Ardent FPS fans have been calling for a multiplayer revolution in the Call of Duty franchise, and they just might get it.
During a recent Metro interview with Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey, we learn that the upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare might be just what the doctor ordered.
Condrey said the multiplayer mode is a "big step forward" for the record-breaking franchise and while he didn't provide details, he did hint at the possible inclusion of the exosuit and other futuristic gadgetry. Said Condrey:
"Our multiplayer has what I'm going to call the biggest set of new, as you call it, cool gear that you've seen in a long time. It's a big step forward. From three years in development we've been able to innovate across the game. Everything you saw [in the game's E3 demo]… just imagine what that’s going to mean for multiplayer."
We've seen the exosuit on brief display during some single-player footage, and now it seems that futuristic sci-fi goodness will find its way into the multiplayer. And if it's true that the exosuit will have a hefty presence when playing against others, than we'd have to agree that Advanced Warfare online has the potential to be significantly fresh.
