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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year ago

    next: call of duty: epic warfare
  • TagemandBagem 1 year ago

    That would be ...epic. #EpicCoD
  • Sammoore 1 year 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 1 year ago

    I hope Kevin Spacey will be a playable character for MP.
  • GaryStew1980 1 year ago

    Oh Tyronne so cynical, so true.
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

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

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

    "call in to work then take it off" ... OK.

  • GaryStew1980 1 year ago

    Hmmm "epic" is really getting overused these days.
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    what was that hashtag they were telling people to use? We might as well try and add some balance here
  • TagemandBagem 1 year ago

    Riveting twitter PR statements.
  • GaryStew1980 1 year ago

    Hmmm Major Nelson has enough money not to dress like a poor version of Jeremy Clarkson.
  • Tyronne 1 year ago

    Is it wrong that the comments are actually better to look at than the game?
  • GaryStew1980 1 year ago

    Really looking forward to Call of Titan Battle Duty Field Fall.
  • Tyronne 1 year ago

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

    Oh god, he's sweating like a pig in an abattoir
  • Tyronne 1 year ago

    T-shirt- small to medium sizes only.
  • TagemandBagem 1 year ago

    That t-shirt is strangling the life out of him.
  • neems 1 year ago

    Except for Quake of course. And Unreal. Oh and Enemy Territory. But otherwise, flat, yeah.

    Back. In. The. Day.
  • BigDaddy82 1 year ago

    Looks like they even stole the Orbital Strike from Crysis multiplayer as well as the suit
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year ago

    nice @Avaloner are people pre-ordering playing one day before or are those who have not playing a day later?
  • kadooosh 1 year 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 1 year ago

    Expert E-sports ...commentator.
  • KrispyKrispy 1 year ago

    That T-shirt looks a bit tight.
  • hazzatori 1 year ago

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

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

  • blarty 1 year ago

    Bit of amateur knifing there..... not at all impressed
  • Avaloner 1 year ago

    Or to put it another way... if you don't pre order you cannot play on release.
  • TagemandBagem 1 year ago

    Needs more Inception horns
  • blarty 1 year 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 1 year ago

    God the health looks terrible, even worse than ghosts!
  • tullos 1 year ago

    An extra day to be hacked.....
  • neems 1 year ago

    If you don't pre-order, you will get stomped into oblivion.
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    Nvm, that would have required effort. They're just releasing the game late, because that's totally a good thing.
  • hazzatori 1 year ago

    And when your retailer cocks up delivery or royal mail posts it to your neighbours how do i get my 24hours back?
  • iconld 1 year ago

    Ow noozz.. better than Beta! Day Zero!
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year ago

    i wish people stop pre-ordering games. hooray for reviews :)
  • Avaloner 1 year ago

    You also pay much earlier
  • JiveHound 1 year ago

    It will be weird playing this and not being able to wall run....

    A whole day earlier? I'm salivating! :p
  • Tyronne 1 year ago

    wow 1 day earlier!/wets himself.

    I think this might be the first COD I buy since MW2

    Back to the toilet to powder their noses
  • blarty 1 year ago

    The irony of 'One more thing' with Eric 'I told you I'm not Columbo' Hirschberg is thick in the air.
  • MothFlesh 1 year ago

    "creativity"
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year 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 1 year ago

    Many Bothans died to bring us this information.
  • slowdog1976 1 year ago

    did.....did he just drop a Titans bollock from orbit?
  • FunkeeFresh 1 year ago

    @TagemandBagem can't unhear
  • hazzatori 1 year ago

    What are they going to do next year when Treyach doesn't have exosuits?

    Titanfall's movement is superior

    It seems everything's enhanced my the new exo-movement :p Does it enhance toilet movements? :)
  • Avaloner 1 year ago

    Horizontality always gets the short end of the stick
  • BritishBlue1 1 year ago

    Does it have Hardcore S&D? That's all I have to know.
  • HiFiHair 1 year ago

    S'uplink.
  • robcad 1 year ago

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

    verticality is good
  • Sodding_Gamer 1 year 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 1 year ago

    What is hardpoint?
  • hazzatori 1 year ago

    i looks better than ghosts though, and i didnt like Titanfalls titans, so maybe this year...
  • HiFiHair 1 year ago

