Call of Duty


I've come to really enjoy Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's multiplayer months down the line. It's withstood the test of time, and although I was skeptical of Sledgehammer Games' first Duty outing, it has done a decent jo...


Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare got some flak for the whole "Press X to pay respects" debacle, but after the controversy quickly died down, it had plenty of time to shine with an active online community. Although th...


To jump straight to the not-so-fun part: it's a 43.5GB download for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and the promo only covers multiplayer. Also, it lasts until Sunday, February 22 at 1:00pm Pacific. So you can't swoop in, ogg...


Call of Duty: World at War's zombie mode was an incredible addition to the industry. It was a fully featured mode that was actually included in the base package, and I played the first map for 100 hours, easy. I still play z...


If you purchased the Season Pass for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, you got an extra map on top of it called Atlas Gorge. Now, Activision has opened up its purchase for $5 as a standalone DLC. The special Atlas Gorge playlis...


To the surprise of absolutely no one, the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise is well underway. If a Call of Duty game doesn't release, it doesn't actually count as a calendar year, you know. Activision C...


The past few years have seen Microsoft hold a temporary monopoly on Call of Duty add-ons. That hasn't changed with Advanced Warfare, as Xbox players have been mowing down zombie puppies for a solid week now. Activis...


Call of Duty map packs are definitely a mixed bag. Fifteen dollars is pricey by any standards, and the prospect of one or two remade maps and a grand total of four arenas isn't anything to get excited about. Advanced Warfare's new Havoc DLC has just arrived this week on Xbox platforms, and it's par for the course in terms of what you'd expect. As usual though, zombies save the day.


When Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Havoc add-on releases next week, players will get waves of zombies they don't want to deal with. I'm not referencing the hordes of jetpacking undead, or even the ones that seemingly...


“I don't think I can ever go back to the old style of Call of Duty.” I've heard some variation of that sentence at least once per week since the launch of Advanced Warfare, and if I were Treyarch or Infinity Ward...


Zombies again. It's what people know, I guess. Comforting, familiar zombies. With Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's first DLC pack, Havoc ($15 standalone, or included in the $50 season pass), the undead will don exoskeletons ...


In China, the Call of Duty series is devoid of Kevin Spacey, but that doesn't mean they won't try to sell it with big American actors. This live-action trailer for Call of Duty Online, the China-exclusive free-to-play Call of Duty, features Captain America's (and Snowpiercer's) Chris Evans.  There are also some lacking CG zombies and Gears of War style giant monsters.


Sniper rifles only, decreased health, specialisations based around single shot combat and no secondary weapon options? Yes, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has a new team based multiplayer mode and it's all about fast reaction...


As way of a bit of backstory for the zombies add-on to Advanced Warfare, Activision's released a teaser to semi-explain why hordes of undead have made their way to the military shooter. Seems a bomb was dropped to finish one...


Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is still truckin', and although the first DLC pack hasn't officially dropped yet, Season Pass owners get free weapon DLC early. Of course, I meant to say "Xbox owners" get said weapons fir...


Sledgehammer's making sure that the top Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare players stick out like a sore thumb. That way, you'll be slightly consoled when you have the worst game of your life. Or, you won't feel guilty when ...


Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare saw a shift in the franchise toward faster and more vertical gameplay. This was a change that was mostly praised. But, how can Sledgehammer include the fan-favorite zombies in the game? Th...


Max and I were trudging along in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, when I shared a gut feeling that Kevin Spacey is not a very nice person. Max proceeded to share a story related by an ex-girlfriend, who had her adoration of Spacey crushed by that rude, kissy man.


Max and I were playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare while hungover, and started devolving into dumber and dumber jokes, and then Max busts out a term like "jingoistic proto-fascism" because we're a couple of San Francisco hipsters who definitely don't have informed, individually refined opinions about things because the world is a vampire and everything is fake.


Max and I continue to fumble around in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, as our minds wander to some predictably stupid places. We talk about meeting an imaginary teen named Stephan at the skate park, how to find "The Boob," and aggravatingly stupid YouTube comments.


Call of Duty: Ghosts was bad, even for Call of Duty.  There was some hopeful schadenfreude that this would impact series sales, that people would maybe realize these games are sort of lame, that the largest entertai...


Max and I continue giving the benefit of the doubt to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Max started talking about a crazy theory he has connecting the television shows Gilmore Girls and Californication because his brain was polluted by a combination of oysters and vodka. Don't do booze, kids.


Max and I got our hands on a copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. We figured we should probably play it because people like to watch men get sweaty in videogames or whatever. Anyway, we recorded this the day after Max's birthday, so we were both pretty hungover, which served to exacerbate our lack of shooter skill and the incoherence of our jokes. Enjoy.


Activision's taking one of the most basic social skills that everyone learned in kindergarten and totally disregarding it. The publisher's using its biggest title of the year to be the first, and most prevalant, example of a ...


Digital Foundry has ran a test on the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for both current-gen consoles, and it seems as if they both have their advantages. The PS4 version looks slightly better as the Xbox One edition h...


Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey has spoke out against the notion that the gaming community is corrosive, telling BBC Newsbeat he and his team has a "pretty low tolerance for toxic behavior" while downplaying its...


Conan O'Brien, the self-professed "Clueless Gamer," is back for another round with one of the year's biggest videogames. This time, it's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Ever the sharp mind, Conan immediately jumps all over the emotional try-hard "pay respects" scene near the beginning.  Then, he dies a lot. Not from bullets, however -- from ruthless morning commuters.


Everyone knows that the best part about GoldenEye was the immense satisfaction of rolling up behind your friends with an RC-P90 and painting the back of their heads with rainbow-colored death. Paintball mode was the bes...


There's a bit in Watch Underscore Dogs where Trench Coat McBall Cap has a sad over his niece's (oh, right, a gruffman not sad about his dead wife, right) grave. After the flashback and his tortured inner monologue&n...


After the disappointing Call of Duty: Ghosts, Activision needed fresh ideas, and Sledgehammer was just the developer for the job. Even before it delivered its first game, a weight has been lifted off of Infinity Ward and...


Deals brought to you by the crew at Dealzon. FYI: sales from certain retailers go toward supporting Destructoid. If you're a PC gamer questioning why you need to spend the full $59.99 for a purely digital copy of Call of...


In the past, Call of Duty development was principally handled by Infinity Ward and Treyarch. I've always preferred the latter, who was able to weave their signature "Nazi Zombies" mode into their games (though I am likin...


The three certainties -- death, taxes, and a Call of Duty Season Pass. Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be following the same scheme as recent games in the series, with a $50 S...


Earlier this year, Panama's former dictator and friend to the CIA Manuel Noriega sued Activision for the use of his likeness in Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Not for defamation of character for portraying him a murderous badman...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which we definitely previewed here, yep, it all checks out, will be available to purchase one day in advanced at Warfare, uh, I mean Walmart. Close, close. Select stores will have tournaments a...


Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's required PC specs have been released on the game's Steam page, and it turns out that all that power doesn't necessarily change everything -- especially if you use last year's iteration as a b...


Activision is doing another "cross-gen" upgrade deal with the upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. If you buy the game digitally on PS3 or 360 before March 31st, 2015, you'll net a free copy of the respective current...


This article on gamesindustry.biz had me looking away from my computer screen for a second, dazed. Here's a quote from it, pulled from a new Businessweek article featuring some words from Dave Anthony, former Call of Duty&nb...


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...
