In related news, developer Infinity Ward Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki has been discussing Infinite Warfare‘s single-player campaign, one rooted in a far-future setting. Specifically, Kurosaki has revealed some of the creative inspirations behind the shooter’s story, revealing that the studio looked to modern classics such as Black Hawk Down and Saving Private Ryan during development.

With war stories, in particular, we looked at everything from Steven Pressfield’s Gates of Fire, which talks about the Spartan warriors at the gates of Thermopylae. They’re soldiers. They’re human soldiers fighting a human enemy and they’re relatable. For war, we looked at everything from that to Black Hawk Down, to Saving Private Ryan. In terms of in things that take place more in the science fiction setting, it was really looking at production design. I’m a big fan of James Cameron, who has a really interesting way of combining the familiar and the unfamiliar. When you combine those in an effective way, it grounds your whole universe and makes it more believable, more relatable.

Call of Duty occupies a universe that doesn’t have monsters or aliens or giant blue people. We are in a plausible future where it’s a human versus human conflict, same as what it would be on Earth. But one of the things Cameron does is that he knows that he’s going into unfamiliar worlds, so he brings the familiar with him. What you have in Aliens and in Avatar are these heavy, tactile components. You have cockpits that are made of glass and steel and have heavy switches, you have helmets that look like they’re more from the Vietnam era than they are from some imagined, science fiction world.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is available now on PS4. Tell us, do you plan on indulging in some Call of Duty Points?
