In an interview with the Official Xbox Magazine (OXM), Sledgehammer Games discussed a few details surrounding Advanced Warfare’s Multiplayer.

Advanced Warfare MP introduces lots of new features and innovations that we’ve never seen before in a Call of Duty title, ranging from new classes of weapons, to new player movements.

“We’ve got heavy weapons, which is sort of another new class, verticality through the boost jump – you can imagine what that does to the multiplayer experience,” said Condrey. “And then cloak, super-strength, and then off-the-controller changes, like the exo-boost and the exo-slide.

“We’ve got a really great combo now with the boost jump and then a lethal slam from above,” he went on. “We feel like it’s a pretty fundamental change to the second-to-second combat, as well as the broader linear experience that you see in campaign.”

“The shotgun is a close quarters weapon. A short ranged, broad angle weapon like the shotgun is pretty ineffective against a player who can boost out of the way really quickly, right? So there are a lot of really interesting and unique challenges and opportunities, and I think when we talk about MP in more detail you’ll get to see that, but the variety that the new controls and the exo bring to gameplay is pretty revolutionary.”

SHGames realizes that they’re certain aspects of Call of Duty that people always want to see, and not break or discard the most popular aspects.

“We know that there are some fundamental things we have to do with Call of Duty,” observed Schofield. “There are a bunch of weapons that people will always gravitate to, so we have to bring those forward into the future.

“What we do is we look at an AK47, and in 50 years it hasn’t changed a heck of a lot, so for a future version, we’ve changed it as much as you would in 50 years. Others we’ve looked at, and they’ve just changed fundamentally in those 50 years, so we’ve made those adjustments as well – we’ve said ‘OK, that’s changed a lot’.”

          I’m from Finland and its 18:29 here -.-

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Yeah, tell me about it. Just woke up, it’s 9 AM here.

        • 9:00 AM? Are you in Nevada/California? or somewhere in West Canada?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Well I live in Nevada, but all my family is in Cali, so I’m currently visiting for a few weeks. Either way, same time zone. πŸ˜›

          • Ahh okay. I used to live in Vegas, but I’m now in Texas. I know that its a two hour difference soo…Math.

        • CGkillZ

          Shit I know 954 in cali. Is there supposed to be something happening today?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yes, they said they had some sort of surprise for us today. I expect it’ll be within the next few hours, latest 5 PM PST.

          • CGkillZ

            Oh okay thanks. It should be some mp teaser. I just hope none of these things like jumping and cloaking are overpowered of they are aw is probably done like ghosts. Cods be in going downhill which sucks. But hopefully they bring it back. I think halo will make a comeback tho.

        • Blight221

          Yeah, well what about us on the other side of the world up till midnight refreshing the page ;_;

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Lol yeah, that sucks.

    • I was too lol

    • Myke Fletcher

      It’s only 8:30 AM in California. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have a few more hours to wait.

      Robert Bowling gets announced as the new Community Manager for SH, with a pic of him in last stand wearing an “Exoskeleton suit”…

      • kyr95

        Take my money!!!

        • ccrows

          ^ LMAO!… XD

      • TheShadowReaper

        wait what you say now? i hope its true or i will find you…and i will kill you!

        • Wait. I’m confused, what is good about that? Last stand is bad… Right?

          • ccrows

            Watch this video if you haven’t yet.

            RB tells everyone there’s no BS coming in MW3 (and even says F*ck you last stand) yet “Final Stand” is in the game.

            That “Bowling Moment” went viral for a while a couple of years back.

            & yes last stand was a bad thing… πŸ˜‰

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrFE60imi8s

          • Ahh okay.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I like Robert Bowling, technically Last Stand wasn’t in the game, so he wasn’t a liar :3

          • ccrows

            I agree, I liked RB too.

            I mean you gotta give him credit for fighting for free retro maps on his way out. (which is why we got Terminal for free in MW3)

            That fight on his way out is when the community finally made peace with him… πŸ™‚

          • Dr. Salim

            IW Logic: We want the community to play our game so lets tell them that last stand is gone then surprise them with final stand.

          • TheShadowReaper

            actually i like Robert. its not his fault that the developers of IW fucked everything up in MW3. yet he got all the blame and anger of every fucking Xbox screamer kid.

          • Grenada!

            Yeah, I liked Robert aswell and then you got the kids that believed that he, Robert Bowling created MW2 and MW3 all by himself. These kids need to get some education.

        • ccrows

          ^ lol… πŸ™‚

      • Grenada!

        No. He will be dressed as a stealth clown and then you will be able to buy the micro-transaction DLC that will change your characters skin. Robert Bowling and Robert Bowling Stealth Clown edition.

    • Keshav Bhat

      it’s still coming, stay tuned

  • So… Cloaking is in MP? I’m sure it’ll be balanced I just hope it isn’t very effective.
    Anyways the rest of this sounds good!

    • kyr95

      Indeed, if balanced it can be great, though i cant really tell if hes saying that it is in mp.

      • Same here πŸ™‚

        • kyr95

          All these announcements concerning multiplayer this week…could this mean the surprise is about mp? :O

          • Possibly, However I think it’s more likely that we will be getting that Vice documentary on PMCs. We could get some MP info with that though!

          • kyr95

            Hmm or a single player trailer with a MP tease at the end, perhaps?

          • Anything is possible during #HammerWeek! Lol

          • kyr95

            With Condrey and Schofield in charge, you can say that again! πŸ˜›

    • Yevgenij Pekurovskyy

      There is cloacking in titanfall and battlefield 2142, you can still see people when they are close to you

      • TheShadowReaper

        yeah and on top of that COD always has been mainly about CQC so…i think it will be fine.

  • Josh

    Cloak confirmed for multiplayer?!! It will be interesting how they implement it, although I don’t think it is a realistic possibility in the next 50 year, but I guess it could be fun!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      It’ll be overpowered. But I hope there’s a perk or something else to combat it, and hopefully they’re not completely invisible.

      • kyr95

        From the cloaking glimpse we saw in one of the bts videos it doesnt look you ll be that invisible.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          I’ll have to look at it again, you can see Gideon cloaked, so we can make an opinion based on that.

          • kyr95

            Yeah, youre right, i mean he didnt looked that invincible πŸ™‚

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            He didn’t, in all honesty, it looks a lot like Halo cloaking. Cloaking has rarely been gotten right, but in Halo, it’s pretty balanced.

          • kyr95

            That can be a good thing…right? πŸ˜›

  • Dominic McCall

    Told everybody it’s going to be a competitive version of Destiny

    β€œWe’ve got a really great combo now with the boost jump and then a lethal slam from above,”

    Couldn’t you do that in Crysis?

  • Guywithbrains

    We are even closer to MP reveal. Make it happen today!

    • kyr95

      Dont be dissapointed if its a SP trailer, or a MP tease πŸ˜›

      • Guywithbrains

        Both are good for me πŸ˜€

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    Cloaking? The multiplayer sounds good, but that is NOT balanced, and it WILL be a problem, you should get to that immediately, Sledgehammer. Let it be countered. But damn, this is sick.

