Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare screenshot shows soldier exoskeleton

A brand new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare screenshot has been released, showcasing the soldiers’ exoskeleton.

Advanced Warfare developer Sledgehammer Games is celebrating its five-year anniversary and to celebrate it is offering some COD goodies for its fans.

Today’s present is a brand new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare screenshot, showing off the solider exoskeleton that aims to mix up the gameplay in the upcoming COD title.

“This screenshot highlights our game’s Exoskeleton, the game changing mechanic that allows the advanced solider to move faster, jump higher and fight harder,” explained Sledgehammer Games. “The exoskeleton is a core mechanic of our game and really ushers in a new era for the Call of Duty franchise.”

The Advanced Warfare exoskeleton is said to evolve every aspect of your soldier, but more important change the gameplay by introducing more verticality through the exoskeleton boosted jump, grappling and covert cloaking abilities.

The idea is to give your soldier a lot more freedom in the maps, potentially letting the game be a little more open world than previous Call of Duty titles.

“Harnessing the power of next-gen platforms, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare brings players into the battlegrounds of the future by boasting a new hi-tech, advanced arsenal and ability set, arming players with all-new equipment, technology, perks, and vehicles like hover bikes and highly specialized drones”.

The exoskeleton can be upgraded at the end of each mission too, so no doubt you’ll be able to customise it according to your play style.

Sledgehammer Games has set the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare release date for November 4 on the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
