Sledgehammer Games has announced continuous support for the eSports community with its upcoming shooter, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Promising more details to be handed in later, the developer gave us slight teasers in the shape of features that will be included in the game.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will feature LAN lobbies, Private match rule-set value slider, Ranked playlists, Round-based Domination, Hardpoint and Capture the Flag, and an expanded Oracle mode when using the Broadcaster feature.
In the past decade, the Call of Duty franchise has shown considerable promise to make an impact in the eSports circle. Call of Duty 2 and then Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, were perhaps the best competitive titles and the golden eras for professional Call of Duty tournaments.
With Modern Warfare 2, the competitive side took a nose dive as Infinity Ward decided on cashing in the game, rather than banking on quality. With the release of Black Ops II years later, things looked better again, thanks to Treyarch.
It’s certainly great to know that Sledgehammer Games will try to keep the Call of Duty eSports train moving.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is scheduled for release on November 4 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
