For the past few days, rumors have been swirling around this year's new Call of Duty and Activision finally makes it official today. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is Infinity Ward back at the helm with a new storyline because thank goodness they're not continuing the lackluster Ghosts plot. Plus, also official is Modern Warfare Remastered, a remaster of arguably the installment that changed the first shooter landscape the past decade that is only going to be packaged with the $80 Legacy Edition and the more expensive Legacy Pro Edition. The trailer for both games can be seen below.
Yes, Call of Duty is finally going into space after an invasion by the Settlement Defense Front. From the trailer, we see a team leave Earth after a few missions, spaceship dogfights and also taking on the opposition at other planets. As always with these new reveals, multiplayer will be detailed at a later date since only the campaign was shown. However, GameSpot did say that zombies is coming to Infinite Warfare and after Treyarch's latest attempt, I'm curious how Infinity Ward can top that if that is true.
Modern Warfare Remastered is indeed happening after all the rumors the past week. Raven Software is handling the remaster under executive production by Infinity Ward. The whole campaign featuring Captain Price and Soap will be there, but only ten fan favorite multiplayer maps will be in this package. Fans so far are not liking the fact that ten multiplayer maps are making the cut because of their memories of the 2007 original being such a game changer for first-person shooters at the time. Plus Activision hasn't said that this remaster will be out on it's own later on because well they gotta sell those Legacy Editions somehow.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare comes out on November 4th for the Playstation 4, Xbox One & PC. Activision will be streaming on Twitch later today sharing more details about this year's game and Modern Warfare Remastered, which is only packaged in the Legacy Editions.
