Some pretty TItanfall-y stuff going on in there. I like it.

Edited by Adrian79

Just looks like CoD:Halo Warfare to me. Hoping Treyarch will bring it back to some sort of realism/less sci-fi next year.

I kind of feel bad for the guys at Respawn because everyone had these amazing hopes for the fathers of Call of Duty to come and revolutionize the FPS genre and here comes another Call of Duty and it looks to do everything Titanfall did but better and flashier.

I think it's pretty funny how we went from UT and Quake's arcade style to the "realistic" modern military shooter just to be seemingly evolving back into a continuation of the original arcadey FPSs. I'm all for it, I have no interest in any of the "realistic" shooters.

Huh. Looks more interesting than the previous few. The part with the menus cut to the music is so dumb. "Look at these menus!"

Edited by CorruptedEvil

This looks like fun. Sci fi is definitely the way to go.

My reaction exactly. This might be the first Call of Duty game since Modern Warfare 2 that I'll end up buying.

Damn. I actually liked this trailer...

Isn't this jumping to conclusions based on no playtime whether the jetpacks or movement (the two main similarities between both) will feel as good as Titanfall let alone "better"?

It's obviously a personal opinion but watching that trailer makes me want to play it whereas Titanfall always looked really bland to me.

Looks a heck of a lot better than Titanfall(though no mechs kind of stinks). Plus, it actually has a campaign.

Looks cool as hell to me, always liked CoD trailers.

Crossing my fingers for this game. I haven't played a CoD that I didn't like (also haven't played Ghosts) but the last few have definitely not held my interest like earlier entries. My hope is this one has enough o'that early CoD spunk to jumpstart my enthusiasm for the series all over again.

I really loved Modern Warfare/World At War/Modern Warfare 2.

Posted by mrcraggle

A lot of RIP CoD comments during the Twitch stream oddly enough considering Ghosts is the game I'm sure many would consider to be the lowest point for the franchise since 3. I actually think this looks like the best CoD in quite some time. While it's easy to draw parralels with Titanfall, It's not the only game to ever have jet packs and Titanfall wasn't exactly the massive, CoD killer we were all expecting either.

Posted by defordj

Looks less like Titanfall to me and more like the newest Killzone game. Weird.

Posted by MooseyMcMan

This seems pretty neat. I'm glad they're doing stuff to change up the formula. I probably won't play this game, though. Destiny's going to be my shooter for the shooting online.

As someone who bailed on CoD a while ago, this looks impressive. Don't know if I'll bite, but it seems like there's a lot of variety.

Edited by lowestformofwit

I personally think that all the Titanfall-esque copying here doesn't actually bring anything new to the game without having the actual Titans to balance it.

I mean, the point of the added agility of the pilots in Titanfall is to counter the Titans' unstoppable force. Having all this agility with no Titans just makes the whole thing look like a frantic mess to me.

I am not sure how the die-hards are going to take to this. I think it could go either way. It's not very Call Of Duty this year.

Posted by Splodge

This looks awesome.

Posted by ELpork

Despite the over wuby nature of the music, looks pretty insane.

Posted by Sydlanel

That jetpack kill in the end looks like straight from destiny... not that it's anything like that.
I'm ok with this, I dig the ridiculousness. It'll probably be fun, although I am pretty terrible at fps multiplayer.

I'd say they borrowed the Quake 3 move animations based on how much those guns were shaking during walking. Gun movement animations seem much more exaggerated than what you would see in a standard shooter today.

Posted by SomeJerk

I like what I see. I also know that it'll come with a single-player campaign. I already like it better than Titanfall. Hmpf.

Posted by avenlaya

I don't like CoD at all, but it does almost get me excited for it. However, the game play is still very much Call of Duty and I don't think the jetpacks and "advance" weapons will change anything on the game play point. But then again, it sells. So why not just stick to it.

Posted by Yummylee

Now this is a damn fine trailer. As someone who cares very little for Call of Duty, FPS multiplayer, and really military FPS games in general, they've done a good job in making this game look surprisingly appealing. The sillier sci-fi angle they've added definitely goes a long way in parsing it from its predecessors.

COD gets people excited because at its core its a ton of fun. However, I haven't found the last 3 or so games to be 60 bucks of fun. They're sticking to the formula and thats great for those where COD is their one game a year, but as someone who likes a variety of games, like many people on this site, there's no justification for buying it.

Posted by Reisz

So the best parts of the combat in Titanfall was the on foot stuff. This seems to be taking that approach to some degree with more variety, (I assume) better balance and added a splash of colour. This actually looks exciting, like something worth playing.

Cool.

Posted by VeRKK

I was quite impressed by it to be completely honest, and I have played and or tried all MP of all the COD games since COD 1. It looks like a good combination of Crysis 2 (cloak), Blacklight: Retribution\Halo (with the visor thing) and the movement from Titanfall, on paper, and from the gameplay stuff I saw on youtube, it looks quite good, but, if there will be no "demo" "Beta" "Alpha" for it (which, at this point, there should not be one), I will probably will not pick it up, despite looking impressive on the mechanics and features side (while the visual engine looks horrendous, just like last' years title).

Edited by GuncannonD

As one of the few commenters who has been playing CoD continuously since CoD4 (my clan was #1 in Clan Wars for a while in Ghosts), I'm cautiously optimistic. On the surface, it seems much better than Ghosts, which was at best a sideways step in the franchise (with minor changes, and suffering from being a "split-gen" game that didn't take full advantage of the XB1/PS4's power). The movement changes are substantial when compared to previous games, but I doubt it will be nowhere near Titanfall (which went too far in terms of mobility, IMO; I much preferred the slower, more tactical, mech combat).

