EGX London has confirmed today that Call of Duty Advanced Warfare’s multiplayer will be playable on the show floor at their event. The event takes place from September 25th till September 28th in Earls Court.

Advanced Warfare will be part of the 18+ age section at EGX. Tickets for the event are already sold out.


  • guest

    so how can i get tickets then…

    • HenryDF

      You can’t.

    • J4MES

      They’re sold out. I got mine back in June.

  • HenryDF

    We’ve seen before how more maps and content have been revealed closer and closer to the release at events, hopefully this will happen again.

    I’m pretty sure this happened with BO2, with Hijacked and Cargo being playable at Eurogamer or something similar, even though they hadn’t been in earlier public builds of BO2.

    • jordanxbrookes

      I remember at Eurogamer Stonehaven was revealed, everyone including me, were like: “Well this looks like a cool map, hope we get to play in the castle.”, then we all know how annoying Stonehaven is -_-

      • Yo

        only if you still play ghosts hehe

        • jordanxbrookes

          I only play FFA in Ghosts, I’ve given up on team games in that game.

      • HenryDF

        Stonehaven looked great, and I love it visually, but as a map it’s just so dire without an objective. If they’d focused on the castle more, and cut out that stupid side lane up near that turbine, I think it could have been better.

        • jordanxbrookes

          How to make Stonehaven better:
          1] Focus on the castle
          2] Have some outskirts to the castle accessible, without disturbing the focus, that being the castle itself, so it allows for flanking
          3] Make the castle medium-big, that way it can allow some CQC in the rooms, hallways etc. and also allow some mid-long range engagements in, lets say a big dining room or the front lobby
          4] Maybe include some easter eggs to do with the castle’s past and refer to previous kings and queens that lived there in real-life

          • HenryDF

            There really didn’t need to be as much space as there was around the bottom and the right side of the village. That could have all been cut out, and there could have been more space in the castle.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Exactly, just imagine Stonehaven just focused inside the castle, would be pretty sweet.

  • Michel

    Just a question.
    You can buy COD when your 16(even if 18+ rated)
    May you also play it at the 18+ EGX section?

    • J4MES

      Probably not.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Where do you buy your Call of Duty games from?

      • Michel

        Online, all local stores.
        I guess its a Dutch law.
        Was just thinking of going to EGX this year, guess I will wait till next year.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Oh ok, the only Call of Duty game I’ve bought personally was Ghosts because it was PEGI 16, can’t wait for this year and next year though 🙂

          • Michel

            I thought that it was a European law but wasn’t sure.
            I require to show my Identification Card, but can buy 18+ games even when I’m 17

          • jordanxbrookes

            That’s not how it works in the UK.

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            From where I live, COD gets sold 1 week before it’s release date ?, but much more expensive than normal price 😀

          • Michel

            can’t figure out which if you were:
            A= Random
            B= Shop owners don’t give a shit about age or release date.

          • M_ysi42t96

            Probably both

          • KernosT

            You might be 17,but maybe you look 18 or older.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I have a beard, but I still need ID, so tough luck until next year for me :/

  • jordanxbrookes

    Well that’s great, except I’m not 18 yet, but at least I can play Treyarch’s game at Eurogamer next year 🙂

    • KillzoneVII

      I just turned 18 a month ago, but I’d still need to fly all the way up to London (I live in America) so fuck that lmao.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Yeah, I was considering on going to Gamescom next year, but what’s the point when the newest build of the multiplayer will be playable in my own country? Plus, it’s only a 2 hour train journey from where I live.

        • KillzoneVII

          For sure, I’d definitely go if it was only a two hour trip. Some time I would like to go to gamescom however, just seems like a cool experience.

  • Guywithbrains

    I don’t want to be that guy but these games have PEGI 18 for reason. I mean I have seen how +18 games affect children. I see them swearing, calling names all the time and shouting loud if they lose. Not saying that adults don’t do it but I see children doing it much more.

