Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Is Free From Its Infinite Warfare Prison

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Is Free From Its Infinite Warfare Prison

The remastered Modern Warfare is finally getting a standalone release.

The remastered edition of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, a polished version of arguably the best Call of Duty in existence, has technically been around for awhile now, but it was trapped in the confines of another game purchase. Modern Warfare Remastered was only available bundled alongside Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, in its Digital Deluxe, Legacy, and Legacy Pro editions.

In a way, the promise of the remastered Modern Warfare was bundled to entice more purchases of Call of Duty, a series whose latest releases have significantly tanked in terms of its sales.

At last, Modern Warfare is seeing a standalone release. On June 27 for PlayStation 4, with Xbox One and PC versions coming later, Modern Warfare Remastered will be released for $39.99. The nearly $40 pack will not include the Modern Warfare Remastered Variety Map Pack, which is available separately for $14.99.

To commemorate the launch (or rather, re-launch) of Modern Warfare, Activision is hosting a five-week "community celebration," offering XP events, in-game giveaways, and more. You can return to Modern Warfare in its shiniest version yet, when the game launches standalone on PS4 on June 27 for $39.99. The next major installment, Call of Duty WW2, will release on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
