Advanced Warfare Maps

Advanced Warfare Maps

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Maps Reveal

Advanced Warfare Maps


The other reveal today at Gamescom was the reveal of four of the maps included in Advanced Warfare Multiplayer edition. The maps are more advanced than ever before. From tsunami title waves to biohazard, the maps revealed today offer gamers some very interesting areas to game in. Complicated to say the least, the revealed four maps offer some very tough obstacles to overcome.

The latest revealed Advanced Warfare Maps for Call of Duty’s Advanced Warfare exclusively are:



Set in Monument Valley, this map will encompass the advancements of the jumper. Jumping is going to be a huge part of Call of Duty’s Advanced Warfare and this map will fulfill the thirst of boost jumping.



Riot offers the setting of a burned out prison set in Bagdad. Bombed out, this map will offer a similar situation that previous Call of Duty prison maps have offered.



Offers a space elevator terminal experiences to the gamer. Many expansions and crevices are offered for camping and sniping but many areas also encompass the run and gunner.



Set in San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge, this map offers more than just an ordinary map would offer. The biggest thing about this map is it offers its players a mid-game tsunami to flavor things up. The title wave encourages the boost jump feature this multiplayer game offers and if you know the San-Francisco area well, mainly the Golden Gate Bridge area, you will have an advantage when playing this map.

OK, this was a quick rundown of the reveal of Call of Duty’s Advanced Warfare Maps. There is much more to come and please come back to Gamer.Ninja to find out the latest with Call of Duty and Advanced Warfare Maps.

Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Reveal

Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Reveal


Today at Gamescom in Cologne Germany Activision and Sledgehammer Games offered an insider view of the Call of Duty series Advanced Warfare and its online multiplayer offerings. The main theme throughout the reveal was “You Play Your Way”. Customization is pinnacle within Advanced Warfare Multiplayer and customizing everything from your load-out to your player is going to be had.

The initial announcement was about the addition of the EXO Movements and Abilities. The addition of “EXO” is just this. EXO involves the exoskeleton of the player and encompasses such things as the Boost Jump, Boost Slide and Boost Slam. It will also involve three options of hover, cloak and shield and the addition of the threat grenade.

The next thing on the list was Supply Drops. XP will still exist but you will also get advantages of adding in character gear, reinforcements and weapon loot.

Weapon Loot:

Gamers will be able to modify their bare weapons beyond anything like in the past. There will be more available add-ons than in any other release of Call of Duty.

Character Gear:

AW will offer a new charter system overall. Customizing your player within Advanced Warfare Multiplayer will be more engaging than ever before. From weapons down to eye glasses, customization is going to be a huge part of your player and character.


Reinforcements with Advanced Warfare offers the gamer new perks and score streaks. This will help the new and noob player bigtime and offer beginners a better chance overall at winning matches.

The next big thing released was the advancement in Supply Drops. Basically this translates into the more you play, the more you receive. At this point Sledgehammer went into Pick 13 and it being way better than Pick 10 from Black Ops II. If you recall Pick 10, then you will understand Pick 13 and it being much better. It involves customizable score streaks, option add-ons and even the advent of a rocket controlled turret.

The next biggest announcement was the integration of Co-op Scorestreaks. Basically two players can collaborate and work together to earn Scorestreaks. Scorestreaks are very close to Killstreaks and all you have to do is just imagine working together on Killstreaks with another player. Basically you can work in collaboration with another player to ear Scorestreaks and dominate a match.

Virtual Firing Range:

Here at Gamer.Ninja, we believe the coolest reveal of Gamescom 2014 and Advanced Warfare Multiplayer will be the addition of the Virtual Shooting Range. If there is any major advancement within the Call of Duty Multiplayer series, this will be it. It stands out as one of those “Why Did They Not Think of This Before” ideas. You basically get to pre-try you load-out before you actually get into the multiplayer match. Once you select your best load-out, you are given the option of going into your own private shooting range to test out your load-out against real action targets. This is cool and an idea which makes perfect sense. You can try out your load-out prior to entering a match. This is huge. This is a major breakthrough. One breakthrough that will be sure to be a hit in Gamer.Ninja’s opinion.


Create-An-Operator offers fine tuning of a player down to the very smallest detail. Basically this allows the gamer to create his/hers won player down to the color of hair and stance. From the EXOskeletons to Boosts, you can create a player that is almost identical to your own self. It is almost scary how detailed your player can become.

Virtual Lobby:

The second most innovative design within Advanced Warfare would be the advent of the Virtual Lobby. Basically is makes the lobby time wait a little more interesting. As you wait to gain access to a match the Virtual Lobby will allow the gamer to virtually view their opponents. Up and down and side to side, you can view what you about to go up against. From armor to load-outs, you can view what you opponents are going to unleash on you even before entering the next match. This is not just going to be a release of gamer stats. This will be a release of everything including the underwear.

Advanced Warfare offers both a competitive and social feel within the gameplay. The additions of the above show us some major breakthroughs in what gamers are asking for.

The next release in the Gamer.Ninja offerings surrounding the Advanced Warfare multiplayer edition will be the secrete reveal and the maps revealed for Advanced Warfare and what they will be offering.

The latest from Sledgehammer Games and Call of Duty | Advanced Warfare



Sledgehammer will be releasing the latest edition of the Call of Duty series, Advanced Warfare, this fall on 11/4/14. This release is truly to become another epic series in the Call of Duty camp of games. What is next? What can be done? Is buying this game worth it?

Well as many would suspect and guess, it is worth it. We would like to say this will be the best but until play time has been had not much can be said other than watching the trailers such as the following:


The game setting is certainly different as to the previous tones of the Call of Duty releases but possibly a new arena of gaming avenues for COD is being set. Modern and past has been the focus for previous releases and now COD is going into the “what if” realm. What if terrorists attack and who, other than the United States Military, will be present and foremost to thwart the advances of these terrorists. The possible brilliance of this campaign will be set on a presence that many of the world’s nuclear plants are the sole target and a facetious organization/company is in place to defend where nations are unable. The main character of the campaign is non-other than House of Cards, a Netfix series, star/actor Kevin Spacey. Kevin plays the role of the overbearing head of an international private corporation named Atlas who is a governmental contracted military firm poised to offer direct action in the event of military need.

Hey, they needed something and maybe they found the correct thing to focus on?

The overall theme of Advanced Warfare will be:

With nations brought to their knees by a global terrorist attack, the world turns to Atlas, the largest private military company on the planet. Power, though, changes everything.

All we can do as gamers is what and see. As far as Advanced Warfare revolutionizing the gaming industry above just being a new release will remain to be seen. As of this point is just a new story line and certainly nothing like we got when Modern Warfare 2 was released. When MW2 was released it changed gaming and the gaming industry. All we as gamers can do is wait for the next best thing and maybe Advanced Warfare will it. Let’s hope for some awesome advancements and something which wants gamers to play and follow and believe.

The release date for Advance Warfare is November 14th, 2014.
