Three Things You Must Know About PS4's Evolved FPS Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

http://www.pushsquar...dvanced_warfare

 

 

It’s being made for the PlayStation 4 first and foremost
As was the case with last year’s disappointing doggy-focused affair, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will release on both the PlayStation 4 and the ageing PlayStation 3. However, the publisher promises that this cross-generation compatibility will not negatively impede the next-gen version of the game, as it’s being built with Sony’s latest system in mind. This means that developer Sledgehammer Games – Dead Space director Glen Schofield’s new studio – has been given the freedom to push the format to its limits, and this is evidenced by the escapade’s first trailer, which shows a real step forward for the franchise in the visuals department.

It could have a story that you actually care about

In a tip of the hat to Metal Gear Solid, the story will focus on Private Military Corporations, which already represent a substantial sum of the globe’s outsourced defence expenditure. Spacey will play the founder and president of a fictional faction named the Atlas Corporation, making him one of the most powerful men on the planet. And judging by his speech in the title’s first trailer, he doesn’t appear to agree with the ideals of a democracy, stressing that people want boundaries and rules set by a strong leader. We’re going to assume that you’ll start out as a grunt working for the sinister suit, before having an epiphany and fighting against the army that you once represented. Alright, it’s not exactly original, but the acting already appears to be top-notch, so we’re onboard.

Its future focus will unlock new gameplay possibilities

Spliced between footage of Kevin Spacey’s rousing monologue, the video shows rocket boots, infrared grenades, hover bikes, spider tanks, magnetic climbing gloves, advanced armour types, and even mech suits like the ones found in Respawn Entertainment’s shooter. It’s unclear which of these toys will be available in multiplayer, but Activision has promised that the new setting will unlock fresh gameplay innovations, both online and offline. It’s safe to assume, then, that there’ll be a greater sense of verticality in this new instalment, with all-new layers such as unique ammunition types bringing a different wrinkle to the series’ familiar formula.

It's interesting to see what games can do when not being held back by last gen. It's why Im interested in how Assassins Creed: Unity will be, seeing as its Nextgen only.

I don't buy it for one second.  If it has a PS3 version then they're almost certainly going to make sure things they do can scale back to the PS3's capabilities.  That's going to place SOME limits on what they do that wouldn't be there if there wasn't going to be a PS3 version at all.  This reads as PR hype to me, nothing more.

I agree, cant do 100%. However I do think if the trailer is accurate to final gameplay, they've certainly done a better job of it than Ghosts did. That game did not look a single shred better on next-gen.

I'm torn. On the one hand, it's another CoD. I agree with the majority that they've overdone it. I stopped at Black Ops 1, playing the coop survival in MW3 with a friend wasn't bad but wasn't enough to get me to buy the game.

On the other hand, Kevin Spacey being involved with this has me interested. I'm a MGS fan as well, so the story of PMCs is something I can get in to.

I'm not fussed about whether it was made specifically for the next-gen consoles or not. If you're just upping the graphics and not doing anything for the story or gameplay, I won't bother. With any luck, Sledgehammer Games have a similar mentality.

Looks like it will contain the same tired gameplay we've had for the last 7 or 8 years now. Slightly better graphics aren't going to change that.

Me too. Although i was pleasantly surprised by BO1, but nothing since has excited me.

It's an FPS? What do you expect?

Not the same rehashed game year after year with very minor changes to it.

No no, i totally agree with that. The reason i've not enjoyed a COD game since Blops but it was an honest question, what would you want to see in a new FPS that makes it something new, enjoyable but still maintain the integrity of being an FPS?

The thing is, usually developers don't have the money and development time to be scaling games properly to platforms and use the past-gen as a baseline and build up from there. On the other hand here, Activision will be pumping millions into this and given the extended time given with the added developer and business sense of it, It will be a decent next-gen version.

 

This CoD interests me quite a fair wack.

I haven't allowed a single CoD on my interest radar since MW2, they just really bored me. This however from the trailer got my attention, whilst they may not be doing anything new for FPS, for CoD it does look like they are adding a few new gameplays, It reminded me a lot of G.R.A.W which I liked a lot, so add a nice co-op story with a blend of GRAW and CoD and it might actually get me back into the CoD universe

 

Now I need to shower because I feel dirty admitting that

I don't think I have a good enough imagination to answer that question.
