Following plenty of leaks and teases, Activision and Infinity Ward officially announced today that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is releasing on November 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Taking the franchise “beyond the reaches of Earth into the vast expanse of our solar system,” here’s what to expect from Infinte Warfare:
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare puts storytelling front and center in a rich, immersive narrative. Infinity Ward breaks new ground by exploring the weight of leadership and its responsibilities. In a desperate time of overwhelming adversity, the player, as Captain of their own warship, must take command against a relentless enemy. Experienced soldiers are thrust into extraordinary circumstances that will test their training and reveal their true character as they learn to lead and to make the hard decisions necessary to achieve victory. The game also introduces stunning, never before seen environments, new weaponry, and inventive player abilities to Call of Duty. The entire campaign – from boots-on-ground combat to piloting high speed space-fighters – occurs as a near seamless experience with few visible loading times, and delivers the hallmark, blockbuster franchise moments that fans love.
In addition to the $59.99 USD standard edition, Infinite Warfare will be available in three special editions, all of which include Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered:
- Legacy Edition and Digital Legacy Edition ($79.99 USD) – Includes both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.
- Digital Deluxe Edition ($99.99 USD) – Includes Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Season Pass.
- Legacy Pro Edition ($119.99 USD) – Includes Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, Season Pass, collectible Steelbook, official game soundtrack and additional digital items.
Activision didn’t offer further details on the Season Pass.
Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg talked about Infinite Warfare:
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.
Infinity Ward Studio Head Dave Stohl added:
With Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, we are taking Call of Duty to places fans have never experienced in the series. On one hand, this game is the kind of gritty, boots on the ground, visceral war story that Call of Duty is known for. On the other, its future setting takes players on a journey of epic scale and proportions, providing incredible gameplay innovations and new experiences for our fans. This is a grand scale, old-school, all-out war in an epic new-school setting. And it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun.
