What's New in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare?

Call of Duty is one of the longest-running first person shooting franchises on the market. With the release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, the series will hit its 11th primary installment, featuring a number of changes that alter the more traditional gameplay.

This should result in a more polished game that has more of the features Call of Duty fans want to see in future installments.

Sledgehammer Games is best known for the original Dead Space. While Dead Space is a third-person shooter instead of a first-person title like the Call of Duty games, the company was asked to help with the development of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 after half of Infinity Ward's staff left with co-founders Jason West and Vince Zampella. That exodus gave Sledgehammer nearly two years of first-person shooter experience. Following the release of Modern Warfare 3, Sledgehammer began work on Advanced Warfare.
