Alongside today’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered announcements, Activision is releasing over a dozen screenshots.
Let’s mark down May 2nd as the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare extravaganza. Revealing the game hardly covers the scope of the marketing explosion which Activision and Infinity Ward dropped on Call of Duty fans today. Not only was there an extended trailer with gameplay and cinematics, handily leaked a few hours early, but also there were reveals regarding the return of co-op Zombies, interstellar multiplayer maps, and a little thing called Modern Warfare Remastered. Compared to everything else, this may be a bit boring, but how about some screenshots?
After the hype of the trailer and Infinity Ward’s livestream had died down a bit, Activision forwarded out some additional assets — a fact sheet, logos, box art, and a bevy of high quality screenshots. Those screenshots are worth taking a look at. There are seven taken from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and four additional screenshots from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.
The fidelity of the screenshots is very impressive, though of course they’re being provided at a much larger resolution than players will experience in-game. The important bits are the various details regarding specific content in each screenshot. The soldiers’ armor, the spaceships, and the locations are of particular interest, meeting somewhere between Advanced Warfare‘s near-future grounded technology and the space travel of the years beyond.
On Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered‘s side, there are entirely other interesting aspects of the game to be considered. While character models have certainly been upgraded to run in the latest Call of Duty engine, much of the setting has only been given a solid spit polishing.
Also exciting is how Modern Warfare has been updated to seem more, well, modern. For instance in the trailer we see CRT monitors have been changed to flat-screen monitors. Let’s hope there’s no community outcry about how the game’s been changed so “dramatically.”
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be available starting November 4 for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will only be available as a pack-in with Infinite Warfare — it won’t be available on its own at retail. Pricing for the base Infinite Warfare game starts at $59.99 and the Modern Warfare Remastered bundles start at $79.99, with more expensive options for collectors above that.