    • kyr95

      Theyve been polishing and trying to make the game as balanced as possible since they finished the game months ago, have trust πŸ˜‰
      And yeah it does sound sick ! πŸ˜€

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        I wouldn’t mind it, as long as it’s balanced, this could be the first game in existence to have cloaking done right, you’ll never know until next month.

        • kyr95

          Stop…hyping me… sillibk, you above all! πŸ˜€

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I’m trying not to XD

            Yeah right! xD

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It’s not my intention xD

          • kyr95

            Haha come on youve even put Cormack in your profile pic just for that! xD

          • TheShadowReaper

            lol, yes he did!

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            He’s a black character, gotta represent.

          • kyr95

            Excuses, excuses.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            IKR I was just messing around XD

          • kyr95

            Hahaha i know xD

          • TheShadowReaper

            huh, he’s black…and your point? i really didnt get it.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I’m kidding xD

          • TheShadowReaper

            k! =)

    • Alexander Thomas

      yes it could be op but they could have made it such as you can only use it for a certain amount of time or even only when crouched

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        You can use it while standing up, this was apparent in SP footage. However, they are not completely invisible, and their outline shows, like on Halo and Titanfall.

        • kyr95

          Well who says it works the same way as in SP? πŸ˜‰

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I think because of the fact that multiplayer features ARE dumbed down in multiplayer in past iterations, however, some features are the exact same, such as sliding and leaning on Ghosts.

          • kyr95

            Could be youre right, but who knows right? πŸ™‚

        • Alexander Thomas

          oh ok, i hope it doesn’t make it too op that way though

    • TheShadowReaper

      how do you know? have you played the game?

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        I’ve played multiple SCI-FI shooters with cloaking involved. They are always slightly too invisible, and cloaking has never been gotten right.

        • TheShadowReaper

          i want to see it first. we cant base what AW will do on what Halo and Crysis have done. i’m sure they have found something to make it cool and balanced at the same time. but as i said, lets wait for the reveal.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Well, Halo’s cloaking is pretty balanced, so that’s one contradiction to my statement. I think that they could revolutionize the way that cloaking works, and make it a balanced experience overall.

          • TheShadowReaper

            dont forget, they at last work on XboxOne and PS4 tech. this could help for better outlining of the cloaking. i wont even comment on Crysis, ofc its cloaking is really good. it has been developed on the most recent PC tech of the time it was developed.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I’m crossing my fingers in anticipation. I think Crysis has unbalanced cloaking, as it is a common feature that players exploit.

  • Codjunkie

    I think the surprise is the beta of advanced warefare or multiplayer reveal

  • TheShadowReaper

    i dont want to be a stick in the mud but, didnt we hear the same things with Ghosts? dont get me wrong, i’m way too excited for the game right now tbh but…uhh. i dont know. its not IW this time, its Sledgehammer but we’ve heard this shit before!

    • kyr95

      Im not sure if Ghosts was considered revolutionary before release.
      Hell, i havent heard a call of duty being called revolutionary since mw2.
      And yeah, this SHG baby!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      We have every right to be skeptical, since this is what CoD devs have been doing for the past 11-12 years. These guys are new, though, so I’m enlightened to see multiplayer even MORE now, and the fact that they show information THIS early makes me happy.

      • kyr95

        To be honest, exo suits in MP is indeed revolutionary. No such change has been done in a cod before-i think πŸ˜›

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Definitely. The fact that they changed the mechanics of the game, is enough to buy this game alone. CoD haters should be on their feet.

          • kyr95

            That alone made BF Hardline to move date, which i hope turns out to be a good thing.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            BF will be decimated as always.

          • TheShadowReaper

            yeah i wonder though. will they do anything worth nothing of? i mean, a few months of development arent going to help them much. unless they take a different approach like they did back in the day with BF 2142. which was an amazing game.

          • kyr95

            Bf 4 was an expansion of bf3 to me, bf hardline is an expansion of bf4 to me :/
            I hope it turns out to be a good game.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I’m not hoping. It’s too much of an expansion.

          • TheShadowReaper

            and unfortunately you are right…what happened to the time where nobody in the FPS tried to copy COD and instead were doing their own damn thing. i miss these times.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It’s because CoD is decimating the market. It’s the most popular FPS of all time. CoD 4 revolutionized the genre. Game developers want to emulate CoD’s success, and they fail epically. They can’t appeal to CoD fans, because the games are NOT CoD.

          • TheShadowReaper

            my thoughts exactly.

      • TheShadowReaper

        yeah, i’m surprised too to see info on MP so early.

        • LegitCryptic

          its only about two weeks earlier than usual

  • Steve

    How is exo-boost an “off the controller change?” Can someone explain that to me?

    • Batman

      You start running, them the boost auto-kicks in

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    The AK-47 and AK-74, as Schofield said, are definitely in the game, but a little more futuristic.

    • kyr95

      Gotta love some futuristic AK πŸ™‚

    • Steve

      I’ve seen a futuristic Tommy gun in this game too somewhere.

  • LovekillerX

    Good to have some old weapons back in the game but new weapons are also welcome. I think that we can get some information about multiplayer soon as they said in the text. But what the surprise is? And when it will be revealed? πŸ™

    • kyr95

      Id say in about 5-6 hours πŸ™

      • LovekillerX

        In my country it is almost evening. Here everything comes so “late.” πŸ™

            Shhhhhhh.

          • LovekillerX

            Oh by the way do you know if there is some information about the season pass?

          • kyr95

            Nope D:

          • LovekillerX

            Okay thanks anyway.

          • kyr95

            If i learn anything ill let you all know πŸ˜€

          • LovekillerX

            Good and same here! πŸ™‚

  • jordanxbrookes

    On the Call of Duty Wikia, it says that Avtomat Kalashnikova weapon is an AK-74, not an AK-47, but either way, an AK weapon is a ‘YES!’ from me. Also does that mean cloaking is in multiplayer? A little bit shocked, but as long as it’s balanced, I think I’ll live.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      It could be both. And cloaking could be revolutionized, scroll down to my other comments.

      • jordanxbrookes

        The one thing that I’ve always wanted in Call of Duty is ‘Family Weapons’, that way I get to use different AK variants or both the Bushmaster ACR and the Remington ACR, that would be cool.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Probably won’t see that in this game, but you’ll never know.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I know, I mean if the weapons are going to be based off of real-life weaponry, then they can do futuristic versions of the ‘Family Weapons’, sure it may just look or feel the same, maybe add in some different stats and features, I don’t know, I think it would be a cool idea though.

          • daniel

            They could add in that as custimisation. In saints row 4 you could change your rifle from a m16 to a m249 SAW for example but they kept the same stats. They could add in a create a gun option changing the variant of your gun or just changing the stock or barrel but not affecting performance

      • Spodermen

          • ccrows

      • Dylan

        I can’t even say it once if I tried

    • Steve

      Personally, I hope it works so that if you are stationary with the cloak on(camping), then static occasionally “shocks” your cloak and exposes you to those with a keen eye.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Or, you have to always be moving to stay cloaked.

