Call of Duty is pushing further into the future of warfare, according to leaked materials including screenshots and a trailer.

UPDATE: We’ve got the official trailer here. Watch it, or something.

ORIGINAL STORY: (posted before this was all made official)


Destructoid cites a “trusted source” for a collection of screenshots, a trailer, and some details related to the Sledgehammer’s 2014 Call of Duty game.

The site claims the game is subtitled Advanced Warfare, and follows the exploits of a PMC group led by Kevin Spacey’s character – who has turned on the US government.

The screenshots, which mostly look like screengrabs from the trailer, show exosuits used to jump and climb in superhuman ways, hoverbikes, and cloaking technology. Visit Destructoid to see the assets.

Activision has confirmed the game, which has been nicknamed Call of Duty Blacksmith and Call of Duty 2014, will be revealed on May 4 – Sunday, in other words. Kevin Spacey’s involvement seems assured.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    The lighting is impressive and the game looks fun but:
    - Kevin Spacey model… man, that looks rough.
    - The visuals are still lacking behind the PS4/XB1 launch titles like Battlefield 4.

    You can still see remnants of the old engine, it looks supped up, but you can still recognise it at points in the trailer. Also its still remains a cross-gen game, so was BF4, but that was made to run on high end PC’s so the next gen versions were based off that.

    I wouldnt expect a CoD game to blow us away visually in till its made solely to run on the new hardware. In till then, this still looks good, like one hell of a ride. I just hope they redeem the MP after Ghosts fucked it all up.

    I really struggle to get into near future stuff – and despite being a Kevvy fan, I’m unmoved.

    Yeah, the roots of old id tech are showing here and there.

    Regarding the BF4 comparison, I actually think this should have been much better, even for a COD game. Being built to run on high-end PCs has nothing do with such visual disparity. I mean, look at Watch Dogs. It’s system requirements are insane for a game that looks average to good (But not great).

    If both BF and COD are cross gen games and both are running at 60fps. then when one of them is coming out a year later, it’s more than acceptable to expect better visuals from the latter. Hell, when BF4 was being made, the next-gen consoles weren’t even out and yet, BF4 on Xbox One still looks better than this trailer in almost every aspect (Plus, with this being a reveal trailer, it’s safe to assume that the final game might see a few downgrades after what happened with Forza 5 and Watch_Dogs).

    Of course all of it comes back to the engine and obviously, BF has the great benefit of running on a proper next-gen engine rather than a WW2 relic from early days of Infinity Ward.
