It appears folks with early copies of Advanced Warfare just received an update that added Ground War (9v9) to the Call of Duty Advanced Warfare the playlist.

Also, leaked box art for last gen consoles confirm Xbox 360 and PS3 will only support 2-12 players, similar to Ghosts last year. So it looks like Ground War will only be available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC again. We’ll keep you posted if we hear more…

    Cool!!#HYPETRAIN

  • Rorke File

    I thought the new engine could support that for last gen

    • Primey_

      Pssst. It’s not a new engine.

      • JoZer805g

        Ghosts engine was just heavily modified to support current gen consoles. But for AW, not sure if it is using a new engine or not.

        • Primey_

          It’s always the same engine. No matter what CoD game they’ll always use the same engine but with enhancements. Just look: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IW_engine.

          It will never be a completely new engine because they can’t risk doing that such of a drastic change.

          • Are We Not Young God?

            Never use Wikipedia as a source you already lose credibility.

          • gyz

            Charlieintel is not Harvard

          • Partyin’ Pete

            It is the same base engine, however ~90% WAS rebuilt from scratch to support AW. I’m sure you’re trolling/getting a nice chuckle from puppetting around insane fanboys, but I just wanted to clear that up.

          • Are We Not Young God?

            It’s common sense. Kids in elementary are taught at a young age not to trust wikipedia since anybody can make an account and edit the information on there.

          • Primey_

            How cute. Can’t take the truth that your little precious Call of duty is using the same shit engine over and over?

          • Are We Not Young God?

            Ignorance at bliss.

      • Daniel

        It is

        • Primey_

          No it’s not. It’s the same previous engine with enhancements. When a CoD dev says new they mean the old engine with a lot of code edited so that it seems basically new but it’s not technically new. Deep down they are STILL using a Modified version of id Tech 3.

          This happened with Ghosts.

          • JKB98

            Unfortunately, SHG really went out of there way to try and prove that it was an engine started from scratch. “Brand new engine” Pfft.

          • Gump

            It is a new engine. The only thing that ins’t new is a couple marks of coding to make it still sort of feel like Call Of Duty. Plus, if it looks this good and it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it.

          • Primey_

            It’s not a new engine. Do you enjoy eating the lies these devs feed you?

          • Gump

            Is Battlefield Hardline a new engine? No, somehow they even managed to make it look worse… If it looks this good and isn’t buggy like crazy, then why would it even need a new engine. Ghosts was a lie about a new engine, but this, no.

          • Primey_

            I don’t know why you brought up Hardline. CoD AW does not have a new engine.

          • Gump

            Believe what you want, the outcome will not change though.

          • Are We Not Young God?

            Well it has to have some old coding to give it that call of duty feel or else it might as well be a different game. So even though a good 90% of the engine is brand new and they still have a good 10% of the old it’s a new engine by gaming standards. All gaming engines do this. Frostbite 2, frostbite 3. Unreal Engine 4, unreal engine 4 every engine has some old coding in it to make it what it is. They are all considered new engines still even though they have some old coding.

          • jordanxbrookes

            It’s not a new engine. It may have a new graphics engine, but that’s about it.

          • Gump

            If you pay attention to the little things, like for instance the famous yellow hardhat, or even cars, it is not at all in Advanced Warfare because the new engine allows them to easily put in the new premade things.

            -Side note- GJ on the videos.

    • spartanelite

      They can’t change the engine, the day they do it’s not Cod anymore

      • Rorke File

        This game has a new engine so they can fix it I thought

        • spartanelite

          No they have to keep it they said it was like 90% new and 10% of the old parts of it were kept in

  • jordanxbrookes

    Oh dear, people on 360 and PS3 won’t like this. I’m on Xbox One so yay for me.

    • I’m content with it. In bo2 it was full of kiddy quickscopers and I refuse to even touch ghosts.

    • Same:)

    • Billy Bedlam

      im on the one whats ur gamer tag maybe we can slaps some scrubs around:D

  • Jugg

    Why next gen ffs… I mean, i’m getting it on next gen but it’s just spawn trap galore.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Because the Xbox Two and PlayStation 5 aren’t out yet.

      • kyr95

        Darn it!

