good lord troy baker is getting his

Posted by Village_Guy

Say what you will about Call of Duty, but those faces look pretty nice.

Besides this looks pretty good actually, though another PMCs are evil tale, really?

I'm actually pretty interested in picking this up.

Eh, PMC's are a great storytelling tool for military/espionage stories. If you're going to have dudes that are well trained, and in large numbers, they make for a great army-of-your-enemy tool.

It's one of those modern aspects that military/espionage stories do have to touch on at some point nowadays. I think pretty soon, drones are going to be one of those things that have to be shown or pointed out in modern military/espionage stories too.

I haven't bought a Call of Duty game in a while, but this one is starting to look convincing.

Troy Baker, I like you, but stop being in everything.

Looks very well made.

Looks good, really hope that story pans out.

The natural progression of Frank Underwood's character.

This looks like a fun story. I'm actually interested in a CoD title... AHH!

Posted by Newjack

...so the twist is going to be that Atlas blew up the reactors right?

Posted by AcidBrandon18

Who wants to start taking bets that Atlas is the real bad guy and that they planned those Terrorist attacks so that they could be employed?

Hey guys remember House of Cards? We got that. Remember those cool jet packs from Titanfall? We got that.

But in the first trailer he seemed like a decent dude that wanted peace.

Already getting those CoD twists!!

Posted by ObsideonDarman

I am super pumped to see how this game turns out.

Posted by tp0p

still don't see the appeal in releasing one of these every year.

Buying it because Kevin Spacey is in it

Posted by AV_Gamer

I hope this game is the next step for the COD series like COD 4 was. After the disappointment of Watch Dogs, I'll just have to wait and see.

I read on the Internet that House of Cards was carefully formulated by Netflix based on their user data, i.e. people like Kevin Spacey and people like political dramas.

Naturally it's just being extended to video games. Take House of Cards, mix in a few guns and jetpacks, and baby, you've got a CoD going.

Definitely a better bad guy than "we made up a completely bullshit World War 3 scenario involving communists/ethnic people" that the previous Modern Warfare series depended on.

PMCs are are natural "bad guy" stock because they're amoral, shady companies most the mindset of most civilised people. They operate with zero transparency and little to no oversight; they hire operators with questionable backgrounds, and they are at their most basic level war profiteers.

Good point, I liked Makarov as a villain, but other than that... ehhh, not great in Modern Warfare.

And you are pretty much on point about PMCs, so if we get some good Kevin Spacey being all "I got the power so fuck your politics!" I can get on board with that.

KEVIN SPACEY HYPE

This. Is there any other way, seriously, ANY OTHER WAY, this game's plot could develop?

Posted by DutchElvis92

I don't think there's ever been a realistic depiction of PMCs in games (or TV or film, really.)

I'm actually looking forward to this.

Edited by AlexanderSheen

@chaser324: Wouldn't it be awesome if this game had characters similar to the bosses from Revengeance?

Posted by GunstarRed

Troy Baker face!

Posted by civid

GET BENT Kevin Spacey!

Posted by Stonyman65

I've got to admit that when I saw the first trailer I kind of rolled my eyes a bit like "oh, this again.. Great..." but honestly this new trailer has me intrigued. If they do it right, this game could be really awesome. Also, I haven't seriously played a Call of Duty game since Black Ops, so I'm kind of interested in what they have in store gameplay-wise. I hope it's different enough to be interesting, but at the same time keep that Call of Duty feel.

Posted by Spitznock

I'm looking forward to being disappointed by this game's multiplayer. I'm sure the campaign will be okay in a "follow me around until you need to shoot through a huge wave of dumb AI" sort of way though.

Posted by Czarpyotr

Looks cool, actually might play this multiplayer again.

Expectations of the CoD campaign:

A.I. Fellow Warrior: "Hey, shoot here, here" ... "Hey, shoot here, here" ... "Hey, shoot here, here" ... "Hey, shoot here, here" ... "Hey, shoot here, here"

Player: *shoots*

A.I. Fellow Warrior: "Well done, now let me block your pathway to give you some exposition"

So you're saying your fellow soldiers are Navi from "Ocarina of Time"?

That would be AMAZING. :D

Posted by DaddyCabinet

@newjack: Probably, a better twist would be that the PMC isn't actually evil. Just that the CEO is a bit of a douchebag but then this game wouldn't have a heel.

Say what you will but the tech in this game looks cool as hell.

What is the world coming to i'm actually looking forward to a call of duty game!?

that and i love anything pmc related thanks to MGS

PMCs are no more or less evil than any other military organization, government or not.

Posted by gektech

hmm is the atlas name a dig at respawn .

I don't know, man. Blackwater firing into a crowd in Baghdad and killing 20 civilians is pretty messed up. Not saying actual military haven't done terrible things but they're typically thought to be kept more in check.

Posted by Giantstalker

Game looks good, but... I find it's funny how PMCs are "evil" and now the go-to villain for so many franchises these days. In the vast majority of these companies 95% of these guys just stand around guarding shit, the other 5% drive them there and back.

Within national militaries, because they're held "accountable," there's a much bigger incentive to hide or cover up anything incriminating if possible. If they can't, then they can spin doctor it so that something or someone else gets blamed.

But whatever, Cold War's over and Russia's on our side now right guys?

Posted by Mister_Snig

Looks like all that sex paid off.

Edited by IcyEyes

If only real people were as honest as fake villains, but less cringe worthy.

Imagine how horrible it would be if an organization was put in charge of your entire way of life, forcing you to use their services... Wait a sec. Isn't that what a government is?!

Posted by blake_brown

This actually looks awesome.

Of course, every CoD will look awesome compared to the turd sandwich that was CoD: Ghosts

Posted by mrfizzy

I'm not a massive fan of COD but damn if this doesn't look pretty.

Posted by face15

I'm glad to see that Virtua Spacey still looks janky as fuck.

I haven't played a Call of Duty game since Black Ops 1, but this is looking really interesting. I might end up playing this one.
