Initially, Modern Warfare Remastered came bundled together in the Legacy or higher edition copies of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which launched in 2016. The stand alone version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Remastered will release on June 29 2017, according to Activision. Some fans of the Call of Duty franchise were upset that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered could only be purchased as a bonus for the higher end and more expensive copies of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Activision releasing Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered as a stand-alone title is not only smart for business, but should introduce a surge of new players that were waiting for the game to become standalone. For those curious as to what the remastered edition of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has over the 2007 original can view Activision’s excerpt below explaining the changes:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered features fully improved texture resolution and detail, revamped animation, remastered audio, and much more. Fans will relive the full, iconic story campaign as they’re transported around the globe with Capt. Price, Gaz and Soap across all the missions from the original game, including “All Ghillied Up,” “Charlie Don’t Surf,” and “Crew Expendable.” Players will also experience the online multiplayer mode that redefined Call of Duty by introducing killstreaks, XP, Prestige and more, and battle head-to-head in the fan-favorite maps from the original multiplayer mode, including classics such as “Crash,” “Backlot” and “Crossfire.”
The remastered title released to criticism for being bundled with Infinite Warfare, yet the remastered tile showed a very active player base that reached over a million players on PlayStation platforms alone. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be available at retail and digitally on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Marketplace and Steam.
