Are we really allowed to call it a “launch trailer” if it’s showing up more than two weeks ahead of the game’s actual launch? I’m not sure, but Activision and Sledgehammer Games are doing exactly that with this new clip for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
The yearly entry in this now very long running series has a harder focus on futuristic warfare than we’ve seen in the past. Players will follow the guidance of a character played by Kevin Spacey as they don exo suits for combat and gain a host of brand new abilities.
This is Sledgehammer’s first shot in the driver’s seat on Call of Duty, so I’m personally hoping it’s the start of something truly unique within the franchise.
While the gameplay launch trailer is here today, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will officially launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on Nov. 4, 2014. We’ll have more on the game as it comes.
