  • 13 is a good number just as long as they all appear in the rotation. For some reason I feel like I’m always playing the same 5 maps every day.

    • Ninjahh

      Yh true… 😀

    • Drasadex

      Agreed.

    • PuddingAuxRais1ns

      Some maps are taken out of rotation completely in FFA.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Yeah it sucks since I’d like to play FFA on all the maps :/

        • PuddingAuxRais1ns

          Some maps are taken out for good reason. I couldn’t imagine playing FFA on Stonehaven or Aftermath.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Stonehaven I can understand, but Aftermath, I can live with.

  • Ninjahh

    At least the maps aren’t raped like Ghosts, maps were terrible in ghosts

  • justchill1234

    do you think that its discriminating that only people who are not trolls, cheaters, abusers can have their posts undeleted….

  • Brad

    Mw2 and bo1 came with 16 smfh sledgehammer you had 3 fucking years

    • Guest

      Lmao! xD

    • Ninjahh

      At least they’re good maps….

      • the specialist

        Mw2 had 16 maps and they were all great ?

        • kyr95

          Not everyone would agree 😛
          There’ll always be someone who hates a specific map.

          • the specialist

            Well for me they were all great because they were balanced i think?i used every single weapon even handguns and shotguns☺

          • kyr95

            I loved them all too.

          • the specialist

            I played MW2 today.just like old times?

          • kyr95

            I need to reinstall that as well until Nov.4 😉

          • the specialist

            Where are you from?Greece?

          • kyr95

            Yep! 😀

          • the specialist

            Me too ?

          • kyr95

            Sympatrioti!! 😀

          • kplem

            ρε ελληνα, και εχω ειμαι απο την Ελλαδα καλη μερα 🙂

          • kyr95

            Ti sto kalo re paidia. Oloi edo mazeutikan? 😛

          • kplem

            χαχαχα μονο τρεις ειμασται τορα 😛

      • Brad

        You haven’t played them. Every cod has had and will continue to have 1-3 shit maps that nobody wants to play. This will be no exception.

        • Yes. Even if the maps arent necessarily “bad’ they are bad compared to the rest

          • People, Look Things Up!

            How does this happen..? Who at Sledgehammer/Infinity Ward/Treyarch actually says to themselves “this is a good map, I enjoy the terrible map design”??

          • Well with IW, they are all smoking crack but everyone else not really. You can’t help but have a map or two that people like the least. It’s literally inevitable.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            I mean I get that but awful maps that literally no one likes such as Aftermath and Seige can’t be looked at by anyone as good maps so why are they in the game?

          • Wasnt aftermath a map in BO2 or is there one in Ghosts that you’re talking about? If you are talking about BO2 then Im probably the only one that didnt really mind that map. I wasnt thrilled when I played it but it wasnt in my opinion bad. Drone is probably my least favorite in the game.

    • You will anyway play only 3 maps.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Pretty much. Usually there are like 8 maps at launch that always get picked.

    • HenryDF

      And how many out of those 16 did you not play regularly? At least 3 or 4.

      • Juses

        I played all 16

        • HenryDF

          What I mean is that if you have 16 maps, some are always going to be more popular than others. You’ll barely play about 3 or 4, and you’ll play a lot more of another 3 or 4.

  • Mitch

    Lets hope all 13 maps are good. So far, all maps have been looking either decent or good.

    • Ninjahh

      Trust me they’re good, they arent shit like cod ghosts…

    • Juses

      Bio lab look slow paced

      • Ninjahh

        Ascend is the best…

        • justchill1234

          ascened is the worst out of the four maps

          • Ninjahh

            its cool though, a space terminal, retreat looks sweet, greenband seems cool… i think defender is the worst…

          • justchill1234

            defender is fine and easy to get around places…..

          • Ninjahh

            true we need maps that are open area so you can jump and stuff… good they doing a mix of both small to medium

          • justchill1234

            retreat sounds like its gonna be good, however recovery doesn’t seem to be good lol

          • Ninjahh

            theres a swimming pool woop woop

        • John Sotiriadis

          I like ascend too.It is dark and the graphics are good.I dont like defendr because it looks dirty.I prefer smoth clean textures

          • Ninjahh

            true same…

  • Juses

    Boo! We want more. This Is too little

    • Ninjahh

      at least they’re good nd u’ll get to only play a few

      • Juses

        You don’t know know if the maps are good from trailers, and that even wore that I’ll only play a few

        • Ninjahh

          By looking at it they look alright, but to be honest defender is the worst one…

          • Juses

            Bio-lab is IMO because from the streams I watched that map was really slow paced

          • Ninjahh

            yeah i know what your talking about… it does look slow paced..

  • jasonxbrookes

    30 maps by the time the DLC is all said and done. That’s a pretty good number.

    As long as they are all unique like in BO1/BO2, I’ll be happy.

