Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer World Premiere from gamescom

It’s officially August, and that means it’s nearly time for gamescom, the world’s busiest gaming convention. This year, we’re kickstarting our week in Cologne, Germany, with a live special you can enjoy at home.

Join me, Xbox Live’s Aceybongos, and the creators of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for the world broadcast premiere of the next generation of Call of Duty multiplayer during a special live event streamed on Xbox Live.

Tune in on August 11th 19:00 CET (1pm Eastern, 10am Pacific) to see Sledgehammer Games present the exclusive live reveal of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer, featuring exclusive interviews and the world premiere of the new multiplayer trailer.

Here’s a taste:

We have plenty more planned for gamescom 2014, and we can’t wait to share more with you soon.

    Tune in

    • The Gaming Alcoholic

      Upvoting yourself or pretending to be Major Nelson.

      I don’t know which one is more laughable.

      • Major Nelson (moderator)

        how about both

    • ElektroDragon

      I hope Larry sues you for impersonation.

      • yassine db

        i’m very sure the account has been reported to Disqus already.

  • J.Rhy@n

    Looking forward to it!

  • The Gaming Alcoholic

    The drooling masses can’t wait. I’m happy to have since removed myself from them in a post-Ghosts world.

  • Mando44646

    hey, why dont you talk about CoD even more! Because people totally want to constantly hear about that crappy overused franchise

    • Does Not Equal

      As much as people want to read complaints about it.

      • Ross Kemp

        That’s fascinating .

    • Mark Merriman

      As much as we want to see another pokemon game too.

  • Xenmic

    Look forward to getting this on the 360

  • baconcheeswhiz89

    but ive seen the trailer 7 different times, what could be different than the others?!?!?!?

  • plnkfloydian

    What exactly about it is advanced please do explain

    • Professor Oak

      Exo Suits and lazer guns Apparently. (My Brother is a CoD Fanboy).

      • Mark Merriman

        That it has had an actual production cycle.

  • Vince

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2 launches on November 2017.

  • Jason Lennerth

    Please Larry, tell MS that we xbox one players want a wireless headset similar to the 360 wireless headset- made by Microsoft, not Turtle Beach. I have a surround sound system, like many xbox one owners, and do not wish to give up true surround sound for ” cheap parlor trick” surround sound but I also don’t want to get my arms tangled in the wires of the current default xbox one headset that came w/the system. Everyone wins. MS makes more money and millions of us players can cut the cords that bind us to the wireless controller

  • ilovegoogleglass

    Will Justine Ezarik be there?

  • Praytoseedeath

    Much gun. Very used. So duty.

  • Digiadam

    Fix the video link.



    And if we should die tonight
    Then we should all die together
    Raise a glass of wine for the last time

    Calling out father oh
    Prepare as we will
    Watch the flames burn auburn on
    The mountain side
    Desolation comes upon the sky

    • plnkfloydian

      whispering eye*

  • CXK

    After feeling really burned by Ghosts, this will have to prove itself before I buy it. I purchased Ghosts digitally on 360 without even playing it since I liked the others. I then upgraded to the Xbox One version for another $10 and really regret it. The MP was so bad. You die quickly in COD MP but Ghosts had me dropping dead for what seemed like no reason all the time. I never got the hang of it, many of my friends sold it but I was stuck with that $70 digital copy lol.

    • plnkfloydian

      Sounds like what happento me playing the battlefield 4 beta. By the time i spawnd i lived max 5 seconds before being sniped

  • deadbox102

    Request: Please make all content included in a season pass to auto-download.

    • Digiadam

      We’ll….that depends. Not everyone has the net speed or bandwidth to do so.

      • deadbox102

        Then make it optional.

        • Digiadam


  • Brian Bradford

    Well now that they have shown the multiplayer next they will announce all the micro transactions they will have for the games launch. “get your justin beiber voice over for only $15.99!!” *cod fan kids” OMG I WANT!!!

  • Niknod

    So this post is just a teaser for the upcoming teaser. Nice.

  • Thinkaboutit

    Lets just admit it will be the same as all other CODs. I wont be fooled again.

  • digitallife

    Incoming titan…oh wait. Wrong game. After Ghosts they needed a huge step up, don’t think this will be it. Go back to your origins what made the game great, placating noobs isn’t the way to go. CoD 15 “Auto aim, auto lock, and auto fire…all you have to do is hold the controller…”

    • Brian Bradford

      You can only get that feature as a DLC micro transaction $2.99 for 3 games

      • Kevin Fell

        Gold members will be able to buy this DLC at a small but generous 5% discount. It’ll be on sale every other week in the new and improved Deals With Gold.

  • roozbeh, again

    Please don’t waste valuable time at gamescom with this. I would rather see more of the exclusives.

    • evilfangs .

      This will be shown at a separate Microsoft event like usual wouldn’t it? With the so good pro players showing us what’s what.

