I feel Activision and Sledgehammer Games are feeling the pressure of returning to the genre that made the series so successful. The original Call of Duty games on PC knocked off the then leaders of war games Medal of Honor off the top spot. Call of Duty then pursued a futuristic direction, but if Battlefield 1 is anything to go by, the market has changed.

So here is the multiplayer reveal for Call of Duty WWII that features all manner of weaponry, vehicles and of course, some bloody trench shovel warfare (it was bows a couple years ago, now is the age of the shovel).

Activision have finally listened to their fan base and moved the next iteration of CoD away from the Titanfall rip off genre and back to boots on the ground. The outcry for a back to basics Call of Duty game ha been long overdue, the last being 2008's CoD: World at War featuring the voice talents of the brilliant Keifer Sutherland.

Though it is easy to wonder if the king of FPS games is maybe too late at stepping backwards? Last years Infinite Warfare was met with the lowest sales and easily the quickest price drops of any CoD to date. Will this new/old direction for the series be enough to get people back into the fast paced action that the franchise is known for?
There are too many questions to be asked and we just have to wait for answers, but we do not have to wait long.

So E3 kicked off yesterday with Microsoft's Conference and a blistering introduction to the all new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

While we may not have seen any more of Kevin Spacey, we certainly got a far better flavour of what the game will include as we were dropped into the "Induction" campaign level, which follows a group of US Marines as they drop into the battle lines of Seoul, South Korea.

Speaking in a recent interview with Game Informer; Sledgehammer Games, the developers behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare have gone into a little detail of the direction they hope to take the next entry in the Call of Duty franchise. Sledgehammer Co-Founder Glen Schofield indicated that the upcoming shooter will be treated like a brand new IP: "We approached this like we would any new IP. I mean, this has been one heck of a creative challenge. I mean, everything is brand new in the game."

While Sledgehammer is approaching the game with a fresh viewpoint, some of the traditional Call of Duty staples will still be in the final game as Senior Development Director Aaron Halon explained: "We really looked closely at a lot of the things – the pacing is different. There’s very core things of Call of Duty that won’t change, 60 FPS, the moments and things that are very memorable in the game, but our take on it, our spin on it is different."

The newest yearly installment of the Call of Duty franchise has been announced early, due to a leak that involved the main villain of the game. After a few teases earlier in the week, Sledgehammer games, who previously helped out Infinity Ward with Modern Warfare 3, had been released short teasers and images of their new entry into the Call of Duty franchise. Due to some leaked voice clips connecting these to Kevin Spacey, Activision decided to go ahead and release the trailer.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be released in November of this year, featuring Kevin Spacey of House of Cards fame as the games antagonist, the head of a PMC that essentially declares war on America. The trailer teases a lot about the setting to the game, showing gloves reminiscent of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, or Spider-man, that lets you climb walls, various UAVs with stealth aspects, advanced weaponry, futuristic tanks, the lot. It seems to be set in a near-future different to that of Black Ops, with a lot more advanced technology, though this will surely be explained when more information about the game is announced at E3.
