The lights are on
Bringing in actor Kevin Spacey was only the first step in elevating Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s narrative ambitions, it seems. Today, Sledgehammer Games released a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the game’s story, exploring both the setting and the main character.
Creative director Bret Robbins discusses the research performed to make a believable futuristic setting, as well as the motion capture involved in creating realistic performances for characters like protagonist Private Mitchell.
Advanced Warfare releases November 4 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. For more, check out our cover story hub and our preview from E3.

I wish them luck. One thing for sure is that Sledgehammer is working very hard to make this a great/memorable call of duty.
I still can't tell if Kevin Spacey's character is the villain or if he is a morally grey character who our player works for.
Sooo...it's gonna have story this time? Cutscenes aren't going to just be used to show off the level of detail that went into a character that we can't ever see while playing as them or just to make the single player seem longer? Well okay then.
I can honestly say that I haven't been as excited for a COD game since Modern Warfare. Shouldn't this series be losing steam by now? As somebody who hasn't played a COD game since MW3, it's shocking to me that this franchise is still going strong.
Is that Denis Leary at 1:08?! Him and Kevin Spacey may blow my mind.
I'm liking this one. Haven't played a CoD game since Black Ops.
Oh, it's another Call of Duty...just in the future. Some madman is gonna want to destroy or take over the world or...well, kill a lot of people. We're gonna shoot plenty of people in the face as we move between cutscene after cutscene and set-piece after set-piece. Then it will end, and we'll play online for hundreds of hours. Oh, and the cutscenes will be pretty.
Just like all of the rest.
I'm not convinced. COD Ghosts spoiled any chance of getting excited on any future COD and so far nothing I have seen of COD AW is inviting enough to convince me to pre-order. My hopes are to have access to a friends console with COD AW installed and give it a try before deciding to make an expensive purchase. I don't feel like throwing my money away yet again. Seems I may be done with COD but will have to wait and see.
I'm thinking this will be the best cod since mw2
Who on earth keeps buying these games. I guess people like these cookie cutter games.
The only thing that has me remotely interested in this title is Sledgehammer's supposed interest in narrative.
I am on board if the story is good. Or else piss off, I don't care for their passionate ramblings, I have seen them be passionate about opening a door before so...
Modern Warfare 3 had a story o.o
Seriously though this call of duty has me really excited. I hated every entry after the first black ops so that says a lot.
