Rumor: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare remaster to include single player campaign and 10 multiplayer maps

The people wanted it, so the people got it. Call of Duty 4 will be remastered, but Activision didn't say what the remastered version would include, some new rumors about what the game will include have begun surfacing.

The remastered version of Call of duty 4: Modern Warfare was "confirmed" yesterday by Activision, but they did not say anything on what the game would include. 

Today, the people on NeoGaf spotted a marketing image for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare had surfaced online which included some information about the Modern Warfare remaster. Apparently the remaster will include the full single player campaign as well as ten multiplayer maps

The leaked image (shown above) also showed that the next Call of Duty will be released in two editions; the Standard which will only include the new game and a Legacy edition which will include both the new and the old game.

Remember: this is still just a rumor and Activision has not expressively announced Infinite Warfare yet, nor have they released any official information on what the remaster will include,

Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare remaster confirmed by Activison via Emoji

Activision and Infinity Ward have been planning a new Call of Duty game for a while now and it looks like their plans have been revealed. A number of rumors circulating the game were revealed this week, including its title, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, as well as the fact that the game will ship with a copy of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare remastered.

While these have all been considered 'leaks,' Activision has all but confirmed it with a blazing neon sign that reads, "YES."

The official Call of Duty account responded to an excited Twitter user, essentially confirming the fact that the leaks were true.

Whether or not the Modern Warfare Trilogy that appeared on Amazon is real has not been confirmed.

Battlefield Media Director calls Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer 'quaint'

Don't get angry, it's just a joke…kinda. Senior Video & Media Director Roland Smedberg fired a playful little salvo in the direction of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare over the Reveal Trailer that launched today. 

What followed was a series of tweets with fans that took shots at the game's use of depth of field and lighting as well as a hint of something to come this Friday.

Apparently a lot of people took offense to the tweets (naturally), and they have since been removed from the account. Smedberg later clarified that his shots were "all in good fun".

Here's how Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered compares to the original

We recently got a look at the official trailer for the upcoming addition to the Call of Duty series, Infinite Warfare, and with it, we got a look at the Modern Warfare remaster. Regardless of how new the trailer is, someone has already made a video comparing the remastered footage we saw to the original game.

It appears as though the remastered scenes are quite the upgrade from the original.

Modern Warfare Remastered will include the full campaign from the original, as well as 10 multiplayer maps. Of the ten, 'Crash,' 'Backlot,' and 'Crossfire' will be included. The game will be included in each of the Special Editions for Infinite Warfare. Whether or not the remastered game will release as a standalone purchase in the future is unknown.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is set to release on November 4 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Rumor: Call of Duty Modern Warfare Trilogy appears on Amazon in the UK

If I had to guess, this is probably fake, but it is worth mentioning. A listing for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare trilogy has appeared on Amazon.com in the UK as well as in Japan. However, there are a few oddities about the listing. Just check out the image below.

For starters, "Call Duty" is not a game and would be quite an oversight of a typo for a company like Activision. Secondly, why would Activision need an alternative account, Activision Classics, to sell the product, and not their main account? Thirdly, if you search Activision on Amazon, you will find that there are multiple accounts with the word "Activision" in it. 

Activision, Activision Classics, Activision Blizzard and ACTIVISION are four of the top names that come back on the search. But why would a juggernaut company like Activision need that many accounts to sell their products? I find it highly unlikely that their sales department is just that incompetent at remembering a single password, so these are likely third party accounts.

On the other hand, is it possible that this is the reason we have yet to get any Call of Duty game on Backwards Compatibility for Xbox One? Maybe. It was recently leaked that a remastered version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare would be coming with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

By now it's a cliche, but pour as much salt on this as you can find. It's likely false.

March 2016's top 10 sales include The Division, Zelda and Far Cry: Primal; No Street Fighter 5

The NPD Group has released information on the top selling games of March 2016 and it's a bit surprising. Whether it's considering how low Call of Duty is on the list, the fact that Grand Theft Auto 5 is still in the top five or the sudden appearance of Nintendo – March was unique.

Seeing The Division at the top of the list isn't much of a surprise. The game was reported to be shattering Ubisoft's sales records, giving Ubisoft the biggest first quarter launch ever in the UK. What is suprising is the lack of the generally well-received Street Fighter 5, which launched on February 16th (amidst some controversy over a missing butt-slap) and the addition of two Nintendo games.

Nintendo doesn't typically find themselves in the top 10 sales list, but when they do it's in multiples (like this time) or they are near the top.

It is important to note that the NPD sales report only gathers data from physical retailers. Digital game sales are not included in the following list. 

