Call of Duty fans everywhere have begun to rejoice as it was just announced by Sledgehammer Games that they would be including the traditional Call of Duty Playlists that everyone has grown to love throughout the years. Playlists such as Free for All, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Free For All will be returning to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Many fans of the series worried that Advanced Warfare would be completely distinguishing itself from other installments in the Call of Duty series by offering brand new playlists never before seen in a Call of Duty. This speculation came after all multiplayer footage for Advanced Warfare were new playlists. The new visuals, new developer, new gameplay elements and more only helped to fuel this speculation. None the less old school call of duty fans will still be able to experience the same playlists that they’ve known since Call of Duty 3.
Sledgehammer Games is the latest developer to be given full rights to develop a new installment in a Call of Duty franchise. Sledgehammer Games will develop a new Call of Duty that will be released in three year intervals, the first being Advanced Warfare which is a three party trilogy that will take course over the entire console lifespan of the Xbox One and Playstation 4. You can currently pre order Call of Duty Advanced Warfare which will allow for you to get special exclusive bonus content that won’t be included with the regular editions.
Destiny is the brand new shooter being released by Bungie, the original creators of the Halo Trilogy. Destiny is considered to be one of the most hyped up games of 2014 and it’s expected to receive a couple “Game of the Year” awards. Set across our expansive universe you can play as a variety of different classes, giving you an MMO experience while still having that classic Halo feeling at the same time.
Unfortunately fans of this game which will be released on September 9th won’t be able to experience cross generation gameplay. Cross generation gameplay is when multiplayer crosses over from the Xbox 360 to Xbox One or the Playstation 3 to Playstation 4. Bungie has openly said that the reason for this is because they don’t want to put players on the last generation consoles at a disadvantage compared to the next generation players. The fact of the matter is that the visuals for the next gen version of Destiny are slightly better than the last generation visuals of Destiny. This will result in next gen players being able to see last gen players easier and thus by it would allow for them to kill last generation players easier.
A Bungie Engineer by the name of Roger Wolfson said, “Regardless of where the reality is, there’s definitely a perception among gamers that better hardware means you have an advantage. We don’t want to have to enter that fray, so to create the best, most level playing field, both actually and perceptually, we separated it by platform.”
