Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer reveal Finished

It's over! Activision and Sledgehammer have unveiled the hyper-paced multiplayer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and you can either relive it in all its glory here or - and this is my advice - read Wes's impressions of how it all hangs together.

    same old ,same old,sick of future war games now like Neil said Vietnam or korea, even ww2 would be great.Theres exos in titanfall etc.. at least no zombie mode although a 8 player horde mode would be great.Also are those graphics on 360, look same as always. plus no destruction.
  • Neil_LCFC 12 months ago

    I wish they would go back to WW2 or vietnam or even the Wild West . All this advanced or modern garbage with heartbeat sensors/ cloaking/ double jumping is too much. Give us a pure shooter without all the gimmicks.
  • badonde 12 months ago

    I didn't think it was possible after ghost's crushed any interest for me in cod but, I'm actually fairly excited for this. Halo,unreal,titan fall with cods undeniably good gunplay. sounds good even to a cynical arse like moi.
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    next: call of duty: epic warfare
  • TagemandBagem 12 months ago

    That would be ...epic. #EpicCoD
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    Would have been funny for them to have read a few like that, at least. Nobodies actually going to have their opinion changed by a tweet
  • FunkeeFresh 12 months ago

    I hope Kevin Spacey will be a playable character for MP.
  • GaryStew1980 12 months ago

    Oh Tyronne so cynical, so true.
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    Darryl ?@DAZ3600 2mDay Zero means nothing with the awful service of Royal Mail! All you #CallofDuty fans be prepared for disappointment that day!
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    Darryl ?@DAZ3600 34m#CallofDuty needs to go back to its roots, #CallofDuty4 set the bar and now its all gone downhill!
  • patriot 12 months ago

    "call in to work then take it off" ... OK.
  • Tyronne 12 months ago

    #nottitanfallhonest
  • GaryStew1980 12 months ago

    Hmmm "epic" is really getting overused these days.
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    what was that hashtag they were telling people to use? We might as well try and add some balance here
  • TagemandBagem 12 months ago

    Riveting twitter PR statements.
  • GaryStew1980 12 months ago

    Hmmm Major Nelson has enough money not to dress like a poor version of Jeremy Clarkson.
  • Tyronne 12 months ago

    Is it wrong that the comments are actually better to look at than the game?
  • GaryStew1980 12 months ago

    Really looking forward to Call of Titan Battle Duty Field Fall.
  • Tyronne 12 months ago

    Please be happy and wired or they will shoot more puppies!

    'It's madness in here!' he says, in front of some people silently and aimlessly milling around

    SO MANY NEWS!
  • BritishBlue1 12 months ago

    Oh god, he's sweating like a pig in an abattoir
  • Tyronne 12 months ago

    T-shirt- small to medium sizes only.
  • TagemandBagem 12 months ago

    That t-shirt is strangling the life out of him.
  • neems 12 months ago

    Except for Quake of course. And Unreal. Oh and Enemy Territory. But otherwise, flat, yeah.
  • Tyronne 12 months ago

    *must keep breath in...must!*/ripppppppppppppps
  • HiFiHair 12 months ago

    Back. In. The. Day.
  • BigDaddy82 12 months ago

    Looks like they even stole the Orbital Strike from Crysis multiplayer as well as the suit
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    nice @Avaloner are people pre-ordering playing one day before or are those who have not playing a day later?
  • kadooosh 12 months ago

    Going to be honest, I think it looked really fun. At least its actually a bit different, still fast paced and has that arcade addictive gameplay.
  • TagemandBagem 12 months ago

    Expert E-sports ...commentator.
  • KrispyKrispy 12 months ago

    That T-shirt looks a bit tight.
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    Available a Day Early with extra XP, or non Preorder-ers Punished..

