Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is a first-person shooter video game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. It is the eleventh primary installment in the Call of Duty series and the first developed primarily by Sledgehammer Games. It replaces Call of Duty: Ghosts as the competitive Call of Duty game for the 2014-2015 Call of Duty esports season, and is succeeded by Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on November 4, 2014.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare does not use a traditional heads-up display; instead, all information is relayed to the player via holographic projections from the weapon equipped. The general gun-play remains unchanged, apart from new mechanics; for example, certain guns will be able to recharge slowly. The player can also switch between different types of grenades. The game will also be the first in the Call of Duty series that will allow the player to choose differing types of conventional weaponry; for example, the game will feature regular conventional firearms, but the player can also choose to use Laser or Energy directed weaponry, both of which have differing attributes. Customization will also return from the 2013 title Call of Duty: Ghosts.
The Call of Duty Championship (or CoD Champs for short) is Activision's annual $1 million cash prize tournament for the competitive scene, the largest tournament in CoD esports, where the best Call of Duty players from around the world converge and compete against each other. The 2015 edition saw Denial eSports crowned the champions, with a roster of JKap, Clayster, Replays and Attach.
