There have been mixed reactions to Infinity Ward’s announcement and trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, if we were to judge by the downvotes on YouTube. Sales projections are still solid for the new title that is going to feature some futuristic space action as opposed to the traditional boots-on-the-ground combat, so it is not easy to tell what the player base’s opinion of Infinite Warfare really is at this point.
However, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has gotten everyone excited, and it will come packaged with Digital Deluxe, Legacy and Legacy Pro editions of Infinite Warfare. Not surprisingly, in fact, the hype for a remastered version of an old game is going strong, mostly due to the fact that Modern Warfare is, arguably, still the best Call of Duty game.
At its prime, Modern Warfare had innovative features that many games lacked, and its subtlety, simplicity of weapons and combat roles combined with the changes of pace and setting and some shocking moments made the game fresh and gave it immense replayability, much removed from an explosive crowd-pleaser that the franchise is today.
Initial impressions of the remastered game are starting to roll in, and it seems that experiencing all the nuances of the classic Modern Warfare again, but with amazing graphics and physics will be a real treat, equally so for the old fans and the younger generation that did not have the chance to play it.
