Activision announced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, a complete enhancement of one of the most critically-acclaimed games in history, was made available starting June 27, first on PlayStation 4 in stores. The game includes the full campaign and the 16 multiplayer maps fans know and love from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, all released with stunning high-definition visuals.
If you’re not in the know, Modern Warfare Remastered was part of a bundled released together with last year’s Call of Duty. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare wasn’t that bad of a game but the fatigue was already showing, proved by the lackluster sales. Critics and fans unanimously viewed the campaign as superior to previous offerings. In contrast, the multiplayer, however, was the same run-of-the-mill shooter that the franchise pioneered almost a decade ago. To encourage people to buy the game, Activision bundled it together with the classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, remastered and updated to today’s graphic standards. Before, to play this gem of a game, you’d have to splurge for Infinite Warfare. Now, you can play it as a stand-alone game.
