Despite the previous dabbles with co-op in the campaign mode within the series, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be single player only.
Speaking with VideoGamer, Activision has confirmed that Infinite Warfare’s campaign will not support co-op. Instead the cooperative experience will be limited to the latest form of the series hallmark Zombies mode.
The campaign has been described by Activision on their blogs as a “character-driven campaign that will span Earth and beyond our atmosphere.” It promises to include piloting a jet-fighter on Earth and in space as well as including zero-gravity infantry combat. There will also be a central hub ship where the player can launch raids on enemy ships and begin story missions. If these raids will work as single-player side missions or as a separate mode involving PvP (akin to Metal Gear Solid 5’s FOB mode) is unknown.
On a technical side, it has been promised that changing between fighting on the ground, in ships and returning or leaving the central hub ship will have “few visible loading times”.
The story will task you as Captain Reyes, a special operations pilot who gains control over the central hub ship (called The Retribution) after a surprise attack on Earth’s fleet by a fantatical enemy called the Settlement Defence Force. You must then repel the foe by force with firepower on and outside of Earth.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be coming to PC, Xbox One and PS4 on the 4th of November in standard, Legacy Edition (with CoD: Modern Warfare Remastered), Digital Deluxe (same as Legacy but with a season pass) and Legacy Pro Edition (same as Digital Deluxe, with a steelbook, soundtrack and additional digital items) forms.
