Modern Warfare Remastered

Following earlier rumours, Activision has finally confirmed a standalone release for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, after initially exclusively bundling the re-release with the Legacy Edition of last year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

As the name suggests, the game is an overhaul of 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, incorporating a vast range of graphical upgrades, as well as a few minor audio and gameplay alterations. The new release will include the campaign and sixteen maps included in the original release of the remaster, but not the multiplayer-focused ‘Variety Map Pack’ that released earlier this year.

For the time being, the standalone version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be available exclusively on PlayStation 4, while PC and Xbox One versions will arrive at some point later this year.  The remaster will release on June 27, 2017 and retail for USD$39.99. The price point has already attracted considerable criticism due to the comparison to the current price of the aforementioned special edition of Infinite Warfare, as well as the lack of included DLC.

Meanwhile, Activision also has another Call of Duty title releasing later this year. Call of Duty: WWII will return the series to its roots in the historical settings of the Second World War, and will do away with the futuristic tropes of recent entries, such as double-jumping, wall-running, and automatic health regeneration. The game will revisit some of the most iconic battles of the war, including the Normandy Beach landing, the Battle of the Bulge, and the liberation of Paris.

Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled for release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 3, 2017.
