Three Sledgehammer developers explain that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been approached as a brand new IP by the studio.
Sounds good. That's the way it should be IMO.
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.
Hopefully with three studios, each one of them will have more time to innovate.
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.
@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.
theshonen8899 your reading comprehension is terrible.
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.
@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.
Hopefully.and if this turns out to be lying,umm your words not mine.
"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.
Call of Duty: Advance Warfighter Black Ops Ghost 3 With Back to Modern Warfare DLC!!!! OMG I can't wait!!!!!
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". CORRECTED!
only slightly...only slightly
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.
@INFECTED... 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
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
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.
I haven't been a CoD fan in a long time as well, but I have a good feeling about this one.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You forgot proper PC optimization.
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.
If Sledgehammer Games remove Kill/Death Ratio from Advanced Warfare, I can guarantee you that'll be a great overhaul.
It is unbelievable that some people are still falling for this. Well, whatever, they'll believe the exact same words next year too...
It worked for them for about 5 or more games. Why stop now?
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 http://youtu.be/Vy0DK6oc5wY
Sorry for the double post. first one didnt work. can anyone show me how to delete one?
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
Better than I expected. I will be surprised if the game lives up to your video though.
Thanks! I know a safe bet would be to have low expectations for this, but they may have a chance at taking a step forward here as the franchise did with cod4.
What if you took a rap that came out couple years ago, changed the beat a bit like adding a clap or a snare maybe an 808 bass, changed the words, then changed the title from lets say " Gin an Juice " to Gin an Juice From The Ripest Fruit " How well would you be received in the Rap World ? How much play would your Rap get ? Why do we expect originality and talent from certain entertainment and accept mediocrity from others ? Let's start expecting more originality and talent from video games is what I'm saying, instead giving these " Vanilla Ice " devs our money and support let's cheer on the Chuck Ds, Immortal Techniques etc.
Wow, a new COD game is a new IP. WOW Just WOW
If you take a Doodie today it's still newer than the one you took yesterday no ? This directly applies to Call It Doodie games.
I would be more interested in it if it was just called Advanced Warfare, but slapping the disgraced COD name in front of it makes me care far less than it should have been. I won't be surprised if it turns out pretty good, but my hype meter is still low just because it is an annual COD game.
People forget/forgive so easily. Wish I had the time to go back, copy & paste all the baloney that is Activision.
I can't believe it either. People seem to buy whatever they say every year, and pre-ordering instead of holding out to see if there's some actual truth to their claims.
"We're Treating Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Like A New IP" - A new IP that is exactly like the COD we released last year muhahaha!
they gotta do it, the trailer looked awesome ghosts sucked
Going by history it's going to be an expensive map pack, and sell millions based on hope for improvement from its loyal fanbase.
yeah i get what u say, mw3 and ghosts are even worse than map packs, they're inferior versions of past CoDs(MW3 campaign which developed by sledgehammer was good btw, raven ruined mp maps in both games) this CoD is the first CoD since CoD 4 to have 3 year development cycle and a new engine im excited tbh
I lost total respect for anyone doing a COD game everytime I see a new feature that's really a old feature for other FPS game I laugh but this takes the cake. Call Of Duty Advance Warfare stolen from ---> Ghost Recon Advance Warfighter release 2005 come on Activision or whoever is making these decision stop it already.
I been saying this all along. People keep saying they stole stuff from TitanFall (which wouldn't make sense given the development time), but I would argue that it definitely took a lot from Ghost Recon Future Soldier.
We'll see. They hype up every COD game. Wait until it's actually proven. However, most will blindly pre-order anyway.
Those are pretty words , as usual every year , we shall if they'll ring true or hollow
You should, its called Crysis.
its already been 10 years of call of duty games hot damm
COD developers have been caught fudging the truth a few times now, granted that this is Sledgehammers first time at the reigns with this franchise. I really hope they aren't lying. The truth will be revealed when the game launches.
I can't get over how great the character model of Kevin Spacey looks. I usually pass on some of the Call of Dutys, but I'll be keeping an eye on this one based on everything I've read about it so far.
People on N4G have the memory and attention span of guinea pigs, they've been saying the crap since MW2 you morons ! Last year the claimed Ghosts was using a new engine, then at E3 they interviewed a dev from Infinity Ward ( prob ex - dev now ) and he admitted it was not a new engine just a rework of a previous one. Now all dopes ate on here talking about " This actually looks good " " Im excited about COD again " stop it, just stop. All you have to say is that you will buy COD every year no matter what, but stop acting like this is the year that they're gonna do it right.
I'm not excited. Gonna need more than Kevin Spacey to get me to buy it. I stopped at the first Black Ops. Since that was the last game actually TRIED to do new things. Ever since then it's been nothing but lies. Fish AI? Doesn't exist in the actual game(Which BTW, Super Mario 64 pulled off). New engine? Nope just updated an old one. Complex kanine AI that works with Kinect? BARELY. I don't trust Activision with my money. Good thing too, I've saved over $200.
you say that but the trailer makes me feel otherwise. Talk is cheap show me instead
I've never understood all the hate on CoD. I like that Ghost is not BO2 and vice versa. I don't want CoD to be BF or UT. Each has its merits. If you don't like CoD, don't play it. But it seems some go out of their way to hate on one of the most popular gaming franchises, because it is the cool thing to do in your teens.
Not usually a huge fan of Call of Duty, was always more of a Battlefield fan, even though I always bought both games, and enjoyed the campaign more than multiplayer, but this is one I'm actually excited for, the video looks awesome, speeder bikes, the nanosuit type thing, so I think the campaign will be awesome, but hopefully with the multiplayer they'll go back to the good old days of some Modern Warfare 1.
I just want to see the fish...
Lets see if they can turn it around.
im just going to go ahead and call bullshit... if im wrong i'll gladly eat my words, and get back to enjoying a franchise that i used to love but if cod has taught me anything the last 3 years...its dont believe the hype or anything said by the dev team about anything...
"We're Treating Call Of Duty:Advanced Warfare Like A New IP" I hope this is true. Hopefully it'll have a great SP and MP! a mp that'll have a system to prevent gamers from hacking it and ruining it, and if they do, bam! ban the hell out of them. But who knows if that'll even happen! it'll be like heaven if they can make it work, but if not, it'll be.....
