Call of Duty Advanced Warfare MP video shows exoskeleton abilities

[/img]Activision has released a Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare video offering a fresh look at the game’s multiplayer offering.

Narrated by Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey, the video focuses on exoskeleton abilities like cloaking, speed boosts and the ability to protect against explosives, and how these can be used to turn the tide of battle.

What sets Advanced Warfare multiplayer apart from previous Call of Duty titles is the adoption of what Sledgehammer Games is calling Exo Abilities – battery-powered abilities tied to your Exo Suit that add another layer of customization and gameplay at the cost of one loadout point.

They range from options that allow you to deploy a personal ballistic shield, increase movement speed, or even hover in mid-air. Their usage, of course, is bound to your suit’s battery life that drains while activated and is good only once per life.
