Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC to release first on Xbox One and Xbox 360
Downloadable content for the just-revealed Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will release first on Xbox platforms, Activision and Microsoft confirmed today.
"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," Microsoft announced shortly after the release of the game's first trailer.
While the trailer revealed the overall premise of the game, Xbox Wire has tons of other details regarding actual gameplay features, like the addition of a new class of directed-energy weaponry and powerful exoskeletons that "evolve every aspect of a soldier's battle readiness."
The key takeaway however, is that DLC will be coming first to Xbox platforms. Of course, that shouldn't come as much of a surprise given Activision's history with Microsoft. Both Black Ops 2 and Ghosts saw DLC release first on Xbox, so there was really no reason to expect anything different with Advanced Warfare. I just find it funny that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was just revealed today and we're already talking about downloadable content. What does that say about the state of the industry we're currently in?
