First details on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer

Kevin Spacey vehicle Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which we brought to you guys last night, has some more details trickling out. Notably, the deliciously Titanfall-like exoskeletons in the Advanced Warfare extend "across al...

Activision confirms Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare with trailer release

That's odd. Call of Duty's YouTube page says that the world reveal of the new Call of Duty is set for May 4, but they have the debut trailer posted right now, on May 2. Why did they do that? Anyway, here it is in its full 1080p glory, even if you might have seen it earlier. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is real, set to launch on November 4. Dogs and Cheetos!

[Update: Activision released an official trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on its YouTube channel. See what you did, Destructoid?]

The official reveal of the next Call of Duty is imminent. We've seen a screenshot out of Game Informer and have a countdown set to go off Sunday morning. But let's not wait for that.

Word has it via an untitled, "leaked" audio recording that actor Kevin Spacey will play a role in the Sledgehammer-developed title. Variety connected the dots using a visualizer on the audio file to come up with an image that looks like a man holding a weapon. His involvement has since been confirmed. And going off that VICE-produced video about private military companies released earlier today, we know the game's general theme.

Through a trusted source, Destructoid has learned the new Call of Duty, subtitled Advanced Warfare, revolves around a soldier of fortune group run by Spacey's character that has turned on the United States government. As shown in the leaked media attached to this post, players will wear exosuits to jump super high, scale buildings, and cloak themselves. Also, hoverbikes.

Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer free on PS3 and PS4 this weekend

Call of Duty: Ghosts is going to be free soon on the PS3 and PS4, in case you were curious about how the new iteration ended up (spoiler -- the actual release was underwhelming, but the DLCs have been pretty good overall). Fr...

Oh, look! It's Sledgehammer's new Call of Duty

Technically, this isn't the first image of the new Call of Duty in development at Sledgehammer Games -- that distinction was wasted on this close-up shot. Let's forget about that one. Here, via Game Informer ahead of its cove...

Teen calls SWAT IRL in retaliation for Call of Duty loss

You've heard of playing SWAT games in Call of Duty, but what about actually sending SWAT to someone's house because you lost to them in a videogame? On a scale of one to fedora-tipping, how pathetic is that? An anonymous game...

The first image of the new Call of Duty is solemn, kind of pointless

It's that time of year again. With the NBA playoffs heating up, so are the annual rumors surrounding the imminent reveal of the new Call of Duty. This time, it's Sledgehammer at the helm of the S.S. COD, and the developer aim...

Dumb Idiot Ideas: Voice pack mistakes photo
Dumb Idiot Ideas: Voice pack mistakes
by Bill Zoeker

Max had his dumbest idea yet; handing the show over to me. What if more games had downloadable content voice packs the way they put Snoop Dogg into Call of Duty: Ghosts?

What kind of celebrities would work for that kind of thing? The answers may surprise you.

Get a taste of the R. Lee Ermey Call of Duty voice pack

Next week, Infinity Ward is set to drop two voice packs for multiplayer -- Snoop Dogg, and R. Lee Ermey. While Snoop's studio visit was previewed already, Ermey's wasn't -- it didn't even have a price or date confirmed, in fact. But now we know that it's going to hit at the same time as Snoop, on April 22nd for $2.99. Check out the video in full, and hear the iconic drill sergeant for yourself.

In an effort to make myself relevant to teenagers everywhere, today's episode of Farts 'N' Crafts combines Pokémon and Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Am I relevant now, teens? Hm?

The rest of us can play as the Predator in Call of Duty: Ghosts this May

I'll hand it to Infinity Ward for spicing things up by included the Predator in Call of Duty: Ghosts with its Devastation DLC pack. More moves like that and the studio might just win over some of the fans who have moved on to...

Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Devastation
by Chris Carter

Infinity Ward's DLC capabilities may not be up to snuff compared to Treyarch's, but the fact that they're trying is good enough for me. Call of Duty: Ghost's Onslaught DLC was a major step up in quality when compared to their prior milquetoast map packs, and somehow they've even managed to top Michael Meyer's cameo with the goddamn Predator.

Not all of the maps are created equal, but another strong Extinction mission and the Predator gimmick help elevate the package considerably.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation is now out for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 for $14.99. You get four new multiplayer maps, a new gun, a new chapter in the Extinction co-op mode, and most important of all, you can play as the goddamn Predator.

Like the Michael Myers transformation, you can become the Predator from the field orders stuff and you truly embody the Predator here. You get its thermal vision, invisibility, the claw, and even the shoulder mounted gun too. And when you're killed you can blow yourself up, which kills EVERYBODY! You even do the evil laugh!

I'm starting to regret that I gave up on Ghosts' multiplayer shortly after launch now.

Activision closing down mobile studio The Blast Furnace

The Blast Furnace was Activision's mobile studio based out of the UK, where they made Call of Duty: Strike Team, Pitfall, and Wipeout. Their mobile plans evidently didn't pan out as they had hoped, as the studio will be closi...
