Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare channels its inner GoldenEye 007

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 best, and anybody ...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare PC requirements haven't advanced much from last year

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 baseline. The mi...

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-death machines. M...

Watch the Golden Gate Bridge get destroyed in Advanced Warfare

Ghosts was a giant disappointment but man Advanced Warfare is looking really good. I'm mostly interested in the multiplayer at this point, but the single-player looks like it will be worth it this time around too.  The latest vid...

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

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, game...   read

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.

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.   read
