Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare tells the tale of a powerful private military corporation running things 40 years in the future, and developer Sledgehammer Games released a video today in which it discussed the storytelling techniques it's using in the shooter.
As usual, Sledgehammer is employing the expertise of real-life military personnel like Delta Force operators as consultants, and according to studio creative director Bret Robbins, those individuals "bring a level of authenticity to a story. The studio also took input from futurists — "guys that, literally, their job is to think about the world in 40 years" — to help design the weapons, attire and world of the game. In addition, Sledgehammer is taking advantage of advanced performance capture technology to bring to life the voice and movements of actors such as Kevin Spacey, who stars as the main antagonist of Advanced Warfare.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is set for release Nov. 4 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. For more, check out our coverage from E3 2014.