    • Juses

      Maybe they’ll release a few free maps like mw3? 🙂

      • Ninjahh

        That’ll be actually cool…

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Not happening, that was Robert Bowling’s thing.

  • ScOott

    I would rather have 13 good maps than 16 mw3 or ghosts maps

    • kyr95

      This guy gets it.

    • Juses

      You don’t know that they’re good maps :/

      • ScOott

        Ok … I will re phrase …. I would rather have 13 nice looking maps than 16 ghosts or mw3 maps

        • clercq1983

          Most of the MW3 maps pretty good IMO… Some sucked but for most part they where good. But in COD you will always have maps you like and others you don’t…

          • ScOott

            Yh most of them played ok but I could of fallen asleep looking at the brown grey maps .. When I ever saw a bit of red on that one tiny map on mw3 I freaked out n woke up again after feeling colour blind for every other map

          • Super_Deluxe

            Yeah I hated the washed out colors in MW3 and MW2, I loved how BO2 colors we’re vibrant. Hopefully IW wakes up and improves their colouring scheme.

          • MassiveChaos347

            Yeah but IW games are taken place in modern days. Plus you don’t go to war with buildings being so colorful. They’ve got to have some messy color in them. IDK my opinion 😛

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            War? Most of “modern war” happens in large, open environments, with little to no cover.

            And the fact that there are Aliens on Multiplayer and supernatural shit all over Ghosts just contradicts everything.

          • MichiganerE

            MW2 was colorful as hell.

          • Super_Deluxe

            It was but it a bit hazy. Hated that, same problem in MW3.

          • MichiganerE

            What do you mean hazy? The maps were completely colorful. Even Afgan – a map that takes place in a desert – is vibrant and colorful.

          • yeah, mw2 was crisp af

          • MichiganerE

            Yep. Also, I don’t know what it was about MW2, but even time you play – even now – it still feels fresh.

          • Guest

            By Hazy he means the lighting had a filter over it that made everything look like shit.

          • MichiganerE

            Ya sure?

          • Diego Diniz

            Thats why MW2 is the best ever! Predator, AC-130, Chopper Gunner, Sentry Gun..Best streaks of all CODs…

          • MichiganerE

            Indeed.

          • MW2 had a bright vibrant theme for each map, set to one color palette, which sorta worked. But there’s also maps that were bright and diverse, like Terminal. It was a nice assortment.

          • Whoa

            Were your TV Color settings off or something? Mw2 has one of the best colors.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I’m not playing Dance Dance Revolution. I’m in a literal bloody war. Things are supposed to be dull.

          • KevJumbaify .

            I don’t want to play on maps that are gray and colorless. Maybe you do but not me

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Then go play a game that isn’t a shooter. It isn’t sunshine and rainbows.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            The issue isn’t the maps are dull it’s the maps and players are dull, so when every color on the map is brown and black it’s hard to pick out someone who’s wearing brown or black….BO2 did it right rainbow colors or not at least you could see people

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Yeah I understand you, but the maps on AW are silver and the soldiers are silver lol

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Nah the maps look vibrant ? I think this game looks good, I’m happy with everything but no dead silence…until they say exactly what they’re doing about this that will still be my only issue

          • Mw2 had some color at least .

          • Black

            Maps from the Invasion and Nemesis packs are very colorful.

          • Daniel

            BO2 had way too much colors. It became a paintball game

          • ScOott

            Literally … It had a paintball dlc map

          • Rabiddddddd

            Mw3 wasn’t brown, it was green and grey. So much fucking green .-.

          • GuestU

            Really? Most of them not only looked similar (color-wise) but they also fucking sucked.

          • No, every map condoned getting shot in the back

          • People, Look Things Up!

            I hated almost all the MW3 maps…I feel the way you do about Black Ops 2 though, only like 2 maps I really hated and they were Nuketown and Plaza (I play only search)

    • Rorke File

      You have to wait and see if it are good maps and MW3 had some good maps standard ..

    • DopeAap

      Let’s take a look at Team Fortress 2’s maps, there are like 5 of them (if you don’t count the free maps you get with every update, community made maps etc.) All of them are simple and made for 1 gamemode, im not saying they should copy the 1 map 1 gamemode idea but fewer simpler maps that will probably only be played anyway.

      • ThisGuy

        I would be okay with at least a couple of maps made for certain game modes as long as the maps were perfect for their respective modes.

  • Ninjahh

    The bonus maps going to be free later on anyway…

    • kyr95

      Did someone say Freeeeeeee?

      • Ninjahh

        Basically, bonus maps always become free for example nuketown 2025 came as a free update for everyone, nuketown 2025 which was in bo2 became free so its likely bonus map might be an update or something

        • kyr95

          Ah, i see 😉

          • Ninjahh

            Yeah, i think they should do free maps like in mw3, they did free maps like terminal remake and some other… hope they do.. what do you think?

          • kyr95

            Well, they did work on Mw3, however i dont know how much involvement they had in Mp.

