What We Can Learn From The First COD: Advanced Warfare Screens

In the year 2054, a private military corporation (PMC) emerges with the power to rescue humanity from a war devastated by a global attack on its infrastructure. We've seen the Spacey trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfighter Warfare. Now let's see what the first three screens can tell us.

Right off the bat, I've learned that I will never be able to look at the logo for PMC Atlas without wanting to change it to Atlus. Did you notice? Here's the actual screenshot:


And here's a shot of Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow, the upcoming movie based off of Hiroshi Sakurazaka's novel "All You Need Is Kill".

Advanced exoskeletons are the way of the future, ladies and gentlemen. The only point of contention is whether they should be worn with protective helmets or wool caps. Mind you, Advanced Warfare does take place in the year 2054, so there's no telling what advances have been made in sheep technology. They probably wear exoskeletons as well.


Form this image we can deduce that laser disc players make a massive comeback sometime in the next four decades. It also informs us, along with its two screenshot brothers, that Kevin Spacey isn't on-screen during every single second of the game. That's unfortunate.


At least the three screens also came with a quote from Mr. Spacey himself.

"It's been a lot of fun working with the team to bring Jonathan Irons to life. The technology is truly remarkable and unlike anything I've done before. I'm excited to see where this goes."


The game excites Kevin Spacey.


This man could not afford a portable-ish laser disc player, and he's taking it out on these Laserbeaks.

That's pretty much all I've got, which is not unexpected. I put that "we" in the headline for a good reason. What are these three screenshots telling you?