    • Primey_

      …The PS4 & X1 are no longer called next gen.

    • TheShadowReaper

      current gen as PS4, XBoxOne and PC.

      • Tricky VIk

        “You know what I realized?”
        “When people were trying to abbreviate Xbox One to Xbone, I always read it as X-bone, like an insult to the console.”
        xD

    • Ryumoau

      spawn trap?

  • Mitch

    Was to be expected.

  • So we are referring to next-gen as current gen now..I was confused for a second there.

    • Ground war confirmed for PS5 in 2020

      • big_smoov

        Their won’t be a PS5 sony stop development on it

        • AC

          Yeah I heard this too.

        • Oh noes.. 🙁 (Sadface)

        • Justin

          It’s only a rumor, I call total bullshit on it. With the success of the PS4 they have absolutely no reason not to go ahead with a PS5.

    • Primey_

      Next gen becomes current gen when it releases. Next gen means it comes out in the next generation which doesn’t apply to the ps4/x1 because they are released aka current.

    • “Next-Gen” has been Current-Gen since Nov. 15th 2013

      • Right, but most people were still referring to Xbox One and PS4 as Next gen until recently.

    • if they said old gen then yes, it’s 360 & ps3 but, Current Gen / Next Gen is xbox 1 and PS4 so if you ether have the XB1 or the PS4 you get to play ground war.

  • LovekillerX

    Good to see this coming back for current gen. I own PS4 so this won’t be a problem at all! 🙂

      • k5berry

        Obvioud troll. In this article alone there’s been 3 guest comments with memes making fun of CoD. Just ignore ’em and don’t give them the time of day

        • TheShadowReaper

          yeah but too late, unfortunately…too late.

    • TROLL TIDE

      exactly why youre a guest right?

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      How is it dumbed down? So far theres way more features than Titanfall had.

      • Guest

        Advanced Warfare has less content than Titanfall does now.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Titanfall’s been out for a year. And even then..

          • TheShadowReaper

            TF’s not even build on the same engine…lets start with that and end up to AW having more than double the content TF does. his stupidity and ignorance is extreme.

          • Can we be friends?

          • TheShadowReaper

            depends. on many many things. are you a fan of reason, logic and facts? if you answered yes in the previously mentioned then i guess we can do this shit…

          • TheShadowReaper

            are you on Steam?

            give me a shout when you do. you can easily find me here on CI. also, if you need any help with building your tower, ask me. i might be able to help you sort what parts to get depending on what you want to do with it.

          • Guest

            Titanfall is run on a brand new engine. COD is still running off of one built back in 2005. No wonder it looks poor and feels dated.

          • jordanxbrookes

            The Source engine isn’t brand new, just give up mate, you failed.

          • TheShadowReaper

            you ignorant fool! TF runs on a heavily modified version of the base Source engine of 2013! (the latest iteration) which was build back in 2004! same as COD’s ID Tech 3! x)

          • Guest

            Titanfall has been out for 7 months. Respawn have added so much that AW feels really bland.

          • Aymen Skiken

            what did they add ? co-op ? already in aw there’s even two co-op modes (1 hidden)

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            It feels really bland? Tell me more about how you’ve played the full game against other players.

        • I call bullshit, even if it’s true, the games been out for 8-9 months you tool.

        • jordanxbrookes

          AW has three shotguns, Titanfall has one. Titanfall has less content than AW. Get Rekt.

          • Guest

            3 shotguns is nothing for a FPS. It’s embarrassing that you’re defending a game like AW when it has less content that Titanfall. AW is nothing more than a cheap clone with a COD label on it. Sledgehammer have mugged everyone off and I can’t wait to trade my copy in.

          • jordanxbrookes

            LMAO If three shotguns is nothing for an FPS, then how’s Titanfall for an FPS when it only has one? Face it mate, your trolling sucks. Next.

          • Guest

            Titanfall isn’t about shotguns. It’s about long range combat on vastly beautiful maps. There is no CQC in Titanfall. Simple

          • Gump

            You have you “long range combat” with you’re 6 guns.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Long range combat? With your 2 ARs? AW still has more.

          • Ryumoau

            stop trolling and get a life already.

