Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, the upcoming FPS title from Sledgehammer Games has a 3D mini map and the game will be rolling out with 13 multi-player maps in the game when it will be shipped out. Activision, a publisher, has also revealed a new video showcasing the 'Traffic' mission gameplay.
3D Mini Map
A new mini map was revealed by YouTuber, Ali-A. The map, Retreat is seen getting some sort of upgraded with colours and details.
This is the first playable 3D mini map that has been revealed in the franchise. Though in Call of Duty Black Ops, players had a look; in one of the trailers for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 the mini map cropped up but it was not present in the game.
With the addition of colours a contrast from the earlier black and white type gives players clarity and better understanding.
'Traffic' Mission Gameplay Video
A new gameplay video for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has been released by Sledgehammer Games. This is a new 'Traffic' mission for single player mode in the game.
The three-minute video shows how the protagonist, Jack Mitchell chases the KVA, a terrorist organisation in order to rescue one of his teammates who has been kidnapped by the terrorists.
IGN talks to Glen Schofield, co-studio head at Sledgehammer who explains about the high-powered chase where players will be able to jump on the roofs of the buses making good of the features like exoskeletons, boost jump and wall-climbing gloves. He said the company had been working on this for over a year and half.
The scene is set in the city of Lagos, Nigeria, which is famous for its buses and traffic. Players have to follow their kidnapped colleague but take down the terrorist vehicles that are part of the entourage.