    • Mark

      Oh so because you don’t like it they shouldn’t show it? Also if you read it this is a separate event the day before microsofts conference

  • Mc Knights

    Sorry for off topic: Does anybody know if Minecraft will be released tomorrow? On an official Microsoft page was the August 4th named but now there is no release date left. And sorry for my English -.-

    • evilfangs .
      • Mc Knights

        Thank you for your answers. I thought the delay was just for PS Vita. So I hope I’ll be able to download Minecraft tomorrow for Xbox One.
        If not, I hope it will be still August and not september -.-

    • ImTheMetalLord

      And if you are not sure how to use the link evilfangs provided below then the answer is it appears that there is a delay but no new date or official word has been set/said.

    • Eren

      You should get PS rather than this piece of craft console!

      • Major Imposter

        Eren, why u here then? u should be with ur troll friends over at PS

      • deadbox102

        When you throw insults at one console in an effort to convince people to choose your preferred platform, well, it makes it you look pathetic.

        • Nick Peck


      • Nick Peck

        So why are you even commenting here then? idiot.

      • Gazmaster3D

        “piece of craft” If you are going to turn this into a juvenile playground spat at least get your spelling right but considering this is a one comment account you probably posted and ran for the hills.

      • ltsJoeMama

        So why are you here? Get lost.

      • Brad

        People are getting ps4’s by an overwhelming margin… you don’t have to rub it in.

    • Nick Peck

      No clue bud, the mystery around the next gen version of Minecraft has been very strange imo. I honestly don’t get what the issue has been with this game. It’s been pushed back a few times and there has been no advertising or talk about it, at all.

      We are at their mercy with this one it seems.

      • Brad

        I’ll bet real money the delays stem from allowing xbox 360 and ps3 saves on the next gen consoles new larger worlds.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    i will play this but really the only original game coming out is No Man’s Sky. now that will be an epic game.

    • ImTheMetalLord


      • evilfangs .

        Left 4 dead in a new skin and new features. Hardly original.

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Sorry I didn’t know you could play as the monster in Left 4 Dead…oh wait.. you can’t.

          • Disturbed_Court_Jester

            Actually you can in multiplayer.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Stand corrected then. Guess since I never played L4D games I didn’t know that. So maybe it isn’t anything new then.

          • Brian Bradford

            you play as the special infected, from from a huge evolving monster

  • Nick Peck

    I might get this game down the road at some point but honestly it’s all about Destiny right now for me :p Not to mention all of the other big games coming out that I’d rather play.

    But I’ll admit, the E3 gameplay looked really good and finally a big step up (in looks and animation) from the past games. But I’ll hold out until I see it playing before making any decisions.

  • GodRealm

    Omg yes. They have heard my cries. Resident Evil sale tomorrow!!!

    • ImTheMetalLord

      A little bit of this and a little bit of that for sale and the gold exclusive stuff is chit. Glad someone is happy with some of what’s on sale. I might pick up Bionic Commando Rearmed. I can hear the complaints already.

      • GodRealm

        This weeks sale is nice. Nothing to complain about really. Pick up Resident evil 5 and 4! Awesome games

        • ImTheMetalLord

          I haven’t played an RE game since the N64 days. Just not my type of genre. Didn’t realize it was a Capcom sale but that make sense how it’s all over the place in type of games. Just nothing for me in there. DR is not my thing either and fighting games the last one I really enjoyed was DOA on the Original Xbox.

  • Professor Oak

    Capcom Sale! Finally!

    • GodRealm

      LMFAO. U remember how 2 weeks ago i asked for a resident evil sale?

      • Professor Oak

        I guess they are listening

  • TheSchwartz

    Xbox One Deals with Gold:

    Angry Birds Star Wars- $25.00

    What a pathetic insult! Not even MetalLord can defend this weekly deal.

    • Kevin Fell

      Don’t forget Cod. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to snap it up cheap!!

      • Praytoseedeath

        Can’t tell if you’re joking because that’s been one of the most common sales on xbox one or serious because COD games never actually go down in standard price… :/

        • Kevin Fell

          It’s sarcasm. Cod is on sale every other week.

      • llortretsam

        lol I thought you was joking, but it’s literally on sale again this week.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      That’s interesting.


  • Ross Kemp

    Best news of the day – Resident Evil 1, being re made in 1080p with 16.9 ratio , surround sound and alternate control layouts if desired .

    • Kevin Fell

      That’s good news :-)

    • JackPackage

      That’s great.

    • evilfangs .

      So PC only? OOOOoooo burned.

      • Ross Kemp

        Oooooohhhh Xbox 1 , 360 and PS3/PS4…..derp .
        Back to your mom’s basement .

        • evilfangs .

          That’s fascinating.

    • Jose Ponce

      Xbox one And Xbox 360 too.

  • JackPackage

    The only way I will ever be interested in Call of Duty again, is if Treyarch go back to World War II and get back to basics.

    Or if they make a Call of Duty Collection, similar to The Master Chief Collection and just pretend MW 3 and Ghosts never existed.

    • noahgoa

      It seems as if you really don’t like CoD. If what you’re saying is true, the fact that AW is introducing new things should interest you.
