"Call of Duty: Advance Warfare" isn't set for release until Nov. 4 but if you need a sneak peek of what to expect from the 11th installment of the first-person shooter franchise, all you have to do is get shot.
Okay, that's a bit of an extreme measure unless you're an avid fan like Justine Ezarik. In that case, you can watch her get shot as part of her behind-the-scenes tour Sledgehammer Games studio in California.
As video games have progressed from the earliest days of 'Pong' to today's blockbusters, so has the technology behind creating and designing video games. Today, videos games are treated like productions with actors (hello, Kevin Spacey!), mo-cap suits and theaters to digitally capture their performances down to the most minute facial movement.
And that's not even counting the tech featured in "Advanced Warfare". With the game set 40 years in the future, players can expect even more high-tech gadgetry and explosions that would make even Michael Bay weep in awe. For more on the new game, give the video above a watch.
