Video game publisher Activision officially announces that brand new gameplay for the forthcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is scheduled for E3 2016.
According to a press release, although Activision doesn’t plan to have a booth at E3 2016, the publisher does intend on showing off some freshly generated gameplay for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. While this is great news for a lot of fans of the extremely successful first-person shooter franchise, Activision didn’t share any further details as to what type of materials for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be unveiled at the event next week.
Since this announcement is basically just pre-E3 hype for all things Call of Duty, Activision has left it up to fans to speculate as to which assets of Modern Warfare Remastered will be shown. However, with the publisher having confirmed just recently that the game’s multiplayer preview takes place this September at the Call of Duty XP event, it’s safe to say that the title’s online mode won’t be a main feature of the demonstration, but it shouldn’t be ruled out entirely.
With this being the case, Activision will probably focus on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered‘s single-player campaign and hone in on the updated graphics for the FPS. Even though a lot of fans are intensely excited for its release later this year, the fact that it’s only going to be a digital download and not sold separately from Infinite Warfare—players will have to purchase the Legacy, Legacy Pro, or Digital Deluxe Edition of the futuristic shooter to get it—gamers shouldn’t expect a huge portion of the showcase to be dedicated to the remastered title.
Nevertheless, there’s always the possibility that Activision gives fans what they want by going on to release a deluge of information and potential surprises for what will be included in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. After all, relatively little is known about the title, other than the amount of maps that will be a part of the final product’s multiplayer component, as well as how the online mode will be supported with dedicated servers.
Of course, not every gaming fan is head over heels for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, especially when it comes to the way Activision is releasing the game. Certain players’ opinions harbor concerns that the publisher is botching its launch by forcing fans to purchase it in tandem with Infinite Warfare. Naturally, though, with Modern Warfare Remastered‘s availability not being until this fall, it remains to be seen whether or not its release will be a success.
