It Has A Name | Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Got a Trailer

It Has A Name | Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Got a Trailer

The next Call of Duty has dropped a debut trailer ahead of its May 4th reveal. The series seems to have stuck to its guns with another Warfare title along with the most distinct sci-fi flavor we’ve seen so far in the franchise, boasting powered exoskeletons, hover bikes, and more drones than you can shake a stick at. Oh, and it involves jumping across the Golden Gate Bridge in tune to explosions.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s slated for a Nov. 4th release according to its trailer above and its platforms at launch are currently unknown. The Sledgehammer Games made FPS takes place across an apparent near-future United States embroiled in social, economic, and political conflicts across the globe with private military companies at their center.

Last but not least, it seems to star none other than Frank Underwood himself, or at least Kevin Spacey’s yet-to-be named character giving a damn good imitation of him. The House of Cards star is as graphically rendered as money can buy these days and proves once again how far video-games have come in terms of facial mo-cap. His undisclosed role leaves much to the imagination, but given his world-domination speech, it’s not a leap to think he just might be the villain or grim-faced anti-hero of the story.

Just earlier this week, Activision gave fans a glimpse into the world of private military companies (or PMCs) via its “Vice For Hire” short documentary which you can watch down below. Talking with real-life industry experts, it teases just a bit about what heavy-handed political commentary there is to come.

With little in the way of gameplay, modes, or any specific details on the near-future battlefield to speak of just yet, we’ll just have to wait until Sunday to get a further handle on just what Advanced Warfare has in store for us. Tune into Activision’s live press conference at 12:00 p.m. Central Time (10:00 Pacific) for the full reveal.