        • IMO that’s just as bad as only being cloaked while still. When shot at, people could just run around and the shooter would have no idea where they went! Then they would get backstabbed from behind. I don’t think the should make it have anything to do with if you are moving or not. I have commented this many times before, but I think that if cloaking is in multiplayer, it should be a tactical thing. Y’know, like where your concussion grenades go? It should be a one time use, like any other tactical grenade, and last about 5 seconds. This would hopefully help reduce camping and such. Imagine, coming around a corner where you know there is a camper, going Invisible and dashing towards him, just to get behind him and shoot him in the head! *Sorry for the Novel, but hopefully it was worth reading*

          • TheShadowReaper

            i have given my ideas on cloaking in the past and what i had in mind about it is: that cloaking should be a perk with a timer. running keeps you cloaked. if you shoot you lose your cloak. if you shoot with a silencer only your weapon loses the cloak. if you stop moving for 3 seconds you lose your cloak. (no camping). if you start moving again the cloak comes back into use after 3 seconds.

            how about that?

          • But the backstabs man. Maybe when cloaked, you can use your knife? because that is mainly what concerns me when people suggest only cloak while moving. Plus, Y’know how weird that would be if there is just a floating silenced gun? Lol, I can just see the Christmas Noob trolling Montages by kir speddy already!

          • jordanxbrookes

            1 punch kill from behind, 2 punch kill from the front.

          • What? I don’t understand?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Exo-suits mean we know have a super punch instead of a knife. I hope we can find some hilarious corpse launch for final kill cams with this, that would be awesome.

          • Ohh, I forgot about that! I’m laughing already, thinking of the corpse launch mod for MW2 (I think, not sure).

          • jordanxbrookes

            Imagine having the Mortal Kombat X-Ray blows or the X-Ray mode like in Sniper Elite for final killcams, I’ll be down for that.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It’ll probably be a kick. Or both. Melee might be souped up a lot.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            If that’s true, I’d go for a melee final killcam everytime, lol.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            You can slam like on Crysis 3.

          • remco

            Yea good idea

          • Carrisi

            Just the cloak perk from titanfall will be fine

        • Godly

          They could make it like halo aswell, where when you see someone cloaked they are kind of “blurry” (if you’ve played halo and seen someone with camo you know what I mean).

      • HenryDF

        I don’t see any issue with the cloak acting normally, as in Titanfall. A lot of CoD players are paranoid and scared of stuff being OP, but it’ll be fine if it’s normal.

        As long as they were to have it like the Predator and the cloaking in Titanfall with the blurriness, it’ll be fine. It was fine in Titanfall.

        • ccrows

          I love COD and all, but this is the COD community that we are talking about.

          ^ They will find a way to abuse it…

        • Black

          As long as I can un-cloak players with emp grenades spam, I’m fine. =D

          • Mario BΓ©langer

            New hability to detect heat?
            For MP i think “Cloak” can only be good to defuse a bomb. -no wapons fire in sequence, maybe the boost jump physical attack?

      • RandomGuyPassingBy

        Have you ever played taem fortress 2 ? if so then you know the spy, cloaking could work like that.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        EMPs will be the primary tactical grenade of choice if that’s the case.

      • ThatOneBlazian

        Or it could be like Crysis

      I think it will be included as a sort of 30second kill streak, or maybe a perk that allows you to hide from these sensory grenades and UAV’s like the perk cold blooded from MW2 or ghost from Black ops, but re-imagined so a UAV maybe takes is not a red dot on mini map, as it’s 2054 it is like a night owl from Ghosts but tracks your enemy by following him/her around and this cloaking perk/killstreak makes you slightly translucent to the UAV drone but players can still see you not as much as being completely invisible.

    “And then cloak” I don’t know that has me kind of worried don’t get me wrong I like games where I can go invisible but the CoD community definitely ruin the ability by camping I hope it’s really balanced

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Yep, I know this community, it’s full of kids, but as long as the game forces skill, then it won’t be an issue.

  • ccrows

    A couple of days ago we get an article that ” AW will be β€˜faster and more fluid than any other COD’ & then today we get a title that says that AW will be “pretty revolutionary”.

    Has SH not learned from Respawn that overhyping a game is usually a bad thing?…

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      The difference is, is that SH can actually back it up with content.

      • ccrows

        This is their first COD game on their own.

        They need to actually prove they can back it up first…

        • kyr95

          But if it is true, that this Cod’s MP will be like that, shouldnt they be telling us?

          • ccrows

            Listen I’m a big fan of COD in general and want this game to succeed, but Respawn shoveled us the same overhyped BS, and people were like “well they made MW2, of course it will be good”.

            Like I said, “I want this game to do well” but FFS the hype is way too high right now.

            Let the game speak for itself…

          • kyr95

            I get where youre coming from, so a first game from a new developer need some strong points to convince you πŸ™‚
            We just have to wait and see, you cant deny though that SHG is a great developer as far as listening to the community goes πŸ™‚

          • ccrows

            You know what it’s like this:

            I still play MW3 on and off to this day, and SH worked with IW on the MP for MW3. (Yes we don’t know exactly “‘Who’ was responsible for what in MW3’s MP, but they did work together)

            Anywhoo.. (MW3) Decent game overall, but then there’s the pricks that constantly abuse the SRP/PP by sitting in corners and listening for footsteps, (Y’know footsteps without a perk counter) and forcing everyone else to crouchwalk the rest of the way.

            ^ (and yet SH/IW never fixed that by putting it back to the way things were at launch)

            It’s BS like that that has me worried about the possible gimmicks that SH might throw in the MP, JUST FOR THE SAKE OF INNOVATION, but may end up being just as broken as SRP/PP was in MW3.

            inb4 somebody says there’s no proof that SH did the SRP buff. Yeah I get it, but I’m still concerned.

            inb4 TL;DR… πŸ˜‰

            Well you have all the right, but still give them a chance πŸ˜‰
            Though im not sure either in which sector SHG helped, im pretty sure it had no part in the game other than just ‘helping” IW make the game, and that the mp ideas were all of ravens and iw’s

            Watch the Aug MP will end up being awesome, and then I’ll be bitching about which console to get it on. (360 or buy an XB1 even though most of my friends have a 360)

            I consider myself lucky at only having pc, but at the same time sad that i dont have money to afford consoles and i miss some great games πŸ˜›

          • TheShadowReaper

            its not developed by SHG on the PS3 and Xbox360 so keep that in mind. (meaning that it will be less that half the game graphics wise) but why dont you one up yourselves and buy a PC or if you’re not into PC, why not get a PS4 instead of an XboxOne. XboxOne isnt worth the money. if you’re getting an 8th gen console, get a PS4.

          • MichiganerE

            Did you ever think that some people don’t want a PS4 or PC and want an Xbox One instead?

          • TheShadowReaper

            no, because PS4 does what XboxOne does but better! i dont see how they would like that instead of PS4.

          • MichiganerE

            Maybe because they have a different opinion than you? Maybe because they’d rather play some Xbox One exclusives? Maybe because they have more friends to play with on Xbox One?

          • jordanxbrookes

            I like Xbox One, it means Halo 5: Guardians and more…

          • TheShadowReaper

            that means you like Halo5, not the XboxOne. look Jordan, i know that you have been with Halo probably since the start and that’s why you want to play the 5th. but if it wasnt for Halo, i highly doubt it that people would buy an XboxOne. and imo one single game or franchise, isnt worth it.

