Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered - Watch Full Crew Expendable Mission


Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has a new video showing off the game's snazzy makeover. To the casual viewer you are seeing bits of Crew Expendable, the second mission from the game wherein yer man Soap MacTavish is going on a cruise sent to retrieve a package from an Estonian freighter.

More technically-focused watchers will note "next generation textures, physically based rendering high-dynamic range lighting and much more to bring a new generation experience to fans".

I'm watching it with a comparison video running on my second monitor:

And here is a gif comparison so you can see the flourishes the team have added - things like the tarpaulins whipping in the wind and the rain effects and things. The old version is this one:

And here's the remaster:

It's so strange, actually. Watching the original footage and then the remaster is almost like going from a perfectly functional fairy cake to one of those monstrously fancy bakery cupcakes. It's so pretty but fresh from the pared down version it can feel super full-on. Is that just me? That might be just me. Mostly I think the problem here is that I'd quite like a cake but I'm not in the mood for icing and that is bleeding over into videogame trailer watching.

As a reminder, Modern Warfare Remastered is bundled in with Legacy, Legacy Pro and Digital Deluxe editions of Infinite Warfare [official site] so it's an incentive/reward for picking up NuCoD rather than a standalone product.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is nearly ten years old.

God, I feel ancient.
