This, right here, is an excitable trailer. We've got PR-tastic hyperbole like ‘transcends the line between game and film' and ‘profound reinvention of Call of Duty multiplayer' in our faces, and you can't argue with that. That means put your pants back on and pay attention.
In the gaming world, there are few big effing deals bigger or effing-er than Call of Duty. As such, it's fair to expect fans to be protective. To care. To bitch at the Internet ‘til they can bitch no more if there's any upheaval afoot.
That's the thing with games. Change too much, and there's boycotts and petty whining and/or death threats-amundo. Change too little, and the same applies, just from somebody else.
The lesson? As Grandma Egotastic always said, you can't please everyone. "Especially not gamers," she added, "because a lot of them are assholes." So what the hell are we to make of this? How can Advanced Warfare be both a ‘profound reinvention' and ‘the Call of Duty fans have been asking for?'
We don't know. Perhaps this trailer does.
