The rumor of a game mode under the name ‘Hellspawn’ making an appearance in Advanced Warfare has finally been put to rest.

Michael Condrey stated on Twitter it “has no meaning in Advanced Warfare”, confirming the rumor is fake and not credible. The rumor first came to light by a user on Reddit although the post has now been removed. We were able to confirm this was the case prior to the announcement by Condrey as seen here.

  • Thanks for the confirmation, now if everybody would spread THIS info around the internet…

  • “It’s true man!”
    “How do you know?”
    “A guy on reddit said so.”
    “A guy on reddit?….”
    “Yeah, a guy on re-…oh….damn.”

    • kyr95

      I dont suppose youre talking about the famous reddit guy? o.O

      • Just a conversation between a realist and a person who believed Hellspawn was real. Lol

        • kyr95

          I know ๐Ÿ˜›
          I was trying to make a joke, but failed miserably ๐Ÿ˜›

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Well if the concept isn’t real then that makes Exo Survival just as lame as it was before.

    • Sal

      Lol.

    • StaticShockFather

      LOL!!

    • DopeAap

      Everybody on my facebook friendslist

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      This doesn’t mean that the concept is fake, just what it’s called.

  • Seven

    Well at least the possibility of zombies is back.

    • RdJokr

      Dude. Just give it up. Even if Sledgehammer were to have a 4th game mode, Zombies is the last thing anyone in the right mind would think of. Zombies is Treyarch’s territory. If IW hasn’t even attempted to touch it, then Sledgehammer isn’t about to now.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Glad we finally got an answer though ๐Ÿ™‚

  • NextGenNose

    That vine though! l0l

  • Gossyt

    Maybe the name has no meaning but the game mode itself will still be present? Really just clutching at straws here. I want there to be something else, for the time they’ve had on this, there should be…

    • Kill Denied

      No, don’t be an idiot.

      • RdJokr

        Well, Condrey didn’t go straight out and say there is no other co-op mode besides Exo Survival. So you know, he’s got a point. Assuming this mode exists, what Condrey and Schofield just confirmed is that it’s not called Hellspawn. And the word Hellspawn probably won’t show up anywhere in Advanced Warfare, at least at launch anyway.

      • Gossyt

        Well you’d have thought there would be something else wouldn’t you? For their first game they want to make a good impression for all the communities, it’s not just about campaign and multiplayer, I get sick of those after Christmas when all the little kids get it for Christmas. Treyarch has Zombies, IW has Extinction, so Sledgehammer would surely want to make their mark as well, especially for their first game in the franchise, and ‘survival’ doesn’t really sit on the same level as the other two…

    Comn he was just drunk ( อกยฐ อœส– อกยฐ)

    And this is how Glen reacted about the rumor:

    • kyr95

      I cant stop laughing xD

    • jordanxbrookes

      I love Glen and Michael XD

    • NextGenNose

      This is why I love SH / Condrey and Schofield; they’re a bunch of fun nice guys. You don’t see that with IW or Treyarch ๐Ÿ˜›

      • RdJokr

        I would pay to see Mark (Rubin) and Tina, or Mark (Lamia) and Vonderhaar do something like this with each other.
        The chemistry between Condrey and Schofield is unbeatable.

      • fires

        3arc did that deadmanshand trailer, and IW did those April fools gamemodes. I guess you can also count those celeb trailers.

    • kyr95

      “IM BATMANNNNNNN”
      i had to ๐Ÿ˜›

  • LovekillerX

    I knew it was fake and I told you. Exosurvival is the actual co-op and you just have to admit it. And if you don’t like it don’t play it, nobody won’t make you play it without your will.

    • Spodermen

      http://www.reddit.com/r/CodAW/comments/2hukv3/exosurvival_hate_rant/ for anyone who wants to say Exo-survival sucks and they should’ve put in zombies.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        That’s stupid. I’m pretty sure Zombies didn’t become popular because it was easy (Nacht, Verrukt) and it sure as hell isn’t the reason I play zombies to this day.

