With just five months remaining until “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” is set to launch, Activision and Sledgehammer Games are seemingly ramping-up the behind the scenes looks into the game. On Monday the official “Call of Duty” YouTube account published a brand new video showing gamers a little of what they can expect from this so-called “new era” of “Call of Duty,” and revealing a special perk for pre-ordering the game.
In the nine minute video, viewers got to see a little of what the “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” campaign has in store for them. The video starts a group of U.S. Marines crash landing into a war zone in Seoul, South Korea, and follows them as they battle their the war-torn streets.
One of the first new gadgets fans got a look at was the “booster.” The team used these boosters to safely jump from an extremely high building with the help of bursts of air. Another cool weapon shown was the “cycle grenade,” which seemingly allows players to equipped one grenade that has multiple setting including “smart,” “frag,” and “contact.” It's unclear exactly what each of those settings do, but having multiple uses for one attachment should prove useful.
While the gameplay shown in this video was amazing, it's not necessarily the most exciting part. Near the end of the video it was revealed that players who pre-order their copy of “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” will receive a bonus for doing so. That “bonus” is said to be an “advanced arsenal” that includes a custom exoskeleton and a EM1 quantum weapon.
“Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” is set to hit store shelves on Nov. 4, 2014. You can pre-order your copy today on Callofduty.com for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC for $59.99.
