Activision has revealed more information on the upcoming first-person shooter Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. The game will include a Zombie co-op mode, but details have yet to be revealed.
As we have previously reported, the latest installment of the Call of Duty series, developed by Infinity Ward, takes place in the future. The single-player campaign will feature both ground and space-based combat. Activision's blog site has the details on the game's storyline.
After the nations of Earth unified as the United Nations Space Alliance to colonize the solar system and seek out precious resources, a fanatical and relentless enemy faction emerged from those living on the frontier—the Settlement Defense Front. Now, the Settlement Defense Front has struck back at the UNSA and sparked full-scale war. Players will take command of a UNSA warship and fight the Settlement Defense Front on Earth and across the reaches of our solar system through Call of Duty's hallmark boots-on-the-ground firefights and epic new scenarios, like zero-g infantry combat and piloting a jet fighter both in and out of atmosphere.
The game's main player character is Captain Reyes, who commands the UNSA Retribution:
Throughout the campaign, the Retribution will serve as a central hub for players between missions and as they travel to various destinations. The environment can be explored and will evolve as the events of the story unfold. From the Retribution, players can launch story missions or raids on enemy ships. During the campaign, players will also pilot an advanced space combat-ready fighter known as a Jackal in intense in-atmosphere and zero-g dogfights. What's more, the experience has been designed to be seamless as you transition from fighting on the ground, into ships, and to and from the Retribution with few visible loading times.
Naturally, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will have a multiplayer mode, with details to be announced later, and it will also have a new version of the series' popular Zombie mode:
This year, Infinity Ward is bringing an all-new take on Zombies that features a unique story, universe, gameplay features, and mechanics separate from Infinite Warfare's campaign and multiplayer modes. Additional info about Zombies will be shared later this year.
It sounds like there might not be any "Zombies in space" with this mode, but you never know. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be released November 11. Some versions of the game will be bundled with a code to download Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered, a graphically revamped build of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare with the full campaign and 10 of its multiplayer maps. Here's the breakdown of those versions:
- Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition and Digital Legacy Edition – Includes both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, SRP $79.99.
- Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Digital Deluxe Edition – Includes Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Season Pass, SRP $99.99.
- Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Pro Edition – Includes Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, Season Pass, collectible Steelbook official game soundtrack and additional digital items, SRP $119.99.
Activision has not announced whether or not it will sell Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare without Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered.