        • Spodermen

          I’ll give you that, Nacht and Verrukt were good zombie maps, but after them came all the ones with mechanics to make the game easier as you go, like pack a punch, easy training areas, traps, buildables, Wonder-weapons, and some of the best non-wonderweapons (see Thompson M1928, MP40) on the wall.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Nobody plays it because it’s easy, they play it because it’s fun. Half the time when I play Origins with randoms, they can’t get past round 5-10. If all maps had none of what you described, it’d become boring and repetitive. All these elements you listed change the way people play. Adding pack a punch gave people 2 things. It gave them a goal of pack a punching all their weapons, and it makes players think about how they plan on spending their points. Training areas are not map creator’s faults, it’s the community. No matter how they create a map, players will find a way to train, I guarantee it. Buildables changed your playstyle. Some encouraged camping (which is good in zombies), others helped you navigate the map. Traps were introduced because it was impossible to kill zombies at high rounds unless they were there. And of course people want good guns. Nobody wants to use the shittiest guns. The goal of zombies is to either upgrade yourself to the max with the best guns and perks, and go to the highest round possible, or complete the easter egg, which is usually difficult and requires the help of some good weapons. /endrant

          • Spodermen

            The only fun I see in later zombies maps is when you compare your score using guns against enemies who can’t to your friends scores of them doing the same thing.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Wow.

          • Spodermen

            Sorry if I sound mad, I’m just tired of people whining about how co-op is Exovival and how the world will end because of it.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            My rant was about the exo-survival, just people thinking that we only play zombies because it’s easy. Sorry mate, lol. Different opinions, I know, I was just ticked off.

          • kyr95

            Ok, your first sentence is the one ive been looking to find to describe the situation.
            If the co op mode is fun ( even if its only Exo-Survival ), the rest shouldnt matter in my opinion.
            And before we say about MW3’s survival, we havent seen actual gameplay of exo-survival, and we dont know how many additions there are and how fun it is.
            To end with, i just want to say, that to me, a mode that is above all fun, is what matters, and in my opinion, should only matter.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yup, sums up my point. Just ticked me off that they think the only reason people play zombies is because it’s easy. Very closed minded view of it, imo.

          • kyr95

            I mean, isnt the whole point of video games to provide entertainment?
            As long as something is fun ill play it ๐Ÿ™‚

          • For me the co-op in mw3 was fun for about 2 minutes.. What made it that way for me was playing on the same maps as multiplayer, it gave nothing new to the game and ended up being quite campy with no real progression. In Saying this – it’s not going to ruin the game for me, I will try the AW co-op and I hope to be surprised by it. I just thought that given roughly 95% of people I’ve played with played maybe less than 10 games of the mw3 co-op because in their opinion ‘it wasn’t that fun’ and since there is now a 3 year dev cycle, I kind of expected more..

      • DaTrey17

        Anyone that said they should put in zombies is dumb. That is a 3arch thing why would it be here.

      • LovekillerX

        Yeah that’s what I was thinking too. People yell how exosurvival sucks but it is almost like zombies but with different enemies and exo abilities. So what is the difference? Why people complain? I don’t see any major difference between these two.

        Zombies are overrated (my opinion, don’t get mad readers!!) and it is good to have something else than zombies from SHG. Maybe Treyarch brings Zombies next year and also it is Treyarch’s thing so it would have been stupid to have zombies two times in a row.

        I think that this co-op will be fun like Mass Effect 3 multiplayer was. ๐Ÿ™‚ I will give it a chance. So should others. But I don’t care if you don’t give it a chance, atleast I will give it.

        • Spodermen

          Inb4 people start hating at us both for posting your opinion online

        • For me it’s the different challenges on new and innovative maps, and adding in new dynamics and a progression which evolved with each new DLC..

          not just re-hashing the multiplayer maps for co-op

        • Whoa

          Honestly whoever thought it was Zombies is just plain out stupid. Zombies=Treyarch it isn’t that hard to comprehend. Now another type of horror/survival is what I’m waiting for and still strongly believe that they have but are just keeping it on the low low. Yes Exo Survival seems fun (i had a blast with it in mw3 for the first month) but sledgehammers isn’t dumb enough to not add a 4th mode, it’s basically been established it’s a must now for COD.

  • ScOott

    And people still think this mode might exist (face palm) maybe they should of said it like this ” NO EXTRA MODE GET OVER IT!”

    • RdJokr

      And yet they haven’t… So you know, the speculation continues.

      • ScOott

        I think they honestly thought exo survival would be good enough and every one would be happy as they spent so much time on story n multiplayer … I think theirs going to be a lot of disappointed people imo

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Don’t get your hopes up.

        • RdJokr

          I’m not, actually. I’m just saying, until Condrey or Schofield comes right out and say “no 4th game mode”, people are gonna speculate on and on.

  • LovekillerX

    Okay so what we will have today on IGN First? Any guesses? (picture, refresh if not visible)

    • kyr95

      MUst be the singleplayer level.

      • LovekillerX

        Yeah because Tuesday is the day when everything big is being released.

        • kyr95

          Yep. Isnt today the last day of the month, thus the last IGNFirst coverage?

