After a leak led Activison and Sledgehammer Games to unveil the new era of “Call of Duty” titled “Advanced Warfare” two days early, even more details about the upcoming release have become available. According to a press release published by Activision on Friday, “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” is now available for pre-order.

The first official trailer for “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” was released on YouTube in the very early hours of Friday morning after it was leaked ahead of schedule. It opened up to the voice of Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey, whose voice and likeness were used in “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,” and gave gamers a sneak peek at what they can expect in the next edition of “Call of Duty.”
“Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” is reportedly set in 2054 at a time where an attack on the worlds infrastructure has crippled militaries, and left humanity in peril. Gamers will be soldiers that are a part of a private military corporation that has risen to power to rescue humanity. These soldiers will be outfitted with a cutting-edge exoskeleton and high-tech gear as they work to restore order.
