Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Heads into Halo Territory on November 4

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Heads into Halo Territory on November 4

Activision announces Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered.

Following a trailer leak on Hulu early this morning, Activision said "screw it" and announced Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered ahead of schedule. Infinite Warfare leans harder on the single-player narrative and goes even farther into the future than Advanced Warfare. Seriously, we're getting into starships, space dogfights, non-Earth environments at this point.

"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," reads the press release.

Infinite Warfare is coming on November 4, 2016 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation. The standard retail edition will cost $59.99, but Activision is also offering three special editions that come with various perks and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. Yep, Infinite Warfare developer Infinity Ward has worked with Raven Software to remaster the title that took them to the top of the heap in first-person shooters.

"One of the most critically acclaimed titles in the series, inspired by overwhelming community interest, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is being remastered for current generation consoles. Executive produced by Infinity Ward and developed by Raven, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered puts players into a modern-day action-thriller filled with the heart-stopping moments that made it one of the most critically-acclaimed games of all-time.," says the press release.

"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered boasts vibrant current generation visuals, with fully improved texture resolution and detail, high-dynamic range lighting, lit and shadowing VFX particles, revamped animation and audio, stunning sound, and much more."

There doesn't seems to be a separate SKU for players that just want Modern Warfare Remastered. You want it, you get Infinite Warfare with a $20 premium. The special editions are detailed below.

  • Legacy Edition and Digital Legacy Edition ($79.99) – Includes both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.
  • Digital Deluxe Edition ($99.99) – Includes Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Season Pass.
  • Legacy Pro Edition ($119.99) – Includes Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, Season Pass, collectible Steelbook, official game soundtrack and additional digital items.

I admit, the further into the future Call of Duty goes, the more I look forward to playing it. I understand those that dig current-era combat or even World War I or II, but I've always had my head in the clouds. Futuristic space combat or even a fantasy COD are right up my alley. Bring it, Infinity Ward.