          • LovekillerX

            Yeah but they have couple of stuff to show us before IGN First is over.

          • kyr95

            Sooo, theyll show everything today then? ๐Ÿ˜›

          • LovekillerX

            Well I’m not quite sure. But we will know today what they will show us, if they show us anything. It would be stupid if they wouldn’t show us anything today because today is the last day of this month.

            I really hope that we could see the singleplayer level today. I have waited for another level since it was announced that they will show it. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • kyr95

            Me too ๐Ÿ˜€

          • LovekillerX

            I guess that I will play the campaign multiple times just like I did with other Call of Duty games. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • jordanxbrookes

      BioLab mission I’m guessing.

      • LovekillerX

        Yeah I’m guessing the same and I really hope that is the case for today. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Or Traffic or whatever that mission is called.

    • Kill Denied

      All most half of the game has been revealed, i highly doubt it’s anything major.

      • LovekillerX

        Well according to IGN we will see one more singleplayer level. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Kill Denied

          Cool, thought it was going to be more multiplayer gameplay.

          • LovekillerX

            I think that multiplayer isn’t going to be in highlights anymore. But I can’t tell you for sure how it is. We will see soon.

          • Me123

            The fourth mode is called the ‘settings’

          • RdJokr

            Multiplayer had enough time as it is, now should be time for the campaign to shine! Or even the exo survival mode for that matter.
            Or a certain hidden 4th mode… (say what you will, until Condrey comes right out and say there’s no 4th mode, it’s still up for debate).

      • People, Look Things Up!

        Are you kidding me? Nothing has been revealed…we know not even half the guns ? by this time last year we knew all the guns in ghosts, all the kill streaks and like 90% of the maps….they have showed like 10 guns and half the scorstreaks

        • Kill Denied

          31 of the apparent 35 weapons revealed plus every attachment. All but technically 7/14 maps and all Scorestreaks have been shown.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Please tell me the 31 weapons, with link?

          • Whoa

            It’s like you don’t keep up with advanced Warfare news smh just search it up and watch gameplay.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            And they didn’t announce all scorestreaks…look up when they accidentally leaked the skorestreaks at the gamescom event when I was there, they flashed the full list on accident and then removed it for the few that were usable ? and what about the “nano swarm” that’s in perk descriptions but not yet a scorestreak

          • Kill Denied

            They still revealed it.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            No it leaked…they didn’t reveal it, and no link to the weapons? I didn’t think so

            I assume those are leaked, still not “revealed” but its whatever thanks for the info anyway, which weapons are you most excited for?

          • Kill Denied

            There not leaked they’re were in trailers and so on. The ASM1 and the SAC3, you?

          • People, Look Things Up!

            IMR (was one of “those” kids with the M8A1 ?) and the new Vector (can’t remember name)

            Those all haven’t been revealed. We just no the names. We don’t know what some of them look like or play like or anything

          • Josh

            All maps have been revealed through the trailers.

          • Chris B

            31 weapons ? Where have u seen 31 weapons? We’ve fully seen about what.. 4 maps? We’ve seen short clips of da few others. And that is not all of the kill streaks either. There’s still the nano swarm which in curious to see. And I’m sure a few others.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I think it’s going to be a mashup thing, like when they revealed co-op, they had some SP beforehand. So a supply drop montage + an AW gear montage, and then separately or at the end is a play through of biolab. It’s the last day of September, so I would assume they go all out.

    • Michael

      A supply drop montage sounds cool. I would love to see a montage on that because there’s 350 different weapon variations (I’m pretty sure but correct me if I’m wrong) in the game through supply drops. So I would love to see that in a breakdown video from IGN.

    • Josh

      The word “Hellspawn” may not be in Advanced Warfare but that doesn’t mean the concept is fake. It could just me named something else!

      • People, Look Things Up!

        If exo-survival is it I’m done, this mode is such a troll

        • StaticShockFather

          Calm down your still gonna get the game regardless

          • People, Look Things Up!

            You’re right I’ll buy it, the question is if I’ll keep it for more than a week

          • MichiganerE

            You’ll probably keep it like most will. With Ghosts, a majority of people claim they don’t like it, yet they kept playing it. I’m in the minority that actually gets rid of games they don’t like.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Actually I didn’t, I tried playing game battles for a little then just resorted to BO2 again

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I haven’t touched a CoD game in months. The franchise in its current state is utterly atrocious.

          • Guest

            Then why are you here? It’s a CoD based forum, i’m not trying to be mean, i’m just curious is all.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It’s here for posting opinions.