          • :)

            I’m keeping my hype for this game kind of low I had high hype for a CoD game and that was Ghosts which shattered it with their crappy game but kept my hype low for Bo2 and loved it so I’m doing it for this game as well.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          And Titanfall was Respawn’s first game. Your point? This is the same occurrence, but with backed up content. At least SH is actually showing footage instead of keeping it under wraps as a mystery. At least CoD actually has content in it to keep you playing.

          • TheShadowReaper

            actually i’ve researched since i’m a FPS guy and i havent found a single FPS military based game that competes with COD that has even half the content that COD has. its really pathetic. the one game that everyone points their fingers at is the one that actually innovates and brings value to our money! its so ironic its stupid!

          • Steve

            Emmm…Battlefield games have double the content of Call of Duty games. Whether you like them or not, that is a fact.

          • TheShadowReaper

            explain and prove it plz. btw, i’m not talking about the number of guns in the game. that’s not content. that’s just models they pushed inside their game.

          • Steve

            Vehicles, bigger maps, a gun physics system that makes bullets affected by velocity, bullet drop, etc..
            Map Destruction, and of course, like 100 weapon camos. Not a BF fanboy, but it is the truth no matter how much I love CoD.

            My dream for Advanced Warfare is to have Dynamic multiplayer maps. And by that I mean, every map has a night and day version, and a version with rain/snow. And in the middle of the match, weather and time can change. That would be epic.

          • kyr95

            For me the single player part of Cod, is equal with atleast half of the content of Bf, but thats my opinion, since ive always loved the campaign of Cod.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Sledgehammer Games hired people for weather dynamics.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I want different times in the maps, so one time it could be in the morning, next time it could be at night, that would be revolutionary in an FPS in my eyes. They did it in Call of Duty 4 with an Xmas themed Crash on PC.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            They actually did that on Battlefield 4 with Paracel Storm. Battlefield 4 currently has the lead in terms of revolutionary dynamic mechanics.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I know, imagine that for Advanced Warfare though?

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Considering the fact that they hired people for dynamic weather physics, it’s entirely possible.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I’m more than sure that the Golden Gate Bridge is going to be a multiplayer map, imagine playing on it and it’s snowing, YAY! πŸ˜€

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            That’d be pretty epic.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I’ve lived in San Fransisco for 13 years. I’ve never seen a single piece of snow, lol. Fog, rain, high winds, or an earthquake would be awesome and plausible, but it’ll never snow.

          • TheShadowReaper

            that’s unfortunate. snow is nice. especially because schools close down cause of it! ^^

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yeah, then I moved to Nevada where it also doesn’t snow, lol. ):

          • Just imagine if we get the ‘Dynamic Spawns’ that everyone was hyped up about in Ghosts! Spawning from a helicopter and repelling down into the map! Or being brought in from a troop boat! I can no longer see my screen clearly, I just nerdgasmed everywhere…

          • jordanxbrookes

            I think it could be possible to see the dynamic loading screens in this game. In that Seattle mission, you’re in a dropship so maybe we can get dropped down or maybe rappel to the ground, maybe use the cloaking ability to sneak into the map? Just some ideas, but I can definitely see dynamic loading screens being put in this game.

          • Kobrah

          • TheShadowReaper

            these are NOT content. these are features the game offers you. i mean, seriously…are gamers these days SO dumb? how the fuck EA has a group of suckers like you buying their games?

            content goes like:
            -Singleplayer
            -Multiplayer
            -Co-Op mode (Extinction)

            what BF has is… Multiplayer. and THATS it. wow such a huge amount of content.

            edit: and oh yes…”Singleplayer” buahaha! xD

          • jordanxbrookes

            BF4 campaign only has 7 missions, not impressed -_-

          • TheShadowReaper

            but i guess its an improvement over what BF3 has given us as a campaign. BF3’s campaign was REALLY bad.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Yeah. BF4’s SP was decent. At least it let you unlock MP weaponry.

          • TheShadowReaper

            i think BF3 did that too. with their Co-Op. but it was content you couldnt use unless you unlocked it through the Co-Op. and the Co-Op was dead in 2 months time. good luck with that…

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Yeah, but it had my favorite weapon (MP-7). I think that’s a good thing to do to get players to play the content that you put into the game.

          • TheShadowReaper

            yeah but there was one problem. NO ONE was playing it! damnit…and i was left in a corner crying that i never got my Raging Bull sidearm…fuck this shit.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I kinda liked the BF3 campaign, I like it more than BF4 that’s for sure, although Bad Company 2 is where it’s at.

            Ok, be a dickhead even though I was trying to have a civil conversation.

          • Steve

            You practically called anyone who likes BF dumb and a “sucker.” Grow up man, just because your opinion isn’t the same as everyone else’s, Jesus.

          • TheShadowReaper

            huh…you do understand that BF is a shame to the entire industry right? yeah i think i’m right to call them dumb. or rather “not informed”. as i was myself, rather dumb and uninformed but that’s not going to happen again. with any EA game.

          • I agreed with you until this comment. I don’t think that BF is a shame to the entire industry (Assuming you mean video game/FPS industry). I thought that BF3 was pretty good MP wise. Given, I didn’t buy it, but I played it at my friends house all the time! Now, if you meant to say BF4 is a shame to the entire Battle Field industry, then I cant argue with you there. BF4 IMO is one of the worst ‘Next-Gen’ games. CoD Ghosts IMO was even better than that!

          • J4MES

            I play both COD and BF and I am pretty bemused at you attitude. I have easily 100+ on Both Ghosts and BF4 and the wealth of content in the latter surpasses most videogames these days. Slating fellow gamers with an elitist attitude like that isn’t really acceptable behaviour. It’s clear you don’t know the definition of ‘content’ or it’s going over the your head because people have proved you wrong and you’re clutching at straws? Comment flagged also.

          • TheShadowReaper

            you can cry me a river but we both know the truth. which is the reason why you are butthurt so much.

            also, i could give a fuck less about your flag. shove it up your ass instead.

          • J4MES

            Clearly you have some mental incapacity and attitude problem but really kid? You should respect other people on this site who are here for the same interests as you. If you really are bitter because other people own other games aside from COD that you don’t like; that’s pretty pathetic. Grow up and show some respect instead of hiding behind your keyboard giving it large. Not shining the COD community in a good light or representing the site very well either. Pathetic.

          • TheShadowReaper

            i’m not hiding behind anything. you instead hide behind your EA cock. i’m not the one that supports a company that produces shitty games, you are. if anyone needs to grow up here and realize what they’re doing that is you.

          • J4MES

            LOL so just because I bought Battlefield 4 despite owning all the battlefield games in the last decade; that makes me a bad person? I own all the COD games too and the same could be said for those also in relation to Activision. Clearly you are nothing more than an overzealous, immature COD fanatic on some sort of crusade whilst riddled with jealously or something? Stop embarrassing yourself and grow up. Your attitude is alarmingly stupid but then again; stupid kids giving it large always humiliate themselves like that.