          • Ninjahh

            yeah what did sledgehammer do in mw3? they brought a lot from bo2 but not mw3? well its good though… bo2 was good… emblem editor is back!

          • kyr95

            I think they only did sp and introduced the survival, as far as ideas went.

          • Ninjahh

            i wanted zombies so much, hows survival going to work in aw, do u level up like you do in mp

          • kyr95

            Im not sure how it’ll work this time.

          • Ninjahh

            well co op looks challenging with all those exo stuff

          • kyr95

            Packed with adrenaline–just as i like it 😀

          • Ninjahh

            you getting it on playstation or xbox, getting it on both ps3 and ps4…

          • kyr95

            Ummm………..pc 😛
            I know, i know, it’ll propably be not such a good port, but what can we do 😛

          • Ninjahh

            oh cool pc, it must be different playing on pc… keyboard or controller?

          • kyr95

            Keyboard, im not one of those “pc masters” 😛
            I dont know why but i love the feeling playing with it 🙂

          • Ninjahh

            ooh thats cool… so do you log in with steam? or something else?

          • kyr95

            Yep, good ol’ steam.

          • Ninjahh

            oh ok… thats cool… i can’t wait though… going to remote play with my xperia z3 phone on advanced warfare ps4, can you believe it a phone which lets you play playstation games :O

          • kyr95

            2014 Technology! 😀

          • Ninjahh

            I know right! eurgh iphone 6 was going to get it after all that bending thing… it just put me off…

          • kyr95

            Tight pants are the worst enemy!!!

          • Ninjahh

            haha looool…. well apple need to do something and give people a replacement, a replacement which will not bend and stuff…

          • kyr95

            Maybe the apple people are metalbenders 😛

          • Ninjahh

            Haha! I think apple did it on purpose… they want people to suffer…

          • kyr95

            They shall pay for that! >:D

          • Ninjahh

            yeah they should…

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

            I just red from beginning to end. How did you get from CoD to Apple?

          • So I’m not the only one that watches The Legend of Korra. Lol

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Metal bending was a big part of The Last Airbender, too. Though that reminds me, I need to catch up on Legend of Korra. I’ve only seen the first few episodes, lol.

          • Charlie

            If you were getting the 6+, than yeah but the regular 6 doesn’t have the bending problem. Just so you know, most of the headlines lump them together.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            The ads that other companies released were hilarious though. My favorite one was the one Pringles released.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Not really.

          • I dont think you necessarily “level up” but as you probably know, will unlock the different tiers of MP maps by completing rounds. This does not have to be all in one sitting though. Now the weapons/class & exo upgrades you get (ex. better armor, maybe higher boost just, ect…) will go with you into the next time you play. You dont lose anything like you did with gun levels in safeguard. You can upgrade your exo with “Upgrade Points” that you earn through the random objective rounds and Im guessing just playtime.

          • DaTrey17

            why would zombies be in a sledge hammer game. You must not know much about COD.

    • Scott

      When you pre order a game for a bonus map you aren’t paying extra for the map. The game costs the same with or without it.

      • ScOott

        Why have you stole my name ?

        • Scott

          You two are copying off me.

          • ScOott

            Sado

  • chjak no

    do you think that its discriminating that only people who are not trolls, cheaters, abusers can have their posts undeleted..

    • Juses

      Wut make a account and stop being scared

      • chjak no

        i am just saying , do you think that it is discrimination

        • Juses

          But I don’t know what your talking about

    • Aymen Skiken

      m8… m8… m8 … u k ?

  • Mitch

    From the same interview: ”You will have the option to unlock one item during each prestige before restarting the experience at level 1.” Looks like we’ll be able to permanently unlock 1 item after each prestige similar to BO2?!

    • Joeldagod

      and mw3

  • Juses

    Why do you guys think all 13 maps will be good?

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I don’t. Can’t judge it before I play on it. But so far they look fun, nicely paced, and aesthetically pleasing. Hopefully they are all good, but we all know there will always be that one map that everyone hates.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        They could make the best levels ever, and the community would still ruin them. So I probably wouldn’t blame level design.

  • Juses

    I womder if we’ll have more than 4 dlc maps this time since there will more space for dlc since the coop will use the mp maps

    • HenryDF

      It’s been confirmed there’ll be just four.

      • Juses

        Well that sucks but maybe we’ll have more new weapons:)

        • HenryDF

          Hopefully, particularly given that with the Advanced Arsenal/Day Zero we’re getting 3 new weapons, and another 2 if you get the Collectors edition.

          I know they’re not strictly “new” given that they’re variants – I’d expect there to be a mix of new variants and new weapons in the DLC.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It’s great for DLC, but it’s fucking bullshit that they’d ask money for it in the first place, because, you know, Activision is a business. And that sucks.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        $40-50 for 4 packs, with 4 maps per pack. 16 maps. What in the flying fuckity fuck?

