Producer Mike Mejia was interviewed where he confirmed that “we’re 60 frames-per-second all the way.”

Read up on that and on the shooter's resolution here.

Same as every year, Activision is throwing big chunks of money to promote Call of Duty games -- and it's no different with Advanced Warfare.

Watch the trailer right now and it's not half bad, in case you're wondering.

The spot is directed by Hollywood helmer Peter Berg (Lone Survivor, Battleship), the trailer stars Taylor Kitsch (John Carter, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Emily Ratajkowski (Blurred Lines girl, Gone Girl) and showcases the power of the Exosuit to great effect.

After analyzing pre-order sales data, analyst firm Cowen and Company believes that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will sell around 40 percent less than Ghosts, and a whopping 70 percent less than the 2012 title Black Ops 2. Cowen & Co. noted that it believes that the Call of Duty franchise has moved past its best days.

Here's our full story on it in case you're interested in Call of Duty's seemingly downward turn.

With the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Season Pass, you’ll receive four DLC packs, early access to bonus DLC weapons, and the Atlas Gorge multiplayer map on day one, all for $49.99 ($10 less than the price of buying everything separately). To see the Atlas Gorge map in action, check out the Season Pass trailer right now.

Although Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare won’t be released until November 4, it appears as if a number of copies of the upcoming shooter have slipped out into the public.

The full list of maps, weapons and a ton of other details -- and even Sledgehammer's reaction -- can be seen here.

A recent article in Newsweek Magazine that apparently details 12 competitive multiplayer modes was found and put online by Reddit user Skaterkid9606. The article mentions the following modes: Free for All, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Capture the Flag, Kill Confirmed, Search & Destroy, Search & Rescue, Uplink, Momentum, Gun Game, and Infected.

Check them out here.

Possibly the most requested feature since Call of Duty multiplayer made it big, dedicated servers are coming to the shooter! We just don't know which platforms are getting it...

Are you tired of quick-scopers in multiplayer shooters? Well, if you are, you’ll be glad to know that won’t be prevalent in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare -- at least according to developer Sledgehammer Games.

On the official Call of Duty site, the Advanced Warfare PS3 to PS4 upgrade has been revealed, too. The digital base game, Season Pass and additional digital content will all be transferable for free — but only within the “console family.” So, this means, you can’t upgrade from the PS3 version to the Xbox One, and so on.

Full details right here.

It has been confirmed that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will have 13 multiplayer maps when it launches (14 if you have the Collector’s Edition), and it will feature the return of the Emblem Editor.

If you were expecting Battlefield-like destruction in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s multiplayer, then you’re out of luck. While the latest entry in the yearly shooter will have environmental destruction, it won’t be player-activated according to Sledgehammer Games.

While many people skip past the single-player campaign in a Call of Duty game, those of you who do decide to check out the Kevin Spacey and Troy Baker infused story of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare can expect a lengthier journey than previous years according to Sledgehammer Games co-founder Glen Schofield.

There's 45 total and a mix of single-player and multiplayer. 

Full list details it.

If you’ve seen gameplay footage of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, chances are you might have compared it to Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall — which is understandable since Respawn is comprised of staff that created the Call of Duty franchise.

This sentiment hasn’t flown over Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey. Over on Twitter, Condrey lamented that “no matter how hard you try and try, people will always be convinced Advanced Warfare is a ripoff of Titanfall.” Condrey also adds, that the studio is not worried about these claims, too.

Check the tweets out in full in this post.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare gameplay video has Michael Condry, co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, giving viewers a detailed look at three of the Exo Abilities that players can utilize in the game’s multiplayer matches.

Sony has confirmed that the game on PlayStation 4 is now available for pre-load in the United States, Canada, and Latin America for everyone who pre-ordered through the PlayStation Store.

For PlayStation 3 owners, the pre-load will begin at 10:30am PT/1:30pm ET on Saturday, November 1.

Details on that and the Day Zero edition can be seen in this post.

Speaking to PlayStation LifeStyle, we asked Sledgehamer Games’ Senior Development Director Judah Graham whether Advanced Warfare is using a brand new engine to run on now-gen platforms, or whether it was using a modified version of the shooter’s existing engine.

Here's what he said.
