Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will feature some photo-realistic human characters

Activision has released a new trailer for the upcoming sci-fi shooter Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The trailer shows one of the game in-engine cut scenes, showcasing its highly realistic rendering and animation for its characters.

The trailer comes from early in the game, after a sneak attack on the SATO forces by the evil SetDef terrorist group have crippled the UNSA Retribution, the main spaceship in the game. The game's playable character, Lt. Nick Reyes (as portrayed by The A-Team actor Brian Bloom), takes charge on the bridge of the ship and received new orders from SATO. The trailer also shows other characters as portrayed by David Harewood (Supergirl) and Claudia Christian (Babylon 5). The game will also feature Games of Thrones actor Kit Harrington as its main villain.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is due for release on November 4.

  • It's funny because I was watching an initial gameplay video of battlefield 1, when I got the notification for this article.
  • At least they are not wearing a gingerbread costume with a pink colored gun..
  • I'll wait for infinite warfare & Bf1 get the deals with gold treatment pretty sure it'll be on December. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Something about their eyes isn't right...they either seem too wide open or too glossy from various distances.
  • Yes, the lighting on humans is always "off". I noticed it in the eyes also. Not enough variance in eye shape during conversation. Even though the movement and look were spot on at times, the eyes at times looked stiff. I mean around the eyes not just the eyeballs. Honestly though it's very good work by someone so I'm not complaining!
  • A lot of criticism, But it looks great
  • Everyone will be playing BF1. To bad for them.
  • I think this is, by far, more realistic than current graphics on Infinte warfare http://www.esquireme.com/sites/default/files/images/2016/03/14/COD-BOX.jpg
  • That's not even close to photo realistic.
  • Photo realistic lol I remember reading my 2001 PS2 game cover saying that back then. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android (LG V10 or Nexus 5x)
  • Yes, people actually thought games like GTA 3 and MGS 2 were "photo realistic" back then. Lol!
  • Lol I know 20 years later it's life realistic Posted via the Windows Central App for Android (LG V10 or Nexus 5x)
  • I don't remember people thinking that. The first game that everyone was talking about being photo realistic was Crysis.
  • Nicely done.
  • It's been along time since I played this game and it seems like that's going to continue to be. Go back to WW2 or modern day and ill be buying :)
  • Realistic or not Ill pass on this one.
  • I passed bo3 this one I will get.
  • Hope they get the eyes better
  • I still feel disconnected. Head does not move right at times, especially on the lady walking. Not sure why, but in my mind, I always come back to hl2 and remember how good faces looked back then. They probably look bad if i play it all over again now.
  • Currently the game to beat for character realism is Uncharted 4, but the motion capture make a significant difference in that. The problem with this stuff is that the closer to photo realism they get without actually hitting it the more "uncanny valley" everything looks. Games like LA Noire did well with animation and facial expressions but the texture detail just wasn't available, this game goes the opposite route, the animation is stiff and disjointed, the textures are almost there, but also the models look a bit off, proportions seem wrong. Final Fantasy The Spirit Within is a good example of getting it almost there but not quite. It's a pretty amazing feat that games are getting to this point though.
  • This will be the first CoD since world at war that I will buy.
  • Uncanny Valley anyone?
  • Haha! When that old woman walked in I KNEW I recognised her, then I just read it's Claudia Christian from B5.