          • Daniel

            AW is being in development since 2011, its different, and has way more content. Titanfall even copied the exo survival recently
            So stfu and gtfo

        • Ryumoau

          you really are stupid aren’t you? I don’t recall Titanfall having both a campaign and co-op mode to accompany its multiplayer. Not to mention the amount of customization options AW has over Titanfall.
          retards like you are the reason i hate that Discuss even allows guest accounts to comment.

          • TheShadowReaper

            yep, completely agree.

        • Rishab Chakravarthy

          Are on fucking crack?

          Do tell me more about the game that has like 10 weapons total, less game modes, and no campign.

    • Only one cure for this deranged mind.

      • TheShadowReaper

        yes, lobotomy.

        • beardie97

          So, we are here:
          Titanfall NEW ENGINE vs AW OLD ENGINE, wtf!? WRONG
          Titanfall MORE CONTENT vs AW only 3 shotguns, wtf!!?? Titanfall has only 1!!!!
          But Titanfall focused on med-long range… WTF!!?? Still much less weapons!!
          Titanfall NEW ENGINE GOOD GRAPHICS vs AW OLD ENGINE SHITTY GRAPHICS… MORE WTF!! AW literally KILL Titanfall on sound and graphics…
          Result: do not feed the troll, please.

          • TheShadowReaper

            you could use more exclamation points. i approve!

        • Screencap a class titled Solid Snake then.

    • Tricky VIk

      “People still fail to see that AW was in development before Titan Fall.”

    • AW’s development started before Titan fall you fricken moron -_-

  • TheShadowReaper

    i’m hoping that one day they do more than just dom and tdm in ground war. gets repetitive as shit.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Black Ops 2 had Kill Confirmed in Ground War, so maybe Momentum could be in it. Definitely understand the repetitiveness of it.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Momentum would be extremely fun in ground war. I might actually play ground war if they had that.

        • Tricky VIk

          “Guess who’s playing Ground War..”
          “Not me.”
          ;__;
          -only has a PS3-

          • It’s Mr. Quote everything is back. Why the hell to you keep quoting all your comments? It makes no sense at all and makes you seem like a literature geek -_-

          • Tricky VIk

            “Cause I can, and I wish you a good day fellow poster.”

          • You are so weird. I’m surprised you are interested in Call of Duty. You seem like someone that studies all day and writes a bunch. I respect you good sir, but what legit reason do you have for quoting your comments?

          • Tricky VIk

            “I do study, and I enjoy Call of Duty, my reason may not seem legit to most, but a long while ago I used to be into role play and whatnot, so this habit came into play, and it’s programmed into my fingers, I do it unconsciously, so while it may be appealing to you I’ll still do it, but yes I really do enjoy Call of Duty, I hope to make some comrades for PS3.”
            “Oh and about being weird, we’re all alittle weird, and what’s not weird to you is weird to someone else, but in a sense that if it applies to a general public then weirdness wouldn’t exist, I find it complicated in a sense, either way, I respect you too, we’ll be good friends one day.”

      • TheShadowReaper

        yeah i forgot about KC in BO2’s GW. lets hope they include more than just Momentum alongside TDM and DOM. GW is what i like to play cause i’m used to more than just 12 players in a map. you can blame COD4’s and WaW’s modded 32 man maps for that.

      • laface

        It would be nice if they had cranked in ground war on Ghost. imo

        • jordanxbrookes

          Ghosts? What is this “Ghosts” you speak of?

      • Billy Bedlam

        mw3 had kill confirmed as well

        • jordanxbrookes

          But it wasn’t in Ground War.

          • Billy Bedlam

            yea it was, there was tdm, dom and kc

          • jordanxbrookes

            Was it? Oh, my bad then.

          • Billy Bedlam

            all good brother, been a while for some people:D

      • Aymen Skiken

        bo2 doesn’t have kc in gw

        • jordanxbrookes

          Yes it does.

          • Aymen Skiken

            nope, im reading bo2’s gw description.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Go play Ground War in Black Ops 2, Kill Confirmed is in it. The description doesn’t show it, but trust me, it is in there.