          • MichiganerE

            Then you’re in the minority.

          • Whoa

            Lol no. The majority of the people actually stopped playing ghost and Traded it back.

          • MichiganerE

            Even though most people here have said it’s boring, yet kept it?

          • Grenada!

            Ghosts has a lower player base than BO2, MW3 and even BO1. It’s fair to say that most people got rid of Ghosts. I kept mine for Extinction and that was it, haven’t touched the MP since March. So basically if AW MP sucks, I will be getting rid of the game since I only played MW3 survival twice and hated it and this Exo_Survival looks the same.

          • xX Hyper Xx

            How the fuck was I supposed to get rid of it? I paid $60. I’m not giving it to fuckstop for $2

          • MichiganerE

            You can use this wonderful thing call Amazon. Seriously, don’t use excuses.

            bwahaahahahahahahahahahahahaha

          • Grenada!

            He may buy it but he may not like the game as much because o the shitty CO-OP mode. I’m pissed that it’s Exo-Survival but hey, the MP might be decent.

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        You look like one of those conspiracy theorists…

        Hellspawn “is” the mode itself. If it were true, I don’t think that they would even comment on that.

    • RdJokr

      I’m a bit torn at the moment. On one hand, I want to see more of the campaign. But on the other hand, I’m afraid they’ll reveal too much. The game only has like 14 campaign missions, and we’ve seen 2 already (3, if some people got the chance to see Biolab). Here’s hoping this is the Biolab footage, so we don’t get spoiled too much.

      • fires

        Just dont look at AW reveal stuff. I haven’t seen anything besides the multiplayer reveal, exo survival reveal, and about half of the first campaign mission they revealed. Im FORCING myself to not spoil anything, that, and im pumped for all the other fall release games, smash bros comes out friday ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Campaign could reveal hint at mode 4!

  • As much as I would like Hellspawn to be a thin'(and I don’t mind co-op survival bein’ the actual co-op mode), it was an interrestin’ idea nonetheless. Can still not wait til’ the game ships ^^

    • kyr95

      Thats the positive attitude! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Heh, thanks ^^ It’s unfortunate that more people ain’t lookin’ towards the good side and rather complain about what they don’t get >.>”

  • Jhonatan Orlando Ferro

    But yes, will have species of zombies in Exo Survival.

    • Guywithbrains

      Starts with E and ends to L, no zombies mode but it may have zombies… secret bonus wave maybe? I don’t know but that is what that leak guy said.

      • Jhonatan Orlando Ferro

        thats right

        • Guest

          U guys are slow … Exo survival may be? Just a guess .. Have to wait for official confirmation .. Hold on w8 … ? :-/

          • Guywithbrains

            We know it is called Exo survival. I was talking about what is that so called bonus wave. If you haven’t heard about it, now you did. So I’m not sure who is the slow one here…

  • lol

  • GUEST

    I still believe there has to be a secret 4th game mode

  • Trippy Killa

    Cyborgs for the win

    • Stefan

      Cyborgs are in COD Online. Raven is helping with COD Online and Advanced Warfare so there is a possibility this could be Raven’s unannounced involvment with AW. Maybe a port of the mode in AW.

  • TBD

    So.. what is the 4th mode called then? ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Stefan

    Bleh, I dont care too much for co op outside of Treyarch games anyways. It’s just the MP and DLC that HAS to deliver.

  • Tristan Elliot Palmer

    I have a feeling that when he says “Hellspawn” has “no meaning”, he means if said gamemode does exist it might be under a different name? I do hope, more for Sledgehammer Games’ sake, this is a thing simply because if all we’ve seen of AW is everything then they haven’t exactly utilised their three years well enough.

  • Stefan

    To be honest, I’d rather have Exosurvival than anything. Having waves of enemies that’s gonna fight back is great. It keeps you into the game and not getting bored. Honestly, when I found out how to get high rounds in zombies they became boring. Its like after you’re all perked up with 3 pap’d weapons it’s pointless. Especially maps with banks, once you max out there is nothing left for you to do but survive. I literally used to stand in front of Jug on Buried with 3 pap’d weapons and get 40 rounds easily on solo. Could have went longer but it gets boring. Exosurvival should be fun. I honestly feel like Sledgehammer would have ruined zombies if they did it. If it aint broke dont break it. Just wait for Treyarch. Just be glad this game is turning out to be everything Ghosts wasn’t and that you dont have to deal with that shit for another year.

