Activision has revealed that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will feature twelve multiplayer modes right from day one.
Most of these are returning favorites, with two new modes that will be a refreshing change for Call of Duty veterans. The modes include Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Hardpoint, Search & Destroy, Kill Confirmed, Domination, and Team Domination; while the two new modes are Uplink and Momentum.
It has been built with teamwork in mind, and to promote fast and frantic competitive gameplay. Both teams fight for control of a satellite drone, and must race – with it in hand – to the opponent’s uplink.
Based on the War game mode originally found in Call of Duty: World at War, Momentum is the Call of Duty version of tug of war. Five consecutive capture points exist on the map, but only one is active at a time.
The more kills and captures your team gets, the faster you are able to capture additional points. Once the other team captures on you, the momentum meter gets reset, so your team needs to be at its best the whole game.
The remaining three modes have currently not been revealed but might be in the coming days during the duration of Gamescom 2014.
Earlier on Activision announced the Day Zero Edition that grants players 24 hours of early access, along with Double XP and an assortment of other digital goods.
The publisher has not confirmed whether all of these twelve multiplayer modes will be available for the Day Zero Edition holders. If they are granting full access to everyone a day earlier, they should be.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is scheduled for release on November 4 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
