Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Dev Talks Feedback to Recreate Classic Maps
Michael Condrey says the team is looking at opportunities to add more verticality in re-imagined maps.
Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey has spoken to VG247 about the possibility of bringing classic Call of Duty maps to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in the near future. This comes off after the release of the Havoc DLC where players wondered about the addition of Exo abilities to the older maps.
“One new piece of feedback we have heard in Havoc is the fan desire to see some classic maps make their way to Advanced Warfare, and we’re taking a look at some opportunities to really highlight the vertical gameplay mechanics in some re-imagined franchise favorites moving forward, like we did with Atlas Gorge.
“Verticality is a key component of the new movement set in Advanced Warfare, and we’ve doubled down on that for Havoc. We’re about to drop some news on how we’re pushing even further into that space in the coming DLC offerings, so stay tuned for more soon.”
As for the Havoc DLC maps, Condrey revealed that, “Feedback has been well received, and some of the new ways to play in the Havoc maps have really resonated with fans. The avalanche dynamic event in Drift is a fan favorite, as is the more sinister flavor of Sideshow with its creepy clowns and wide open sight lines. The AE4 is also hit, bringing the benefits of a directed energy weapon to the AR class for the first time.”
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s Havoc DLC is out now for the PS4, PS3 and PC having been available for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 since January.