    VERTICALITY
  • Tyronne 1 year ago

    call of titanfall then by the looks of it.
  • patchbox360 1 year ago

    dry
  • neems 1 year 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 1 year ago

    VERTICALITY!!!!!!!
  • chasejamie 1 year ago

    Verticality
  • BritishBlue1 1 year ago

    Lazor beams, my brothers' not going to like that. Apparently sci-fi weapons are for nerds.
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year 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 1 year ago

    @Sammoore; what about hardcore?
  • MothFlesh 1 year ago

    Sweet Prison Map.Capture the Soap
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    @neems; you use the colour of the name above their head, just like a real soldier
  • BritishBlue1 1 year 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 1 year ago

    There'll be no positivity here please Mr. Robinson, this is Eurogamer.
  • Tyronne 1 year ago

    They could have an animatronic arse on stage just farting and this would still sell loads.
  • IcemanAFC 1 year ago

    Where are the fish?
  • neems 1 year ago

    How do you tell the teams apart? Nobody's wearing a uniform.
  • JYM60 1 year ago

    Will still buy if Nuketown is included.
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    There actually was a swimming pool in one of the trailers. Doubt there are toddlers though.
  • slowdog1976 1 year ago

    so, we're up to pick 13 now? how long before "pick....just everything. take it all"
  • robcad 1 year ago

    The firing range would be better if the targets had the health of a player
  • JYM60 1 year ago

    Nice they mentioned Black-ops 2. Probably the last decent COD ever.
  • hazzatori 1 year ago

    Are they including swimming pools?
  • MothFlesh 1 year ago

    @neems exactly.
  • FunkeeFresh 1 year ago

    YA! COOL SHIT! DUAL GOGGLES
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    ah, Destiny-style character customisation UI
  • neems 1 year ago

    Where you have to support the children of all the NPCs you've killed?
  • hazzatori 1 year ago

    Id prefer a remastered Modern Warfare 2
  • robcad 1 year 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 1 year ago

    Call of Duty: The Sims :)
  • IcemanAFC 1 year ago

    This all sounds too overly complicated. Why can't they just keep it simple
  • MothFlesh 1 year ago

    Thought that said create an orphanage....
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year 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 1 year ago

    @Martin. Ghosts looks woeful on X1 at least so sadly not the best comparison.
  • blarty 1 year 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 1 year ago

    quality - they've put Duck Hunt in the game!!!
  • chasejamie 1 year ago

    I'm confused.
  • HiFiHair 1 year ago

    Dem cuffs.
  • hazzatori 1 year ago

    Obviously designed 2 years ago for 360 and PS3 generation, nothing here would tax the PS4 or XBONE.
  • JYM60 1 year ago

    @Rob_Nomad Haven't Sledgehammer done this one year after Ghosts?
  • JiveHound 1 year ago

    How much Titanfall can you fit in?!
  • slowdog1976 1 year ago

    They said it would change the way we play COD, and theyre right. we wont bother
  • HiFiHair 1 year 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 1 year ago

    @JYM60 cod development is now 3 year long. treyarch is next year
  • blarty 1 year 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 1 year ago

    Are Treyarch even doing COD any more? This is two non Treyarch in a row..
  • JiveHound 1 year ago

    I hate to be that guy but the graphics are on the modest side.
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year ago

    @sammoore and what is exactly new that Destiny introduces? /sarcasm
  • AaronTurner 1 year 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 1 year ago

    God I hope Treyarch deliver the goods. Again.
  • JYM60 1 year ago

    Looks like Unreal Tournament now too.
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    I wonder if they'll be able to shove in some Destiny elements as well before release.
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year ago

    I'm confused. All this is too complicated. Just give me a knife.

  • JYM60 1 year ago

    COD needed to go back to COD2/COD4 roots. This is once again too much...
  • Xensor 1 year ago

    I want a gun that shoots other guns and they shoot electrified homing exploding bees.
  • hazzatori 1 year 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 1 year ago

    @hazzatori I'd love to see a presentation with hecklers on twitter.
  • McShifty 1 year ago

    @rob_nomad Two weapon limit and regenerating health, for better or worse.
  • hazzatori 1 year ago

    How come all the tweets are positive? hmmmm.....
  • neems 1 year ago

    Pick 13 takes everything you loved about pick 10, BUT ADDS 3 TO IT.
  • MothFlesh 1 year ago

