If you own Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for Xbox 360, it's time to suit back up. Larry Hryb, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, announced today that Modern Warfare is now playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was a notable shift in the franchise when it was released in 2007, moving away from the World War II setting in prior entries in favor of modern combat. The single-player portion sees players taking control of several different characters across a campaign that takes place in the modern Middle East, Russia, and more. The game was also widely praised for its multiplayer mode, which went on to influence subsequent multiplayer shooters.
Curiously, Modern Warfare's addition to the backward compatible list follows the standalone release of the remastered version last year. If you've already dropped cash on the remaster, then there's probably little reason to go back and play the Xbox 360 version now. However, this is a solid addition for those who held out or still have the original lying around.
In any case, both the original Modern Warfare and the remastered version are currently on sale as part of Microsoft's Spring Sale. The Xbox 360 version can currently be picked up for $14.99 (regularly $16.99), while the remaster is currently available for $27.99 (regularly $39.99).
