If you’re a serious fan of any game franchise, you’ll always find yourself thinking, “I want to play this game RIGHT NOW!” With Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, pre-orders will allow you to play the game before launch day – according to their official features press release.
Among the list of facts and features distributed to the media today, Activision will release Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to consumers who pre-order the title 24 hours before those who do not. Enabling the truly hardcore fans of the series to get a jump in multi-player or single player action before the screaming masses, Call of Duty will break tradition this year in hopes to compete with Activision’s other major IP Destiny, as well as Battlefield [pushed to 2015].
While this is a controversial move on the part of the series, the title is changing from its roots this time around and becoming something more in line with Titanfall or Quake with the addition of the exoskeleton. Players will move with familiar speed in Advanced Warfare, but may feel much more agile with a host of new moves at your disposal. Players can now boost jump, dodge, dash, slide, slam and more as the Call of Duty finds a more vertical stance and blurs the line between the realistic shooter and other sci-fi shooters on the market.
Advanced Warfare will pack in “nearly 350 custom weapons” as players strive for a new rewards system and customization options touted as “the most in-depth, robust and advanced” Call of Duty game to date. Including more than 1,000 in-game player rewards, and more than 2 billion unique player customization combinations, Advanced Warfare should feel as personalized as it is futuristic this time around.
Pre-ordering the title this time around doesn’t pick up any special DLC, which is both a nice change and a poor decision from Activision. As the “Day Zero Edition” allows players to play the game 24 hours before launch, there will be no financial advantage to picking up the game ahead of time – though some content is available to show off. The Day Zero Edition will allow players to live in glory through the inclusion of the AK-12G assault rifle and Crossbow-B2. Both weapons will be available for use to those who pre-order, along side a full day of double experience for those playing on day zero.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare reaches retail on November 4th, 2014 and will be available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC. All Download content for Advanced Warfare will release one month ahead on Xbox platforms versus PlayStation platforms.
