The New Havoc DLC for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Looks Awesome

The latest DLC for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is here, for Xbox season pass holders anyway, as they get early access to the new Havoc DLC today.

The beautiful new AE4 directed energy assault rifle, and AE4 Widowmaker custom weapon variant are now at your disposal, with both guns looks seriously awesome. The above video shows off the new guns, and just how mouth watering they look.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Minimum System Requirements Revealed

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is almost here and with the game hitting PC on the 4th of November (or the 3rd if you pre-order), many people are eager to find out if their PC can run it.

The minimum system requirements for the game are pretty straight forward and you won’t require a lot of high-end hardware to get this game running; no surprise for a game that is usually a lazy console port. One thing that does stand out is that the game requires 6GB of RAM, I personally have 8GB and I’m sure many of you do, but 4GB and even 2GB equipped systems are still the norm for many users. I suspect this is especially true those who are still rocking the GTS 450 or the HD 5870 graphics cards.

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 64-Bit
  • Processor: Intel CoreTM i3-530 @ 2.93 GHz / AMD PhenomTM II X4 810 @ 2.80 GHz or better
  • Memory: 6 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 @ 1GB / ATI Radeon HD 5870 @ 1GB or better
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Hard Drive: 55 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX-compatible

Recommended PC specifications are not available, which worries me as they’re likely hiding one of two facts. The first would be that the recommended specifications are quite low; which could highlight how far behind their games engine has become compared to other modern PC exclusive shooters. The second would be that they could be stupidly high specifications; which could highlight that the game is poorly optimized. This close to release, I would expect full specifications to have been made available, giving gamers the chance to equip their systems to best enjoy the game.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Spec List Is the Same as Ghosts

Hmm now correct me if I’m wrong but the term ‘Next Generation’ means better all-round quality games, am I right? So with the developers of Advanced Warfare saying “Next Generation” about every 4 seconds in every trailer why hasn’t the spec list changed from that of Ghosts? Surely with a “new Next Generation engine” they would be able to push higher res textures, more particles, models on screen etc which would make the game more demanding and require more powerful hardware to run it smoothly. Not according to the spec lists, they are identical, nothing has changed, so it makes you wonder, how “Next Gen” is it really?

The same thing happened with Ghosts, all this talk about a “Next Gen engine and active fish AI” and then when it came out it looked like every other Call of Duty. So what could they have done to actually improve this years CoD? I for one hope they have actually tried and stopped reusing models from 5 year old games, I saw the digger from Modern Warfare 1 in Ghosts and just sighed. From what I’ve seen about Advanced Warfare is that it does look better and the animation looks better too, this is by watching some of the campaign footage they released. Going by this I would advise people to just hold back on the pre-order until launch or the multiplayer reveal, which is getting close now.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Atlas Pro Edition Will Set You Back $120

Brace yourself, $120 for 1 game, never in a million years, this is when publishers like to take the p*ss in my opinion, what you get is a load of digital content and 2 things that are actually physical.

Here is the full list of content you’ll receive if you buy this hideously overpriced package:

Season Pass
Atlas Gorge Bonus Multiplayer Map: A re-imagined Pipeline map from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
Atlas Digital Content Pack: Customized gear inspired by the Atlas Corporation:*Bal-27 AE Assault Rifle – A custom Atlas designed rifle
Atlas 45 AE Pistol – A custom Atlas designed pistol
Atlas Exoskeleton – A white, red and black Atlas exoskeleton
Atlas Helmet – A custom Atlas helmet
Atlas Player Card: A custom Atlas calling card and emblem
5 Bonus Supply Drops: Customized gear and weapons.
Single Player Exoskeleton Upgrade Token: A token for an extra upgrade/perk for your exoskeleton in the campaign
Official Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Soundtrack: A digital copy of the game score by Harry Gregson-Williams and music by Audiomachine.

Now some of you may be thinking, wow I get the season pass too which is usually $60 so that means I’m saving money, you’re right but I always wait until I see at least 1 trailer for a DLC pack before I even consider buying the Season Pass, you never know, it might be awful.

All in all I think this package is a little ridiculous, tons of digital content, next to no physical content. If this edition came with a little model or something like that then it would be worth $120 but all digital content that hardly alters the way the game plays is not worth it.

Will you be picking this edition up or are you looking for a cheaper way to play the latest titles?
