Call of Duty

  • What is the Future of Call of Duty?

    Call of Duty: Black OpsThe next game in the Call of Duty franchise is Advanced Warfare, a futuristic shooter in the hands of Sledgehammer games, a developer who, whilst not unfamiliar with the series, is certainly having their first shot at creating a solo Call of Duty experience.

    Advanced Warfare seems to offer a decent amount of content to make it feel fresh to COD players, but it's still going to feel like Call of Duty, which I think is what makes the franchise so popular in the first place.

    However, Advanced Warfare is only the beginning; EA still plan to churn out a new Call of Duty game every year for the foreseeable future, so what do the other Call of Duty developers have planned?

    Earlier this week, we mentioned a rumor suggesting World at War 2 may be the Call of Duty title for 2015, and that got me thinking.

    If Sledgehammer are in charge of Advanced Warfare, and Treyarch are reportedly working on a new world war two game, it would make sense that Infinity Ward are straight in the middle, working on their Modern Warfare series.

    If this is the case, then we'll have three completely separate Call of Duty experiences that could be very different from one another. Technically, we could have three separate COD franchises from the three developers, and if this is the case, I think this across-the-board approach to different settings and environments should keep all FPS players happy.

    For now though, this is just speculation. Whilst Advanced Warfare is well under development, there is no solid evidence for World at War 2, and absolutely no details have been given on Infinity Ward's next title.

    Where ever the Call of Duty franchise decides to go Evil Controllers will be here to create the best modded controllers possible. We will keep our controller software up-to-date with all the new technology and continue bringing the Master Mod. Check us out at: www.EvilControllers.com

  • GameStop COD Advanced Warfare Pre-orders Come With DLC for Previous COD Titles

    Advanced Warfare Preorder bonusesGameStop is hosting a brand new promotion that rewards gamers for pre-ordering the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare from their retail stores or their online website. If you choose to pre-order the new Call of Duty title through GameStop, you will be given a new personalization DLC pack that can be downloaded for both Black Ops 2 and Call of Duty Ghosts as soon as your pre-order goes through.

    The personalization pack offers a host of new Advanced Warfare themed cosmetic apparel, including a new weapon camo, a player patch, player card, a new reticle and a player background.

    None of this content provides any bonus to gameplay, and simply serves as an additional pack of personalization items, just as the name of the pack suggests. So far, it seems the only way to get ahold of this pack is by pre-ordering through GameStop.

    No other pre-order bonuses have been announced at this point, but it wouldn't be surprising if some kind of bonus for Advanced Warfare was announced at some point before it's release date.

    Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is the first COD title fully developed by Sledgehammer games, and it will be released in November this year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A separate development studio is working on a previous gen port for PS3 and Xbox 360. The new futuristic approach could help to refresh the series, but the same basic Call of Duty multiplayer experience is bound to make it into Advanced Warfare.

  • Screenshot Shown of Next Call of Duty Game

    Call of Duty 2014 ScreenshotBesides the diehard fans, there aren't that many of us out there that can still get excited at the announcement of a new Call of Duty game, however the next COD title planned for release this year may actually be worth checking out.

    The next COD title, or Call of Duty 2014 as it has been informally called, has been planned for release this Fall, however, despite only being a year after the release of Call of Duty Ghosts, the development team behind it have been quietly working on it for around 3 years now.

    Typically, the Call of Duty titles have been created by two different development studios; Infinity Ward and Treyarch Games. This gives each development studio two years to work on a title, and a Call of Duty game can still be released each year.

    This year round, Sledgehammer Games have gotten involved, and that means the COD franchise will be entering a three year development cycle for the first time.

    A new development team working on a COD title, along with an extra year's worth of development could just be enough to breathe new life into the franchise, and if it doesn't, then at least the game will look nice.

    The screenshot shown above was revealed late last week by Sledgehammer games to show off the graphical potential of Call of Duty 2014, which will primarily be targeted towards the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, giving Sledgehammer more space for improvement.

  • Massive COD Ghosts Ban wave Will Not Be Reversed

    cod ghosts banwave

    Dozens of players are reporting that they have just been banned from playing Call of Duty Ghosts in what looks to be the biggest ban wave the game has ever seen.

    When connecting to servers for the first time after loading the game, banned players will be notified that they have been permanently banned due to a violation in the security and enforcement policy.

    The ban wave seems to have mainly targeted both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 3, but the main reason for why players have been banned seems to be unclear. Whether or not it's related to cheating or using unfair exploits has not yet been revealed by Activision, but it seems some players are stating they have played legitimately and have been caught up in the whole commotion.

    Some players seem to believe that they have unknowingly entered a hacked lobby and then backed out to avoid getting caught up with cheaters. Unfortunately this is something that players cannot avoid, as they are directed to the lobbies via the in-game matchmaking mechanic. If this is true, Activision will most likely work on fixing those that have been banned unfairly. The trouble is, most real cheaters will probably not admit that they have cheated, and it may end up with thousands of players complaining about being banned, even if a large portion of banned players did deserve it.

    If you got banned unfairly, expect quite a long waiting time before you get unbanned, however some players are already getting unbanned at the time of writing.

  • New COD Ghosts Xbox One Update Affecting FPS Performance

    COD Ghosts Performance

    Usually, patches are made to fix things, but sometimes they end up creating more problems than there were in the first place. This seems to be the case with Call of Duty Ghosts on the Xbox One, which recently had an update pushed to the game that has caused some performance issues.

