All Articles: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Xbox Store Today: CoD Infinite Warfare, Atari Flashback Classics Vol 1 & Vol 2, Gas Guzzlers Extreme

We’re going back to the past and forward to the future (while also going back to the past) in today’s Xbox Games Store update.

Infinity Ward is taking the Call of Duty franchise into a far-flung future with sci-fi-style weaponry, cyborgs, and space battles in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for the Xbox One. But if you’re someone who’s looking for something a little more familiar, the developer has also worked hard to produce Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, a bonus game included in Infinite Warfare’s pricey Legacy Edition.

If you’d rather go further back, Atari has released two new collections of Atari 2600 classics for the Xbox One… Atari Flashback Classics Volume 1 and Atari Flashback Classics Volume 2. Both packages include 50 different titles, with Combat, Centipede, Swordquest, and Star Raiders included in Volume 1, and Asteroids, Haunted House, Adventure, and Major Havoc in Volume 2.

Finally this week, Gas Guzzlers Extreme is now available for the Xbox One and it features the type of car combat that was all the rage back in the late 90s. Oh, and there’s also zombies for some reason.

More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)

CoD: Infinite Warfare, BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Destroy All Humans, more added to PS Store

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will report for PS4 duty on the PlayStation Store this Friday. Activision and Infinity Ward tapped Game of Thrones actor Kit Harrington to portray “The Face of the Enemy” in their interstellar war, and don’t that the Legacy Edition will also include a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

Also available to download this week is BlazBlue: Central Fiction, the latest 2D fighter from Arc System Works. This time around, 35 characters will battle it out on the PS4 and PS3.

Finally this week, THQ Nordic will bring back the Destroy All Humans! series with a PS2-On-PS4 re-release of the first game in the series, Destroy All Humans!

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And don’t forget that a full list of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

New Retail Releases: CoD Infinite Warfare, Mario Party Star Rush, SteamWorld Collection, More

newreleases103016

After the Battlefield franchise brought the fight all the way back to World War I, Activision decided to take the Call of Duty series even further into the future with this week’s release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Developer Infinity Ward has fully embraced the science fiction genre this time around with lasers, robots, space battles, and a whole lot more.

This pivot to the future shouldn’t be that surprising as the Call of Duty franchise first broke through in a big way with the release of 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. PS4 and Xbox One owners will get a chance to relive that seminal entry in the entry if they purchase Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – Legacy Edition, which includes access to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

A different kind of war will take place this week in Mario Party: Star Rush for the 3DS. Nintendo’s series of Mario-themed board games has always provided plenty of multiplayer shenanigans, and Star Rush will likely be no different.

Finally this week, a handful of games that were previously only available as digital downloads will be released in special retail version this week. Image & Form will package together SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist in SteamWorld Collection for the PS4 and Wii U. 13AM Games will release a Runbow: Deluxe Edition for the Wii U. And Bandai Nacmo will bring Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 + Arcade Game Series to the Xbox One.

The full list of this week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)

Activision has deployed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered’s Launch Trailer

One of the most-popular and best-reviewed games in the Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, will receive a remastered release this November, but Activision wants to start getting excited now. Yesterday, the publisher deployed a Launch Trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, and it hits all the high points.

PS4 players who pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe Edition or the Legacy Edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be able to download Modern Warfare’s single-player Campaign on October 5. Sadly, they’ll have to wait until November 4 to jump back into the game’s multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will also be available on the PC and Xbox One for players who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition or the Legacy Edition of Infinite Warfare. As of right now, Activision doesn’t have any plans to sell Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone, but that could always change in the future.

Activision unveils first Multiplayer Trailer for CoD: Modern Warfare Remastered; All 16 multiplayer maps to be available by end of year

Publishers and developers from all over the world took over Seattle this weekend to party it up at PAX West, one of the biggest gaming conventions on the calendar. Rather than join them, Activision set up their own gaming convention in Los Angeles to celebrate the past, present, and future of the Call of Duty franchise.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered hits all three rather nicely, and Activision used this weekend’s Call of Duty XP event to unveil the game’s first Multiplayer Trailer, which has been embedded above. Ten multiplayer maps from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be included in the game when it launches this Fall, and Activision has also promised that the remaining six maps will be made available (at no additional cost) by the end of the year.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 4, but you can only get it if you purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition or Legacy Edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

See ship-to-ship combat IN SPACE from Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Even though they’re one of the world’s most-profitable publishers, Activision doesn’t host their own E3 Press Conference. Instead, the company has always partnered with Microsoft or Sony to promote their latest projects on gaming’s biggest stage. Things weren’t any different this year as Sony presented a brand new gameplay trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare during their showcase.

In the trailer, fans of the franchise can watch as Call of Duty goes into space for the first time. Players will be able to take part in ship-to-ship dogfighting and even eject from their fighter to breach an enemy ship.

The trailer ends with a sneak peek at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, along with an offer for PS4 owners to get it early. Anyone who pre-purchases the Digital Deluxe Edition or Legacy Edition of Infinite Warfare will receive access to Modern Warfare Remastered’s campaign on October 5. But even if you pre-purchase, you’ll have to wait until the official launch day to jump online in a multiplayer match.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be released for the PS4 on November 4. It’ll also be available for the PC and Xbox One (alongside Modern Warfare Remastered) on the same day.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will not be available as a standalone download

callofduty-logo-header

The Call of Duty news continues to roll on today, and now we’ve learned that Activision has no plans to sell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone download. According to an FAQ on the publisher’s official website, Modern Warfare Remastered will only be available as an add-on bonus bundled with special edition copies of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare:

6. How can I get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is only available through the Legacy, Legacy Pro, and Digital Deluxe editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

7. Can I play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered without buying Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare?
No, you must own Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in order to get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

The Legacy, Legacy Pro, and Digital Deluxe Editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare are all priced at a $20 premium over the standard edition, so if you want Modern Warfare Remastered, it looks like you’re going to have to pay extra for it. However, the FAQ’s wording doesn’t rule out the possibility that it’ll be available as a standalone download at a later date. But for now, the only way to make sure you receive a copy is to purchase a pricey special edition of Infinite Warfare.

More CoD: Infinite Warfare details announced… story, special editions, Zombies Mode, more

callofdutyinfinitewarfare-header

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.