    The point is that children should play games of their own age. Of course 17 years old can play PEGI 18 games because in US it is rated M for mature (17+). But I mean 12 years old should play PEGI 12 games.

    • KillzoneVII

      It’s not really just games though, kids talk like that in general at that age now, in school, with their friends, etc… The whole blame can’t be put on games. I don’t like it either but unfortunately that’s just the generation we live in right now.

    • Grenada!

      You can’t just blame games. Movies, music, parents and friends can teach children how to swear etc while not knowing it.

      • Guywithbrains

        I was just talking about video gaming effect to young kids. I didn’t mean it is the only source to their bad behavior.

    • Josh

      I disagree, if you are mature enough to play a game that is 18+, I see no problem. I’ve been playing COD since BO1 and I’m now 17 – The game has had no effect on my behaviour whatsoever and I got good grades. I don’t think that call of duty should be 18+ anyway – there is no sex, drugs etc in it apart from some swearing, which children are exposed to anyway at school or through their parents!

      From what I see, if the children are brought in a negative environment or surround themself with bad influences they are easily prone to show these behaviours beacause they see nothing wrong with what they are saying/doing.

      • Merffy

        “… if you are mature enough”

        Not everyone under 18 is mature enough or choose to be mature enough.

        Call of Duty may have a social like effect on young teenagers. Most, if not all, of what you hear over the Call of Duty mics are belittling insults. Young teenagers may find these insults funny instead of the opposite which may be because of the “rebel phase” in life; no mercy for others emotions They may also notice the amount of attention it gains, so, wanting to become the alpha male, they may adapt and use in different scenarios, whether it be at school or over the internet. I’ve heard younglings call 24 year olds “kids” when they themselves are the kids. I was even referenced as a kid by a young one, and I’m 19.

        “…there is no sex, drugs”

        Take a look at Black Ops 1 and 2’s emblem creator. Sure, NSFW images weren’t created by the games, but they did give the opportunity for gamers to create them. Under 18 year olds are exposed.

        Then again, “online interactions not rated by the ESRB.”

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      From what I’ve seen, you don’t blame videogames for this. You should blame middle school (where it begins), peers, media, movies, even TV shows etc. For example, my sister (just entered middle school) has watched shows on Disney and stuff, which is supposed to be for kids. But look at the shows they have. It’s all about dating and drama, etc. Then they enter middle school, where kids start to swear. Then they join social media like instagram, etc. It really is sad how “children’s TV shows and movies” have all this sexual innuendo every where, and I’ve heard cartoons on Cartoon Network start to use smaller curse words like crap. Tbh I blame society. That’s just how it is. You can’t blame one thing. It’s everything.

      • FazalGaming

        My 5 year old nephew wanted me to watch a show with him on Cartoon Network and they mentioned sex and not the gender like actual sex.

      • Crap is not not a bad word at all haha. I’ve heard them say what the frick on CN though. That is much worse than crap.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          When I grew up, crap was a bad word. The least bad word out of all of them, but still a bad one. Frick was never that bad, I never considered it a bad word. However, they do say sexy on kids cartoons, which is completely inappropriate.

          • yes…..and uh…. nice pic?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Lol yeah.

    • LovekillerX

      You have a good point over there and I agree with you. There are age ratings and I think that people doing that rating know what kind of content is for adults and which is for children. I think that little children should play something else than these games. Many (not all) children’s behavior changes when playing shooting games for example.

      I remember the time when little children knew how to act. And I remember that time when they actually played OUTSIDE, not with consoles. Nowadays things have changed and we can blame so called “free raising” from that which became more known few years ago. Everyone can agree with me that few years ago children didn’t swear all the time and beat people up this easy.

      Of course 16- or 17-year-old can play PEGI 18 games if they are able to handle that content which includes violence and offensive language. But 15-year-old and under should focus on something else like studying which is very important.

