Activision has published a massive gameplay reveal of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, showing a run-through of the entirety of its iconic Crew Expendable level. The SAS are storming a ship in the Bering Strait, and the bump up in visual quality is actually kind of remarkable. Lighting and weather effects are the most obvious beneficiaries over the original, with moody lighting, rain dripping down the visor and wind whipping across the deck of the ship.

It’s also home to some of the most unnatural player movement I’ve ever seen, clearly in the hands of some AI driven robot determined to walk as smoothly as possible.

For point of reference, here’s how the original looked. Hint - the last nine years haven’t been kind to COD4.

At the moment the official line is that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will only be available as part of special editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, so prepare to dig deep. It’s also a timed exclusive on PS4, launching a month earlier on October 5th rather than November 4th. Those days of Xbox 360’s dominance feel a long way away now.

I know you were all excited at the time of the announcement, so who's still planning to buy Infinite Warfare to scoop up COD4 Remastered?

if the game cost 25EU+MW i would definitly buy it, but nowadays games are way too expensive. I have set a limit for me: 25-35 or 15-25EU depends. I could bought rise of the tomb raider for 17 EU, but by the time i didnt had paypal..

Here is an example for an expensive game: I dont know the minimum wage/salary in your country, but each AAA game that come out and the next 1 year + is equal to 25% of my country's minimum wage...

BO3 is so far only CoD with "realistic" difficulty level where you die from one shot. In all other CoDs veteran is the hardest, where it usually takes 2-3 shots to kill you.

well in bo3 ive noticed in veteran they kill me in 1 shot. I think playing the easiest difficulty will be the most releastic one. When u shoot some1 to die actually from 1 shot. Whatever, I write the same think as you.

I know i'm alone on this but i'm actually excited about IW and the remaster. The gameplay footage for IW was great (to me). I'll buy both on release. Just have to get a core i3 6100 and a good GPU a bit less powerful than an rx480 (rx470).

Oh Activision: You forget. Lots of PC gamers are experts at the waiting game.
One day this will be a separate purchase on Steam, probably at a lower cost too. We'll be there when you cave.

Is it just me or the sound is exactly the same along with character movement?


Al i can se "remastered" is that they add little reflections. Looks like MW3 graphics :(

They stated that their goal was to keep everything except graphics as they were, including sounds, movement, gun balance etc. And as far as I can see, graphics are definitely better than in MW3, on a same level as newest CoD games currently are. Engine is old, and it shows, but still the game isn't ugly IMO.

If they changed the sounds and character movement of the game, it wouldn't have the same nostalgia effect.

yep I think this will turn out better than infinite warfare. let's wait and see if we can get our hands on a key from a site like G2A or something. even after all these years, this game's still pretty great.

It looks like they took one of the corporate executives and made them play this game.


Except for the rain, it looks really great. Too bad I'm not getting this.

No matter how good this looks, I'm not getting this if I have to buy IW. I'm pretty sure they will let us buy this separately eventually, their tactic to force you to buy IW to get this has gotten so much hate from gamers.

Cod does NOT have higher graphics quality by design choice, if they wanted they could have made graphics better than crysis 3, but then it wouldn't run well on weaker PCs and consoles.

As far as i know if the developers wanted to make a game run well on all hardware and sacrifice graphics for it, that is exactly what design choice is.

Well that is exactly why they are having lower graphics quality. Keep in mind that they are àiming for 1080p 60fps maxed out on the ps4, thus the graphics can't be really high quality. Also I just hope there is no Vram and RAM leaks like in BO3 that they still haven't fully helped.

it very much is a CoD game. All the core gameplay mechanics are in, plus some more, how can you hate that? Or are you one of those people who just care how the game looks, it's theme and setting, which btw have no attribute to the gameplay nor game flow?

I hated mw3 the most, because of terrible connection, terrible maps for the most part, terrible visibility at distance, op kill streaks and mainly because of the terrible net code a d hit detection and mouse input.
The survival is my favorite in cod games and the story was a great finisher, while the plot was the same as always and the campaign is poorly executed like every cod after bo1
