One of the year’s most anticipated multiplayer betas will be available starting today on PS4! We’ve worked with Infinity Ward and Activision to collect the most relevant information for your reading pleasure, below — enjoy the beta, and stay tuned for more Call of Duty news and announcements.
We’ve got a new guy joining us today fresh out of selection. His name’s Soap.
-Gaz, Modern Warfare
That new guy? It’s you. Whether you’re eager to return to the classic action or experience everything for the first time, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered on PS4 is an immersive return to what many have called one of the greatest video game campaigns in history.
Almost nine years after its release, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s influence continues to reverberate. In many ways, Modern Warfare popularized what we think of as the modern multiplayer shooter: selectable character traits, extensive weapon modifications, and an XP-based ranking system are all widely adopted standards in current multiplayer shooters.
So it was no surprise to see the widespread excitement surrounding the announcement of Modern Warfare Remastered at E3 2016. Remastered is a PS4 upgrade of the classic original game supervised by veteran studio Raven Software, with an emphasis on faithfully translating the 2007 classic into the PS4 generation.
And that experience is going to be quite faithful indeed, if my hands-on experience with Remastered’s multiplayer mode at COD XP was any indication. Before wall running, before Pick 10, before Scorestreaks and Specialists, Modern Warfare built its reputation on tight shooting mechanics and uniquely porous map designs that stood in contrast to many other popular shooters of the day.
Much has been said about Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s space-faring single-player campaign, but we haven’t gotten a good look at its multiplayer mode — arguably the bread and butter of any FPS worth its salt — until now.
Treyarch built a loyal fan base since its first Zombies outing in 2008’s Call of Duty: World At War. And it’s easy to see why — the strategic teamwork, countless secrets, and hidden lore add up to an endlessly replayable co-op gem. It’s been a favorite of mine for years.
But now, Infinity Ward is taking the concept for a spin in this November’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and the results are sure to intrigue veteran Zombies fans.
Call of Duty XP is officially underway! 32 Pro Call of Duty teams from across the globe are primed to battle it out for their share of the $2 million prize pool, and the world is ready to see the premiere of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare multiplayer and Modern Warfare Remastered multiplayer, as well as get their hands on Infinite Warfare’s Zombies in Spaceland and Black Ops 3 DLC 4 multiplayer.