Software:

  1. Tom Clancy's The Division (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  2. Far Cry: Primal (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  3. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD (Wii U)
  4. Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC)
  5. UFC 2 (PS4, Xbox One)
  6. MLB 16: The Show (PS4, PS3)
  7. Pokken Tournament (Wii U)
  8. NBA 2K16 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PSe)
  9. Call of Duty: Black Ops III (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)
  10. Minecraft (360, PS4, Xbox One, PS3)

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Vehicle Combat isn't a tacked on mechanic

Today has been a busy day for Call of Duty news with the annoucement of Infinite Warfare, a remaster of Call of Duty 4, and much much more. I am here to give you even more news that is sure to excite you for Infinite Warfare, especially if you love Top Gun or dog-fighting in video games.

In an interview with IGN, Design Director on Infinite Warfare, Jacob Minkoff discussed how much of a part air combat will play in the game, and don't you worry this isn't some throwaway mission vehicle section. The "Jackal" as it's being referred to is a fully customizable tool with multiple variations on movement and speed that players can use at certain sections in the game "[The Jackal] can transform between atmospheric flight mode and zero-G flight mode for when you have to dogfight in the vacuum of space,"

Minkoff noted that this is a piece of equipment people will care about and not some sort of gimick, it's almost a character of its own. "It's kind of the Top Gun fantasy," he explained, noting that "it's your fighter that you get to upgrade and customize. You get to walk along the flight deck and have the flight crew preparing it for you and saluting you and you get into it and you fly out into these crazy missions that you chose to go to."

Minkoff also wanted to stress that the vehicle is seamlessly woven into gameplay and not a vehicle section placed in levels in order to meet some quota or tick a box off.

"You can be boots on ground, fighting through the streets of a city on earth, call down your Jackal, get into it, fly up through the atmosphere, engage in a dogfight over the orbit of earth, finish that dogfight, land on the deck of the carrier, get into the carrier, go up to the bridge, and order your ship to go to the next mission and all of it happens seamlessly with no loading screens."

Minkoff said that the Jackal won't take away from the core gameplay Call of Duty is known for, the fast paced, personal gunplay.

"Call of Duty is about having a gun in your hand, ducking behind cover, and shooting guys. And that is going to be the primary loop that you engage in through the majority of the game."

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare releases on November 4th, 2016 with a fully Remastered Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare bundled exclusively for collectors edition owners.

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 'Eclipse' expansion detailed

 

Earlier today, Activision and Treyarch announced their second expansion pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 — Eclipse.

 

Eclipse will feature four new multiplayer maps Spire, Rift, Knockout, and Verge plus one new zombies map titled Zetsubou No Shima. The second expansion will release on April 19 for PlayStation 4 costing $14.99, before heading to Xbox One or PC.

 

Unfortunately, there was no announcement of the DLC pack heading to last gen consoles, despite the recent news of Awakening heading to PS3 next week.

 

 Check out the full details of the maps down below:

 

  • Spire: Spire takes Multiplayer combat to a futuristic sub-orbital airport terminal set high in the clouds. Multiple levels and open areas promote intense, mid-range combat around a clean, high-tech civilian environment. Watch your step, because one wrong move could send you plummeting back through the stratosphere.
  • Rift: Head to the core of a harsh futuristic military complex, set high above an active caldera. Rift funnels and forces tight, intense engagements, where the only way through is forward. Utilise the unique core movement opportunities to outsmart and outplay enemies as you traverse the suspended rail system.
  • Knockout: Housed in a traditional Shaolin Temple with a retro twist, Knockout sets the stage for a bloody Kung Fu tournament. This mid-sized map showcases a sharp contrast between the mid-range engagements of the traditional exterior architecture and the tight close-quarters of an eclectic 1970’s styled interior.
  • Verge: In this re-imagination of the classic Call of Duty: World at War map, Banzai, Verge drops Multiplayer combat into the center of a distant post-apocalyptic future, where two warring factions are entrenched in constant battle. Take control of the key bridge, fortresses, tunnel systems and waterfalls as you engage in high-speed action through this medium-sized map.
  • Zetsubou No Shima is sure to satisfy. Continuing their fight to stop the zombie apocalypse, Treyarch’s Origins characters will face new threats on a World War II-era Pacific island. But don’t let looks fool you — this is no tropical paradise. Experiments with Element 115 have had horrifying effects on human, animal, and plant biology and you’ll have to fight them all. Zetsubou No Shima also introduces new transport mechanics, devastating traps, and classic Zombies side quests.

2016 is going to be a big year for Call of Duty; the franchise has been going on for a while now, long enough for Activision to start making remasters. CEO of Activision Publishing Eric Hirshberg had this to say:

 

“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.”

 

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is set to release on November 4 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
