The big news for gamers is the upcoming re-release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which is probably the greatest first-person shooter game created in the past fifteen years. A brand-new version of the game, brought into the new generation of consoles, will be available November 4. The game is being launched alongside the release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, a new entry into the futuristic COD world.
A number of fans have been very vocal about their displeasure that the franchise has taken recently (Black Ops 3, Advanced Warfare, Infinite Warfare) opting for futuristic technology which speeds up gameplay to ridiculous levels. In fact, there have even been forums and discussions about how one might buy Infinite Warfare, download the accompanying Modern Warfare, and then return Infinite Warfare for a refund while keeping the digital version of Modern Warfare. A good (but cheap) idea, sure, but today we learned that Activision will be putting the kibosh on that idea.
According to various sources, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered will require the disc or digital version for Infinite Warfare to be on the hard drive you’re playing.
Modern Warfare Remastered is a full game download (game disc must be inserted to play Modern Warfare Remastered.
It makes a ton of sense for multiple reasons for them to do this, but what are the chances that Modern Warfare is actually going to use the game engine from Infinite Warfare?. That would save a ton of time for the developers to just use one game’s engine and then patch some other art and designs to make it a brand new game.
Obviously, people are going to be upset at anything related to Call of Duty, but this is probably one of the weaker complaints we’ve heard thus far.
