Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, PS4

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.

The single-player campaign of Infinite Warfare tells an old-fashioned war story with a rich cast of characters and an emotional narrative arc. We leaned into our studio’s heritage and designed some of our most epic battles in a gritty, grounded military setting ever. We wanted to land the performances so much that we built a brand new, state-of-the-art performance stage to capture our cast. We believe we landed it and created a remarkable story. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts and see your reactions online!

Of course, single player is just a part of what we developed this year. We added a ton of new features to create a multiplayer that’s uniquely suited to distinct play styles. There are layers of depth with Mission Teams, Crafting, Prototype Weapons, Combat Rigs, new equipment, new scorestreaks, and so much more. To help you get started with multiplayer, here are some pointers straight from Joe Cecot, our lead multiplayer designer:

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Multiplayer

1. Rigs are built around playstyles. The first 3 rigs unlocked are the Warfighter – Mobile Mid Ranger, the Merc – Defensive and the Synaptic – Run and Gun. Choose wisely.

2. The NV4 Assault Rifle is at its best when used at long range. Keep your distance and pick your opponents to pieces.

3. One of the first pieces of Tactical Equipment is the Personal Radar. Pop this outside of a fire fight to access on screen radar to help you locate enemy players.

4. Rigs are your Battle Suit. If your current Rig selection isn’t working you can hot swap mid match to a new Rig Payload and a new Rig Trait. Your Payload meter carries over!

5. Mission Teams are a whole new layer of progression in Infinite Warfare which allows you to unlock specific Rig Customization, Camos, Weapon Accessories, and Prototype weapons. Pay attention to your mission in the upper right. Completing missions ranks up your Mission team faster!

6. Directed Energy weapons are always moving ammo from their stock into their loaded battery. Unlock the Fusion Mag attachment to add a rechargeable battery that fill quickly without pulling from your stock.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare: Zombies in Spaceland

In addition to multiplayer, our cooperative mode, Zombies in Spaceland will delight your retro and zombie-loving soul with its fresh and radical take on a zombie apocalypse happening in a 1980s amusement park. How long before the plethora of easter eggs we put into the mode are cracked? It’ll be exciting to see! Post up your videos and hints as we believe everyone will have to work together to get the full 411.

And of course, we are fully dedicated to supporting the game post release with new updates and content. For now, let’s celebrate reaching new heights with our launch! See you online!

  • So that you have the whole weekend to play it!

  • BritishGolgo13

    They should have done Fridays a long time ago. Ain’t nobody got time to marathon games on a Tuesday night!

  • Just think of it as coming 4 days early, as opposed to 3 days later.

  • KidCommando

    I tried the beta and thought it was very underwhelming. Can’t believe how many people buy this game every year. It just felt so sterile and the environments were all so basic. Nothing about it made me come back to the beta for a second go.

    • SmokeAdellic

      I’m not 1 to normally defend Cod but this game is actually really fresh in comparison to the series also totally different than the beta in some magical way.

      P.s. Haven’t played the campaign but it’s supposedly the best to date and Zombies in Spaceland is amazeballs!

      I think @SmokeAdellic is onto something. Give it a try again! We made a lot of improvements since the beta. The beta was very helpful to see what worked and what didn’t and what our players needed!

    • Why do I get the feeling that your lying about playing the beta? Picked it up late last night and so far it has been far from basic, maybe your confusing it with one of the many sports games that look/feel/play the same each and every year. had my doubts before I picked it up, but they hit this one out of the park as far as Im concerned. Or maybe its just your normal way of putting down every gamer and game thats posted because Ive never seen you post anything but negativity…!

  • Can you please clarify on which “select retailers in the U.S. and Canada” you get Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare free if you buy a PS4 on November 4 through November 5?

    So far I only see Gamestop & Best Buy as select retailers.

    I would like Target to be included because of the 10% Wishlist Savings + 5% Red Card Savings + 15% Cartwheel Savings making a PS4 around $218 also until the 5th of November.

    I guess you are getting $81 back in your pocket with Target vs a $59.99 game but if they were included as a select retailer it would be ideal.

    • List of “select retailers” so far:

      Amazon (ASIN: B01MDP4SMA)
      Newegg (Item#: N82E16868110210)
      Best Buy (SKU: 5389000)
      Gamestop (weeklyad must not be online)

    • Walmart (Walmart #: 28G5RW0W3D9S)

  • ArchangelMike

    What we all want to know is – when can we purchase a standalone copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered?

  • SmokeAdellic

    Hate to give this company props but y’all outdid yourselves on this 1…really fun game!

    • Eric Monacelli

      Thanks for the kind words! We worked really hard to make it fun. It’s only going to get better.

    Friday is totally, like, the new Tuesday. Happy Launch day! Hope you’re enjoying it. :)

  • If I get this it’ll mainly be for Zombies, and I guess to check out COD4 Remaster… But I really hope Zombies is well supported even though this isn’t a Treyarch COD.

  • Disappointing to see there is no 4 player splitscreen for offline multiplayer on the modern warfare remaster. It was the main reason I was looking forward to it. Other than you guys did a good job on both games. Looking forward to more zombie maps.

  • charlieibbotson6

    battlfield 1 makes this game look like crap the graphics o cod never change plus you added microtransaction what is this a free mobile game or something sort your crap out and take a few years of to build on something new instead of a halo clone

  • I pre-ordered mine and never got the Terminal map

  • Et
