Activision has issued a new press release with more details on the new upcoming installment of the mega-franchise, Call of Duty, with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and also provided us with some new screenshots. You can check out the new game screenshots below.
The new game features Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey and is the first Call of Duty game to be developed by Sledgehammer Games. The gameplay will feature new exoskeleton mechanics, and Activision boasts this will be a "breathtaking, new vision" for the franchise.
CEO of Activision Publishing, Eric Hirshberg, stated: "We've made several key decisions with an eye towards creative excellence on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. We've really approached this game differently. This is our first three-year development cycle. It's our first time with Sledgehammer Games at the creative helm. And we're shaking up the formula in several ways. New core gameplay mechanics with the exoskeleton suit. A riveting new story. An iconic new character played by one of the world's best actors in Kevin Spacey. We're having a lot of fun making this game, and we think the world is going to have even more fun playing it."
According to Activision, the game's story is set in 2054, and a private military corporation (PMC) is emerging with the power to rescue humanity from a world trying to rebuild after a global attack on military infrastructure. Gamers will play as an advanced soldier in a unit specialized to restoring order to the world.
Spacey plays a new character named Jonathan Irons. Speaking on his role, Spacey stated, "It's been a lot of fun working with the team to bring Jonathan Irons to life. The technology is truly remarkable and unlike anything I've done before. I'm excited to see where this goes."
Glen Schofield, co-founder and game director of Sledgehammer Games stated on Advanced Warfare: "This is an opportunity of a lifetime, and an honor for Sledgehammer Games. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the most ambitious and creative project we have ever worked on. From the endless research and thousands of production designs, to our incredible focus on the narrative and amazing attention to detail – we're taking nothing for granted. Call of Duty connects with the fans on such a deep level, and crafting a new vision for the next generation has been so inspiring for us."
Michael Condrey, co-founder and studio head of Sledgehammer Games added: "Glen and I created this team with the singular vision of delivering the best work of our lives. We know we're stepping into some pretty big shoes, but every day I'm amazed at the talent and focus at work here touching everything from the story experience to multiplayer. We're excited to lead the next chapter in this great franchise, and we can't wait for November 4th."
The Sledgehammer Games version of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be released specifically for next gen consoles and Windows PC on November 4.
