Activision, just as expected, also announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered alongside the official reveal of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Modern Warfare is undoubtedly the most beloved title in the entire series and it’’s getting a total overhaul, with improved visuals, the full single-player campaign, and packing in a total of 10 multiplayer maps. The catch? The only way you can buy Modern Warfare Remastered is bundled in with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Legacy Edition - a snip at just $79.99.
To clarify - there will no way possible to buy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered on its own. The only way is to buy the Legacy Edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Clearly trading on the cache of nostalgia some fans will have, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered comes with 10 of the classic multiplayer maps, with Crash, Backlot and Crossfire already confirmed.
The wording in the press release it a little side-steppy on what platforms this remaster is coming to as well. It says “Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is being remastered for current generation consoles”, indicating it won’t be on PC, but I’ve reached out to Activision for comment.
“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is one of the most beloved games of all-time, reborn for a new generation,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision, in a textbook PR statement. “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."
Last week we had a quick poll while the COD4 Remaster rumours were in full swing, and a massive majority of you wanted COD4: Modern Warfare Remastered compared to a brand new game in the shape of Infinite Warfare. In fact, it was a massive ratio of 8:1 in favour of the Remaster. How then, do you feel about having to purchase a special edition of Infinite Warfare in order to gain access?
