Infinity Ward returns to the helm in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Set in the distant future when humanity has become a space-faring species, capable on interplanetary travel and creating reliable AI. Infinite Warfare is the next step in the evolution of Activision's hit first-person shooter franchise.
Freeform space combat, revamped class mechanics, stunning visuals and solid campaign, the new Call of Duty has all the markings of an engaging, energetic science-fiction action game. Futuristic setting Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare moves the technologically advanced setting known from Advanced Warfare further along. Now set in a distant future, Infinite Warfare takes full advantage of this opportunity.
You will take command of a massive military spacecraft serving as the hub location, pilot a customizable jet-fighter through space battles, use energy weapons and wear advanced battlesuits granting you unique abilities. There is even an robotic companion featuring fully functioning and stable AI. Infinite Warfare gameplay is a complete package for any enthusiast of first-person shooters and science-fiction.
Gripping single-player campaign The main character of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is Nick Reyes, formerly a Lieutenant of SCAR (Special Combat Air Recon), now a field-promoted Captain of military carrier Retribution and, by extension, the troops stationed aboard it. As some of the last defenses of Earth, they will fight against the forces of fanatical Settlement Defense Front. SetDef is led by Salen Koch, voice-acted by Kit Harrington of the Game of Thrones fame.
The story will be divided into core story missions progressing the plot and numerous optional side missions fleshing out the setting and letting the players visit more locations. The missions will take place across various planets and even asteroids of the Solar System. Improved class-based gameplay Multiplayer classes are based on Combat Rigs.
Each rig is a specialized cybernetic suit granting the wearer's powerful abilities as well as weapons and tactics unique to each rig. There are six Rigs available in Infinite Warfare, suited to serve different purposes on the battlefield. Warfighter - the mid-range, assault class, perfect for players who love being on the offensive FTL - incredibly fast combat rig, suited for players enjoying run-and-gun playstyle and close encounters Merc - the heavy weapons specialist, slower, but with powerful damage output to make up for it Phantom - the sniper class, excellent for stealth and long-range combat Stryker - equipped for team-support and enemy suppression Synaptic - a remotely operated drone equipped with SMGs and prepared for close quarters combat For further customization all Combat Rigs can pick one each from 3 available Payloads and 3 Traits unique to each Rig.
While no Call of Duty game has matched the comprehensive excellence of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the exploits of Reyes and Ethan are at least as memorable and moving as any deeds from “Soap” MacTavish and John Price during from the series' heyday.Read more...
To be able to walk around your own starship, to enter your quarters and study SDF command structure, to choose your new mission yourself – all these possibilities feel so fresh for Call of Duty. [Issue#214, p.68]
Infinity Ward devs are back, and they bring a typical Call of Duty game – not a miracle, but it certainly will satisfy all kinds of players. [Issue #269]
The campaign is ignorable and the multiplayer needs a little technical work to be as good as last year’s, but the overly silly Zombies mode keeps me coming back. It may not stand out in a year that’s been crowded with great shooters, but it still produces that familiar Call of Duty action.Read more...
Call of Duty needs freshening up. Infinite Warfare has a surprisingly good single-player campaign and a still really good multiplayer. Unfortunately all of this looks like minimal touch ups on a gameplay core that hasn't changed in a decade. Players seem to think the same - new CoD debuted in a disappointing fashion, plus the console version behaves better than the PC one.Read more...
In the year that had so many good FPS games, Call of Duty failed to bring anything of importance to the medium. The tried and tested formula feels rather stale this year and we might've gotten to a point when the series should just take a break until it figures out what it wants to do.Read more...
A beautiful action movie that punishes improvisation, with under-populated multiplayer that can’t compete with a nine-year-old game.Read more...
