Sounds good. That's the way it should be IMO.

christocolus1286d ago (Edited 1286d ago )

You took the words right out my mouth. It should have been that way from the start but instead activision wanted to go cheap and they made every cod game feel like a dlc instead of a fresh experience. I'm really looking forward to this one though.

Best of luck to sledgehammer.

I haven't played any CoD games past the original Black Ops so it will be interesting to see if this game can pique my interest in the series again.

kaiserfranz1286d ago

Hopefully with three studios, each one of them will have more time to innovate.

theshonen88991286d ago

This isn't how you treat a game as a "new IP."
Starcraft Ghost is treating a game like a "new IP." Paper Mario is treating a game like a "new IP." Metal Gear Rising is treating a game like a "new IP."

This is Black Ops 2 with some Crysis mechanics. It doesn't even resemble a new IP.

Dmagic1286d ago

@theshonen8899 so when did you get your hands on it?.....exactly shut up and wait we have not even seen the hud yet,shots to kill,modes,feel of the game for you to say anything.

psyxon1286d ago

theshonen8899 your reading comprehension is terrible.

Supporter1286d ago

I really liked the spacey aspect of the trailer. Who knows how it pans out.

I sense a little smoke and mirrors about it though. we'll have to see concrete gameplay before I rule out it being just another cod to me.

theshonen88991285d ago

@Dmagic You've completely missed my point. My point isn't about the quality or features of the game, its about the entire concept of a "new IP." You don't just take the same formula, add some features and parade it around like a "new IP," a new IP is something that was designed from the ground up to be something different. You could very loosely argue that a third person CoD would have been like a "new IP."

@psyxon My favorite part about your comment was the part where you justified your argument.

"We're Treating Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Like A New IP"

too bad consumers won't.

So 7 years of Advance War Fighter ?

Hmmmm, hopefully it's a little more diverse than last gen.

ATi_Elite1286d ago

Call of Duty: Advance Warfighter Black Ops Ghost 3

We're Treating Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Like A New IP"

"BUT really it's the same OLE MESS but with slightly better graphics".


C-H-E-F1286d ago

only slightly...only slightly

thejigisup1286d ago

definitely, this game doesn't look to have a CoD feel. I mean the whole augmented human thing really changes the play style. Best of luck to them, especially with unreal tourney around the corner.

C-H-E-F1286d ago

you're right sounds good... but new ips are built from the ground up, 80% of the time incorporates new tech... i'm pretty sure CODAW will still be on that stale tech... smh.

also, they want to "treat it" like new ip but us COD just for sales? really hahahaha wow

Matt6661285d ago

Why don't I believe that, mainly because Activison is still involved and that means Mark Rubin will be some where and he just say oh just copy and paste the game, people are still going to buy why so why try

JeffGUNZ1285d ago

I'm not buying into any of this until I actually see online MP footage. I can see cut scenes till I am blue in the face, but they need to show me the meat of this game, the MP.

I'm not a fan of the series, I hope that the development of Sledgehammer Games brings significant improvements.

kaiserfranz1286d ago

I haven't been a CoD fan in a long time as well, but I have a good feeling about this one.

Majin-vegeta1286d ago

Well in that case.

-Higher player coun
-Dedi servers not that bs you pulled on Ghost
-Bigger maps or about the same size as Ghost maps.
-Less KS
-NO dumb bs perks.

kaiserfranz1286d ago

Sounds good, but the important thing is to create the maps with the exosuit powers in mind. If they can make traversal fun and somewhat skill based, then they could have a winner.

seanpitt231286d ago (Edited 1286d ago )

Cod developers say this every year but it's the same engine and same game every year I bet the death animations are even the same. They said ghost was a total different cod with a new enhanced engine to tie in with next gen and it had a dog lol.
I bet activision cannot believe there luck with putting the same game out every year and earn billions because the gamers Keep buying it.

I know for a fact this game will be the same even the trailer we saw I could spot a lot of things the same has blackops 2 but this time it's got Kevin spacey.

Vegamyster1286d ago

Sledgehammer hasn't shown us what they can do with direct control over the series, they've been going to tournaments & events to take notes on what the players want from the game. Graphically speaking the game looks noticeably better and they said its a new engine, obviously other games look better but it still looks good and they're probably aiming for 60 fps. I wouldn't jump to conclusions yet until we see both unedited SP/MP footage.

seanpitt231286d ago

Someone said what you just said about ghosts. I just hope your right we need a different take on cod it can be a good game like cod4 was.

Brix901286d ago

Sorry but sounds like Ghost 2 to me no thank you. Bigger maps did not work for Ghost.
Higher player count there's already ground war and most COD players enjoy the 6v6.
Ghost kill streaks were terrible and boring.
Agree with you on perks though.

Sorry but your version of COD sounds like you want it to be battlefield.

-Foxtrot1286d ago

Here we go, hyping it up like it's going to be something brand new and unique when in the end once the hype fades away it will be just another Call of Duty game.

dasbeer881286d ago

If Sledgehammer Games remove Kill/Death Ratio from Advanced Warfare, I can guarantee you that'll be a great overhaul.

Palitera1286d ago

It is unbelievable that some people are still falling for this.

Well, whatever, they'll believe the exact same words next year too...

MegaRay1286d ago

It worked for them for about 5 or more games. Why stop now?

DaMist1286d ago

I'm looking forward to it, i have passed on some of the call of duty games of recent year, but i might give this one a chance. I also have the first Advanced Warfare rap on Youtube :D

DaMist1286d ago

Sorry for the double post. first one didnt work. can anyone show me how to delete one?
