The campaign takes place in the mid 21st century, when terrorists simultaneously attack nuclear reactors in North America, South America, Africa, Europe and Asia, throwing governments across the world into turmoil.

I’m beyond ecstatic for Advanced Warfare’s release – it’s bringing the Call of Duty series in a new direction, which I can’t wait to explore. Out of all the new features shown so far, I’m most excited for the exoskeletons each soldier is equipped with – I’ll finally be able to showcase my stealth skills by cloaking past enemies and using jump boosts to get to the top of buildings so I can practice sniping. I’m also psyched for the addition of lasers, as nothing beats the feeling of zapping your enemies with an energy beam. Finally, I’m excited for the single player campaign – while many of my friends jump directly into multiplayer on release day, I’m always sure to complete the story mode first. At E3 I was able to see a live demo of one of the missions, Bio Lab, and it absolutely blew me away. Without spoiling too much, I can say that the stealth mechanics worked great and it all ended with quite a bang.