  • justchill1234

    excited to troll people on S&R

  • Juses

    You forgot to add new map to the list

  • LovekillerX

    13 maps at launch sounds good for me. All of those maps look nice. I can’t wait to get my hands on the multiplayer and test these maps. 🙂

    If these maps are good then I probably consider buying season pass. But that is another case. I think that first DLC announcement will be at somepoint in winter. Hopefully they add more weapons, not just couple of new weapons like Ghosts did although maps were cool.

  • Pat

    If you noticed in all of the DLC’s too for bo1 you only played stadium

  • Ninjahh

    Whats your favorite maps?

    • Juses

      New map is my favorite

    • ScOott

      I hope they have their own hijacked/nuketown map!

      • Ninjahh

        oh i get you… yeah hopefully… it seems like ascend might be it because its a space terminal… just like terminal from mw3 but this is a space station… terminal is like one of those nuketown/hijacked maps… but we’ll see when the game comes out

      • Mitch

        I hope not. I wanna be able to enjoy as much maps as possible, not 1 or 2. Every time you get Hijacked or Nuketown 2015 you know it’s gonna be that map, if not the whole lobby leaves.

        • Ninjahh

          True… if we did have a map like that it’ll be too small nd it’ll be even more chaos… too much little space

        • ScOott

          But that just proves how fun they are ? … If map rotation is sorted out so you can’t play the same map twice in a row would solve that problem ?

          • Ninjahh

            hope that previous map vote comes back…

          • Mitch

            If a map can’t be played 2 times in a row everyone will just leave the lobby after the match, you also saw that in BO2 after Nuketown or Hijacked was played 2 times in a row. I’m hoping all maps will be equal fun.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Or maybe they just want a change of pace. I always leave lobbies after 1 or 2 lobbies because I like to play with other people each time. If I keep playing with the same guys, they’ll know what guns I use, the routes I take (though I change it up) and my playstyle. The only times I left a lobby in BO2 due to a map was if I was looking for a specific map to help me in a challenge or something (hail mary) or if it was Aftermath or Turbine, though I played those a few times just for fun.

    • KuuGeeL

      Detroit and ascend looks cool

      • Guywithbrains

        Ascend reminds me of my favorite map Terminal. 😛

        • KuuGeeL

          Detroit reminds me of overflow from bo2

          • Guywithbrains

            Let’s hope nothing reminds me of BO2 map Slum. That was horrible!

          • yoyoyoy

            that was a good map in my experience

    • Dean Cowan

      Green band looks really small and chaotic. Kinda reminds of a nice looking rust map from MW2.

  • Guywithbrains

    I can’t wait to try these maps…

    • Ninjahh

      Same….

  • jordanxbrookes

    14 is a good enough number for me to learn the maps and strategize. #KnowledgeChangesEverything

  • Ninjahh

    Do you unlock XP in Exo-Survival just like multiplayer?

  • Yassin

    13 maps and they already showed 6 of them. You have got to be fucking kidding me ………

    • Guywithbrains

      I don’t think they will show another map because IGN First is all about singleplayer next week… which makes me worry.

      • Ninjahh

        no way, i’d like to discover singleplayer my self when i get the game… hope they dont dont play anymore missions…

        • jordanxbrookes

          They’re showing off one more mission next Monday, and I’m guessing it’s BioLab since people saw Collapse and BioLab behind closed doors, and Collapse got shown off to the public after a couple of months.

          • Ninjahh

            yeah i know… oh thats cool…

  • MichiganerE

    So, when is Atlas Gorge going to be released to the public for everyone to download for free?

    • jordanxbrookes

      Probably about 5 months or so after the launch.

      • MichiganerE

        Thought so, same will probably happen with the Atlas Limited, Atlas Pro, Day Zero and the preorder content as well.

  • 13 maps=13 bloodlines of the Illuminati.
    SledgeHammer is Illuminati.

    • kyr95

      13 maps? 13 contains the number 3.
      HALF LIFE 3 confirmed!

      • Sir Frederick III

        sledgehammer had 3 years to develop illuminati has 3 sides….. ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED

        • People, Look Things Up!

          3 sides equals a triangle which means 3 years is 6 triangles which means they are actually……Double Illuminati! !

    • Marcos Encinas

      Cant forget about hellspawn

  • Alexander Thomas

    I’m glad they are realizing more isn’t always better, glad they are putting effort into better maps then more maps/ So far i personally think the maps look awesome, fast pace and fun to play on

    • Ryumoau

      me too. every map so far looks unique. Its not like Ghosts were it had 16 maps, but only 4 were worth anything. 🙁

  • Primey_

    13 + 1 bonus is fine

    BO2: 14 + Nuketown 2025
    Ghosts: 14 + Free Fall

    So it’s one less compared to the previous 2 games

    • Aymen Skiken

      the maps are more coulorful and awesome tho

      • Primey_

        Exactly. I prefer quality over quantity

        • Aymen Skiken

          touché

    • k5berry

      Well not that i have a problem with the lesser amount of maps, but it’s not like Atlas Gorge and Nuketown 2025/Free Fall can be considered equivalents due to their accessibility. The latter two were pre-order bonuses, which is a much more common thing than being part of the Collector’s Edition, which is how Gorge is accessed. Unless you’re talking about “eventually” instead of right now, in which they would be because it can be assumed that Gorge will eventually be released to the public for free.