          • TheShadowReaper

            well i own most BF games until BF3. what is your point? so because of nostalgia i will instead keep eating the shit they feed me? BF3 is one of the worst FPS games i’ve ever played and that continues in BF4. and probably will continue with BFH. BF as a franchise has lost its spark and soul. its nothing like the old days. its a ghost of what it was. and it keeps getting worse. keep buying that shit. keep in mind though that you’re actually harming the FPS market by buying it.

            is COD games without sin? no, ofc not. but BF has stepped out so much of its identity and has instead become a COD clone, always to tread in the shadows of COD. and that’s sad, but its what is happening with every EA game. grow up some balls and realize that.

          • J4MES

            COD clone? Nah, you’ve never played a Battlefield game in your life. 32v32, the modes, the maps, the vehicles, the weapons, the equipment..none of which are the same or exist within COD which is more arcade based and a completely different type of MP FPS. You’re certainly deluded and on some sort of crusade but anything you say is without merit because it’s just so deranged and of a paranoid nature.

          • TheShadowReaper

            btw, what are you doing in a COD blog? do you see me coming to your shitty BF blog commenting on how awesome COD is? gtfo already.

          • J4MES

            I have been a COD gamer since probably before you were even born judging by your childish attitude. Just because I own other games aside from COD doesn’t mean I can’t be commenting on here about my pre-ordered game. It’s people like you that are really representing the community badly. You started this Battlefield talk and just because a fair few people own that also and communicated this; that makes them not belong here? Most of these people probably used this site before you also. Stop dragging the community down. This site is really going down the pan and you’re one of the causes. Grow up or get out.

          • TheShadowReaper

            representing the community badly? i think you are mistaken. when i talk about BF i do not talk as a COD gamer. i talk as a gamer in general. and BF right now is a plague. too bad you cant grow up some balls and realize that. wtf drug is EA using, its really effective.

            as for the “I have been a COD gamer since probably before you were even born” comment, which is pretty laughable because you’re referring to me as a “kid” but that is one of the most childish comments i’ve ever seen, i think i am older than you. after all, i have been playing COD since the very first one. i am 23 btw.

          • J4MES

            23 and you act like this? Jesus. Well BF4 on my PC maxed out has worked flawlessly since Christmas. North of 80,000 play it at a time as opposed to Ghosts which only gets about 4,500 tops on the PC version now. I still play it now and again but am waiting for AW. I’ve read your comments and anyone that mentions Battlefield gets berated whether they own COD or not by yourself. People have their OWN opinions in which they are fully entitled and they can play what they want when they want without having to answer to you. Slating them, swearing and being disrespectful whilst carrying some elitist attitude is just showing you up as an immature, bitter and twisted fanboy. Your persistence to not let something go also oozes a real lack of common sense and respect. You aren’t older than me and I seriously doubt you’re 23. My son displays a more mature and respectful manner and he’s only 11. If gaming/COD has really sent you into this kind of frenzied state of mind; I’d seriously consider taking a break or seeing a doc.

          • TheShadowReaper

            what do you mean 23 and act like this? you are probably not even 20 and you damage control one of the worst companies on the gaming industry, EA! come on kid. your arguments have been pretty pathetic. nuff said.

            also, i highly doubt your kid is mature. he is ignorant, like you are. ignorant people tent not to react to anything cause they have no idea about anything. typical Americans.

          • J4MES

            Ignorance and stupidity is bliss. I’m not even American and now you’re getting stereotypical. You wouldn’t even see this level or idiocy on the IGN boards. You have issues.

            i’m not the one damage controlling EA. yeah, the IGN board. how much they pay you to be there? i hope it is worth the money.

          • ForgottenHero

            Well said. I used to visit this site and comment regularly but now I don’t even feel compelled to sign in and join in with the comments because the section is just riddled with idiots. Can’t work out if Reaper is a troll or just simply deranged but his general attitude stinks and diminishes the quality of this site and puts people right off airing their thoughts. It’s a shame because it’s an exceptionally interesting and exciting time for Call of Duty but when people don’t show respect and act like complete dicks; what’s the bloody point.

          • J4MES

            Yeah it’s a shame because this site is growing yet people are seeing the comments and the general attitude of others and immediately turning away. Like you said; this is an exciting time for COD and it’s a real shame people have to act like idiots. You can’t even have an opinion without getting berated and now apparently you can’t even own other games other than COD because you’re harming the industry.

          • ddrhodes33

            They have done it before in World at War, even though it was DLC. That was on 360 and PS3, they should be easily able to do it with next-gen.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yeah, but unfortunately you’ve been playing the same game since BF3, and you’ll still be playing it Hardline. I liked Bad Company 2 and BF3, but I’m not going to waste my money on essentially the same game with different game modes.

          • J4MES

            Sounds like you’re talking about COD there also;-)

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Look at the differences between the last 3 CODs. BO2, Ghosts, and now AW. Now look at the differences between BF3, BF4, and Hardline. At least COD tries to experiment and change to see if the fans would like it.

          • J4MES

            COD has changed eras and mixed it up but it’s still the same old game deep down. Battlefield has no had a considerable overhaul but has certainly beefed up its content, maps and dynamic aspects along with the new engine. Hardline looks a massive step backwards in terms of the scope and concept. I can see it being good fun and something different but not worth full price. Battlefield certainly has a limit on what it conveys but it does feel different between games and the quality of the engine certainly makes you feel like you’re playing a different game each time.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Indeed. I will say, I love BF’s dynamic maps, and especially their easter eggs in the maps. However, BF got old for me, whereas COD is a change of pace for me. However, what I don’t like is how COD has gotten so used to the 4 DLC packs, that their not expanding the core game. With new consoles and as technology advances, COD should be able to have more default maps released at launch and more weapons in the game by default. The DLC could still make up an additional 16 maps, but I think there should just be more things added (like camos) into the core game, instead of having them as micro-DLC.

          • J4MES

            Well said Steve. I agree with what you said about BF in comparison to COD regarding content. There really is no argument on what has more. Proper dynamic maps in AW would be brilliant.

          • jooker-jr

            I like the dynamic maps idea.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Tell that to IGN and Gamespot.

          • Bazzer91

            I take it you haven’t played the likes of Battlefield or Arma then? COD has very limited content and it’s barely a military-oriented game. Most COD fanboys dare not delve into proper games like that where it takes true skill and teamwork.

            Battlefield 4 has over 140 weapons, 2.3 billion combinations, umpteen epic maps, a fantastic array of modes and plenty of unlocks and assignments. Ranking is a grind but very rewarding. Arma III is also a proper tactical military game whereas COD is merely now a fantasy arcade FPS for easily pleased simpletons.

          • TheShadowReaper

            Arma is not even a AAA game. yes its good, i know all about Arma – i’m a PC gamer after all. but i just dont have friends that play Arma so no point in playing it alone…

            but if you think that Arma or BF have more content that COD then you’re delusional.

          • Bazzer91

            LOL! BF4 has proven itself to be one of the most content-laden games in history. Only people that dismiss such a thing are ignorant COD fanboys and people that haven’t played it. Arma III is immensely popular on PC and with over 600,000 people playing a day and CREATING content on a regular basis; it puts the 2,500 COD players to shame on Steam. I also have about 9,000 maps downloaded for CSGO which is another game riddled with content; official and user created. Face it; COD has nothing and the microtransactions are laughably embarrassing additions to a weakening series.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            If by content you mean bugs and glitches, then you’re right. BF4 does have more “content” than COD. (;

          • Bazzer91

            I’d rather play a broken Battlefield than a terrible COD like Ghosts. BF4 is fixed completely now and it’s epic.

