Call of Duty Demo

I played it a couple of minutes ago and it's intense. It's kind of short but man your adrenaline will be pumping as you mow down Nazis with your squad. It's up at fileplanet and other gaming websites.

In case you're not aware, there was quite a large fuss over the Call of Duty demo. It was going to be released only to Fileplanet subscribers for a one week exclusive but a group of fansites took issue with this. Then earlier today or last night Activision released this response:

The recent reaction to the upcoming Call of Duty demo has caught us here at Activision by surprise. We're appreciative and excited about the high level of enthusiasm the game has received throughout the gaming community. Due to the tremendous demand for the demo we are answering the call by not only making the demo freely available to all gamers at the same time, but early This Friday Night - just in time for the long weekend.

Gamespy has been a great partner - working with us so that we can make our fans happy and give them a taste of a game they're clearly excited about. The demo will be available across the net on fan and gaming coverage sites, including GameSpy's FilePlanet.

We think you'll love Call of Duty, and we can't wait for you to play the demo. Look for it Friday night!
Thats pretty cool, so we all get to play the demo quite a bit earlier thanks to these guys and their complaints. I downloaded the demo earlier today and the game is pretty fun. Its hard to tell how it stacks up to say MOH:AA with only 1 level, but the emphasis on squad based combat is appealing. The aiming with the right click is also unique and something I haven't seen. I wish there was multiplayer.

I'll throw in what led to Activision's response above.


After discussions with Activision, the following websites will not be carrying the Call of Duty playable demo, even after its exclusivity is over. This is due to Activision's decision to not accede to the reasonable request of making the demo freely available to all game enthusiasts at the same time.

3D Downloads
3D Gamers
Blue's News
EdgeFiles (Callofduty.org)
Gamer's Hell
Tiscali Games

The above-listed websites hope to show Activision that the enthusiast industry is strongly opposed to the idea of exclusive demo releases.

Feedback from our users shows that gamers hate to be forced through a single point of congestion if they want a demo right away. While these websites are actually competitors, this competition provides the freedom of choice that enthusiasts want by offering the widest possible distribution of any demo (a sample intended to interest as many gamers as possible in the full product, after all) rather than the most restricted one.

Therefore, something this disrespectful of the industry as a whole has inspired all of these websites to stand together in this open letter.

Deals like this hurt the industry much more than they could possibly enhance a single relationship, and we ask for your support in sending out this message.

Played the demo a few hours ago. Nothing to wake the place up like machine gun fire up the wazoo.

Truth be told, I only realized of the game's existance when I saw on Blues News that a bunch of sites that are normally competitors made a stand and boycotted Fileplanet's exclusive. I had been waiting all day for the release of the LO:MAC demo. Of course, Ubi Soft steps in and says "it's done, we'll just sit on it for a month".

Out of sight, out of mind should be my new mantra after playing this waiting game.

Monty this seems strange to me.
The movies had that movie thing,
but nonsense has a welcome ring
and heroes don't come easy.

I got the demo last night and at first I wasn't sure what to make of it. It starts out with the exact, Exact same opening shot of MOHAA. It thought this was going to be a cheesy ripoff but I was sorely, sorely mistaken. It looks and plays phenomenally. I definitely get it when it comes out. Which is good because I had such high hopes for Day of Defeat which kind've sucked IMHO. Download this demo!

I absolutely love the fact that you have proper manuoevers like the sidestep, prone and target which were all sorely missing from MoH. The greatest aspect of this game is how you are actually with a squad during the whole mission, much like the tag-line they're using "The War was not won by one man, but by the lives of many...".

When the emplacements are shooting out of the window in the hotels in St Mere Eglise is looks phenomenonly realisitic, the muzzel flash from they heavy artiliery is fantastic.

I could go on for hours praising this game, I had high hope, they were delivered and then they were smashed beyond any hope possible, this game is truly amazing.

p.s. hopefully the entire 24 missions will be the same!

My favorite part in the demo was when you got to the ruined wall segment. The nazis appeared intelligent, and would duck under cover to reload and so forth. It took some time to pick them off properly, it reminded me of a duck shoot - but it also seemed very realistic and well done.

Call of Duty Demo is sweet!

i just played through the short but really fun demo of Call of Duty. I think you can only get it on fileplanet if you're a subscriber though.

edit: thanks for moving it, totally didn't see the topic

Nice preview MrWynd Has anyone run up the field with the dead cows and been really close to an explosion? It's amazing, the sound hollows out and your vision blurs! Just like what would happen in real life.

It's a little embarassing to admit it but this game has given me shellshock (while playing that is), I suppose playing it with the sounds up realllllly high on a big screen doesn't help. It's just so damn intense... I bet WW2 vets would agree that this has captured the ferocity of the Second World War.

The shell shock effects are pretty damn cool. (You can clear 'em a little faster by "shaking your head" - ie moving your mouse back and forth real fast.

I've played and/or seen the developers play through several of the other levels that aren't in the demo (I love my job sometimes). They're just as good, if not better.

I can't WAIT for this game. Actually, I can't wait for mid-next month when I'm supposed to get a beta build!!!!

It's amazing, the first rush across the cow fields, confronted by mortar fire and machine guns, ducking behind a fence that doesn't stop bullets very well....intense was a good word for it.

VERY cool demo! Does anyone know if you can play multiplayer co-op in the story mode? Specifically two player?

My buddy and I got hooked playing "story mode co-op" on Doom 2 several years ago. I get frustrated when FPS'ers come out with multiplayer mode that you can only play in a "Deathmatch" or PvP type scenario. If I want to get laughed at or sworn to in l33t d00d talk, I can always buy EQ...

There are so many WWII fps out there...but this one looks like it'll be cool none the less. I can't believe how many people in my squad kick the bucket...I memorized one of my squad member's names and at the end of the level, I didn't see him anywhere. I've done that three times and never met any at the end.

There are already some mods released just for this demo, including a realism mod, a mod that lets you play as axis, etc.

Certainly seems encouraged that a game is getting so much community support while still in the demo stage.

Anyone play the promo release? WOWOWOWOW I played it, it includes like 5 missions instead of the 1 included in the demo. You get to try out some other factions (Russia, English, American, some other one) Its soooo incredible! This one might be worth my money if they can make some decent netcode for it and play MP.

I dont think netcode will be a problem, Grant Collier the president of Infinity Ward hangs out in the COD resource site and is talking well with the community. He has even given an e-mail addy for ppl to write and suggest ideas for COD and the future of the game. Lets hope Activision will listen better than EA has.

PS, Try looking for the Dawnville demo if you can find it, More intense than the orginal demo.
