Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's multiplayer detailed in new video

Watch a seven minute "deep dive" on all the new features.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare brings a lot more to the franchise than Kevin Spacey, so Activision released a seven minute video detailing all the additions this latest installment brings to the series' multiplayer.

The EXO suits have been detailed quite a bit before, but now we get a better sense of exactly what abilities and perks the cyber armour includes.

We also get to see how the new "Pick 13" system works wherein we choose two weapons along with an attachment for each, three wildcards, three perks, two exo abilities, and for the first time players get to pick their own rewards for score streaks.

This trailer also details the new Uplink game mode wherein two teams compete to pass a satellite (represented by a ball) to their opponent's uplink point. Players can pass the satellite back and forth, but you can't carry a weapon while holding it, so you can actually use it offensively by tossing it to a foe then shooting them as soon as they catch it.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be out on 4th November for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC. Customers who pre-order it will receive the game one day early.
