SH Games says CoD Advanced Warfare MP will be ‘pretty revolutionary’

4.4
In an interview with the Official Xbox Magazine (OXM), Sledgehammer Games discussed a few details surrounding Advanced Warfare’s Multiplayer.

Advanced Warfare MP introduces lots of new features and innovations that we’ve never seen before in a Call of Duty title, ranging from new classes of weapons, to new player movements.



“We’ve got heavy weapons, which is sort of another new class, verticality through the boost jump – you can imagine what that does to the multiplayer experience,” said Condrey. “And then cloak, super-strength, and then off-the-controller changes, like the exo-boost and the exo-slide.


“We’ve got a really great combo now with the boost jump and then a lethal slam from above,” he went on. “We feel like it’s a pretty fundamental change to the second-to-second combat, as well as the broader linear experience that you see in campaign.”


“The shotgun is a close quarters weapon. A short ranged, broad angle weapon like the shotgun is pretty ineffective against a player who can boost out of the way really quickly, right? So there are a lot of really interesting and unique challenges and opportunities, and I think when we talk about MP in more detail you’ll get to see that, but the variety that the new controls and the exo bring to gameplay is pretty revolutionary.”


SHGames realizes that they’re certain aspects of Call of Duty that people always want to see, and not break or discard the most popular aspects.

“We know that there are some fundamental things we have to do with Call of Duty,” observed Schofield. “There are a bunch of weapons that people will always gravitate to, so we have to bring those forward into the future.


“What we do is we look at an AK47, and in 50 years it hasn’t changed a heck of a lot, so for a future version, we’ve changed it as much as you would in 50 years. Others we’ve looked at, and they’ve just changed fundamentally in those 50 years, so we’ve made those adjustments as well – we’ve said ‘OK, that’s changed a lot’.”

Personally, I hope there's a major change from Ghosts. I don't expect revolutionary, seeing I believe R6 will have the best multiplayer for upcoming games.

I am liking the sound of how Advanced Warfare is forming into, I think it will make the game a fair deal more enjoyable which in-turn means that it last longer before people start getting bored.

So people are just going to be jumping like all sorts of bunnys in this game, it will suck to be a pro player to be going up against it everygame, scrim etc..

DeluxeHazard COD has been so repetitive since MW2.


I know! All they do is; change the maps, guns, and campaign. Then BOOM there's another COD game..


Everyone says that, but when they break the mold everyone hates it. Look at ghosts for example. Anyway I really hope this game is good. Ghosts has been stale for months for me.

It'll be different. I honestly want the same game. It's fun EVERY year. The people that cry about it still buy the games. BF4 sucks anyway, Titanfall Sucks anyway, Halo4 sucks anyway, so COD is still the main FPS on the market. No argument about it.

I'm NOT excited for these changes at all. I want a rebuilt COD4 with a little more balance.

Super strength? Cloaks? Lethal slam from above? Am I reading about the same game here?
