Call Of Duty 4 Remaster Only Sold With Infinite Warfare

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, the prettied-up version of Infinity Ward’s seminal shooter Call of Duty 4, will indeed only be available as a bundle-in with some of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s many premium editions. That’s what Activision say, at least. I am astonished. That can’t mean that, can they? They must have been so excited about Infinite Warfare’s spaceships and power armour that they forgot to add a little footnote with an asterisk saying “*exclusive for a limited time”. No? Sheesh. Weird!

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Announced

Activision today announced Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site], the latest in their long-running mega-hit military FPS series, and I am sorely disappointed. Firstly, today is a holiday in the UK, so I’m not even supposed to be here. Secondly, Infinite Warfare is about futurewar with spaceships and everything, not the Escherian nightmare that we were assured it would be. This ‘real’ Infinite Warfare does sound exciting, but I can only assume we were deceived as someone’s idea of a ‘joke’.

Activision also announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, a revamp of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – the game which defined the next nine years of CoD.

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.

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.

Call Of Duty 2016 Confirmed, Infinity Ward Really Proud Of Office Signage

Gosh! Is it time for the annual “Activision have confirmed Call of Duty [official site] still exists and is still getting its annual instalment” post already? But it was only just Christmas! Where does the time go?

Call Of Duty: Back To The Beginning

A very big house in the country

I am a very Modern Woman. And by that I mean I have only played Call of Duty [official site] campaigns from Modern Warfare 2 onwards. But this year, instead of picking up Black Ops 3 and despairing over the sheer number of gadgets and grenades I must remember, I went back to the very beginning (a very good place to start). I am working my way through the original Call of Duty.

Well, original-ish, it’s whatever the version of the 2003 game is on Steam right now.

I’m over halfway through the American campaign, having just taken out the German artillery at BrĂ©court Manor and couldn’t help remembering how Adam put that level as one of the best the franchise has ever managed:

Ghostpirates Ahoy! Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Next DLC Is Weird

Just a mariachi spirit nbd

Call of Duty: Ghosts seems to have rediscovered a bit of the Quake and Half-Life mod scene spirit. Hear me out, right. I know it’s all usually very po-faced and dull, but the next DLC map pack seems to throw together whatever weirdness its creators found kooky or funny or cool–as so many mods did. See, ‘Invasion’ will bring ghost pirates and mariachi revenants and I’m surprised to find CoD DLC making me nostalgic. It’s just a shame this attitude is confined to paid DLC.