  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    if we don't pre-order maybe they will sell out all the digital copies before we buy it :p
  • Tyronne 12 months ago

  • blarty 12 months ago

    Bit of amateur knifing there..... not at all impressed
  • Avaloner 12 months ago

    Or to put it another way... if you don't pre order you cannot play on release.
  • TagemandBagem 12 months ago

    Needs more Inception horns
  • blarty 12 months ago

    @neems It's been the same forever, if you don't pick it up at midnight you get stomped into oblivion by 9am
  • robcad 12 months ago

    God the health looks terrible, even worse than ghosts!
  • tullos 12 months ago

    An extra day to be hacked.....
  • neems 12 months ago

    If you don't pre-order, you will get stomped into oblivion.
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    Nvm, that would have required effort. They're just releasing the game late, because that's totally a good thing.
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    And when your retailer cocks up delivery or royal mail posts it to your neighbours how do i get my 24hours back?
  • iconld 12 months ago

    Ow noozz.. better than Beta! Day Zero!
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    i wish people stop pre-ordering games. hooray for reviews :)
  • Avaloner 12 months ago

    You also pay much earlier
  • JiveHound 12 months ago

    It will be weird playing this and not being able to wall run....
  • Xensor 12 months ago

    A whole day earlier? I'm salivating! :p
  • Tyronne 12 months ago

    wow 1 day earlier!/wets himself.

    Is this the game that finally breaks the billion dollar series?

  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    My guess is activation has moved onto the HD remake gravy-train
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    @Rob_Nomad exactly lol.
  • neems 12 months ago

    Engage whoop!
  • HiFiHair 12 months ago

    Bayonetta-style one button mode!
  • Angrycop 12 months ago

    lol.. creativity
  • Avaloner 12 months ago

    I think this might be the first COD I buy since MW2
  • TagemandBagem 12 months ago

    Back to the toilet to powder their noses
  • blarty 12 months ago

    The irony of 'One more thing' with Eric 'I told you I'm not Columbo' Hirschberg is thick in the air.
  • MothFlesh 12 months ago

    "creativity"
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    @hazzatori "we at treyarch have returned cod to its roots" they can always sell it as a feature :D (remember this when windows 9 will come out)
  • HiFiHair 12 months ago

    Many Bothans died to bring us this information.
  • slowdog1976 12 months ago

    did.....did he just drop a Titans bollock from orbit?
  • FunkeeFresh 12 months ago

    @TagemandBagem can't unhear
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    What are they going to do next year when Treyach doesn't have exosuits?
  • patchbox360 12 months ago

    Titanfall's movement is superior
  • neems 12 months ago

    Server browser for PC?Haha just kidding, of course not.
  • Tyronne 12 months ago

    Upling..er I mean Speedball...wow...gaming like its 20 years ago.
  • TagemandBagem 12 months ago

    they look very nervous, aren't they? :)

  • FunkeeFresh 12 months ago

    ...yeah, he did
  • Xensor 12 months ago

    It seems everything's enhanced my the new exo-movement :p Does it enhance toilet movements? :)
  • Avaloner 12 months ago

    Horizontality always gets the short end of the stick
  • BritishBlue1 12 months ago

    Does it have Hardcore S&D? That's all I have to know.
  • HiFiHair 12 months ago

    S'uplink.
  • robcad 12 months ago

    So I'm guessing there is only going to be one map with a dynamic event, just like ghosts
  • chasejamie 12 months ago

    YTILACITREV
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    verticality is good
  • Sodding_Gamer 12 months ago

    God knows how they are going to balance this game. Anyways to me it doesn't look that innovative if you ask me.
  • neems 12 months ago

    What is hardpoint?
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    i looks better than ghosts though, and i didnt like Titanfalls titans, so maybe this year...
  • HiFiHair 12 months ago

    VERTICALITY
  • Tyronne 12 months ago

    call of titanfall then by the looks of it.
  • patchbox360 12 months ago

    dry
  • neems 12 months ago

    lol @SammooreI always used to play Hardcore S&D; people used to TK all the time and say "Sorry, your name didn't come up."Wtf? We're wearing uniforms, try looking first.
  • pRiM8 12 months ago

