Developer Sledgehammer Games just showed off the first footage of "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare" in advance of Germany's Gamescom conference, which begins tomorrow, and it looks to be a fairly substantial departure from other entries in the long-running franchise.
The first trailer of the multiplayer mode showcases the many new features at the disposal of users, such as cloaking and quick movement from the exoskeleton suit equipped on all players. Some of the movement seems reminiscent of "Titanfall," which was developed by former Call of Duty developers at Respawn Entertainment and features parkour, jetpacks and cloaking.
Slegehammer said the game will include all the traditional Call of Duty modes as well as some new modes, such as a Uplink, which sees players competing for a satellite drone to be thrown or jumped into the opposing team's goal, similar to a game of football.
"Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare" will be released for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on Nov. 4, though gamers who pre-order will receive it a day early. Those gamers will also receive two custom weapons and a special double-XP event the day before the game's full retail release.