    Seeing as FPS and video quality was pretty much the big topic around the time of Call of Duty Ghost’s release, I could imagine that this will be quite a heavy blow for any Xbox fans out there, while PlayStation fans don't need to worry.

    I’m on neither side of the fence, and would happily enjoy playing on either console if there were games out there to make it worthwhile. However, this new patch has definitely not made playing COD Ghosts on the Xbox One worthwhile, and I feel bad for all of the people that have already paid full price for the Xbox One copy of the game, and maybe even more on top of that for DLC or season passes.

    So far, the frame rate on the Xbox One has been pretty smooth, but this new update that has been put in place to prepare the game for the upcoming Onslaught DLC has caused some issues, and you may now notice anywhere between a slight frame drop to a huge drop to half of the original frame rate in some areas.

    The frames seem to be most affected when you aim down sniper scopes or your iron sight, and drop down to an average of 30-35 FPS. This may not be a small enough frame rate for us to see the lagginess clearly, but whilst playing you’ll certainly notice the sudden drop in frames, and it’s really gonna mess up your games.

    No details have been given by Infinity Ward or Activision on whether these issues will be fixed anytime soon.

  • Two New Assassin's Creed Projects Launching in 2014?

    Well I don't think fans would really mind if Assassin's Creed took a year off. The fact that a lot of them were not happy with the idea of Assassin's Creed 4 coming out so quickly was subdued because the game was good, but fear is rising that this franchise is turning into Call of Duty.

    AssassinsCreedBut lo behold, recent rumors suggest that Ubisoft might not be just coming out with one, but two Assassin's Creed installments for 2014. One of the games are supposedly being developed just for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U while the other is being developed for the PS4 and Xbox One. In addition to that, the franchise is supposedly attempting a "massive re-scope" which could mean that they are going to change up how the entire story is going to head.

    Considering that the open world gameplay of AC4 which got most of the credit while the story sticking to the usual formula got most of the flak, it seems that Ubisoft might indeed be thinking that change is due. In the middle they even had a survey asking if players wanted an open world sailing and exploration game, without the need to connect Assassin's Creed core story.

    For now it seems that we might see some changes coming in the future, and this might be a way they hope to avoid the entire dilemma COD is facing right now. Other than that, it could just be that Ubisoft will be coming out with one game, but two different versions for current and next-gen consoles. Only time will tell what to really expect.

  • COD Ghosts Current Gen Version will have Limitations

    Despite many of the launch titles being available for both current generation and next generation consoles, it's looking like Infinity Ward and Activision are having to make some sacrifices to the current generation version of Call of Duty Ghosts to ensure things run smoothly.

    Thanks to a new leaked image of the back cover for the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty Ghosts, we now have found out that the online multiplayer will only feature up to 6 versus 6 combat, with the largest games only having a total of 12 players, instead of the standard 18 seen in previous COD games.

    On the next gen version and the PC version of Call of Duty Ghosts, the 18 player standard is present, so it looks as if sacrifices have had to be made. Although we haven't seen a PlayStation 3 copy of the game, it's likely that PS3 will only support up to 12 players online as well.

    The leaked image also gives us information on the mandatory download for COD Ghosts on the Xbox 360. Luckily, it will only take up 3GB of storage space, which means that even if you don't have a hard drive, you'll still be able to install the game onto your hard drive and play the full game once you've cleared a little space.

    It will be interesting to see what other sacrifices have had to be made to make sure Call of Duty Ghosts run smoothly on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Details are quite sparse at the moment, but I'm sure we'll notice a difference once the game releases.

  • Huge COD Ghosts Multiplayer Info Leak after Early Retail Units Sent Out

    When developing content that will be available to millions of people upon its release, it becomes very difficult to manage and stop content from leaking out before its planned release date.

    Activision and Infinity Ward have been pretty generous leading up to the Call of Duty Ghosts launch and have given us a lot of information on the upcoming game, however despite this, leaks and information on the game are spreading out all over the place, and the cause of this seems to be that some lucky people have been able to get hold of a copy COD Ghosts before its launch in November, and thanks to these people, we now have pretty much everything we could want to know about the multiplayer.

  • Different CoD: Ghosts Editions Announced

    If you're into collecting limited edition games at launch, you may be interested in the different COD Ghost game editions that will be available for purchase.

    Whilst these aren't 100% confirmed by anyone working on Call of Duty Ghosts, it is quite likely that these retailer descriptions are the real deal and we will be seeing these packs available soon across the globe.

    So far people will be able to buy the standard edition of the game, the prestige edition and the hardened edition.

    The standard edition simply includes the game, whilst the other two editions include both physical and digital content.

    The Hardened Edition includes:

    -Military style Paracord Strap
    -Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass
    -Extra multiplayer map: Freefall
    -Ghosts Badge Pack with extra accessories to use in-game
    -Call of Duty Digital: Ghosts digital soundtrack
    -Call of Duty: Ghosts Steelbook collectors edition case

    The Prestige Edition includes:

    -1080p HD camera (memory card, various fasteners and rechargeable)
    -Military style Strap Paracord
    -Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass
    -Extra multiplayer map: Freefall
    -Ghosts Badge Pack with extra accessories to use in-game
    -Call of Duty Digital: Ghosts digital soundtrack
    -Call of Duty: Ghosts Steelbook collectors edition case

    I'm not sure why the Prestige edition includes a HD camera and what exactly that has to do with COD ghosts, but over the Hardened edition, that really is the only difference between the two limited edition versions.