    VERTICALITY!!!!!!!
  • chasejamie 12 months ago

    Verticality
  • BritishBlue1 12 months ago

    Lazor beams, my brothers' not going to like that. Apparently sci-fi weapons are for nerds.
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    i find kind of funny that people criticise COD for being the same every year (and it's not) and when they introduce A LOT of changes (even if they didn't invented them) it's still not OK :D just joking
  • robcad 12 months ago

    @Sammoore; what about hardcore?
  • MothFlesh 12 months ago

    Sweet Prison Map.Capture the Soap
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    @neems; you use the colour of the name above their head, just like a real soldier
  • BritishBlue1 12 months ago

    I'm not a fan of Nuketown. The only reason it's even popular is because it's possible to wrack up ridiculous amounts of EXP.
  • neems 12 months ago

    There'll be no positivity here please Mr. Robinson, this is Eurogamer.
  • Tyronne 12 months ago

    They could have an animatronic arse on stage just farting and this would still sell loads.
  • IcemanAFC 12 months ago

    Where are the fish?
  • neems 12 months ago

    How do you tell the teams apart? Nobody's wearing a uniform.
  • JYM60 12 months ago

    Will still buy if Nuketown is included.
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    There actually was a swimming pool in one of the trailers. Doubt there are toddlers though.
  • slowdog1976 12 months ago

    so, we're up to pick 13 now? how long before "pick....just everything. take it all"
  • robcad 12 months ago

    The firing range would be better if the targets had the health of a player
  • JYM60 12 months ago

    Nice they mentioned Black-ops 2. Probably the last decent COD ever.
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    Are they including swimming pools?
  • MothFlesh 12 months ago

    @neems exactly.
  • FunkeeFresh 12 months ago

    YA! COOL SHIT! DUAL GOGGLES
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    ah, Destiny-style character customisation UI
  • neems 12 months ago

    Where you have to support the children of all the NPCs you've killed?
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    Id prefer a remastered Modern Warfare 2
  • robcad 12 months ago

    I would have hoped the perks would include things like quickdraw and a fast hand that works with guns as apposed to the exo skeleton
  • Xensor 12 months ago

    Call of Duty: The Sims :)
  • IcemanAFC 12 months ago

    This all sounds too overly complicated. Why can't they just keep it simple
  • MothFlesh 12 months ago

    Thought that said create an orphanage....
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    Guys i'm still not on the pessimistic side. i've played cod for some years now and i'm still having fun (with ghosts too). i only need good maps and mechanics that aren't overpowered over the others :)
  • JiveHound 12 months ago

    @Martin. Ghosts looks woeful on X1 at least so sadly not the best comparison.
  • blarty 12 months ago

    All they need is the lag, slowdowns and impressive screen tearing and your journey to the dark side, I mean Titanfall, is complete
  • marcgiu 12 months ago

    quality - they've put Duck Hunt in the game!!!
  • chasejamie 12 months ago

    I'm confused.
  • HiFiHair 12 months ago

    Dem cuffs.
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    Obviously designed 2 years ago for 360 and PS3 generation, nothing here would tax the PS4 or XBONE.
  • JYM60 12 months ago

    @Rob_Nomad Haven't Sledgehammer done this one year after Ghosts?
  • JiveHound 12 months ago

    How much Titanfall can you fit in?!
  • slowdog1976 12 months ago

    They said it would change the way we play COD, and theyre right. we wont bother
  • HiFiHair 12 months ago

    I'm finding the stilted corporate banter strangely charming. They've started antagonistic towards one another, but I'm sure by the end they'll be thick friends.
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    @JYM60 cod development is now 3 year long. treyarch is next year
  • blarty 12 months ago

    dear god, give me a ballistic knife, no score streaks and a unfashionably stupid need to run at people shouting, 'This is Sparta!'
  • JYM60 12 months ago