    • Michael

      Agreed. Exo survival is a copy and paste of Mw3’s survival but with exos. Mw3’s survival was pretty fun. Zombies does get boring at high rounds because of the PAP guns you have, and the camping spots you stay in to get to high rounds. Exo survival on the other hand is different cause the waves of enemies change each round (for example: cloaked enemies would be in one round, and the next round could have goliaths.) Also, waves of enemies come in different directions with guns which makes it a challenge. Even though I love zombies I want change and that’s what advaced warfare has brought us thus far.

      • Guywithbrains

        I would like to have the co-op mode story based. Specially Extinction episodes got even better. I want something like that, although it might be impossible for MW3 kind of survival.

        • Michael

          A story would be cool, but I don’t see it working for exo survival. Maybe there’s spec op missions that SH didn’t tell us yet that some how these missions tie up with the campaign mode or survival mode. Who knows but that would be pretty cool.

          • Guywithbrains

            There are some rumors about 4th mode. (Now hold on before judging!!!) I don’t believe these rumors but some horde mode or spec ops missions reveal just before the game release would be pretty cool.

            Now I am wondering if we are not going to see any gameplay from co-op before the release?

          • Michael

            I don’t think we’ll see gameplay until a week before the games release. Extinction was releaed a week before ghost came out so who knows.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Zombies was boring? At least you could change your strategy, and there was unique DLC in it. There’s nothing they could do with DLC for Exo Survival besides Multiplayer DLC.

        If I wanted to play against humans, I’d play the other modes. This was Sledgehammer’s time to shine, and they failed miserably. With their experience with Dead Space, they could have made something that was actually worth playing. Exo Survival is not.

        • Michael

          Zombies did get boring after a while. For me, once I hit round 30 or higher I would wanna down myself but at the same time I didn’t want to cause I know I can go higher. What they could do for exo survival is make new streaks, perks, exo abilities, etc. etc. for dlc offers. Exo survival will be enjoyable for me. If I wanna play zombies I’ll either play waw, bo1 or bo2. We’ve had enough zombies already. Survival showed up once in cod. This is just my opinion.

          “Maybe it’s a mode under a different name.”
          “Who knows.”

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            ??

          • Tricky VIk

            “Yeah, think about it, it sounds fun, or it could be a sub mode within co-op, giving you the option to fight zombies, humans, demons, hell I dunno, but it sounds like a neat idea!”

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Who are you quoting?

          • Tricky VIk

            “I write like this, big habit, won’t stop.”

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            oh oke

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Oh nevermind. It’s not going to happen.

          • Tricky VIk

            “Oh well, but it’s fun to speculate.”

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      It’s just humans. If I wanted to play against humans, I’d play Multiplayer or Campaign. Zombies is far more entertaining than Survival.

      • fires

        thats YOUR opinion. And you’re entitled to that. IMO, i cant play zombies past round 20 because of how repetitive it feels to kill zombies, yet i can play survival til the end of time, Spec ops too for that matter

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Okay, then. I can’t play Survival because of how repetitive it gets on round 1.

          Spec Ops – don’t make me mention that garbage mode lol. All it was was rehashed Campaign missions.

  • MeisseN

    Nah it’s way too fake. COD game modes are named in a rather traditional way like Team Deathmatch, Domination, Capture the Flag, Demolition, etc. There aren’t even fancy names like Scavenger in BF3. And it doesn’t sound like a name for a mode either

  • Jovan VanRemmen

    Michael Condrey never said Advanced Warfare, he just said Advanced. That’s it.

    • jooker-jr

      He’s acting suspicious.

      • Guywithbrains

        ^ TOO suspicious.

    • RdJokr

      Actually, he said #AdvancedWarfare. Check on the Vine video description.

    • Keshav Bhat

      No, he said Advanced Warfare on the Vine, but twitter character count limitation cut it off

  • jooker-jr

    Plot twist : they just changed the name.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Hell Respawn.

      • ScOott

        Are they not in ghosts ?

      • jooker-jr

        He said “hellsapawn” , they will rename it to hell spawn.

  • WTEO

    Figured it was all a bunch of BS. Would have been cool to see, but I figured it would have been “too edgy” for the casual COD audience due to the religious aspect of it. Would have been way too risky of a move.

  • ScOott

    Go to YouTube and type out 9lives watch his latest video … The final wave in exo survival could be zombies he talk about leaks that have happend n come true check it out it seems like it could be the case.. I didn’t believe it till I watched it

    • Didn’t they say that there was no final wave in exo and that the rounds were infinite? I mean the highest the devs got to was 60 something from memory..