          • Fixed completely? You must be joking! My friend has been sending me video after video of glitches. Like when you are so far out of the map, there is no terrain, just white glitchiness? Yeah, totally fixed.

          • TheShadowReaper

            he is a fanboy. there is no cure. ignore him.

          • Bazzer91

            Funny coming from you kid. Typical ignorant fanboy who is clueless about anything outside of COD. Also throws a hissy fit if someone disagrees with him or states their own opinion. Get some fresh air

          • Bazzer91

            Haha you’re lying. You cant get out of the map because it’s redline protected. ‘Friend sending me video after video’ LOL! BF4 works a dream now on PC maxed out.

          • xDrayton1212

            I’ve played Battlefield 4 for a long while even with its netcode problems and I’ve never seen a glitch like that in my time or on YouTube. DICE also outlined the detected issues and that wasn’t one of them. You can’t even get out of the may because of the Red Line limit so I call BS on your claim.

          • J4MES

            You can’t go out of the map without getting auto-killed (Redlining) For all the issues on BF4; you’ve picked one that doesn’t exist! Ooops

          • Bigi345

            I know your comment is from 4 days ago but, this is my BF4 experience from Jul 15.

          • TheShadowReaper

            so by “more content” you mean more guns and camos? xD

            also, Arma3 is a game that works with Steam workshop. that content is not content that the original developers of Arma3 have made. its not THEIRS! you are giving props to the wrong people. the props should be given to the modders and dedicated fans of Arma.

            USE A BRAIN NEXT TIME!

          • jooker-jr

            I play bf4 and TBH I only use 3 optics ( because the rest are useless ), laser and caned iron-sight, suppressor or muzzle break, and angeld or stubby grip.

            Yes bf4 is almost glitch free , fun ( for my experience in the ps4 ) and the ranking is good in it but a lot of things in bf4 ( and I mean ALOT OF THEM ) are useless and a lot of people don’t use them.

            So I respect your opinion but I don’t agree 100% on it.

          • Keshav Bhat

            Can I just say something here –

            1) BF games fail to work for the first several months. COD games work at launch.

            2) If you consider BF4’s or BF3’s campaign an actual campaign, then idk

            3) COD always delivers more content because: full campaign, content rich MP, and a co-op mode. BF only delivers an MP experience that takes months after launch to work.

            Okay, thanks for y’alls time

          • jordanxbrookes

            The Moderator speaks the truth @theshadowreaper:disqus XD

          • kyr95

            Couldnt have said it better.
            In my opinion Cod’s campaigns is a definite advantage over BF

          • ccrows

            What footage?

            All we’ve seen is campaign (like we should for now).

            Until the Aug MP reveil, we haven’t seen Sh*t yet…

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            They’ve been showing Campaign footage, and judging by this article, most of their features are making their way into MP.

          • ccrows

            “Most” people buy COD for the MP. (& never even touch the campaign)

            BTW, You who else had a good campaign? MW2

            Yet MW2 had one of the most gamebreaking features ever in MP with OMA/DC…

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Your point? My point was that the features are making it into MP from Campaign.

          • ccrows

            There’s stuff in COD campaigns that stay in the campaign.

            My point is that we won’t know what the MP will be like until the MP reveal itself.

            Until SH shows the “official reveal”, as far as I’m concerned none of the campaign stuff that we’ve seen so far matters…

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            That is why I said “most” not “all”.

          • MMEH

            Actually, 80% of the people that buy cod play only the campaign and never touch MP…

  • Manx Mouse

    The suspense is killing me! What is that surprise?!

    • jooker-jr

      That’s it, It’s the word.

  • I feel like the surprise is going to be really lame and everyone will get mad, but I don’t care if it’s not anything great because MP reveal is so soon!

    • Aymen Skiken

      3 weeks FO’ DUCK’S SAKE !

  • Abhishek Jain

    cloaking is not revolutionary ..its camper friendly

    • Batman

      Dont worry it will be balanced

      • Abhishek Jain

        i hope cloak works on 5 second timer only

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      They didn’t say cloaking would be revolutionary. Point out to me in this article where SHGames said that cloaking would be revolutionary. No. It’s the way that these features combine and are used into the game. THAT is what makes it revolutionary. What mechanics are there in BF4? Basic weapon use and physics. CoD now has actual GAMEPLAY mechanics now.

  • Batman

    Fuck YEAH!

  • ddrhodes33

    I was really hoping that cloaking would not be in MP, it might turn multiplayer into Crysis with just a little bit of COD coming through. If so I hope they know how it can be balanced or nerfed if needed.

  • Baldmanz_RAGE

    Cloaking will kill MP if it isn’t balanced right. I was hoping that they would not put that in MP. But who are we kidding, a lot of people(myself included) are looking past this game and gearing up for what Treyarch has to offer. At best AW will just be a 1 to 2 month distraction until other next gen games are released in 2015.

    • TheShadowReaper

      a true COD fan wont look past this one. Treyarch is indeed the best COD developer right now, i love them. but i would be a traitor to COD if i wouldnt give a chance to AW. and that’s what you are right now Baldmanz.

      • Baldmanz_RAGE

        I’m a fan of all games. But when it comes to FPS, IW and COD have let me down with their pile of shit that is Ghosts. Sledgehammer is unproven in the FPS market so they have to prove to me that the game is worth buying not the other way around. If you(TheShadowReaper) want to blindly follow COD for the sake of being a “True Fan” go right ahead and possibly waste your money. But I for one am not going to get burned again.

        • TheShadowReaper

          IW has let me down too. and i agree on the IW hate, they deserve it.

          but Sledgehammer? the creators of Dead Space? one of the best horror games out there? i think they have done more than proving themselves already.

          • Baldmanz_RAGE

            Yes, they are a competent developer but Dead Space is a different animal. 3rd person horror is not a first person shooter. Plus with all the added mechanics and equipment they are adding we don’t know how it will translate during MP gameplay. I’ve been let down by an established developer(IW) so, for me, Sledgehammer has sell me on their vision. I hope i will be surprised and the game will be good but i definitely won’t be giving Activision my money until I know for sure how it will play in MP.

  • jordanxbrookes
    • jasonxbrookes

      Damn that’s disappointing. How about a Beta announcement? That is just what these games need.

    • kyr95

      Dont know if hes bluffing or double-bluffing :p

    • Aymen Skiken

      it sounds like a joke :/ i dawn’t knaw wut to believe goddamit, i have to wait…

      • jasonxbrookes

        Probably a MP tease. Short 30 sec video perhaps.

        • jooker-jr

          I would rather to have a 2 mins SP trailer a 30 secs MP.

      • Spodermen

        Edward Elric DLC camo confirmed!

        • Aymen Skiken

          i would risk my life for dat πŸ˜€

          • Spodermen

            It would probably cost an arm and a leg *rimshot*

          • Spodermen

            Would you pay an arm and a leg?