    Are Treyarch even doing COD any more? This is two non Treyarch in a row..
  • JiveHound 12 months ago

    I hate to be that guy but the graphics are on the modest side.
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    @sammoore and what is exactly new that Destiny introduces? /sarcasm
  • AaronTurner 12 months ago

    Wow, these guys are hitting up the smack downs so serious. Man they be beating down on each other hard! The other guy is beating him off too!
  • slowdog1976 12 months ago

    God I hope Treyarch deliver the goods. Again.
  • JYM60 12 months ago

    Looks like Unreal Tournament now too.
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    I wonder if they'll be able to shove in some Destiny elements as well before release.
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    thanks @McShiftyi never understood why people said in Ghosts we don't have pick-10 anymore..when it seems to me it just became pick-12.i'm all in for Scorestreak return :) seems more fair and can be further balanced during the year.
  • hulkamania78 12 months ago

    The cloak and Stim ?? Why don't they buy Respawn and get Cince back total rip off but I love Titanfall so probably get it
  • Uncompetative 12 months ago

    I'm confused. All this is too complicated. Just give me a knife.
  • crankigeek 12 months ago

    @hazzatori moderators ;)
  • marcgiu 12 months ago

    Lieutenant Dan - you got magic legs!!!
  • robcad 12 months ago

    #Mothflesh or a badger glove that shoots ostrich eggs!
  • JYM60 12 months ago

    COD needed to go back to COD2/COD4 roots. This is once again too much...
  • Xensor 12 months ago

    I want a gun that shoots other guns and they shoot electrified homing exploding bees.
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    You'll customize the dogs, or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark, they shoot bees at you? Well, go ahead! Do your worst!
  • neems 12 months ago

    @hazzatori I'd love to see a presentation with hecklers on twitter.
  • McShifty 12 months ago

    @rob_nomad Two weapon limit and regenerating health, for better or worse.
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    How come all the tweets are positive? hmmmm.....
  • neems 12 months ago

    Pick 13 takes everything you loved about pick 10, BUT ADDS 3 TO IT.
  • MothFlesh 12 months ago

    Hundreds of Customisations.Can I craft a gun that shoots bees?
  • JiveHound 12 months ago

    One on the right is a moonlighting wrestler?
  • crankigeek 12 months ago

    leave out the singleplayer campaign elements which I guess include K. Spacey and make the game cheaper
  • slowdog1976 12 months ago

    woo-hoo, i got quoted
  • nofriendo 12 months ago

    So basically titanfall movement with battlefield environmental changes and battlepacks
  • JiveHound 12 months ago

    I don't see anything that's going to make COD relevant this gen.
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    @JYM60; at least they should have a less cringey name for it
  • slowdog1976 12 months ago

    this franchise is losing its identity rapidly. i'm watching this and seeing a handful of different games fooling around together under a cod duvet..
  • MothFlesh 12 months ago

    Well. Looks a lot better than Hardline IMO.
  • robcad 12 months ago

    Will things like helmets add armour or just be for show?
  • Xensor 12 months ago

    Sooo... like BF4 battlepacks?
  • JYM60 12 months ago

    And of course BF4. Looks like there's some LEVELUTIONZZ in there
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    we had rocket jump in quake 1, double jump in UT 2003 and cloak in crysis 1 :) and i don't know what halo brought..
  • blarty 12 months ago

    I knew Crytek were in trouble, but I didn't realise they'd sold Crysis to Activision.
  • JiveHound 12 months ago

    Look at them trying to make out that Titanfall doesn't exist.They actually said 'innovations'.
  • crankigeek 12 months ago

    Indeed no Titans.. I meant in terms of the verticality and parkour style elements... Respawn is CoD anyway I guess
  • Ror 12 months ago

    It's like Titanfall meets Crysis 2 meets Halo 4...
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    Seems more like a titanfall-crysis hybrid to me
  • Xensor 12 months ago

