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.

Have You Played… Quake IV?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

This is one of those HYPs where it’s very much a question rather than a recommendation. Have you played it? Particularly, have you played it recently? It felt like such a disappointment at the time, but that was a time when we craved a ‘proper’ id game (even though id weren’t making it) and the first new singleplayer Quake in almost a decade. To be given something so damned ordinary was crushing, especially so hot on the heels of the dispiriting Doom 3.

Have You Played… Soldier Of Fortune 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Have I played Soldier of Fortune 2? To be honest, I don’t think I lasted longer than the first mission in the full game’s singleplayer campaign. But the demo! The demo and its capture-the-suitcase multiplayer mode and a level set in Matrix-aping high-rise offices and rooftops – I played that for dozens of hours.

Call Of Duty Online Is More Call Of Duty Than Call Of Duty

Word of warning: you probably cannot (easily) access Call of Duty Online. It’s a free-to-play extension of Activision’s cash cow that lays golden eggs, and it’s tailor-made for Chinese markets. That said, I simply must share this trailer with you, because it’s the most Call-of-Duty related Call of Duty thing I’ve seen in a long time. Two words: robot zombies.

The One And Only: Singularity Out. Good?

Clearsil doesn't always work.

It comes my attention via stimulation of my optic nerve by photons that Raven’s Singularity is out. Which means you can buy it. We’re expecting a copy shortly, so will be trying to Wot-i-think-it as soon as possible. Until then, I thought it would be well inside the friendly RPS tradition to create a post to show you a relatively recent trailer and provide a place to talk about your experiences. That is, your experiences with Singularity. Not generally speaking, though I dare say that prohibition isn’t going to stop you.

Singularity: Actually This Year


No, the game, not the bizarre nerd rapture. And anyway, it’s a manshooter news day, alright. Raven’s time-bending shooter, Singularity – which I maintain should have been called TIME GLOVE! – is actually being released in 2010. In fact, we can be more precise still: it’s coming out on June 29th. And there’s a new trailer, which is around here somewhere… Blimey, it actually looks moderately interesting. Some of the time-based transformations are pretty impressive and… well, if Raven can make a full game out of them then we might just be in for a treat. Also, I want to fight people by making them old.
