Using the power of the exoskeleton we easily navigated around the wrecked cars and buses to reach a better vantage point and take out the enemy forces. Once again we saw the use of the “threat” grenade which highlights the enemies in red, even if they’re behind cover. This seems particularly useful for flanking.
As the mission progressed we finally reached the target vehicle, a van, which, as we went to open it, a whole horde of drones burst out. These drones then latched themselves onto the bridge supports and detonated, resulting in the middle of the bridge collapsing sending enemy troops and friendlies to their death.
The demo started off with a car chase heading towards the famous landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge, where our vehicle became ruined and unusable. We then proceeded on foot towards the target car, which had been flipped in the middle of the bridge, but encountered many enemies. Aside from the exhilarating Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare demo showing troops fighting through Los Angeles, I was able to see a behind closed doors demo of another section, based in San Francisco.
This was as much as we got to see but it’s shaping up to be a great game. At first glance it seems like a completely different Call of Duty, with new weapons, equipment and technology. The campaign will undoubtedly be spectacular and even more so on next-gen. I for one am very excited for this new instalment and will be keeping a keen eye on the game’s progress.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare releases on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC on November 4th 2014.