    Sooo... Titanfall without the Titans? :p
  • crankigeek 12 months ago

    Looks like Titanfall?
  • MothFlesh 12 months ago

    They really should have Kevin Spacey Bots for the MP demonstration.
  • robcad 12 months ago

    Will the exo skeleton be available to all or just those who have earned it?
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    is it just me or basic movement seems a bit slower this time?
  • arty 12 months ago

    The SFX on this stream suck ;)
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    try chrome, that's what works for me
  • neems 12 months ago

    Forgive my ignorance, but how do I get full screen?
  • Brastin 12 months ago

    I tried, have the same with Internet explorer and Firefox
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    try another browser
  • Brastin 12 months ago

    Same as Ror1984
  • Ror 12 months ago

    Master volume's all the way up, I just have no audio from this stream - either here or on the official site.
  • Brastin 12 months ago

    I dont have any audio in this livestream.. normally i dont have any issues
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    MS learn nothing, stupid fake audience reactions again!
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    My audio's fine, but the whole thing's a bit quiet; people with issues, try adjusting your master volume
  • Brastin 12 months ago

    Aint have audio here aswell...
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    "This Fall"

    Bush jumping?
  • hazzatori 12 months ago

    Yes
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    Can you give us any hints?
  • Ror 12 months ago

    Am I the only one getting no audio..?
  • Rob_Nomad 12 months ago

    i wish the comment bar was upper in this page, near the video
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    Uh, Martin: there's a post coming up with you saying '25 minutes to go' timestamped at about 12 minutes to go. Either there's some immense lag at some point or you've paused and resumed the stream without noticing.
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    We just had a MP dlc reveal before the MP reveal. Welcome to the games industry in 2014.
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    Do we know what is being revealed exactly? Just a 'gameplay' trailer? Real recorded gameplay? Live gameplay?
  • peeps 12 months ago

    hoping for something interesting. Played every COD and despite how similar each game has been they have always been enjoyable, except for Ghosts. I dunno what it was about Ghosts but I don't even think I hit max rank before I got bored. I think COD fatigue is setting in for a lot of people now so this game really really needs to do something new
  • zetarxenil1 12 months ago

    Is there any way to watch this on fullscreen? Can't find this option anywhere
  • zain-lol 12 months ago

    thanks sam
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    @zain-lol; where the placeholder image at the top is. It's an embedded stream rather than a static image, there's just nothing being streamed yet.
  • zain-lol 12 months ago

    where can i watch the reveal??
  • HereToTellJokes 12 months ago

    I wanted to be a baker, but there's just so many Rolls to choose from.
  • ucankurbaga 12 months ago

    yea I hope this game features WW2 flashbacks at some point, future is boring.
  • Simatron3000 12 months ago

    cant see how the new cod can match the action of titanfall without ripping it off. guess we'll find out soon!
  • blarty 12 months ago

    I fully expect, nay demand, that the efforts in Call of Duty Ghosts are taken to the next level- case in point http://pixeledcourier.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/dog-weapn.jpg

  • ZackRoyer 12 months ago

    I miss the Second World War setting in FPS games...
  • HereToTellJokes 12 months ago

    Why is there no modern day army games coming out? Both battlefield and COD have changed their setting...
  • Sammoore 12 months ago

    So, any predictions? I'm going to with;1) Blatantly scripted polite in-game chat2)Jetpacks=Innovation=Franchised savedand 3)People barely being able to sprint for more than five seconds despite being in power armour
  • blarty 12 months ago

    'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' boils down to one thing...'No Ballistic Knife..... no sale'
  • Humperfunk 12 months ago

    What?! There's a multiplayer mode in Call of Duty?! Thank fuck they're holding a specific reveal otherwise no one would ever have known!
  • Hieronymus 12 months ago

    All these food puns and references covering Gamescom are the würst thing I have read all day.

