There’s going to be a new Call of Duty this year because of course there’s going to be one. Activision has been steadily whipping their studios to keep their mega millions franchise alive, so it’s just a matter of time before we hear about the next instalment. That seemingly came from Microsoft yesterday – before they pulled the old one eighty again.

While Call of Duty has always been popular, it didn’t quite hit the mainstream and go nuclear until Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Since then, it’s really only Treyarch’s games that have stuck to the series historical roots. World at War kicked off the Black Ops story arch and was set at the tail end of World War 2. Black Ops featured the Cold War, before its sequel jumped far in to the future. This year’s Call of Duty is being developed by Treyarch – and it could return to historical wars.

The sun continues to shine, water remains, for the most part, wet – and Call of Duty’s player-base continues to be milked supported by DLC. The next bit of extra, paid-for content coming to Sledgehammer’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Beyond a few new maps and a weapon, it’ll also add something Treyarch’s Call of Duty games have been known for: Zombies.

Another year, another Call Of Duty. But this year, something is different. New exo abilities. New weapons, near-future hardware and extra Kevin Spacey technology have all combined to make a Call Of Duty game that is new, yet familiar. And we get that. We get that you might need some help in going forward in a level and shooting people. After weeks of painstaking research and development, we’ve developed a guide that we feel will help you. Spoilers to follow, of course.

With a lot of the recent patches improving the online experience drastically, I'm really enjoying the hell out of this year's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. I'm also (surprisingly) not bad at it, and glancing over at our winners medals from the local launch lends a decent amount of reality to that dream. I am not, however, anywhere near as good as what I'd need to be for this kick-ass gear.

While folks still refuse to believe that I actually play Call Of Duty for the single-player and not the humiliating multiplayer wherein I have the motor reflex skills of a sloth that has eaten too many Jamaican brownies, they’re more than willing to accept that I also dig the extra modes offered in the game. Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 had the best Zombie mode in my humble opinion,with many an hour spent shooting and cursing at the screen. Advanced Warfare will also have such a mode present, when it lands in January.

Been playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare? I’m sure you’ve experienced some kind of lag at some point, but  thankfully it looks like it’s getting better. A whole other problem though are some of the exploits that exist. Gamers have taken to YouTube to showcase all manners of stuff that really don’t belong in the core game experience. They should be careful, as Activision are looking to ban any videos that they believe promotes these exploits or any kind of cheating.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is an incredibly fun new entry into the franchise, but it isn’t without problems. The game suffers from insufferable lag sometimes, and a lot of the maps have some ridiculously exploitable hacks that run all the competitive fun. At least one of those issues is being sorted out by a new patch, and it’s arguably the easier of the two.

We’ve been wanting to do a podcast for a while, and not just because every other local site around here happens to be doing one. The thing is, it’s a bit awkward for us, due to our gang being scattered around the country like the 12 talismans of the Chinese Zodiac from the Jackie Chan adventures. But we think we’ve found a solution, so sit back, and enjoy some mindless rambling from myself and the Mattstick about Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

The Do Gaming Championship is arguably the biggest event on the South African eSport calendar. In its wake, it’s not unusual to see teams reshuffle or get snapped up by larger MGOs. This is the case with F34R, a local Call of Duty: Ghosts team who won their respective DGC tournament. They have now joined Energy eSports, and mark the first entry into the console division for the MGO.