  • jordanxbrookes

    So according to @EVILxJUGHERNOG, this is what the Exo Survival menu screen(Right) looks like compared to what Condrey tweeted out a while ago(Left). You can see the two screens are definitely different, so does this mean there is a fourth mode? Maybe, not going to get my hopes up, but there is still a chance.

    Image courtesy of @Josh_MGB.

    • Charlie

      The blurry image looks like a pause screen to me

      • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

        Because it is.

    • I commented my theory on other article but short version: The left one is the main menu for exosurvival and right one is the pre game lobby

    • ChickenDoughnut

      Left one looks like the Virtual Lobby, minus players

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      The left says Survival.

      • JustAGuest

        Doesnt it say Private Match on the right screen

    • OoFEVERNOVAoO

      I THINK THE 4TH GAME MODE WILL BE ROBOTS/DROIDS

    • BLACK SHEEP

      The screen on the left is from EXO Survival, just a different menu.

      There WILL however be a 4th mode called ‘Hellspawn’ that they are trying to keep under wraps until the game comes out (they want it to be a surprise like how IW wanted ‘Extinction’ to be a surprise until it leaked).

      The menu for the Hellspawn game mode starts with you waking up on the floor in a dark room with flickering lights and there are pentagrams and all types of satanic stuff on the walls/floor drawn in blood. You then then select your game options like public/private game, class selection, which stage you want to play on (maps are not “chapter based” like IW’s Extinction, more like 3arc’s Zombies where the game comes with 5 maps and there are 4 DLC maps for the future. All together they make the 9 Circles of Hell).

      After you choose your game options, your character gets up from the floor and engages in an animation that I don’t want to spoil (it has to do with the story arch for the mode). This animation takes about 20-30 seconds and replaces the map loading screen that you usually see when you’re waiting for the game to load a map. Once the animation is complete, you are launched directly into your game.

      The maps (at least the ones I’ve seen) are very different from each other. I was thinking that they would be all be similar in design and aesthetics but that is not the case at all. They are all pretty diverse both aesthetically and structurally.

      There are Easter eggs.

      The mode can be completed if you choose to complete it through an Easter egg (wasn’t told how, I just assume you escape hell or kill Lucifer or something?) I was told it takes a lot of teamwork.

      There are bosses.

      There are multiple types of enemies. ( I saw grunt demons, harpie looking things, gnarly looking goat Minotaur things, etc. etc.)

      There are classes similar to IW’s Extinction. (you don’t choose team deployables or starting pistol or anything like that, however. Powerups and weapons are littered throughout the map sort of like zombies.)

      The mode has max 8 player co-op
      OR
      4 v 4 (sort of like Zombies’ “Grief”)

      There are hidden trophies/achievements associated with the game mode that have not yet been revealed.

      If no photos/screenshots/gameplay are leaked then this mode will go unannounced until release. IF however that is not the case, then expect a trailer to be released within a couple of days after the leak.

      • kyr95

        I dont how you came up with all that, but i wish it were true :/

      • If this was true,,,,,,, fuck….

      • IS THIS IT??

        • kyr95

          This is an extinction map 😛

          • oh haha

          • natedog

            hellspawn as been linked, look it up on youtube

      • MichiganerE

        Nice troll.

        • kyr95

          Quite clever actually 😛
          Id never come up with something like that 😛

          • MichiganerE

            I probably could if I got creative enough. Even though this is fake, it’s still a great idea.

          • kyr95

            And a cool name ‘Hellspawn’

          • MichiganerE

            Yes…

          • Guest

            I’m gonna screenshot your conversation, an post it when the mode gets revealed (/’o’)/ swish

          • MichiganerE

            The day this mode gets revealed is the day Valve learns how to count to 3.

    • ben wills

      Probably just changed the menu or it could be pre game vs. menu etc. Condrey unlikely changed his definition of co-op.

  • DEISELDOG83

    already bought the advanced warfare digital pro edition,
    I get 24hr early access plus 14 maps ive got all the dlc 4 the season pass plus a hole lot more PlayStation 4 KICKS ASS

  • i bought the advanced warfare digital pro edition ive got all the dlc 4 the season pass plus a hole lot more PlayStation 4 Is THE BEST

  • hazmat

    i love the character in the image for this, he looks like a freaking purple iron man and its amazing!

