Skewed and Reviewed have posted an opinion piece about the new Call of Duty engine and what it may hold for fans of the series. Among the ideas is greater use of vehicles, more interactive enviornments, and more customization features.
Why didn't they just embed the video with this article - http://bit.ly/XdTS6R It's pretty impressive, I think they have been working on this engine for a long time, it will be interesting to see what it looks like in-game Does make me think this is only possible on nex gen.. unless it scales down really well. -I guess we shall see. .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
They never said this is an engine they are gonna use in the next CoD..
I think common sense leads us down that road. The most important thing for Activision is the launch of next gen is a COD that will blow us away, like COD4MW did this gen.
But isn't that going to be history repeating itself. An epic launch of a new engine and feature rich CoD will just lead to them not changing anything, re-skinning it and releasing it every year. You know, essentially what they do now.
It's too early to tell. Perhaps with this beefed up specs, the new engine can be improved better then what was able to be done with the previous. Either or, we only can wait and see.
Would love to see this franchise take a vacation and see a new IP instead. How bout that?
Activision would not say much, I asked my rep and all he said was the video is from the tech side and do to NDAs and such there is no word as to if it is in the next game or one after that. With a new game due this fall as well as new consoles, you can bet that if they do not have it for this game, it will be in the 2014 release.
THERE IS NO WAY THIS WILL EVER BE USED FOR ANY CoD GAME... especially this year.. CoD is a cartoony, arcadey, slap-stick type game.. very unrealistic.. that's why so many younger children enjoy it. Those images are for one of Activision's more realistic games... sorry CoD fanboys, but you enjoy CoD for it's cartoony, arcadey gameplay style (its sold millions based on that) and that's what it going to be.... if Activision starts jackin with that recipe, it could spell trouble down the line.
Erm.... They never said anything about a new engine did they??? And if there is a new engine i do not see how it could improve without becoming a clunky engine that mulriplayer debut games get. The engine for cod4 was great, i dont play cod anymore like a lot of people but i dont think putting a new engine in is going to improve the game. The only way i could see this game saving itself is with bigger maps, more people in game, destructable environment and to cut dlc and microteansactions and replace them with free dlc and user created content. That is a game i would go back to and play as much as cod4, the core mechanics and engine should stay the same but with destructable environment
