Sledgehammer seems to have brushed away a lot of the cobwebs in Call of Duty’s multiplayer, chucking in a slew of new features in its sci-fi spectacle. Activision has put together a seven minute video detailing exactly what shiny new things you can expect, from the flashy exoskeletons to the customisation system.
The exoskeleton continues to look like a whole load of fun, with its Boba Fett-style wrist weapons and cheeky modules that let soldiers deflect grenades. And the enhanced freedom of movement also means you pull off ground slams or hover over the battlefield, raining death from above.
The maps are worth a note, too. It looks like they’ll come with twists, changing the way players fight thanks to tracking systems and automated defences that can be taken over by teams.
Among the 12 launch day modes – many of which are CoD mainstays – is a particularly quirky one, Uplink. Teams fight for possession of a satellite drone, which they must toss into their opponent’s uplink. The drone can be thrown between teammates, but can also be thrown at an enemy, which will leave them temporarily weaponless and vulnerable.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is due out on November 4th, or November 3rd if you pre-order it.
