Call of Duty has literally done it all but apparently not because yet another “Call of Duty” game has been announced for the franchise. “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” was revealed today along with a trailer and a release date of November 4th.
In this new installment, the troops leave Earth and fight for the universe. Get ready for some zero gravity battles!
The game, which is being developed by Infinity Ward, immerses players in a war that “for the first time in franchise history, extends beyond the reaches of Earth into the vast expanse of our solar system.”
Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing said,
“This year, we’re both honoring the heritage of Call of Duty while taking players to incredible new heights. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a bold, new vision from the studio that created the original Call of Duty and Modern Warfare, and an adventure on an insanely epic scale that only Call of Duty could deliver. And Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is one of the most beloved games of all-time, reborn for a new generation. We have lovingly remastered it with a whole new level of graphical fidelity and realism that wasn’t possible when the original was released. It’s going to be a great year for Call of Duty players.”
The title is launching on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
Infinite Warfare has a pretty sweet single player campaign spans our solar system, taking players on a journey from on Earth to beyond its orbit. You play as Captain Reyes, a Tier 1 Special Operations pilot who helms the Retribution, one of Earth’s last remaining warships. The setting takes place in some distant future when Earth has been stripped of its natural resources and humanity has created colonies to mine planets and asteroids.
As Reyes you are going to fight against the Settlement Defense Front. Like a lot of future space games, the SDF is an insurgent group that broke away from the United Nations Space Alliance during a war of secession years ago. However, beware because the The Front is a fascist power made up of militant radicals that seek to control the colonies and its wealth.
What is most enticing about this Call of Duty game and what sets it apart from the dozens of predecessors is that gameplay makes air and space combat pivotal.