          • Aymen Skiken

            oh nvm it didn’t say it in the description -_-

  • Haitian Jack

    Guess im getting it for the Xbox One then.

  • Ryumoau

    Glad its on the ps4 version but i still don’t get why the older consoles don’t get it. 🙁

    • I’m guessing too much memory for the last gen to handle.

      • Yeah probably with all the unique gear that players can enable it would probably max out the memory. At least that’s my guess. Should be 9v9 anyway.

    • justchill

      • Ryumoau

        Those games don’t sell the insane amount of copies that CoD games do every year, so i guess it makes it okay for them to be recycled. :/

        • TheShadowReaper

          that’s what i never got. that its ok for games to be recycled as long as they arent pop enough or sell enough. how hypocritical.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Don’t forget Pokemon, we can’t forget that.

      • LovekillerX

        Won’t agree more with this. Haters tell me to stop buying CoD but at the same time they purchase every Mario and Legend of Zelda and of course Pokemon. And they say that Nintendo isn’t recycling. And oh what did they say about DLC? Now that Nintendo games have DLC it is good thing. Logic!

        And in general… As haters say: “stop loving games that I hate!” Especially on IGN!

        • TheShadowReaper

          so fucking true, so fucking true. cant agree more with that either!

    • cRi7iCaL

      I think the cycle will break in March as no person thinks that Ghosts is better than AW.

      • Yeah, IF this would suck, many would still play BO2 (BO2 had about four times more people online than Ghosts during 2x … 174061 VS 54975 – PS3 btw)

      • George Claude

        How do you know? That’s exactly what people said about mw3 and bo2.

      Only happened with MW3 and Ghosts to me, and not all the “stages”. Not this time.

      I do not hope so… That mode is not good for AW at all in my opinion.

          you can play it on a cheap pc with a good experience

    • agreed.

  • imTojo

    Why would you get the last gen anyway? It’s being made by a different developer you would miss out on the actual game.

    • Tricky VIk

      “Not being ‘made’ just they’re kinda putting the stuff that SHG made already in there.”

  • Billy Bedlam

    i hope they change the kill kill confirmed points 50 for a kill and 50 for a tag is 2 low.. anybody on xbox one add me BiLLY BeDLAM23

    • That’s score. Your xp is 100 a kill and 50 a tag.

      • Billy Bedlam

        did they change from when i seen a kc gameplay?

        • It was like that in BO2 I think. Either way it’s 100 XP a kill I know that much.

          • Billy Bedlam

            thanks brother kc is my favourite game mode, is the score going to 100 or staying at 65? also you on xb1?

  • cool

  • Jesse

    Hopefully this also confirms we can add up to 17 bots (or more) in Private Matches like we could in Ghosts on Xbox One, PS4, and PC! If so than this is shaping up to be one of the best COD’s of All Time for me!

    • beardie97

      I saw only 11 bots, also, Ghosts had 11 too on ALL versions.

        That was for Squads Mode. In Local Play and Private Matches in the Multiplayer menu on Ghosts you could add up to 17 bots to do Ground War matches on next gen and PC.

    This sucks, ground war was always good on last-gen consoles.
    I played a full ground war on CoD 4 yesterday, and there was no lag to speak of, I also don’t remember Blops having much lag.

      It is different with this game, due to technical aspects.

  • Big war, big fun! (;

    • EuroXMan

    I loved ground war…. Damn. Can they just add it

    • beardie97

      • Eaz Jmilly

        Obviously I meant for current gen (Xbox 360 and PS3) you smart fuck

        • Tricky VIk

          “Current gen is considered Xbox One and PS4.”
          “But yeah, point taken.”

        • It’s a memory problem, would bog the shit outta the last gen consoles.

        • Freeze

          No offence but its time you upgraded. In a ear or two they will stop coming out with games for lastgen

    • Get an Xbox one now as the price has dropped a lot until nov 8.

    Is Momentum in Ground War?

  • Stefan Lang

    Ground War is could be possible for current gen. It wont work due to everyone having unique characters and not set characters like the other games before Ghosts had.

  • cant give credit to original source for box arts lol

  • kplem

    well that concludes there will be no server browser AGAIN for PC, I’m hoping teknogods can fix that