          • Aymen Skiken

            here take ,now give me dat shiet

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Maybe it’s a live action trailer?

      • Keshav Bhat

        no, those don’t happen till closer to launch usually

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Ah, I just wasn’t sure. If it’s not MP, idk what it could be.

          • Guest

            does he know what it is? Just because he seems so sure never-mind he edited it. SRY

          • Keshav Bhat

            i may or may not know…it’s not a live action trailer, that i can say with a 100% certainty

  • HenryDF

    Why are so many people so worried about stuff being OP? Take the cloaking in Titanfall as an example – that worked fine, wasn’t OP. There’s that grenade that acts a bit like the MMS Sight from BO2 – that worked fine, wasn’t OP.

    The cloaking will be fine. Trust me.

    • IMO the cloaking should be done the way I explained in a reply I did to sillibk. Please check it out and comment feedback!

  • destsicate

    Cloaking…….will not be buying this game

  • dest

    They are trying to change call of duty to much yes different is good but this??? this doesnt sound like cod

  • Xecho

    And here we go with the people saying they want change but then they don’t want it. GG No Re CoD fanbase

  • SonicDash06

    I think that what they are doing is just using the exo skeleton aspect to make the game more fast paced not to change the game.

  • dest

    Well done SH youve finally managed to kill COD

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      *Games not even out yet, and all we’ve seen is Campaign so far.*
      cawd iz ded, zomg!!!11!1!!!

      • dest

        its going to be a flop like ghosts and is getting over hyped like titanfall

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          I know, this can be possible. I’m just saying that you shouldn’t say COD is ruined before you even see the MP in action.

  • Mitch

    Also in the article when talking about SP:
    ”…you might, for example, use the suit’s manoeuvring capabilities to get the drop on an enemy, or pluck a door from a nearby car and use it to shield your approach. All of these abilities can be called upon in multiplayer, too.”
    So I guess we can also use car doors as shields in MP?

    • Cooler riot shields? With durability maybe? Since the glass is most likely not bullet proof, and they are available everywhere I assume, it would be cool with durability IMO. Thoughts?

      • TheShadowReaper

        sounds cool. but would this really be a feature in a COD game? i mean, i’m alright with it but the question is…is Activision alright with it? that’s what we should be asking.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Sounds goods. When Ghosts said they had interactive maps, that’s the kind of stuff I wanted. Not blowing up a pile of logs..

  • Slothigans

    I hope this little interview isn’t the “surprise”.

    • Even if it is, we learned that AW will most likely have cloak in MP. Game changing stuff, bruh.

      • Slothigans

        Haha, well I hope it’s not. Even if it’s 30 seconds long a shit ton can be found in that amount of time. Crossing my fingers!

    • Keshav Bhat

      this isn’t it

      • Mitch

        If you know something we don’t, speak!

        • Keshav Bhat

          it’s still scheduled for today, dont know what time

    • Guest 601

      I’m pretty the surprise comes from Sledgehammer or call of duty Directly.

  • Freeze

    Okay so when they say “off the controller” changes, what does that mean?

  • Atleast with the boost dodge and stuff, you won’t be called a ” shotgun noob ” that often.

    • Grenada!

      Shotguns actually take more skill to use than the usual spray and pray guns everyone uses, so if anything, I would call the people who can only use ARs or SMGs a bunch of noobs.

      • Jmoney55

        It takes one shot to kill with a shotgun and five to six shots to kill with an AR or SMGs. I wouldn’t call that skill, especially with the red screen gun Remington in black ops 2

      • MP7 from MW3.
        Everyone is using it!

  • Grenada!

    Did he say cloak will be in MP? Please no.

    • Slothigans

      Too late. (;

  • Guywithbrains

    I can smell it… that surprise is around the corner! I am hoping for some new video, even SP trailer or MP teaser would be good enough for me.

  • Base_Ballr27

    Hopefully cloaking works like with the Predator in Ruins on Ghosts.

  • Base_Ballr27

    Was this this the surprise?…….. I certainly hope not.

    • I came inside her.

      Don’t think so, if it was then that is the worst surprise in history.

    • Keshav Bhat

      no, stay tuned, this was just an interview that OXM posted because they have been posting interviews all month long.

    • Aymen Skiken

      this is better than the not-even-close-to-a-surprise

  • Luis

    So they are sort of bringing back the AK? Classic weapon, I wonder which weapon they may bring back this time (M4, ACR, UMP to name a few possibilities.

    • Grenada!

      It would be cool if they added in a classic gun that was not futuristic. Like the classic AK47 or a MP40 from WW2. Like how CoD4 had the STG from ww2.

  • Question

    Is this the Thursday surprise???

    • Keshav Bhat

      no

      • Charlie

        it is though. πŸ™

  • Nick

    cloaking in multiplayer? Noooooo!

  • Keshav Bhat

    PSA: this is not the surprise, we’ll post the surprise when it’s announced.

    • jordanxbrookes

      I can’t wait anymore Keshav, are you excited for this surprise? Or is that just 95% of the community that is excited? πŸ™‚

      • Keshav Bhat

        am i excited? that’s a good question.

        • Aymen Skiken

          CoD devs are such good trolls…the last stand guy was the best

    • Duke of hazard

      MULTIPLAYER OR WE RIOT!

  • Jmoney55

    This game has done a lot to impress though I should be cautious. A previous article they mentioned that this game puts more emphasis on skill than any other call of duty and I hope this is true, but I don’t know if I believe it with previous CODs and the BS we’ve seen.

    • Kill Denied

      K. It was your fault for getting too hyped up for a surprise.

  • AAAAAANDERSON

    A very, very blurry image of something that I don’t recognize from cod. Probably a dev working.

    http://puu.sh/aprS0/7272c0b542.png

  • ThatOneBlazian

    Cloak could be similar to Crysis, sprinting depletes your cloak meter faster, shooting immediately uncloaks you, and the cloak itself is more like a blur like the predator or in titanfall. Also using weapons (if there are any) like the ballistic knife keeps you cloaked like the predator bow in Crysis 3.

    Here’s some gameplay I found of it from Crysis 3:
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=us7Tzc_MRNM

  • Never saw anything like this in Crysis MP games.

  • smayo

    I believe it when I see it…

  • Aymen Skiken

    “lethal slam from above” so it turned out to be a first person WWE…

    • Who even cares

      They might as well take “Call of Duty” off the title. This isn’t even Call of Duty anymore. “Lethal slam, cloaking, boost jumps, power punches”. Say that to a CoD player a year ago, they would be like, “What the hell are you talking about, that’s just stupid.” If you all want to see a lethal slam, look it up in Destiny. (After watching) Is that really what you want in CoD?

      • Aymen Skiken

        guys calm your tits down , its a joke , i love cod…

    • ThatOneBlazian

      I’m assuming you’ve never played Crysis 3

  • Charlie

    I see a lot of people worried about some of these features making it to MP. It will definitely be interesting to see how these are implemented.

    Cloak can be balanced, and I don’t think it will have a huge affect on gameplay, I don’t think they would introduce it to COD and make it on a level that breaks the game.

    The melee from above sounds cool. How many times have you dropped down on an enemy and wait til you land to knife or spray. I can see a lot more of these situations happening now that they are bringing more verticality to the game, plus the boost jump. How awesome would it be to just pull off an awesome melee kill while dropping down on someone’s head?

