Infinity Ward has finally officially announced the next game in the record-setting Call of Duty series. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is set to return to its roots for an epic classic battle between two armies unlike anything seen before in the series.
Infinite Warfare promises to put storytelling front and center with a rich and immersive narrative, something that has been arguably lacking in recent Call of Duty outings. Players will serve as Captains of their own warships as they face a relentless enemy, thrust into circumstances that will not only test their training as experienced soldiers but also reveal their true character. New environments, including boots-on-ground combat to piloting high speed space-fighters, new weaponry, and inventive player abilities will be coming to Infinite Warfare as well.
“With Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, we are taking Call of Duty to places fans have never experienced in the series,” said Dave Stohl, Studio Head of Infinity Ward. “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.”
Of course, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will include a Multiplayer mode, as well as an original co-op Zombies mode for a new storyline with unique gameplay features and mechanics.
In addition, the Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition will include Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered which features the full campaign and ten multiplayer maps in the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare high-definition remaster.
“This year, we’re both honoring the heritage of Call of Duty while taking players to incredible new heights,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a bold, new vision from the studio that created the original Call of Duty and Modern Warfare, and an adventure on an insanely epic scale that only Call of Duty could deliver. And Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is one of the most beloved games of all-time, reborn for a new generation. We have lovingly remastered it with a whole new level of graphical fidelity and realism that wasn’t possible when the original was released. It’s going to be a great year for Call of Duty players.”
