After dropping the debut trailer this morning, Activision has announced a few more details about Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. In development at Infinity Ward, Infinite Warfare will “break new ground” by giving players command of their warship:
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare puts storytelling front and center in a rich, immersive narrative. Infinity Ward breaks new ground by exploring the weight of leadership and its responsibilities. In a desperate time of overwhelming adversity, the player, as Captain of their own warship, must take command against a relentless enemy. Experienced soldiers are thrust into extraordinary circumstances that will test their training and reveal their true character as they learn to lead and to make the hard decisions necessary to achieve victory. The game also introduces stunning, never before seen environments, new weaponry, and inventive player abilities to Call of Duty. The entire campaign – from boots-on-ground combat to piloting high speed space-fighters – occurs as a near seamless experience with few visible loading times, and delivers the hallmark, blockbuster franchise moments that fans love.
We’ve also learned that Infinite Warfare’s competitive multiplayer modes will include an emphasis on “front-line engagement,” and that players who love to play cooperatively can look forward to an all-new Zombies Mode. More details about Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer component will be available at a later date.
Infinity Ward will host a Twitch livestream at 1:30 PM (Eastern Time) to talk more about Infinite Warfare.
Activision also revealed a bit more about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered this morning. The game will be rebuilt by Raven Software to include “vibrant current generation visuals,” along with “fully improved texture resolution and detail, high-dynamic range lighting, lit and shadowing VFX particles, […] and much more.” The game will also include a selection of ten multiplayer maps including favorites such as “Crash,” “Backlot” and “Crossfire.” However, there’s still word on if Modern Warfare Remastered will be available as a standalone download.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 4. In addition to the previously-announced Legacy Edition and Digital Legacy Edition, the games will also be bundled together with a Season Pass in the Digital Deluxe Edition (Retail Price: $99.99). An even pricier Legacy Pro Edition (Retail Price: $129.99) will include both games, the Season Pass, a Soundtrack, and other digital items, all housed in a Steelbook case.
