Activision has released that latest trailer for Sledgehammer Games’ solo debut, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, taking a sneak peek at the game’s globe-spanning single-player campaign mode, in which many of the world's leading countries have been the victims of numerous damaging terror attacks.

A slightly dead-behind-the-eyes Kevin Spacey is the star of the show here, taking on the role of Jeremy Irons. Owner of a private military company dubbed Atlas, Irons is granted a huge amount of power following a global terrorist attack, and power, Activision assures, changes everything…

It feels like we've come a long way from crawling through the cold streets of Moscow in Call of Duty, with this impressive new trailer showcasing an explosive near-future world wide war in which new gadgets, tech and weaponry are the order of the day.

Irons claims that Atlas have been granted the power to take military action without the backing of the US Congress, and have the largest standing army in the world sets the scene for a bombastic globe-trotting military affair.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is out on November 4th worldwide on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

Like the direction Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is going? Could this be the most radical shake up the series has seen since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare? Let us know!

I don't want to be boring but CoD died with MW3 (in my opinion, i'm just sayin'...)
Probably, the game itself (talking about Advanced Warfare) will be good, but i have to accept the fact that a game like this, which has never been realistc at all, starts to focus on futuristic war scenarios. Even if i'd love to, CoD would be epic if it sticks to reality, but the gameplay won't allow something like that, is too much " Arcade ".
This one looks like Crysis/Titanfall...

I don't remember excatly, but Imran Zakayev(spelling?) was some russian terrorist leader who wanted to rule the world or some sh1t like that, then he died, and after his death he was considered to be some kind of national hero in russia, and then a lot of explosions. That's how i remember it...

Kind of odd they'd choose to name the villain using the name of an actual actor, Jeremy Irons. They could have had Jeremy Irons play Jeremy Irons and make it a kind of post-modern absurdist action-comedy.

This is the first CoD since Blops1 that I've been excited for. Granted, a large portion of that hype has to do with Spacey being in it and I'll watch/play anything that he's in. But I like how they're focusing on SP this time around.

I seriously don't hope huge player counts. If so, the maps would also have to be huge, like in BF. CoD just fits nicely with it's small run and gun maps and about 12 players.

imho: this should be called "Ghosts 2". so, imho, this will be another flop. after playing Ghosts (AWFUL GAME) i have quitted COD saga. sadly, the last real COD was Black Ops 1. end of story. the problem is not about developers (sledgehammer, ininity ward, treyarch). the problem is all about Activision, imho.

To me BO1 is one of the worst CoDs, MP and SP wise, zombies was good, but maps weren't as good as WaW's, though WaW maps were later released as DLC for BO1. Ghosts was IMO decent CoD, a lot better than Both BOs IMO. MW1 and MW3 are still easily my favorites.

BO has a real fascinating storyline! and don't focuse all about MP. videogames are not only about MP! the importance of MP is the real matter we have too many boring first person shooter. considering bioshock infinite: awesome game + amazing storyline! so i don't care MP.. i wanna play great SP with great gameplay and great storyline! for these matter , COD is getting boring.

No offence, but if i was buying games mostly for SP, i would definitely not buy CoD games. CoDs MP to me is just damn addicting and easy to grab fun with friends.
SP i usually play trough, and just end up being disappointed after doing it.

I was a huge fan of BFBC2 and BF3 MP, when i tried BF4 it just didn't feel good at all. Ghosts i thought was really fun for a month, but when i reached 100hours of MP gameplay it got annoying and i went back to MW3, for some reason i just never get bored of it :)

They surely will be A LOT better on PS4 than on PS3. Ghosts already had a very noticeable difference between new and old gen consoles. There is no way that PS3 version would look even closely as good as new gen version that was showed at E3.


The thing what would make me to buy the PS3 version is that most of my friends are still on PS3, i have like 15+ friends who still play on PS3, and like 3 who have PS4s.

I say it straight I HATE COD. I just cant take that copy paste bs money sucking arseholes. But i have to admit they might have taken the hint this time and make even somewhat different than the ongoing copypaste from MW 1 to Ghosts. And it even looks bit like next gen. btw is it new engine or have they improved the old
