Sledgehammer Games hits the mark with ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’

Sledgehammer Games’ first shot at solo developing a killer first-person shooter experience in a beloved series hit a bull’s-eye with the E3 2014 demo of “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.”

Xbox Wire takes readers into the behind-closed-doors demo, beginning with “Collapse,” a level set in San Francisco. “Mitchell, the player’s character, is driving a vehicle toward the Golden Gate Bridge, in pursuit of the enemy. He’s firing a sort of energy weapon, one of the many new weapons made possible by the game’s futuristic setting of 2054. Upon arriving at the bridge, Mitchell and his comrades are immediately set upon by heavily armed assailants. These new enemies are packing jump-jets which allow them to leap supernaturally high, getting on top of cars, buses, and other vantage points to rain lead down on the player. Mitchell and his team, however, also have this ability.”

Head over to Xbox Wire to get all the details on “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,” including a stealth mission, sound design and its availability in November for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
