Could this year be any bigger? Not only are we launching out on a bold and exciting direction for the franchise with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare but, with help from our good friends at Raven Software, we’re releasing a lovingly, painstakingly remastered version of our studio’s classic game in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. It’s a fantastic year to be a gamer and even better year to be, or become, a Call of Duty player.
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.
Attention all zombies dudes and dudettes: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s ‘Zombies in Spaceland’ has officially been revealed, and it’s nothing short of radical. The all-new undead survival co-op mode launching with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is set in the ‘80s, where you’ll play in a space-themed amusement park full of games, rides, and of course a cadre of deadly zombies.
As a long-time fan of the Call of Duty Zombies series, I’m dying to get my mitts on Descent, the third Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC pack launching tomorrow on PS4. Based on what we’ve seen so far, Treyarch is going gonzo with the latest addition to the Zombies saga in a new chapter called Gorod Krovi.
At last week’s PlayStation E3 Press Conference, Activision unveiled the latest footage of forthcoming shooter Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Blasting through Earth’s atmosphere, the new gameplay reveal shed some more light on developer Infinity Ward’s bold new direction for the franchise.
