Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare trailer officially released, out November 4 – watch

Friday, 2nd May 2014 07:57 GMT By Dave Cook

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has received its first official trailer out of publisher Activision. It confirmed the shooter’s future setting, hover bikes and all.

I’ve also written a bullshit blog full of stills and observations from the clip above. Come have some fun here.

The shooter was supposed to be fully unveiled on May 4, but we’ve posted an early selection of screens and details here.

It’s set in the future, where private military contractors go to the highest bidder to wage corporate – and totally not Metal Gear Solid 4-like – wars. Kevin Spacey appears to be the villain of the piece, as you can see by his shiny, mo-capped, new-gen face.

There’s hover bikes, stealth cloaks, sticky gloves that make a man climb like that Spider-Bloke, exo suits that allow for superhuman jumping and strength, and not a single trace of rappelling.

Thank christ.

We’ll have more on the game once the bigger reveal drops.

    I fuckin’ love Kevin Spacey.
    Call Of Duty on the other hand……… no!
    But I won’t lie, I’m intrigued by the campaign.

    Certainly more interesting looking than Ghosts.

    I assume it’s just going to be identikit game design though :/

    Does this mean that I have to buy a new console? Well, I didn’t want to; At least not until Kingdom Hearts III was released.

    Called it, i knew Sledgehammer Games working on this longer than usual would turn out to be different.

    Really wish the Kevin Spacey model was better. Still, it looks like ten generations better than Ghosts both in terms of visuals and gameplay (Exo suits > Dogs + Fish AI).

    I confidently predict Danny Trejo as Battlefield’s next antagonist. EA are so cheap…

    It looks good very good but is it just me or does it have a look of killzone in it

    Nothing like CoD, right? ;)

    No rappelling?BOOOO!Also…WELCOME BACK G1GA :) !

    Same old engine. It looks bad, again. The only difference is that they used current gen “High textures” and other bullshit that was in CoD on the PC version all these years.
    Oh man… Nothing changes.

    and yeah. Kevin Spacey. Because of that shitty engine you can’t properly make a motion capture of him. His face is plastic and lifeless. You can’t do anything about it.

    Also, 1:36 – they are using 2D for a fog from Call Of Duty 2

    Looks good as most CoD set pieces does, but the problem is the same as ever: 3-4 hour campaign. 99% of the time will be spent in Multiplayer anyway, so they sure waste a lot of time and resources on a 4 hour experience. Why not make a good 10-15 hour campaign instead? Crysis 2 could do that for example, and it still had multiplayer.

    I clicked on the video convinced I’d watch it and think “That settles it I am not buying COD this year.” And Fuck, they have Kevin Spacey, a new setting and premise altogether, and hoverbikes. How do they keep hyping me every year?

    Totally love the armor design. Definitely looks interesting, might be the first CoD in years that I buy.

    Am very intrigued by this. Looks a hell of a lot more promising than Ghosts ever did.

    Despite it having shades of ‘CrysisFall’ it looks better than any of the recent CoDs

    @Hcw87 yet all those 4 hours are full of cool cinema style action scenes and great firefights.MW 3 had the best campaign in the series IMO.and yeah Crysis 2 campaign was long and fun,especially on Supersoldier difficulty.Crysis 3 completely fucked up the campaign.

    This looks really cool actually. I’m not a fan of Call of Duty AT ALL, but this looks really promising.

  24. Game Hunter

    Ghosts was a complete disappointment. Although the ending was superb,the rest of it sucked.but this trailer has picked my interest.anyway,I’ll still buy it,because of my argument with my friend 5 years ago,which was about who has completed the whole series.I’ve completed all the 10 Cods and will complete the future ones because I gave my word to my friend.

    #24 8 months ago


    Thanks, but I’m not back. Just passing through…

    Have fun, though!

    As someone who downright vehemently hates CoD and blames the game for why modern gaming is going to ****, I must say that this game might actually change my mind, cause its got KEVIN F’ING SPACEY and he only does quality work so maybe It’ll be good. Haven’t really played any FPS on my PS4 mostly cause my preferred FPS BF looks like **** and the CoD game with the dog also looks like ****, though the killzone game looks nice but I really can’t force myself to get into it mostly cause It’d feel like I’m betraying Halo, but then again I’d unhook my Xbox360 and put it in my console graveyard cupboard so maybe its time to move on

    Nice acting by Mr Spacey, but as far as the game, people might not want democracy but they sure as hell want mediocrity. Fool me once and all that, but people should know better, these games havent been and never will be good.

    well if this video is based on the Sockbox One… Then the PS4 will look Twice as good!!

    This just in: Titanfall created Sci-Fi.

    And if the PS4 version looks twice as good as the ‘Sockbox…?’ version the PC version will five times as good!

    So if it looks like this on the Sockbox One… Then it must look twice as good on the PS4

    You’ve said that already.

    @Panthro and if it looks 5 times better on the PC then it will look 100 times better on Project Morpheus… Your turn.

    #37 8 months ago
  38. Panthro


    And if it looks 100 time’s better on Project Morpheus I will suck your dick.

    Luckily, it won’t.

  39. Reddpayn

    Panthro is right. The pc version on maximum settings will exceed console versions. Its a shame though that one should still buy a 700 euro pc to be on par with the ps4, and still the pc version would lack splitscreen mode.

    If you watch the video on youtube you can select which resolution you want to view it at.

    The video has a 1080p option, was this reeaaaaally captured on an Xbox One? I

    That’s a damn shame…ever since you and DSB left,this place has really changed…for the worst…the new look didn’t help it either.

    You’re implying the site took a turn for the worse just because 2 members left? Doesn’t make sense to me. It’s been bad for a LONG time community wise.


    Nah, this guy has even worse grammar. Still a Sony-worshiper though, so i don’t blame you for the comparison. This is why the site needs a ignore-user option.

    Kevin Spacey is a great actor and for the first time in a long time, I want to play a COD game now. Well done Activision.

    Game looks like uninspiring trash that will appeal to the COD masses. COD 4 is > * out of the series.

    I’m a massive fan of Kevin Spacey but C.O.D – yawn!!

    I’m sick of seeing the same boring shooter being re-hashed and re-released every six months using the same engine and same, boring, linear level design and predictable A.I.
    Same with Battlefield – rinse repeat rinse repeat.

    Absolute garbage. I mean hover bikes?? We had that covered in the 80′s with Back To The Future!

    Come on guys…..think of something new and exciting for once and drop these ridiculous games and develop something worth investing my time and hard earned cash into….PLEEEEEEEASE
