Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Standalone Available Next Week

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. As rumors led us to believe, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is getting a standalone release. Activision announced today that the title will release June 27 for PlayStation 4. Costing $39.99, it will be a part of the PlayStation Network’s “Days of Summer” campaign. While it’s only releasing on PS4 at the moment, other platforms will follow later.

“It’s been an honor to bring this great title, which holds such a special place in our hearts, to a new generation of players,” said Raven Software’s studio head Brian Raffel. “With Modern Warfare Remastered, we’re able to relive our favorite campaign levels and multiplayer moments in full HD visuals and remastered audio.  No detail was too small, as the team pored over every aspect of development.”

To celebrate the announcement, a new trailer was released. Check it out below:

PlayStation LifeStyle’s Paulmichael Contreras enjoyed his time with the remastered version of Call of Duty 4, and had this to say in his impressions:

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare may be old by, well, modern standards, but its gameplay holds up very well. Controls are responsive, and missing your target is usually simply your own fault. With a graphical overhaul that ensures buttery-smooth play, if you were a fan of the original, you can expect to lose plenty of time replaying this classic.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered was originally only available as part of Infinite Warfare‘s special edition. Activision was largely criticized over this move, and had previously stated that the only way to check out the remastered title was through getting Infinite Warfare. Obviously plans have changed, and now the game will be available on PlayStation 4 on June 27. It does not include the Modern Warfare Remastered Variety Map Pack, and release plans for other platforms will be announced soon.
