Looks like Activision and Infinity Ward have found a way to please gamers who want both the nostalgic COD experience and some fresh innovation by releasing both Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered at the same time this November (the latter available with the ‘Legacy Edition’ of Infinite Warfare).

It looks as though the game takes place in the far future where you, “fight against the Settlement Defence Front to defend our very way of life.”
Here’s a blurb from the official press release:
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare puts storytelling front and centre in a rich, immersive narrative. Infinity Ward breaks new ground by exploring the weight of leadership and its responsibilities. In a desperate time of overwhelming adversity, the player, as Captain of their own warship, must take command against a relentless enemy. Experienced soldiers are thrust into extraordinary circumstances that will test their training and reveal their true character as they learn to lead and to make the hard decisions necessary to achieve victory. The game also introduces stunning, never before seen environments, new weaponry, and inventive player abilities to Call of Duty. The entire campaign – from boots-on-ground combat to piloting high speed space-fighters – occurs as a near seamless experience with few visible loading times, and delivers the hallmark, blockbuster franchise moments that fans love.
For online action, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare promises to strike with maximum impact in a world where every second counts as it delivers the future of warfare. The game’s Multiplayer mode features an evolution of Call of Duty’s movement system with an emphasis on front-line engagement. Additionally, Infinite Warfare will introduce an original cooperative Zombies mode that takes players on a wild ride through a new storyline with unique gameplay features and mechanics. More details about multiplayer and the new zombies experience will be announced at a later date.
And here’s the teaser trailer:
Been a while since I picked up a COD game but this one might just be worth checking out. MW2 and BO1 were the bollocks but I wasn’t so keen on the ones that followed. Here’s hoping this is a return to form.
Even if it’s not, at least we’ve got Cyberpunk 2077 to look forward to. It’s set to blow GTA V right out of the water.
