First introduced in Call of Duty: Black Ops, the Emblem Editor, is coming back to multiplayer in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Last year’s title, Call of Duty: Ghosts, did not support this feature, but rather stuck with the traditional Title and Player Card setup seen it many of the previous titles in the franchise.

With the return of the Emblem Editor, players will not only be able to customize you emblem, but the emblem will also appear on your operator’s exoskeleton in game, so that players can show it off in multiplayer matches as well as in the Virtual Lobby.

IGN Presents First Gameplay of Advanced Warfare’s “Momentum” Mode

For the second week of IGN First’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare coverage, IGN is showing off the first gameplay of the game’s brand-new multiplayer game mode, “Momentum.”

Defender

Basically, Momentum is a take on Call of Duty: World at War’s popular game mode, War. “Momentum is essentially a game of Tug of War,” writes IGN, You can think of it as a more linear version of Domination, where the points you need to capture are in a row and not spread around the map.

Furthermore, if you capture the point in the center of the map, the next contested point is one spot closer to the enemy’s base. The more points you hold, the faster you are able to capture flags and gain points.  Watch the gameplay after the break.  Read more »

IGN Reveals Advanced Warfare “Recovery” Multiplayer Map

IGN has revealed another never-before-seen Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer map during their month-long coverage of the upcoming Sledgehammer Games shooter.

Lead multiplayer designer at Sledgehammer Games, Greg Residorf, gives us a first look at another Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer map – Recovery. Earlier this week, IGN also revealed another multiplayer map, called “Retreat,” which can be seen here.

At first, it looks like a nice research station nestled in the mountains of Hawaii. Plenty of hallways, corners, and close quarters spaces make SMGs shine. Then the volcano erupts…

After that, poisonous gas floods the map, and players continue to fight and battle over objectives as they’re forced to evacuate through a safety gate. Things can get a bit crazy. The second half of the map is more open with longer sight lines, making rifles a more suitable choice.  Read more »

Sledgehammer “Worked With A Pentagon Adviser” For Advanced Warfare

For Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, developer Sledgehammer Games wanted to create a much more authentic experience for players, and in order to do so, they sought out advice from many experts, one being the scenario planner from the Department of Defense.

“Three years ago, right after we finished Modern Warfare 3, we started thinking about how to change Call of Duty,” co-founder Michael Condrey told The Guardian. “We brought in a lot of outside help – military advisers, futurologists – we got together with a scenario planner from the department of defense, who is active in the Pentagon. His job is to think about future threats and prepare ‘what if’ scenarios for the US government. So we asked him, what do you think will be the conflict of tomorrow?”

Basically, the source quickly ruled out China, which he said would “eventually collapse under its own economic weight,” a resurgence of the Cold War with Russia, and a consolidation of Islamic extremist states. Rather, the source claimed that Private Military Corporations (PMCs) would be the next major threat to the security of the United States.

“We thought that was fascinating and provocative,” Condrey said. “What happens when an organisation that’s built for profit has access to all the latest weapons and technology – an organisation that can operate outside of the Geneva Convention, that can be purchased by the highest bidder? What if that got out of control?”

“This was around the time that Greece was collapsing economically, there were riots – and there was an understanding that, the reason PMCs have had such an opportunity to grow, is that funding a standing army is very expensive for a modern nation state. Why not outsource war? It’s better for PR – you don’t have to explain to parents why their kids are dying in battles on foreign soil.”
