Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Might Be A Procedurally-Generated Escherian Nightmare

Activision tend to announce each year’s Call of Duty in late April or early May, so we should be expecting the teaser trailer for the announcement for the teaser trailer for the ARG for the announcement any day now. The big surprise of 2016’s game may have been slightly ruined, as folks including that Kotaku mob saw a mysterious entry for Call of Duty: Infinite War pop up in the PlayStation Store today. It’s Infinity Ward’s turn for CoD again, so yeah, maybe that’s it. But that’s only a name, not very exciting. Only RPS can tell you what it actually factually definitely truly is. Exclusive details follow.

Who U Gonna Call? Activision Reveal New Ghostbusters

There’d have been somethin’ strange in the neighbourhood indeed had a Ghostbusters game not surfaced in concert with this year’s incoming movie. Lo and behold, the medium of cinema and videogames have crossed the streams: Activision have teamed up with Sony Pictures to announce a third-person action RPG with local co-op leanings, based on the supernatural slaying service. It’ll launch alongside this summer’s silver screen outing.

This Year, Call Of Duty May Be Heading To Space

Call of Duty: Space Wars. Orbital Ops, maybe. Post-Modern Warfare. Space Warfare? Probably not that one.

Whatever the name might be, there have been rumours and suggestions of a space-based Call of Duty for several years and it seems increasingly likely that this year’s Infinity Ward release might be that game. I hope the moon explodes in at least one mission.

Platinum’s Ninja Turtles Game Cowabungaing Into May

I was on holiday last week, so the klaxon I’ve set up alerting me to PlatinumGames news was only heard by my neighbours. In their excitement to hear more about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan [official site], they kicked in our front door and smashed the siren into a thousand tiny pieces. Bless ’em! Publishers Activision had previously said that Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising devs Platinum would launch their take on the totally tubular turtles this summer, but a new trailer last week pinned it down to an earlier release date: May 24th.

Cod Blops 3 Releases Nuketown Map For All

Call of Duty doesn’t really have time for ‘classic’ maps, given that a new game comes jumping across time and space every year (smart money says 2016’s CoD will pit World War 1 Tommies against robotic Visigoths from the future). CoD’s Black Ops subseries has run long enough to establish Nuketown as a staple – though since Blops 2 it’s been held back as a pre-order bonus. Well, now all and sundry can visit that old nuke-testing model town in Cod Blops 3 [official site], as it’s finally free to all players.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Free Multiplayer Weekend

Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Multiplayer Starter Pack is a big mouthful for a simple idea: it’s Cod Blops 3‘s [official site] ranked multiplayer sold separately as a cheaper standalone game. It’s an interesting experiment in selling CoD’s many modes separately and a short one – Activision will stop selling it on Monday. But until Sunday evening, you can check out this substantial slice of CoD for free. This handy link should fire up Steam and start installing it.

Cop A Load Of Cod In Blops 3’s Multiplayer Standalone

Activision are finally trying splitting Call of Duty’s many modes into separate games, for folks who are only interested in part or want a cheap way in, though they’ve started in a baffling way. Last night they released a standalone version of the Cod Blops 3 [official site] ranked multiplayer which costs only £11.59/14,49€/$14.99 – about a quarter of the full game’s price. I’d hoped for a standalone Zombies mode, but what’s odd about this release is the restrictions. For starters, Activision will only sell this version until the end of February.
