With the all-new exoskeleton, players can boost jump, dodge, dash, slide, slam and more as the action goes vertical, while using future-tech, cutting-edge capabilities and a brand-new weapon class as part of nearly 350 custom weapons. Offering a new reward system, including more than 1,000 in-game player rewards, and nearly limitless customization options that create more than 2 billion unique player combinations and more, the title offers the most in-depth, robust and advanced Call of Duty multiplayer experience ever on both next generation and current generation systems.
In addition to the multiplayer premiere, Activision today announced the Call
of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition, which offers fans
for the first time 24-hour early access to the game starting November 3rd.
The Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition is available
on all platforms to customers who pre-order the game* and pick up on day
zero - at no added cost. Collector's Edition copies of Call of
Duty: Advanced Warfare will also be available for Day Zero early

"With Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare we introduced the
first new lead developer to the franchise in a decade and our first
three-year development cycle, with one mission: bring breakthrough
innovation to the franchise, while also honoring its roots. We feel
Sledgehammer Games has risen to that challenge," said
Three years in the making, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare delivers a new level of tactical combat on all platforms, giving players all-new frenetic ways to move, starting with the power of the exoskeleton. The new gameplay abilities, movements, perks and mechanics expand the verticality of sightlines and maneuverability, increasing the amount of strategic options available to players, while staying true to Call of Duty's fast, fluid multiplayer experience. Players can combine these new mechanics for offensive, defensive and overall evasive maneuvers unlike anything ever seen in Call of Duty.
Also, the much loved Pick 10 create-a-class is back with even more customizable options than before with Pick 13. Gamers can now choose their favorite scorestreaks, which are fully customizable, and include them in their preferred class, raising the bar on personalization from top to bottom. The introduction of co-operative scorestreaks also allows friends to experience Call of Duty multiplayer together in a new way, as for the first time ever, two players can now join a scorestreak and work co-operatively.
The technology of the future in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare wouldn't
be complete without advancement in weapon technology, beginning with the
debut of a directed energy class of weapons. This all-new weapon class
for Call of Duty uses the power of focused energy to overcome
enemies and relies on tactical heat management instead of reloads.
Players can test out this new class, along with all their weapons, on
"When we set out to envision the 2054 world of Call of Duty, we
spent a lot of time focused on evolving the multiplayer - offering all
new experiences to the fans," said
"We can't wait for players to discover all of the new movement,
mechanics, equipment, and modes built into Call of Duty: Advanced
Warfare, as well as the depth of customization
layered in for the most personalized Call of Duty multiplayer
experience to date," added
Featuring 12 modes out of the box on day one, led by fan-favorites Capture
the Flag and Hardpoint, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's
multiplayer modes not only include classics such as Team Deathmatch,
Domination, and Search and Destroy, but also new
options for the playlist such as Uplink and
Sledgehammer Games is also taking personalization to the next level with Create-an-Operator, a new character system, which allows players to personalize their soldier however they want from heads, helmets, eyewear, shirts, vests, kits, gloves, pants, knee-guards, boots and even the exoskeleton itself. Create-an-Operator is bolstered by a brand new reward system called Supply Drops. The more someone plays, the more they earn. Supply Drops can contain anything from custom weapons to unique character gear in different classes of rarity, all giving players multiplayer bragging rights.
In addition to showing off their Supply Drops gear in-game, the
