"This year, the app focuses on an enhanced Clan Wars experience, enriched Clan management, and unique content creation."
Two big features from last year return in 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' Namely, the companion app and Clan Wars. Clan Wars is multiplayer mode that brings player together to compete both in the the traditional multiplayer and through clan management, donn via the app. The companion app will be releases on Zero Day, aka November 3rd for iOS, Android, Windows and Kindle devices.
In addition to being able to manage a clan and track member progress, this year's app will let's users create custom player and Clan emblems.
Clan Wars, meanwhile begins with a pre-qualifying war which will take place November 15th-16th with the first official Clan War to follow on November 26th.
Here's a summary from Activision on Clan Wars and companion features:
Your new Clan Wars experience begins with the War Room, providing a commander’s oversight of the most important Clan Wars activity. Three scrollable panels offer pertinent info on the current Clan War, previous engagements, and Top War Contributors. Utilize the Battle Report for a quick overview of current Clan Wars activity. Tap and scroll through nodes for a detailed view of capture objectives, Clan wins, and multiplayer XP bonuses. Check the Clan Wars scoreboard to see where your Clan ranks against the competition. Review Top War Contributors to discover your most impactful members during each engagement. Reach into the Clan Wars Vault for an archived history of past triumphs and defeats. See your final standing, accumulated Clan XP, and any earned rewards.
To better accommodate scheduling conflicts, we’re introducing the Active Roster. If some members of your Clan are unable to participate in an upcoming Clan War, the Clan Leader can remove those members from the Active Roster. Upon doing so, the absent members will no longer count towards the Roster count and any wins achieved by those members will not be recorded against the active war. The Clan Leader can just as easily add those members back to the Active Roster when they’re available to compete.
Your Clan Profile page has been bolstered to highlight the top performing members of your Clan. Each week, we will highlight your most active member, MVP, and player with the highest KDR. Nothing wrong with a little friendly competition, right?
Clan Calling Cards
Exclusive Clan Calling Cards will be supported in the game and in-app. Level up your Clan by competing in Clan Wars or playing multiplayer matches with Clan members to unlock more Clan Calling Cards. Emblem
Emblems are back in-game and in-app. Using our robust Clan Emblem editor, start designing your Emblem in the app while on the go, and then finish it at home on your console, or vice versa. In addition, this year, we’re giving all Clan members the ability to design and submit a Clan Emblem to their Clan Leader for approval.
