Spacey Warfare

Not content with being a big political bastard in the US remake of House of Cards, Kevin Spacey is turning his smug, villainous grin to the world of video games. He's a big deal in Sledgehammer's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which releases in a couple of weeks, chock-full of Titanfally jetpacks, impressive, jowly face-tech, and bits where characters are thrown back from slow-motion explosions. To commemorate the occasion, a 'launch' trailer has been released two weeks early, giving us extra time to prepare our monitors and HDTVs for the chilling arrival of Waxwork Kevin Spacey. Be afraid, be very afraid after the break.

Advanced Warfare comes out on the 4th of November, as confirmed by some block lettering at the tail end of the preceding trailer. The previous video (opens in new tab) detailed some of the changes being made to the series' Scorestreaks system, while the one before that (opens in new tab) revealed the game's new Exo Survival multiplayer mode.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
