Sledgehammer Games’ first entry in the Call of Duty franchise is the freshest that the series has been in quite some time. It shows that even the every-other-year trade-off between Infinity Ward and Treyarch has caused some burnout. With a new pair of eyes looking at the series, many changes have been made – and all for the better.
Power changes everything starting today, as Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition is now available worldwide. Eager fans lined up at midnight at thousands of retail locations around the globe to get access to the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition, available today. The new title from Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. [Nasdaq: ATVI], marks the first Call of Duty® game led by developer Sledgehammer Games and the first time for a three-year development cycle. Advanced Warfare also introduces the exoskeleton – the biggest core movement change in franchise history. With the power of the exo, players can boost jump, dodge, slam and more through a visceral and compelling new story; built from the ground up multiplayer experience; and a brand new cooperative mode for the complete entertainment package that only Call of Dutycan deliver.
Activision is delivering a smooth transition for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system fans interested in playing Sledgehammer Games’ new title on next-gen.