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

But I haven't said a sausage.

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooood afternoon Eurogamer. We're a few hours away from this evening's event kicking off, but that's no reason not to sit here and oscillate in excitement at what's to come.

15:23 By Martin Robinson

Alright, so we've a fair idea of what's to come - a peek at a new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare trailer as well as the reveal of its multiplayer. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU ALREADY KNEW THE NEW CALL OF DUTY HAS MULTIPLAYER?

15:24 By Martin Robinson

15:25 By Martin Robinson

We may even get an appearance from famous Hollywood man Kevin Spacey!

16:46 By Martin Robinson

16:46 By Martin Robinson

Will Colin return?

16:47 By Martin Robinson

16:47 By Martin Robinson

Or is Sledgehammer about to take Infinity Ward's pioneering work to the next level?

16:49 By Martin Robinson

16:49 By Martin Robinson

And how many hours will pass before I tire of looking up pictures of cats with guns?

17:01 By Martin Robinson

One hour to go. ONE HOUR TO GO. I'm ringing a klaxon here at my desk. Well, pinging a bike bell at least.

17:30 By Martin Robinson

We've only got the feed supplied by Activision, where it seems there's no option to go full-screen. Sorry!

zetarxenil1 says:

Is there any way to watch this on fullscreen? Can't find this option anywhere

17:43 By Martin Robinson

We have acting man Mr. Spacey in our live stream now, which at least proves the stream works and we haven't just been hosting a still image for the past four hours.

17:43 By Martin Robinson

I was getting quite attached to that image, mind.

17:47 By Martin Robinson

25 minutes to go - so how many times can they loop the existing trailers?

17:51 By Martin Robinson

I was posting from the past. Also my stream had timed out - I am now back on your timeline.

Sammoore says:

Uh, Martin: there's a post coming up with you saying '25 minutes to go' timestamped at about 12 minutes to go. Either there's some immense lag at some point or you've paused and resumed the stream without noticing.

17:54 By Martin Robinson

Glen Schofield - the most hench man in gaming? He wouldn't look out of place in a Gears of War game.

17:59 By Martin Robinson

One minute klaxon! Sixty second bike bell!

18:01 By Martin Robinson

And we're live, with the slightly unnerving Major Nelson and the lovely Graeme Boyd.

18:02 By Martin Robinson

This event's community focussed - and we're about to see a selection of that community now.

18:02 By Martin Robinson

Press had a look at the game earlier on, and are under embargo.

18:03 By Martin Robinson

That includes us - Wesley Yin-Poole saw the game earlier, and will be giving you in-depth impressions at 7pm BST.

18:03 By Martin Robinson

(I've read them myself, so I'm going to have to pretend a lot of this stuff is a surprise)

We're getting some lovely close-ups of the tightly packed wraps that are served up at events like this.

18:04 By Martin Robinson

A little too much mayo for my liking in them.

18:05 By Martin Robinson

I don't think I can. Obviously it's not the only multiplayer with exoskeletons to come out this year, so I'd expect similarities there.

Sammoore says:

Can you give us any hints?

18:06 By Martin Robinson

And we're properly, properly go now.

18:07 By Martin Robinson

Eric Hamburglar is leading the show.

18:08 By Martin Robinson

The most handsome of the execs. He just *belongs* in a Porsche rolling around LA.

18:08 By Martin Robinson

Sorry for the issues - it's little consolation, but the audio is fine here so the problem seems to be isolated.

Ror says:

Master volume's all the way up, I just have no audio from this stream - either here or on the official site.

18:10 By Martin Robinson

We're into a hearty chunk of multiplayer now, which is very, very fast-paced.

18:11 By Martin Robinson

Players have access to host of augmentations - so there's sped-up strafing, double jumps and a clock or two to keep things interesting.

18:11 By Martin Robinson

Oh, and jetpacks.

18:12 By Martin Robinson

After that fairly breathless look, Sledgehammer take the stage.

