Advanced Warfare is building itself up to be the Call of Duty title that might stands apart from its predecessors, by bringing a brand new style of gameplay to the franchise, thanks to its brand new engine. Today we will be taking a look at what exactly Sledgehammer have to say regarding their 'new engine' as well as 9 new screen shots that have just been released. 

Sledgehammer Games' new engine

In May’s Edition of GameInformer, Sledgehammer Games stated that Advanced Warfare has a brand new engine, but many Call of Duty fans were left wondering as to what that really means. In the newest edition of Edge Magazine, Michael Condrey the chief operating and development officer of Sledgehammer, has clarified what the engine is and how it works. 

Condrey described that the team at Sledgehammer has built majority of the engine from scratch. Some of the lines of old Call of Duty engine exists, but majority of it has been built from new and that the old engine is unrecognizable.

Condrey says, “Although what the studio means by ‘new’ in this context isn’t what the internet means when it complains about the old COD engine.

There are, says Condrey, lines of the old engine’s code still in Advanced Warfare, just as there are in most studios’ engines entering a new generation, but enough has been built from scratch to make it almost unrecognizable.

“We have new rendering, animation, physics and audio systems” 

Where this may not be a completely new engine, it is still far different from the previous Call of Duty titles that all ran off of a modified Quake engine. Many of the facets of the Sledgehammer engine have been built from scratch and this means that the game should have a vastly different feel and look from what you have become used to in the Call of Duty series. This is a bold move from Sledgehammer Games, as they seem to be throwing away the safety harness and propelling themselves into a dangerous place by changing the core mechanics of a title, that has built success on being consistently familiar to its players.
