now its like (knifed, a cup of orange juice falls out of knifed man)

          • kyr95

            We did see Mitchell’s arm come off 😛

          • BrandonTr

            Yeah i did see that and it looked kinda BOPS Zombie graphics on it. I think they want gore in it but because of Activision they have to lower it down

          • Guywithbrains

            But how about children? How can game developers show that kind of violence to children?! Nowadays parents… there isn’t mature rating for nothing. ;D

            Lol yeah. I mean if i game is rated M a little kid knows theyre not supposed to play it but now parents are happy to give their kids an AO rated video game. Im not against squeakers on cod, ive known alot of little kids that do wayy better than me..but the game is still rated M not E.

          • kyr95

            Yeah…still its the parents’s fault

          • Guywithbrains

            Buying mature games for children is the easiest way to keep children’s mouth shut. Also these games do the rising job for the parents. 🙂

          • BrandonTr

            Yeah it is. I mean there a bunch of 8-10 year olds smoking ,doing drugs and alcohol right in my neighborhood i see then all the time….and its rediculous

          • kyr95

            Oh dear :/

          • BrandonTr

            Guys i gotta question. So i said how i was making this movie. And i need some feedback or recommendations on what i should do. Heres the list of areas in each mission. 1) New York City, 2)Maine, 3)Maine(capturing someone), 4)Russia, 5) Los Angeles GG Bridge and 6) Washington White House. Its set in 2021. Idk if its enough info but if you guys have any future tech or story ideas let me know! If you dont thats alright 🙂 (im not here to promote anything i just need some help onn ideas)

          • Guywithbrains

            Oh and don’t forget having sex with each other… you know that teenagers think that it is embarrassing to have virginity if you are 18 years old… just saying. That is sad though…

          • BrandonTr

            That is true, ive seen 14 y.o. pregnant girls at my school before ,its just stupid

          • kyr95

            Well who knows maybe the new meele system is more gory
            hehehehehehe….MUHAHAHAHAHHA.

          • Guywithbrains

            That super jump-kick from ending of reveal trailer… now I could kick campers off from the corners with that ability. 😀

          • kyr95

            And according to Glen they get thrown 20 feet away…..I want to do that every day <3

          • Guywithbrains

            Flying camper bodies… sold!

          • Guywithbrains

            Now imagine getting headshot… that would be awesome!

          • BrandonTr

            Thatd be awesome. Except if im playing then the guy next to me gets headshot(ed?) and the blood from him goes on my view then i cant see then get shot. So lets hope they add gore but no go hard as ever on the logic of it lol

          • BrandonTr

            That would be awesome

          • BrandonTr

            Yeah i feel the same. Like years ago i loved cod. I even made movies off it. Im actually making another one that ive been working on for 2 years going on 3. I just got 3d modeling so im gonna put like future tanks and stuff in it. This is the third and final film on cod im doing though cuz 1. its tim consuming making a 90 min film and 2. i kinda lost the joy for cod :/

          • kyr95

            I do have a feeling that AW will be the “very fun” cod that we need, i dont know why, it justs feels like it.

          • Guywithbrains

            You know that because you are more hyped than never before – atleast me, haha! 😀

          • kyr95

            Honestly? Havent been this intrigued since cod4 and thats saying something.

          • Guywithbrains

            And after I checked that new information about Aftermath mission, which was in the Gameinformer magazine back in June… that mission sounds really awesome! 😀

          • kyr95

            Their Dead Space experience has really effected the pacing of the campaign…in a very impressive way! 😉

          • Guywithbrains

            Yeah… you can find that new information about Aftermath mission by going to that article in Call of Duty wiki and then click the links below that article… the links contain two pictures from the magazine, which tells about that mission. 😉

          • kyr95

            Yep 😉

          • BrandonTr

            Link pls? 😮

          • Guywithbrains
          • BrandonTr

            Thanks

          • BrandonTr

            I feel the same. By the look of campaign it kinda looks slow but its still in development so im positive theyre still doing what they can. Sledgehammer looks after the fans too (so far). I watched some videos and they see what the players want. I just hope they can find a way to prevent quick scoping and camping. (I enjoy quickscoping but not when im the one with an assault rifle getting hitmarkers then a guy one shots me with a sniper) lol

          • kyr95

            Agreed! So far im really impressed mostly at how much SHG pays attention to the fans!

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            That’s how most COD games go. Good games ruined by bad players.

          • kyr95

            Yeah :/

    • Guest

      Just the fact that they’re on a three year cycle now makes me pretty interested, I mean just think about Treyarch’s next game, look what they’ve done with two year cycles look at the improvement from World at War to Black Ops and then Black Ops to Black Ops 2 now they’ve got 3 years and next gen consoles.

      • TheShadowReaper

        ^ this

  • Ryumoau

    I just hope the ps4 version will not run into any framerate issues. It should have enough power to handle both the visuals and performance.

    • kyr95

      Its an alpha build remember 😉 And they already said that the xbox one will be 900p but now with the June XDK it might reach 1080p there too 😉

      • Guywithbrains

        Framerate > resolution

        • kyr95

          thats shg primary goal, so no need to worry 😉

    • seb

      if the xbox version runs fine, the ps4 will run even better, so dont worry.

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    The game is not in alpha stage. Alpha stage means early development. The game is in late development, so it is in beta stage.

    • Keshav Bhat

      Destiny launches in September, and it just hit Beta stage. Normally CoDs hit beta in August time frame.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        This could be different, because it took 3 years to make.

        • Keshav he does have a point!