      • ScOott

        I don’t actually believe their is… Just for the conspiracy theorist out their but if I was going to believe anything it would be from this video .. But I’m sure it’s been confirmed there’s a wave that they can’t talk about or something when they where giving an interveiw about it I think

  • wh0_cares

    What they should do is have a secret menu on the main screen called hellspawn or something that only shows on April first and when you click it a message comes up saying April fools or something cool/funny

  • People, Look Things Up!

    This game is now a joke….no dead silence pretty much kills Search and Destroy because it will just be camping or crouch walking and if you don’t do one of those you will be sound whored ( I have Astros myself but hate that the battlefield will be so loud and annoying) ?on top of that the co-op mode is awful and a rehash of a game mode nobody played the first time

    • Potato Republic

      So, I’m guessing you’re gonna be one of ‘those’ who gonna cancel their pre-order?

      • People, Look Things Up!

        Not necessarily, I’m a competitive player and I play a lot of GB and UMG and they are ruining Search and Destroy in this game when I’ve played nothing but that since World at War

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          How do you know it’s ruined? You haven’t even played it yet.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Actually I have, I was at gamescom, wasn’t able to use my Astros or scuf but could still tell even by game play that footsteps are annoyingly loud and with the full perk list already revealed as of August there is no dead silence

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            They had S&D @Gamescom? Haven’t seen any gameplay. I wad going to say it was maybe built in for competitive. They said they have a solution for it. If the solution doesn’t work well, they’ll probably patch it in.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            As I already said, it was not at gamescom, and they haven’t showed anything else about it

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Okay, so how do you know? You haven’t played S&D.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            I already know dead silence doesn’t exist….you ever try playing S&F in ghosts without dead silence? You get sound whored every corner and it drives me insane to hear myself. If no one remember when Ghosts first came out Dead Silence didn’t include silent sliding and people complained about that till it was changed, imagine being constantly audible

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Plus Search won’t be competitive this game…they know they screwed S&D so it won’t be a competitive mode this year, Puckett talked about what modes he thinks will make it

          • People, Look Things Up!

            I honestly don’t know if I even want this game anymore…the game looked good but with no dead silence like I said, Search is ruined ? last year they showed Search and Rescue game play early but nothing on Rescue or Destroy game play wise this year because they know they messed up!

          • mountkarma

            If the devs wanted to do this game right, especially for competitive, they would take out all of the stupid perks or significantly cut them down. These games are just a load of fluff for casual gamers.

          • mountkarma

            additionally hearing footsteps and knowing where someone is on the map is the way its supposed to be. If the sound is done well then you should be able to know exactly where they are. Hence it makes walking / running used only in certain instances. If you need reference for a game that does this well just look at Counter Strike.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Why do you think I play CoD over Counter Strike? I played it once on my friends pc and with no experience just because I had my Astros I dropped 15 kills in Bomb Scenerio just by hearing people, makes the game to easy when everyone can be heard, thus it would ruin a game mode that’s been in since CoD 4

          • mountkarma

            hmm.. were you playing ranked csgo? Against what ranks? Lol because I have a itching feeling that you dont really know what your talking about. CSGO is one of the hardest games to get good at, learning recoil patterns in that game makes COD look like a baby matching block shapes.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Like I said I played it once and my friend set me up on it, I heard people, crouched, and tapped the mouse…15 easy kills, without dead silence I’m done with CoD! I have the Atlas Pro Edition pre ordered and I’ll see at launch what they change, if nothing start checking your neighborhood trash cans because you might find my copy in there

          • mountkarma

            No fps should have dead silence, i think you need to find a new genre.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            You’re wrong, not having dead silence ruins a game template that has been this way since 2007 when dead silence was in CoD 4….stop being a counter strike fan boy

          • mountkarma

            Listen up kiddo, I’ve been playing COD since vanilla. Do you even get that reference? Probably not. Probably because you started playing when MW2 came out. With each new iteration of the game since MW2 the game has added more and more unnecessary perks and other things that make the game fun for casual 15 year old’s like yourself. I bring up CSGO because currently Valve is the dev doing things right. What your saying about dead silence is really a joke, as a multiplayer facet its existed solely in like two recent COD games. GTFO

          • People, Look Things Up!

            You’re a joke, I’ve been playing since launch of CoD 5, and I’m 18 look at you trying to justify your answers with age shut up scrub all your comments are “COUNTERSTRIKE IS GOD”

          • mountkarma

            COD5 … hahahahah your a clown, stay in school and get an education.

            I can reference CSGO all I want when comparing it to another fps game which by the way I’ve played since the original PC version. Mind you was not on console back then.

