Call of Duty Infinite Warfare confirmed

Call of Duty is going interplanetary. Following the leak from last week, Activision and developers Infinity Ward have confirmed Infinite Warfare with a stunning, lengthy and explosive trailer that sets the scene for a war that has no boundaries. Where Earth was the stage before, Infinite Warfare is going well beyond that.

You can see it all unravel below, in the games debut trailer which is preceding a gameplay stream happening later tonight. Seems as though your protagonist (who by the looks of it is a female lead this time) is part of a force defending Earth from an attack no one expected. There’s whiffs of interstellar colonisation here, suggesting that one of the forces in charge of breaking ground on new planets isn’t taking kindly to their kind anymore.

So basically Killzone. Or something like that.

So yes, we’re finally going to be fighting in space. There’s a  new grappling hook gadget allowing you to rope in enemies from afar and a companion robot seemingly helping you along the way too. The space battles in particular look gorgeous, but it’s definitely Call of Duty from the exterior. I’m sure many are dying to see how some of these changes permeate through to the multi0player, and I suspect a lot of that is going to be shown off a little later.

But the real kicker is at the end. Confirmed as an additional bonus with the Legacy Edition of the game, Infinite Warfare will be shipping with a remastered version of the Infinity Ward title that stated it all: Modern Warfare. It’s my personal favourite in the Call of Duty series, and arguably the one that put the series on the global map. So revisiting some of the most memorable battles the franchise has offered yet has me quite excited.

Expect Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to be making lots of noise from now on, until it releases this November.

    ugh, the temptation is real…
    but i said i wouldnt buy another game after Ghosts turned out so shit.
    Then i bought advanced warfare and regretted it…

    the temptation is always real with CoD…
    even though i know the matchmaking quirks will still be there in their new games, and waiting for it to come out on a steam sale isnt realistic as no one will still be playing it by the time that happens, because theyll all have gone back to playing CS:GO and even then it will still be R500+
    and i know the performance will be meh, even on a decent PC and dropping settings will only give a negligible performance increase.

    I swear if they sold MW: Remastered separately they’ll make more cash on that than Infinite Warfare…

      yeah, including it like DLC is pretty backwards.
      Curious to see if they’ll only include it in the bundle, to maximize Infinite warfare sales, or if they’ll go full cash grab and sell it separately for 60$

        Hopefully the remaster isn’t just the SP…. The MP of MW was really probably the best MP they released in the CoD series for me. And if they do remaster the MP, that would mean there will be servers going up again that will be fully populated (Probably more than Infinate warfare XD)…. Friggen Dedicated servers and LAN again! When last was there a proper LAN function on a CoD game.

          Dedicated servers *drool*
          100% on the MP, Id be so down to get nostalgic and go back to the days when i was enthusiastic enough to try the whole clan and competitive stuff and things
