Microsoft is to host a Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer reveal just prior to Gamescom.
The event will take place on August 11 at 6pm BST/7pm CEST/1am EDT/10am PDT and is expected to be broadcast on Xbox Live and Xbox.com.
Sledgehammer Games said in June that its debut Call of Duty title will shake up the series’ tried and trusted multiplayer offering.
Set in the 2054, Advanced Warfare’s campaign features mech suits, hover bikes and directed energy weapons, among other futuristic gear and vehicles, some of which will also be included in the game’s multiplayer component.
Sledgehammer co-founder Glen Schofield said: “We’ll have our own style. The exoskeletons are definitely in there and that’s the core of the game.”
Fellow studio co-founder Michael Condrey added: “Our multiplayer has what I’m going to call the biggest set of new cool gear that you’ve seen in a long time.”
The Call of Duty Advanced Warfare release date is November 4 on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC.