  • DamZe

    Nice to see Activi$ion reaching new lows whe it comes to cutting content and selling it in higher priced editions, we have a “bonus” map with the collector’s edition, and 2 exclusive weapons (which we totally didn’t cut out from the main game) int the day zero edition.

    They are releasing less and less maps in the base game. In a year or two they will ship 5 maps, you heard it people 5 great maps on the disk, and the other 7 “bonus” maps are going in the day one sucker edition, and Premium collector’s edition.

    They are getting zero purchases from me, how about that?

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I don’t think they really care if they get 0 purchases from you…

    • Dean Cowan

      Awwwwwwwwww, boo hoo. You get one less standard map. That must be absolutely awful. I feel you, I feel you.

  • Just give us maps that are small to medium sized, no extra large dynamic volcano effects maps, standard small – medium like cod4 or mw2!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Pretty pointless wish, the maps are big.

      • Dean Cowan

        No there not, and with the exo it will feel smaller.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Yeah, but they’re pretty big period with or without Exos. I’m talking about the overall size. The game will suck for the people playing Advanced Warfare traditionally, but it’s good that that feature is in there.

    • Daniel

      Just no, go play BO2 kid.
      Maps must be unique, an diverse with dynamic events

  • ben wills

    So they had 3 years and

    – Less maps than any other release (except maybe WaW)
    – Maps are smaller than other releases (takes far less to work on)
    – Co-op is the same as MW3, just REMOVED spec ops missions

    SHG has to be one of laziest devs ever. As much as 13 good maps > 16 bad ones, the maps so far have just shown to be really small clusterf**ks that won’t encourage skill. This just embarrassing.

    • “Co-op is the same as MW3, just REMOVED spec ops missions” This is what gives me hope there is another, ‘secret’ mode yet to be revealed. The achievements haven’t been set in stone, there was just a list of them posted by IGN. Who knows, maybe there will be 55 of them this time, instead of the traditional 50.

      This could be the evilest marketing trick ever, making everyone believe there isn’t anything new to come. And then Activision would drop the bomb on the launch week. Why would they even go backwards in three years? MW3 had multiplayer, campaign, spec ops and survival. Ghosts had extinction and squads mode.

      …Or then they just took a step backwards and cut off the content. And they’ve definitely focused a lot on the campaign.

      • Juses

        Well that would be terrible marketing if they have a 4th mode and don’t reveal. Also all achievements were revealed and there is no more

        • Like I said:

          “The achievements haven’t been set in stone, there was just a list of them posted by IGN. Who knows, maybe there will be 55 of them this time, instead of the traditional 50.”

          • Juses

            It said final 5 achievements

          • Whoa

            They might add more in (assuming thier is indeed another hidden mode), game comes out in November.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Extinction’s achievements were leaked 3 weeks before the reveal, I think.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Ghosts had Campaign, Multiplayer, Squads, Safeguard, and Extinction. There were 5 modes. So much desperation in one game lol. And a 6 hour Campaign is decent, but not incredible. I wish it was 10 hours.

        • kyr95

          MW2 was 6 hours and it was incredible. Quality over quantity for me. Also, i played Wolfenstein the New Order the other day, ive finished it in 10 hours, and i didnt have complaints even though it was only singleplayer.

          • KuuGeeL

            if only wolfenstein had multiplayer !!!

          • kyr95

            The singleplayer alone was incredible. Maybe on the next game 😉

        • The story has been always good but I find the cod campaign boring to play in some parts 😛

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            The stories since WaW have been meh.

          • Bo1 is my favorite

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Loved Zombies. Though Campaign and MP were decent. Better than MW2, MW3, BO2, and Ghosts, for sure.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            thought*

    • DOINEED2LOGIN

      Youre a retard

    • jooker-jr

      -Cod ghosts = 14 , bo2 = 14.
      So one map is deal breaker for u right ?
      – so you prefer the open mpas of ghosts right ? And really the mpas they’ve shown are medium/ large maps if u compared to previous maps.
      – u judged the game from a 40 seconds clip, u don’t know how they change it, u didn’t watch a gameplay for it and most importantly u didn’t play it.

      And only because the co-op u said they are lazy ??

      EDIT: bo2 has 15 but still…..

      • Daniel

        Bo2 had 15 I believe

        • jooker-jr

          Oops ! A mistake.

    “Get over here…” (by Scorpion)

  • kdog12345

    Hey guys,
    I’m kdog12345, and I have been a Call of Duty fan ever since mw2 came out. Ever since mw3 came out, the last cods that have been released have absolutely sucked. And with the upcoming release of Advanced Warfare, I think if this cod doesn’t succeed, cod is done. As a long time fan, I would hate to see cod go away, so therefore, I have a solution for the next game after Advanced Warfare. One word to describe my idea: simplicity. Thats it. No more jetpacks, no more robot killstreaks, no more exo skeleton suits. My idea is Call of Duty: The Anniversary Edition. This game will feature all of the best guns, killstreaks, maps, game modes,perks, and characters from previous Call of Duty games. All of these things will be voted for by us, the fans, on the call of duty website. There will be a poll for best maps in cod history, and cod will put the top 15 maps voted by the fans into the game. There will be a poll for the best sub machine guns ever, assault rifles, snipers, and so on and so forth. Also, there should be a vote on whether there should be score streaks, point streaks, or killstreaks. I feel that this is an amazing idea, and that if you read this, spread the word. Hopefully this gets to infinity ward, treyarch, or sledgehammer and they will take my idea into consideration. This idea will save cod, and I dont want cod to end, and neither do you.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      All CoDs since World at War have sucked. And I bought them all. FML.