    Hundreds of Customisations.Can I craft a gun that shoots bees?
  • JiveHound 1 year ago

    One on the right is a moonlighting wrestler?
  • crankigeek 1 year ago

    leave out the singleplayer campaign elements which I guess include K. Spacey and make the game cheaper
  • slowdog1976 1 year ago

    woo-hoo, i got quoted
  • nofriendo 1 year ago

    So basically titanfall movement with battlefield environmental changes and battlepacks
  • JiveHound 1 year ago

    I don't see anything that's going to make COD relevant this gen.
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    @JYM60; at least they should have a less cringey name for it
  • slowdog1976 1 year 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 1 year ago

    Well. Looks a lot better than Hardline IMO.
  • robcad 1 year ago

    Will things like helmets add armour or just be for show?
  • Xensor 1 year ago

    Sooo... like BF4 battlepacks?
  • JYM60 1 year ago

    And of course BF4. Looks like there's some LEVELUTIONZZ in there
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year 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 1 year ago

    I knew Crytek were in trouble, but I didn't realise they'd sold Crysis to Activision.
  • JiveHound 1 year ago

    Look at them trying to make out that Titanfall doesn't exist.They actually said 'innovations'.
  • crankigeek 1 year ago

    Indeed no Titans.. I meant in terms of the verticality and parkour style elements... Respawn is CoD anyway I guess
  • Ror 1 year ago

    It's like Titanfall meets Crysis 2 meets Halo 4...
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    Seems more like a titanfall-crysis hybrid to me
  • Xensor 1 year ago

    Sooo... Titanfall without the Titans? :p
  • crankigeek 1 year ago

    Looks like Titanfall?
  • MothFlesh 1 year ago

    They really should have Kevin Spacey Bots for the MP demonstration.
  • robcad 1 year ago

    Will the exo skeleton be available to all or just those who have earned it?
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year ago

    is it just me or basic movement seems a bit slower this time?
  • arty 1 year ago

    The SFX on this stream suck ;)
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    try chrome, that's what works for me
  • neems 1 year ago

    Forgive my ignorance, but how do I get full screen?
  • Brastin 1 year ago

    I tried, have the same with Internet explorer and Firefox
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year ago

    try another browser
  • Brastin 1 year ago

    Same as Ror1984
  • Ror 1 year ago

    Master volume's all the way up, I just have no audio from this stream - either here or on the official site.
  • Brastin 1 year ago

    I dont have any audio in this livestream.. normally i dont have any issues
  • hazzatori 1 year ago

    MS learn nothing, stupid fake audience reactions again!
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    My audio's fine, but the whole thing's a bit quiet; people with issues, try adjusting your master volume
  • Brastin 1 year ago

    Aint have audio here aswell...
  • hazzatori 1 year ago

    "This Fall"

    Can you give us any hints?

    Am I the only one getting no audio..?
  • Rob_Nomad 1 year ago

    i wish the comment bar was upper in this page, near the video
  • Sammoore 1 year 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 1 year ago

    We just had a MP dlc reveal before the MP reveal. Welcome to the games industry in 2014.
  • Sammoore 1 year ago

    Do we know what is being revealed exactly? Just a 'gameplay' trailer? Real recorded gameplay? Live gameplay?
  • peeps 1 year 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 1 year ago

    Is there any way to watch this on fullscreen? Can't find this option anywhere
  • zain-lol 1 year ago

    thanks sam
  • Sammoore 1 year 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 1 year ago

    where can i watch the reveal??
  • HereToTellJokes 1 year ago

    I wanted to be a baker, but there's just so many Rolls to choose from.
  • ucankurbaga 1 year ago

    yea I hope this game features WW2 flashbacks at some point, future is boring.
  • Simatron3000 1 year ago

    cant see how the new cod can match the action of titanfall without ripping it off. guess we'll find out soon!
  • blarty 1 year 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

    Why is there no modern day army games coming out? Both battlefield and COD have changed their setting...
  • Sammoore 1 year 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 1 year ago

    'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' boils down to one thing...'No Ballistic Knife..... no sale'
  • Humperfunk 1 year 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 1 year 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...

15:12 By Martin Robinson

But I haven't said a sausage.

Hieronymus says:

15:22 By Martin Robinson

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)

18:04 By Martin Robinson

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.

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.
