Activision chief executive Eric Hirshberg has explained during a conference call what will make this year’s Call of Duty stand out from previous iterations. Hirshberg explained that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the first in the series to benefit from a three-year development cycle. This has enabled the team to do more “do more experimentation, iteration, and creative thinking.”
Hirshberg explained that the team have altered gameplay elements with the inclusion of exoskeleton armour, which will enable the player to have more strength and also use the Titanfall inspired rocket boost. He concluded by saying that the developers have put more emphasis on story and character. The inclusion of actor Kevin Spacey reinforces this and Hisberg says that his part in the franchise is “soon to be iconic.”

The details are below.
- The official name of the game is Call of Duty: Patriots.
- The project name is ‘BlackSmith’ – Smith Black being ONE of the main characters in the game.
- The game is being developed by Sledgehammer – Who intend to do a 3-part series.
- The setting is going back to the roots of CoD and will be set in a fictional version of The Great War (World War I).

- There will be a multiplayer mode in the game as well as a single player mode. The single player mode can be done via Co-Op. However, this can only be done online. There is no Split Screen.
- The main campaign is expected to last just 6 hours. However, there will be TWO Sub-Campaigns. We aren’t sure what exactly this means.
- The game will only be developed for PC, PS4 and Xbox One – There is no chance of a WiiU or last-gen version.
- The release data is currently scheduled for November 14th 2014.
