Once again, we are at the stage where the annual Call of Duty game has just been announced. COD Advanced Warfare is coming, but what we don’t know yet is what the COD Advanced Warfare co-op mode will be like, or in other words what Sledgehammer Games intends to do about the inevitable desire to see COD Advanced Warfare zombies.
What we do know is that there will be a co-op mode for the game, this has already been confirmed. We also know however, that Sledgehammer are not ready to reveal this yet – presumably it will be revealed at E3 2014 in June as a safe bet.
It’s clear that Sledgehammer will try to emulate Treyarch’s immensely popular zombies mode from Black Ops, even if some fans don’t want to see any clones apart from the ‘official’ mode which we’ll see next with Black Ops 3 zombies.
Having said that, we’ve also seen the early demand for some sort of zombies mode to be in the game and that gamers will buy it instantly if it happens.

Since Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is set in the year 2054, the co-op mode is likely going to be based heavily around futuristic weaponry, akin to what we have seen so far in the debut trailer.
More importantly, the trailer also gave us a glimpse of exoskeleton suits, aka mech suits which give soldiers special abilities and access to all kinds of wonderful weaponry to take down the bad guys – District 9, Elysium anyone?
Sledgehammer Games may have been inspired by Titanfall in their latest effort, but while the onus is on futuristic warfare, why not go all out and milk it for what it is worth?
We could see a co-op mode which essentially puts you against evil cyborgs that have managed to get exoskeleton suits of their own and will come at you wave after wave. There is great potential if handled correctly, not to mention players having access to some of the awesome hoverbikes that we also saw teased in the trailer.
As we wait for Sledgehammer to unveil their inevitable imagining of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Zombies, we want to know your best ideas on how it could work whilst set in the 2054 timeline.
