Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is getting a standalone release…tomorrow

2 min read


Last Year, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s special Legacy Edition of the game came bundled with one of the very best remasters in recent memory. Ravensoft lovingly remastered what is arguably one of the best and most loved Call of Duty games, Modern Warfare. It really is an incredible update, bringing the game very much into the current generation.

That move, however, of bundling it with the expensive version of a game that few people seemed to care about angered long-time fans. Many wanted to be able to buy Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone game, eschewing the space-time combat from Infinity Ward’s latest game. And it’s finally happening.

Activision confirmed the impending release this weekend, after a maelstrom of leaks that outed the remade game’s standalone retail release.

It’s coming…tomorrow! From June 27, you’ll be able to buy, download and play the game on PlayStation 4. It’ll also be getting a boxed retail release, though we’re unsure if that’ll be available locally. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be $39.99. That, unfortunately, is without any of the game’s DLC.

“One of the most critically-acclaimed Campaigns in video game history. Multiplayer that redefined the FPS genre. Experience both in stunning high definition, remastered for a new gaming generation.”

Here’s its launch trailer, followed by Gavin getting shot in the face.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Thought it would have been cheaper, close to CS:GO price, but what can you do. At least it’s finally happening!

  • way to screw everyone who bought the super expensive Infinite loser edition to get this.

    GG Activision. You officially have stooped to ultra lows.

    • nope this is sorta standard practice. HOWEVER they are still selling the remastered DLC seperate at a higher price than the original DLC.

      To put it in perspective Bioshock remastered cost 0 if you owned the original AND it had all the DLC.

      Even State of Decay YOSE had all the DLC packed in for free (the remaster did cost money though even if you owened the original.

      • I hate how publishers try screw their customers all the time.

  • Yay, screw activision

  • Finaly the comments section is fixed.

    CoD sucks! paid remastered DLC sucks.

    Blizzard/Activision prices are stupid.

    Anything I missed?

    Oh Destiny 2 no dedicated servers can GTFO.

      I was gonna rant more, but I’m getting Destiny 2, because I really liked the first one even though it had it’s faults, so I can’t really contribute :/

      • I want to get it on PC, only thing now putting me off is the no dedicated servers

      • Standard Edition R1000 on PC … R800 maybe but R1000 …. not sure about that one.

  • Hammersteyn

    I’m buying this, just to mess with Activision and the people that bought IW.

    That poor cow …

  • What I can’t seem to find any info on is can the existing version now be played without Infinite Warfare’s disk?

    • Most likely only if you buy it again as a separate package.

      This was meant to be a joke but somehow I got chills while typing it.

    • Hammersteyn

      I hope you can, I really, really do.

  • MonsterCheddar

    Why only PS4 though?

    • Cause Xbox One X sucks. 😛

      4k my arse!

      • MonsterCheddar

        Me no hassa XBonks One X, me hassa Xbonks One.


        TRUE 4K!!!!!!! o/

      OH IGN… you can’t spell IGNORAMUS without IGN.

  • For the Emperor!

    Best CoD game EVER!

  • Deceased


  • $40 for a remastered game.. that seems insanely expensive to me but then again I don’t see the fascination with remastered games at all.

    MW was great when I played it, I moved on with life

  • BakedBagel


    Holy shit if they had done this from the beginning they would have made so much money