    • MichiganerE

      “I have been a Call of Duty fan ever since mw2”
      “As a long time fan”

      You’re not a long time fan if you’ve only been around since MW2, you’re still considered new.

      • JDahn

        MW2 came out in 2009 and we’re in 2014 ,he’s considered a long time fan.

        • MichiganerE

          No he’s not, it’s only been five years. You have to had with CoD 4 or any of the previous games before that to be a long time fan.

    • Xecho

      You’re not a old fan. A old fan is Cod 4 or before Cod 4.

    • jooker-jr

      Tbh I don’t think its a great idea.

      Proof ? Titanfall. Other than the Titans and the parkour ( I haven’t play the game but it looks easy to master ) and few other things Titanfall is a simple gamr with no kill streaks , death streaks , 1 million guns etc……..

      But people didn’t like it ( some even hated the game ) because there a lot of things to do after even reaching half the ranks ( AKA it’s simple ).

      But I don’t know, maybe simplicity is the ULTIMATE solution for every cod problem but I don’t think it’s a good idea.

      • People, Look Things Up!

        Titanfall had like 10 guns, smgs ars snipers and lmgs included

  • My bet is there will be special rounds with zombies. Assuming we can believe Hayashii and the 4chan guy

  • Slothigans

    If they’re confident with coming out with less maps on release than others before, then the replay value must be very high up there. Can’t wait!

    • Juses

      Haha I remember that

    • MichiganerE

      Meanwhile, I didn’t have any hype at all.

      • Yeah, me neither, that’s why I wasn’t around back then. I remember when I first found out that there was a new cod coming, “ghosts. The colors, the logo and even name already madeit sound like boring for me. But Activi$ision did it again and got me hyped on the last few weeks and I pre ordered it…

    • jooker-jr

      IW had a chance to fix ghosts before.

      But they don’t listen to the community ( like for example increasing the health/reduce the damage, remove IED etc………. ) so that’s why ghosts was and still a bad game.

      EDIT: look at bf4 it was bad at lanuch but because DICE listened and made amazing decisions to the game ( like the CTE servers ) it’s now a very good game.

  • Juses

    LMAO EVILxJUGGERNOG botted the retweets on the 50k tweet go on Twitter audit. He pretty much scammed Sledgehammer

    • That’s what I’ve been saying, it got botted 😛

      But we can’t say for sure if it was him, or someone else. Although his followers and subs are botted too… Shame 🙁

      • Juses

        It was probably him who botted the tweets

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Lolololo I should have believed you.

        • It’s okay 😀

  • J Sama

    Sorry to be Debbie downer.. but I have a few concerns about this game
    Parabolic Mic
    Lock on to players with a stinger that shoots THREE missiles
    Danger Close
    All the new annoying looking “drones” that fly all over the place
    The whole flinch/toughness thing
    No dead silence
    Too many variants of guns(how can you balance 300 guns?)
    65 score Kill Confirmed instead of 100

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      No Dead Silence is good. No Lightweight, Toughness, and Danger Close would have been better. The drones also bother me.

      • J Sama

        Nahh man, Dead Silence is essential IMO. Having Dead Silence promotes movement. That’s a good thing. Remember how Ghosts was before the Dead Silence patch? Corner campers everywhere and hear you from a mile away. I’m sure people still play that way, but a solid Dead Silence perk, makes campers feel uneasy because they can’t hear every single thing around them.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          With loud Exoskeletons, footsteps aren’t as loud, and I disagree, Dead Silence promotes camping more than anything.

          • J Sama

            I agree to disagree. If a camper uses Dead Silence, he’s making his perk choice redundant. Similar to someone using Ghost with an unsilenced weapon. I’d much rather have completely silenced footsteps and go around without being paranoid of someone sound whoring me. Do you even remember MW3 with Sit Rep Pro? It pretty much put the nail in that game’s coffin

          • Having no dead silence, and loud footsteps is definitely a problem in SnR or SnD. It promotes camping, just like J Sama said. You can sit in a corner and easily locate where the enemy is coming from.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          I rush and never use Dead Silence. In fact, I never use Dead Silence in any gamemode except SnD. I always thought there were better perks for me to use my points on. This is a positive for me that Dead Silence isn’t returning because now I can hear everyone, and since I never run that perk, it only helps me out.

