Call of Duty soldiers battle villain Kevin Spacey
Activision Publishing set out to reload the multi-billion-dollar franchise, bringing in studio Sledgehammer Games to put its spin on the title and taking advantage of advanced capabilities in new-generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. Sledgehammer modified mechanics of playing the military shooter game by adding "Exoskeleton suits" that give characters super-soldier abilities. A "Riveting new story" was woven into the game, along with "An iconic new character" played by Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey. Spacey has been quoted saying "Call of Duty: Advance Warfare" is likely to become the first video game he ever plays. The game is set in the year 2054, when a private military corporation run by Spacey's character is the dominant power. A California judge recently shot down a lawsuit filed by former Panama dictator Manuel Noriega after his likeness appeared in a "Call of Duty" video game. State Judge William Fahey sided with video game publisher Activision Blizzard, dismissing a lawsuit that creators of the game had decried as "Frivolous." Hordes of excited gamers descended on shops across the globe a year ago for the launch of the previous instalment of the game, "Call of Duty: Ghosts."
