The first images of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare hit the Web yesterday, in advance of what was supposed to be a proper unveiling this coming Sunday. Activision decided to pull the trigger early, however, and we're glad it did: Advanced Warfare could be the best Call of Duty title we've seen in quite some time. Like... Read more...
The first of four pieces of DLC to hit Call of Duty: Ghosts is due out at the end of the month (28th for Xbox, later for other platforms), and Activision wants to make sure you understand what makes it so epic. This first DLC is called "Onslaught", and consists of four brand-new multiplayer maps, the first installment... Read more...
As nutty as it may seem, the thing I get most excited about whenever the latest Call of Duty drops is the single-player campaign. I know - I should be ashamed. While many consider the story to be the weakest part of any CoD, I eat it up, and given the fact that no CoD has failed to keep me engaged, I have rather high... Read more...
Gaming has changed a lot over the years, primarily due to our reliance on the cloud, broadband Internet connections, and the seemingly never-ending desire for more, more, more. Replay value has taken on an entirely new meaning, and for developers, they're able to squeeze more revenue out of existing titles on the... Read more...
The CEO of Activision Blizzard Bobby Kotick announced this morning that he would lead an investor buyout of the company worth approximately $8.2 billion dollars. The move would free Blactivision (how has this moniker never caught on?) to become an independent publisher and free it from the clutches of Vivendi, the... Read more...
Let's face it: if there's one aspect of gaming that's a bit lacking, it's zombies. To help remedy this obvious void, Call of Duty: Black Ops II developer Treyarch is packing-in a zombie-filled story mode in its upcoming DLC, dubbed "Uprising". If you're already familiar with the base game (which we reviewed at... Read more...
Don't believe anyone who tells you the Revolution won't be televised, that's a bunch of hogwash. The Revolution is going to be on televisions all over the place, especially starting February 28, 2013, which is when Activision plans to release the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution DLC map pack for PC and...

The Call of Duty series is immense. Each title manages to sell a record-breaking number of copies, and across all of the platforms they're available for, players tend to stick with them until the next one comes out. Despite all this, the game has very little presence in the pro-gaming landscape. Instead, it's titles... Read more...
With the original Call of Duty Black Ops, Treyarch wanted to prove that it wasn't the "underdog" of the Call of Duty series. They were set to prove they deliver titles as good, or better, than Infinity Ward. While the success of that game versus Modern Warfare could be disputed, it seems to be widely agreed-upon that it was the best Call of... Read more...
I have a confession to make: I enjoy the Call of Duty series. Some may scoff and hit me with a splash of Haterade, but the fact of the matter is, there's something that remains consistent with each new game in the series: I have fun. Fun is the operative word here, because while the series, like many others, has its obvious faults, what... Read more...
After playing through Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's single-player campaign and spending some solid time with the game in multiplayer, we can attest that MW3 is the latest well-executed title in the long-running Call of Duty franchise. The game's production values are excellent, the single-player campaign is gripping and intense, and all... Read more...

Every so often, a game is monumental enough to warrant a limited run of themed consoles. Halo is one, and evidently the newest version of Call of Duty is another. Shortly after seeing a new multiplayer demo before the rapidly-approaching Nov. 11 release, there's now proof that a custom edition CoD-themed 360 (320GB)... Read more...
It feels like just yesterday that we were picking up our first copy of Call of Duty, and now, we're looking at the latest iteration. A new video has surfaced on YouTube showcasing Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer capabilities. The game itself is just a few months out, and now we're getting a look at what that game will...

Activision has added that Nov. 8 will include more than just the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It will also launch Call of Duty: Elite, a social-networking twist to a first-person player shooter's multiplayer component. There will be a free version of Call of Duty: Elite, and a premium (paid) version as well. It's unclear how much... Read more...
Call of Duty: Black Ops will launch on November 9. It will be available on Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, and the Nintendo DS. Activision has just released the official launch trailer. Although the YouTube video says it was uploaded on Oct. 29, it was done then so it could render in HD and be tested properly. It was only...

Covering the declarations of Bobby Kotick is a bit like monitoring the behavior of an active volcano. It's impossible to predict exact when he'll blow, but when he inevitably does, the event will blast molten stupid in every direction. The man's latest bright idea is to charge for cutscenes. This wouldn't affect in-game play, but would be... Read more...
