  • New Advanced Warfare DLC Available on Xbox One

    advanced warfare reckoning dlc

    The latest Advanced Warfare DLC pack is now available on the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. As part of the exclusivity deal with Microsoft, the latest DLC will not be available on other platforms until next month.

    The new DLC pack is called Reckoning and it features a variety of new content. Unfortunately Reckoning does not include a bonus weapon like previous DLC packs have, but it does include other exciting content.

    In total, there are four new multiplayer maps in the Reckoning DLC pack and a new exo-zombies map. The first map is called Fracture and it features an ice digging facility located near one of the poles. You'll find yourself on a sinking ice cap that slowly sinks throughout each match.

    Overload is the second map and this is located in the middle east. Players will find themselves fighting in a large, luxury hotel filled with all sorts of expensive items.

    Quarantine is the third map and this places players on a disease ridden island. The map is very close quarters. Finally, Swarm is the last multiplayer map and this features a Korean suburb.

    The new exo-zombie map is called Descent and this puts players on an island.

    The new Reckoning DLC is part of the season pass but if you'd like to pick up the DLC without owning the season pass you will have to cough up $14.99.

    Reckoning is the fourth and final DLC pack for Advanced Warfare. In the past, three other DLC packs have been released with extra maps, more exo-suit survival chapters and some extra weapons. Players can also pick up various cosmetic DLC packs but these are not available within the season pass.

  • Activision Says Call of Duty Remasters are Possible

    call of duty remaster

    Whether you are looking forward to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 or not, you can't deny that Activision has done a great job, alongside some of it's developers, to release a number of classic Call of Duty games in the past.

    Some players may have the fondest of memories in Black Ops 1, whilst others remember spending their days on Modern Warfare 2. Some veterans out there may even tell you that their fondest memories were from Call of Duty 4.

    Either way, there is a lot of nostalgia hiding in many of the older Call of Duty titles, and Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg understands that this is a great reason for remastered versions to be created.

    Hirshberg mentioned that, "If done well, remasters can be great."

    "You talk about nostalgia, and people have such connection to the games they love from the last cycle. They want to see what it would look like if someone did it right for this cycle."

    Hirshberg even went on to say that a remastered collection for Call of Duty could certainly be possible, but it mainly comes down to whether Activision can have the time spare to focus on such a thing, instead of working on newer titles.

    "We need everybody we can get to make the content we're already committed to for our new games. It's always a matter of finding great people to do that work. I would love to play Modern Warfare 1 or the original Black Ops. There's certainly a deep well there. No announcements, but it's something we talk about and think about a lot."

    So, yes - a Call of Duty remastered collection? Activision are definitely thinking about it.

  • More Black Ops 3 Details Explained

    black ops 3 details multiplayerTreyarch just keep spilling the beans on Black Ops 3, which is great because the game sounds like it’s going to be a lot different to previous games developed by them. Recently, Treyarch gave details on the Black Ops 3 Pick 10 system, ADS mechanics and more.

    In Black Ops 2, the Pick 10 system was hugely praised by the COD community. Thankfully the Pick 10 system will be returning to Black Ops 3. Everything is mostly the same with the Pick 10 system, but there have been a few changes made to the way it works.

    Firstly, the Wildcards will still be in Black Ops 3. Players can equip up to six different Wildcards but each Wildcard will take up a certain amount of points as per usual.

    Interestingly, the entire attachment system will be different in Black Ops 3. Weapon optics are now placed in their own separate slot. If you use the right Wildcards you can equip up to five attachments onto a primary weapon, as well as an optic. Secondary weapons can have up to two attachments and an optic.

    You can create your own weapons, attachments attached, in the new Gunsmith feature that will be added to Black Ops 3.

    ADS has also been improved in Black Ops 3 so that aiming down the sights of a sniper is a lot smoother. Apparently powerful snipers will be balanced slightly to adjust to these new changes.

  • Black Ops 3 DLC Packs and Season Pass Details Leaked

    black ops 3 dlc packsWhilst a lot of information about Black Ops 3 has been released officially, there is still a lot that Treyarch are waiting to reveal. Luckily, some details have already leaked, including details about the different DLC packs that will be in Black Ops 3.

