COD DLC review photo
A new meaning for Cyrus 'The Virus'
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... read feature

Steam's running a free weekend for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer


Dare I?
Feb 19
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... read

Call of Duty unleashes DLC, zombie horde on PlayStation and PC in late February


Havoc, indeed
Feb 04
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... read

Being zombie Malkovich
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. read feature

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... read

A victim of its own success
“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... read feature

Conan O'Brien is better at Call of Duty than Frogger


Trying his hand, then losing that hand
Nov 04
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. read

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

Watch the Golden Gate Bridge get destroyed in Advanced Warfare


Okay, those grenades are hecka cool
Aug 12
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 video for the new Call of Duty focuses on San Francisco, showing off a chase and the eventual destruction of the famous Golden Gate Bridge.  read

Look, I know what a laser is. You're not fooling me.
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 feature
