Changes to Call of Duty Advanced Warfare look set to come thick and fast if a list by Michael Condrey on Reddit yesterday is anything to go by. According to the Sledgehammer studio head they are “actively listening for ways to make Advanced Warfare even better.” Some items they are looking at include: “MP chat icon size and placement, Kill confirmed score limit, Camo challenge tuning, Prestige emblem reset, Speed reload timing, 2XP messaging, Score mismatch when player leaves public lobby (Doesn’t affect Combat Record) and COD Vision team color improvements.”

Trials Fusion will receive a free update later this year which will add online multiplayer and double the number of players from four to eight. [More…]
