Well, here it is. The official unveiling of the next Call of Duty title, Infinite Warfare. Infinity Ward are back at the helm this time round and today, Activision have released the official reveal trailer to what is the developer’s follow-up to 2013’s Ghosts. As is usually the case, there isn’t much to decipher details-wise aside from confirmation that Infinite Warfare will indeed continue the series’ future warfare aesthetic — this time jumping a little further into the future with what appears to be a single-player campaign set in space and even on the occasional planet/moon that isn’t our own.
But perhaps the biggest news to come out of all this is the confirmation of a remaster of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, teased towards the end of the trailer with what looks like a current-gen graphical enhancement showing off glimpses of the game’s first campaign mission. As is specified, those who pre-order either the Legacy Edition ($79.99), Digital Deluxe Edition ($99.99, includes Season Pass) or Legacy Pro Edition ($119, Season Pass, Steelbook, soundtrack, digital items) will receive Modern Warfare bundled in (of which the game includes both the single-player campaign and ten multiplayer maps — including Crash, Backlot and Crossfire) with Infinite Warfare. There’s been no confirmation on a stand-alone edition or whether this remaster is strictly limited to such editions or not. In a press release, Activision have stated Infinite Warfare “introduces stunning, never before seen environments, new weaponry and inventive player abilities to Call of Duty.”
“We are taking Call of Duty to places fans have never experienced in the series,” Dave Stohl, head of Infinity Ward continues. “On one hand, this game is the kind of gritty, boots on the ground, visceral war story that Call of Duty is known for. On the other, its future setting takes players on a journey of epic scale and proportions, providing incredible gameplay innovations and new experiences for our fans. This is a grand scale, old-school, all-out war in an epic new-school setting. And it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun.”
So far, Infinite Warfare has been confirmed for PS4, Xbox One & PC; it’s unclear if Activision will continue to support previous-generation consoles via an Xbox 360 and PS3 iteration. But the biggest question surrounding Infinity Ward’s next venture remains unanswered: will there be dogs? Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare arrives November 4.
