Activision has announced the latest Call of Duty, Advanced Warfare, can be played one day ahead of its official release on November 4. The early access to the full-release is for those customers that pre-order the game, as they will receive the Day Zero Edition.
The publisher added that there are three Collector's Editions (Atlas Pro, Altas Limited, and Digital Pro) of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, all of which also get access to the Day Zero Edition's early access on November 3, as well as its specific content.
The press release mentioned that the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition would feature two new custom weapons and the advanced arsenal. The two new custom weapons are AK-12G assault rifle and Crossbow-B2 energy weapon, while the advanced arsenal features the "Bullet Brass exoskeleton and EM1 Quantum directed energy weapon," as detailed on the FAQ page of the dedicated Day Zero website.
The players with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition will also be able to level-up quickly by earning double XP throughout the day of early access. Activision notes that Day Zero Edition of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be available with select retailers, and that availability is subject to demand. Users would have to check whether retailers serving them carry the Day Zero Edition or not.
If the Day Zero Edition is not available, pre-order customers have the option to ask for the refund, or can buy the launch unit to receive a code. The code will enable users to download all the Day Zero Edition content.
The Day Zero Edition announcement by Activision came alongside its first look at the game's new multiplayer tweaks at Gamescom. The new tweaks include new maps, weapons along with the new Pick 13 format, which in previous games was the Pick 10. The new Pick 13 create-a-class system comes with more customisable options.
