Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered standalone release coming

Love a duck and stone the crows, Activision are finally going to sell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered [official site] seperately. Because they’re a gaggle of silly sausages, they originally launched the revamped version of 2007’s wildly popular Call of Duty 4 only as a bonus included in expensive editions of the wildly unpopular Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Seven months later, Activision have announced they’re putting an end to this foolishness and releasing Modern Warfare Remastered separately. Oh, but it’s never that simple. The June 27th release date announced today is only for PlayStation 4, with other platforms to follow. What are you like! The silliest sausages. Read the rest of this entry »

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare hosts free MP weekend

With Call of Duty headed back to the oh-so-familiar battlefields of World War 2 later this year, I’ll be sorry to see some of its ludicrous sci-fi bits go. If you’ve not played CoD in a while but do fancy seeing the apogee of its sci-fi silliness, you can check it out this weekend in a free multiplayer trial of 2016’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site]. That’s the one which goes to space, remember?

This and other CoD games are half-price on Steam this weekend too, though they’re still too expensive for me to buy old ones just for the rollercoaster campaigns. Read the rest of this entry »

Call of Duty is unlikely to get WWII “right”

“Those who do not learn from from history, are doomed to make another World War II videogame.” A famous saying, and one we all know well. So when Activision hosted a live presentation for the reveal trailer of their latest shooter, Call of Duty: WWII [official site], I watched and felt nothing but a tired wave of low-burning resentment for everyone involved. During this presentation the word “visceral” was said a total of eight times and our own news editor Alice silently got up from her desk, walked solemnly out of her house, and never returned. If anyone has seen Alice, please call us. Read the rest of this entry »

Activision plan for ‘many years’ of Call of Duty movies

Activision Blizzard Studios are planning for potentially years of Call of Duty movies, drawing inspiration from the interwoven Marvel Cinematic Universe. Activision reckon that Call of Duty could carry a series, jumping between the first-person shooter’s sub-brands for different perspectives on war. Chinny reckon. Read the rest of this entry »

Rumour! Call of Duty: WW2 is real, and a real bad name

Rumours of Call of Duty’s return to World War 2 have circulated since, well, since Activision’s mega-hit FPS series left it almost a decade ago. This time it’s really for really real, folks including our chums at Eurogamer say. Whispers, rumours, and supposedly leaked artwork say this year’s game will bear the rubbish name Call of Duty: WWII. Presumably this would mean a sad farewell to the wall-running and double-jumping of futureCoDs but the welcome return of the M1 Garand rifle’s ping, the loveliest sound in all murderdom.

That’s Sabotage! First CoD: Infinite Warfare DLC hits PC

I can’t stand it, I know they planned it: the first DLC for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] has arrived on PC, one month after its PlayStation debut. Activision are scheming on an exclusivity deal – that’s sabotage. As is the first DLC. ‘Sabotage’ is its name and new maps is it game. It’s the standard CoD DLC deal: four regular multiplayer maps and one new map for the co-op Zombies mode. And as ever, Zombies is where CoD devs get to lark about, this time visiting a zombified rave in a redwood forest in the ’90s, with guest star Kevin Smith. Really. Look: Read the rest of this entry »

The 10 most intriguing PC gaming trends of 2016

As December approaches like a runaway sled and we prepare to say our goodbyes to 2016, it’s natural to reflect on the year as a whole. Those reflections could easily take the form of laments but we’re keeping our focus firmly on the world of PC games, where we’ve identified ten trends that may not have defined 2016, but have certainly helped to shape it. We delve into Sorcery and synthwave, DOOM and Danganronpa, and much more besides.