    Black Ops 3 will have 4 different DLC packs, all of which will be part of the season pass. As usual, the season pass can be purchased up front and will cost considerably less than it would to purchase each of the DLC packs separately as they are released.

    Unfortunately we do not have details about what content will be in the Black Ops 3 DLC packs, although it could be possible that not even Treyarch are 100% sure at this point. Considering the full game hasn't even gone gold yet, it would make sense that DLC plans are not completely confirmed at this point.

    If previous Call of Duty games are anything to go by, we can expect new maps from the DLC packs, along with new weapons and maybe some extra gun camos. There may be more customization options bundled into the DLC packs. Advanced Warfare also introduced a part-by-part zombies campaign that was split up into each DLC pack, and this may be the same for Black Ops 3.

    Hopefully the standard zombies mode will be available alongside the base of the game, otherwise I think a lot of Call of Duty players will be very unhappy about Black Ops 3.

  • Black Ops 3 Will Have Titanfall Wall Running

    black ops 3 titanfallYou may have felt like Call of Duty Advanced Warfare took a few too many pages from Titanfall's book, but apparently Black Ops 3 is going to be taking some more pages. Treyarch has officially revealed some details about Black Ops 3, including information about a special wall running ability that will be in the game.

    Just like in Titanfall, to wall run in Call of Duty Black Ops 3 you will need to approach a wall at an angle to begin wall running. You will have an invisible "energy" meter, and once this runs out, you will come back off of the wall and land on the ground. Leaping between walls can increase your energy meter, so you could potentially keep wall running for a lengthy period of time.

    Treyarch have always been great at creating multiplayer maps, so let's hope they can create some maps that allow players to really make good use of the new wall running ability.

    Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will also have a new swimming mechanic. Players will now be able to cross through any areas of deep water. When swimming, a player will be able to keep their gun in their hands, allowing them to shoot whilst swimming.

    I think it would be interesting to see how Treyarch implement both the new swimming and wall running mechanics into the Black Ops 3 maps. Treyarch have the potential to turn both of these features into useful game additions, but without much effort they could just end up being not-so-useful gimmicks.

  • More Black Ops 3 Details Released, Including Supported Platforms

    black ops 3 detailsIf you didn't know already, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is coming this year, and it's looking it could completely change a lot about the previous games in the franchise.

    The latest trailer has released more details about Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, including a release date and the supported platforms that the game will run on. As you can expect, Black Ops 3 will only be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, so there will not be any support for the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3.

    Black Ops 3 will be releasing on November 6 worldwide, but players are given the chance to play it a little earlier. If you pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 you will be given access to a multiplayer beta.

    There will be a beta for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, so you'll be able to give the beta a try no matter what platform you play on. Unfortunately neither Treyarch or Activision has given a date on the multiplayer beta, but it can't be that far away considering that the full game will be released near the end of this year.

    In more news it has been revealed that the multiplayer in Black Ops 3 will be undergoing some interesting changes. Players will no longer be playing as a standard soldier. Instead they will be forced to choose between certain specialists, all of which have their own unique abilities or weapon loadouts.

  • Black Ops 3 Announced

    black ops 3Out of nowhere Treyarch has just announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be coming this year. The developer also released a small teaser trailer showing very little of anything besides the Black Ops logo.

    Fortunately the teaser trailer does give us more information about when we can expect to hear more about Black Ops 3. According to the new trailer, there will be a worldwide reveal on Sunday, April 26.

    So far, we haven’t seen any gameplay of Black Ops 3 and we don’t really know what to expect. The last title in the game was from Sledgehammer Games and this was the first time the development studio created a Call of Duty game without any external help. Some players seem quite excited to look forward to a new Black Ops title, whilst others are wishing Activision chose to go for a different Call of Duty era.

    Considering Treyarch is still going down the futuristic Black Ops arch, it could be possible that the upcoming Black Ops title will come with some of the game content we saw in Advanced Warfare. It would be interesting to see the exo-suit abilities in Black Ops 3, although we can neither confirm nor deny whether this will happen or not.

