Play Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare a day early with the Day Zero Edition

This week, Activision is making its next major promotional push for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. (Perhaps you read our "preview" or saw the multiplayer trailer.) That can only mean one thing: it's time to talk about pre-or...

Activision is offering an in-depth look at multiplayer in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare today during a live event but if you're content with seeing just the basics, this trailer will suffice.

With the new exoskeletons, gameplay is much more vertical. These high-tech suits allow soldiers to jump super high and boost to dodge and dash. At a glance, the speedier movement system appears similar to Titanfall but whether it plays that way remains to be seen. For folks who are into Call of Duty and not much else, this will certainly be a different experience.

The trailer also showcased a level with a tsunami which I hope is a sign of things to come. I like those one-off map events, even if they eventually get stale. Also, Hammer of Dawn, is that you?

Activision is upset with us, you know. As it turns out, publishers love revealing things. So when someone leaks something before a publisher intends on tipping its hand, well, it gets angry. And you aren't going to like a publisher when it gets angry. That's when certain invites to certain preview events start getting "lost in the mail."

Missing out on a hot ticket like that sucks, but it's not really the end of the world. Everyone's played Call of Duty. And lord knows we've done a preview or two in our time. Hm... Actually, you know what? With a little imagination and some assumption of false optimism, I think we can make this work. You're going to get a damn Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare preview, dammit!

Even if it's a totally fake one.

Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Nemesis photo
Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Nemesis
by Chris Carter

Look, $50 is a lot of money for a Season Pass in a first-person shooter. If it was just comprised of 16 maps alone, no matter how good they were, it probably wouldn't be worth the money for all but the most diehard of FPS fans.

But thankfully, Infinity Ward has made amends for the rather bland core package of Call of Duty: Ghosts, and the Nemesis map pack is no exception. In addition to four solid maps, there's another chapter of Extinction, the developer's out-of-this-world take on Treyarch's zombies.

Because of these packs, I'm actually a bit more excited for Infinity Ward's follow-up in two year's time.

What's the point? Wii U gets Black Ops II map almost two years later

The Wii U often gets the shaft in terms of DLC. It either gets it late, not at all, or is left completely in the wind as to what the status is. Nearly every major publisher has pulled one of these moves, most notably Activisi...

Xbox has 'big reveals' planned for its trip to gamescom

If its word is to be believed, Xbox is going to take advantage of its time at the world's biggest videogame convention. When gamescom hits (and in the days leading up to it), Microsoft will hold a handful of events where rev...

Call of Duty puts a nail (and bullet) in the coffin of Ghosts DLC with Nemesis

Activision's doing its best to drum up hype for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, but it's not ready to leave Call of Duty: Ghosts behind like some sort of unloved orphan child. No, it has unfinished business, as the ...

Video: Much of Advanced Warfare's plot revealed by trailer, and I think I smell a beta coming
by Bill Zoeker

A campaign trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare came out which goes over some of the plot points. I also speculate on some rather obvious, yet still uncertain, plot developments to come. The trailer also announced a multiplayer reveal coming August 11, which I theorize could come with a beta announcement.

Today there are a bunch of new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and The Last of Us Remastered (which is on sale) but Bill and I would rather talk about superhero cartoons from twenty years ago, and guns we can't remember the names of in Unreal Tournament.

Neversoft burns the eye, gives out knives for studio's last day

As part of merging with Call of Duty's Infinity Ward to make a "super-studio," it is the last day of Neversoft as its own studio. The eye, perhaps made most famous by Tony Hawk's Pro Skater was burned in ceremony and everyone in the studio was given a knife Crocodile Dundee would be okay with. RIP in peaces, Neversoft.

Confirmed: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will have audio

A new behind-the-scenes video for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has confirmed that the game will indeed have audio. Guns will have the pew pew noises, dudes will go "oh no you shot me how did you know bullets were my weakness!?. Oh, and there will be lots of explosions.

In a lovingly overproduced developer diary, a couple of Sledgehammer bros ran down the exciting new gear in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, including this year's "game-changer," the exo-skeleton, and hyped some of their other groundbreaking innovations such as... as laser. If nothing else, there was an opening for a Mountain Dew joke.