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Probably does, I’m not too familiar with which stages of development are which. Oh well, I was close lol. Just a month difference.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Actually, it might be in code freeze stage. “Code freeze is the stage when new code is no longer added to the game and only bugs are being corrected. Code freeze occurs three to four months before code release”.

        • Xecho

          Can I have more terms please?

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            -Alpha
            -Code Freeze
            -Beta
            -Code Release
            -Gold Master
            -Crunch Time
            -Post-production
            -Maintenance

            etc.

      • Ryumoau

        maybe theres still hope for an open beta of this game. Hopefully they were just waiting till after the official multiplayer reveal to announce it. 🙂

  • Guest

    That was because of the youtube video. Watch the real video here and notice the difference.

    2 months ago: “Advanced Warfare is still deep in development and could see substantial changes before it is released – though for a game like COD where a sustained 60fps is so important, we would hope for solid frame-rates taking priority over resolution increases. “~from a charlieintel article. SO the most logical result would be propably a 900p version on xbox one so that it can mantain 60fps instead of the 1080p that theyre aiming for. Still no problem with that.

    • TheShadowReaper

      the only thing i hope for is the 3rd mode. (actually 4th mode if they include bots like IW did in Ghosts) i really wish for a dino mode. i know many people on the BF forums have been asking for that in a BF game but since DICE and EA arent up for it…lets hope SHG is. even if it isnt dino mode, i just hope its something wild.

      • kyr95

        I really want to see something similar like spec ops but with 4 players, i had so much fun playing that with friends.

        • TheShadowReaper

          can we leave spec ops to IW? i’m kinda bored of it. 😛

          • kyr95

            haha yeah maybe youre right, still i want a game mode like that- where co-op really matered and was very fun. Doesnt have to be the same thing 🙂

          • TheShadowReaper

            i guess they could make more game modes. what do i mean by that?

            1) Single Player Campaign
            2) Multi Player Mode
            3) the surprise mode (Zombies, Extinction, hopefully Dinos etc..)
            4) Campaign co-op mode

            and now that they have 3 years to make the game, i believe this much content is possible. who knows, maybe SHG is a step ahead of me and all of us.

          • kyr95

            Maybe 😉

          • Xecho

            Everyone knows Dinos aren’t happening.

          • TheShadowReaper

            i’ll stop believing after we have info on that 3rd mode of AW. until then its my right to dream about it.

          • Xecho

            Whatever

      • Bigi345

        Dino mode? *Gets popcorn in prep for more hate via blaming copying BF even though BF haven’t made a Dino mode*

        • TheShadowReaper

          yeah exactly. if that happens the BF fans will be screaming “copy” even though the dino mode isnt even a concept over there at DICE. i’ll need some popcorn too! ^^

  • Jack Meoff

    I love all the fools who have xbox are like yea we will just get a update to fix it hahahahaha worst system pay 400 500 can not even run TRUE 1080P

    • TheShadowReaper

      get ready for an Xbot shit storm. these guys will hate on you for your comment.

    • The difference between 900p and 1080p is so hard to see there in no point in bothering about it!

      • Nettrick Nowan

        You mean that it’s hard for YOU to see, right?

    • Mike

      Is this kid serious?

  • Glen Schofield

    Just when I thought this was the best cod ever, frame rate issues and 900p NOT 1080p and it should be 360 fps* hehe

  • tobi xw

    We wouldn’t have this fucking problem if this game was built on ps4…but noooooo let’s put it once again on shitbox…..same shit box over and over and over and over again. .sound similar. ..God fucking putt it on ps4 so cod can stop being shit every year..oh and shitbox fans [email protected]!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Kill Denied

      Pathetic

      • tobi xw

        I’m pathetic…and your pic is the fuckin hulk. ..OK I agree..

    • F**K you America

      At least you now know how pc users feel about ps4 users.

      • Xecho

        The true gaming platform are consoles originally. And will forever be in my book.

      • tobi xw

        Yea but we can all agree shitbox sucks….

    • I play on all platforms, but let’s say I was a fanboy and i told you this.

      “We wouldn’t have this problem is this game was built on PC!!! But NOOOOOOO, let’s make the game again on s**tty consoles for kids over and over again because broke daddy can’t afford an awesome rig!! Put COD on PC only so it can stop being s**t every year!! Console peasants, come at me!!!!”

      Nobody would like that–not even you. Therefore, stop being an asshat.

      • tobi xw

        I would agree….just not on shitbox….bro pc is obviously more powerfull….

        • I know PC is technically more powerful, but I don’t mock others because they choose console gaming. How would you feel if I called you a PS4 fanboy peasant because you didn’t go PC like a true member of the master race? You wouldn’t like it, right? That’s how others feel when you call the Xbox One the “s**tbox”.

          And besides–the PS4 and Xbox One barely have any differences between them. Also, when it comes to a good gaming platform, it’s not always about hardware specs–it’s about the games. With that being said, a proper analysis of both consoles cannot be determined since they haven’t been released for a whole year yet.

          • tobi xw

            Wht this is going to boil down to is the ps4 is better than the xbox..and the pc rules asfar as hardware goes….now I understand what your saying….but when it comes down to pc gaming no one gives a fuck….pc gaming is for neards….2014-2024 the years of the ps4…..OK then by

  • call of duty advanced warfare will still look better and smother on the ps4 as with how call of duty ghosts was smother image on ps4

  • Ogawa

    I really don’t see a difference

  • Datignantmofo

    I thought frame rates and resolution wasnt a big issue.. Why all of a sudden its a hot topic since the update? Because yall really were butt hurt over it and now it shows.