    • ConstantWin

      If you think the place kids learn how to shout cuss words, you are severely mistaken/misinformed. I hear kindergarten kids (age 5) running around yelling that stuff all the time… Maybe their parents let them play CoD, but I rather doubt it. People are always so quick to assume that the videogames are to blame for a child’s behavior. The kids are exposed to cuss words at school, at home, on the internet, and countless other places. It is the real world. Get your head out of your ass. It’s the parents job to teach a kid to not use those words or know when they can and can’t use them.

      • Guywithbrains

        I didn’t mean that video games are only place where children learn to swear. I was just talking about video gaming and the fact that 12 years old and younger play PEGI 18 games. It isn’t only about learning bad behaviour but also it is a problem to other players. Since when 12 years old shouting to mic has been nice to listen?

    • Michel

      Thats the reason why 18+ games can be bought by 16 year olds in my country.
      It doesn’t make much sense having a 18+ rating.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Exactly, because older rated games are for the more mature teens/adults. I’m 17 and I don’t go swearing at people in game or have a hissy fit at them for no reason. But the worst part is that there are people older than me that act like they’re 12, it’s pathetic.

      • LovekillerX

        For me it is really annoying that little children comes to scream like little girls with their microphones. I can hear them swearing and screaming and that kind of stuff when I stop their attempt to get a M.O.A.B. in MW3 domination. It saddens me that little children can play these games.

        Age rates shouldn’t only be recommendations. But nowadays parents don’t pay so much attention to raising so this is why little children can play these shooting games.

        I am really wondering why adults are complaining about content in games when there is clearly age rating (PEGI 18 for example.) “Why you let my 12-year-old boy see this kind of content in this game? Shame on you!” and same time there is age rating 18.

        Sad but true. 🙁

        • jordanxbrookes

          My cousin is 11 and he plays Call of Duty, but here’s the thing, he doesn’t swear, shout, scream or make ignorant threats or stupid remarks to people, he just likes to have fun with friends.

          • LovekillerX

            Yeah I’m not telling you that every 12-year-old teenager does that. However many of them does and that saddens me. Teenagers should seriously pay attention to studying because middle school determines your further education.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I knew what you meant, I’m just saying it’s the only reason why my uncle buys Call of Duty games for him, because he’s sensible to know that it’s a game and that he shouldn’t be using such silliness over the internet.

          • LovekillerX

            It is good to hear that someone really pays attention to raising the child.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yup, plus I used to play matches with him back in MW3, and I always made sure he wasn’t using or doing such profound things.


      My kids will not be playing call of duty until they are 16 if they are lucky. I hope that my kids don’t game as much as me and instead have more creative roads in life like music or art and obviously sports because video games don’t do it justice for physical activity. I like gaming don’t get me wrong, but a lot of people within our community are almost drug addicts with how important this stuff is to their overall life and happiness. I invest a lot of time into gaming, but I have also taken as long as six month breaks without touching a game.

  • Bartram22

    I would of loved to find out about ttk for my self first hand after seeing mixed videos on the subject

  • IamConnolly

    Bloodborne and AW announced for EGX. Today was a good day.

  • KuuGeeL

    It will also be playable at games 14 dubai sept 11-13 its a big deal for me because I live there!

  • Michael

    Did eurogamer expo happened already? Sorry I don’t usually follow the event names.

  • Ryumoau

    i really wish they would release a playable demo (even just single player) at gamestops in the US. I’d love to try it prior to release. 🙂

  • might as well release the game if it’s going everywhere…

  • Lol I’m going to GameStop expo. Anyone else?

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    AW is only playable in Europe, while I’m in the US just chillin’.

  • PEGI 18 is so pointless on Call of Duty. Kids just ask their Mothers/Fathers/Uncles/Aunties/Older Strangers.

  • Romeo Benjamin Laurente RN

    kind of out of topic but is Advanced Warfare Multiplayer going to be playable at Gamestop Expo 2014? i’m from California and i’m going there so just curious. hehe

  • GodLikeLeftNut

    im going to this woooo!