18:15 By Martin Robinson

I think you probably have to be there to appreciate this moment. Because from a stream it all seems a bit stilted. Anyway, as the video showed, the Exo suit transforms movement.

18:15 By Martin Robinson

Dodging and boosting are part of the player's vocabulary.

18:15 By Martin Robinson

Boost-jump, dash, slam and dodge all new moves.

18:16 By Martin Robinson

Obviously, this impacts map design. I guess there'll be a lot more verticality.

18:17 By Martin Robinson

It's not really been made clear, but I imagine it's part of the basic moveset.

robcad says:

Will the exo skeleton be available to all or just those who have earned it?

18:18 By Martin Robinson

10/10 would play for sure.

MothFlesh says:

They really should have Kevin Spacey Bots for the MP demonstration.

18:19 By Martin Robinson

It does all look mightily like Titanfall without Titans, as several of you have pointed out. There does seem to be a more complex lattice of abilities, though.

18:20 By Martin Robinson

There's a new reward system called Supply Drops. It's like loot drops, essentially, complete with rare item drops.

18:22 By Martin Robinson

Sounds kind of sexy. I like how Diablo's got in there as well.

this franchise is losing its identity rapidly. i'm watching this and seeing a handful of different games fooling around together under a cod duvet..

18:25 By Martin Robinson

Pick 13 is a new approach to loadouts that seems to add a little more balance into the mix.

18:25 By Martin Robinson

They're hardly going to stream to the world the death threats they're doubtless getting from angry children.

hazzatori says:

How come all the tweets are positive? hmmmm.....

18:26 By Martin Robinson

I have no idea what you're on about. But I like it.

robcad says:

#Mothflesh or a badger glove that shoots ostrich eggs!

18:28 By Martin Robinson

Co-op streaks allows you to bring a friend along with you when you're on a good run.

18:28 By Martin Robinson

It looks like a huge improvement over Ghosts - but you can only tell so much from a stream.

JiveHound says:

I hate to be that guy but the graphics are on the modest side.

18:30 By Martin Robinson

There's now a firing range that allows you to test your load-outs/perks/arsenal.

18:31 By Martin Robinson

It looks a bit like the VR Missions from MGS, and that of course is a good thing.

18:32 By Martin Robinson

Yay for some positivity - I too quite like what we're seeing.

Rob_Nomad says:

Guys i'm still not on the pessimistic side. i've played cod for some years now and i'm still having fun (with ghosts too). i only need good maps and mechanics that aren't overpowered over the others :)

18:35 By Martin Robinson

In between matches you can now examine other players and their loadouts.

18:36 By Martin Robinson

Now on to map design.

18:36 By Martin Robinson

We're getting treated to four maps tonight.

18:36 By Martin Robinson

Which suggests this is going all the way to 7pm and my dinner's going to have to wait )-:

18:37 By Martin Robinson

Maps seem very much to be built around the boost jump.

18:40 By Martin Robinson

I see what you did there...

chasejamie says:

Verticality

18:40 By Martin Robinson

Game modes are also built around V E R T I C A L I T Y.

18:41 By Martin Robinson

Hardpoint returns.

18:41 By Martin Robinson

And Uplink is a new mode.

18:42 By Martin Robinson

Uplink looks like a noisy netball, with you passing a satellite between players.

18:42 By Martin Robinson

Lolz

Avaloner says:

Horizontality always gets the short end of the stick

18:45 By Martin Robinson

There's one final announcement to come as Glen and Michael leave the stage.

18:46 By Martin Robinson

If you pre-order the game, you get it one day earlier.

18:46 By Martin Robinson

And the initiative is called Day Zero.

18:47 By Martin Robinson

You'll get double XP on that day, too - and this is available across all platforms.

18:48 By Martin Robinson

And with that we wrap. Join us tomorrow for a bit more meat to get stuck into, with Microsoft kicking things off at 1pm.
