We have had a lot of announcements drop about Call of Duty today. One of the most exciting is that we will be getting an incredible HD remaster of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare alongside this year’s new game, Infinite Warfare! The remaster will ship out as a digital download to gamers who order the Legacy Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition of Infinite Warfare.
Surprisingly, Infinity Ward will not be handling the development of the remaster. Instead, that task has been given over to Raven Software, with Infinity Ward acting as executive producers. The remaster will include the entire single player campaign along with 10 multiplayer maps.
“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered boasts vibrant current generation visuals, with fully improved texture resolution and detail, high-dynamic range lighting, lit and shadowing VFX particles, revamped animation and audio, stunning sound and much more.”
Jump to 2:59 in the Infinite Warfare reveal trailer below and you will see a preview of the remastered Modern Warfare:
“Fans will relive the full, iconic campaign as they’re transported around the globe with Capt. Price, Gaz and Soap across all the missions from the original game, including “All Ghillied Up,” “Charlie Don’t Surf,” and “Crew Expendable.” Players will also experience the online multiplayer mode that redefined Call of Duty by introducing killstreaks, XP, Prestige and more, and battle head-to-head in 10 fan-favorite maps from the original multiplayer mode, including classics such as “Crash,” “Backlot” and “Crossfire.”
Speaking on the remaster, Raven Software boss Brian Raffel stated, “The original Modern Warfare raised the bar on video games and forever will be remembered as one of the best. It’s an honour to be developing the remaster and we are committed to faithfully remastering this classic for Call of Duty fans.”
Seriously, this is in many ways just as exciting as the reveal of Infinite Warfare. Infinite Warfare is already available for pre-order. Secure your copy today and you’ll get to play Infinite Warfare and the remaster of Modern Warfare the day they are released!