      • People, Look Things Up!

        No dead silence is bad…I play nothing but S&D, game battles is going to be so bad now

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Good lol I play public matches DS is op

    • Dean Cowan

      I don’t mind the mic and the drone. It just will reveal people on the map, thus speeding gameplay up. Think how Ghosts catered more to camping, OP stealth pearks etc. That wasn’t fun. With no dead silence, that mic etc. It’s just going to make it even faster. About that Stinger with danger close. You must really bad if you let someone aim square at you for 3-5 seconds. Without being able to kill him, boost out of his lock circle or just runaway.

  • Ryumoau

    13 sounds pretty good, though i think i remember a previous game launching with 16. But so far each map they’ve shown has looked vastly different and unique from one another, which i would gladly take over 16 maps that are pretty bland.

    • Do you have twitter?

      • Ryumoau

        no sorry. i don’t really like social network sites. 🙁

    They should make a survival game mode called ‘Australia’ which is basically just a simulator of living in Australia.

  • Multi-minutes co-op gameplay where are ya? Do ya even exist? I just wonder

  • Daniel

    Less than ghosts and bo2 and this game had more time to be developed.
    Even if they are all good maps it will still get boring way before the first map pack comes out

    • Dean Cowan

      Well actually if all most the maps are good. You’ll probably get less bored. Like in ghosts. The only maps I see in rotation are sovereign, warhawk and strikezone. Playing the same 3 maps all day everyday. If all maps are I’ll want to play them all.

  • Emre

    the games are getting bigger and costs more money but we get less content on the disc. they sell you the other maps with season pass. and the deluded cattle people will buy it every year. also with the pre-order they let you think that you get free stuff.

    • Ryumoau

      what are you even babbling about?

  • Grenada!

    Every year we usually get 14 maps at launch, now we are being forced to buy the collector’s edition to get all 14? WTF has happened to gaming?

    • Dean Cowan

      Doesn’t matter how many, it matters how many are good. I’m pretty sure Ghosts had 14-16 maps(can’t remember). Only 2 were good, maybe 3 if you where in a good lobby. Quality over quanity. So far, from the gameplay videos. All the maps look good or decent.

  • Mikey9835

    I hope the map rotation is on random because people are always going to vote for the smaller maps.

  • CodGenius

    HERE IS WHAT I THINK ABOUT THE 4TH MODE:
    SLEDGE HAMMER IS CO-FOUNDED BY
    MICHAEL CONDREY AND GLEN SCHOIFIELD.
    ITS GOING TO BE SMALL MAP BASED GAME, IN WHICH EVERYONE IS IN THOSE MECH-SUITS.
    THE MAP SMALLER THEN FREE-FALL!
    ONCE THE GAME STARTS EVERYONE WILL HAVE TO FIND A GOOD EXCUSE AS TO WHY THEY WANT A 4TH GAME MODE.
    ONCE EVERYONE HAS THERE EXCUSE, YOU WILL BE RE-DIRECTED TO E WEBPAGE WHERE YOU CAN VENT ALL YOUR BUILT UP EMOTIONS.
    ITS CALLED CHARLIEINTEL.COM

    Hmm Wonder where this is heading #DLC and its got nothing what-so-ever to do with “quality”…….

    • Dean Cowan

      You sure about that? Name one bad looking map from all gameplay we’ve seem. On the other hand count how many good maps are in ghosts with your fingers. Does it even come 3 fingers?

      • SPAWN STAR

        Say what you will but you all know that once the “community” gets hold of this game and does its best to camp/glitch/break the maps then it will be just the same as all the other cods, noob trickshotters spinning off the tallest buildings, ghillie suited campers hiding in the grass with thermal LMG’s , riot shield C4 spammers and whatever new unbalanced noob weapon/perk combos this game throws out then the “BEST EVER” maps you see being played on these vids won’t look quite so rosey in a couple months time.

        That said my point still stands, we are getting less maps for our money.

  • kelton harris

    why didnt they add any maps that involves a little swimming since players
    now can

  • kelton harris

    i would really like to shoot under water also they said they were bringing back old maps but so far only one.I know one thing i dont want just 14.

  • kelton harris

    the last thing is they need to add infected and gungame even if zombies will come back because i like to kill zombs and infected humans.in infected it is also easier to troll or mess around.even though i love zombies i can barely do that and i know one thing for sure i dont want that hellspawn mode cause that sounds boring.this is all my opinion no hating we all have them.

  • jay jaaay

    I loved the modern warfare series and mostly MW3,, perk system was great support was cool if u are a solo player and your against a full clan what can u do Without support be honest and also the specialist thing I loved I guess it stated sense MW3 the assault was great also was the best for me ppl who love MW2 i just say kill 7 and get your nuke game ended where is the fun? I just hope advanced warfare would have good maps

  • How many prestiges are there?
    I myself Really hope theres way more in this CALL OF DUTY
