Sledgehammer Games has begun releasing details of the multiplayer version of the forthcoming instalment of the Call of Duty franchise, Advanced Warfare — likely to the be year’s best-selling gateway to real-time pubescent misogynistic yelling.
Among the key points:
- As expected, an EXO suit will overcome the pesky limitations of playing a human being in such games, with the ability to cloak yourself, hover and use a force-field to protect yourself. As a result, you’ll be able to kill from above.
- Supply drop options will be added to the game, covering both standard weapons and items you can only use once.
- There’ll be 12 game modes at launch, with new ones including Momentum (in which the team that captured a position last racks up points at an increasing pace) and Uplink (in which you have to carry a satellite drone to an uplink, but the player carrying the drone can’t use weapons.)
- There’ll be a firing range option to try out weapons and customizations before using them in a game.