    I hope the dashing isn’t too crazy, something with a long enough refresh time so people don’t dash all over the place.

    I’m very welcoming to faster paced and more fluid movement, there’s a nice middle ground between current COD games and something like Titanfall. As long as it’s done well. I also expect less cluttered maps with more open space to move around in with these new features.

    • ComeOnBro

      People are gonna boost jump into the air and then slam down. Doesn’t sound like CoD, but I’m open to whatever they’re gonna throw at us. Still want it to be at least 80% gun-on-gun.

      • Charlie

        I think these features are gonna make it to MP, but not on the level that people are thinking. The boost jump and what-not, the dash are all probably gonna have a certain amount of availability, and have a decent recharge time. I don’t think it’s gonna be in the game to the point where every second people are gonna be boost-jumping, dashing all around, and cloaked dudes everywhere. It’s gonna be balanced to the point where the same COD gameplay and gun on gun action is still in focus.

        Seems like all this was added to make the game faster paced, more fluid and more of a challenge/more strategy involved. None of which I’m worried about. We’ll learn a lot more in the next few weeks though.

        • Suu

          You know what would suck, if they somehow manage to mod and hack the game so noobs’ll have unlimited sprint-dash-jumps, I mean I’m open the issue it the hackers that ruin it sometimes. In my opinion.

  • Pissed of gamer

    “Controller changes” WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!! I do not want revolutionary, I want the Call of Duty that I love! Did you see what happen with “little changes” they had in Ghosts? Better be fucking great! >:(

    • elijah

      lol we all need to start making this known to activation, I’m reading all these comments and i thought i was the only one who had a problem with this

    • KevJumbaify .

      I’m happy with the new features but controlls changing? Wtf

  • Sunjay

    For me cloaking has no place in mp, it’s fine in titanfall because the fine to kill is more like battlefield, you have time to react. In cod it will cause nothing but arguments and we have enough of them going on as it is.

    • elijah

      agreed

  • 2 CENTS

    Sledgehammer please, please, please, please have a rank up system weapon system in multiplayer. None of this currency. Ruins experimenting and goals.

  • NO CURRENCY, PLEASE

    Vote down for currency, vote up for ranking. If you can’t vote, reply.

  • WTF

    No revolution! WTF! No! I do not remember anyone asking for revolution! Haven’t seen or heard anyone say, “They must revolutionize Call of Duty, now!”. Sledgehammer, just stop. Who asked for future. Who asked for a revolution. MW2, great. Black ops, great. MW3, great. BO2, great. Ghosts, ……..LAME

    • WTF

      “Little changes” to Ghosts and look where it landed it. Now you want drastic changes? Hey, if I’m wrong call me what you will. But, if this crashes I’m really gonna flip out. Not a hater, just a concerned and very worried Call of Duty player.

      • elijah

        agreed, i am a cod player to and i just want to play simple cod like mw2 or mw3 or bo1 and bo2, they keep changing shit and fucking the game up, i am praying treyarch sets everything straight

        • KevJumbaify .

          It needs a change. I don’t want to be playing the same game for the next 20 Years. I want new features.

          • elijah

            the changes are whats making it a bad game. Example; Ghost, id rather them recreate the same game over and over with a few new ideas than to have them completely ruin the game, people that say its the same want them to implement features in the game that other games have, lol they’ve been doing just fine without changing the game, when they changed ghost most of the cod community responded negatively, and it didn’t outsell any other cod and was number 2 on the top selling games of the year but before ghost its been number one every year. and if you look at black ops 2 and the amount of people playing daily you’ll know theres usually 100,000 or more people playing everyday but on xbox one and 360 theres usually no more than 24,000 people playing. add them together and thats barely half of what black ops 2 has on just the 360. I’m all for new things but if it means not being cod anymore I’m not with it, because if i wanted battlefield or titanfall or destiny or halo ill just buy them but this is cod the best fps there is and i really would hate to see them go downhill.

    • elijah

      agreed and couldn’t say it any better than you did

    • KevJumbaify .

      A lot of people asked for a change. Which is mostly the same thing.

  • ccl-brn2kill

    The point that Sledgehammer thinks stuff like this is good news, really pisses me off. If you like hearing every word of this shit you’re not a true CoD player.

  • Why!

    “Oh yeah, we realize there are SOME things we have to keep the same……. so there’s a reskinned ak-47.” Why Sledgehammer? Why must you make us wait ANOTHER long year for CoD? All I want is CoD. I can’t even get good OLD-FASHIONED CoD. “Changing controls.” WHAT! Who, who wants lethal slams, boost jumps, cloaking, and super strength? They have to have iron man for people to like it.

    • Why!

      “They don’t have to have iron man.” I meant

    • elijah

      Omg dude who are you?? you have just said exactly what i have been saying since they started talking about advanced warfare. we just want an good old cod that we are use to, no super powers no cloaking, we need to make our voices be heard

  • I’m really disappointed that they mentioned cloaking. I’m still super keen for AW but this just puts a dampen on it. Although I’m guess they will definitely balance it (very short, limited time, need so many kills, can’t cloak when shooting) and it’ll probably be more like titanfall where you’re not completely transparent

  • Tyrant Era

    LMAO he said Cloak, which means camper! D:

  • elijah

    WTF are they doing to cod? cloaking, double jumping, and other super powers, what the hell man.

    • Guywithbrains

      People want this franchise to change and now it is changing. This features are more than welcome to this franchise.

      Although cloaking sounds odd. All those other features sound cool. πŸ˜‰

      • elijah

        and those things sound cool but yet when they did what they did to cod ghost it wasn’t cool, and i think this will be no different.

  • cant wait for advanced warfare mp

  • jordan

    Cloaking is going to ruin mp there will be more campers than ever ,just bring back the old codd

  • jordan

    Look at all the old cods that was based in the old times everyone loved them but for the modern ones like cod ghost everyone hates it so just imagen the future :/

  • HUSTLExXxMAN

    I think the cloacking needs to be scrapped all together if u ask me cloacking along will just bring the crysis comparisons and since Destiny don’t have any cloaking from what I can tell from the beta advanced warfare shouldn’t have any either it’ll bring too much of a unrealistic feel to a game that’s supposed to be based off realistic technology and we all know cloaking is as unrealistic as it gets lol

  • HUSTLExXxMAN

    Also besides the cloaking issue the bigger issue should be player count, the 6 vs 6 is old as fuck and its time for at least 12 vs 12 and split both teams into 2 separate squads of 6 that way u can’t control the entire team with clan play we would then be forced to play along side of a 2nd squad, nothing worse than playing against clan happy punks beating up on people who play casual by themselves or with 1 or 2 friends top

  • NTC187

    Ugh, this sounds like it is going to be a massive failure. Boost jumping? Cloaking? This sounds exactly like Titanfall and Destiny. Surely they could’ve gone in a more original direction? I thought we got the whole “future COD” thing with Black Ops 2? It would’ve been nice to see them stick to the modern era and do something different with that, rather than add to the 50 futuristic FPS that are coming out (or have come out) over the next year or so.
