Developed by Sledgehammer Games, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is a first person shooter set in the year 2054 that guides players to defeat a terrorist organization called the KVA. The newest and most exciting feature in Advanced Warfare is the exoskeleton suit that greatly expands your character’s range of abilities and provides players more control over their own fate in combat.
Those lucky enough to try their hand at early demos of Advanced Warfare got to experience the game’s exoskeleton suit, which allows characters to jump higher, hover across landscapes and take on enemies in exciting air combat assaults. The new exoskeleton suit promises not to be a gimmick, but a thrilling new feature that is essential to the game.
Players can also look forward to upgrading their exoskeleton suits to increase existing abilities like jumping and inflicting damage. With players around the world expecting greater character customization, Advanced Warfare does not disappoint.
For now, there are seven unique abilities the exoskeleton suit offers. These enhanced abilities, however, are limited in use by the power of the battery. Once the battery power runs out, you must wait for the suit to recharge.
Additional items include a shield for protection, a trophy system that allows characters to deflect grenades and rockets, and a cloak to conceal your character’s identity. Other enhancements include acquiring “stims” to increase your health temporarily, and “pings” that show the exoskeleton suits worn and the weapons fired by other players on your map. These exciting new features stand to add an engaging experience in multiplayer mode where the results could be completely different than in previous titles of Call of Duty.
Advanced Warfare is a fresh new take on the Call of Duty series that will greatly please many fans who felt the series had long since lost its appeal. The introduction of the exoskeleton suit is a key feature that many are hoping will add new life to the Call of Duty franchise.
The pressure is also on the developers of Call of Duty to innovative the series’ gameplay. With the rise in popularity of games (e.g., Titanfall) that have introduced a vertical element to combat, Advanced Warfare has to reinvent the franchise to remain relevant in today’s next gen-consoles. By changing the game from the ground up, millions of gamers, including myself, cannot wait to jump into our own exoskeleton suit come this fall.
The game is set for release on November 4th, 2014 and will be available for the PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