    Hopefully we will learn all about Black Ops 3 and what to expect from the game on April 26. The April reveal is a little earlier than usual so perhaps we’ll see Black Ops 3 release earlier than scheduled too.

  • Crazy Advanced Warfare Stats Revealed

    Sledgehammer Games has recently released a large infographic that contains a variety of information relating to player's accumalative stats in Advanced Warfare since the game has been released. In the infographic, details about player kills, weapon usage and grenade usage has been displayed. Other details give information about the exo zombie survival mode, whilst some stats share details on the various exo suit abilities.

    2,591,920,137, or roughly 2.5 billion exo zombies have been killed since the release of Advanced Warfare, and 223 million zombie waves have been cleared by players.

    Players have collected 1,397,836,776 supply drops, and over 2 billion items have been collected, with roughly 300 million of those being elite items.

    One of my favorite stats on the new info-graphic includes details about how far players have jumped with the new boost jumps in Advanced Warfare. Over 105 trillion jumps have been made by players online. Sledgehammer Games has stated that this is enough distance to cover the circumference of the earth 14 thousand times. Now that is a lot of boost jumping.

    Unfortunately the info-graphic did not give stats on player average kill ratios or any other information about player performance or weapon preference. The info-graphic did state that 24% of weapons used were assault rifles, 19% were SMGs, 16% were heavy weapons and just 13% were snipers.

    If you could learn any stats about Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, what kind of stats would you be interested to learn about? I personally think it would be great to see details about player performance and general weapon usage, instead of just weapon class usage.

  • Nadeshot Takes Break from Competitive Call of Duty

    nadeshot leaves call of dutyOne of the most well known competitive Call of Duty players is taking a break from the pro circuit, and he shall be stepping out of any competitive Advanced Warfare tournaments for the time being. Nadeshot, who has been on Optic gaming for a while now, has stated that his break is related to various personal choices in his life.

    Nadeshot is now a co-owner in Team Optic, and he believes that by stepping out of the pro circuit, he can focus on finding a more determined player to fill his spot. Nadeshot did mention that he would like to return to competitive Call of Duty, most likely after the next Call of Duty titles is released. However, for the time being, Nadeshot has revealed that he “Just needs some time to step back and pursue other things that he's passionate about."

    Nadeshot continued to talk about how his drive and passion just isn’t as strong as it needs to be. Even though Optic has won the past 3 out of 5 major tournaments, Nadeshot's mindset entering into these tournaments has been "to not lose" instead of "to win."

    It will be interesting to see if Optic can find a filler who is more passionate about the game than Nadeshot himself, and a lot of speculation has spread the internet around who a suitable replacement could be for Team Optic.

    We wish Nadeshot and Optic gaming the best of luck going forward. We’re interested to see how things evolve as Call of Duty Advanced Warfare nears it's end.

  • Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC Finally Arrives on Xbox

    advanced warfare havocThe first DLC pack for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has finally arrived on the Xbox, and it can now be picked up for both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 as part of an early access deal. The Havoc DLC will also be released for the PC and the PlayStation consoles at some point in February.

    The new Havoc DLC pack comes with a wide range of new content, including four brand new maps, and the anticipated exo zombies survival co-op mode.

    The four maps included in the Havoc DLC are Sideshow, Core, Urban and Drift. Sideshow is a shanty town built within a cargo ship. Core is within a large drilling station, and Drift is a small sized snow town. Finally, Urban is a packed city area.

    Before the Havoc DLC was officially released, two new weapons were also put out as part of the Havoc DLC pack. Season pass players were able to take hold of the weapons in the Havoc DLC earlier in the year. The weapons included a new laser AE4 Widowmaker rifle, and a direct variation of the same weapon.

    The most looked forward to feature in the Havoc DLC is the exo zombies co-op mode though, and similarly to Black Ops 2, the mode will have a set amount of missions players will be able to play through. It has been rumored that more exo zombies content will be released incrementally in each DLC after the Havoc DLC.
