Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Call of Duty… In space. Infinity Ward’s latest addition to the Warfare sub-series, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sends you into the distant future, where you take control of the United Nations Space Alliance’s Captain Reyes as you battle to secure control of Earth’s outer-space outposts, which have come under attack from radical militants.

Every November gamers are hit with the next installment of the action packed Call of Duty series. This year’s title, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, throws you off into outer space for the first time, as you battle for control of the Solar System with the United Nations Space Alliance.
The game’s release date has already been confirmed as November 4th – the prime time to ensure that it becomes a Christmas best seller. While anticipation for the title has been lacklustre following its announcement, with a remastered version of fan favourite Call of Duty: Modern Warfare bundled in, the Christmas top spot might not be as big of an ask as it seems.
The biggest change from previous titles is the setting. Infinite Warfare will be the first Call of Duty game with a campaign that transports you not only into the future, but off of planet Earth. While fans aren’t convinced that he change is the right one, it will certainly remove some of the repetitiveness of previous titles and provide the series with a completely new direction to explore.
The famed Zombies mode was previously only available in the Call of Duty: Black Ops sub-series, as well as the original Call of Duty: World at War game, due to the fact that there are several different companies developing titles for the franchise at the same time.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will break the mould, becoming the first game in the Warfare sub-series to feature a Zombies game mode. However, Infinity Ward have taken a different approach to the flesh-eating monsters that we love so much – Zombies in space, it turns out, are very different to zombies on earth.
Set in a 1980’s amusement park, complete with attractions, arcades and roller-coasters, players must work together to fight off a horde of the (not so) terrifying undead, armed with new weapons, tailor made for zombie-blasting.
Those that choose to order the game ahead of release will be treated to a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare pre-order pack, containing an exclusive Zombies in Spaceland weapon skin, player card and a Fate & Fortune card pack, as well as a bonus map, Terminus, a favourite among fans of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 title.
MODERN WARFARE: REMASTERED
Despite a number of top titles proceeding it, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare remains a fan favourite to this day. If you’re not convinced by Infinite Warfare’s space age setting, perhaps a remastered version of Modern Warfare will get your attention. The additional game will be given to those that purchase the Legacy edition of Infinite Warfare, complete with updated graphics and game physics.
