Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Has Exoskeletons, Hoverbikes, and Kevin Spacey


Black Ops II brought some futuristic elements to the Call of Duty battlefield, but the next game in the series, the newly announced Advanced Warfare, is taking first-person shooter video game warfare pretty close to full on science-fiction with Crysis-like exoskeleton armor, hoverbikes, jetpack thrusters, and other high-tech weaponry. House of Cards star Kevin Spacey is also lending his likeness and acting talents to power a gripping storyline centered around “iconic new character” Jonathan Irons.


In case you were wondering, this is the first Call of Duty to be solo developed by Sledgehammer Games, and it is the first Call of Duty to be made in a three-year development cycle.

Here’s a brief overview about the game from Activision’s official press release announcement:

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare jolts players forward in a groundbreaking experience that’s ripped-from-the-headlines-of-tomorrow, envisioning a future where both technology and tactics have evolved to usher in a new era of combat for the franchise. Set in the year 2054, a private military corporation (PMC) has emerged with the power to rescue humanity from a devastated world struggling to rebuild after a global attack on its military and infrastructure. You are the advanced soldier. Empowered with new, cutting-edge exoskeleton abilities, technological advancements and high-tech gear, players join the ranks of a highly-trained, specialized unit committed to restoring order in a state of advanced warfare.


Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is scheduled to launch November 4th for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Pre-orders are now available at participating retailers, including Amazon and GameStop.
