It was 2007 when Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came out. I was making the momentous transition from middle school to high school at the time, and the game quickly became my friend group’s drug of choice. While other guys in my suburb town were out making awkward advances on pubescent girls, my group of friends spent literally days of our lives at home playing Call of Duty 4 on Xbox Live.
I’m not particularly proud of the amount of time I wasted playing Call of Duty 4, but I tell you this to convey how utterly life-changing this game is. And that’s why Activision is releasing a remastered version of this classic shooter for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 4th.
Except after Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered was announced, its makers revealed that the game would only feature 10 maps. And predictably gamer nerds lost their minds as only gamer nerds can. So today the makers of the game clarified that the other 6 maps in the original game will be made available as free downloadable content come December, and gamers everywhere rejoiced.
While I no longer have the time to play video games because I’m now a mature adult, I’m glad that a new generation of timid teenagers will get to experience the joys of Call of Duty 4.
Oh who am I kidding? I write articles on the internet to pay my bills, and otherwise have a ton of free time. I’ll be pwning noobs in Pipeline like it’s my second job once the new maps drop.
