New Call of Duty focuses on being realistic forty years in the future

For the most part, Call of Duty has dealt with past or present scenarios up until now. But, Advanced Warfare is going to move the story ahead forty years. How can Sledgehammer Games craft a realistic future when it...

The last decade has brought us ten new Call of Duty games. With that steady drip of titles, the series' developers have figured out how to craft increasingly elaborate action scenarios. Despite being at it for a while, the franchise shows no signs of slowing down. That's great news for players that like their games with plenty of adrenaline-fueled moments.

At E3, Activision was showing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in hands-off presentations. While that format isn't very conducive to getting a good feel for games, the demo did a fine job of driving home the point that Advanced Warfare is going to be laced with over-the-top setpieces.

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

So far in the saga that is Call of Duty: Ghosts, the fun factor of the game has increased tremendously through the first two map packs -- Onslaught and Devastation, which allow you to play as Michael Meyers and Predator, respectively. Slowly but surely Infinity Ward has been addressing concerns from Ghosts, adding in more interesting locations on top of a ton of little extras that add up over time.

Although Invasion doesn't have a gimmick as strong as say, a playable horror or action movie villain, its tricks are more spread out over the entire DLC, making for one of the best map packs yet.

New listing points to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on Wii U

Although Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 had a great showing on the Wii U on a technical level, Activision sadly did not support the game nearly as much as it supported every other platform -- same for Ghosts. Now once again w...

Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion lets you play as a mariachi

I really enjoy the Call of Duty series, but jeez was Ghosts a letdown. While many a hater will like to say every game in the series is more of the same, it was painfully true of Ghosts. That said, the new DLC pack really sho...

Max and I were having a laugh at all of the stupid garbage comments on our recent breakout Call of Duty video, and thought it would be a good idea to share the laughter with our not stupid garbage viewers (you).

Advance Wars is better than CoD: Advanced Warfare photo
Advance Wars is better than CoD: Advanced Warfare
by Jonathan Holmes

When the word leaked that the next Call of Duty game is called Advanced Warfare, there was just one thing everyone everywhere wanted to know -- will Advanced Warfare be as good as a 10-plus-year-old Game Boy Advance game with a name that sounds kind of like Advanced Warfare?

Sadly, the answer is "no."

Report: Neversoft no more, merging with Infinity Ward

Whether you played them or not, most gamers out there grew up with the Tony Hawk games around them. They were hugely popular during the PlayStation 1 and Nintendo 64 era, and I'll never forget developer Neversoft's freaky lit...

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.
