Developer Sledgehammer Games has unveiled a new trailer today showing off a glimpse at the story available in the futuristic Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, pointing out that while the multiplayer may be the big draw card, the story can still be an interesting premise.
In the trailer seen below, it seems terrorists have attacked nuclear power plants all over the globe in a show of unlikely coordination that causes the world's governments to topple. In the wake of this collapse, a private military corporation known as Atlas rises to restore order to humanity. Unfortunately, that corporation is lead by actor Kevin Spacey, who decides that after cleaning up the streets its time to use the company's military might to assume de facto control over the planet.
In related news, Activision has today announced the Atlas Limited Edition for Advanced Warfare, available exclusively to consoles. The limited edition ($109.95) comes with a bonus multiplayer map (Atlas Gorge) and a digital content pack featuring two weapons, an Atlas-decorated exoskeleton, an Atlas helmet, and five bonus supply drops. These will be further explained at the multiplayer reveal on August 11th.
The limited edition also comes with an extra upgrade token for the exoskeleton in the single-player campaign. It also includes a steelbook case and the Welcome to Atlas: Advanced Soldier Manual.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches November 4th for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
