We're a little under two months away from the launch of this year's Call of Duty entry, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. And since it feels like no major game can come out and surprise people anymore, let's delve into the game's Achievement/Trophy list, because that's been revealed today.
The list was first unveiled by IGN and of course, there are some mild spoilers regarding the single player campaign. But just like other Call of Duty achievements/trophies, there are several that require you to do 'x' amount of things with thing 'y' on the 'z' level. Does "Kill 20 enemies while linked to the Mobile Cover Drone," sound like something you've done in a previous Call of Duty games or other shooters? Congrats, you've now accounted for nearly half of the things on the list.
That said, if you don't want certain vehicles and gameplay sections spoiled for you, or you think you could guess the plot based on the names of campaign levels, it may be best to avoid looking at it right now.

Speaking of Advanced Warfare's campaign, don't expect this one to be as short as its predecessors and end after 5-6 hours. Sledgehammer Games' first shot with the Call of Duty series' campaign mode will apparently clock in with a longer playtime. Said Glen Schofield, studio head and co-founder of Sledgehammer, in response to a question on Twitter, this particular campaign is "coming in longer than the last few."
Schofield didn't elaborate on how the campaign for Advanced Warfare would be longer, though, so there could simply be more chapters or longer sequences that help extend the game. Previous games like Call of Duty: Black Ops II introduced branching paths and multiple choices to give players a reason to replay the single-player again, and it appears that the team at Sledgehammer is also focusing on the single-player a little more. We'll have to a wait just a while longer to find out how. Maybe rewatch the most recent trailer until then.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare releases on November 4, 2014 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC.