Going back to Black Ops 2's create-a-class system, and many of the same attachments/perks is a welcome return, as that game was my favourite since MW2 (which is nostalgically good today, but has aged badly in some respects). Unlike Ghosts, they're keeping with tried-and-true gamemodes, with the only absence at the moment being Demolition, plus the requisite gimmicky new modes (the Oddball equivalent, which highlights the mobility mechanics) and a spiritual successor to War from World at War (which has been a common request in CoD forums). On the other hand, there are some major changes to how things like grenades and streaks work (with the latter being customizable for the first time). So it's not as if this is just "Black Ops 2: HD, with double jumps!".

The standard complaint about CoD is that every year is "just more of the same". However, many hardcore CoD players, like myself, see it as a reliable core game that is tweaked and added-upon every year (similar to Madden/FIFA/etc., but much more substantially). While people looking from the outside might think it's still too similar to previous games, believe me that every seemingly minor difference (like, say, having weapons come from loot drops or how perks are categorized) can have huge effects on core game, as well as the metagame (both in public and competitive environments). So, if Advanced Warfare is taking Black Ops 2 as a base, then adding new features and tweaking existing systems (as well as more polished graphics, scripting, netcode, etc.), it's pretty much what a lot of serious CoD players were looking for.

That said, I'll be curious to see where Treyarch goes in 2015. It would be weird to do Black Ops 3, as Advanced Warfare is basically already that in terms of everything but plot. I'd actually be fine with a return to World War 2; sure, WW2 games were a cliche, but we haven't seen things like the Normandy landings rendered on current-gen consoles yet.

Wow. Looks more interesting than the previous few at least! WP activision/sledgehammer.

Posted by GunsAreDrawn

Looks good. I've been very selective on which Call of Duty games i buy, I liked Cod 4, MW2 and Black Ops 2, but Black ops 1 was crap and I had no interest in buying MW3 nor Ghosts.

I liked Titanfall but I feel like it didn't give you much freedom to play the way you wanted and still be able to win the match and become MVP. You have no choice but to jump into a Titan, use the best weapons and take Minion Detector so you can rack up the most points possible during the round. The Titans kind of ruin the game for me in that respect.

Advanced Warfare looks good but it sucks that they had to resort to copying some Titanfall elements to make the game (even though it makes it more appealing.)

looks surprisingly cool!

Edited by masterpaperlink

the design of everything looks super cheesy, reminds me of unreal tournaments aesthetic (ugly)

Posted by straightLOLLING

Would play but the convoluted leveling and unlocking system they have in multiplayer is a deal breaker for me. Just gives me a headache.

Posted by PatODay

Oh doctor. This seems like the type of game that could pull me back into Call of Duty.

Posted by TurboMan

Wow.

Edited by d_jcs

I've never played CS, CoD or Halo and only dabbled a little in BF4 because it came free with my graphics card. The last shooter I really enjoyed (loved) was UT2k4. I had to watch this trailer twice because it was just that awesome. If the actual gameplay and especially the movement feels anything like this looked, I'll be all over this.

So true. When CoD and BF first came out, it was cool to make fun of the sci-fi shooters. Halo is the only one that didn't go realistic (Oh wait I guess BF did as well). Now CoD is going back after Titanfall came out? Did Titanfall actually sell well? Haven't heard much about it since the first week of release.

Posted by Astrophyle

We've seen this all before: UT Facing Worlds, low gravity. Move on...

Same thing, right?

:)

looks great

Edited by anbilow

I didn't really care for the future stuff in Black Ops 2. The pick 10 system was great, and it was a good entry after MW3 (which I think is my least favorite CoD MP) but it really could've embraced the future tech stuff more fully, or let it go completely. Mechanically, it was solid, but nothing too dramatic outside of the pick 10. Aesthetically, it was even less interesting than CoD games have been. It just didn't have it's own personality, very unlike MW, WaW, MW2, and BlOps. After finding myself uninterested from what I saw in Ghosts and decidedly turned off after its general reception, Advanced Warfare seems to be a good step forward.

Damn, that tsunami map was actually a little scary. I've never really played any CoD before, but this looks neat.

Uhm what?
This has no wallrunning, it looks really slow and clunky compared to Titanfall "on foot stuff", which plays extremely fluid and dynamic.

After having gotten back into Titanfall, this trailer did pretty much nothing for me, not a single thing okay i guess the player model customization looked kinda neat.

But besides that most stuff actually looked pretty bad: Movement looks slow and clunky, like the player being glued to the ground, the jump jets also look very clunky, at least compared to the fluid jetpack movement in Titanfall.

The action also feels extremely underwhelming, even for being a choreographed kill run where people just jump into the players crosshairs. I don't really know if i ever want to go back to playing a MP FPS game where no NPC's (or a large number of players) are involved, just way less fun with so little action going on.

Yes they throw some "Titfanfally" stuff in, like killstreak mechs, but that also feels like a step back compared to Titans in Titanfall, which essentially replace the whole "killstreak" bullshit with an actual meta game ontop the "on foot" gameplay.. Sorry, nope not going back to having only bullshit killstreaks, when i can customize my own damn mech and drop it on some fools head!

Guess Call of Duty is now finally dead for me, not that big of an surprise, considering that besides CoD4 only the Black Ops game got me interested enough to dip back into the franchise.

Posted by Pr1mus

This could have used more Inception horn.

Otherwise this looks great. Better than the last couple games for sure and different enough to be interesting.

That end screen makes me think Jeff "stole" this trailer from YouTube.

"set this year's Call of Duty apart from the previous entries."

What does?
