  • Microsoft Again Secures Timed Exclusives on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC

    It's a tale as old as time. Activision likes money. Microsoft has money. Microsoft gives Activision money for an exclusive period of DLC for a new Call of Duty game and the owners of other platforms get pissed off. Ahh, such a sweet story.

    It's indeed what happened again today with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Once again, Microsoft has secured the rights to get the DLC first on Xbox platforms.
    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, developed by Sledgehammer Games (co-developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3), harnesses the first three-year, all next-gen development cycle in franchise history, and again brings all add-on content first to Xbox.

    Some are saying that the exclusive period is only for one month but there has been no confirmation of this span of time anywhere. Frankly, at this point, the more surprising news would be if Activision didn't ignore other platforms and released the DLC at the same time for everyone.

    Ah, but let's not forget the biggest offender of them all: The fact that there is already DLC planned and announced for the game a mere day after the game's reveal and months ahead of the game's actual release. Don't you just love it?

    Here is the rest of the entry from the Xbox Wire:
    An Advanced World:
    An Advanced Soldier:
    An Advanced Arsenal:
    • Harnessing the power of next-gen platforms, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare introduces a new hi-tech, advanced arsenal and ability set, arming players with all-new equipment, technology, perks, and vehicles like hoverbikes and highly specialized drones.
    • Players can also choose between standard ammunition and an all-new class of directed-energy weaponry that enables totally new gameplay dynamics.

    And with exoskeletons delivering a massive force multiplier and unprecedented tactical freedom, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare evolves every firefight.