            If i need to continue to throw out additional COD credentials just to show you how low on the gamer totem-pole you are, I was CAL-M (which was the highest level) for COD:UO and played on DIvine Talent, SgT as well as Link. The league and the teams are no longer around but veterans of competitive COD gaming will recognize them.

            You haven’t the slightest clue about what your talking about. You know nothing about what’s at the core of a multiplayer fps.

            Your just some 18 year old who probably is in desperate need to get laid.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            You call me a desperate 18 year old, yet every bash you make involves sexual life or age, you’re an immature middle aged man who’s going through a mid life crisis and has to bash a young adult to feel good, keep clinging for interest in your life I’m gonna go back to studying old man

            And you’re obviously to old to remember what you learned in school so allow me to help you with your grammar, when telling me something I am the correct form is *you’re, you used “your” which shows possesion, so I apparently own a clown

          • mountkarma

            Great job picking out a grammatical error. I see an awesome future for you being a turd.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Allow me to help you again, *an amazing
            You use an before a vowel

          • mountkarma

            lol might want to refresh that page because I caught that before you did.

          • Whoa

            It’s the internet. No need to be a grammar nazi because your points are invalid.

          • And it also promotes camping which if Ghosts is anything to go on – pretty much almost ruined the series for me

          • People, Look Things Up!

            All you do is complain about CoD and praise Counter Stike (look at your comments trying to tell Sledge Hammer to do what Valve does), they are two different games…get off CharlieINTEL and go suck up to Valve, you’re a dead bug on the windshield of CoD and you need to be washed off

          • You’re full of shit yo. No one especially hardcore cod fans complains about a game being too easy.

          • Ryumoau

            please don’t buy it. One less dumb crybaby will only make the game’s playerbase that much better. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Don’t worry you won’t see me, pubs are to easy I stick to Gamebattles anyway

          • People, Look Things Up!

            I don’t need to play Search to know that if they don’t put dead silence or something exclusive to Search then it will become a dead game mode for poor kids with no headsets

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Why don’t you just wait till the game releases before you start crying about it? Seriously, you’ve just been spamming me complaining. They could easily patch it in. Grow up.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            No one is crying…you’re the one complaining about “spamming” when I responded to you a total of 3 times and only because you responded back, you commented to me I didn’t comment to you so shut and and quit being a bi*** little kid

          • Whoa

            Why are you catching feelings on the internet? Kids these days…..

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I was offline and got like 3 replies from you just complaining.

          • Let’s hold that for when we get the game. Who knows how load footsteps might be.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Have you not watched any gameplay? Footsteps are louder than Ghosts….

          • Yeah exactly. So how is this gonna suck for people without headsets? It’s going to be easier for casuals to get the necessary info to at least have a chance against headset users.

          • swag

            I don’t ever play pubs so I won’t encounter “casuals” I’m worried about game battles where everyone has a headset and no one will move and even if they do they will just crouch walk

          • That’s not going to happen. The exos offer a fighting chance against campers now. You can boost strafe around a corner with a shotgun. Or boost is from a double jump, not to mention the slew of equipment you can use. You’ll always have at least 2 counters to campers.

    • jooker-jr

      Do u know what Michael Condery said about dead silence ?

      • People, Look Things Up!

        He said “we will do something” not much hope in that

        • jooker-jr

          He first said that cod AW will be better without dead silence but because most cod players like judging a game before it released so they complained ( as always )

          Then he said that they are working on a solution and If didn’t work then they will just bring back dead silence.

  • Mr Mc BICHENN

    He said it “hellspawn” had nothing to do with advanced warfare, yet he didn’t say anything about their not being another game mode…

    • Rabiddddddd

      By that logic we could have a 7th gamemode that has dinosaur dildos as weapons, because y’know, he didn’t say so.

      • Mr Mc BICHENN

        But because your an immature 15 year old that’s the thing you think of when I say something rational and that could possibly happen

    • jooker-jr

      Hmmmm….. Condery is acting suspicious.

  • LovekillerX

    IGN First in couple of minutes?

  • Ryumoau

    lol now i just need to wait to see the second wave of crybabies who let another rumor get them falsely hyped.

  • jooker-jr

    Tbh I’m glad that it’s just a rumor because they already announced a round based gamemode ( Exo survival ) so hellsapawn will simply not fit.

    • By that logic, Squads and Safeguard make Extinction not fit in Ghosts then.

      • jooker-jr

        I actually didn’t know that there’s a gamemode called safeguard until 5 days ago.

        But still I think that safeguard was no were near as popular as Extiction so IMO they wasted their time.

        And I think squads is not a round based gamemode.

