At E3 2014, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson told Game Informer that the studio has a desire to further involve its community in the development process, possibly along the lines of what we've seen on Steam Early Access. Yes, paid alpha/beta access.

"We have nothing to announce, but we are having discussions when it comes to [early access]," Troedsson said. "It comes not from a business perspective, but more from a perspective of if it would help us have a stable launch of the game."

Not a lot looks changed in Call of Duty's 'Power Changes Everything' trailer

For a trailer that boldly suggests that "power changes everything," Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare sure looks pretty similar to past installments in the franchise. I guess the guys jump higher before using their mega-de...more