      • Extinction isn’t round based, it’s a wave defense across various objectives. You can’t train through the whole map, or the drill will be damaged if you leave.

  • Choppabro2psn

    It does sound like this third mode is a troll, and that they’re hiding something. If not, so be it.

  • Guywithbrains
    • Kill Denied

      Nothing new, just armor looking pure sex.

  • ShankSquadIII

    Don’t jump to conclusions, Michael Condrey said it wasn’t in #Advance. I know he ran out of characters on twitter but he would of said AW instead of Advance. They might be trying to throw us off course so it can be a surprise on launch day!

  • MrNick

    Hi guys i finally created a account so i could discuss with you guys!! What this also could mean is they changed the name of the 4th game mode to something different. So that they could say that the name Hellspawn had nothing to do with AW.

    • Fuck off. It ain’t happening. Quit beating the dead herd.

  • WasabeJuice

    It can be that “hellspawn” is a bait or a recon for feedback. Citing COD ghosts game modes, there should be another AW game mode not released ‘coz SP-SP, MP-MP, Squads-ExoSurvival, and Extinction-?. …Stand by.

  • I don’t understand why everyone is so upset about this exo-survival mode. Why do we NEED zombies, aliens, monsters, etc? It seems like exo-survival will be a fun distraction from multiplayer.

  • TheShadowReaper

    suddenly people are arguing with themselves if they’ll keep playing the game for more than a month just because a mode that was fake was confirmed as fake. they completely disregard campaign, MP (and even Exo-Survival itself). no, no! these 2 (or 3) are not the reason they got hyped up about the game and pre-ordered it! it was a mode that they had heard about a week now that sparked their interest.

    fucking idiots. grow up a little, will ya?

  • Tricky VIk

    “Oh well, we should be happy with what we get, well depending on people if it’s worth 60 dollars for them, it is for me, butttttt I was thinking, what if there is something but Hellspawn ain’t the name, just a speculation, because why, because it’s fun to imagine.”

  • Well shit.

  • DarthDan97

    Surprise Surprise.. Glad the devs are actually confirming what is fake and what isn’t.. *cough treyarch cough*

  • Sadat Kasaija

    I don’t understand this obsession with a secret mode that is hopefully like zombies or is zombies, aliens and monsters… why can’t the exo-survival be it/enough, it’s essentially the same idea just with a different aesthetic. I personally hope they (SHGames) stick to their own take on things. We need progression in the series, let it happen.

    • Gossyt

      Because for those who enjoy the Co-Op mode more than the SP and MP, Exo Survival seems like a step back. It doesn’t look exciting, just the same maps, guns and everything. Only change is the occasional task to keep the game going but there’s only so far that can go. It doesn’t seem to have the replay value that Zombies/Extinction has. What makes those interesting is that there are original maps/story/guns that make it different from the rest of the game. If it’s just the same, then people won’t be keen. It’s a step down if Survival is all there is in AW.

      • Sadat Kasaija

        Okay I sympathize on that note but to my point, I don’t care that the community wants SHGames to be predictable and have something similar to zombies or extinction… That’s how you end having the same thing every year and that doesn’t do anyone any favors. I do hope the game does have enough for everyone to enjoy though.

  • J4MES

    I doubt there is a ‘secret’ mode coming. I know Extinction was announced very late in the day last year but Advanced Warfare pre-orders are significantly down and the game is expected to sell 3m copies less to retail than last year. With this taken into account; why would Sledgehammer withhold a vital selling point at such a critical time leading to release? They need all the orders they can get and will no significant further info about co-op; I think we’ve seen the lot that’s on offer.

    Also IGN mysteriously cancelled their multi-minute IGN First co-op gameplay just a day after the uproar probably under Sledgehammer’s orders to avoid people cancelling their pre-orders as was threatened on social media. If there was a new mode that could entice people to pre-order/purchase; I’m sure it would have been revealed now.

    There is too many clickbait vids on YouTube and false dawns on other sites rife with rumours but don’t get hyped for something that probably doesn’t exist.

    does anyone notice that he did not say anything about how there was no 4th game mode? he only said there was no hellspawn mode……

    well ill give exo survival a try but I would really want zombies in the game I don’t want just one wave of zombie that would be a joke and a waste of their time.

  • alex
  • Mike123

    Dude for all we know hellspawn could be real and there just lying because there are a lot of game confirmed fake or gamemode a but at the end they end being real but the zombie thing in exo is suppose to be a teaser so if the hellspawn is not real they will make a zombie mode or something but who knows we need to wait and see guys ??
